Mobile Legends: Yun Zhao Zilong Guide | Best Item Build | Tips & Strategy

Mobile Legend Yun Zhao/ Zilong

Yun Zhao/ Zilong is one of my personal favorites in Mobile Legends and I'm sure many others love him too! But what is the best way to play him well? Read on to find out!

 

Yun Zhao/ Zilong Best Item Build

Yun Zhao Guide 2

 

After exploring different item builds, I believe that the above is the best build for Yun Zhao/ Zilong. The sequence as to which items to get first, begins from left to right. So Swift Boots should be obtained first followed by Thor's Sting and so on.

Note: After the update, there have been changes to items so my new build for Yun Zhao/ Zilong is shown below. There isn't much changes to the build but do take note of the slight differences.

Swift Boots
Swift Boots

Swift Boots

+15% of Attack Speed

Unique Ability
+40 Movement Speed

Both Attack Speed and Movement Speed are crucial for Yun Zhao/ Zilong. His passive can be activated more often with higher Attack Speed. The greater is Yun Zhao/ Zilong's Attack Speed, the greater is the number of Dragon Flurries dealt to enemies. This means more outburst of damage being dealt to enemies.

Yun Zhao/ Zilong should also have higher base Movement Speed. This will greatly boost his Ultimate: Supreme Warrior when it comes to chasing down enemies or making his escape.

Thor's Sting
Thor's Sting

Thor's Sting
(Before)

+30% Attack Speed
+8% Movement Speed
+20% Critical Strike Chance

Unique Ability
After every 5 basic attacks, the next basic attack will deal 125 Magic Damage to 3 enemies, and raises Yun Zhao/ Zilong's Movement Speed by 5% for a short time.

Windtalker
Windtalker

Windtalker
(After)

+25% Attack Speed
+20% Movement Speed
+20% Critical Strike Chance

Unique Ability
After every 5 basic attacks, the next basic attack will deal 125 Magic Damage to 3 enemies, and raises Yun Zhao/ Zilong's Movement Speed by 5% for a short time.

As mentioned earlier about the significance of both Attack Speed and Movement Speed, Windtalker further boosts Yun Zhao/ Zilong's passive skill. More powerful attacks and faster running.

On top of that, it allows Yun Zhao/ Zilong to somewhat possess an Area-of-Effect (AoE) ability that does Magic Damage to 3 enemies. This enables rapid clearing of enemy minion waves; quicker farming.

You want him to farm really fast so that he can purchase other items quicker and be ahead of enemy heroes. This allows Yun Zhao/ Zilong to have items advantage over enemies, which also means increased chances of killing off enemy heroes in clashes.

Blade of Destruction
Blade of Destruction

Blade of Destruction
(Before)

+70 Physical Attack
+20% Critical Strike

Unique Ability
Critical Damage increases by 50%. Critical Strikes will also increase Yun Zhao/ Zilong's Physical Attack by 5%, lasting for 2 seconds.

Berserker's Fury
Berserker's Fury

Berserker's Fury
(After)

+65 Physical Attack
+25% Critical Strike

Unique Ability
Critical Damage increases by 40%. Critical Strikes will also increase Yun Zhao/ Zilong's Physical Attack by 5%, lasting for 2 seconds.

The main purpose of Berserker's Fury is to whip out extremely high critical damage. This item can allow Yun Zhao/ Zilong to almost instantly KO enemies during Critical Strikes!

Imagine Yun Zhao/ Zilong's rapid strikes from his passive skill coupled with higher critical strike rate and damage. The odds of landing critical strikes increases as more blows are being dealt due to high Attack Speed.

And what if all strikes landed are critical? Insane damage output!

Blade of Despair
Blade of Despair

Blade of Despair

+130 Physical Attack
+25% Attack Speed
+10% Critical Strike Chance

Unique Ability
Deals additional 10% of damage to enemies in any abnormal state (stunned, knocked airborne, transformed and disabled).

This is the most expensive Attack item in the game currently, and can be crudely translated as the best Physical Attack item.

Notice the increase in Attack Speed too? Yes, Yun Zhao/ Zilong's passive skill is further optimised!

In short, it transforms Yun Zhao/ Zilong into a beast killing machine!

