Arena of Valor Beta 38 Update Patch Notes

On September 28, Arena of Valor official servers will be taken offline while this update is being applied. You won’t be able to log in and play during this period.

Battlefield Changes

Wildling Adjustments

At present, mid laner heroes are usually left with no choice but to play roaming support after killing minions in the early game. The benefits of this course of action are unstable, and it is also accompanied by risks. As the lane closest to the tower at the place where minions converge, the middle lane should be safer than the side lanes. This time, we want to provide mid laners with more friendly options than to play roaming support, so we have added additional resource points in the early game to help them loot and grow in a relatively safe area.

However, we still hope that mid laner heroes can still support other heroes in other areas and become initiators in the early game, so we have limited the EXP and Gold gains from killing these wildlings to ensure everyone will still focus on their original strategy and only consider competing for this newly-added wildling as a backup option.

New wildlings: Hermit Crab

Hermit Crabs patrol the area where they spawn and don’t attack enemies.

Hermit Crab

  • Base HP: +2500
  • Base Armor: +600
  • Base Magic Defense: +0
  • Base Gold rewards: +45
  • First Refresh Time: 40s
  • Refresh Interval: 60s
  • Refresh Stop Time: 480s

Overhauling of Wildlings

Cruiser Hawks have now been replaced with Lacewings.

Cruiser Hawks

Lacewings have the same attributes and features as Cruiser Hawks. Due to changes to the terrain, we’ve only tweaked the patrol logic of this wildling. This includes the patrol route of Lacewings and the patrol route of the Vision Sprite after the blue side kills the Lacewings. At the same time, we’ve also optimized the Vision Sprite’s effects (including Vision Sprites generated when the Vision Tower is triggered a second time): You can now still see enemies in the bush even if the Vision Sprite is outside the bush. The performance and effects are now more unified.

Slayer Gameplay Adjustments

We’ve added a reminder for Slayer Vanguard waves. This will indicate the number of waves of Slayer Vanguards that will appear after killing the Slayer.

Slayer Gameplay Adjustments

Minion Adjustments

To make the current stage of the battlefield more obvious to players, Ballistas will now appear when the Iron Defense Line ends 4 minutes into the game. At the 8-minute mark, Ballistas will be replaced with Cannoneers to differentiate them.

New unit: Ballista

  • Base HP: +2500
  • Base Attack Damage: +192
  • Base Armor: +200
  • Base Magic Defense: +100
  • Base Gold rewards: +65

Minion changes:

In the first 4 minutes of the game, there will now be 2 melee minions and 1 ranged minion.

From the 4th to the 8th minute of the game, there will now be 1 melee minion, 1 ranged minion, and 1 Ballista. The broadcast will be changed to “The Iron Defense Line has disappeared. Send in the Ballistas.”

After the 8th minute of the game, there will be 1 melee minion, 1 ranged minion, and 1 Cannoneer. The broadcast will be changed to “Send in the Cannoneers.”

Ballista

Equipment Adjustments

Jungler Equipment Adjustments:

Designer’s perspective: On the Antaris Battlefield, Junglers are very important for driving the pace in the early game, but Junglers are currently too reliant on stacking effects, which makes them reap benefits too late in the game. We’re testing ways to shift some of their late-game power to the early game to better meet the needs of Junglers.

Tier 1 Jungler Weapon:

Added 10 attack damage

Tier 2 Attack Jungler Weapon:

Added 20 attack damage

Reduced the attack damage gained per stack from 2 to 1

Tier 2 HP Jungler Weapon:

Added Unique Passive – Burn: Deals 50-78 magic damage to nearby enemies every second (deals 50% more damage to minions and wildlings).

