Mobile Legends : Grock Item, Skill Build and Strategy Guide

Grock Item Build

Grock Item Build

Brief Introduction

Once again, Mobile Legends has released a new hero. Grock is a new tank hero with unique play style and I was thrilled to play the new hero. With the ability to create obstacles or ‘walls’, Grock may remind you of Earthshaker in DotA 2. Nevertheless, Grock like his name mention, is a sturdy tank hero that you should consider adding into your tank collection.

With Power of Nature, Grock is able to slow down targets and deal damage according to his charge time – the longer you charge, the higher damage you will deal. Guardian’s Barrier is the trademark of Grock, he fires a shockwave to target and creates a stone wall to serve as an obstacle for 5 seconds. His ultimate, Wild Charge allows Grock to charge forward and deals damage to opponents within the path. The skill does additional damage when Grock hits a wall or turret. For his passive, Grock’s physical, magical defence and movement speed increases when he is near a wall or turret

Interesting Fact – Grock is currently the only hero capable of creating obstacles in Mobile Legends at the moment.

Again, my builds for tank are always separated into 3 different categories, Physical Defence, Magic Resistance and Norm (Normal). These are situational builds catered for draft matches where you select the most appropriate category based on your opponent’s hero selection.

Skill Build

Power of Nature

Core harassment skill for Grock. Deals a slight damage and slows enemy within surrounding range.

Guardian’s Barrier

Trademark of Grock, he fires a shockwave to target and creates a stone wall to serve as an obstacle for 5 seconds. Excellent skill to cage enemy targets.

Wild Charge

Grock charges forward and deals damage to opponents within the path. The skill does additional damage when Grock hits a wall or turret.

Ancestral Gift (Passive)

Grock’s physical, magical defence and movement speed increases when he is near a wall or turret

Conclusion

Unlike most tanks, Grock doesn’t really have any form of disabilities in his skills. Although he might be a fun hero to play with, Grock is priced at 32000 battle points which you might want to consider before purchasing.
