Big changes have been introduced to Arena of Valor! The recent beta 37 update from TiMi Studio has made sweeping adjustments to a variety of aspects in the game - both big and small - and has introduced several new features that will vastly improve the overall gaming experience in Arena of Valor.

We're excited to talk about these changes, so let's get going!

Arena of Valor Beta 37 - Release Date

The beta 37 update was released on July 5, 2022 at 2:30 am (UTC+0). That means that the update is currently live in Arena of Valor. If you were playing at that time, you would've noticed that you were unable to log in to your account or play Arena of Valor.

Update Summary

As previously mentioned, the beta 37 update for Arena of Valor is a massive one. In this article, we're going to focus on the important aspects such as Slayer improvements, Wildlings changes, the new Career System, the new Double Ultimate game mode, Hero Sets, Enchantment Special Effect changes, and bug fixes.

Let's take a closer look at them!

Slayer Improvements

The devs have improve the mechanics related to summoned Slayer creatures. These are:

  • Young Slayer: The attacker will now summon one wave of Slayer Vanguards instead of dealing additional damage to towers.
  • Adult Slayer: The attacker will summon two waves of Slayer Vanguards. Also, replacing the previous mechanic whereby Adult Slayers were summoned at the summoner's location is a new mechanic where the summoned Slayer will appear at the Summoner's base and choose the lane closest to the summoner to attack the enemy.
  • Infinite Slayer: After an Infinite Slayer is killed, the attacker will summon three waves of Slayer Vanguards. Killing an enemy hero grants a one-time shield that has 40% of max HP as well as the Holy Dragon's effect that deals damage equal to 5% of the target's max HP to the enemy heroes intermittently. Unfortunately, Armor, Magic Defense, and HP Regen bonus for all allies previously available has been removed.

Wildlings Changes

After introducing many unsuccessful changes to the Spirit Sentinel, the devs have realized that it's best to replace it with a new creature: the Owlgriff. These are their stats:

  • Base HP: 4000.
  • Base Attack Damage: 200
  • Base Armor and Magic Defense: 0
  • Base Kill Rewards: 35 Gold, 100 EXP, Killer recovers 5% of max HP

An additional change was introduce to Jungle passive stacks: When a hero kills a wildling, allied heroes within 10 meters will also accumulate passive stacks of jungling equipment.

New Career System

The Career System is a feature that incorporates multiple goal-related mechanics to make it easier for players to focus on quests and claim rewards. With the new update, we will see improvements brought to the Career System.

Daily Quests

Players can compete in Standard or Ranked mode to complete the specified quests receive quest rewards as well as to accumulate Activity. Players can claim Activity Chests when reaching certain Activity targets.

Season Challenge

The entrance of the Season Challenge has been migrated to the Career system and retained the original entrance on the Ranked screen.

Skill Demonstration Improvements

Targeted improvements have been made to the skill demonstration system for transforming heroes or heroes who currently have multiple forms. This will allow the demonstration to be more consistent with their actual combat performance. The affected heroes include:

  • Liliana
  • Tachi
  • Thorne
  • Yena
  • Laville
  • Cresht
  • Aya
  • Volkath
  • Superman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Dirak
  • Iggy
  • Sinestrea
  • Rouie
  • D'Arcy
  • Enzo
  • Y'bneth
  • Lorion
  • Yan

New Mode: Double Ultimate

We have a new game mode coming to Arena of Valor: Double Ultimate! It's basically a classic 5v5 map with new rules that are adopted specifically for this mode. The game description of the Double Ultimate mode is:

A wave of Ultimate power sweeps across Athanor once every year, and the heroes of the land have started to study this power to harness it and use it in battle.

This "power" has granted every Hero an extra ultimate! This extra ultimate has the same stats, usage, and cooldown logic as a normal ultimate does. Players will be able to choose this extra ultimate only after all players have selected their hero.

Besides this, there are other rules:

  • When selecting an extra ultimate, each player will be randomly assigned three extra ultimates (excludes the ultimates already selected by ally players).
  • Players will have twenty seconds to choose one ultimate out of these three extra ultimates.
  • The extra ultimate starts off at Level 1 and has no skill cost. The extra ultimate automatically levels up when the player reaches Level 8 and Level 12.

Hero Sets

Heroes' equipment, Enchantments, Arcana, and Talents will now be presented as sets in the beta 37 update. It is now possible to apply system-recommended sets, popular sets, or sets used by pros with one tap.

There are a total of five custom set loadouts. The first three will be automatically unlocked, while the fourth and the fifth set are locked and can be unlocked by purchasing the Codex. If you already have loadout four and five unlocked prior to this update, they will remain unlocked.

Enchantment Special Effects Improvements

TiMi Studio wanted to provide players with a better combat experience by improving the special effects of Enchantments. These include:

  • Explosive Shield.
  • Forest Wanderer.
  • Enhanced Restore.
  • Luxuriant Tantrum.
  • Evanescence.

Bug Fixes
