The new hero in Mobile Legends Argus definitely packs a punch. While he is only available in the advanced server right now, here are some of the details you may wish to know about the new fighter in Mobile Legends Argus.
Argus is an insane fighter right now in the advanced server. He will definitely be nerfed prior to his release in the actual server. Similar to most fighters out there, Argus is a melee hero and deals physical damage.
Argus has 3 active skills and 1 passive ability like most heroes. Unlike most fighters out there, Argus has no mana consumption and taking damage or dealing damage charges his rage meter (refer below to Warmonger’s passive ability)
Argus costs 32000 battle points or 599 diamonds.
Choosing the correct Emblem plays an important role in ranked matches. Be sure to select the correct Emblem before starting the game.
Taking or dealing damage will charge the demonic blade (blade will charge faster, the lower Argus’s health is), when fully charged Argus’s next basic attack will be two quick basic attacks, will deal more damage the lower Argus’s health is.
Eternal Evil (Ultimate)
Transform into a fallen angel and gains 6 seconds of immunity from death, 30% of damage taken during spell duration will be converted into Argus’s health pool.
Cool down: 44 seconds
After a short period of charging, Argus will strike the enemy with his demonic blade, dealing X physical damage, causing a bleed effect for 5 seconds, enemies under bleed effect will leave a blood trail that Argus can follow for increased movement speed.
Cool down: 8 seconds
Sends a demonic hand at the target direction, the victim will take X points of damage and be pulled towards Argus. For a short period, a charge attack maybe activated, dealing X amount of physical damage. If there are no target heroes, Argus will be pulled towards direction of release.
Cool down: 8.4 seconds

Item Build #6 Malefic Roar/Deadly Blade/Immortality
Situational based. Malefic Roar gives more physical damage and physical penetration. Deadly blade is a counter for heal, which is useful if your opponent has an Estes. Immortality helps when you just need that resurrection if you happened to be targeted.
In the build above, Scarlet Phantom is the first item to purchase as Argus has relatively slow attack speed in the beginning. Having an increase of 40% attack speed definitely helps Argus to farm in early game. Moreover, Argus’s passive ability and ultimate requires him to be on low health points to deal higher damage. For 32000 battle points, I am definitely getting Argus when Mobile Legends decides to release him. While it is not known whether Mobile Legends Argus will be nerfed in future, he is an insane fighter right now.
