Another one of the types of Arena of Valor heroes is the assassin type. Arena of Valor Assassins are key to eliminating high priority squishy targets such as marksmen or mages. Their biggest weakness is armor or any type of heavy resistance such as tanks, however, if played correctly they will rarely get into that kind of fight. They are very often vulnerable to crowd control effects since they’re quite squishy themselves and once they get pinned down they’ll most likely fall quickly. Assassins work well with crowd control heroes on their team since crowd control can buy them time to execute their combo. Yes and, since assassins often rely on quick bursts they usually also rely on their combos.
Veres is a versatile assassin with an engage and assassinate kit. She uses her blades to rip through single targets with ease and her second ability gives her time for snappy assassinations.
Florentino is a charismatic but deadly hero that uses his sword to cut away enemies in swift combos. His Ultimate Gentleman’s Duel allows him to leap onto a target and deliver a fatal combo.
Quillen is a stealthy assassin with a knack for attacking enemies from behind. His ultimate renders him invisible which makes it easier for him to get a 100% bonus on his next attack from behind an enemy.
Riktor is a Fighter/Assassin hero. His Second ability blocks incoming attacks which gives him some durability, however, his ultimate can completely pinpoint a target and create a deadly duel between him and the target.
Murad is a space-time bending assassin that uses his thorns and stacks to unleash devastating blows to targets. His Ultimate Temporal Turbulence renders him invincible for a short period of time.
Batman in Aov is a chasing assassin. His first ability is his main source of damage while the rest are utilities. He can become invisible for 30 seconds at a time so it’s very hard to predict him.
Butterfly is a true unstoppable assassin. Her passive resets her cooldowns after a takedown and her ultimate Backstab allows her to blatantly leap onto an enemy with the lowest HP (in range).
Kriknak is a basic attack based assassin and his playstyle is mainly adapting to his passive which offers bonus damage after he marks an enemy with any of his abilities.
A true jungler assassin. He has a lot of knock ups in his kit so ganking enemy lanes is really what he excels at. Wukong is an assassin/fighter hero. He’s great at punishing badly positioned enemies with his ultimate’s knockups and he also has an ability to become invisible briefly while gaining movement speed which makes him hard to predict in teamfights.
