The tutorial for Arena of Valor tells you everything you need to know about playing the game. AoV is a MOBA, and the primary objective for most of its modes is to work your way through enemy towers, defeating A.I. controlled grunts and human opponents alike, until you and your team take down the opposition’s core. Players start each round at square one, leveling up their character by defeating foes, taking down towers, or eliminating any of the monsters found off the main path of battle. As players level up and gain money, they’ll unlock and strengthen special moves, and buy armor, accessories, and attack buffs, all in real time.
