AFK Arena Late Game Tier List
(Lvl. 161+)

At this state of the game, Legendary Heroes will no get any additional skill upgrades, they will fall off in power, losing the viability. The AFK Arena Late Game is now more evolved around Mythic Heroes.

AFK Arena Early Game Tier List
(Lvl 1 – 60)

The AFK Arena Early Game Tier List ranks Heroes based on their abilities to finishing the early games effectively and efficiently. They are usually the Heroes that can carry their teams with the least investment possible.

AFK Arena Tier List for Mid Game
(Lvl. 61 – 160)

The Mid Game starts from level 61 because this is where Legendary Heroes get their Ultimate lvl.2  and Mythic Heroes get their 4th skill, making them a lot more viable than at the early game.
This is a huge level up achievement for all Heroes in AFK Arena. This is where true battles begin.

Shimera is an extremely team dependent hero who needs heavy investment to be good. She is an Ultimate-dependent Survivalist hero with extremely low health and attack stat for a survivalist damage dealer. This means, for her to successfully play the 1v5 game, she needs a team that can survive until she ults, and she needs durability to not die when outnumbered and the damage to sweep an entire team with her ult. Without the right team and stat investment, Shimera just does not work in 1v5 situations. More in Hero Strategy page SOON….
