Honor of Kings Angela Guide: Best Arcana, Build and Gameplay Tips

Knowledge is power!

Angela is one of the most used and reliable mages in the Honor of Kings generally played in mid-lane. You can get it for free just after installing the game, but never underestimate her because it’s free. She has some unique qualities, which make her a must-pick mage in early rank-up. Angela is from Eventide Cathedral, and Lord Arthur is her commander. In this Honor of Kings guide, we will take a look at the skills, and best builds, including tips and tricks to dominate every game with Angela.

We have previously discussed how to master playing with other Honor of Kings heroes like Diaochan, Private Ear, Solarus, Lady Sun, Musashi, Mirrorblade, Eternal Sage, Peacekeeper, Arthur, and Menki. So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Angela.

Angela has a good set of crowd control, burst damage, and long-range attack skills, and based on her skill-casting abilities, we can rate her as an A-tier pick with a very easy difficulty level. Once you know the basics, you can easily finish any enemy with one shot, so without further ado, let’s just jump into the Hero’s Gorge to understand the mechanics.

Skill Analysis

Angela is a hero that has four abilities which are one passive and three active. In this Angela guide, let’s see what are her abilities in Honor of Kings, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of her.

Passive – Flame Incantation (Damage)


This passive basically helps Angela deal overtime damage. Each time she deals damage with her active skills, it leaves a burning mark on the enemy (capped at 10 stacks). Each mark compels enemies to take an extra 11 (+2% magical attack) amount of magical damage for the next 3 seconds from her 3 active skills.

Skill 1 – Scorching Barrage (Damage)

CD – 6 seconds
Mana Cost – 50


Upon casting, Angela throws 5 fireballs at the designated location while dealing 350 (+30% Magical Attack) /390/430/470/510/550 amount of magical damage to enemies and non-hero units both. but when multiple fireballs hit the same target, the subsequent fireball only deals 30% damage.

Skill 2 – Chaos Cinders (Damage, Crowd Control)

CD – 10/9.6/9.2/8.8/8.4/8 seconds
Mana Cost – 60


Upon casting, Angela launches a flame vortex in the designated direction, which stuns the first enemy for the next 1 second while dealing 130 (+17% Magical Attack) amounts of magical damage to nearby enemies for every 0.5 second and reduces their movement speed for the next 1.5 seconds by 50%. This skill is very useful for Angela to control the crowd or a single enemy at any position.

Skill 3 – Blazing Brilliance (Damage)

CD – 20 seconds
Mana Cost – 100


This can be considered the main damage-dealing skill for Angela. Upon casting, she starts to shoot a beam in a straight line while dealing 12 strikes of 150 (+21% Magical Attack) /190/230 amount of magical damage to enemies.

Not only that, while shooting the beam, she gains a thick shield that grants her immunity while ignoring 850 (+88% Magical Attack) /1300/1750 amount of damage. Angela can change her beam’s direction by adjusting the joystick movement and pressing again this skill helps you to stop the ultimate instantly.

Skill-up method for Angela

Unlock skill 2 first to poke the enemies, then unlock skill 1, Ultimate, whenever it becomes available.

Honor of Kings Angela Gameplay Tips

According to Angela’s skill-casting abilities, we can categorize her as an easy-to-play type hero. She is very strong in team fights. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Honor of Kings Angela guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late games of the game. However, a player must have a good understanding of the map to get the most out of any hero.

Early Game

At level 1, unlock your second skill and purchase basic boots. Try to go in the middle lane; it will help you rotate fast in the top or bottom lanes. Clear your first wave of minions. But try to avoid farming in the jungle if a proper assassin or jungler is present.

Clear the first or second wave, then try to gank enemies in the top or bottom lane. Do not just sit idle in the lane. Spam Skill 2+ Skill 1. Additionally, poking enemies and delaying their farms will also clear your minion waves very easily.

Mid Game

Use Skill 2 to harass enemies more often while making a burning mark on them to deal extra damage on the next attack; she has a long-range, so poke your enemy in the laning phase. After unlocking Skill 3, you can perform a small (Skill 2 + Skill 1) combo. And it will help you dominate the entire game.

Angela is very fragile in the early stages, so don’t extend the fight. Instead, try to help your allies farm or wait in the bush for a successful gank. Focus on invading instead of only farming. Keep an eye on your minimap and try to secure Tyrant and Overlord whenever the jungler is trying to secure them; both will give you a gold and experience boost. Not only that but slaying overlords will also help you push the lane. Before using Ultimate, you will need only one combo:

Skill 2 + Skill 1 + Skill 3

Late Game

In the late phase, keep repeating the process to dominate the battlefield. During a team fight, always aim your ultimate and Skill 2 at the damage dealer to make sure that you hit the right target. Do not hesitate to do 1v1 or 1v2, because at this stage you will gain massive magic damage.

Whenever you press Skill 3, watch out for enemy suppression; otherwise, you will get caught or end up by the enemies. Try to cast Skill 2 first to stun the first enemy, then Skill 1, and then Skill 3 as the last nail in the coffin. And if possible, try to secure the tempest dragon in the late phase, but do not engage it directly; instead, try to hide in a bush or attack from a safe distance so that if the enemy appears suddenly, you can escape or finish them with your combos.

At this stage, after performing the combo, if the enemy will not die, just do not waste your basic attack on them or lark them. Instead of that, back off instantly to regain your skills. Though your ultimate gives you a thick shield, you should still watch out for enemy assassins before engaging directly.

Final Thoughts

Angela can be very vulnerable to hard CC heroes, so using your battle spell is very important, but if she is doing 1v1 with a mage or marksman, the enemy team will surely learn a lesson. Beware of stun and hard CC heroes, because these heroes can counter Angela easily. Mastering Angela is very easy, and it will give you an edge to rank up quickly.

But do not expose yourself often on the map. Just hide in the bush, know your position, and finish the enemy damage dealer with your one-shot combo. An excellent pick for rank games, Angela is definitely a good pick for the current meta. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Angela in Honor of Kings.
