Waddup, humans? Kurumi here! And welcome to the Mobile Legends Boot Camp! In this video, we are going to talk about the fighter, Lapu-Lapu. Lapu-Lapu has a good set of area-of-effect, dash, and disabling skills. Our Great Chief, Lapu-Lapu, is a fighter hero. I consider Lapu-Lapu as a great sustaining fighter, since his skills are all meant for area-of-effect damage to multiple enemies. Not only that, his passive skill grants him a shield that can really help him survive team fights. As an trivia, did you know that Lapu-Lapu is a national hero from the Philippines? Now, let me share some tips and tricks on how to use Lapu-Lapu based on my experience. I will also teach you some combos and techniques on the latter part of this boot camp. But before that, let me explain his skills one by one for further understanding.
Lapu-Lapu’s passive, Hero’s Faith, grants a shield and a boosted basic attack to Lapu-Lapu. There are 5 bars under Lapu-Lapu’s health bar. This contains the Bravery Blessing charges he gets from hitting an enemy hero, or jungle monsters with his skills. When he gains 5 stacks, his next basic attack will deal extra 250% damage. He also gains a shield when he deals the next basic attack upon having 5 charges. The shield absorbs certain points of damage, which will depend on his level. Take note that he also gains charges from hitting the turtle and the lord with skills. Lapu-Lapu’s first skill, Justice Blade, lets Lapu-Lapu hurl his two blades like a boomerang forward. Each blade deals a certain amount of Physical Damage to the enemies in the path. It also deals damage to enemies on it return path. Take note that enemies along the way could only be hit by one blade along the path. So it’s better to hit enemies in between the two blades, so they can feel the wrath of both blades.
Also, multiple hits on the same target will still only grant 1 charge of Bravery Blessing. While on Heavy Sword state, his ultimate skill, this skill is enhanced. Casting this skill towards a direction will now launch a giant flying wheel blades. Enemies hit along the path will receive certain amount of Physical Damage. They will also have their movement speed reduced. Lapu-Lapu’s second skill, Brave Stance, lets Lapu-Lapu charge with his twin blades towards a specified direction. Enemies hit along the path will receive a certain amount of Physical Damage. If he hits an enemy hero, his Movement Speed will be increased. This lasts for a few seconds. This skill can also let Lapu-Lapu pass through walls, which is good for either chasing enemies or escaping death. While on Heavy Sword state, his ultimate skill, this skill is enhanced.
Casting this skill will let Lapu-Lapu charge with his heavy blade towards the specified direction. Enemies hit along the way will receive certain amount of Physical Damage. Lapu-Lapu’s ultimate skill, Chieftain’s Rage, lets Lapu-Lapu combine his twin blades into one heavy sword. Upon casting, Lapu-Lapu slashes the specified direction with his heavy sword. Enemies hit will receive Physical Damage and will be stunned for a few moments.
He now gains additional Physical and Magic Defense within 15 seconds. The Defense points granted depends on the level of this skill. While having the Heavy Sword, his 1st, 2nd, and ultimate skill is now enhanced. This also lasts for 15 seconds. Take note that upon entering the Heavy Sword state, the enhanced set of skills are usable right away. While on Heavy Sword state, Lapu-Lapu’s basic attack damage is increased by a certain percentage. Upon using this skill, Lapu-Lapu whirls his Heavy Sword, dealing a certain amount of Physical Damage to enemies around him. There are so many items that you can buy for Lapu-Lapu. You can focus on items that grants Physical Damage, items that gives you health points, and items that increases your durability. For me, I choose to buy items that grants spell vamp, movement speed, health points, and physical damage to Lapu-Lapu.
We are torn on two builds which depends on your playing style. You can choose my build if you intend to be more on the Physical Damage side. On the other hand, you can choose Roddick’s build if you want to be more durable. As for starting item, you can consider buying Bloodlust Axe. This item grants Physical Attack and Cool Down reduction. Its unique passive grants 20% spell vamp. Spell vamp regenerates health points from damage dealt by skills. Since all of Lapu-Lapu’s active skills deal area-of-effect damage, then you can sustain inside team fights while spamming all your skills. Now, you can focus on buying his shoes. For his kicks, you can consider either Magic Shoes or Warrior Boots. Consider Magic Shoes if you want to cast your skills again as soon as possible.
This item grants additional Movement Speed and Cool Down reduction. The cool down reduction can help you cast more of your skills. On the other hand, consider Warrior Boots if you want to be more durable. This item grants additional Physical Defense and movement speed. Its unique passive grants additional Physical Defense up to 25 points, depending on the basic attack received. This passive lasts for a few seconds. Buying attack items such as Blade of Despair, will greatly increase your damage output.
This item grants additional physical attack and movement speed. Its unique passive will give you additional physical attack, when the target?s health is below a certain percentage. The movement speed bonus can also help you chase enemies, or escape death. Buying attack items such as Endless Battle, can boost your damage effectively. This item gives you additional physical attack, health, mana regen, lifesteal, movement speed, and cooldown reduction.
Do take note that Lapu-Lapu has no mana. Still, this is considered a good item for him. Its unique passive grants you additional True Damage on your next basic attack, after using a skill. Triggering the passive of this skill also grants you additional movement speed. With the cool down reduction and its unique passive, Lapu-Lapu will be more explosive with this since he relies on his skills most of the time.
For our new favorite item, you might want to consider Hunter Strike. This item grants Physical Attack, and Cool Down Reduction. Its unique attribute grants Physical Penetration. Its unique passive improves your movement speed, when you have attacked an enemy 5 times in a row. This buff lasts for 3 seconds. This effect has a cool down of 15 seconds. This is a great alternative for the Sprint spell, since the movement speed this item grants is just as good as using Sprint.
