If you’re the type of player who loves picking off enemy carries but have yet to master assassin heroes, Yin, the newest fighter hero in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, is perfect for you.

Equipped with only his fists and rings around his forearms that act as weapons, the Martial Genius possesses the unique ability to switch between his original form to Lieh, an evil deity hellbent on destroying the world.

Learn about the newest fighter hero, Yin, in this guide, including recommended emblems, battle spells, and best builds for the hero.

Yin deals 125% increased damage when there are no allied heroes within 4 yards.

Yin dashes foward leaving a Golden Ring behind while dealing physical damage to enemies along the way.After a 1 second delay, the Golden Ring will catch up with Yin, dealing physical damage to enemies it passes through and stunning them for 1 second.

Lieh: Strikes a flying kick forward, leaving a Golden Ring behind while dealing physical famage to enemies along the way. After a 1 second delay, the Golden Ring will catch up with Lieh, dealing physical damage to enemies it passes through and stunning them for 1 second.

Yin pulls a designated enemy hero into his domain with him for up to 8 seconds and turns into Lieh.

To maximize his passive’s increased damage when he is alone, Retribution is the best battle spell as you’ll have a much faster time clearing jungle creeps compared to laning with someone in the gold lane or mid lane.

If your team already has a jungler, don’t take Retribution when laning, and instead use Execution. This spell can help you secure kills, and is best used during My Turn’s duration. The EXP lane is the second best option for Yin since he doesn’t have any long-range skills that can counter any marksman heroes in the gold lane.

Choosing what emblem to use on Yin depends on your skill level with the hero. Beginners can go for Unbending Will for the extra damage, especially against scaling heroes.

Choosing High and Dry is viable if you have experience playing with the Martial Genius, as its effect synergizes well with Leave It To Me. However, High and Dry forces you to maintain a certain distance with your allies.

Whatever you pick, always go for physical damage or penetration subtalents. The extra offensive stats helps a lot with his killing potential, especially in the early game.

As a fighter hero, building him offensively is the best way to go. Based on what the pros build, prioritizing physical damage and cooldown reduction is a must in the early to mid game. War Axe and Hunter Strike are his core items, followed by either Blade of the Heptaseas or Blade of Despair.

After building your go-to offensive items, you can either buy defensive items if the game is close, or go for more offensive items if your team is ahead. A glass cannon build is far greater compared to building him hybrid.

A good combo in a 1v1 situation would be to get close with Charged Punch and Instant Blast. Once the target is stunned, immediately use My Turn, Lieh’s Instant Blast, then Frenzy Strike for the finishing blow.

This combo does the job most of the time, provided you perfectly land the stun on Instant Blast.

Always prioritize enemy carries, such as their marksman or jungler, as it’s easier to burst them down compared to using your ultimate on the enemy tank or fighter.

Since Yin doesn’t use any mana when casting abilities, feel free to last hit enemy creeps and harass enemy heroes with Charged Punch. If the enemy fights back or if the enemy jungler is in your tail, use Charged Punch again for the movement speed boost and Instant Blast if the enemy flickers or use a mobility skill towards you.
