AFK Arena Tier List for Late Game

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
(Level 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.

During the early stage of the game, it’s recommended to use either as your main carry while slowly getting because she will be your main carry from level 60 to 240.

AFK Arena Tier List for Mid Game
(Level 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.

Endgame PVE & PVP Tier List by Shizzam

Firstly, this is my personal opinion. Every player has their own playstyle so what is amazing for me may only be OK for you so please do take this, and any hero tier list, with a pinch of salt.

I have categorized the heroes into these sections and subsections and provided a brief rationale. Note that many heroes fulfill more than 1 role.

Arguably the best healer. Immortal. Great damage if supported. Usable at any ascension level.
daimonDamage based on enemy hp so scales amazingly even at low ascension. Great energy regen and self-sustain.
Damage has a chance to ignore enemy defence so great damage scaling. Has control with suction and ult.
arthurVery good base stats with high hp regen, cc immunity and a great signature item to buff allies.
Arguably the best tank in the game with great heals, energy regen for the team and stuns.
Best buffs in the game.
Very good damage, buffs and a very strong control, scales very well with enemy level.
Arguably the best debuffs in the game. Can lockdown enemy heals and energy easily.
Amazing raw damage stats. So strong that she can stagger enemies at massive lvl deficits.
Her ultimate can wipe enemy teams at 80+ lvl deficit. Great damage and can stagger.
Very good heal and cc.
Very good buffs and damage that scales with enemy hp.
Teleport allows her to tank to some extent and arguably best cc in the game.
Amazing energy regen that persists on death, great at denying enemy ults.
With signature item a solid tank: 4 x cheat deaths that replenish. Also a very strong damage dealer.
Solid damage, self-sustain and a great single target lockdown.
MezothVery good base stats with high hp regen, cc immunity and good control.
Great haste and damage buff and with furniture, a strong damage dealer.
khazardVery good AoE damage, enemy debuffs and strong control.
Very good AoE debuff that can interrupt spells and attacks. Once ramped up, very good hp regen and cc immunity.
Very strong damage and heals. Only issue is vulnerable to interrupts.
floraGood damage, unique playstyle so very good in niche situations.
cecillaGreat damage debuff and can ramp up quickly during a battle.
Best abilities for scaling with enemy damage. However retaliation is difficult to pull off.
Drops off hard end game, however he still has good defense abilities and heals.
Great single target lockdown and furniture item.
Very strong raw damage abilities, issue is he needs team support while stealing defence from his team mates.
izoldVery strong self sustain and furniture item.

Yet Another End-Game Tier List of AFK Arena

For Campaigns & King’s Tower | Shared by Idle_Jasper_

Here are basically the best Heroes for the end game in AFK Arena right now. I do not really want to put a specific tier list with S, A, B, C tier, etc for this section so I will put the characters into 3 generic categories.

Campaign End-Game Tier List

  • Optimal Tier: Safe & Great Heroes to invest. They shine very well in the late game, even in the highest chapters of AFK Arena.
  • Situational Tier: A bit less important ones. You can swap them with the above Heroes in some specific situations. They are very important in some lineups.
  • Subpar Tier: Worst Heroes to invest.

Always take this AFK Arena tier list with a grain of salt. You don’t have to follow everything I mention in this guide and always remember that team synergy is the top priority in building up the team.

In general, you want to build up a team evolving around one main carry (The one that provides the main damage output). The team should have 2 tanks (who have high defense and HP) and support Heroes (who provide buffs, debuffs, healing effects, crowd control effects, etc.). All the others help the main Hero stay to deal as much damage as possible.

  • Optimal Hero Tier List
  • Situational Hero Tier List
  • Subpar Hero Tier List

Optimal Hero Tier List

  • Ferael, Thoran, Nara
  • Tasi, Lyca, Nemora, Eironn
  • Lucius, Rowan, Belinda, Fawkes
  • Brutus
  • Athalia (+30 or higher signature item), Mehira, Twins.

