· Crowd Control
Vale is a mage hero and the new hero in the mobile legends family. Vale at first few uses can be noticed as a very versatile hero as he can provide what is lacking in the team. He can become one of the burst damaged hero or a good crowd control hero or maybe both, depends on how you manipulate and upgrade his skills.
ABILITIY GUIDE AND TECHNIQUES
Passive – Windtalk
When vale reaches level 4/6/8, he can enhance one of his skills and each skill can be enhanced once only. Vale gains a stalk of Windtalk each time he kills or assists to kill an enemy. Each stalk provides 5 points of movement speed. Stacks up to 12 times.
This passive ability is very useful and should be carefully chosen what skills should be enhanced, I suggest that before choosing, one should assess how the battle field is going and what will help greatly to your allies.
1ST Skill – Wind blade
Vale unleashes two wind blades towards the left and right of a designated area. Wind blades deal 230(+80% Total Magic Power) points of magic Damage. When upgrading his ultimate, Vale can choose to increase the damage area or increase the skill’s damage.
Skill Consumption: 90/95/100/105/110/115
Base Damage: 230/270/310/350/390/430
This skill is very useful in damaging enemy heroes as it helps your team by making them easier to kill the enemy.

2ND Skill – Windblow
Vale sends a whirlwind forward. Deals 340 (+120% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage when the whirlwind hits an enemy unit. When upgrading his ultimate, Vale can choose to add a stop-on-hit effect or a knock-up effect to this skill.
Skill Consumption: 90/95/100/105/110/115
Base Damage: 340/380/420/460/500/540
This ability is great in damaging and slowing down your enemy because of the affects you can add to it either what upgrade you will choose for this skill it good crowd control, as you can choose to knock-up an enemy when hit or a stop–on-hit as it will still provide a slow effect to the enemy .

3rd Skill - Windstorm
Vale summons a windstorm in a designated area. After 1 seconds, the windstorm will explode, dealing 750 (+180% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage. When upgrading his ultimate, Vale can choose to increase damage or to add control effect to this skill.
Skill Consumption: 150/200/250
Base Damage: 700/900/1100
Vale’s ultimate is one of the best skill I have ever seen in the game since it provides a burst damage or a massive crowd control. This skill is sometimes annoying to your enemy especially when you choose to upgrade it to area control, the skill will act like a black hole trying to suck the enemy who are within the skill area to the center of the skill, this greatly helps you and your allies either to escape or give your allies to damage the enemies.

RECOMMENDED SKILL PATH
In choosing which skills you should prioritize for Vale, I recommend his second skill before your first skill and choose the ultimate next when it is already available. With this pattern you are able to deliver a strong crowd control for your team and delaying any damages that the enemy will give and/or provide massive burst damage to your enemies.

RECOMMENDED BATTLE SPELLS
Flicker - For Vale’s battle spell, I recommend the flicker spell, since it is really helpful when you try to catch a hero that is out of range, and at the same time, this serves as your escape spell when you run away from heroes, especially assassin types.
