Minotaur is the Son of Minos of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. His story began in the Agelta Drylands’ prosperous state named Minoa. The prince of Minoa, Minotaur, was a skilled warrior who was known for his strength and rage. However, his savagery and impulsive behavior often led him into trouble.
One day, Minotaur was challenged to a duel by a mysterious figure from a foreign land. He accepted the challenge without hesitation, but he was quickly defeated by his opponent. In a fit of rage, Minotaur mortally wounded his father, the king.
Consumed by shame and regret, Minotaur exiled himself to the Minoan Labyrinth. He spent many years there, training and learning to control his rage. Eventually, he was able to tap into his raging powers at will, and he emerged from the Labyrinth a changed man.
However, when Minotaur returned to Minoa, he found that his state had been destroyed. His people were gone, and his father was dead. He vowed to rebuild Minoa and avenge his father’s death.
Minotaur set out on a journey to find his lost kin and rebuild the Minoan civilization. Along the way, he met many challenges, but he never gave up hope. Eventually, he was able to reunite with his people and restore Minoa to its former glory.
Minotaur is a Tank/Support hero specializing in Crowd Control. He has high Durability and Control Effect but low Offense. Minotaur’s skills are composed of Buff, Area of Effect, Crowd Control and Heal. Enemies fear his Ultimate Skill that can slow and knock up a large group of enemies in a large area. With the right technique, combos and build, you can optimize your Minotaur usage in the game.

Best Minotaur Build
Minotaur Emblem Set
Custom Support Emblem set
Agility – Movement Speed +6.00%
Gift – Healing Effect +10.00%
Pull Yourself Together – Respawn is reduced by 15%, while Battle Spell cooldown is reduced by 15%.
This battle spell was selected Global Top 1 Minotaur player of Mobile Legends. It fits his choice of emblem because it reduces the cooldown of this battle spell and increases its healing feature. This perfectly fits the nature of Minotaur’s role of healing the group.
Other top players are using Flicker for a more offensive approach. This can be combined with his First Skill and Ultimate Skill for a surprise group stun.
Skill Upgrade Priority
First Priority – First Skill: Despair Stomp
Main Priority – Ultimate Skill: Minoan Fury
Least Priority – Second Skill: Motivation Roar
First Skill + Basic Attacks + Second Skill + Basic Attacks
This is a recommended early-game combo before reaching level 4. You can do this while hiding inside the bush to give your target a surprise stun. The second step is to deal with Basic Attacks because you need to have a reduced HP as you fight before you can use the Second Skill.
First Skill + Basic Attacks + Second Skill + Ultimate Skill + First Skill + Second Skill + Basic Attacks
This could end up becoming your main combo. What’s great about Minotaur’s recent revamp is that the cooldown of both your First Skill and Second Skill will be reset the moment you use his Ultimate Skill. This is the reason you need to use both of them before using your Ultimate Skill.
First Skill + Basic Attacks + Ultimate Skill + Second Skill + Basic Attacks + First Skill + Basic Attacks
This combo is almost the same as above but you’re delaying your use of the First Skill in the last part. Its purpose is to reserve it just in case your target tries to run and escape.
These are just some of the common combos you can use for Minotaur but the sequence of the skills will always depend on your scenario. There are times when you need to start with your Ultimate Skill to protect yourself from Crowd Control attacks and other related situations.
Protect. The first main role of a tank is to protect the highest damage dealer which is the Marksman. Join the Marksman at the start of the game and keep it protected from assassins and fighters. You also need to help the Marksman secure the crab and the minions so it will earn gold quicker and level up faster. Tank and Marksman heroes complement one another. Your damage is low but your durability is high which is the exact opposite of the Marksman.
Spam. Since your emblem reduces the cooldown of your Revitalize and increases the healing power of your Second Skill, don’t hesitate to keep on using them to help your teammates. You also have a third healing power which comes by default so you have plenty of medical tools to stay in the game.
Gank. His Crowd Control skills are perfect for ganking. Make sure that your backups are near enough before engaging in a battle. Since you’re bulky and heavily armored, you can check the bushes for an assassin because you can withstand its attacks. Get your Ultimate Skill ready just in case enemy reinforcements arrive. You can knock them up while your allies attack them.
Team Fight. This is where Minotaur can stand out because aside from his wide area of slow and knock-up ability, he also has a Crowd Control immunity. If possible, prioritize targeting the enemy Mage with the knock-up from your First Skill and then immediately follow it up with your Ultimate Skill to prevent it from immobilizing you with Crowd Control.
