How to play Zilong

Zilong is a fighter with high mobility and damage. He excels in split-pushing and is effective in ganking due to his mobility and skills. Use Zilong for the EXP lane and Jungle.


Early game (level 1-7): Zilong is one of the best early-game heroes in Mobile Legends, often used to gank enemy heroes.

Mid game (level 8-12): His split-pushing abilities are particularly strong in the mid-game.

Late game (level 13+): Zilong’s effectiveness drops off significantly in the late game. Avoid team fights whenever possible, as he will likely be targeted and eliminated quickly.

Zilong Skills

Dragon Flurry (Passive):

  • Buff, Heal.

Spear Flip (Skill 1):

  • CC, Damage.

Spear Strike (Skill 2):

  • Blink, Debuff.

Supreme Warrior (Skill 3):

  • Speed Up, Buff.

Zilong’s subsequent basic attack triggers Dragon Flurry, hitting the target three times and healing himself with each hit. His skills provide a mix of crowd control, damage, and buffs.

Skill Order: Skill 2 -> Skill 3 -> Skill 1.
