Resonating Crystal

The Resonating Crystal is an extremely powerful and very unique feature of AFK Arena.

Its existence in the game essentially means that you only ever have to level 5 heroes.

This is a pretty generous feature compared to most games in this genre!

How It Works


You don’t need to place any heroes on the actual pentagram, they will be placed there automatically based on which of your heroes are the current highest levels.

When you add a hero to the resonating crystal, it will instantly be the same level as the lowest level hero on the pentagram.

Heroes placed in the resonating crystal cannot exceed their overall maximum level. As an example, if you’ve got a full team of level 200 heroes and you place Arden in a slot, his level will only be 160. That’s because he can only ascend to Legendary+, which has a level cap of 160.

If you remove a hero from the resonating crystal, there will be a 24 hour cooldown until you can add another hero into that slot. You can however bypass that by spending diamonds.

This does not count heroes that are removed due to being retired, ascended or those that are automatically placed on the pentagram if they are one of the 5 highest level heroes.

Upgrading the Resonating Crystal


Once a player has 5 level 240 heroes on the resonating crystal pentagram, they will unlock a new feature that allows them to directly level up the crystal by consuming Gold, EXP & Hero’s Essence.

At this point, all of the eligible heroes in the resonating crystal will have their levels based on the actual crystal level, rather than the lowest hero on the pentagram.

This allows players to level up their ascended heroes beyond 240.

Each hero owned that has been evolved to ascended will increase the level cap by 5. The current absolute level cap is 360.

Lore


Legend has it that the Resonating Crystal embodies Dura’s soul. It was said that in her dying breath she created the resonating crystal using her divine essence.

Originally the form of a large crystal, it has gradually taken on a dazzling female form over the eons.

The Resonating Crystal is known to emit a brilliant, divine light, which attracts thousands of followers from all over Esperia.

Some believe that the crystal has the ability to strengthen one’s body and mental resolve, but only those whom are deemed worthy will receive its blessing.

Or if you mean the character that’s one of your top levels, then reset in the Rickety Cart.

So if I want to have all my heroes at level one and one at as high as possible, how would I take off the other heros that are level over 200 .

Teishu

You can’t have one hero lvl 200 and others lvl 1. There is restriction of 40 levels which means that if your heroes are 120lvl, you can upgrade one hero to 160lvl. If you want more, you need to upgrade rest of the heroes.
I stuck for a while on lvl 220 for one hero, while the rest was at 180, but now I am waiting for last hero to lvl up to 240 and then the fun will begin.

Newbie question I am currently unable to give several of my key heroes levels of over 100, because I don’t have 5 heroes that are elite+ or better at 101+. That said, I have one of the heroes with long term potential (Lucius) as L100 elite, and I have a hero with no long term potential (Hogan) as legendary at L1 resonated to 100. Would there be any drawback to resetting Lucius to L1 and giving all the resources to Hogan to raise him to 101, and then putting Lucius as one of the resonated heroes? That way Lucius, as… Read more »

Why I cannot level up any more the character I used to level up with the resonating crystal???

Kenis polanco

You have to level the one that’s in the middle or the one that has the numbers in blue also make sure that that character can be levelled or it’s not level to the max if yes then you would have to replace that character

Kenis polanco
Guest
Kenis polanco

to replace the heroes on the top you have to make the ones that you want to be at the top stronger than the ones on the top

Hoyi

If i make 5 rare to elite+, make them all lvl 110, and put a super rare (ex: Burtus) on the resonating crystal. Would I then get a level 110 elite Burtus before I can actual get him to the right tier?

Dornornoston

Yes. The crystal mechanics considers the highest ascension a hero can achieve not the currently ascension level they are

I’ve opened up my crystals max level, now I want to know whether, if I remove one of my five heroes that are natural 240s and referred them, will that revert the crystal to its old state, or is its level permanent now?

deathypoo

*revert, not “referred”

You must maintain the 5 level 240s.

How to i remove the herous from the upper level??

deathypoo
Guest
deathypoo

That upper level is called the “pentagram“. You’d have to reset the hero you want to remove in the Rickety Cart, at which point that hero would be replaced on the pentagram by your next highest level hero.

Alwin T

So does the resonated character get all the skills they would at that level

deathypoo
Guest
deathypoo

Yes they do. Once you’ve put a hero into the Crystal, you never have to level that individual hero again – the Crystal will take care of it all for you.

