Miya is the signature cover girl of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. Despite her youthful look, she already lived for thousands of years—thanks to her elven nature. The many years she lived weren’t mostly pleasant because of the seemingly endless wars that their people had to endure.
The Moon Goddess gathered most of her strength to create a Lunar Aegis that will serve as their protection. She fell into a deep slumber upon its completion. This finally fulfilled Miya’s dream of a peaceful life. The elves thrived and enjoyed serenity in Azyra Woodlands free from any external threats.
Several years later, the empire of the Abyss was successfully expanding but had a stalemate with the humans. The elves had an internal conflict about joining the war or not because Estes believed that they should help battle the demon army. Having suffered many years of wars in her lifetime, Miya chose to remain in their domain and just continue to defend their land.
However, although the Lunar Aegis is strong enough to prevent the spread of corruption in their territory, it’s not strong enough to stop the large Army of the Abyss. Miya had deep regrets for not joining the fight against the demons early on because they now have become more powerful. She prayed earnestly to the Moon Goddess for protection but heard no answer. When Balmond’s orc army and Thamuz’s demons were closing in, Miya felt that she had no choice but to arm herself with her silver bow and join the fight.
Miya is known for her splitting empowered arrows. Her ghostly stealth ability can help her escape death or shock an unsuspecting foe while her rapid attacks can swiftly tear down any target. Her painful attacks combined with speed, stun and elusiveness make her one of the most formidable marksmen of Mobile Legends.
The Global Top 1 Miya player Queen of Miya will be our reference for this guide. We’ll examine what’s his best build, emblem, spell and effective practices that have placed him on top of the fold. Congratulations to Queen of Miya for reaching the top spot for Miya!
|Attack SPD Ratio
Miya’s attack speed increases by 5% every time she hits her target. This could stack up to five times within four seconds.
When the Attack Speed bonus full stack is reached, her basic attack will have the Moonlight Shadow attack increase that deals 30 + 30% Total Physical Attack Damage. Take note that this can have critical damage but no attack effects.
Miya’s arrows are split into three on each Basic Attack. This deals 10 + 100% Total Physical Attack Damage to the main target while the rest gets 30% damage. This will last for four seconds and can trigger attack effects.
Miya launches an empowered arrow that can stun the enemies for 1.2 seconds in a selected area. This can deal 90 + 45% Total Physical Attack Damage. Upon landing, the arrow splits into 8 smaller arrows that can slow the enemies by 30% for 2 seconds. It also deals 30 + 15% Total Physical Attack Damage.
Miya immediately removes her debuffs, boosts her Movement Speed by 35% then goes into stealth mode for two seconds.
This mode will be canceled when an attack is initiated. When her stealth mode is over, she’ll have a full stack of Moon Blessing.
Best Miya Build
Miya Emblem Set
Custom Marksman Emblem set
Bravery – Physical Attack +12.00
Agility – Movement Speed +6.00%
Quantum Charge – Dealing damage with Basic Attacks increases Movement Speed by 40% for 1.5 seconds and restores HP by 30% Physical Attack. This effect has a 10-second cooldown.
This spell will put Miya’s Attack Speed at an insane level. She can kill an enemy so fast without giving it a chance to retaliate even a little—at least for squishy heroes. What’s also great about this spell is its fast cooldown. You can also use it to quickly kill the Crab, Turtle and even the Lord.
To minimize deaths for Miya, this battle spell is a good next option. If you used her ultimate skill to activate Moon Blessing quickly but suddenly got caught up in a situation where you need to escape—you can use this as a backup.
Miya Gameplay Tips
Skill Upgrade Priority
First Priority – First Skill: Moon Arrow
Main Priority – Ultimate: Hidden Moonlight
Least Priority – Second Skill: Arrow of Eclipse
Second Skill + First Skill + Inspire
This will be your first combo at the start of the game. It’s best done while hiding in the bush. This combo aims to force your enemy to return home to heal so you can have a farming and level-up advantage.
Ultimate Skill + Second Skill + First Skill + Inspire
This is effective in assassinating squishy heroes like marksmen and assassins. Despite being a marksman, Miya can turn into an assassin with this combo especially when she’s ahead in level and items.
Basic Attacks + Ultimate Skill + Second Skill + First Skill + Inspire
This is best used when assisting a teammate or joining a team fight. During a clash, one of your enemies might suddenly abandon fighting your teammate to jump at you since most enemies tend to prioritize marksmen because of their squishiness. This is where you use your ultimate skill to run away and escape. When the enemy gets back to your teammate, that’s where you run back into the battle to freeze it then barrage it with your first skill and inspire.
Miya Mobile Legends Combat Strategy
Items first. The reason why marksmen are urged to go down the gold lane is that their items are what make them ferocious killers. The goal is to complete your weapon collection as soon as possible because once you achieve that—every basic attack will send a bone-chilling trauma to your enemies. Make sure to help your teammates during clashes as well instead of just farming endlessly like there’s no tomorrow.
Poke. As a marksman, you always have this advantage against melee heroes but since you’ll encounter another marksman in the gold lane, make sure that you’re doing it with less damage taken.
Gank. Use your ultimate skill to get near the unsuspecting enemy then freeze it with your second skill. While frozen, unleash your arrow barrage with your fully stacked passive, first skill and inspire. Your squishy opponent will never get the chance to even fight back. If you’re dealing with a tank or a heavily armored fighter—use the combo below.
Proper positioning. Most mages tend to cast their skills forward so try to avoid that by positioning Miya slightly on the side. The safest approach is to wait for your enemies to cast their skills to the tank before showing up at the party.
