Update 1.16 Patch Notes

Update 1.16 was a major patch for AFK Arena.

It was released on 26th April, 2019.

It introduced the first ever Hypogean hero “Ezizh” to the game. There was also changes to the guild wars event, new campaign chapter, quality of life features and some new neat battle stats.

Below you’ll find the full patch notes for it.

New Heroes


Added the new Hypogean hero: Ezizh – Hellborn

New Campaign Chapter


Added a new chapter to the campaign – Chapter 25 – Stormbreath Fortress, while also having adjusted the difficulty for certain stages of chapter 24.

Guild Wars Event Changes


Made several changes to the Guild Wars rules and improved the matching system to make it more balanced. All heroes now start at the same level, reducing hero level disparities.

Added a personalized signature feature that can be displayed on the player details page.

New Level Up Feature


Added a new level up feature, which allows players to level up their heroes to their max level with one touch of a button when there is a level disparity of 100 levels or more, instead of holding down the level up button for a longer duration.

New Retry Function


Added a new retry function which can be unlocked after completing Chapter 3, allowing players to “Try Again” if they fail to successfully pass a stage.

New Battle Report


Added a battle statistics page which allows players to see how much damage their heroes have dealt/received and also see the total amount of HP a hero has healed others for.

Relic Adjustments


Adjusted several relics within the Arcane Labyrinth and Peaks of Time:

  • Increased Power: Silver Arrow, Restorating Crystal, Lightbearers Loyalty, The Coral Vow.
  • Reduced Power: Spider Thread Gloves, Pendant of Force.
  • Removed: Severance, The Huntress, Ferael’s Dread, Warek’s Might.

To me lucius is bugged out from the latest patch… animation of his healing in x2 speed is bugged… he wont heal a unit or himself if he is attacked exactly before execution of healing.
In PVP arena… where every cast should work… he wont put shield up many times just because he is attacked 0.1 second after he cast his main skill… on x1 speed it works fine.. but x2… a lot of champions are bugged out

Where is the rest of the patch notes? I noticed some changes for example Lucius, less delay between skills, quicker animations and best of all he can ult during the usage of his shield. Why was this not mentioned? Still need to fix Brutus bug though, he does not retain 1 hp like he should.

He still can’t use his ult during shield. not sure where you heard that but unless you can link it, you’re just making it up in your head.

Just a quick question, i dont see a team building guide any where, but when making a team, should you have 2 tanks in the front? or just 1, and if just 1 tank, what should the other front be, a solo carry type character or a support?/?

I would definitely have 2 tanks. It has worked wonders for me so far since they can protect all your backline heros good. Solo carry heros protect themselves very well but not those behind them as with vedan for example his ultimate makes him move away from the line and opens a hole in defence. No more then 2 tanks though since you need to have good damage aswell. (Been playing since February 25, am on stage 11-26)

to answer i would highly recommend having a single faction like the light bearers for instance to get maximum team bonus also i would do two tanks a healer, a mage, and lastly a mobile assassin like champ.

They need a major update to add much more celestial and hypogean heroes.

Yes, it’s almost impossible to make the celestial ascended because there is only one. You would
need LOTS of them.(I might be wrong about this…)

Well, don’t u see that crew which maintain this site, are probably related but not officialy to the Lilith Games, the creators of the game. I’ve been thinking of access needed to the game to function, cause him take too much permissions.

The official site of Lilith Games is out, btw.

The game is amazing and i will continue to play, tho.

Great news, but I think that most of people are waiting for re-work on summon drop rates. It’s awful when you buy gems and get 8 green and 2 blue heroes, such drops will make money spending worthless.

I agree, I calculated the total easter eggs you can get for 8 days and it is just 300+ at most. I think you can only get 450 when you are on a higher vip where your bounty list gain more quests and also soren everyday. Maybe they will gift you eggss? IDK, looks really hard to get with the rates.

Better question for you, why the flip did they make Athalia 450 Eggs right when the event starts? Like talk about a kick in the taint.
