About Skills



In Monkey King: Arena of Heroes, characters that you deploy on your team can have benefits when they have members of the same faction. Your characters have neutral attacks, special attacks, as well as linked skills that can only activate if you have specific hero combinations together. You can check more about linked skills by looking at the hero handbook in the game’s menu. Skills are used automatically in battle, therefore your main goal is to have a good team composition, and let the battle commence.



Even if each Hero has their specific roles such as DPS, Control, Support, Healing, and Tank, their individual skills will still determine their overall gameplay. Learning about their skills in battle will help you understand which team combinations will make them stronger. Aside from leveling up, you will still need other methods to become stronger such as providing them with breakthroughs and armaments.
