Aamon is the Duke of Shards of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. The House of Paxley had a great celebration the day he was born because the royal family will finally have an heir. The celebrated child was given the name Aamon by his father. Little did he know that an enormous responsibility awaited him.
Aamon received greater discipline from his parents compared to his siblings since he is the next in line to assume leadership. At the young age of 18, he unexpectedly had to take up the mantle. After his parents got lost in a sandstorm during their trip to Altair, they were assumed to be dead. The role of a nobleman was too great for his age yet he somehow managed to fulfill the role.
He paid special attention to his brother Gusion because everyone saw him as a good-for-nothing troublemaker. Instead of reprimanding him, he was kind in his guidance. His biggest concern is the dark mark that appeared on Gusion’s nape because it’s a curse in their bloodline. Whoever possesses it will be attached to an evil entity that’s why he did his best to hide him from the people while he looks for a solution for the curse mark.
Aamon is an assassin hero who specializes in chase and magic. He is feared for his combo of cloaking that is followed up by surprise burst attacks. His skills are composed or conceal, buff and burst. Proper execution and combo of his evasive movements and swift attacks will surely make him a formidable slayer in the game.

Jungle. Like most assassins, it’s recommended to take the core player role for Aamon. Prioritize getting the buffs and unlocking your ultimate skill as soon as possible to be an effective help to your teammates. Take advantage of your burst damage to secure the Turtle which guarantees a team-wide upgrade.
Roam. Always prepare to help a teammate by roaming as you farm in the jungle. Monitor the map for a potential clash and then prepare to leave a jungle monster if there’s a need to immediately help a colleague.
Ambush. Stealthily position yourself in the common bush area to give a hint to your ally that you’re there to help when a duel starts. If the enemy bites the trigger, give your ally an advantage by helping out eliminate the enemy.
Evade. Avoid heroes with stuns and strong resistance like Eudora, Tigreal and Badang early in the game because they have a high chance of taking you down. Focus on weak enemies at first until you are strong enough to face difficult opponents.
Team Fight. As an assassin, your goal is to prioritize taking down the highest damage dealer which is the marksman. Once a team clash starts, utilize your stealth ability to hunt down the marksman. If you managed to kill the marksman but got attacked by its allies, you need to back off a bit with the help of your cloaking ability again so you can heal and then jump back into the battle again.
