Mortal Kombat 11 Jade

You don’t need to be too mindful of timing when playing as Jade since she can take her time and do what she needs to do with the help of some great range provided via her staff.

She can keep foes busy and then strike them down when she sees fit. Her quick parry and immunity to projectiles great help with this.

Weaknesses

Despite all those strengths, her own combo strings aren’t that powerful and just end in a special. Moreover, foes just have to walk forward to close the distance on Jade and then start pressurizing her.

Tips to Play

Jade is a powerful mid-range zoner due to her amazing range and her Parry is so quick that it can easily be used to trick foes into attacking. You can use this to your advantage and catch them by surprise with a slap to their face.

Her anti-air attacks are amazing and can be used to handle any foe that requires jumping to reach.
