Try out these item builds for Zilong, and emerge victorious in "Mobile Legends"!

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

As the Son of the Dragon, Zilong needs to be equipped with the proper items so he can triumphantly pummel all opposition to the ground. Fortunately, this guide provides item build ideas for you to use so you can lead him to victory.

Item Build Ideas for Zilong

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

  1. Dragon Fury
  2. Fierce Striker
  3. Spear Master

1. Dragon Fury

The Dragon Fury build emphasizes attack speed as Zilong’s main source of strength. By increasing the speed of his basic attack to the highest possible degree, Zilong can fully harness the power of his Dragon Flurry passive skill.

Remember that each hit coming from Zilong reduces the cooldown rate of Dragon Flurry by 0.5 second. With more attack speed comes more Dragon Flurry occurrences. And with more Dragon Flurry occurrences come more damage!

Notable Items

It is important to mention that including the Golden Staff in this build also helps increase the occurrence rate of Dragon Flurry. After all, its unique passive triggers the effect of every third basic attack three times.

As for the Wind of Nature, not only does it increase attack power and attack speed, it also offers situational survivability for Zilong with its Wind Chant unique active.

Overall, this build is about speed! With the items present here and Zilong’s Dragon Flurry and Supreme Warrior skills working hand-in-hand in perfect resonance, none shall escape his dragon fury!

  • Unique Passive (Despair): Raises the hero’s physical attack damage by 30% for 2 seconds after attacking enemies that have less than 50% HP.

2. Fierce Striker

Rather than attack speed, the focus of the Fierce Striker build is offensive power!

On his own, Zilong is already quite an agile and speedy hero. Whenever he activates his Supreme Warrior ultimate skill, he become even faster. That is why this build takes advantage of that speed by stockpiling a lot of attack power to balance everything out.

Notable Items

Speedy attacks become even more effective when paired with devastating physical power. In this build, Berserker’s Fury and Scarlet Phantom do the job of delivering critical attacks while Malefic Roar and Blade of Despair further increase attack power to the highest possible limit.

As for survivability, Haas’s Claw provides a decent lifesteal effect while the Warrior Boots add some much-needed defense.

If pure offensive power is what you want, then this build is for you! Ultimately, this build ensures that each and every attack coming from Zilong packs a punch no matter what speed they come.

Item Stats and Bonuses

1. Haas’s Claw

  • +70 Physical Attack
  • +20% Lifesteal (Unique)

3. Spear Master

This build paints Zilong in a lustrous light befitting the title of “Spear Master!”

In every aspect, this build is well-rounded and effective. It provides survivability from the get-go. As such, Zilong can roam around the battlefield freely, always ready to jungle or initiate an attack on the enemy heroes and turrets.

Notable Items

It is important to make jungling a priority with this build. By doing so, Zilong can farm experience and gold much faster and strengthen up proportionally. This is the reason why the Beast Killer is the first core item of this build.

While the Beast Killer already provides additional defensive power, the Warrior Boots further augments that. On the other hand, the Demon Hunter Sword increases survivability even more by adding some lifesteal with the bonus inclusion of offensive power and attack speed. As for the rest of the core items, they are mostly tailored to provide significant amounts of attack speed and some decent attack power.

Once you complete this set, you can swap Beast Killer for a Blade of Despair for more damage. If you prefer to play defensive, you can also purchase a Rose Gold Meteor instead of a Malefic Roar.

Beyond everything, the best way to use this build is to snag kills and deliver ruination as much as you can—be it the enemy heroes or upon the enemy turrets! This build is rather effective when it comes to turret-stealing so always remember to try to bring down the enemy turrets whenever the opportunity arises. Don’t focus on team clashes that much. Instead, focus on bringing down turrets until you wipe out the whole enemy base from the map!

Item Stats and Bonuses

  • +20 Armor
  • +20 Magic Resistance
  • +30% Damage to Monsters (Unique)

  • Unique Passive (Gorge): Increases physical and magic defense by 3 points every time a jungle monster is killed. This effect can stack up to 10 times. Also, the “Retribution” battle spell becomes applicable to enemy heroes by having the effect of reducing their Movement Speed by 70%, which gradually decays within 3 seconds. Using “Retribution” also temporarily grants your hero a shield that’s based on the hero’s total HP.

Full Potential build

1. Warrior's boots - Essential for almost every Fighters and Assassins Hero.

2. Demon Hunter Sword - Every hits from Zilong's passive counts as a basic attack, therefore, this weapon allows him to utilize his passive as a Reaping(Lowering an enemy's health really quickly) ability. Best bought after buying Warrior's boots and any second-tier Jungling item

3. Scarlet Phantom - Gives critical chance and attack speed, further increase in attack speed through critical hits. Combining this with Demon Hunter Sword and Zilong's Ultimate and you get a Star Platinum reference.

4. Berserker's Fury - Gives more critical chance and increases critical damage.

5. Haas' Claw - Provides lifesteal in order to increase survivability.

6. Blade of Despair - The final piece for every heroes that use physical attacks.
