How To Play Odette In Mobile Legends
Last Updated: February 1, 2022
Odette is an easy to pick up mage that can make her presence felt all throughout the game. Her strong sustained damage coupled with her AoE burst makes her a very popular pick across all ranks. Here’s everything you need to know to get you started playing the Swan Princess.
If you’re looking for a mage with tons of wide hitting spells, excellent poke, and incredible team fight presence, then Odette just might be the perfect hero for you. This hero features a lot of characteristics that make it stand out from the other mages. Although she is an easy target early on, having a few items under her belt makes her exponentially stronger. In the early game, Odette is better off roaming to other lanes with her teammates to get kills and secure leads. In the late game, she becomes considerably powerful to the point that it can feel like she’s unstoppable. Her whole kit allows her to always deal damage to more than one target. To top it all off, she has an immobilize on her second skill that can stop enemies in their tracks for 2 seconds. Odette is definitely a strong hero especially in the lower ranks. Despite everything good about her, she has a few weaknesses. Being a high damage hero, she is often the priority target of the enemy team. She has no mobility spell so she can be very vulnerable when you have no one on your team to peel for you. That being said, Odette can still be a powerful carry under the right hands.
Odette’s kit is all about dealing damage. Most of her skills have pretty decent range and you can use it to poke enemies from afar. However, her ultimate requires her to be in the middle of the fight to be effective. It can be a bit confusing so you have to pick your spots carefully.
Passive – Lakeshore Ambience
After each skill cast, Odette’s next Basic Attack or skill will cast a sound wave that rebounds between her and enemy units, dealing 144-200 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage.
Odette’s passive is pretty useful for poking enemies. It allows her to deal extra damage on her basic attacks right after using an ability. It’s the main reason why Odette has such good wave clear.
First Skill – Avian Authority
Odette concentrates energy to summon a swan to attack enemies, dealing 300-550 (+150% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and slowing them by 30%. Lasts 2 seconds.
Avian Authority is Odette’s primary damaging ability. You’ll be spamming this whenever you can since it deals good damage and has a pretty long range. During fights, you’ll lead with this ability to whittle down the health of your enemies.
Second Skill – Blue Nova
Odette releases a set of magic energy balls forward, dealing 250-400 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the enemy hit and immobilizing them for 1.5 seconds. Another energy ball will then spawn and attack a nearby enemy (prioritizes enemy heroes), dealing 250-400 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and immobilizing them for 1.5 seconds.
This ability is Odette’s only form of crowd control. Since she is a squishy hero, having a skill that can stop assassins or fighters from getting too close to her is a huge help. This ability also fires at a unique angle so you can try creative ways to land it.
Ultimate – Swan Song
Odette leaps in a designated direction, gains 1400-1800 (+150% Total Magic Power) shield, and begins gathering energy, dealing 240-320 (+90% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies within the area every 0.5 second for 5 seconds.
Odette slows nearby enemies by 90% (decays over 2 seconds) upong casting the skill. The rebounding speed and count of Lakeshore Ambience’s sound wave in the area are also enhanced when the skill is active.
This skill requires constant channeling and will be interrupted if Odette is controlled or performs other actions.
Swan Song is Odette’s signature ability. It has a large area of effect which makes it perfect for teamfights. You can also catch your enemies off guard when you combine this ability with Flicker. It’s a very good ability overall. One that needs precise execution to be effective. The only thing wrong with this ability is that you have to stay still without getting interrupted to get the full effect.
When it comes to builds on Odette, the only thing you should focus on is to stack as much Magic Damage as possible. Items that add a slow to your abilities like Ice Queen Wand are great on Odette. Items that can also increase her survivability are great too like Clock of Destiny, Concentrated Energy, and Immortality. But out of all these choices, there are two that stand out. These two are Odette’s core items and need to be incorporated in all of her builds. These items are Holy Crystal and Divine Glaive.
- Holy Crystal
+100 Magic Power
Unique Passive – Mystery: Increases Magic Power by 21%~35% (Scales with level).
- Divine Glaive
+65 Magic Power
Unique Passive: +35% Magic PEN
Unique Passive – Spellbreaker: Each point of the enemy’s Magic Defense increases Magic Penetration by 0.1% when dealing damage to it, capped at 20%.
Both these items increase Odette’s raw Magic Power. Having them both in your inventory drastically increases her effectiveness and allows her to do what she does best: shred enemy heroes.
- For emblems, always take the Mage set with Impure Rage as your talent. Impure Rage allows your skills to deal extra magic damage equal to 4% of the target’s current HP and restores 3% of your Mana.
- For your battle spell, always take Flicker. Since Odette doesn’t have any form of mobility, having Flicker ensures that she can escape sticky situations when cornered by the enemy. It also adds a layer of surprise when used to initiate fights in conjunction with her ultimate.
- Odette can be countered by heroes with a lot of crowd control. Odette is at her best when she’s using her ultimate in team fights. This ultimate can be interrupted by hard crowd control. As such, heroes like Franco, Zilong, Guinevere, and Tigreal can severely counter Odette and limit her effectiveness.
