What’s up guys! we are back with a new and more advanced guide for Arena of Valor. In this guide, we will talk about arcana, laning, and more advanced guide about team structure. So let us get started…
What Is Arcana?
Arcana is an attribute that is added at the very start of the game. You choose it before the game begins and the Arcana system is unlocked when you reach level seven. Choosing a sensible Arcana for your hero before the battle will grant quite significant advantages on you when fighting.
Arcana are divided into three levels in the game. The higher the level of the Arcana the greater the bonus effect benefited by it on to heroes. Arcana can be purchased at the shop and earned through achievements among other means.
Types Of Arcana
Arcana are divided into red, purple, and green arcana.
- Red Arcana are focused more on boosting the hero’s attacking abilities.
- Purple Arcana are focused more on improving the hero’s self-healing abilities.
- Green Arcana are focused more on improving the hero’s defensive capabilities.
Each Arcana color is again classified into eight different attributes. Every Arcana has different tendencies in terms of the attributes they bestow. Only the most sensible choice of Arcana and configuration will bring out the best in a hero.
The Significance Of Arcana
Many players wonder about the following. Even if you have the best sort of Arcana it will only grant a bonus of a few dozen points of damage. A few hundred Gold will make it up in the late game so what is the point of looking at Arcana? actually at the beginning of the game when everyone’s attack damage, ability power, health, and defense are all quite low. A few dozen extra damage or health points can bring about substantial change.
For example with the following two heroes if you have a situation where someone has no Arcana bonus. The hero with the Arcana bonus is obviously in a superior position. So their chance of victory will naturally be greater as well.
The same logic also dictates that when Jungling where there is no Arcana bonus. Typically one would have to scamper back to recuperate after taking out half of a jungle area. There will be an obvious increase in the heroes effectiveness in killing monsters with an Arcana boost.
How To Choose Arcana
Each Arcana page will only have maximum 30 Arcana slots. The number of which will increase along with your level. So choosing a suitable Arcana set for your hero will allow you to score points more quickly.
When choosing your preferred hero the system will give you in the recommendation panel, a recommendation of suitable Arcana levels between 1 and 3. Of course, you can also discover Arcana arrangements on your own.
You can find unique Arcana setups for yourself. Special Arcana, such as those that deal with movement speed, cooldown, reduction, and so on will contain a special surprise with the right gear and/or routines.
Common Team Structure
A sensible team configuration and choice of heroes will give your team’s big advantages. Heroes are divided into six classes in total and they are respectively tanks, warriors, assassins, mages, marksman, and support. Different classes of heroes will have different effects on the team.
So how should one choose and sensibly configure once the team in an actual battle regarding six heroes classes specifically?
Standard Team Structure
A standard team will have respectively a tank, warrior, assassin, archer, and mage. You can make a general judgment about whether to put a support on a battlefield based on your sides team structure.
This is a relatively complete team setup across different attributes. And there are no easily discernable weaknesses with this setup over any areas.
Team With Double Jungler
A standard setup is for an individual hero to harvest monsters. If the Jungler’s gear allows him or her to develop more quickly, then you get significant damage to the enemies later on in the mid-late game.
However, the drawback is that having the insufficient support of the early game could lead to the other four teammates getting pin down by the enemy or otherwise ineffective monster harvesting.
This will lead to a lack of damage in later battle. However, doubling down on jungle clearing will boost team stability. One must be cautious to select agile and nimble heroes.
After both heroes have clean out the upper and lower jungle, they can work together with their other teammates against their enemies. If they can take down their opponents multiple times. This will give them the economic advantage over enemy forces in the early game and destroy enemy morale.
Team With Strong Support Ability
The most significant feature of this setup is that few heroes have fast movement abilities who could carry out constant guerilla style support or raid on the upper, mid and lower paths. Interrupting the enemies rhythm.
Therefore your team setup is obviously particularly important for this arrangement. Effectively supporting and taking down foes will be a great advantage to the team or even remedy the situation when the tide of battle is against you.
Team With Rear Strongly Protected
Heroes positioned at the rear usually are the main damage dealers in a team. However, they can let their side down as they are not especially great at survival and their easily and quickly taken out.
Therefore you need several tank type heroes in the front row to absorb the main brand of the damage in the enemies controlling attacks. Guaranteeing your side’s advantage in team battles. So you have to select two tank heroes to effectively protect your rear.
These are common team structures, of course, specifics configuration will still depend on the heroes that your team chooses and sensible configuration will have to be based on a general consideration of every hero different attributes and features. Considering the different effects they bestow.
Jungle Tips And Tricks
In this guide, we are going to discuss common Jungling tips. A wide choice of jungler can help create an advantage in team battles. Assuming they can develop well.
Heroes with relatively stronger ganking abilities and a certain degree of defensive and lifesteal capability are a bit more suited to a jungle heroes.
So what are some elements that lead to victory and what are some tricks to jungle?
Advantage In Level
There are six monsters in the jungle of each team. The jungler should endeavor to clear all the monsters as fast as possible to reach level 4 and unlock its ultimate before the enemy junglers do.
