Saber ML Best Item Build, Spell, Emblem, Strategy Guide

Blooing

Saber, the Codename: Storm, is a powerful assassin in Mobile Legends. As a master of stealth and technological weaponry, he specializes in targeting and eliminating squishy backline heroes like mages and marksmen. Saber possesses a moderately high skill floor, meaning he requires some practice to master his combos and timing. What makes Saber truly powerful is his ability to isolate and quickly burst down a single target. He is an excellent ganker and can turn the tide of a fight by removing the enemy team’s main damage dealer.

Saber ML Skills

Saber Mobile Legends skill list: Enemy's Bane, Orbiting Swords, Charge, Triple Sweep

Passive: Enemy’s Bane

Saber’s attacks reduce an enemy’s physical defence by a significant amount for a few seconds. This makes his follow-up attacks, and those of his teammates hit much harder.

First Skill: Orbiting Swords

Saber releases five swords that orbit around him, dealing damage to nearby enemies on hit. This is his primary skill for clearing waves and poking in lane.

Enhanced Basic Attack: After using this skill, Saber’s next basic attack becomes stronger and dashes through his enemy.

Second Skill: Charge

Saber dashes in a target direction, dealing damage to enemies along the way. This skill is crucial for chasing enemies or escaping and offers Saber a significant basic attack boost after use.

Ultimate: Triple Sweep

Saber charges at the target enemy hero, knocking them airborne for a short duration and striking them three times. This is his main burst attack for taking down squishy targets.

Item Build

Best Saber item build Mobile Legends: Tough Boots, Hunter Strike, War Axe, Endless Battle, Immortality, Blade of Despair

This Saber build focuses on turning him into a high-burst assassin. Tough Boots offer some defence against crowd control and magic damage. Hunter Strike and War Axe provide cooldown reduction to increase skill usage and offer penetration. Endless Battle boosts various stats, including true damage for some sustain. Immortality provides a safety net for Saber’s risky dives, while Blade of Despair takes his damage to insane levels. This build makes Saber a nightmare for squishy enemies, letting him eliminate them with a single combo.

  • Hunter Strike

Saber emblem build, Mobile Legends: Assassin talent with Swift, Seasoned Hunter, Lethal Ignition

Custom Assassin Emblem

  • Swift: Increased attack speed allows Saber to quickly stack his passive (Enemy’s Bane) for armour reduction and helps him trigger his enhanced basic attacks more frequently.
  • Seasoned Hunter: Saber benefits heavily from this talent. Each unique hero kill grants stacks of physical attack and cooldown reduction, allowing him to snowball during the mid-game where he shines.
  • Lethal Ignition: This perfectly complements Saber’s burst playstyle. His skills will trigger a burning effect, dealing significant additional damage over time – this can make the difference when trying to finish off a weakened target.

Saber Gameplay Tips and Strategy

The worst thing about Saber is that he’s only strong in the early to mid-game and not in the late game. Take advantage of your strength in the early game to dominate the enemy core to spearhead the team’s gold and lead you to victory.

Whether laning in the mid or gold lane, Saber’s early game focuses on fast wave clear with his Orbiting Swords skill and poking the enemy laner when safe. Look for opportunities to rotate and assist with ganks. If playing in the jungle, prioritize using Retribution on camps to speed up your farm and stay healthy. The core focus for jungle Saber is ganking often; coordinate with teammates to ambush enemies in other lanes with your ultimate. Secure objectives like Turtle and Lord whenever possible as well. Always remember that Saber excels at bursting down squishy enemies, so prioritize taking out enemy mages and marksmen when the opportunity arises.

Note: Use your ULT on the enemy’s core or support ONLY. 

Battle Spell

Execution

Mobile Legends Execution icon, recommended battle spell for Saber

Execute is a strong battle spell choice for Saber because it amplifies his ability to secure kills. While Saber excels at bursting down squishy enemies, sometimes they’re left with a sliver of health. Execute lets him deal that final blow, ensuring kills aren’t lost and allowing him to snowball his early game lead. This spell is particularly potent against enemy teams with squishy heroes, but it becomes less effective against tanky lineups.

Conclusion

Saber is one of the strongest assassins in the Land of Dawn that can one-shot kill an enemy with proper item build and positioning. And just like any other assassin, he can be very vulnerable, especially with high crowd-control enemies like Eudora, Aurora, Atlas, etc. Buying defence items and or having a spell like Purify can be really helpful to counter these CC heroes.
