Best Talismans In Invasion Mode In Mortal Kombat 1

Talismans in Mortal Kombat 1 can be used to give you extra protection during a fight or to give you an ability you wouldn’t have otherwise. This will help you deal more damage to an enemy. Talismans are equipped through the character tab, and they are easy to use, even in the middle of a fight.

You’ll get talismans from defeating enemies in invasion mode, finding them inside locked chests, finishing invasion modes, or meeting with secret figures who will give them to you. We list the best talismans in the game; you can use them to get through the toughest fights you encounter.

8 Acid Armor

Not only does the Acid Armor Talisman boost your armor to give you more damage protection, but it is also particularly powerful against acid damage. There is one extremely well-known MK legacy character who is known to deal acid damage, so you’ll want to have this armor on before you face him.

Both Cyrax and Baraka are prone to acid damage compared to other characters, so this talisman is especially useful for them, but it’s still a great all-around item. The acid armor protects all characters generally from acid damage in fights with an opponent who uses acid damage.

7 Ice Armor

Ice armor is effective against all ice damage, something that Sub Zero is known for dishing out. With this protection, his primary method of fighting is severely weakened, and that gives you a distinct advantage.

Equip this armor before you have to face this famed icy foe, and you will end up taking a lot less damage, which is extremely helpful when you have to face this fight. Several MK foes can have ice and frost damage abilities, so keep this talisman handy.

6 Outworld Dragonfly

Use this on a talisman to create a talisman that will speed up all projectiles. That means any throwable objects you have will become rapid-fire damage-dealers for you while the talisman is activated, and your damage will be boosted during this time.

The Outworld Dragonfly is available at the invasion shop, and there is no level requirement, so you can purchase this modification as soon as you can afford it. This is a great way to give yourself a quick burst of extra damage when a fight is getting tough.

5 Magic Fists

Make every punch you land on an enemy deal magic damage with the Magic Fists Talisman. This is a level two talisman that has four charges in total, and it will help you defeat your foes more quickly by simply punching them to death, which can be pretty fun.

You can purchase this from the first invasion shop you will visit, the man who is standing on the wooden bridge, but it is one of the more expensive items in the shop, so you may need to save up for it first. Even non-magical characters can use this talisman to increase their damage.

4 Edenian Dust

You can sort of copy Scorpion’s signature move if you have some Edenian Dust. This talisman will pull enemies closer to you, a classic move that’s been a huge part of the Mortal Kombat franchise since the beginning.

Edenian Dust is purchasable at the first invasion shop you will discover. This is a handy talisman to have if you want to perform a close-up attack, and when used properly, this can sway a fight that’s not going your way.

3 Windbreaker

The Windbreaker Talisman is the best in the game for a couple of reasons. First, it gives you an extra ability that does a lot of damage to your opponent. You will use this talisman to summon strong wind, which will not only deal damage to your foe but also stun them briefly.

The animation for this is particularly amusing, and it’s different for each character, so the windbreaker talisman is a must-get. You will find it behind one of the netherstone walls in Shang Tsung’s Lab…after you defeat the encounter there, of course.

2 Chaos Armor

This talisman grants the gift of invisibility, which allows you to avoid damage while it’s activated. The effects of the talisman are brief, but it does last long enough to potentially sway a losing battle in your favor. It is a good emergency item to keep handy.

You must reach invasion level 16 before you can use this talisman, which is available after you defeat a secret fight you will find as you level through the various invasion modes. The Chaos Armor is highly effective, and it’s definitely worth getting this item.

1 Johnny Cage’s Roomba

A fan-favorite Easter egg and a decently powerful item as well, Johnny Cage’s Roomba is one of the most difficult to obtain and one of the talismans you’re definitely going to want the most. It’s also a surprisingly wicked little thing that deals a lot of damage.

You can only find the Roomba, which is properly called Automatic Cybertronic Shinslayer, at the Seasonal Challenger Tower at Gateway Portal Mesa. You will have to fight all the way up the tower until you encounter the device and battle against it.
