Talents FAQ!

Regarding Talents Daily Rewards, the title says "DAILY LOGIN REWARDS FOR TALENTS STARTING MAY 31", but the DATE in the table below shows the first date is June 1. Which is correct?

Because we have server downtime on May 31, we're leaving extra time on the "first day" to ensure all players in all regions have a chance to participate and don't miss out on Day One rewards.


What's the maximum level of Talents I can upgrade?

Rare Talents can be upgraded 20 times, while Epic Talents are upgradeable 10 times and Legendary 5 times.


Can I obtain Talents by buying them directly?

You can get talents directly in the Market with Glory. If you don't have enough Glory, you can buy Glory with ICE. Glory is a much more precious commodity now and you may run low from time to time. If there’s a talent coin you need in the Pick 3 or an upgrade just out of reach, you can now buy Glory with ICE to ensure you don’t miss out. And if you don’t want to spend, just play matches to earn lots of Glory and focus on the 5-Hero Chest.


Why did you make Glory purchasable with ICE?

With the introduction of talents, Glory is a much more precious commodity. You'll be using Glory to acquire and upgrade lots of talents, and that Glory will run low and run out much more frequently for most players than in the past. We're making Glory available for ICE so that players have control of their own destiny: If you don't want to wait and build your Glory back up, you can buy Glory with ICE and never get temporarily stuck. If you don't want to spend, that's totally fine. Just play games to earn enough Glory for the talents and upgrades you want, and focus on the 5-Hero Chest, which rewards talents for the specific heroes you play — without you spending any money at all. And of course, talents are exclusive to our short BRAWL game modes. Talents are NOT available in our classic MOBA game modes, so spending money on ICE has zero impact on our standard casual and ranked Vainglory experiences.


Will there be a separate "Talent-less" queue for players who prefer Brawl mode as a classic experience?

All BRAWL game modes will include talents, although that's something we could consider for the future.


How come my favorite ability doesn't have a Talent associated with it?

Heroes have a wide range of talents, but we're not stopping here! Expect more talents in the releases ahead, and there's a good chance that ability you love will be included.


Will Talents ever change? And what happens to ones I've unlocked if they do?

It is definitely possible for talents to change the same way that hero and item balance can change. That said, we hope to keep things as consistent as possible. If you've unlocked a talent, that talent would remain unlocked even if some nuances were altered.


How much more powerful can Talents be?

Some talents are statistical boosts, while others have more dramatic or flashy effects. Typically, the Legendary talents are the most unusual or ability-altering. As you level up talents, they can become significantly more powerful, so definitely play for Glory and use the "5-Hero Chest" to earn talents!


Will 5v5 be a BRAWL game mode (with talents)?

The 5v5 MOBA game mode we are working on will NOT be a BRAWL game mode.


What happens in the case of getting coins for a Talent I have maxed out?

Instead of getting bonus talent coins that you can't use, you'll receive replacement Glory automatically. Use that Glory to get other talents ... or use for whatever you want!


Can I destroy Talents if I get too many repeated or excessive like I could do with Cards?

You won't get excess talent coins because you'll receive replacement Glory instead of talent coins you can't use.


Now that there is a chance that Talent coins drop in chests, will this mean I will get less Glory from chests than before?

It's unlikely you'll feel any difference in the amount of Glory you're getting from chests.


Will there be a separate Mystery Chests that have/does not have talents?

Right now, all Mystery Chests will include talents, but it's something we could consider for the future!


How often will the Today's Talents in the offer section be updated?

Every 24 hours.


Will I get coins for heroes that I don't own?



Can I use talents in normal game modes (MOBA) or in BRAWL game modes only?

Talents are exclusive to BRAWL game modes. They are not in our classic MOBA game modes.


Will the matchmaker try to match me with players who have the same amount of talents unlocked?

The Matchmaker will attempt to make the most competitive match possible, based on a number of different considerations.


How often do the five-hero chest get replaced?

The fastest you can open the 5-Hero Chest is once every 24 hours, but you can take as long as you like to complete a set. This chest will go on a countdown timer like other quests, and when the timer is up, you can do the chest again.
