HOK Marco Polo’s Skills

Chain Reaction (Passive): Each of Marco Polo’s basic attacks and skill damage applies a layer of Defense Break to the target (5 layers for minions). When it reaches 10 layers, it restores 30 energy, and the target triggers Defense Break. During Defense Break, the target takes an additional 40 (+35% physical attack) true damage (this damage can critically strike) each time they are hit by Marco Polo’s damage, lasting 5 seconds. Marco Polo’s skill damage only benefits from 50% of on-hit effects.

Cooldown: 0s Cost: 0
Tips: Marco Polo can reserve skills to deal burst damage after triggering true damage.

Resplendent Revolver (Skill 01): Marco Polo gains 10% movement speed while continuously shooting in the target direction, each shot dealing 130 (+27% physical scaling) physical damage and triggering on-hit effects. Hitting an enemy restores 10 energy. Additional attack speed affects the number of bullets shot, with 5/7/9/11 bullets at 0/80%/130%/180% attack speed.

Cooldown: 5s Cost: 75/69/63/57/51/45
Tips: Gaining movement speed during shooting allows Marco Polo to easily maneuver around the edge of enemy attacks, taking the initiative.

Roaming Gun (Skill 02): Marco Polo blinks in the target direction, instantly appearing at the target location. Passive: When enemy heroes are within 500 range of Marco Polo, he gains 20% bonus damage and 15/18/21/24/27/30% movement speed.

Cooldown: 5s, Cost: 75/69/63/57/51/45
Tips: Skilled Marco Polo players will actively approach opponents to gain bonus damage and movement speed after analyzing enemy skill states.

Fevered Barrage (Ultimate) : Marco Polo blinks to a specified location and continuously fires bullets around him, dealing 150 (+35% physical attack) physical damage. Additional attack speed affects the number of bullet waves, with 10/13/16/19 waves at 0/80%/130%/180% attack speed. Bullets trigger on-hit effects.

Cooldown: 50/45/40s Cost: 75/60/45
Tips: The ultimate can deal massive area damage, but be aware that moving while casting the ultimate will cancel it immediately.

Marco Polo Synergy

  • Zhong Wuyan: Zhong Wuyan’s petrifying ability allows Marco Polo to easily stack attack counts and deal true damage.
  • Niu Mo: In team fights, Niu Mo provides defensive capabilities for Marco Polo, slowing and knocking up nearby enemies, and providing an output environment.

Marco Polo’s Counter

After Marco Polo accumulates a certain number of attacks, opponents should actively maintain distance to avoid Marco Polo dealing true damage and burst damage. Although Marco Polo’s ultimate has a short dash, he cannot move while casting it. Saving crowd control skills or spreading out can avoid his burst damage.

  • Smith & Blade: Their combat range greatly exceeds Marco Polo’s. As a marksman, it is easy to be hit by their attacks during team fights.
  • Hua Mulan: Like Marco Polo, Hua Mulan is a highly agile hero, making it difficult for Marco Polo to escape her pursuit.

Team Fight Strategy

When accumulating a certain number of attacks, Marco Polo will deal additional true damage for the next 5 seconds. Using skills to deal burst damage will result in higher damage. Skilled players can get close to enemies during their skill downtime to deal additional damage and gain movement speed.

Marco Polo needs to approach enemies at the right time to deal massive damage, so accurate situation assessment is crucial: for example,

  • whether the enemy has used their burst skills and entered cooldown,
  • whether their crowd control skills have been used,
  • whether their mobility skills are still available, etc.

Marco Polo is a highly mobile and agile marksman hero with strong continuous damage output and additional true damage. His basic attacks and skill damage can break the target’s defense and restore a certain amount of energy.

Marco Polo’s Gameplay Strategy

As a pro gamer, mastering Marco Polo’s gameplay requires adapting your strategy to each phase of the game. Here’s a breakdown of how to approach the early, mid, and late game to secure high kills:

Early Game:

  1. Focus on farming: In the early game, prioritize last-hitting minions to accumulate gold and experience, which will help you acquire items faster and level up your skills.
  2. Harass opponents: Utilize Marco Polo’s range and passive skill to poke and harass enemy heroes in your lane. This will force them to play defensively and potentially miss out on farm.
  3. Coordinate with your support: Work closely with your support hero to set up kills or force enemies out of the lane. Remember that heroes like Milady, Zhong Wuyan and Niu Mo synergize well with Marco Polo.

Mid Game:

  1. Roam and Gank: As you gain levels and items, start roaming to other lanes to help your teammates secure kills. Utilize your mobility and burst damage potential to catch enemies off-guard.
  2. Objectives: Work with your team to secure objectives like towers, dragons, or buffs. These objectives will provide your team with gold, experience, and map control.
  3. Positioning: In team fights, maintain proper positioning to maximize your damage output while staying safe from enemy crowd control and burst damage.

Late Game:

  1. Prioritize high-value targets: Focus on eliminating enemy carries and high-damage dealers first. Your true damage and consistent damage output will be crucial in taking them down.
  2. Stick with your team: As the game progresses, team fights become more common and important. Stay close to your teammates, especially your frontline and support, to ensure you’re protected while dealing damage.
  3. Secure major objectives: Work with your team to contest and secure major objectives like Tempest Dragon, or high ground turrets. These objectives can provide significant advantages that may help close out the game.

Throughout all phases of the game, be mindful of your positioning, map awareness, and decision-making. Balancing aggression with caution and strategically utilizing your skills will help you secure high kills and lead your team to victory.