Reduced the HP gained per stack from 50 to 20

Tier 2 Magic Jungler Weapon:

Added 40 ability power

Reduced the ability power gained per stack from 6 to 3

Tier 2 Attack Speed Jungler Weapon:

Added 20 attack damage

Reduced the attack speed gained per stack from 1.5% to 0.8%

Tier 3 Attack Jungler Weapon:

Removed the damage boost effect against heroes

Directly increases 80 attack damage, reduces cooldowns by 10%, and increases 60 physical penetration

Reduced the attack damage gained per stack from 2 to 1

Tier 3 HP Jungler Weapon:

Changed the build to: Tier 2 weapon + armor + Red Crystal

Directly provides 600 HP and 120 armor

Reduced the HP gained per stack from 50 to 20

Tier 3 Magic Jungler Weapon:

Directly provides 140 ability power and reduces cooldowns by 10%, but doesn’t change the cursed blade effect

Reduced the ability power gained per stack from 6 to 3

Tier 3 Attack Speed Jungler Weapon:

Increased attack damage from 15 to 30

Increased attack speed from 15% to 20%

Reduced the attack speed gained per stack from 1.5% to 0.8%

Support Equipment Adjustments:

Designer’s perspective: At present, support equipment provides too much Gold and EXP in the early game but too little in the late game, so we have adjusted the Gold and EXP provided by support equipment. In addition, some Tier 2 support equipment seemed to have exceptionally good cost efficiency, which made certain support heroes benefit too much at certain points. Therefore, we’ve tweaked the cost efficiency of Tier 2 support equipment but left Tier 3 support equipment untouched.

Tier 2 Support Equipment:

Reduced the cooldown reduction of Lv. 2 support equipment from 10% to 5%

Increased the stacks of Elemental Crystal by 4

Reduced the HP, attack damage, and ability power provided per Crystal by Lv. 2 support equipment from 60 to 40, 3 to 2, and 5 to 3, respectively. The values of Lv. 3 support equipment have not been changed.

EXP and Gold:

Original: Provides 8 Gold/EXP every 3s when in the second-to-last place in terms of Gold/EXP

New: Provides 6-10 Gold/EXP every 3s when in the second-to-last place in terms of Gold/EXP. This increases as time passes in the game

Devotion End Time: Increased from 8 minutes to 10 minutes

Terrain and Bush Adjustments

Improved the quality of bushes

Improved the overall terrain of Dragon Lane, including adjusting the location of the bushes near the Creek, adding bushes at the intersection next to the red side’s tower, adjusting the position of the blue side’s tower, and adjusting the length of the bushes on the lane to make it more suitable.

Adjustments to the healing pack behind towers

We wanted to reduce the pressure on players in the early game. We’ve increased the recovery amount of the healing packs behind towers, which will hopefully result in fewer heroes on the lanes being killed or forcefully recalled due to making mistakes in the early game.

Mid-lane healing packs: Changed one-time recovery of 20% mana and 106 HP and 35 mana recovery per second over 6s to one-time recovery of 20% mana and 250 HP and 35 mana recovery per second over 5s

Side-lane healing packs: Changed 106 HP and 35 mana recovery per second over 3s to 250 HP and 35 mana recovery per second over 5s

Resurrection Time Adjustments

Higher level heroes are stronger, which also makes them more difficult to kill. However, so far, the resurrection time has only considered the amount of time that passes in the game, which isn’t very reasonable. We have now adjusted the calculation of the resurrection time to factor in the level of heroes.

In short, higher level heroes will need to pay a higher price for dying to give the losing side more chances to turn the situation around.

Faster Resurrection in the Early Game

As it is very easy for heroes to be killed by mistake in the early stage of the game, it is easy for players to miss the next wave of minions. Therefore, we’ve added a mechanic to alleviate this situation.

Added: The altar’s speed-up effect will grant a greater movement speed bonus and a longer duration to heroes who are killed before the 2nd minute of the game.

Battlefield Experience Improvements

In-game Active Signal Improvements

To help players communicate quickly about their current builds and skills in a targeted manner, we have added a number of signals to the shop screen and the overall results screen. Tapping these will send corresponding signals to teammates to help them make better judgment calls on the situation in the current match.

