Layla is the first character any Mobile Legends player has contact with. The character has the role of marksman and specialty in harvesting and is great for those who like to fight in the rear.

Because she is a long-range character and her main source of damage is her basic attacks, Layla requires the player to move and click a lot.

Even being the character of the game's tutorial, many players end up not exploring its full potential. In order not to be one of those people, check out the essentials for playing Layla well below!

Tips on how to play with Layla

  • In the early stages of the game, use Maleficent Bomb as much as you can. The skill is great for bothering opponents and getting kills. However, in the later stages when you are well equipped, your normal attacks will be stronger and faster than the skill.
  • Pay attention not to cancel basic attacks when using Maleficent Bomb. Only cast the ability immediately after a basic attack to optimize its damage.
  • During battles, save the Void Projectile for when your opponents try to flee or if you need to run from the fight yourself. Never forget that the best thing about this skill is its 60% slow.
  • Destructive Shock is one of the most far-reaching abilities in the game. In addition, lightning does monstrous damage, so use it at the beginning of fights to discourage opponents, or at the end when they try to flee. Don't forget that the skill also hits as many enemies as are in front.
  • Always, ALWAYS try to maintain maximum distance in your attacks. So when an opponent comes your way, don't stand still. Run and attack at the same time.
  • Once Destructive Shock is at level 3, the range of your normal attacks extends beyond the range of turrets. Be happy.
  • The best items for Layla are the ones that increase Attack Speed, Physical Attack and Critical Hit chance.
