Arena of Valor Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman Overview

Wonder Woman is an exceptional warrior hero who is potent at singling out priority targets, starting team fights, and supporting her team during clashes. Her kit is very versatile, allowing her to easily move around the battlefield and deal large amounts of damage to her foes.

Strengths

  • Excellent Initiator – Wonder Woman excels at taking the fight to her opponents. Her Lasso of Truth is a great tool for initiating, she then able to follow up with Sword and Shield and her normal attacks. When her team needs some breathing room, her ultimate, Bracelets of Submission, grants a shield to allies behind her while damaging and stunning enemies in front of her.
  • Good at Ganking – Lasso of Truth gives Wonder Woman some decent ganking potential, especially when she starts to roam around the map. Given its unique mechanic, she can either reel in a low health target or jump toward an enemy at full health before attacking.
  • Decent Damage – Wonder Woman’s abilities enable her to deal a large amount of damage on her enemies. Her Amazon Shield passive allows her to trade with single opponents and heal some HP. Sword and Shield, Lasso of Truth and Bracelets of Submission are excellent damaging abilities in team fights.

Weaknesses

  • Hero Mastery Required – Wonder Woman is a hero who is easy to use but difficult to master, especially at higher ranks. Players should learn the best times to use her Lasso of Truth to either engage or to yank an enemy away from their team. The same could be said about Bracelets of Submission as well, proper timing and positioning needed to maximize its potential in matches.
  • Jack of All Trades, Master of Few – Yes, it’s cliche, but it’s true in this case. Wonder Woman is a well rounded warrior but won’t have quite the same potential in either durability or damage. As she will often be up in the Slayer lane dueling other warriors, she can struggle at times keeping her lane.

Hero Basic Strategy

Laning Strategy

  • Try to go for the Slayer lane, Wonder Woman benefiting more from extra experience than gold. During the laning phase, trade damage with your opponent using normal attacks, hitting them with Amazon Shield to replenish lost HP. Make sure to bring in Sword and Shield as well to maximize your damage output.
  • After getting Lasso of Truth, cast it low health enemies to reel them toward you and prevent their escape. If they have more than 50% health when you lasso them, you will pull yourself towards them instead.
  • Once you’ve reached level 4, get Bracelets of Submission and look for team fights or ganks. Your team’s durability will dramatically increase when buffed by Wonder Woman’s ultimate, so remember to position yourself properly.

Leveling Progression

  • Start with Sword and Shield and focus on leveling it to max first. It is Wonder Woman’s main damaging tool and additionally offers a bit of protection as well.
  • Lasso of Truth is your lowest priority. While a useful engagement tool, it has less value than anything else in Wonder Woman’s kit.
  • Finally, get Bracelets of Submission whenever you can. Wonder Woman’s ultimate is invaluable, especially during team fights.

If your opponent tries to disengage, reel them back with Lasso of Truth and further bludgeon them into submission. Bracelets of Submission can either be used to prevent an escape or to
  • Team Battle: Cast Lasso of Truth on the enemy team’s squishiest hero. Once you pull yourself onto them, cast Sword and Shield on the enemy carries. Use your normal attacks to proc Amazon Shield and thereby recover some lost HP. Should things get dicey, cast Bracelets of Submission with your teammates behind you and the opponents in front of you to maximize the skill’s utility.
  • Escaping Team Fights: Both Sword and Shield and Lasso of Truth can be used to escape unwanted or failing clashes. When using Sword and Shield as an escape tool, simply cast it away from the battle. Getting close to terrain will let you pass through it as well.

More Wonder Woman Item Builds

Hero Arcana

  • Onslaught, Assassinate, and Skewer are good Arcana on Wonder Woman as they empower all of her abilities and normal attacks, increasing her damage potential.
  • She can also run a defensive arcana set, such as Indomitable, Benevolence, and Valiance to help her soak more damage for her team, especially when she initiates team fights.

Hero Counters

Arena of Valor Tank Tank

Wonder Woman fairs well against tanks so long as she avoids getting disabled. Given that her kit allows her to deal damage in short bursts and move more quickly than lumbering tanks, she can outmaneuver and punish them with her abilities and basic attacks.

Arena of Valor Warrior Warrior

When it comes to dealing with warriors, Wonder Woman’s success will depend on how well she can outplay them. Thanks to her Amazon Shield and Sword and Shield abilities, she is more than able to poke and harass them to death. Avoid long battles with other warriors, however. Many have damage that is more consistent than Wonder Woman’s bursts.

Arena of Valor Assassin Assassin

Wonder Woman does okay against assassins. Most assassins rely on burst damage, which Wonder Woman should be able to withstand after getting some durability items. The dashes and movement her kit allows will keep them from outmaneuvering her and, as a result, less effective at killing her.

Arena of Valor Mage Mage

Wonder Woman generally struggles against ranged heroes. A mage’s damaging abilities can be a big nuisance to her, able to burst away her health or zone her away from fights. Moreover, most mages tend to bombard their enemies from a safe distance. If Wonder Woman cannot get close to them, she’ll have a very hard time.

Arena of Valor Marksman Marksman

In the same vein, Wonder Woman has a hard time dealing with marksmen since they can harass her with ranged attacks and punish her if she decides to dive. However, after getting her defensive items, she can deal with these ranged heroes effectively.

Arena of Valor Support Support

Wonder Woman does pretty well against support heroes in one on one settings. However, support heroes tend to give Wonder Woman some trouble during team fights with their defensive and control abilities.
