Secrets of The Forest Guide (PoT Chapter 3)

The reason most people are looking at AFK Arena Secrets of the Forest guide is that the first two chapters are just very easy to complete. There’s not too much you can stuff up. However, Secrets of the Forest is the first one that you can actually have some trouble with.

You can progress and ignore the main chest and get a bunch of loot, which is probably what most people will have to do when they first start out because getting straight to the final chest is really hard.

Most people actually complete Rest in Peace and the Ancient Ruins before being able to complete The Secrets of the Forest.

Every time you beat an enemy, the thorn will grow and there’s basically one path you can take that the thorns won’t block that chest in time.

Tip: You can reset any Peaks of Time stage as many times as you like. Then, you can try and reset to get better relics that benefit your team better.

New Working Guide

New working strategy!

Simply attack all of the enemies from 1 to 5 to stop the vines from growing then you can get to the chest position (#6) without worrying about the vines.

  1. First, just obviously clear the first enemy and get a relic.
  2. Defeat the next enemy and choose a suite table relic for your team. You now be able to reach the #3 spot.
  3. Click at the #3 structure to release the enemies. However, do not attack them yet, you want to strengthen your team a bit more.
  4. Click here to receive a bonus Hero for your team. You want to get a Wilder hero from this.
  5. Attack this one to get another relic.
  6. Do your best to defeat this one using at least 4 wilders Wilder heroes.
  7. Once you have successfully defeated the #6, you can freely move to the #7 position anytime. This is where the last final chest spawns. The thorn will not spawn anymore from now and the final chest will not get blocked. Get the chest and you will be rewarded with the Artifact.

Good afternoon or other time of day.
In this guide, you need to clarify what formation is required from the player in order to “earn the respect of the Forest”, and discover the Hidden Path, that Lyka speaks. Otherwise, it will be what I show you in the screenshot.
By the way, I never discovered the hidden path, some hero (or several) is missing.


Omg this is so crucial can you update the guide above? Was wondering how to unlock the paths until I see this comment, which was too late

With the new update, this doesn’t work anymore.
I strictly followed this guide and after beat the wilders with my full team of Wilders, i went to #7 position but the thorn just keep spawning and i couldn’t get the chest.


How do I start over again? Because I definitely messed up

I think u are wrong at position 5, I tried follow the tutorial, but it didn’t work, and then I changed the path and it worked

Stephan Raymond

With the new path, do you still need to kill the #6 (from old method) with Wilder’s to unlock the top left section of the map and the blocked off chest to the right of it?
Or will any team do to unlock those and the new method is just for the Dura chest?

How can i open the bushes what blocked the road?
