Throughout the many iterations of Arena of Valor, we have always found it best to have a support hero in your 5-man team. Unfortunately, support heroes tend to fall behind in Gold and leveling, which causes them to lack the ideal support equipment and leave support players feeling like they had a bad experience at the end of a match. Given how crucial these heroes are, we’re tackling this head on so that support becomes an even more desirable role.

Support heroes typically play two roles: roaming the map to aid allies and protecting marksman in lane while they farm safely. With our next update, we will be introducing new equipment that suits both of these playstyles: Wind and Water sets. These items will upgrade from the Wind Stone and Water Stone, respectively.

The Wind Stone is designed for roamers, providing a Movement Speed buff and compensates for EXP and Gold loss from leaving lanes.

Attributes: Movement Speed +5%, +8% Mana regen

Wage (Unique Passive): Collects 5 Gold and EXP every 3 seconds if you have the least Gold or the lowest level on your team.

Essence of the Wind is used to protect your teammates with a shield.
