How To Play Terizla In Mobile Legends

Terizla is one of the tankiest fighters in Mobile Legends. His strong mix of durability, lockdown crowd control, and burst damage makes him a very strong hero in the current meta. Here’s everything you need to know to get you started playing the Executioner.



Despite being listed as a fighter, Terizla looks and feels more like a tank. He is a very slow moving hero that can dish out tons of damage and crowd control. Thanks to his abilities, Terizla is innately durable which makes him a decent frontline for your team. However, since he lacks mobility, he might be better off being a secondary initiator. His skills all have a very wide area of effect which means he is great for clearing waves, pushing lanes, and dealing damage plus crowd control during team fights. The best part about Terizla is that he can guarantee that enemies won’t be able to escape thanks to his ultimate.

Terizla is a great hero to use but his effectiveness can be a little reliant on team composition. His most glaring weakness is his lack of mobility and in a fast paced game like Mobile Legends, that can be a death sentence. This also makes him unfit to roam to other lanes. So when playing as Terizla, you have to keep these limitations in mind and learn to play around them. You have to pick your spots carefully and must be patient when to start a fight. Overall, Terizla is a great and rewarding hero to use. His strong burst damage coupled with his penchant for locking down enemies can make him a very valuable pick that can help carry games under the right hands.


Terizla’s entire kit is geared towards keeping enemies in front of him. His crowd control and damaging abilities all have fairly short range so you need to be aware of when to use your abilities. The perfect timing can often change the tides of the game.

Passive – Body of Smith

Every 2% of Terizla’s HP lost will be converted to 1% Damage Reduction (up to 35%).

Terizla’s Attack Speed can not be increased. Every 1% extra Attack Speed he’s supposed to receive will be converted into 1 Physical Attack.

The principle of Terizla’s passive is simple; the less health he has, the more damage reduction he gets. He is also unable to gain attack speed from items which instead would be converted into Physical Attack. Body of Smith increases Terizla’s durability by a lot and can be the deciding factor whenever an enemy tries to 1v1 with him. This also makes him a very effective frontline who can easily draw the enemy heroes’ attacks. 

First Skill – Revenge Strike

Terizla cracks the ground with his hammer and the fissure will spread out, dealing 300-450 (+80% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage. After the fissure hits the first target, it will drill into the target and slow them by 30%. At the same time, Terizla’s Movement Speed will be increased by 25% for 3 seconds. The fissure on target will then explode, dealing 300-450 (+80% Extra Physical Attack) plus 20% of the enemy’s lost HP Physical Damage.

Revenge Strike is Terizla’s secondary damaging ability. This ability deals damage in a line which can be useful for clearing waves and trading with your opponent. It also ‘steals’ a bit of movement speed of your target which can offset Terizla’s lack of mobility.

Second Skill – Execution Strike

Terizla waves his hammer in a fan-shaped area ahead. This skill can be cast up to 3 times. The first two attacks deal 180 (+150% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage each, while the third deals 225-450 (+300% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage. Enemies hit will also be slowed by 15% for 1.5 seconds (the slow effect can stack).

Deals only 60%-100% damage to minions.

Execution Strike is the source of burst damage in Terizla’s kit. It deals massive damage in a wide area as well as inflicting crowd control. Try to land all three parts of this ability when trading with an enemy or during a team fight.

Ultimate – Penalty Zone

Terizla jumps to the designated area to smash down, causing 300-500 (+100% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage and slowing enemies by 45%-50%. Meanwhile, he summons Scaffold, which will reach out a hook to the enemies and pull the target several times, causing 150-250 (+30% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage each time.

Penalty Zone is Terizla’s lockdown crowd control ability. This ensures that enemies would be locked in place and prevent them from getting too far. It deals massive damage as well so be sure to use this wisely and try to contain as much enemies within its radius as possible. 


When it comes to items, your focus should primarily be increasing Terizla’s damage and his durability. There are plenty of items out there that can give you a bit of both. Generally, you’d want to stick with one or two attack equipment and save the rest of your item slots for defensive equipment. The defensive equipment you purchase should depend on the enemy team’s lineup. If they have more Physical Attack heroes then go for Physical Defense items. If they have more Magic Power heroes, go with Magic Defense items. That being said, there are two essential items that you must always have on Terizla regardless of your build path. These core items are War Axe and Bloodlust Axe

  • Bloodlust Axe

+70 Physical ATK

+10% CD Reduction

+20% Spell Vamp

  • War Axe

+35 Physical ATK
+550 HP
+10% CD Reduction

Unique Passive – Fighting Spirit: Dealing damage to enemies grants 9 Physical Attack and 3 Physical Penetration per second for 3s, to a max of 8 stacks (Marksmen/Mages/Supports only receive 33% of these stacked effects); also grants 15% Movement Speed at full stacks.

These items are perfect for Terizla as it gives him a bit of everything that he needs. They give Physical Attack, HP, CD Reduction and most of all, sustain and increased damage. 

Useful Tips

  1. For your emblems, go with the Fighter set and take either Festival of Blood or Disabling Strike as your talent. Festival of Blood gives you bonus spell vamp which will increase your overall sustain. Disabling Strike, on the other hand, will increase your damage whenever you hit enemies with a slow which is pretty useful since all of Terizla’s abilities will inflict a slow. Whatever you choose boils down to your playstyle. If you’re going for a safe and tanky playstyle, go with Festival of Blood. If you plan on being aggressive and would like to trade with your opponents any chance you get, go with Disabling Strike.
  2. For your battle spell, take either Sprint or Flicker. Both of these spells are used to mask Terizla’s lack of mobility. Sprint allows you to move faster while Flicker lets you blink or teleport a short distance.
  3. Since Terizla is immobile, heroes with a lot of blinks or dashes that can avoid his crowd control can easily counter him. Heroes like Granger, Wanwan, Natalya, Harith, and Karrie are strong counters against Terizla.
