How to use Helcurt ML: Best Item Build, Spell, Emblem

I am death incarnate!

Helcurt, the Shadowbringer, is a deadly assassin in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. Hailing from the Abyss, this shadowy creature utilizes darkness to stalk and eliminate his enemies. Helcurt possesses a moderate to high skill floor.

While his abilities are relatively simple to understand, timing his ultimate and positioning for maximum effect require practice and experience. His strengths lie in silencing enemies, explosive burst damage, and the ability to disrupt the entire enemy team, especially their backline carries. However, he’s quite squishy and vulnerable to crowd control effects.

Helcurt ML Skills

Helcurt Mobile Legends skill list: Shadow of Styx, Hidden Terror, Deadly Stinger, Dark Night Falls

Passive: Shadow of Styx

When Helcurt damages an enemy, they gain a temporary stack of Shadow. Enemies with stacks are silenced, unable to cast skills. This is core to Helcurt’s kit, allowing him to shut down enemy mages and fighters.

Using his skills reduces their cooldowns for each Shadow stack on the enemy, leading to more frequent skill usage.

First Skill: Hidden Terror

Helcurt vanishes and reappears in a designated location dealing damage to enemies in the area. This can be used for quick poke and repositioning in fights.

Second Skill: Deadly Stinger

Helcurt throws poison darts in a cone, dealing multiple hits of damage and slowing enemies hit. This is his main burst damage source.

Ultimate: Dark Night Falls

Helcurt shrouds the entire map in darkness for a short time, reducing vision for the enemy team. Helcurt and his allies gain a significant movement speed boost and attack speed buff within the darkness.

Helcurt ML Build

Best Helcurt item build Mobile Legends: Warrior Boots, Blade of the Heptaseas, Demon Hunter Sword, Hunter Strike, Malefic Roar, Rose Gold Meteor

This Helcurt build focuses on maximizing his burst damage against tanky enemies. Warrior Boots and Rose Gold Meteor offer some protection, but he remains glass cannon-esque. Blade of the Heptaseas, Hunter Strike, and Malefic Roar provide physical penetration and damage to eliminate squishy targets, while Demon Hunter Sword helps shred tanks due to its unique passive. This build makes Helcurt a potent threat to the enemy backline and front line, but requires careful positioning to survive. However, against heavy burst damage or enemy healing, sacrificing some damage for items like Immortality or Necklace of Durance might be necessary.

Helcurt emblem build, Mobile Legends: Assassin talent with Swift, Master Assassin, Lethal Ignition

Custom Assassin Emblem

This Custom Assassin Emblem build focuses on enhancing Helcurt’s burst damage and mobility, a strong choice for maximizing his aggressive playstyle.

  • Swift: Increases attack speed. This makes Helcurt’s basic attacks faster and synergizes nicely with the attack speed boost from his ultimate (Dark Night Falls), letting him hit harder and apply stacks of his silence passive (Shadow of Styx) more quickly.
  • Master Assassin: Provides extra damage to enemy heroes below a certain HP threshold, giving Helcurt a massive burst execution potential as an assassin.
  • Lethal Ignition: Triggers a powerful burning effect whenever Helcurt uses a skill. This adds extra damage to his combos, helping him finish off enemies and potentially even pick up multiple kills during team fights.

Helcurt Laning Phase & Gameplay Strategy

Early Game Jungle (First Few Minutes)

  • Prioritize Buff: Start by taking your blue buff. Use Retribution for a faster clear and to gain the cooldown reduction it offers. Then secure the red buff. Both provide essential buffs that boost Helcurt’s damage and mana regeneration.
  • Fast Level 4: Focus on clearing jungle camps and lane minions quickly to reach level 4 as fast as possible. This unlocks your ultimate (Dark Night Falls) which drastically increases your gank potential and map pressure.
  • Gank Lanes with CC: Look for lanes where your teammates have some crowd control (stuns, slows) to set up easy ganks. Helcurt’s silence with his passive makes him highly effective at securing kills with a coordinated teammate.
  • Secure Turtle: When the Turtle spawns, help your team take it down. The extra gold and experience help you snowball your advantage.

Mid Game Rotations & Strategy

  • Silence and Burst: Use your ultimate (Dark Night Falls) to create global ganking opportunities. Coordinate with your team to capitalize on the vision blackout and burst down isolated enemy heroes.
  • Target Priority: Look to take out the enemy’s backline damage dealers (mages, marksmen) first. Your kit is designed to eliminate them quickly and take them out of the fight before they melt your team.
  • Counter Jungling: When you have an advantage, invade the enemy jungle to steal their buff monsters and camps. This denies them crucial resources and delays their progress.
  • Objective Control: Help your team control objectives like the Lord. Helcurt’s burst damage and silence are valuable in team fights around major objectives.

Battle Spell

Mobile Legends Retribution icon, recommended battle spell for Helcurt


Retribution is the best battle spell for a jungling Helcurt because it drastically improves his early jungle clear speed. It deals extra damage to monsters and reduces the cooldown of his next basic attack, making each camp clear much faster. This allows him to reach level 4 and unlock his powerful ultimate (Dark Night Falls) quicker for devastating ganks.