Fallen Sword
Fallen Sword

Fallen Sword
(Before)

+45 Physical Attack
+ 30% Attack Speed
+10% Lifesteal

Unique Ability
Allows basic attacks to deal 8% of the target’s current HP as additional damage (up to 60 against monsters).

Endless Battle
Endless Battle

Endless Battle
(After)

+50 Physical Attack
+ 25 Magic Power
+350 HP
+400 Mana
+5% Movement Speed
+15% Lifesteal

Unique Ability
After using an ability, next basic attack will deal extra 70% of Physical Attack as True Damage. Effect has a cooldown of 1.5 seconds.

The addition of Lifesteal enables Yun Zhao/ Zilong to stay longer in the field. Longer time in the field means greater farming and mobility to provide assistance during team clashes. It also makes the difference in 1-to-1 battles when it comes to survivability and winning the duel!

Note that Fallen Sword does not give Lifesteal after the update, hence I replaced it with Endless Battle.

Immortality
Immortality

Immortality

+800 HP
+40 Magic Resistance

Unique Ability
Resurrect 2 seconds after dying and get 15% HP with a shield that can absorb 300 - 1000 points of damage. Shield lasts for 3 seconds and the cooldown for resurrection is 3 minutes.

This item provides some defense as well as some sort of insurance for Yun Zhao/ Zilong. Depending on the situation in late game, having a second chance to live briefly might make or break the game.

The first 5 items that Yun Zhao/ Zilong possesses enable him to lash out incredibly large amount of damage to enemy heroes. But that comes with the price of lower defense. Yun Zhao/ Zilong is vulnerable to quick deaths if he does not get to attack first. Thus, Immortality  gives him another chance to strike enemies upon revival.

After resurrection is triggered, due to the cooldown time of 3 minutes, sell Immortality and buy another Attack item like Berserker's Fury or Blade of Despair. This is to increase Yun Zhao/ Zilong's offensive prowess even more while waiting for the resurrection to cooldown.

 

Usually I would have lots of spare cash to make either purchases based on this build. And if Yun Zhao/ Zilong is killed in action, I would sell the extra Attack item and buy Immortality again to reap the resurrection benefit. Then the steps are repeated depending on the match situation.

If you notice, this build revolves heavily on Attack Speed giving a total of 65% boost based on primary item build. I cannot stress enough the importance of building Yun Zhao/ Zilong with high Attack Speed to optimise his passive skill. But since his high damage output comes at the cost of lower defense, it also depends on how you play in game  in order to maximise this build's potential. The video below reinforces the idea of this guide so do take a look to get a better understanding 🙂





Yun Zhao/ Zilong Tips & Strategy

Before Yun Zhao/Zilong enters into a match, I recommend the Jungle Emblem Set and the Battle Spell, Inspire for him. Main reason, Attack Speed again!

Yun Zhao Guide 4

Inspire

Early into the game, avoid feeding carelessly. Get buffs from jungle monsters (near your tower) after clearing wave of enemy minions. Try to catch enemy heroes if they get near to your tower. Signal your intent to attack before catching. With good duo teamwork, getting first blood and a few early enemy hero kills will give your team a favorable head-start.

Once you have destroyed an enemy turret in your lane, go provide assistance to other lanes. Yun Zhao/ Zilong is inherently adept at pushing so prioritise turret destruction over enemy hero kills. Be observant and constantly check the mini-map.

If your allies are engaged in team fights on one side, gauge the distance between Yun Zhao/ Zilong and the clash site. Proceed with turret destruction if Yun Zhao/ Zilong is far while provide assistance to allies if near. It also depends on the situation; if you trust that your allies are able to manage without your help, just focus on breaking down turrets.

Lastly, Yun Zhao/ Zilong is a powerful fighter/assassin and almost always wins any 1-to-1 duels. Thus don't be afraid to chase down enemy heroes; be fierce! Sometimes doing so will scare enemies, causing them to run instead of staying to fight. When that happens, getting the kill is most likely guaranteed. But do not chase down recklessly, be aware of the surroundings for enemy backup.

Hopefully this has been a decent Mobile Legend Yun Zhao Zilong Guide and has helped you get a better idea on how to play Yun Zhao/ Zilong most effectively!
