Feature Unlock Requirements

Updated for Patch 1.19.

Many features of AFK Arena are either locked behind your campaign progression or VIP level.

This is a list of all requirements to unlock each feature.

Keep in mind that the VIP features are purely for convenience rather than something actually required.

Note: I didn’t personally find most of the data for this. That credit goes to pas#0666 on the AFK Arena Discord. Thanks for taking the time and effort to make this guide!

How do I progress to chapter 18? It’s locked and I can’t figure out how to open it.

you need to beat 16-12 for mythic afk rewards, not 16 11

In game, it says 16-11.

Go to the heroes tab, select a hero and in the top right corner there is a little lock you can unlock.

Mythic Gear from AFK Rewards – shouldn’t this be complete 16-12? who actually obtained a drop before that?

“Legendary+ Gear from AFK Rewards – Complete Stage 11-18”

I doubt this. Im at Stage 11-20 and theres not even normal Legendary gear dropping from AFK. All im getting all day everyday is white, green and blue… and sometimes very rarely purple.
legendary and legendary+ does not drop from AFK for me at all ever.

Anecdotal evidence is the best evidence. For real though, it’s rng and the chances are low.

Ugh, it will take SO LONG to get too the stargazer. I`m on stages 10-5 rn and I have a streak of 5, 10x summons with no elites. I probably wont make to there. sad

Im a f2p player but i make it to the chapter 16 – 20. Just try harder and may the luck of the draw be with you.

Stargazer is like a big casino and given your luck I wouldn’t spend gems on it. You can get most of the rewards in AFK or guild store or labyrinth. So don’t be sad you are not missing much. Focus your gems and do 10 pulls.

Thank you people’s for the encouraging words and may the luck of the draw be with you both 🙏

I unlocked it just now and it’s actually 2% chance for a specific hero and 0.8% each for a guaranteed elite hero from each faction (3.2% total) so it’s only 5.2% for elite heroes, and considering it costs 5000 gems for a 10x pull, the normal tavern pulls are most cost efficient…

It unlocked for me, and know this: you’re not missing out. I have the server’s Wilders leader in my clan (s143, Bleek), and even he says that he cannot get through it without using several of Dura’s Tears. The challenge spike is absurd. I tried it once and went through 5 Dura’s Tears despite a very strong Saveas, Shemira and Lucius on my squad. The rewards are not worth the time investment. Hope it opens up for you eventually though, so you can test it yourself, but be warned: you will not get as much rewards as you would going… Read more »

Lab hard mode is only on lab lvl3 so you need to pass the first two levels. Also wait for the lab to refresh, you’ll get a hard mode only in a new one. It’s not that hard tho, I passed it without any tears kinda from a first try (I guess I restarted once or something). Just take good relics on floors 1 and 2.

Just a little tip, the graveborn hero Baden absolutely melts Wrizz, so if you own him or see him in the carriage, try him out.

Hey! Why some people say mythic gear drops after clearing 16-12 . And here is stated that I have to complete 16-11. Which one is true? Thank you!

I feel like at this stage it’s a guaranteed gear, i have seen so many people getting one of these legendary gear at the 8’s stages, myself included
