What is Arcane Labyrinth?
The Arcane Labyrinth is one of the most interesting game-mode in AFK Arena. Your goal here is to defeat the boss of each stage floor in order to get the rewards. There are 3 floors in total. The difficulty increases when players get to the next floor/stage.
While participating in this mode, players need to battle with the enemies to unlock helping Heroes, items (Labyrinth Relics), rewards and to progress further in the Labyrinth.
- The Arcane Labyrinth gets reset every 2 days. All of the rewards, items, monsters and buildings will be reset.
- In the Labyrinth, players can only access to the grids next to them.
- Be careful before you make a move because the previous grids will get destroyed.
- After defeating the Labyrinth Defenders (Bosses), you will be rewarded the Labyrinth Tokens, which are for purchasing items/Heroes in the Labyrinth Store.
- After defeating the enemies within the Labyrinth, you will be able to pick one from three Labyrinth Relics showing on the screen, which offers unique properties that help you process to the next stages of the Labyrinth easier.
- The Labyrinth Relics can only be used in the Arcane Labyrinth mode.
- The helping Heroes can only be used in the Arcane Labyrinth mode.
- After a battle, whether you are totally defeated or the time runs out, all of the heroes you used will be removed from the Arcane Labyrinth.
- You can use Dura’s Tear to bring dead heroes back alive.
How is the difficulty of Arcane Labyrinth determined?
Basically, when you power up your Heroes, the difficulty of the Arcane Labyrinth also gets increased.
The difficulty of the Labyrinth is based on the possible highest power lineup you “could” get. This is why even when you try to reset your Heroes or unequip your gears, the difficulty of the Labyrinth doesn’t change.
Basic Tips for Labyrinth
Here are some basic tips that could help you go a bit further If you are getting stuck in the Arcane Labyrinth:
- When you think you are about to lose → tap at the pause button → Exit Battle → Repeat to see If you are able to beat the enemies.
- Avoid using x2 Speed in floor 3 because you might not be able to exit the battle before you lose. Your Heroes will be returned to the states before
- Focus on the Red Flags in order to get the Elite/Legendary Relics. Pick the best paths to those Red Flags to make sure your team have enough HP as well as still be able to grab some other Relics on the way.
- Shemira is the best Hero for this game-mode.
Collecting some support Heroes at the beginning is a must If you don’t have too many Heroes in your bag. This helps you find the strong Heroes to build up the missing parts you are looking for.
If you assure that you have enough Heroes to cover you till the end of the journey, focus on defeating the Flags to get Relic buffs, which is a lot more crucial.
Remember to take the Relics that give buffs to the Heroes you own. Focus on taking Relics for your main carry/damage dealer, or the Factions that have 3+ Heroes in your team. They are the cores that help you get out of the Labyrinth.
The hardest time for most players to beat the Labyrinth is when you have a carry at level 160+ while the other Heroes are under level 141. The enemies’ power will be most likely based on your average power, which means most of your lower level Heroes will get eliminated pretty quickly. The difference between Heroes lvl. 160 vs lvl.141 is very huge.
Actually, defeating Arcane Labyrinth is not hard. It is only hard when you don’t know the proper ways to solve the maze.
Note: After the latest update, purchasing Mythic Gears in the Arcane Labyrinth is not always guaranteed. Instead, now you can also see Hero’s Essence, Enhancement Tokens, and other items.
What are the Labyrinth Relics?
After defeating every grid of enemies, you will be able to pick 1 from 3 relics showing on the screen.
There are different kinds of Relics with different properties. They boost your power based on their properties, helping you progress within the Labyrinth easier.
Once you picked the relics, they will be automatically equipped. You don’t have do to anything else to activate them.
All of the Relics will get removed once the Labyrinth is over.

What is the Dura’s Tear?
Dura’s Tear is a special item which can only be used within the Arcane Labyrinth.
Once you activated this item, it will immediately revive all of the dead heroes in your team, as well as will give all of the alive Heroes to full HP/Energy.
The easiest way to earn Dura’s Tear is to complete the Weekly Quests.
If you are pretty sure that you can beat the current enemies with the dead Heroes in your team, don’t hesitate to use the Dura’s Tear to revive them.
Finishing the event to get the rewards is a lot more important than saving the Dura’s Tear for nothing.
