Aldous Skills

Passive – Contract: Transform

Aldous’s subsequent Basic attack deals additional damage and becomes a shield, providing durability.

Skill 1 – Contract: Soul Steal

Aldous amplifies his basic attack, dealing physical damage. Destroying units grants stacks, permanently increasing the damage. Enhanced basic attacks deal significantly more damage to minions or creeps.

Skill 2 – Contract: Explosion

Aldous adopts a defensive posture, ignoring basic attacks and dealing physical damage to surrounding opponents. Cancelling the defensive stance or when it expires stuns nearby opponents.

Skill 3 – Contract: Chase Fate

Aldous gains vision of enemies for five seconds. He can dash towards an enemy hero, dealing physical damage, a percentage of the target’s maximum health, and a knockback.

In conclusion, armed with this comprehensive Aldous guide, you’re ready to conquer the battlefield in Mobile Legends. Experiment with different builds, combos, and strategies to unleash Aldous’s full potential and lead your team to victory.
