Do you like using Esmeralda in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang? If your answer is yes, then this guide is for you!

As the Astrologer, Esmeralda needs to be equipped with the proper items in order to harness the full power of the stars and the moon. Fortunately, this guide provides item build ideas for you to use so you can lead Esmeralda to victory.

Item Build Ideas for Esmeralda

Without further ado, here are three item builds that synergize well with Esmeralda’s stellar cosmic influence. You can follow them precisely or even tweak them a little bit. Do whatever it takes to be a legend!

  1. Cosmic Fury
  2. Astral Sentinel
  3. Starmoon Grace

1. Cosmic Fury

Hell hath no fury like a sorceress wielding the cosmic force of the heavenly bodies. Esmeralda is her name, and this build brings along with it the full weight of the universe. The Cosmic Fury Item Build offers a stellar concentration of magic power. It’s meant to destroy as it is Esmeralda’s most offensive build.

Purpose of Each Item

The Demon Shoes ensure that she never runs out of mana. This is important because all of her skills are spammable and thus consume a tremendous amount of mana. As for the rest of the items, they serve to raise her magic power and battling prowess to unimaginable heights.

Esmeralda’s basic attack and skills are rather special. They deal both physical and magical damage doubly, granting her the opportunity to maximize the effects of items such as the Calamity Reaper and the Feather of Heaven. Esmeralda’s damage-dealing prowess soars uncontrollably alongside multiple offensive bonuses with these two items in tow.

Then, we have the Concentrated Energy to restore Esmeralda’s HP for battle sustainability. As for the Holy Crystal and the Blood Wings, they exist to further magnify Esmeralda’s magic power. With her magic power at peak, only certain doom awaits her foes!

  • Unique Passive (Nirvana) – Increases HP by 1.5 points for every 1 point of Magic Power.

2. Astral Sentinel

Despite the fact that Esmeralda can deal an infernal measure of destruction, we have one problem: Her crowd control aptitude is weak! It’s easy for enemies to dodge and outrun her. That’s why this build exists. Here is the answer to our calls—the Astral Sentinel Item Build!

Mind you, the Astral Sentinel Item Build doesn’t really offer immeasurable magic power. It only offers a suitable amount. Thus, it can actually hold its own in battle in the long run. What this build offers though is crowd control potential, tenable damage, and high defense.

Purpose of Each Item

The Calamity Reaper is actually enough to augment Esmeralda’s damage-dealing prowess. However, dealing sustained damage is secondary. What we need is an item that will stop enemies in their tracks. Thankfully, we have the Thunder Belt for that!

Next, Esmeralda needs high defense in order for her to survive her hunt for the enemies. The Oracle provides a significant amount of HP and magical defense, as well as an enhancement of her shielding capabilities. On the other hand, the Brute Force Breastplate increases her HP and movement speed, as well as physical defense and magical defense with every strike she unleashes.

Lastly, we have the Blood Wings to reasonably add more weight to her flurry of attacks. Overall, this build is perfectly balanced and highly effective, if I must say so.

Purpose of Each Item

Just like the other builds, the Starmoon Grace Item Build never runs out of mana thanks to the Demon Shoes. Then, we have the Cursed Helmet to provide Esmeralda with a copious amount of HP and magical defense, as well as effect that allows her to sustainably damage her foes with just her mere presence on the battlefield.

Next, we have the Thunder Belt that greatly helps in slowing down enemies, allowing your allies to pummel them whenever they can. You don’t have to worry much about lasting long in battle because the Oracle enhances your shielding capabilities, making your shields even more durable.

The Courage Bulwark is the key to Esmeralda’s supportiveness. It helps in raising the battling capabilities of the whole team whether you rely on its unique passives or its unique active. Lastly, we have the Dominance Ice. This item does not only provide Esmeralda with an improved physical guard, it also slows down enemies considerably.
