In AFK Arena, there are 5 Stores for players to purchase different types of items, using different kinds of currencies.
For the easiest way, you can visit all of these Stores via the Store building which is located in the Ranhorn.
However, there are also some other ways to visit those Stores as well.
AFK Arena Stores
This is the normal store of the game. Which does require Diamonds and Gold for purchasing various items.
The Normal Store restocks at 00:00 GMT every day. However, you can refresh it whenever you want using 100x Diamonds per refresh. The more refreshes you do, the higher costs it takes.
Once you have gotten past Chapter 10-22, you can start purchasing Mythic gears at here using Diamonds.
This is also the only store in AFK Arena that sells Hero’s Essence, which is very crucial for the endgame stage.
Next to the Normal Store is the Guild Store.
The Guild Store only sells gears and Guild Coin is the only currency supported here. Players can get the Guild Coins by participating in Guild activities like Team Hunting.
This is probably the best place to get high-end Gears in AFK Arena due to the diversity of gears and due to how easy it is to get Guild Coins.
- Once you get past Campaign Chapter 10-22, you will be able to purchase Legendary Gears from the Guild Store.
- Once you get past Campaign Chapter 12-2, you will be able to purchase Mythic Gears from the Guild Store.
Similar to the normal Store, you can restock the items in the Guild Store immediately by spending 100 Diamonds. The more refreshes you do, the more Diamonds it costs.
What to purchase?
In General, the only things you want to purchase in the Guild Store are Mythic Gears. Getting to Chapter #12-2 to unlock Mythic Gears is not that hard.
You can get Legendary Items and Elite Items easily during the early game so no need to waste any Guild Coin on them.
Gathering Guild Coins is not really easy because the number of Team Hunting battles you can do every day is limited. Saving Guild Coins for Mythic Gears is extremely important.
If you usually do Team Hunting and don’t buy any other item in the Guild Store, you will certainly have enough to get 3-4 Mythic Items. The price of one Mythic gear is 31k Guild Coins, which is pretty high.
You normally need around 2 weeks to get 20k Guild Coins.
The Barracks Store is where you can purchase lots of Hero Soulstones as well as specific Heroes using Hero Coins, which can be obtained by retiring Heroes in the Rickety Cart building.
Every month, the Barracks Store restock once, starting from the day you created your account. After the refresh, the contents of the Barracks do not change.
Players can refresh the Barracks anytime using 1,000 Diamonds.
Next to the Barracks is the Labyrinth Store.
Labyrinth Store has mixed items, from Hero’s Essence, Soulstones to Specific Heroes. All of them can only be purchased using Labyrinth Tokens here.
Players earn Labyrinth Tokens by defeating bosses in the Arcane Labyrinth.
Similar to Barracks, it restocks items once per month and the items never get changed.
You can restock all of the items by spending 1000 Diamonds.
What to buy?
At the early game, buying Rare Hero Soulstones might be the best option. Purchasing specific Elite Heroes is not necessary during this time.
Only purchase Elite Heroes once you’ve had 3 copies of them so that you can ascend them to Legendary+ Tier right away.
The Challenger Store sells only some specific very rare Heroes, including the rarest Heroes are Ezizh and Athalia.
In order to purchase these specific Heroes, players need to use the Challenger Coins, which can only be rewarded by keeping certain ranks in the Legends’ Challenger Tournament.
As this store offers the rarest Heroes, it is not easy to obtain enough Challenger Coins to purchase any hero. You need to hold the 1st position for a month in order to purchase either Ezizh and Athalia from the store.
You can restock the purchased Heroes by spending 100 Diamonds.
