After multiple nerfs, Mobile Legends Alpha is another fallen hero in the game. With extended cool down duration of his ultimate and coupled with his animation delays, Alpha is indeed rarely played in higher tier matches.
Alpha belongs to the fighter category in Mobile Legends. His ultimate Spear of Alpha does offer an ability effect of stunning enemy when it hits.
However, Spear of Alpha does comes with a little animation delay and a long 31 seconds cool down. Alpha’s Force Swing is perhaps the only positive in his ability line up. With a 8.2 seconds cool down life stealing skill, Alpha can stay in lane farming without getting Haas Claw.
Interesting Fact – Using any of Alpha’s skill will summon Beta to attack and mark the enemy, dealing true damage after 2 marks.
Mobile Legends Alpha costs 32000 Battle Points or 599 Diamonds

Alpha Item Build #6 Blade of Despair/Deadly Blade/Immortality
Situational based. I like to format my gear setting in this manner so that I can switch accordingly. Blade of Despair gives more physical damage and a boost in attack speed. Deadly blade is a counter for heal, which is useful if your opponent has an Estes. Immortality revives you with 15% of health points + shield after death.
Alpha has great farming ability and his life steal effect shouldn’t be neglected. Generally Alpha players should maximise his area of effect ability by focusing on farming up, making use of gold advantage to deal insane amount of damage.
Spear of Alpha -> Force Swing -> Rotary Impact
Mobile Legends Alpha may not be the best team player in the game, but he is definitely worth a try for experience. For 32000 battle points, there maybe better heroes out there for your consideration.
