Arena of Valor Mail of Pain
Type Arena of Valor Defense Items Defense
Price Arena of Valor Gold Coin 1940
Tier 2
Armor +300
Max HP +1200
Gold Efficiency 98.96% (not including Riposte passive)
Unique Passive(s) Riposte: 15% of the physical damage taken is deflected to the enemy as magic damage (calculation is based on damage before damage reduction).
This item is typically situational since its effectiveness depends on the enemy team composition. Its Riposte effect is a good deterrent when facing a team that deals mostly physical damage and moreso against heroes that rely on their basic attacks. Opposing marksmen and assassins need to be careful whenever they attack heroes equipped with Mail of Pain because having a portion of their damage redirected to them will do a lot to their limited HP pools.
Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Most tanks, warriors, and some support heroes can make good use of this item, especially when the enemy team is comprised mostly of attack damage heroes. It can additionally help counter particularly fed marksmen.
