Proven Trick to Get Mythic Gears With Ease!

This is a small trick that I usually use to obtain Mythic Gears in AFK Arena without spending a dime. I believe that a lot of players have been also using this method for months now.

And this is how to do it!

mythic gear trick

Update: April 2020 – Still working!

TL;DR:

After defeating Chapter 16-11, use this trick to get free Mythic item & Upgrade Stone (stage 21+).

  1. After beating a stage, do not defeat the next stage for 2,5-3 days.
  2. After 2,5-3 days, do either:
    1. Collect the Rewards → Beat the Stage → Collect Rewards Again
    2. Beat the Stage → Collect Rewards
  3. Profit!

Note:

  • You can collect AFK loot while waiting!
  • This trick does apply to all chapters. It doesn’t have to be the Boss map.
  • Do not wait more than 4 days.
  • If you ruin the waiting progress, attack the enemies, turn off the auto and you will lose the fight. From here, you can do the trick again.

Easiest Way to Get Mythic Gears AFK Arena

Quick Explanation to Get Mythic Gears in AFK Arena

As you all know, once you have passed Stage 16-11, there is a small chance you could get Mythic items from the AFK Campaign maps. The drop rate is normally extremely low, however, there is a simple trick to increase it by a lot.

Usually, when you are getting stuck at a specific map for a long time, Lilithgames secretly increases the drop rate of Mythic Gears significantly right after you defeat a hard map.

To take advantage of this, just pretend you are having a really hard time by not getting into a new map for about 2,5-3 days. After that, clear that map, go AFK for a couple of hours then come back to collect the loot. You will see that red gear!

Players can also use this trick to get T1 & T2 Stones for ascending Mythic gears from Stage 21!

Detailed Mythic Trick Guide

Shared by whitesushii

When you beat a stage, a timer starts counting (See the timeline below).

mythic trick timeline

By not beating a stage for X amount of time, the game will offer better rewards for beating it subsequently (pity timer).

The value of X varies depending on your stage progress as well as the reward you are going for, usually, 2 – 4 days. If you take too long, and fall into Y range, the game will give you the normal rewards for beating the stage.

I’ve personally found the in-between duration for X and Y to be around 6 hours but I highly recommend clearing under 3.

However, if you wait out the Y period as well, you can now claim the better rewards without even clearing the stage. Again, this is dependent on your stage progression but X+Gap+Y can add up to 6 – 7 days.

I’m not sure what’s the upper limit for this idle method but I’m inclined to believe there’s no limit based on others’ experiences

When done correctly, you can expect a random Mythic Gear and Upgrade Stone depending on the amount of time you waited for X and stage progression (Do note that the gear can be factionless which is again, pretty bad).

Since X and Y values can vary, I recommend using this spreadsheet (shared by mrpanafonic). It helps you track the time needed for the various rewards based on input stage progress. So far, I have had 100% success with it.

But when should you do this? I mean aren’t you slowing down stage progress waiting?

This is a common misconception made by people not doing “Mythic Trick” efficiently. Many believe the player would only clear 1 stage every 3 days doing this, thus slowing down progress. However, it is possible to progress just slightly slower, if not potentially faster than someone who isn’t doing the trick.

mythic trick afk arena

The idea is to make as much progress as the non “Mythic Trick” player would in a single day after obtaining your Mythic Gear rather than evenly every day. You don’t lose out much XP-wise due to the small stage differences over a short period of time so theoretically you should be able to progress just as much if not slightly less.

Furthermore

The player would naturally get stuck anyway and especially so at later stages where progression is a lot slower. In fact, you could potentially be faster if you luck out with a good piece of Mythic gear boosting your progression.

I Don’t Believe You! Prove It!

I have tested this trick a lot of time and been still using it for all of my accounts.

It’s not a theory. It has been tested and proven.

When you say ‘map’: do you mean an entire chapter or do you mean a subchapter as in ’16-X’

If I understand correctly, the trick goes as in the example below:
1. Imagine I am at stage 16-15.
2. I pretend to be ‘stuck’ for a little more than 48 hours

And then step 3 would be
3a. Collect 48+ hours worth of loot -> Progress to 16-16 -> Repeat from step 2?
Or
3b. Progress to 16-16 -> Collect 48+ hours worth of loot -> Repeat from step 2?

Hope my confusion was understandable, and thanks for a great guide!

Previously written – to have a 100% chance need to wait ~ 4d 13h?

Am I allowed to Battle the Stage (with a failing Team) for the daily Quest in those 48 hours?

