- Arena (PvP) Team Building Guide: Hero Selection -

Labeling Guide:
   - Tier 1 Arena Heroes = The Hot Picks! Popular Heroes in the Arena that also recorded 20% or more overall usage, but ratings are also affected by usefulness, competitiveness, top recommendations and more. It's not necessary to group them all up, find a team that works together including Tier 2, especially for Epic Arena.
   - Tier 2 Arena Heroes = Heroes that are decent in the arena with around 7% overall usage. Still viable but requires specific hero synergies. Situational and debatable heroes will be categorized here too.
   - Tier 3 Arena Heroes = Becomes a rarely used hero in the arena (around 1% overall usage), still ok though for certain hero combos, or if you don't have any better choice at the moment, especially early game.
   - "Black Texted" Ratings: No Tier yet or still under review, suggestions are welcome ^^.

   - Lvl 1+ (Before Purple) = Lvl 1+, until around Lvl 52 (White to Blue +2).
   - Lvl 50+ (After Purple) = Around Lvl 53 to 71 (P+0 to P+1).
   - Lvl 70+ (Purple +2) = Lvl 72 to 84 (P+2 to Before Orange).
   - Lvl 85+ (Still P+4 or Orange) = Around Lvl 85+ to Lvl 90, but with no Awakening Skill yet.
   - Lvl 90+ (Orange+ with Awakening Skill!) = Lvl 90 heroes with Awakening Skill. Note that heroes without Awakening skill at the moment will be labeled as "None".
______________________________

Other Notes!
   - To newbies, please keep in mind that level grinding will take longer as you go, so it's better to focus on heroes on your current level, than prematurely using  Lvl 90 Tier 1 heroes early game (makes your progress difficult). Farming hero soul stones for later is always a good idea though, go for it.

______________________________

Brief Change-Logs and Info
   - I will no longer include hero descriptions to make this guide uncluttered, but I will provide brief change-logs and info here. Suggestions are welcome to help polish this guide ^^
   - Note: New heroes will take time to upgrade and max, and players will probably start to test them out, once they include them to the redeemable shops.

   - Blazer: (Up to Lvl 1+ and Lvl 50+) since Blake isn't dominant here yet.
   - Brody: (Up to 70+ and 85+), increased popularity.
   - NEW! Added new hero Frostik under Back Line support for now.
   - NEW! Added Drakaina, Viktor and Phantom.
   - NEW! Added November Heroes
