AFK Arena Tier List – Best Heroes for PvP & PvE (Patch 1.143)

This AFK Arena Tier List gives players a rough idea of the best Heroes you should focus on during different stages of the game: Early, Mid, and Late Game.

By understanding the most powerful to spend your resources on, you will be able to save a lot of resources, time, and progress through the game a lot easier.

Hero ratings for different game modes are also included: PvP, PvE, Labyrinth Arcane, and Guild Boss.

If you are new to the game, check out the Hero Priority guide or read the guide at the bottom of this page to see the general idea to build up your teams based on this tier list ranking!

Last Update: Patch 1.144 (June, 2024), “Awakened Antandra – Dragonflame Spear” Release

Early Game Tier List

From the beginning to Campaign Chapter 30.

Before level 160, it’s recommended to use Mirael as your main carry while slowly working on daimon Daimon, Scarlet Scarlet or Raku Raku as they should be your main carry afterwards (but Daimon is by far the best carry until Chapter 30). Select Merlin Merlin or Leonardo Leonardo from the gladiator coin challenger store and use labyrinth token lab coins for Joan of Arc except when a dimensional exchange is ongoing. More details here!

After level 160, Legendary Tier Heroes will no get any additional skill upgrades, they will fall off in power, losing the viability. It’s safe to sacrifice the following Heroes immediately for upgrading the others.

  

Arden is the only Legendary Tier hero that can still be useful for a few more chapters after you reach Resonant Crystal Lv 160. So you can keep using him for a while if you want.

For more details, please scroll down!

Shemira & Belinda are not great starting heroes anymore!

Obviously, Belinda and Shemira are good Heroes in the early to mid-stage of the game.  They are Free-to-play friendly and are the easiest carry heroes 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. The same things apply to Belinda!

They used to be meta in 2019. However, there are much better options now. Their damage and flexibility are not even close as strong as heroes like Daimon. That’s why Belinda and Shemira are very bad on the above AFK Arena tier list!

Build Up Your Teams Based on the Top-tier Heroes

During the first 30 chapters. daimon Daimon with Lv20 signature, or Raku Raku with Lv30 signature or ascended Scarlet Scarlet or ascended Ainz are excellent options to carry you easily. If you have a strong Eironn or kren Kren, they are also great carry options for the first 30 chapters.

 Rowan with signature level 30 is also very important, probably the most important signature level 30 in the game. Palmer, Nevanthi, Ferael, Joan of Arc, Rosaline, Lyca, Tasi are very useful support/utility heroes even with signature level 20. afk arena silas Silas and Merlin Merlin are also great, but need a little higher investment.

Lorsan and Brutus can be useful in many situations even at elite ascension, even during the end game. Elite mortasMortas can be quite useful in the early-mid game.

Grezhul and Mishka Mishka are the best tanks to invest in first. Both have one of the most important level 9 furniture in the game. Signature level 20 is enough for both during early-mid game. arthur Arthur is quite tanky during early-mid game, so he can be very useful to you if you have him.

Starting from Chapter 31, you will need multiple comps in the campaign. So you should focus on building meta comps little by little. In Late game, you will need five comps every boss stage.


These are the main comps used at the highest level deficits in the end game of the campaign. These are comps that are meta between 250 and 450 level deficit:

 

Thoran Cheese

This is the strongest comp in Campaign, but it only works if you’re playing at very high level deficits (preferably above 180 level deficits, but it can work between 120 and 180 level deficits in some stages). This comp consists of Thoran taking as much damage as possible while using his ult, because Thoran returns all the damage taken to the enemy team and kills them.

It is highly recommended not to upgrade Thoran’s engraving, as this means that he does not take as much damage as he should during the ult. His Signature level 30 is highly recommended. His furnitures level 3 and 9 are very useful in some stages.

Thoran usually uses Call, Eye or Blade artifact. This will depend on whether the Thoran needs more energy. Call level 5 is also highly important for this team, as it makes allies transfer energy to Thoran upon death.

