Shadow Commander Austus in Mobile Legends Bang Bang: All you need to know
The new character seems to be a cross between Kaja and Aamon, with Kaja's appearance and Aamon's skills. Take a detailed look at his various skills below.
His 1st Skill, "Power of Shadows" when active, will allow him to gain one shard with every win. Once players collect six shards, they can ignite the Shard Totem, which will grant them anywhere between 6-14 gold. Wins over creep rounds will also be counted.
This skill grants players a shard every time a two-star hero is acquired. Once players have six shards collected they can use the shard totem to get Mirror Devices. Every time a hero is upgraded to Lv. 2 will also grant players a shard. This skill has to be manually activated.
This is by far the best skill this commander will have. Here, a shard is granted for every time an ally is killed and can ignite the Totem after every win. The number of shards collected will determine the scale of the reward.
For example; a silver totem will grant players a random five-gold hero, a gold totem, a random five-gold two-star hero and so on and so forth.
Players are advised to store their shards according to the rewards they are seeking. If the shards collected in a round are less than 10 then no reward can be claimed. The shards collected for a round the player lost will be stored until they win a round, and cumulated later.
Magic Chess is an eight-player strategy game mode where players compete against each other or randoms from scratch and buy and upgrade heroes as they go in every match. Shadow Commander Austus is the 20th in a line of support characters which players can use to get additional buffs during the match.
