Mobile Legends Minotaur Item Build Guide

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

As the Son of Minos, Minotaur needs to be equipped with the proper items in order for him to unleash the greatest magnitude of his fury. Fortunately, this guide provides item build ideas for you to use so you can lead Minotaur to victory.

Without further ado, here are three item builds that synergize well with Minotaur’s raging demeanor. You can follow them perfectly or even tweak them a little bit. Do whatever it takes to be a legend!

Monster Fury Item Build

Despite Minotaur being a tank and a support, he can actually deal excruciating damage with the right set of items. That’s where the monster fury item build comes into play!

This item build starts off with the Blade of the Heptaseas. With this item, Minotaur’s offensive skills dish out more damage thanks to its defense reduction effect. The Warrior Boots complements Minotaur’s attack power with some added defense. Next, the Endless Battle, Hunter Strike, and Rose Gold Meteor all significantly boosts Minotaur’s offensive prowess while providing him cover with some physical lifesteal, movement speed improvement, and shield generation. Lastly, the Blade of Despair completes the set by being the endgame damage-boosting weapon.

The monster fury item build not only unlocks Minotaur’s damage-dealing potential, but also takes advantage of his tank and support abilities in order to enhance his overall effectiveness in physical combat.

Minoan God Item Build

Just like a god, Minotaur bestows divine support and protection upon his allies with the minoan god item build in tow.

This item build focuses on reducing the cooldown of Minotaur’s skills for supporting and debuffing. That is the reason for the existence of the Thunder Belt, Oracle, and Courage Bulwark in this set. Not only do these items provide Minotaur with a staggering 30% cooldown reduction, they also improve his overall survivability and supportiveness.

The Cursed Helmet ensures that Minotaur dishes out sustained minor damage while he supports his team. On the other hand, the Rapid Boots allows him to move around the battlefield quickly and give whenever there are low-health enemy heroes present.

For the last item, the Sky Guardian Helmet significantly improves Minotaur’s survivability so that he can maintain his role as a tanky support without ever needing to die unnecessarily or retreat to the base for HP regeneration.

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

Guardian Beast Item Build

Although Minotaur is arguably less tanky than other tank heroes, the guardian beast item build sees to it that he can hold his own as a tank in battle.

This item build concentrates on raising Minotaur’s defense, survivability, and tankiness. All of the items present here either adds physical defense or magical defense. There’s also a fine blend of debuffing effects and damaging effects in this build.

As a tank, it’s important that Minotaur can last as long as he can on the battlefield. With the effects of the Cursed Helmet and the Blade Armor, he can deal consistent damage against enemies that dare attack him. Furthermore, the Antique Cuirass and the Dominance Ice takes care of disempowering the enemies by reducing their attack power and mobility.

As a final touch, the Immortality guarantees that Minotaur remains to be a tanky threat temporarily for the second time following his resurrection after death. Either that or he retreats to recoup and regenerate before making a ferocious comeback.

Wizard Boots - When I’m using a Mino I like him better as a tank but at early game he’s more like a fighter so I use my skills to damage enemies as much as possible and let my teammates finish them. Getting some extra cash in the end.

Athena’s Shield - As a tank main, I use this one in every tank that I use. It has the highest magic resis from all the items and gives a shield at the same time.

Antique Cuirass - Marksmen or Markswomen aren’t really that painful in early game so I put my focus on assasins. Since their strengths come from their skills, damage reduction is what I really need by that time.

Courage Bulwark - Not much explaining in this one. One flicker, One set, One courage bulwark=TOTAL ANNIHILATION!

Oracle - Extra heal from my second skill. Not just for me but for my teammates as well. Remember! He’s also a support and he’s the only tank that can heal teammates so make good use of it!

Blade Armor - Marksmen and Markswomen are strong at this point which is good! You fill up rage while you suck-up their health.