Lorsan is great in this comp for linking two enemies to share damage taken. Heroes like Athalia and Nara are great at preventing the enemy Mehira from dropping her bats early in the battle, plus they are also capable of repositioning enemies to bring them closer to Thoran. Zaphrael Zaphrael is also useful to stun an enemy early in the battle. All these heroes can work pretty well even at elite ascension.

Lyca, Ezizh, Rowan and Raine are examples of heroes that can help Thoran ult faster. Eironn is great at repositioning enemies and Skriath with level 3 furniture can help Eironn reposition them even better for Thoran.

Kelthur is also great with Thoran because, in addition to repositioning enemies, he charges energy very quickly and transfers it to Thoran after dying if you have Call level 5.

Pippa with Lv20 signature is also great because she can reposition Thoran and give him invincibility for a few seconds.

Charm Comp

This is one of the strongest comps in Campaign because Mehira’s charm causes enemies to attack each other and kill themselves. And Mehira can work even at Elite ascension. Eventually you will need her at Mythic ascension with signature level 30 though.

Mehira will most often use Windbinder artifact to unleash her first ult as quickly as possible. But Winged Warden and Call can be great artifact options for Mehira depending on the situation.

Rowan is used a lot in the Charm comp because it gives Mehira a lot of extra energy. Zolrath with level 3 furniture and Lyca are great options to help Mehira drop her first ult even faster.

Rosaline must always follow Mehira in this comp. This makes Mehira able to ult much more often.

khazard Khazard is also great in this comp because his level 30 signature makes Mehira’s charm last 8 seconds instead of 5. Khazard doesn’t need to be better than mythic ascension at signature level 30, as his sole purpose in Campaign is to activate his signature effect at the start of battles.

Sometimes a carry with good damage is needed in this comp. So sometimes we can see heroes like Oden Oden, Raku Raku, kren Kren, Awakened Belinda, Lucretia Lucretia, Scarlet Scarlet, Framton Framton, daimon Daimon or Grezhul being used with Mehira.

There are also rare situations where a tank that can tank massive amounts of damage early in the battle, such as Brutus, is useful.

 

Leo Permastun

afk arena pc download

This comp consists of keeping enemies stunned during the entire battle or almost the entire battle with Leonardo Leonardo’s ult.

Mishka Mishka is very strong in this comp because she can ult very quickly and stun enemies, giving Leonardo time to survive until he charges the ult. Zolrath with furniture level 3 is great for speeding this process up even further.

Awakened-Ezizh Awakened Ezizh, Nemora, Geralt, Oden Oden, Morrow Morrow, Tamrus can help with early stuns. But none of the above heroes have enough damage to carry at very high level deficits. So you need a carry like Raku Raku, Awakened Thane, Awakened Belinda, Awakened Brutus, kren Kren or Scarlet Scarlet in this comp.

mortas Mortas, afk arena silas Silas and Palmer are situational supports that can make your carry even stronger.

khazard Khazard with signature level 30 is great for increasing Leonardo’s CC duration. Canisa & Ruke is a great tank that has great survivability and can help with stuns and damage. Brutus is good at tanking a lot of damage early in the fight, if need be. Ezio Ezio is useful for countering Hendrik or Brutus.

 

Alna GB

For this comp to be used in the campaign, alna Alna needs level 30 signature and level 9 furniture. Her furniture gives Alna and her frontline partner a great invincibility early in the battle and her signature allows them to activate the invincibility again when their health is below 50%.

Usually, Alna’s frontline partner is Grezhul. But Awakened Baden can be better than Grezhul in some situations.

Oden Oden and Scarlet Scarlet are heroes with great damage and CC to support Grezhul. Ferael, daimon Daimon, and Awakened Solise can also be useful in some situations.

mortas Mortas, afk arena silas Silas and Nevanthi are heroes that can improve the team’s survivability and provide great buffs. Desira Desira is a more niche support hero, but it can also be useful depending on the situation.

 

Five-pull comp

In this comp, Eironn is able to pull all 5 enemies thanks to Skriath’s level 3 furniture.

queen Queen is also a core hero in this comp because she is able to stun all 5 enemies for the entire battle. Especially if Skriath has level 30 signature.

