In Arena of Valor S17, the marksman position is one of the most important. As marksmen deal the majority of the team’s physical damage, this position is always prioritized in the game.
Marksmen can help your team win in a variety of combat situations. Players, on the other hand, have favored assassin and warrior roles in Season 17. Marksman are being overshadowed, and their threatening presence against opponents is dwindling.
So, in Season 17, which marksman are still viable? In AOV, there are five top tier marksman heroes you can use to climb the ranks.
Hayate has consistently been the top marksman in both ranked and professional tournaments over time. Hayate is a good choice because of his ninja abilities. After a well executed combo, Hayate’s critical amount of damage can put any opponent back to sleep.
Hayate’s passive, Blood of the Dragon, has been significantly nerfed, losing a lot of its true damage. However, his critical damage remains, making him a fairly reliable hero. Hayate is still many people’s favorite marksman in Arena of Valor S17.
Despite the fact that an important item, Bow of Slaughter, was nerfed, Capheny is still a top marksman in the current Arena meta.
When given the proper equipment, Capheny has a good damage reduction ability, can kite, and can carry her teammates.
Capheny can also experiment with a variety of formations and strategies thanks to her transformative moves. Players must understand how to position themselves properly this season, and they must be able to farm hard in order to purchase the equipment needed and further strengthen Capheny.
Laville | Arena of Valor
Laville, like Capheny, is a marksman who heavily relies on equipment that he’s using in battle.
Laville’s ultimate ability, Double Trouble, is the source of his power, which makes many enemies tremble. This ability allows him to engage in long range combat and stun enemies. A accurate Double Trouble from Laville poses a major threat for the enemy team because the longer the distance, the longer the stun.
The current Arena of Valor meta revolves around continuous combat, which is why most players prefer marksman heroes with high damage output. Violet is an excellent choice for this type of gameplay. This girl has the ability to poke opponents with a burst of critical damage on a regular basis.
Violet, on the other hand, shines brightest in the late game and requires excellent gear to maximize her damage in combat situations. Violet players must be aware of their surroundings and exercise extra caution in teamfights.
Their teammates should always be on their backs.
Wisp | Arena of Valor
Wisp continues to be a formidable opponent ranked games, with a win rate of over 50%.
Among AOV’s marksman heroes, she has good mobility, a high damage output, and the best wide-angle attack set. Wisp can shoot down the enemy team and end battles quickly with only two critical items and one armor-piercing item.
