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

As the Grand Warden, Hylos needs to be equipped with the proper items so he can harness the power of nature and protect what's important to him. Fortunately, this guide provides item build ideas for you to use so can lead him to victory.

Item Build Ideas for Hylos

Without further ado, here are three item builds that synergize well with Hylos’ majestic power. You can follow them to a tee or even tweak them a little bit. Do whatever it takes to be a legend!

  1. Life Support
  2. Brute Centaur
  3. Last Survivor

1. Life Support

This build transforms Hylos into his most supportive form. By striking a balance between dealing sustained damage, inflicting debuffs, and raising survivability, it becomes possible for Hylos to consistently wreak havoc on the battlefield while making sure that he doesn’t experience an untimely death.

Purpose of the Items

Most items here are for survivability. The reason for that is: “The longer Hylos stays on the battlefield, the better for the whole team!” With this build, Hylos can shave off sizable chunks of HP from the enemies, rendering them weak and vulnerable to your allies’ crucial attacks.

As you can see, I’ve added Dominance Ice to this build not just to raise Hylos’ Armor and Mana but also to further augment his Ring of Punishment and Glorious Pathway skills. The more slowing effects the enemies can suffer, the more chances of impeding and eliminating them. As for the Rapid Boots, it allows Hylos to easily scramble throughout the battlefield and aid his allies as much as he can. As far as being supportive goes, this is the best build for Hylos.

This effect wears off after 5 seconds of the hero taking damage.

2. Brute Centaur

Believe it or not, Hylos has overwhelming potential to become a killing machine. For that purpose, the Brute Centaur build came to existence!

The primary goal of this build is to raise Hylos’ damaging prowess to inconceivable heights. By sacrificing a bit of survivability in exchange for Magic Power, Mana, and Mana Regeneration, Hylos unlocks his full offensive nature!

How This Build Works

Note that I previously stated that this build sacrifices a bit of survivability. While that is true to a certain extent, the added Mana from this build paired with Hylos’ Thickened Blood passive skill more than enough compensates for the lost survivability. In short, the minor reduction in survivability is totally negligible for this build!

Given the fact that this build has its focus on offense, it is important for Hylos to take full advantage of his Ring of Punishment skill. After all, it is the skill that benefits the most from this build. Likewise, Hylos’ basic attack becomes really damaging with this build. I highly recommend that for every skill you use with Hylos, you immediately follow it up with a basic attack to guarantee the highest damage output.

Item Stats and Bonuses

1. Clock of Destiny

  • +60 Magic Power
  • +615 HP
  • +600 Mana

  • Unique Passive (Reincarnate): When Time reaches its fullest stack (10 times), the hero receives an increase of 5% in Magical Attack and an addition of 300 Mana.

2. Demon Shoes

  • +30 Mana Regeneration
  • +40 Movement Speed (Unique)
  • Unique Passive (Mysticism): Regenerates 10% of the hero’s total Mana for every enemy hero kill or assist. On the other hand, eliminating minions regenerates 4% of the hero’s total Mana.

3. Thunder Belt

  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +40 Armor

3. Last Survivor

This build has its highest priority set on durability. It operates on the school of thought that the longer Hylos can survive on the battlefield, the more chances he and his allies have for victory.

How This Build Works

Survivability is the main focus of this build. Unlike the Life Support build, this build provides more cover from crowd control skills and has the Immortal unique passive from Immortality. More than “supportive,” I would consider this build “tanky.” And since Hylos’ primary role is that of a tank, this build bodes fortitude really well for him.

The Last Survivor build was made for initiation. Never have any doubts when using this build. March ahead, initiate an attack, and rally your allies towards victory! There’s nothing to fear because this build ensures that Hylos can persist really long on the battlefield.

Questions & Answers

Question: What emblem do you use on Hylos? Where do you allocate the talent points?

Answer: Personally, I use the Magic Emblem on Hylos for more Mana, HP, HP Regen, Magic Power, and Cooldown Reduction. These benefits fit so well with Hylos' Thickened Blood passive skill and his other magic-based skills.

As for the talent points, I put them on Energy (Mana), Awaken (Mana Regen), Desire (CD Reduction and Spell Vamp), and the Energy Absorption talent skill. The Energy Absorption talent skill allows him to absorb some HP and Mana every time he manages to kill a minion.

I use sort of a mix between the first two builds.

Demon shoes - for speed and mana regen early game

Guardian helmet - so you can stop retreating so much

Cursed helmet - now enemies start dying

Dominance ice - now you laugh as they try to run and slowly die around you

Twilight Armour - now you laugh while their whole team attacks you and and slowly dies around you while their puny attacks bounce off of you like pebbles on an elephant

Blood Wings - you've probably already won before this point, but if not, you will soon.

I know i late, i name my build isekai truck-kun.

This build is focusing on killing enemy backliner/damager first.

Hit hard and fast and go gank other lane if possible, my main consideration is the longer the battle draws the more useless hylos became.

If his mana ran out, he start using his hp which will became riskier as the longer battle drawn out.

I use custom mage emblem and allocating talent to mov speed,magic penetration, and talent 1(90% discount so i can upgrade /buy item faster).

I use sprint battle spell to bypass enemy frontliner /tank and go fast to their main damage dealer.

1) First item is obviously elegant gem, i should be able to get it beforr lvl 4.

2) The next item is rapid boots, you will run out mana fast rather than waiting his mana to recover its better and less risky if you just go back to the base and refill there. Rapid boots should help you back to the lane before enemy minion came so you can properly def your lane/turret. Rapid boots also help you gank other lane in midgame.

3) the next item is lightning truncheon, in term of damage output (dps/damage pers second) Cursed helmet is better but most of the time it needs 4/5 sec before it pay off. The burst damage will chip out enemy backliner hp faster thus lowering their morale. The moment they running/showing their back use your ult(if you havent use it to initiate battle )or sprint to finish the job.

4) next item is molten essence, cause its cheap its use to help hylos clear lane fast without using his 2nd skil thus preserving his mana for battle purpose.

5)next is item for increasing survival considering upgradding to clock of destiny if you are winning gold lead by large margin if not buy sky helmet first.

6.1) after you build sky helmet , build your next item depending on your highest threat. If enemy highest threat is physical dmg. Go build dominance ice( this item is the most compatible with hylos cause it add mana which go well with his passive and lightning teuncheon) or twilight armor if the enemy is lesley or aldous

6.2) if the most threat come from magic dmg. Upgrade elegant gem and molten essence to clock of destiny and cursed helmet to increase you max hp (as long as you not die you can always regen with sky helmet or go to the base and back to the battlefield fast with rapid boots+ 6% extra mov speed from emblem).

7) full build is

..1 rapid boots

..2Lightning truncheon,

..3 Sky helmet,

..4 Dominance ice

..5 Curse helmet

..6 clock of destiny( usually i always upgrade it last because the extra stats (hp,mana and magic power is not too noticable compare to other item) base on utilty/gold spent.

Most of the time I end the game in 11-12 minutes and never complete the set. Probably my end build is

Lightning truncheon, rapid boots, elegant gem, molten essence, sky helment, and probably half build dominance ice.

In case the game last more than 15 minutes and you have extra gold, considering replacing rapid boots with books( 20% cdr,10% mana regen, and 250 hp) dont replace it with demon shoes because your mana consumption will outweight demon shoes mana regeneration even you get all the last hit on minion.

Or immortality if you dont like the idea using books.

I always using Gear set with dominate ice and Corrosive Schyte, which effective slow enemy movement speed and attack speed combine with his 2nd skill.
