Are Yve and Chang’e doomed? New item Radiant Armor is every mage’s kryptonite


The perfect item against poke-heavy mages.

Looking at the games being played at Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2021 (MSC 2021), we saw how strong mage heroes are in this patch, with Harith and Lunox leading the most picked hero category.

Victims of OP magician heroes, don’t worry. With today’s release of the latest patch 1.5.88 for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, a new element has been introduced that gives other roles a chance in the fight against Mages: Radiant Armor.

Radiant Armor stats and details

  • +850 health points
  • +6 health regeneration
  • +45 Magic Defense
  • Unique Passive: Holy Blessing: Increases your magic damage reduction by 3-10 when taking magic damage (scales with level), lasts 3 seconds, stacks up to 8.

What makes Radiant Armor a must-buy against mage-heavy builds?

On closer inspection, Radiant Armor has the second highest magic resistance, next to Athena’s Shield.

However, what makes this item such a big threat is that the passive increases the user’s magic damage reduction when they take damage.

This means that each magic damage taken increases the user’s magic defense by three to ten, depending on what level you are at. That adds up to 125 magic resist at max level, the highest in the game.

This is a big nerf against DPS mage heroes like Chang’e and Yve who rely on combos that deal continuous magic damage.

It’s also effective against burst mages like Lunox and Harith as it also gives a significant HP boost.
