Aria token 0 Aria is an acrobatic master Assassin that (almost) perfectly dodges every attack and strikes back instantly. She is the most expensive hero in the game (in terms of resources). Her tokens are primary available in the Aether Shop and both of her Ascensions require exclusively rare Celestial Evos (Ember Sanguine token 0 Ember Sanguine is very similar to her in this regard).

Skill Breakdown

All of Aria token 0 Aria's attacks never miss. Her basic attack Provoking Poke Icon Provoking Poke always hits and provokes the target (Provoked Icon Provoked). She has a 100% chance (guarantee) to dodge every attack when the attacker is Off-Balance Icon Off-Balance or paralyzed (Paralysis Icon Paralysis) and the attacker has no Perfect Swing Icon Perfect Swing or a similar trait like Dwarven Resolve Icon Dwarven Resolve and Master of Combat Icon Master of Combat . Aria's attacks cannot be dodged, even if she is Dazed Icon Dazed or Off-Balance Icon Off-Balance. In conclusion

In conclusion, it can be said that Aria is overpowered against opponents who she can debuff and who cannot hit her because of that. While on the other hand Dwarfs and other heroes like the Honorbound Samurais Hansuke and Takumi can hit and beat her.

Aria in PvP

Beside the counter heroes mentioned above there are more ways to counter her in defenses:

Tokens

Since her debut Aria's tokens were sold in the Aether Shop exclusively. In 2018 she was several time featured in the Portal. But since the release of the New Portal Update (Feb-2019) she is "Aether Shop exclusive" again and the only hero in the Aether Shop left. Ember Sanguine token 0 Ember Sanguine and all other heroes moved to the portal.

Because of the incredible amount of excess tokens that are needed to buy some of her tokens it requires a several weeks (Forum: Finishing Aria) to raise her star and ascension level.

Notes and Tips

If Aria is teamed up with Shieldmaiden Astrid token 0 Shieldmaiden Astrid, Jin Lei token 0 Jin Lei, or Marrow token 0 Marrow whose special attacks can inflict off-balance and paralysis, Aria can dodge perfectly ("tank") any enemy who has no Perfect Swing Icon Perfect Swing . If she should "tank" just watch out for enemies that are immune to debuffs like Constructs.
