The Hunting Fields Guide & Tips

Start the journey with your friends in a group of 5 to defeat the Oleus in AFK Arena The Hunting Fields event.

The event is coming back to AFK world in May.

Quick Hunting Fields Guide

  • It’s better to team up with your Guild members and friends to avoid abandoned team members.
  • Once the event started, try to acquire all camps asap, up to the limit.
  • Transfer challenger seal Challenge Seals to the strongest member to raid boss, Usually, this is the one who uses  graveborn Graveborns or  premium factions Cele/Hypo/Dime faction.
  • All of the relics should be transferred to the shared bag automatically. You don’t need most of the relics you have. Don’t be greedy, the entire squad should be strong together.
  • Combine the relics after you have all of the materials to save Hunter Mark Hunter Marks!
  • Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need to take down T5 camps. 
  • In the beginning, you don’t need to get to the boss asap. Once you get higher rank, you can attack the plaint tiles without spending any food Stamina by using Sweep.
  • Don’t use challenger seal Challenge Seals immediately once the event started.
  • Avoid using x2/x4 Speed as you could lose unexpectedly!
  • Don’t attack the Mini-bosses in the second zone right after you unlock it. It’s better to just attack mini-bosses in the first zone.

When should I attack bosses?

  • Alna: When main carries have 3-0 Relics
  • Khazard: When main carries have 4-0 Relics
  • Oleus: When main carries have 4-2 Relics.

attack dealing 220% Attack Rating damage.
