Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has a new update now available for testing on the advanced server. Beta Patch 1.7.74 tweaked some of Novaria’s skills. Is she now better to use than before?

Is Novaria Deadlier Now?

Novaria is a mage in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang that can unleash a series of attacks from a safe distance. Despite that advantage, the developers feel that her kit needs a bit of tweaking and that is the main focus of Beta Patch 1.7.74.

Her passive has gained a new effect where her Astral Spheres continuously slow nearby enemies by 30%. When they explode, they deal magic damage equal to 240-500 plus 48% total magic power plus 4%-6% of the target's max HP (scales with skill level).

Aside from that, her Astral Spheres' explosion damage growth has increased from 200% to 250% based on travel distance. In other words, her Astral Spheres become more damaging as they travel farther from Novaria. It’s also worth noting that this skill can now hit multiple targets.

Astral Echo, Novaria’s ultimate ability, has a new effect as well. When used, Novaria’s second skill has no mana cost, allowing her to cast the skill freely for the entire duration of her ultimate. However, the mana cost of the ultimate itself has increased from 150-300 to 350-750 (based on level).

Judging from these changes, it seems that the developers want to emphasize her role as a long-range mage, especially with the tweaks for her second skill and ultimate.
