The Basics of Area of Effect in League of Legends
Area of Effect is a nifty term that refers to the area in which an attack or spell is aimed. AoE can be used to affect a visible area or an invisible one. Some spells may have Area of Effect in their name, but the main purpose of the ability is to target a large number of enemies at once.
AoE is an important part of role playing games. It can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how it is used. There are different types of Area of Effect, including: Linear, Point-blank, Hybrid and Location-Targeted. Depending on the spell or ability, a single AoE can hurt allies or enemy champions. If you’re just learning to play League of Legends, it’s helpful to know the basics.
The best part of Area of Effect is that it can be applied to a wide range of abilities. Many of these abilities are projectile-based and can hit multiple targets, while others are more focused on causing damage to a small group of enemies. Even throwing a grenade or casting a bloodthirsty spell can do the trick.
One of the most notable AoE spells in League of Legends is the Herald of Thunder. While attached to an enemy, this magic spell adds a nice bit of lightning damage to an attack. However, it’s not for everyone. Specifically, it’s designed to apply to enemies who die due to traps, totems or other spells. For instance, it does not apply to minions or other non-enemy enemies.
Another notable example of a magical item is the Wrath gemstone. This gem can be obtained by assisting the Witch in the library of Act III. As an added bonus, the quality of the gem is pretty high. At 20% quality, it grants 40% of the area of effect a regular gemstone can. Of course, a Gemcutter’s Gem is required to get the most out of this item.
Although this item is a bit on the heavy side, its ability to grant a larger area of effect can be worth it. To determine how much the item will increase your Area of Effect, simply calculate the Average Hit and Casts per Second you’re using, and multiply the two by five. That should give you a pretty accurate idea of how much the item will boost your stats.
Finally, there’s the Spell Echo. This gem makes the most of a linked spell gem, allowing you to repeat the effects of the spell after the initial cast. You can also get a similar effect by linking multiple spell gems together.
AoE has been around for a long time, but the game’s mechanics and technologies have improved dramatically in recent years. In particular, the concept of Area of Effect has become more complex. By adding additional components, players are able to create a variety of spells that are more effective at doing their job. They can also choose to invest in a Support Gem, which is a powerful new way to boost the effects of Area of Effect spells.
