When casting, it automatically adds stacks of Marks to friendly heroes within range and recovers 50/60/70/80/90/100 (+15% Magic Power) HP.

Cooldown: 5s Cost: 60
Tips: This skill can heal allies and yourself. When you have enough mana, you can use this skill to recover HP. In team fights, it provides a decent healing effect for teammates.

Master of Life (Ultimate): Chemist detonates all nearby Marks, dealing 200/250/300 (+40% Magic Power) magic damage to enemies and healing friendly heroes for 80/100/120 (+20% Magic Power) HP. Each layer of Marks increases the damage and healing effect by 50%. Additionally, Chemist recovers 450/600/750 (+30% Magic Power) HP for himself.

Cooldown: 18/15/12s Cost: 130

Little Lute Hero Image

1) Team fight utility: Both heroes have good healing abilities, acting as primary healers in team fights, ensuring their teammates’ health is maintained and increasing the team’s margin for error.

2) Skill synergy: Little Lute’s second skill provides good crowd control for Bian Que, allowing him to easily stack 5 layers of passive effects with his 1st, 2nd skills and normal attacks. When used together with his ultimate, it deals high damage.

Hegemon Hero Image


Xiang Yu has strong tanking and crowd control abilities, able to push away enemy diving heroes and prevent them from getting close. His ultimate’s crowd control effect also disables the enemy’s counterplay. hegemon’s constant protection, combined with Bian Que’s slow and poison stacking, can make the enemy heroes suffer greatly.

  • Frontline Tanks and Initiators: Heroes like Luban and Hegemon provide excellent initiation and crowd control, allowing Chemist to safely deal damage from the backline.
  • High Crowd Control Supports: Combining Chemist’s control abilities with supports like Little Lute or Diao Chan can create devastating chain crowd control effects, locking down enemies for extended periods.

Countering Chemist

Prince of Lanling Hero Image

Prince of Lanling

Lanling’s stealth and burst capabilities allow him to easily approach and assassinate Chemist.

Hua Mulan Hero image


Hua Mulan’s high burst damage output can quickly kill a poorly positioned Chemist.

  • Mobile Assassins: Heroes like Mooney King, Prince of Lanling or Berserker can quickly close the gap and eliminate Chemist, exploiting his vulnerability to burst damage and lack of escape mechanisms.
  • Long-Range Poke Heroes: Heroes with long-range poke abilities, such as Marco Polo or Garo, can harass Chemist from a distance, making it difficult for him to engage in fights effectively.

General Tips to Counter Chemist

  1. Bian Que’s solo fighting capabilities are relatively weak; consider isolating him for an easy kill.
  2. Dodge Chemist’s skills by positioning yourself effectively.
  3. When Chemist’s passive stacks are high, avoid his ultimate’s range to prevent taking significant damage.

Team Fight Strategy and Battle Tactics

Bian Que mainly focuses on poking and supporting. He disrupts and wears down enemies with his 1st and 2nd skills while healing allies with his 2nd skill. His ultimate should be used when passive stacks are high, as it will yield higher benefits in both healing allies and damaging enemies.

In team fights, Bian Que primarily uses his 1st skill to limit enemies, his 2nd skill to deal damage or heal teammates depending on the situation, and his ultimate when passive stacks are high. Aim to hit as many enemies as possible for maximum damage output and better healing effects for your allies.

Mastering the Bian Que, the Chemist, requires understanding his versatile skill set, optimizing your build, and maintaining excellent positioning during fights.

By following the strategies, equipment recommendations, and tips outlined in this article, you’ll be well on your way to dominating the battlefield and outperforming your opponents in Honor of Kings. Embrace the power of this passive mage and lead your team to victory.
