How to play Butterfly in Arena of Valor: build, arcana and tips

Butterfly is known as the Whisper of Death in Arena of Valor - and with good reason. The assassin is one of the players' favorite choices and is considered one of the most powerful heroines in the game, thanks to her lethal combination of agility and expertise in the massacre of the enemy team. Now get to know the essentials to detonate with Butterfly in Arena of Valor battles !

Know the lethal abilities of the heroine

 Passive: Assassin

When Butterfly kills or grants assistance, the cooldown of all her abilities is reset and 15% of her lost Life is restored.


The assassin turns her sword against all opponents around her, dealing 200 (+115) Physical Damage and reducing the Movement Speed of enemies hit by 50% for 2 seconds.

 Cutting Shot

The heroine throws her blade at all enemies in her path, dealing 390 Physical Damage (+221). Butterfly's Attack Speed is increased by 50% for 3 seconds.

 Ultimate: Sneaky Stab

Butterfly appears through the enemy with the highest Health, with priority for opposing heroes over minions or monsters. In this appearance, the assassin stabs the target mercilessly, inflicting 525 (+238) physical damage. In the meantime, Butterfly's damage reduction is increased by 60% and Movement Speed is increased by 50% for 1 second.

Tips to do well with Butterfly

  • Butterfly can be absolutely destructive in killing enemies, but she must not start team combat. Leave this job to your team's tanks and enter when the battle is halfway through, focusing your attention on enemy Supporters and Snipers. It is worth remembering that this murderer is fragile in terms of the Constitution and you need to take this into account to get the most out of her.
  • This is a heroine who can do immense damage in duels, it is important that you spend your time selecting and eliminating isolated enemies.
  • At the beginning of the game, use Butterfly to shoot down monsters in the jungle to gain experience and gold. If you are a jungler in the beginning, you will quickly gain dominance in the early game phase - invest all your buffs in ganking the enemy team.
  • If you are surrounded by enemies and need to escape quickly, use your ultimate to position yourself behind the opposing hero with the lowest Health level. Eliminate the enemy and escape while still alive.

Leveling your skill build the right way

Always give priority to the ultimate (Sneaky Stab) whenever possible. With a low cooldown, coupled with your bonuses, this skill makes Butterfly truly dangerous. When the battle begins, choose your second skill to reveal. With Slash Shot, the assassin quickly becomes more ready to be the jungler her team needs. The last skill on his priority list is the first, Tourbillon, which does not maximize heroin.