A level 4 jungler can (when teammates in your enemy are only level 3) work alongside allies to snipe enemies for an early opening advantage.
Counter Jungle Skills
What is most important for junglers in the early to mid game is to grow and develop rapidly. However, the spawns only appear on your side of the jungle will clearly not be enough. Thus we will have to speed up our development by invading the jungle of the enemy.
Jungler can assemble alongside a few teammates and head to the enemies jungle. Boosting team battle power by taking sage golem and mighty golem with a minimum casualty.
Counter Jungle On Level 1
Entering the bush can hide you from the enemies. This will help a jungler to steal enemy monsters away to a great extent. Assuming that they are not discovered by the enemy in the process. The monsters are drawn into and kill them in the bush to avoid the enemy line of sights.
Abyssal Dragon And Dark Slayer
Keep an eye on Abyssal Dragon and Dark Slayer. Junglers need to be roaming about constantly in the game. They will need to keep a constant eye on the enemy movements apart from developing themselves quickly.
The jungler will be keeping a close eye on whats happening around Abyssal Dragon and Dark slayer after it respawns. And when there may be several enemy heroes out of their line of sights to stop them from running off with great buff.
Picking Your Battles When Jungling
Junglers whose clearing monster by themselves in the jungle might well choose to give up their side’s area when they encounter multiple enemy heroes trying to steal monster away. And when there are no teammates available to provide support at that moment, they can go quickly to the enemies jungle to kill some monsters there to make up for the loses on their side.
Lane Control Tips And Tricks
In this guide, we will be discussing some methods and common-sense on controlling lanes. Excellent lane control will determine to a large extent how fast an enemy Tower can be destroyed and is essential for obtaining game victory.
So what are some techniques that can be used in actual battle?
Estimate Enemy Skill’s Cooldown
During laning, you will need to be familiar with the skills and features of the enemy heroes. Thus you can calculate the most likely times for the enemy to use their skills. as well as their cooldown times to avoid their powers as much as possible and to beat back or kill enemy heroes to win superiority.
Lane Position Choices In Various Situations
The final objective of the lane, apart from the financial and experience benefits that it can give to heroes is to protect and help heroes to take down towers when arriving at enemy towers. The best situation is typical to exercise control in front of our towers but still outside their range of attack.
It is worth noticing that you should not allow the enemy’s creep lane to enter the tower while laning. Otherwise, they may be able to directly bypass the tower and start attacking.
Do not stop for too long outside the enemy tower when our creep Lane reaches it. Otherwise, it will be quite easy for enemy heroes to kill you in a joint attack.
Support And Team Cooperation
You can clear a lane and put pressure on the enemy with help from teammates in the event of a stalemate between you and your opponent. You should get teammates in other positions to help clear creep lanes as fast as possible should the enemies creep have already mated to our sides Tower and work together to beat them back.
However, a call for reinforcements should be given as soon as possible when our sides creep Lane makes it to the enemies tower to take it down faster and put victory in the game on a very firm footing. You should pay attention to the creep lanes both of yours and your enemies all the time during the game to act quickly and flexible.
Controlling the lane into a certain position when the opportunity comes may allow a challenger to reap unexpected rewards.
How To Use Resources To Their Fullest Extent
Allocating resources well is an important element in helping your team gain a certain advantage over the course of battle. It can get you ahead of the opposition and put the final victory on firm footing.
But how should these resources be used to their most reasonable fullest extent?
Pay Attention To The Birth Of Monsters And Its Buff
The Might Golem and Sage Golem will appear 30 seconds. The Spirit Sentinel 110 seconds and the Abyssal Dragon 2 minutes. Whereas the Dark Slayer will appear every 6 minutes in the game.
Remember that the buff will continue for a certain amount of time. The Sage and Might buffs will continue for 1 minute and 10 seconds. The life-force buff will last for 1 minute. The dark Slayers wrath buff will continue for 1 minute and 20 seconds. The abyssal dragon’s buff offers extra gold and experience thus it has no time limits. The effects of these buffs will provide a great boost to players power.
Timing Jungling Sequence
Players can make a decent judgment on which direction to go jungling. When they understand when map resources respawn. The second wave of Sage and Might buffs can be cleared 20 seconds after slaying them in the first 30 seconds of the game.
You can find an opportunity to organize teammates to take out the abyssal dragon and spirits Sentinel 3 to 5 minutes after the start of the game. And then whether to tackle the dark Slayer 7 to 10 minutes after the start of the game.
Uses Of The Spirit Sentinel
The effect of the life-force buff is to provide the Slayer with a 1% HP regen every second. players with life force buff can last a bit longer in team battles. Take more damage and the longer you can survive the better the chance of eventual victory.
Tricks About The Dark Slayer
Given the obvious advantages of the dark Slayers wrath buff, gaining or not gaining the buff can be crucial to victory. There are mainly two common tactics, the first involves teammates lying in wait in the bush while one member goes to attack the Dark Slayer. Attracting the enemy to come over at which time the team can take chance to slay the enemies and then at the end the Dark Slayer as well.
