Useful Team Comps
This is a list of useful team comps for AFK Arena. Some of them have been personally used and tested by me, all the way up to chapter 26. Others have been submitted by players whom have had good success with them in various parts of the game.
Generally speaking, when making a team you want to have at least 3 heroes of the same faction for the bonus. You might have to use a comp with no faction bonus on some campaign stages though, it really depends on which heroes you have available to use.
If you want yours added, you can submit it here.
Note: The in-game team images are just to show what the team formation looks like, you don’t need the heroes at the levels or rarity shown there.
Brutus | Lyca | Nemora | Eironn | Tasi
PvE/PvP (Level 161+)
This is another variant of the typical all stars team. Replacing Shemira with the new hero Eironn. The added bonus of having him in this team that you’ll get the 4+1 faction buff.
The basic idea behind this team is that Eironn will pull in 3 enemies at the beginning of the battle so that they’re all grouped up in the middle. This allows Brutus to whirlwind the 3 heroes, and then Eironn will proceed to absolutely annihilate them with his tornado ultimate ability.
Placing Eironn in either position 4 (preferred) or possibly at the the front (1 or 2) is extremely important for this comp to work to maximum effect. That’s because he will only pull 3 enemies when in those positions.
The weakness to this team is that Eironn may just instantly die to the enemies pulled. He relies on dodge rating, so this team may not work as well at lower levels if he has bad gear. Placing Lyca in the front is also relying on dodge a bit.
When this comp does work, however, you’ll see Eironn do some insane damage.
Lucius | Thane | Fawkes | Isabella | Shemira
Guild Boss: Wrizz
This is the comp I usually use for Wrizz. Each one of these heroes is very strong against guild bosses in general. You’ll also get the added 3+2 faction bonus.
Here’s an example of the kind of damage output it can produce at endgame:
The obvious weakness here is the damage of Lucius, however some of the heroes just won’t survive until the end without some kind of support and Lucius is probably the best option.
Fawkes can also be replaced with Grezhul, which maintains the faction bonus and his minions will get shielded by Lucius. The damage difference won’t be considerable though. Raine is also a possibility.
Brutus | Shemira | Nemora | Lyca | Tasi
PvE/PvP (Level 161+)
This is an extremely strong comp that can carry you through endgame. It’s the main team I’ve used all the way up to chapter 24+.
You can play it in two ways: Brutus + Shemira at the front, or Brutus + Lyca at the front.
The only downside to this team is the lack of an off-tank. If the enemies front-line have high enough burst the whole team general crumbles pretty fast. You need Shemira to survive long enough to cast her ultimate ability for this team to work well.
The same goes for enemy teams with Athalia in them as at high level she will one-shot anything but Brutus. You can play the RNG game and possibly get through it, but it isn’t ideal.
If you’re going to aim for one main team, this is IMO the one to get.
- Brutus – Blade
- Shemira – Backline: Eye / Frontline: Grace
- Tasi – Call
- Nemora – Drape/Vitality
- Lyca – Backline: Eye / Frontline: Grace
The Budget All-Stars
Brutus | Shemira | Nemora | Lyca | Arden
PvE/PvP ( Level 141+)
Exact same concept as the team above, except Arden replaces Tasi.
This used to be my main team before Tasi was released. It’s still very strong, but is limited by Arden’s level. There’s no “Hit-Chance” etc. in AFK Arena so it doesn’t actually matter if he is low level if you’re just using him for CC. However, he will start to get one-shot against certain teams at high level.
TURTLE ALL DAY
Brutus | Lucius | Nemora | Lyca | Tasi
PvE/PvP ( Level 161+)
This is a more defensive focused team that basically relies on stalling the game and letting Brutus do his thing.
It can actually be a really strong comp, especially against damage heavy enemy teams.
You can also replace Brutus with Shemira if she can survive long enough.
P.S. Shout-out to anyone that gets the reference for the name.
Brutus | Grezhul | Ferael | Nemora | Shemira
PvE ( Level 161+)
This is a decent 3-graveborn team that has the usual damage from Brutus / Shemira, plus CC from Ferael & off-tanking from Grezhul.
Nemora can be subbed for other heroes depending on what you need.
I usually use this team when I really need an off-tank on the front-line, but still want Shemira/Brutus/CC & faction bonus.
For The Light
Lucius | Estrilda | Fawkes | Belinda | Thane
PvP ( Level 161+)
If you’re looking for a full lightbearer team then this is probably the one you want. It works really well in PvP, but I haven’t tried it as much in the campaign or king’s tower.
Belinda, Thane & Estrilda all have great synergy together and Fawkes provides good CC. Lucius is the MVP though, I doubt this team would work without his shields and the fact that he can tank pretty well.
Note: Always place Belinda behind Estrilda.
Mid Game Team by
Ezizh | Thane | Nemora | Mirael | Raine
PvE (Level 61-160)
This is the team I’ve been running for a while with pretty good success.
Reason it works so well is Mirael’s Fire shield covers Ezizh long enough to use his pull function which will draw outlier characters towards mid to get caught by Mirael’s ultimate. It’s a great burst damage team. I always make sure Nemora and Ezizh are in opposite corners so if she is getting focused he can pull that enemy away towards mid.
Just thought I would share. It’s been good for me while building out my roster with stronger characters.
