Tips & Tricks
Valir is an immobile mage with high magic damage potential, meaning he is susceptible to being jumped on by more mobile targets, especially assassins.
While his Searing Torrent offers him some protection against being jumped on, it is important for him to position well in order to avoid dying and be most effective at dishing out damage to enemies.
During the early game, Valir excels at poking down enemies via his Burst Fireballs, and his ultimate ability helps him maintain power into the team fighting stage, boosting his damage and enabling him to shred targets big and small.
Because Valir can store multiple fireballs and store more upon hitting enemies, he can burn through mana quickly, making Demon Shoes a smart choice for sustaining mana and being able to poke enemies more frequently.
An early Ice Queen Wand can help Valir both offensively and defensively, giving him a nice boost of magic power along with enabling his skills to slow enemies — perfect for engaging with fireballs or stopping enemies from pursuing him after using Searing Torrent.
Glowing Wand pairs nicely with Valir’s passive to increase his damage output, especially against tank characters, giving him even more max health based damage. This helps Valir to stay in the backlines and help burn through tanks who may not have been smart enough to build magic resistance.
Items like Genius Wand and Holy Crystal enable Valir to remain an even bigger threat in the late game, pairing high damage boosts with his already scaling passive.
While Valir’s passive enables him to stay relevant no matter how beefy his enemies get, it also provides him with nice crowd control. Stacking three rounds of Ashing on an opponent will stun the enemy, making it even easier for Valir or an assisting teammate to finish them off.
Valir’s passive stun is a powerful threat to the enemy team, and you should use it as such. Ashing lasts for four seconds and needs to stack three times for the stun, forcing enemies to play safely, especially after two stacks have been applied. Use this to poke and harass enemies if you can’t all-in them, forcing them to lose gold and experience in the process.
Burst Fireballs can reset if an enemy is the first thing hit by them. Try to position so that this is the case, allowing you to more easily store fireballs as well as stack Ashing on enemies.
Searing Torrent is a defensive move that pushes enemies back, great for when your team needs to retreat and slowing the enemy pursuit. Try not to use Searing Torrent recklessly, having it available when needed.
Valir’s ultimate, Vengeance Flame, clears all crowd control effects and hastens him while enhancing his other skills. This is perfect for when team fights begin breaking out, enabling Valir to help his team pump out more damage.The cleansing effect is valuable and can save your life, but if the enemies have used the majority of their crowd control moves, don’t hesitate to use Vengeance Flames offensively, initiating with your teammates and lighting enemies up!
As a mage, Valir uses the Mage Emblem page to boost his magic power. Flow increases Magic Power, with Observation giving added magic penetration, helping Valir burst through enemy defenses.
Mystery Shop is always a viable talent for mages, helping them get items faster. Magic Worship can also work nicely for Valir, burning enemies when he goes in to burst them down rapidly.
