Valen Pros & Cons


  • AoE Damage: His ultimate provides decent AoE damage and allows him to target specific areas.
  • Temporary Invincibility: He is immune to damage while using his ultimate, aiding in his survival.
  • Attack Buff: "Thunder Swordwork" gives him a self-buff with Invigoration, increasing his damage output.
  • Forked Lightning: During Invigoration, "Unseen Blade" provides additional damage to nearby enemies.
  • Potential for Permanent Buffs: His Exclusive Skill allows him to permanently stack Attack buffs as long as he maintains Invigoration.
  • Stun with Enhancement: His Enhancement adds a stun to "Fury Thunder Strike."


  • Cooldown Reliance: Several of his key abilities, including his AoE damage and forked lightning, rely on his ultimate's cooldown and maintaining Invigoration.
  • Somewhat Fragile: While he has temporary invincibility, Valen doesn't have inherent tankiness.
  • Conditional Damage: A portion of his damage depends on maintaining Invigoration by using his ultimate.