Added equipment purchase status in the shop

After selecting an equipment in the in-game shop, a signal button will appear in the equipment details. Tap this to send a corresponding signal to teammates

When the selected equipment has been purchased, the following signal will be sent: Purchased equipment name

When the selected equipment has not been purchased, the following signal will be sent: xx short to purchase equipment name

New signals for the in-game results screen

Tap the equipment on the in-game results screen to send the equipment purchase status of this hero

For example: Arthur has purchased Short Sword

Tap the Talent icon of an ally hero on the results screen to send this hero’s Talent cooldown status

For example: Arthur’s Flicker can be used again in 20s

Tap the Talent icon of an enemy hero on the results screen to keep track of whether this hero’s Talent is still on cooldown (not the actual cooldown)

Tap the avatar of an ally hero on the results screen to send the current cooldown status of this hero’s ultimate

For example: Arthur’s ultimate is ready

Tap the avatar of an enemy hero on the results screen to keep track of whether this hero’s ultimate is still on cooldown (not the actual cooldown)

Tap the avatar of a hero on the results screen. If the hero is under Lv. 4, a signal indicating that this hero’s ultimate has not been leveled up will be sent

For example: Arthur’s ultimate has not been leveled up

Tap a hero’s KDA and Gold on the results screen. If the selected hero is dead, a signal indicating this hero’s remaining resurrection time will be sent

For example: Arthur resurrects in 10s

Tap a hero’s KDA and Gold on the results screen. If the selected hero is alive, a signal indicating this hero’s current level and Gold will be sent

For example: Arthur (Lv. 15) Gold: 10,000

Tap the new signal button in the lower right corner of the results screen to send a signal indicating the current Gold difference between both sides

Separated the emoji and animation tabs in the game

Death Review Improvements

Clarity Improvements

We’ve added an energy bar under the health bar of towers and bases to help Challengers identify the current damage capabilities of towers.

In addition, we’ve also improved the bullet and hit effects of towers at different intensity levels.

Hero skill clarity improvements for all skins of these heroes

We hope that more accurate descriptions of the damage range and more reasonable expression of skill effects will reduce the confusion over visual effects on the battlefield and give Challengers useful information quickly and more efficiently in a complex battlefield environment.

Battle Stats

Added a Tournament Type filter for Battle Stats. Players can use this to view the battle stats of different tournaments.

Quick Armory Improvements for Separate Equipment Changes

It is now possible to change equipment in builds separately in the Armory system on the Hero Selection screen.

Balance Adjustments

Taara

Designer’s perspective: Currently, only 1 of Taara’s HP regen effects can take effect when her passive’s HP regen has been activated. Considering Taara’s current weak performance in the game and HP regen benefits that are in line with conventional perception, we have adjusted Taara’s passive HP regen effect when multiple skills have been used continuously to give her stronger survivability and pulling ability.

Passive: Taara uses her skill to passively regenerate HP. The passive HP regen of the previous skill becomes invalid after the next skill is used → Taara uses her skill to passively regenerate HP. The passive HP regen of the previous skill is still valid after the next skill is used

Thorne

Designer’s perspective: In the previous version, Thorne’s blue bullet gave a bad combat experience to his enemies. Thorne’s blue bullet’s overwhelming strength was mainly due to its unreasonable damage structure and unclear damage range, which evaporated enemies instantly before they could prepare for it. Therefore, given the bad combat experience and the range characteristics of the blue bullet, we’ve adjusted the damage structure of blue bullets and tweaked the damage range of the enhanced normal attack + blue bullet so that it is more in line with standard conventions. We’ve also adjusted the bonus calculation of the purple bullet to make it more reasonable.

To make up for and improve the experience, we’ve tweaked the logic after casting his skill 2 so that he will recover energy and gain an enhanced normal attack after using his skill 2 in all circumstances. This will allow players to use his skill 2 according to the battlefield situation without constantly checking whether he has any bullets reloaded.

