Arena of Valor continues to attract players from all around the world as it introduces new content and new heroes. Today, we have a new hero that has arrived to North America & South America by the name of Kriknak. Kriknak, The Scarabim, belongs to the Assassin Class and is described to be a ”messenger of death.”
This creature empowers himself by absorbing power from the essence of rotten souls and is usually found near tombs. Kriknak takes orders from Searcy the Banshee and remains strongly loyal to its master. On the battlefield, he starts with an Attack Damage of 173 and Max HP of 3239 at Level 1. With such significant power, it is important to take advantage of its starting powers in a game. Kriknak’s abilities are as follows:
- Bite: When Kriknak’s ability hits an enemy, the next normal attack deals an additional physical damage.
- Terrifying Plague: Kriknak summons a plague of larvae that deals physical damage and inflicts the target with Mark of Horror. When Kriknak attacks marked enemies, they take additional magic damage equal to a percentage of maximum HP, the cooldown of this ability is reduced by 3 seconds, and restores Kriknak’s mana.
- Horn Rush: Kriknak lunges forward with his enormous horns, dealing physical damage to enemies in his path. Every enemy hero hit restores HP for Kriknak.
- Drone Drop: Kriknak takes to the skies, significantly increasing his movement speed for a brief period. When casting this ability while airborne, Kriknak attacks the target area and deals physical damage to the enemies in the area, reducing their movement speed.
We can see that this hero has a powerful ultimate as it increases his speed while reducing enemy movement speed. This ability would be best used to surprise unaware enemies and take them out alongside your ally heroes since it will make it almost impossible for them to escape your grasp. Therefore, levelling up to reach your ultimate as soon as possible would be a good start.
The build you want on Kriknak needs to increase his movement speed and attack damage as he is created to meet these standards. If this hero is not available to be selected for free then you can now purchase him for 999 Vouchers or 13,888 Gold. You can learn more about Kriknak from the Hero Spotlight below.
