AFK Arena Artifacts

Artifacts are special trinkets that can be equipped by heroes. They provide raw stats and powers.

Uniquely, the only way to obtain artifacts is from the Peaks of Time. Dura’s artifacts are found within the Historic Ventures, while class exclusive artifacts are from the much harder Trials of God section.

They do not work in certain game modes, such as the Legends’ Championship and The Abyssal Expedition.

Hero Artifact Equip Priority

As the choice of artifacts for heroes is quite limited in battles, you’ll need to decide which ones to use.

Want to increase a heroes damage? Use either Eye, Blade, Conviction, Windbinder (Mage), Chaos Bringer (Warrior) or Shroud of Verdure (Ranger).

Want to increase a heroes survivability? Use either Grace, Chalice of Vitality, Drape or Barricade (Tank).

Want to increase a heroes utility? Use either Call or Tidebearer (Support).

Waistband of Resilience is more of a niche artifact, and should generally only be used when you team has CC. However, if that’s the case it can be the best for some tanks.

Below is a priority list with the top 3 artifacts for each hero. Credit to SilentBobUS for putting the majority of this list together!

Dura’s Artifacts

Dura’s Artifacts are obtained from certain historic adventures within the Peaks of Time.

Any hero can equip these. They were initially unique, but now can be upgraded so up to 8 heroes can use each one at the same time.

These artifacts were the first ever introduced into the game, but many of them still remain extremely strong.

Class Artifacts

Class specific artifacts can be obtained from the Trials of God adventures, found in the Peaks of Time.

These artifacts can only be worn by a certain class, however up to 8 of each said class can wear them at the same time.

They’re leveled up by using Class Exclusive Artifact Fragments. This currency comes from AFK rewards.

It’s important to note that all class exclusive artifacts use this currency, so you’ll have to choose which one to level first.

Class Artifact Upgrade Priority

This upgrade priority list is based on the stats they provide, and also by how many heroes the artifact is best in slot for.

In the end though, it will purely come down to how many viable heroes you have of each class.

The first choice is either Windbinder or Chaos Bringer, depending on how many mages or warriors you use. They’re both very good artifacts.
