PvE Hero Tier List

PvE Hero Tier List

This is a hero tier list for PvE content in AFK Arena. It’s aimed at each heroes performance in the campaign stages and king’s tower floors.

If you’re looking for a comprehensive list of ratings for all content, then check out the main AFK Arena Tier List page.

The list has rating for 3 different level brackets:

Early Game (1-60)
Mid Game (61-160)
Late Game (161-240+)

You can select filters for the heroes based on Faction, Class, Rarity & Role.

Heroes classed as “Legendary+” heroes are capped at level 160 and therefore are not viable at late game. The only exception is Arden.

Rankings


Tier S++ – Broken.
Tier S+ – Very Overpowered.
Tier S – Overpowered.
Tier A – Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
Tier B – Slightly Underpowered.
Tier C – Underpowered.
Tier D/E – Very Underpowered.
Tier F – The Worst.

I heard Vedan has been nerfed. Is he still S rank for PVE 61-160 or drop to B or A rank? As well as for PVP is Vedan still A for 61-160 and Silvina is a B? If you need to choose either Silvina or Vedan to use through 61-160, will you pick Silvina or Vedan and why?

Vedan is still a great choice up to 160 in pvp and pve. Easy to ascend and his invulerability isnt nerfed by fawkes.

I wish all heroes could go to Level 240 and be ascended instead of the few that are there. It would greatly expand diversity and the roster, especially if they gave bad heroes such as Ankhira, Niru, and Angelo another ability and a bit of a reworking to make them viable because they do look really nice! They shouldn’t let these great champion concepts go to waste at 160.

Good idea, though Its up to the Creators

Brutus is a D for early game? I can’t really confirm for myself since I don’t have him yet, but I’ve read a ton of guides saying he’s amazing for all stages of the game.

I also feel this contradicts the guide you have on his character.
“If you’re new to the game, pray that you get him early because he can carry a team pretty far.”

You can blow pass lvl 60 really easy, at most only a couple of days.

Thane is rated A when I got to chapter 16 from 12 using him at 161-180 lvl and with 141-151 lvl elite Brutus, elite+ Tasi, leg+ Arden, elite Lyca. Now on 16-36 with 157+ lvl support heroes. Thane is best solo carry for PVE IMO.

Update, pushed to 18-20:
Thane ascended 192lvl (full faction mythic gear except boots).
Brutus mythic, Lyca elite+ 160lvl

Highly disagree with Shemira’s early ranking. She carried me so hard. It wasn’t until 101 that Saveas even *approached* her damage in fights. Yes she doesn’t have her consistent life-leech until later, but 1-60 she’s still S-tier. At *least* A-tier, but she carried me the whole way, where Saveas was mostly a disappointment.

I also disagree with Athalia at a D from 1-60. B at minimum, and I would argue A. She’s still strong in the early levels.

trust me

trust me

no bro she was just overleveled. Can you be trustworthy ? no. In early stages Saveas has just more impact (he can actually solo) while shemira doesnt have her fourth ultraimportant ability.

Heroes can no longer go past their level cap even with the resonating crystral, meaning that Arden can no longer go beyond level 160. It’s sad but it Arden is really no longer viable much into late game unless you can stop him getting hit entirely sad