So does it also work if you stay on the same chapter for a while, or do you have to beat it?
I’m wondering if I could just wait at the same stage for 2 days, collect a mythic item, then repeat the progress again? (Could be very handy for going on holidays ^^)

BTW: This works for legendary items as well (chapters before 16-11)

Dont work now! Try 2 times (last 72+72 h) and get only epic and epic+

Hey ! Thanks for the trick, helps loads! So far I can only use it for legendaries since I’m not at 16 yet but it works wonders ! 🙂 I just have few questions please if you can reply please, 1- During the waiting time, I can wait 48h and it’s enough right, don’t need to wait more if I can loot? For legendaries, even less than 2 days is usually enough but I guess that for mythic, I’ll better need to hold and wait for that 48h minimum right? 2- During the waiting time, I can still, do events,… Read more »

After stage 21/1 if you wait more than 3-3.5 days you get a mythic+ upgrade stone instead of the mythic gear and if you wait more than 5-6 days you get both. (only tested each once so the waiting time may not be very accurate)

It is still working for me, but I think the timeline is a bit longer than 2 days, I tried a total of 7 times and got 5 pieces of mythic gears, however the five times I got gear are when I waited for like 2 and half days. The two times when I only waited for like 50 hours, I only

and just to add to the comment above, 2 of the 5 mythic gear pieces are actually upgrade stones, I am currently in chap 24

So if I do this method for all chapter starting from 16-12, I’ll get a ton of mythic gear?

So for 48+ hours i need to fight the boss and loss intentionally or not fight him at all, also i cant touch the loot at all?

Does vip level factor in the Waiting period? I’m not in that chapter so I don’t know. I bet on wildturtlena when I started a week ago and he made me a ton of money to get ahead early so it seems legit if he/she uses it.

Hi, I have a question, will this still work if I currently can’t beat the stage I’m at ? (Stuck on 16-32) like, can I still get mythic gear if I wait for the 2-2.5 days following all your steps, but I don’t manage to beat the level ?
Collect – Lose (in my case) – Collect again
Thanks in advance

I am confused it seems to say both you can loot your afk rewards and you cant during the 2.5 day wait time? Which is it?

DC1411

Just to make sure of this. You have to wait 2 days or 2 and a half days? Others said 12 hours. I did try it first time for 12 hours and got nothing. So if I were to try 1 day, would that even matter? Also, to be clear on your statement of “loot freely”, instead of using those words and for my clarification to be on the clear side, do you mean we are able to log on at any time within the 2 days of not passing the stage and loot, then when the time comes and… Read more »

It’s working like magic, the waiting is pretty tedious but it’s worth it.

Do you have any updated stats about this? I’m mid chapter 16. I was waiting min 48 hrs and was getting mythic gear. Then I wanted to test the limits, so I waited only 36 hrs on a boss stage and got mythic gear. I tried 36 hrs again on a non boss stage and only got legendary gear. I would still need to test more. Like perhaps you want wait just over 24 hrs on boss stage and get mythic, it it may only give leg+. Have you tested like 4 or 5 days to see if you get… Read more »

I just did approx 48 wait at stage 16-32 (boss stage), and received one mythic and one leg+ after beating. Im thinking at 36 hrs (maybe even 24?) I would have still got the mythic, but not the leg+ as well.

Please update. I don’t see this working anymore, been tried it for at least 5 times so that’s 10 days of wasting my time and hope.

Still working on my. My 1st attempt (chp 16-13) was waiting 2.5 days and I got mythic gear. MY 2nd attempt was about 51 hrs and I also got mythic gear. Someone said above that he tried at 48hr and it didnt work. I’m going to try on my 3rd attemt for 48 hr and see if it works. BTW : I’m in chapter 16-15 now.

During the wait time, are you allowed to collect the afk rewards or you just leave it there?

I don’t know why but it isn’t working for me
I lose the stage and then wait 2.5 days and then beat the stage and I don’t get any mythic gear

I only have vip 6 and my rewards is maxed at 24 hours. Does it work for me? Or do i need higher vip level?

It would be good to know exactly what the mechanic is here. It seems like this is taping into a system that Lilith devised to reward players for finally defeating a level they had trouble beating.

Based on what I’ve tried so far, I think that it might apply at every stage, to give you whatever the top gear you can get from AFK rewards are for that stage (for me right now it’s Legendary+) I also think the rules might be as simple as:

1) Don’t beat a stage for more than two days
2) Finally beat the stage
3) Collect AFK rewards

I’ve read about this trick more, and my initial assumptions were correct. This looks like the most comprehensive explanation:

And this spreadsheet explains exactly how long you need to wait at each stage:

Daniel
Guest
Daniel

so basically,

(1) I stuck at a stage
(2) wait 48 hours
(3) clear a stage & receive a reward or
(3)receive a reward -> clear a stage -> AFK for awhile & receive a reward again

repeat (1),(2),(3)
