Store Guide

There’s 5 different stores in AFK Arena. Each one stocks different items and requires specific currency to buy them.

They’re all in the same “Store” building on the map, but some of them can also be accessed via other buildings as well.

General Store

This store stocks a range of different items that can be purchased with gold and diamonds. The goods for sale refresh on a daily basis.

What To Buy?

The best things to buy from the store are Hero’s Essence, Poe Coins & Elite Hero Soulshards x5. Only buy them with gold though, not diamonds (unless you’re a spender).

Gold and purple emblems are also good value for gold.

Mythic gear and upgrade stones are available from the store for diamonds, but it is not worth buying. Nothing else is really worth buying either.

You can refresh the items anytime by spending diamonds. The more times you do this, the higher the cost. However, the cost will reset daily. The initial refresh requires 100 diamonds.

Guild Store

The guild store only stocks gear & upgrade stones. They require guild coins to purchase. Guild coins can be acquired by damaging the guild bosses.

This is the best source of gear in the game, as it’s completely free and easy to obtain.

Legendary+ gear will be purchasable from here once a player has beaten Chapter 10 – Stage 22 of the campaign.

Mythic gear will be purchasable from here once a player has beaten Chapter 12 – Stage 2 of the campaign.

You can refresh the items anytime by spending diamonds. The more times you do this, the higher the cost. However, the cost will reset daily. The initial refresh requires 100 diamonds.

What To Buy?

It’s generally recommended to only buy Mythic gear and upgrade stones from here, legendary gear isn’t worth it.

Barracks

The barracks stocks Rare & Elite Soulstones, Twisted Essence & specific heroes. These items require Hero Coins to purchase them.

Hero coins can be obtained by retiring common heroes in the rickety cart.

This store resets once every month, and the heroes available never change, they just reset.

You can refresh the items anytime by spending 1000 diamonds.

What To Buy?

Elite Hero Soulstones.

Labyrinth Store

The Labyrinth Store stocks specific heroes, Rare Soulstones, Hero’s Essence & Red/Dimensional Emblems. The items require labyrinth tokens to purchase.

Labyrinth tokens can be obtained by defeating bosses & floors in the labyrinth.

The store on a same reset timer as the barracks, which is once a month. The items & heroes available never change, they just reset. You can refresh the items anytime by spending 1000 diamonds.

What To Buy?

What you prioritize to buy from this store will depend on if you want the limited dimensional hero or not.

Excluding the limited dimensional hero (Ezio for now), the general prio list is:

If you’re completely new to the game, buy the hero’s essence. 3k will be a huge boost.

For heroes:

1 – Shemira (If she’s your carry choice for early/mid-game), otherwise never buy her.
2 – Arthur
3 – Wu Kong
4 – Thoran
5 – Nemora/Skreg/Estrilda
6 – Other heroes are generally not worth buying.
7 – Blue hero shards are not worth buying.

Red & dimensional emblems are good to buy, but it really depends on if you still need heroes from here.

Challenger Store

This store stocks specific Elite copies of heroes. It requires currency that can only be obtained by holding a certain rank in the Legends’ Challenger Tournament. The currency is accumulates constantly, based on your current ranking.

It takes A LONG time to acquire the currency, even if you’re rank 1. Expect to wait months to purchase even one hero.

The heroes available to purchase never change, unless they specifically add more in a new patch. You can refresh the items anytime by spending 100 diamonds.

What To Buy?

This will depend slightly on if you want to buy the limited dimensional hero.

Generally the best value for money are the faction emblems. However, being able to choose to buy a specific Celestial/Hypogean hero is unique.

General Priority:

1 – Ezizh
2 – Athalia
3 – Flora
4 – Faction Emblems x25

It’s not recommended to buy other “normal” heroes, but Eironn & Rosaline are definitely the standout ones to pick if you did.