So this will let you chase enemies easily, or escape death. Lastly, you might also want to consider Queen’s Wings. This item grants Physical Damage, Health points, and cool down reduction. Its unique passive reduces damage taken by 50%, when your health is less than 40%, and also increases your Physical Lifesteal by 30%. This lasts for 5 seconds. This effect has a 50 seconds cool down. The item build for Lapu-Lapu really depends on the enemy’s line up. So make sure to read each item’s description so you can adapt in-game. One of the best spells to be used on Lapu-Lapu is Purify. This will help you to be immune to crowd-control skills for a short period. This will let you use your skills without worrying of being disabled. You might also want to consider one of the forbidden jutsus, Execute. This grants you to deal true damage to the target. The damage is based on the target?s lost health points, and also with your level. The damage ignores shield absorption, meaning, it pierces through enemy shields. This spell will have its cool down reduced by a certain percentage, when an enemy is slain with this spell.
In my opinion, the best emblem set to be used is the Custom Fighter Emblem set. Custom Fighter Emblem could provide extra stats according to your needs as a fighter. Set Bravery to its Max level because it can give you extra Physical Damage. Higher Physical Damage means higher damage for your attacks. Setting Invasion to max level will provide you Physical Penetration. Higher Physical Penetration means higher damage on your basic attacks and skills. Get Festival of Blood to be granted 8% of Spell Vamp. Killing an enemy hero grants an extra 1% Spell Vamp. This is really helpful since your damage comes mostly from your skills.
So, it’s also best to gain some health while dealing damage to enemies. Set first skill to max level first. Prioritizing this makes the cool down lower, and the base damage higher. That means, you can cast this skill again to deal pain to enemies. Prioritize second skill less since his first skill is what you need for damage dealing. Always upgrade his ultimate skill when available for upgrading. Lapu-Lapu’s passive skill is what you really need to survive team fights. With the ability to receive a shield when he deals a basic attack when he has full charges, this will really help Lapu-Lapu sustain in team fights. The shield may be just a little, but when you are inside team fights, you need every little health and shield you can acquire. Not only it helps you sustain inside team fights, it can also help you escape death. Take a look on this scenario. I was able to survive and we even killed Martis because of my shield. Wonderful, isn’t it? Take a look on another scenario. Here, I just believed on my passive skill even if I think Selena can kill me.
But instead, I was able to steal the turtle, and we were able to kill Selena as well. Lapu-Lapu’s first skill is what you need to deal pain to lots of enemies. As mentioned earlier, each blade thrown has different damage. So make sure to aim properly so that the target will receive both of your sword’s damage. His first skill has a really long range. So, never underestimate this skill. This is one of your core skills when it comes in sustaining in team fights. Along with Bloodlust Axe, this skill will greatly grant you health points. Lapu-Lapu’s second skill is what you need to either chase enemies or escape death. In twin blade mode, hitting enemies with this skill will grant you movement speed. So, this is best granted to chase enemies. In Heavy Sword mode, you can either use this to chase enemies or escape death.
Lapu-Lapu’s ultimate skill is what you really need in team fights. With the ability to stun enemies for a few moments, this will really help your team have more time to burst their damage peacefully. On Heavy Sword mode, your skills are enhanced, and the cool down of your skills are reset. So, in Twin Blades mode, it’s really advisable to use your 1st and 2nd skill first before casting your ultimate. But it really depends on the situation. With Bloodlust Axe, your skills will really grant you lots of health from spell vamp.
This will greatly help you sustain inside the team fight, with a little risk of you dying. Just make sure that your skills aren’t on cool down when you engage. Because if your skills are on cool down and you are inside the team fight, you will just rely on your basic attacks and your chance of dying is greater. You don’t want to see yourself inside the team fight just to melt like an ice cream, do you? In terms of his combo, we usually follow a combo for Lapu-Lapu. Let’s focus first on our combo when going against 1 enemy.
First, we use our ultimate skill. This is not advisable since we really recommend using your first and second skill first. But on this situation, we need to steal the crab. Then, we use our second skill to get closer to the target. Then, we use our ultimate skill to deal burst damage. Then, we use our first skill. Since our skills are now on cool down, we use our basic attacks. Take note that your basic attacks are boosted while on Heavy Sword mode. Then, we use our second skill to keep our distance. Then, we casted our first skill since our Bravery Blessing will now have full charges. Then, we use our boosted basic attack to be granted a shield. Then, for our final blow, we have Execute to extinguish X.Borg’s flaming act. In terms of combo in team fights or chasing enemies, we usually follow a simple combo. First, we use our ultimate skill to stun them immediately. Then, we use our second skill to get near the enemy. Then, we use our ultimate skill as a final blow since this deals burst damage.
If that’s not enough, then use your first skill. And you can use Execute afterwards if the enemy is still holding on. In terms of going in team fights, we usually follow this combo. First, we use our first skill to deal some damage to the enemies. Then, we dive in using our second skill. Since the situation tells my senses that its best to stun them with my ultimate skill, then so be it. Then, I used my second skill to get near the enemy with lowest health.
Then, I used my first skill to slow the target down. Then, I use my ultimate skill as my final blow. I can still somehow escape this situation with my Purify. But sometimes, even if you give your best to the one you love, you still feel pain and keep dying inside. Additional Tip: Execute is the forbidden-jutsu. So, use it wisely to secure a kill. Remember, use it to secure a kill and not to steal a kill. There is really no difference, so whatever. Do what you like.