Situational Hero Tier List

  • Grezhul, Shemira, Kelthur
  • Ulmus, Gorvo, Seirus, Kaz, Lorsan
  • Rosaline, Hendrik, Estrilda
  • Khasos, Warek, Vurk, Skregg
  • Orthos, Ezizh

Subpar Hero Tier List

  • Isabella, Baden
  • Thane, Rane
  • Numisu, Antandra
  • Satrana
  • Zolrath

General Tips for Notable Characters

Shemira: Why she isn’t an optimal hero

Obviously, she is one of the best Heroes in the early to mid-stage of the game. She starts shining from lvl. 161 as she unlocks her most important skill here.

During this time, you can invest your resources and get her to 40 levels higher than the other Heroes while still being able to provide decent support to her using lower-level supports.

She is Free-to-play friendly and is the easiest carry to invest in: You can get 2 Shemira copies for free, one from the Divine Realm and one from finishing Chapter 15. You can also get her from the Labyrinth Store.

Once your crystal is above level 240, you can start feeling that she becomes less effective. She now dies faster and usually before casting the ultimate. After level 240, most players use Shemira in the Guild Hunt and some specific King’s Tower only. That’s why I do not put her in the optimal hero tier list of AFK Arena.

Triple Wilders Combo

Shemira + Green Trio (Lyca, Nemora, Tasi) + Lucius/Brutus/Grezhul is one of the most used teams in the game, especially for Campaign and King’s Tower.

Usually, after level 240, people tend to replace Shemira with Ferael.

The Green Trio is still extremely amazing for Campaigns. And of course, I strongly recommend building Lyca, Nemora & Tasi your first tree Wilder Heroes. After that, you can work on Eironn or Kaz as the tank for the Wilder tower.

Arden is great in the early game. He shines after level 141. However, since he is capped at level 160, he won’t be that effective past chapter 22/23.

Lorsan isn’t used much in the current meta. However, he is great for Guild Hunts and some specific campaigns.

Farael, One of The Best Carries in AFK Arena

If not the best.

Farael should have one of the very best situations in the tier list of AFK Arena.

He has crazy high damage, stun. He can summon spirits that reduce the enemy Energy and interrupt attacks. Yes, he is that great.

In addition, he can survive extremely well by dodging attacks. Not to mention that his signature item is one of the best right now.

Farael starts shining after level 200. And you can really feel the difference after level 240.

Get as many copies of Farael as possible. Never use him as a fooder.

Lightbearer Team

Nowadays, using Lightbearers in the campaign becomes more viable with the release of the new Lightbearer Heroes.

If you are not using a full Lightbearer team, you want to focus on either Rowan or Lucius at first.

The team faction bonus is what makes a full Lightbearer (or Celestial – Lightbearer) team super strong right now. You can run Athalia as the main carry as long as her signature item is lvl 30+ (to ensure she will have enough damage).

Mauler Team

Maulers are probably the worst faction for Campaign & King’s Tower.

The only exception is Brutus. Due to the Last Gasp ability, he is able to deal with enemies who are way stronger than him.

Khasos & Safiya are two honored mentions. They are very good in some specific chapters. But they are still not enough to be called optimal Heroes.

Example Lineups

Here are some great examples of lineups that have been tested carefully by a lot of top players.

Brutus + Tasi + Nemora + Ferael + Lyca

 

This should be the best team for F2P and low spenders players in AFK Arena to play in the end game. This is one of the most popular endgame teams right now. As a free to play player, it is totally possible to reach chapter 25 using this crazy strong team.

It’s ok to replace Brutus with Grezhul, Nara or Thoran.

Lucius + Estrilda + Rowan + Fawkes + Belinda

 

Estrilda can be replaced with Hendrik or Rosaline. Fawkes can be used as a dodge tank. You can also use Celestial heroes in this team, as long as they have high-level signature items.

If you want to use a full Lightbearer team, you will usually need to swap Heroes depending on the situation. This is not a free-to-play faction.

Thoran + Nara + Farael Teams

These 3 are great base Heroes for many campaign teams. You can add any Hero from the mentioned green trio, Eironn, Athalia or Brutus depending on the enemies.

If you have any questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to comment down below to help us improve this AFK Arena Tier List. Love you guys!