The other two heroes in the comp vary greatly depending on the situation. Sometimes you will need more damage, so Lucretia Lucretia, Raku Raku, Scarlet Scarlet or daimon Daimon will be great alternatives. Sometimes you’ll need someone who can tank a lot of damage to help your team survive Eironn’s initial pull, so Awakened Phoenix Awakened Talene or Brutus are great even if they have a very low ascension. And sometimes you’ll need heroes to help Queen with stuns, like Mishka Mishka or Geralt.

Sometimes you will need Zolrath or Lyca to pull your enemies faster. Ezio Ezio is a niche option used to counter Hendrik or Brutus.

 

Lucretia invade

Lucretia Lucretia is a hero who gets a lot of buffs when an ally dies. So, in this comp, you must let your allies die for Lucretia to get stronger and kill all enemies.

She can be great in the 5-pull comp mentioned above, where Eironn pulls in all 5 enemies, some or all allies die after his initial pull, and then Lucretia kills all enemies.

But she is also used frequently outside the 5-pull comp. In Lucretia Invade comp, you must use as many heroes as possible that can help Lucretia in some way before they die.

Lorsan, for example, links two enemies as soon as the battle starts. This is excellent for Lucretia to kill them faster. Granit Granit with signature level 30 can freeze nearby enemies as soon as he dies.

Raine marks an enemy to take more damage and gives Lucretia extra energy. Haelus Haelus and Hodgkin Hodgkin can give a great buff to Lucretia when the battle begins. mortas Mortas can quickly ult and give a very strong buff to Lucretia. afk arena silas Silas is also excellent if he manages to survive until he ults on Lucretia.

Zolrath and Lyca can also be useful in very specific situations where you need activate a specific skill earlier.

Nemora, Zaphrael Zaphrael or Awakened-Ezizh Awakened Ezizh have great starting CC to help Lucretia. Brutus has an invincibility at the start of battles, causing enemies to focus their attacks on him while Lucretia kills them.

I will just make it short here so that you can quickly know which heroes you should invest for the most viable endgame PvP teams.

  • Dimensional team: Albedo MerlinEzio is the strongest PvP comp in the game. Anasta or Haelus can replace Joan of Arc. Another variation of this team is with Ainz or Yennefer instead of Awakened Brutus. Ainz team can have Mortas or Leonardo replacing Joan of Arc or Ezio. Yennefer team can have Awakened Solise or Geralt replacing Joan of Arc or Ezio.
  • Nevanthi team: is the second strongest PvP comp. Awakened Baden, Ferael or Palmer can replace Canisa & Ruke. Talene, Awakened Talene or Titus can replace Orthros.
  • Awakened Thane team: Haelus is a very strong PvP comp. Palmer can replace Estrilda, Sonja or Hendrik. Orthros can replace Estrilda or Sonja. Joan of Arc or Raine can replace Sonja.
  • Alna team: alna mortasafk arena silas is another great PvP comp. Ferael, Oden, Fane or Kalene can replace Mortas or Athalia. Canisa & Ruke, Lucretia or Grezhul can replace Awakened Baden.
  • Burst team: ZaphraelAudrae is also very strong on PvP. Anasta, Awakened Thane or Mishka can replace Veithael or Audrae. Oku, Canisa & Ruke or Estrilda can also replace Veithael.
  • Cycle team: ScarletDesira is as strong as some of the comps above. Palmer, Awakened Solise or Haelus can replace Desira. Lucretia can replace Scarlet.

 

Twisted Realm Tier List

Some of you might want to have a better score in Twisted Realm.

Scarlet Scarlet and Awakened Solise are definitely the best heroes that gives you a lot of great positions in many bosses.

Twins are extremely important here and is the main reason why I recommend getting it early. mortas Mortas is also very strong against bosses. Twins and Mortas can work pretty well at Elite ascension on this game mode.

In the early game, there are a few heroes that are easy to get and work really well here such as Grezhul and  Warek. Grezhul should be one of your first ascended graveborns. Warek can work pretty well at Elite ascension for a very long time.
