Vainglory Tips and Tricks
Beat everyone at their own game with this heaping helping of tips and tricks.
Vainglory is a hot new MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game for mobile. Many of those that stick to mobile gaming only may not be familiar with the MOBA genre, but these tips and tricks will help lead you to victory.
-Players control a hero in a 3-vs-3 battle. To win, you must shatter a crystal in your enemy team's base opposite on the map from your own base.
-Players travel towards their enemy's base via "lanes" which are filled with enemy minions and turrets.
-You also have the advantage of having turrets and minions to defend the paths to your base.
-Turrets are powerful and able to kill your hero in one shot, their weakness though is that they will ALWAYS attack your minions before you. To bring down turrets effectively, make sure you travel with your back of minions.
-Heroes are able to gain power by levelling up and buying items. Increasing your power as quickly as possible is key to victory.
-If you are hurt, don't hesitate to go back to your base. The button on the lower right of the screen will teleport you back to your home base. However, it does require five seconds of uninterrupted cast time which can be cancelled by any other action such as moving, getting attacked, or attacking others.
Gold and Items:
-Players earn gold at the rate of one gold per second automatically. Killing enemies is the main way of acquiring gold with the amount of gold dropped increasing according to enemy difficulty.
-Items are used to bolster your heroes strength from movement speed, health, and armor, to ability cool down, energy, and weapon power. Each of your heroes stats can be boosted by items.
We hope this small guide helped you. The main thing players can do to succeed in Vainglory and any other MOBA is practice, practice, practice. Being able to recall where you're going and what items bolster what stats lets you focus on the action ahead and saves valuable time.
