Sun, the Monkey King, is a Fighter hero in Mobile Legends known for his ability to summon clones that will fight alongside him in battle.
These dopplegangers are summoned by using his first skill and ultimate skill. Sun also has abilities that give bonus effects to his clones.
For example, his passive allows Sun and his doppelgangers to reduce the enemy’s defense by 6% on each attack. While his ulti allows his doppelgangers to recover Sun’s HP based on the damage dealt.
In addition, his clones can distract and confuse your enemies. They might even waste an important single target ulti on a clone!
Should you buy Sun?
If you like initiating teamfights and being in charge of battle, you should definitely try playing Sun.
He is also a good hero for split pushing thanks to the additional power of his clones.
Overall, Sun is a great Fighter hero and initiator and very fun to play.
Sun Item Build
Here’s our recommended item build for Sun:
This build will give Sun decent attack damage and attack speed during the early game which scales well until the late game.
Warrior Boots will help Sun more durable with the stacking bonus defense effects.
Demon Hunter Sword (DHS) and Corrosion Scythe will be your two ASPD-increasing items which makes Sun into the raging, feral ape that he is.
DHS will help you deal with tanky heroes with high amounts of HP, because it deals percentage damage. In addition, it gives you a little bit of lifesteal for sustainability. You can swap the DHS and Corrosion Scythe order depending on the situation.
Endless Battle will further enhance your offensive capability with its bonus effects and the true damage bonus. You can go for Queen’s Wings as well if you prefer more survivability.
Finally, get Brute Force Breastplate or Athena’s Shield as your defensive item, then top it all off with Blade of Despair in the late game to finish your build.
Gameplay Tips & Tricks
Here are some tips and tricks on how to use Sun more effectively:
- Stay safe during the early game. Just farm, clear waves and take jungles
- Once you get your core items (DHS or Corrosion Scythe) you can start joining teamfights. Target the squishy heroes!
- Charge only using your blink if your stick hits a hero and summon a clone
- Use your 2nd skill to charge into battle, then use Flicker for escaping
- You can use your ultimate to dodge some spells
- Your ulti is also great for pushing and taking down towers quickly
- Remember your objectives—keep pushing! Sun is great for split pushing, especially with Arrival battle spell.
For Sun’s battle spells, we highly recommend Flicker as your additional mobility spell. Use it to get out of battle instantly or for chasing enemy heroes.
Aegis is also a great battle spell for Sun which gives you more confidence during teamfights. Use this if you think you already have good mobility or are confident with your positioning skills. As an added bonus, Aegis has a lower cooldown than Flicker too.
Finally, you can also go for Arrival if you want to go for a super split pushing strat and just want to take down towers instantly. With this spell, you can push one lane and when enemies come to defend, go to another empty lane and push. Rinse and repeat.