S1:

Purple Bullet Damage: Magic damage equal to 2%/3%/4% (every 100AD +0.5%/0.75%/1%) of Max HP -> Magic damage equal to 2%/3%/4% (every additional 75AD +0.5%/0.75%/1%) of Max HP

Green Bullet Range: 3/4.5/6m -> 2.5/3.5/4.5m

Green Bullet Damage: 0.8AD for the main target and 0.4/0.6/0.8AD for all secondary targets (increases up to 1.6AD as the skill’s level increases; can only trigger critical hits against the main target) -> 0.8AD for all targets (can only trigger critical hits against the main target)

S2:

Additional Range: 1.5m -> 0m

Purple Bullet Damage: True damage equal to 2%/3%/4% (every 100AD +0.5%/0.75%/1%) of Max HP -> True damage equal to 2%/3%/4% (every additional 75AD +0.5%/0.75%/1%) of Max HP

Green Bullet Range: Enhanced Normal Attack 3/4.5/6m

Green Bullet Damage: 0.8AD for the main target and 0.8/1.2/1.6AD for all secondary targets (increases up to 3.2AD as the skill’s level increases; can only trigger critical hits against the main target) -> 1.6AD for all targets (only the 0.8AD portion of the damage can trigger critical hits against the main target)

New Mechanic: Restores all energy immediately after use (if no bullets are fired, the previously recorded bullet sequence will be restored, and the cooldown of skill 1 will be refreshed), then the enhanced basic attack will be performed.

Xeniel

Designer’s perspective: Xeniel is currently too strong as a Support character but has a relatively normal performance in the Slayer Lane. We have adjusted the growth of his passive and skill 1 to limit his ability to go up against enemies as a Support character in the early game without unduly affecting his performance after he grows in the Slayer Lane.

We’ve also reduced the control duration of his skill 2 to limit the control effects he provides in a group battle.

Passive Damage: 5% Max HP -> 3%-6% Max HP, increasing by 1% at Lv. 5/9/13

S1 Shield: 440-1,040 +3%-8% Max HP -> 300-800 +4%-9% Max HP

Skill 2 Knock Up: 1.25s -> 0.75s

New Hero

Teeri, Visage of Heart

Teeri, Visage of Heart

“A special inquisitor of the Eye of Light is about to come to the Antaris Battlefield. Let’s follow her as her gentle light dispels the darkness in our hearts! “

Teeri is a standing Marksman who can dish out massive area damage. Teeri can maximize the benefits of her penetrating normal attack from enhanced normal attack of her skill 1 and skill 2, standard movement method, and positioning to take advantage of densely packed enemies. Her ultimate adds relatively independent gameplay to Teeri’s core skills to create great highlights for players.

We hope that players who use Teeri will be able to maneuver around enemies to have the most refreshing experience of dealing damage to enemies in a straight line after finding a relatively safe environment to attack.

Passive: Fos’ Ring

When Teeri’s normal attack or skill hits multiple enemies 3 times, her subsequent normal attacks deal additional damage for 3s, and her next enhanced normal attack does not reduce her stored attacks for 3s.

Skill 1: Comet Strike

Teeri fires bullets at targets within range. Each bullet deals damage and marks the target, slowing them for 1s.

Skill 2: Heartseeker

Teeri increases her movement speed and gains an enhanced penetrating whirling normal attack (flies on for a short distance after hitting each unit). If the hit target has been marked by skill 1, the mark will be transmitted to the units hit by the enhanced normal attack.

Ultimate: Gentle Light of Redemption

Teeri throws her weapon in the target direction. When it hits a hero, it flies on for a short distance and then returns to the hero, revealing the hit unit visible and dealing damage. When the weapon returns, it will deal additional slash damage based on the number of enemy heroes hit during the first attack.

Hero Rebalancing

In the first round of Supremacy Blitz, the 20 heroes were quite well balanced as a whole, but a few of them still had relatively high/low win rates, so these old heroes may be adjusted accordingly this time.

Magic shields are now purple, and physical shields are now orange to differentiate them.

Differentiated the color and performance of different temporary enchantment effects to help Challengers identify enchantment effects quickly through their special effects: Omni Arms, Apocalypse, etc.
