The upcoming Marksman hero Ixia will be released in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) in July 2023. The new hero is an integral part of the expansive Project NEXT update, which is brimming with enthralling new content certain to captivate players. Notably, this update introduces the revamped Emblem System in Mobile Legends, giving players thrilling opportunities for strategic improvement. Ixia, the new Marksman hero, has a high damage output and mobility, which could make her viable in the current meta. In addition, the upcoming marksman hero’s debut week will feature a special discount on her base skin, allowing players to get her in style.

Marksman Hero Ixia – Release date

The new Mobile Legends marksman hero Ixia will be added to the game on July 8, 2023. She is categorized as a burst-type marksman with high mobility when there are nearby enemies.

As a hero who obtains bonus movement speed outside of combat, Ixia is ideal for roaming the map or splitting lanes when enemies are occupied in other lanes.

Mobile Legends Ixia Abilities

Ixia has four abilities, one of which is passive and three of which are active.

Passive – Arc Siphon (Damage, Regeneration)

This ability is the key to her vitality regeneration, which makes her a durable warrior. Whenever Ixia successfully attacks with her fundamental ability set, she adds a stack of Arc Charge to her target.

When it reaches 2 stacks and she uses her basic attack again, it will consume those stacks and transform into an Arc Siphon, dealing (100% Total Physical Attack) + 20000% Physical Lifesteal + 40 (+20* Hero Level) physical damage and reducing the target’s movement speed by 40% for 1.5 seconds. Remember that Arc Siphon only works against foes within your basic attack range.

Skill 1 – Dual Arc (Burst)
CD – 8/7.6/7.2/6.8/6.4/6
Mana Cost – 40/45/50/55/60/65

Ixia discharges two Arclight rounds in the specified direction at enemies within a rectangular area, dealing 150 (+80% Total Physical Attack) (+8000% Physical Lifesteal) /180/210/240/270/300 (+80% Total Physical Attack) (+8000% Physical Lifesteal) Physical Damage. In this state, Ixia’s movement speed is increased by 40% for the next 3 seconds, and adversaries struck by both rounds of Ixia will take double damage.

Skill 2 – Arc Helix (Crowd Control)
CD – 12/11.6/11.2/10.8/10.4/10
Mana Cost – 75/80/85/90/95/100

Upon casting, Ixia launches an energy beam in a cylindrical-shaped area, pulling all the enemies to the center after a brief delay while inflicting 200 (+60% Total Physical Attack) (+120000% Physical Lifesteal) /200/220/240/260/280/300 amount of physical damage.

Ultimate – Arclight Barrage (Area of Effect)
CD – 38/35/32
Mana Cost – 75/90/105
This final skill has two phases. One is active, and another is passive.

Passive: Whenever she is not engaged in combat, her mobility speed will increase by up to 30% (maximum). This effect expires promptly whenever she engages in combat.
Active: Upon casting, she will divide her cannons into six smaller pieces, forming a triangular area. In this condition, Ixia’s fundamental attacks deal additional damage to the fan-shaped area. Ixia’s fundamental attacks can deal damage to six foes, and her activated Arc Syphon can deal up to 80/160/340 additional damage to foes. This is a crucial and beneficial ability for her in team battles. Players can utilize it strategically to inflict maximum damage.

Mobile Legends Ixia Skill Analysis

This hero is very powerful in the early to late phases. If players know how to use it, they can outnumber any enemies with it, and it’s unique passive will help to restore the HP in any situation. If one feels that they are being ganked by enemies, they simply should not engage.

Mobile Legends Ixia gameplay

Instead of fighting, one must run to restore their mana and health, because its ultimate’s passive will provide you with extra movement speed, which will work like a rapid boot for free. Imply gathering stacks first with your basic attack, then gather them all with your skill 2, and then skill 1 or open skill 3 in the Early Game:

Basic Attack *2+ Skill 2+ Skill 1

Or else open skill one, then spam skill 2 and skill 1 with your basic attack. You can perform the following skills on the battlefield with Ixia in Late Game:

Skill 2+ Skill 1+ Ultimate+ Basic Attack


Wrapping it up

This marksman will be in meta soon after its release. The release date is not yet fixed, but we could see her on the battlefield in the middle or last week of June (in the original game). If one has access to the Advanced server, we will definitely recommend the player master it. Once the hero releases in the Original Server, it will give players an upper hand in rank pushing. Try to do a combo with Yve and Gatotkaca. It will mitigate the chance of escape for enemies. Once they are caught, respawn will be their only option.

The final bonus tip is to try the crit build on her, instead of the former Trinity or speed build. After the release on the original server, we will clarify the reason behind this. Ixia can be considered a great counter for both Beatrix and Revamped Layla.
