Arena of Valor Wiki

In Arena of Valor a hero is a character that players can control. Each hero has his own unique set of abilities. Heroes start the game at a low level (1), and earn gold and XP from destroying towers, killing monsters, minions, and enemy players, and passively during the game or a support item. Gold can be used to purchase items that enhance hero statistics and also providing extra abilities. Experience unlocks higher levels of for the hero to upgrade their skills.

There are different classes for heroes, such as marksman, mage, assassin, tank, warrior, and support. Heroes can deal either physical damage or magic damage, buff themselves, debuff enemies, and inflict control effects to others. Some heroes have two roles instead of one, the first is their primary role and that will affect their playstyle. For example, Bright is an Assassin-Marksman. As Bright is primarily an Assassin, he will receive the Enraged Abyssal Dragon Buff Assassin: Soulblade instead of Marksman: Starstrike.


Proficiency is a measurement for how much a player has used a hero. A minimum of Expert (Medium) is required to play Ranked matches with that hero to prevent any players from performing poorly. Proficiency will be gained in all matches in various increments, the highest being 56 per match (apprentices only) or 1 (across all proficiency levels). Players cannot lose Proficiency.