Regarding upgrading the resonating chrystal.
You say we need gold, exp and hero essence.
But in the picture I only see exp and gold required?
Can you show where and how much hero essence is needed?

Thanks!

Andyy
Guest

So the level is not permanent tho, as I remove the hero they just revert back?

When adding a hero to the crystal their will their stats be the same if you manually upgraded them to any level

deathypoo
Guest
deathypoo

Yes. The Crystal does it all. I thought it didn’t for the longest time, and I kept taking heroes out to manually level them in order to raise the levels of their skills…and then I finally noticed – today! – that that’s totally unnecessary. Their skills rise right along with their level when you put them in the Crystal.

How much resources are needed to level up the crystal once you reach level 240?

Good day. Could you tell me, if I add one of my level 1 hero to resonating crystal and it become for example level 101, will his talents also be leveled up?

William
Guest

Just to double confirm, now I’m also facing level cap issue. If I have the whole team atleast elite +, then the whole team level above 101. Those elite only heroes in pentagram can surpass level 101?

Waiting

I have 3 legendary and 2 legendary+, all at lvl 137 or higher. I put Mehira (Elite+) on the crystal, and she is now lvl 137 too, though she shouldn’t be able to lvl that high. Nice!

If I have all level 200’s and I’m leveling Arden to 160 on the crystal, and let’s say Arden is only an Elite+, If I get him to Legendary, he will still be level 160, but will his stats be better? Or does it not have any effect.

Stats are better.

So essentially, if I want to switch out 2 members of my current team comp, instead of just spending 20+20 diamonds to reset them to lvl 1 and use their materials on the 2 new heroes to get them to the same level, I can instead just level those 2 new heroes in this pentagram, and then when they have the same level as the lowest level heroes in the 5-man team, I can just take those 2 heroes that I want to replace and now reset them instead to get all their materials while my new heroes are already… Read more »

No, you cant take out heroes from Resonating Crystal, it gathers 5 highest lvls of your hero rooster so you dont have a choice there. If you really have to lvl up new hero past lowest of those highest 5 then go ahead and reset but there is no point in that. Only reason I would reset is OCD 😅

bupk1s
Guest
bupk1s

but it says in-game that if one of the 5 heroes get removed due to perhaps me paying 20 diamonds to reset one I dont want to use anymore, this hero will drop to level 1 and no longer be considered among the 5 strongest and instead the one that has been placed in the slot below thats like level 91 will take its place. at least thats how i understand the explaination in-game. so lets say i have 5 heroes of the same level on top (my 5 strongest (level 91)), then i pay 20 diamonds to reset Ira… Read more »

No, hero’s in the resonating crystal can’t be leveled normally unless you remove them first. Nor do they get counted as your five strongest characters. So Shemira wouldn’t get bumped up to count in the five, thus you don’t get free materials. You’d still have to spend the materials on Ira to raise your fifth character up to level 91.

bupk1s
Guest
bupk1s

really poor in-game explaination then.
so whats the point of using this sytem then? seems rather pointless early on and not really useful until you have your entire team already set and max leveled and ascended so if you want to play with different teams for different situations, you dont have to level them.
so essentially, its a late game feature.

Shamus

the team you want to use may not be who you have at the highest ascension, i use an epic brutus on my team but i have legendaries on the crystal so that i can surpass his current level cap.

I just retire 2 of my 150v hero to level up shemira from 160 into 180, but it need other 4 hero on temple to reach 140 first, could you add the guide of resonance levelcap required here? Thx..

“however a hero’s maximum level is still limited by its current ascension tier.”
They really need to fix this or remove this, because currently, if a hero is placed under the crystal, they can level up beyond their current ascension tier max level. An Elite hero can go up to level 120 when the lowest level hero on the pentagram is level 120.

Ivletal

It boggles me you would limit team variety and versatility by limiting characters set for resonating. That means aside from the push to spend to be able to play, team building will be boring and dull. They already suffer lower stats by not being able recieve the bonuses to ascend further. What’s the harm, besides probably your greed, of letting the other possible strategies be a thing. Literally only natural ascended heroes are usable mid game+. Which literally translates to pay to play. Nobody is gonna be able to get 5 mythic heroes by the time they get to 160… Read more »

oh so if put my Elite Brutus which is stuck on the pentagram at level 100 cause i dont have a dupe to ascend him to Elite+, he can actually be level 120 without having to ascend so he can take advantage of the level 101 upgrade?
so just 20 diamonds to reset him and then put him under crystal instead of having him on the actual pentagram would be beneficial then?
