Because of the large number of heroes available in AFK Arena, players can try out a variety of game modes.

You’ll quickly learn, as you will in most games of this type, that some units are worth your time and effort while others aren’t.

We’ve graded AFK Arena’s heroes based on how valuable they are to players in this list. You’ll want to read the descriptions of each tier that we’ve included if you want to put together the finest possible party.

Tier List Methodology

The following considerations were taken into account when creating this tier list:

  • Due to our focus on the endgame, we’ve created a list that implies all heroes are at least level 240 and have attained full acclaim.
  • The feasibility of the hero in various game modes is taken into account.
  • Synergy with other party members is also taken into account.

Tier List

Every hero was assessed not just on their overall rating, but also on their performance in the game modes PvE, PvP, Arcane Labyrinth, and Quests. There are a lot of different ways to maximize your party, and this information can help you make better judgments.

  • Because of their incredible stats and value in the endgame, these heroes are worth every second invested. These heroes have a wide range of skills and abilities, making it possible to use them in a wide variety of party settings.
  • In the later phases of the game, A-tier heroes are quite effective, but they lack too many other qualities to be included in the S-tier list. No matter where your team is in the game, these are still important bringing up whenever possible.
  • In the endgame, where every stat point matters in all game modes, B-tier units are good, but they don’t stand out.
  • As a general rule, C-tier characters aren’t worth keeping around unless you have a really particular reason for keeping them in your party late in the game.
  • D-tier: It’s best to get rid of these early on in the game’s final stages of grinding. In higher-level combat, they serve no purpose.
