Mage players in Arena of Valor will be happy to know that their favorite characters are getting some much-needed buffs that will make them more effective during the early to mid-stages of the game.
Following a server update on May 22, some balance adjustments have been made to spell casters that will shift their focus away from being late-game forces of destruction and allow them to actively participate in the crucial team fights during the middle stage of the game.
According to Tencent, the tweaks made will affect the hero’s growth rate by making them not rely too much on AP buffs. This would also make their presence felt earlier in the game while maintaining their late-game team fight prowess.
With that being said, here is a comprehensive list of the various heroes and their abilities that have been buffed thanks to the recent update.
