Synergies and Counters

Synergizes with:

She is at her best when something stops her and her enemy. Special Large, Strong Tanks are expected as they draw attention away from Valla and often offer their own form of crowd control for potential followers. If not, anything that can protect her is also to be expected. The special shielding effect is affected due to her limited health.

Countered by:

As a weak long-range Assassin, Valla has a natural tendency to struggle against other High Damage Assassins who are capable of making close range beyond her Vault’s range or sneaking in. With a bit of self-molting, make sure to stay as close to your Healer as possible against such Heroes and not make daring attempts to defeat your opponents.

Maps of Valla

As a comprehensive long-range assassin, Valla is neither particularly strong nor weak on many Maps. In general, it is better for her to come along on the road since she is relatively weak, which is not a problem for most Maps. However, it should be special mention that the Battlefield of Eternity, where her Hungering Arrow builds really shines.

Tips and Tricks

Valla
  • Hatred increases her base attacks power and increases her movement speed; Try attacking something at least every 5 seconds so your stack doesn’t fall off.
  • Hungering Arrow has a high Mana cost and will attack unwanted targets, such as Minions and Summons; Avoid using Skill unless it does useful damage.
  • Multishot is your primary wave clarification tool. Its wide range of effects also makes it great for checking hidden areas, uncovering stolen Heroes, and taking down opponents.
  • Vault can be used attack, as a closer distance, and defense, to create distance between you and your opponent and dodge Skills. Limit your use of Abilities in an aggressive manner because it makes you more vulnerable.
  • Strafe’s credibility increases as the opponent use up their crowd control; keeps track of their Cooldowns and keeps moving to minimize the chance of you being interrupted.
  • Rain of Vengeance is better used as a tracker or a self-molting tool than just to deal damage.