The second is to wait in the bush initially while the enemy attacks the dark Slayer and then rush in and take it down when the Slayer is just about to be killed by enemy forces.
These are just some of the tips for using and obtaining resources. you will probably not get all the resources on the map and actual combat and players will need to make a decision about which resources to go for in light of the overall situation.
Laning Tips And Tricks
We’re going to share some tips about laning with you in this guide. Different classes of heroes will have different positions and effects in the game. The ways in which three lanes of heroes operate will be very different.
So how should we choose suitable heroes for our laning?
Laning In The Middle
The middle lane is the most important in the game. It connects to the upper and lower lanes and upper and lower jungle areas. It is extremely important for controlling the range of enemy activities and observing their motions. Thus it is often suggested to choose a relatively long ranged mage. Further, the mid lane mage should be able to quickly clear the lane and to roam further afield as long as the mid lane tower is safe.
If he or she would be able to go and observe the enemy junglers movement, protect his or her own jungle area and grab an advantage for the team by sniping alongside laning teammates when the opportunity arises.
Two Person Laning
The lineup for a two-person laning will typically be that of a marksman and tank or marksman and warrior. At the start of the game, the tank will need to help the marksman get the might buff at the first available opportunity to boost their marksman’s damage. They can also use the buff to take first blood after making it back to the bottom quickly.
Two people laning can roam about and observe more around abyssal Dragon or dark Slayer, provided they have the upper hand in the laning.
As soon as they discover that the enemy is attacking these monsters they should send out a message asking teammates to go and help in order to get the essential buff and avoid the enemy taking it. This will prevent the enemy from opening up a financial advantage over you in the early stages of the laning.
Single Person Laning
The purpose of a hero laning alone within a team is to harass the enemy and support teammates at short notice. The hero should quickly clear the lane and bring our creeps to the enemy tower should our side enjoy a financial advantage. This will draw out one or even more enemy heroes to protect their tower. At which time the single laning hero can easily head over to kill Abyssal Dragon or Dark Slayer with teammates and get an even greater advantage.
In A Position Of Weakness In Laning
you can consider giving up one of the outer towers on a lane for an opportunity to regroup in support of team fight when you are in a weaker position against your opponents in the laning. The potential for victory in the team battle will be greatly increased with a numerical superiority which will give you a money edge and which will make up for the loss of the tower.
These are some common laning tips in the game. Of cours, the pace of battle can move very fast and only your on-the-spot judgments and responses will be able to gain final victory for the team.
Dark Slayer And Abyssal Dragon
Dark Slayer and abyssal dragon provide buffs to the entire team but how can we win an advantage in team battles when it comes to these buff monsters?
Keep A Constant Eye On What Is Going On In Certain Areas
Slaying these team buff monsters will give certain financial and attribute benefits in battle. Which can help to reduce the disparity between our forces and enemies when we are in a weaker position.
On the other hand, when momentum is going our way we can press the attack and greatly increase our chance of victory. We need to keep a constant eye on what is happening around Dark Slayer and abyssal dragon during the game and watch out for an attack on it by enemy forces.
The gain or loss of these buff monsters is particularly important to victory in the game.
Deciding Whether To Take The Team Buff Monster In Various Situations
A decision can be made about whether to take or retreat from the team buff monster when one party has the advantage over the other. Or where both are more evenly matched to avoid unnecessary losses from getting hit by the enemy when seeking these monster buffs.
If your team be in a weaker position then you should try to find an opportunity to take them and retrieve the situation. Or quickly plan a response to stop the enemy once you find out that they have the same idea.
Strategies About Dark Slayer And Abyssal Dragon
Apart from providing the team with financial and attribute benefits these monsters can also have an effect in forcing a fight with the enemy team.
The enemy team will retreat to a tower in a team fight, this is the right moment to slay the dark Slayer and abyssal dragon. Those heroes in the team with stronger damage capabilities will be responsible for attacking them. Whereas other teammates should lie in wait nearby in the bush to stop the enemy from coming in and grabbing the buff.
You could choose to attack the big monsters for an advantage in a messy team battle. But assuming your position is strong enough you could give up your attack for a moment for the chance to press the destruction of their Tower which could mean faster victory.
A Choice Between Abyssal Dragon Or Dark Slayer
Slaying the abyssal dragon will give the whole team some financial benefits and experience in the game. Whereas killing a dark Slayer will provide your entire team with 30% attack and magical attack strength boost.
The different bonuses may sometimes make it hard for people to decide which to go for. We may have freedom of choice when our side has the upper hand. But not so much if trying to kill the dark Slayer when our side has been weakened due to the relatively higher difficulty and amount of time needed to slay him.
The team’s losses would then be even greater, in this sort of situation you might want to try and find an opportunity to slay the abyssal dragon first to give your entire team some financial benefits. This will help you close the gap between you and the enemy.
These are a few common strategies and techniques for the monster buff zones. Actual combat will help your team fight the right battle at the right time for these buffs leading them toward victory.
