Always use if able to.

Ainz AFK Arena

Talene AFK Arena

Elijah & Lailah AFK Arena

Elijah & Lailah

Rowan AFK Arena

Rowan

Talene AFK Arena
Talene

Talene is on a tier of her own at every point of the game. She is incredibly powerful, versatile and contributes to any faction bonus. Often times Talene will outclass heroes that are several levels of ascension over her and she should always be considered a core part of a lineup if you’re lucky enough to have her at a decent ascension tier.

Rowan AFK Arena
Rowan

Rowan only reaches this tier with his Signature item at 30+, which is a heavy resource investment, but as the only non-celestial / hypogean unit to reach this tier he is very worth it

S Tier

Universally good heroes and very worth investing in.

Athalia AFK Arena

Athalia

Alna AFK Arena

Lucretia AFK Arena

Lucretia

Eironn AFK Arena

Eironn

Athalia AFK Arena
Athalia

In the extremely late game, Athalia is the weakest unit in this tier, but she would still easily be S tier even past the point where she falls off.

A Tier

Excellent heroes to invest in at any point in the game.

Ferael AFK Arena

Queen AFK Arena

Ferael AFK Arena
Ferael

Potentially the hardest carry in the game.

Saurus AFK Arena
Saurus

Extremely powerful vs Wrizz and Soren

Eluard AFK Arena
Eluard

Eluard is looking pretty strong, putting him into A Tier until we see more use.

Shemira AFK Arena
Shemira

Shemira falls off as you get later in the game, but she is so powerful and important to mid game lineups that putting her anywhere other than the S tier would be misleading. She is one of the most powerful units in the game to build to the ascended tier, and can hold her own as a roleplayer for an incredible amount of time.

Tasi AFK Arena
Tasi

Tasi is a less universal unit than some of the others on the list seeing as she falls extremely short against guild bosses, but her power is undeniable in modes where her consistent crowd control will turn the tides of battle.

Thoran AFK Arena
Thoran

Without his signature item Thoran is an extremely weak unit, but with his signature item he can be used to cheese some late-game levels that are nearly impossible without him.

B Tier

Great heroes to use in AFK Arena. All-round well placed in all modes and phases.

Mortas AFK Arena

How was this AFK Arena tier list constructed?

Through extensive play, experience with the game and analysing other tier lists, we have put together this tier list to help others and ensure that investments are being made into valuable heroes, both in terms of time and resources.

Should I follow this tier list entirely?

No, not entirely. Take this tier list as a guideline and follow it where you feel you can make the most impact. This tier list is partly subjective and is bound to change over time, so a hero that is currently in C Tier could potentially be A Tier later down the line.

What are the best AFK Arena characters?

5 Extremely solid heroes. You should aim to be using at least one of these to dominate late game.
  1. Talene
  2. Rowan
  3. Elijah & Lailah
  4. Athalia
  5. Ainz

Is it worth using the stargazer to pull heroes?

Yes, and in fact you should mainly use this feature to pull your Celestial/Hypogean heroes as they are treated equally here with the other core factions. Most of the time, Hypogeans and Celestials can't be purchased and thus are much harder to acquire. There are actually stargazing strategies you can use, read our stargazer guide to make sure you're using it efficiently.

What is the best AFK Arena team?

There are many great team compositions out there, but to mention one of them: The Lightbearer Comp = Lucius, Rowan, Belinda, Rosaline, Fawkes/Gwyneth.

The lightbearer comp with a high level Rowan is the strongest non-celestial composition in the game. It has both powerful burst and tankiness. Additionally, all of these units are accessible and powerful early on in the game, with Rowan being the only one that requires a heavy resource investment to be powerful.

If you have some good AFK Arena team comps that you want to share here, send us a message and we'll feature it.

How should I ascend my AFK Arena heroes?

We have written an extensive guide on ascension and how you should aim to do it most effectively. There is also a very helpful infographic which you can follow.

Make sure you take advantage of AFK Arena codes to speed up your progression throughout the game.
