Safe Build for Quick Match Top

With all new players there will be a lot of suicide maniacs running around. You should keep you distance so you can learn how game mechanic works. So lets dive in:

This build focus on Multishot and give you plenty of opportunities to run away with your Caltrops and teleport. You can get familiar with talents and have a lot of fun.

Multishot help you kill small minions and your mana won't run so fast. In other words you don't have to hold your power and think about it. That being said. Even if your life is near 100% remember to go to the fountain when your mana goes under 40% and there are no hunt for your life.

6 and 7 talent. As you get familiar with Valla try to use Blood for Blood and teleport. These are in additional keys ("1" and "2") so get used to use it before your life drops too much. Remember when you die enemy gains crazy amount of exp points and they soon be unstopable! So please do not be another suicide maniac with death wish. You can lose fort or gate and you can gain your exp points by killing minions, taking camps but when you die (and have like 5 or 6 deaths) your team will lose because of you. Yep. That is right. You can't win fights you vs 2 or more enemy heroes. If you go for battle 4 vs 5 do not blame your 5 team mate. This is all on you. You shouldn't engage in team fight in the first place. You can have one player who literally start to play this very day so you should go for objectives (minions, camps) help another player who have only 1 enemy and then go for temples or specific map objectives.

Remember to have fun when others are still learning how this game works.

Kill Them All (Hero League) Top

Congrats! You become the greatest assassin! This is build for basic attacks. Yes this is a game changer (from 3 talent up!!) in any team fights. You can win any 1 vs 1 or even 1 vs 2 fights. You can take down enemy boss by yourself. This build will help you win 1 vs 1 even if enemy team have higher level.

One IMPORTANT thing to remember when you attack enemy player. Start with your power (If you have more than half of your mana) and then focus on basic attacks, when your Hatred Stack reaches 9 (near your hero portrait is circle that rise to 10 with each basic attack) use "Searing Attack" (button "1"). At this point you have the quickest basic attacks. Basic attack bring 50% more damage! And they heal you! STAY IN ONE PLACE. CONSTANTLY ATTACK enemy with basic attack. Why it is a game changer? Your health will drop by half until you reach 9 stack of Hatred. Do not worry. Keep attacking with basic attacks, enemy won't run when he sees that your health is dropping, and then activate your talent (Searing Attack), your health will stand still and enemy will quickly start dying. Believe in this build and do not run when your health drop by half. When you activate your booster talent you'll live.

5 TALENT: First 3 talents are crucial in this build. After your hero reaches 5 talent build depends. If your team have higher level and you have great team fights you go for "Giant Killer". If you have lower level and your team can't focus just go for "Tempered by Discipline". As title says for this to work you need to constantly attacking. In Spiders Queen or Dragon Shire map (where pushing go like crazy) it is pretty easy to stay behind your wall and attack enemy in safe position. Even if someone is attacking you at this point you will heal like crazy and do not need any support.

6 TALENT: I recommend you always go "Blood for Blood" even if it heals you do not necessary use it for healing. When your enemy heals drop to 3 - 2 bars (depending on hero class) finish him by stealing his life. Range of this attack is pretty small so use it when he start to run away with low health. He can't escape!

7 TALENT: You can go for even quicker attack or you can go for teleport! You can use teleport (very carefully) to chase enemy and finish him or as a last resort to run away and don't get killed.

Max dmg for Hero Legue Top

Hunt them and kill them all. This is great build if you like to use a lot of your hero abilities. But be careful with mana! This build will drain your mana a lot so if the other team is pushing like crazy you need to use your basic abilities for minions. You won't be healing yourself so remember to run away with your life.

This is build specific for good teams. You know that support have your back, tank is initiating fights and all member know what they are doing. Your team can go back and you have no problem with controlling the map. You can easily finish enemy hero with your Hungering Arrow. Remember to shield yourself at back line - you have not so much health and you can't regenerate!

Have fun assassins.

Hero Talent. Top

Strafe is Safe.


You activate it and worry only about keeping enemy in range. This is great if enemy always get away with 1 bar of life and you can't finish them. You can use your jump while your hero power is working. So they won't get away. It is safe and simple so you will have your fun.

Rain of Vengeance


is for players that know Valla well, know dynamic of enemy and know when to use it. It instantly stop enemy on small place. This is great for taking Temples or in Dragon Shire or on Cursed Hollow when you know that your enemy will stay in one place. If you know how to run using Caltropes mines that your enemy will stand on them you'll probably can handle Rain of Vengeance.

Baisic Do and Don't for NEW PLAYERS Top

DO!



YES you are assassin. You still need to clear the lanes (kill all small minions). You shouldn't chase enemy unless you see your minions before your hero. Even if there is a clear path to the core. You wont destroy core without your minions. Yes core can defend itself and it will kill you. When your minions are near gate or fort you can go for another lane or deal some damage to the buildings.

Yes you are assassin so as long as there is team fights with equal number of player go help your team. Look at the map. On every lane should be at least one hero (at least until you reach 10 lvl). As assassin you should change lanes and help your team mates. So change lanes if you killed all enemy minions, there are no enemy hero near you and some teammates need help. Help them and go back to your lane if it is empty. Killing minions give you additional EXP.

Yes you are assassin what does it mean? You attack behind tank (warrior class) they have much more health than you and they will be your human shield. When is it ok to go before tank? When his life goes under 3-4 bars and he try to run away. You can shield him when you are near gate or equal safe place. Easy enough? Well no. New players can turn back when they see you wait ("w8") for them to pass you. If that happens let him die. Easy! ;) Better lose 1 player than 2 and give enemy so much more EXP. Run away, go heal and write to them on chat that you were helping them to run not to stay when they have 1 bar of life.

DON'T



Yes, yes, yes, you are assassin and we get it. But you have like no health at all and your damage won't cut it. So please do not run after 2 enemies by yourself. Almost every hero can heal over time. They will kill you. And they will get crazy amount of EXP. You need to look at your team LEVEL. If enemy have higher number you can't win in 1 vs 1. Just can't. So go kill minions until you match LVL.

After 10 lvl don't go alone. This is team game more than ever. You deal more damage so your team need you even if you have 2 more assassins. You can't win alone so invite other players to your game and learn from better than you.

Do not spam. Be polite. Even if some players go through Training on Cooperative - Quick Match and Hero League are different. If you want to win (I know you do). Just write what goes wrong. Other players don't need to be as good as you. And you are not better than them. So before you write "noob" (yes when I see this word I know that with alfa and omega in our team we'll lose) try to think and analyze why others do what they do. They could play it safe. Even in group you can lose. Group is not 5 players in one spot. Group is when players stick together shield another hero with theirs hero. If you are close and one player rush on 5 players no group will cut it.
