Arena of Valor 101

  • Like other titles such as League of Legends, AoV involves 5v5 matches on various 3-lane maps.
  • Each player chooses a hero. Only a single hero can be active on a team at one time.  
  • Competitive matches take place on the map and mode called "Battle Map". 
    • The objective of a team is to destroy the enemy's home base by traversing down one of 3 lanes and defeating points called defense towers. 
    • Each tower must be cleared in order to proceed down a lane. 
  • The team that destroys their opponent's home base first will win the game. 


  • Players can pick from champions that fall into the following categories: 
    • Assassin, Warrior, Mages, Marksmen, Support, and Tanks. 
    • Each class has its own role to play, and players should choose their lane accordingly. 
  • "Wild Zone Control" - There are three monsters in the left Wild Zone: one buff monster and two small monsters. Kill them to gain experience and Gold and restore a small amount of HP.
  • Use of recovery skills will be interrupted if players take damage, so return to the safe zone before using them.