F2P Player Comp by Chuhuhu
Shemira | Lucius | Lyca | Nemora | Tasi/Arden
F2P PvE (Stage 17 -24)
As a F2P player, Frontline, I use Shemira and Lucius. Backline, Lyca, Nemora, Arden/Tasi. I’ve been playing for about 3 months now. Not really lucky with hero pull ups. But managed to always purchase Shemira on Labyrinth Store. This team comp would require you to put everything on Shemira.
Lucius, regens energy quickly against enemies about 20+ levels higher. His shield is a life saver not only for your backline but would be enough to make Shemira lasts the whole battle.
I’m not sure if this is really an achievement But I’m at Chap 17 -24. I’m close to completing savage wastes and more than half way the next peak of time stage.
If you’re wondering what are the levels of my team. Shemira Ascended- 198, Lucius Mythic- 161, Lyca Legend – 160, Tasi Elite +- 160, Arden Legend+ -160 and Nemora Legend+ – 160. Always prioritize Shemira, then Lucius.
I hope this helps.
PvP Passive Team by Leviathan
Ulmus | Lucius | Tasi | Nemora | Fawkes
PvP (Guild Wars, Arena)
A simple team recommendation for one to leave on the back burner. It’s always annoyed me that if you run out of time in a battle it’s an automatic loss, even if they’re down to 1 hero or they’re in the process of losing.
This team aims to replicate that effect, not as an active team, but as one of the formations you set for guild battles or the arena and then just forget about.
The setup from 1 to 5 is:
Simple plan, heal a lot (everyone except for fawkes), CC a lot, and run out the clock.
It gets the benefit of the 2-3 faction bonus and fawkes has the added benefit of removing attack buffs.
The largest downside is that it uses characters you may throw into other formations, and the weakest link is definitely Ulmus, but I feel that with everyone else’s sustain and CC layered on top of his own he’ll do fairly well.
Early-Mid Game Team by odra94
Lucius | Brutus | Tasi | Mirael | Shemira
I wanted to see if I could contribute to the community a little. I am currently on level 10-36. I am not sure if this would still be considered early game or if it already went into the mid-levels.
The formation I use is Lucius, Brutus, Tasi, Mirael and Shemira. It does not have any boosts at all from faction bonuses but it has a very large damage output that kills enemies that are higher level than I am. Both Lucius and Brutus tank long enough to have Tasi and Shemira use their specials. This allows Tasi to put everyone to sleep. Mirael does damage from the back and uses her special in the middle which affects the characters in the middle the most once you level her up. She also engulfs Lucius to let him charge his special and heals him slightly. He then activates his special and he heals and blocks damage for everyone. Shemira does damage to everyone and Tasi transports with her butterfly everywhere to distract, heal teammates and damage enemies. Brutus with his last grasp ability survives long enough to let Lucius heal him and then keep dealing damage with his spins and roars.
If I want to make it slightly tankier I change the formation to Lucius, Brutus, Mirael, Tasi and Shemira. Putting Tasi in the middle makes the two in the front have a better life span because the butterfly helps them heal. Everything else pretty much stays the same except that now Mirael might not damage the enemy on the opposite side of the field as much.
This is what has worked for me. I got Shemira, Lucius and Brutus early on and this formation took me through most of the game so far. I have been lucky with gear and starting at around level 9 I started getting legendary gear. All of them are at least Legendary at this point except for Lucius which I still have him Elite+.
Hope it helps.

Meat & Potatoes by Mags
Brutus | Lucius | Saveas | Skreg | Nemora
This is my main team that I’ve been running since I pulled Saveas.
Front lines: Brutus and Lucius
Back lines: Nemora (behind Lucius), Skreg (middle), and Saveas (behind Brutus)
I find a quad-tank team pretty fun to play. Skreg is pretty expendable for the most part and draws most of the action at the beginning of the fight. And his “Payback” ability does decent damage. Brutus and Saveas are godly, with Brutus getting more powerful the deader he is and Saveas almost always having his ult up. Big, meaty tanks (plus a Mauler factional advantage). Yum. Meanwhile, Lucius and Nemora keep everyone from falling down dead on the spot. They’re the potatoes, keeping the meat afloat.
Early Game Team Comp by Rk800
Lucius | Hogan | Shemira | Belinda | Fawkes/Silvina
PvE (Up to Chapter 9)
I’m a fairly new player, who has been using Elite Lucius, Elite+ Hogan front line, with Elite Shemira, Legendary Belinda and rotating Elite Fawkes/ Legendary Silvina, depending on level.
This has worked for me pretty well, carrying me through to Ch.9 with 20 to 30k difference in power between my team and the levels. Fawkes ability to delay an enemy from attacking really helps your tanks survive longer, which is crucial. It helps Lucius get his shields off. If he is mowed down before then, usually, the team crumbles.
It’s OK if Hogan dies early, but not ideal. When Shemira and Belinda get their ults off, usually, your team can mop up the rest. But if the tanks are down before Lucius has got the shields up, then you’re toast. This comp can be really good, bus is heavily dependent on equipment and RNG. You’ll have to try a ton when you get to Ch7,8 and now I’m on 9.
The placement for them is dependent on the team you’re facing. Typically, you place Lucius where he takes enough damage to get the shields up as fast as possible. Belinda is placed where you want the enemy tank melted, or the enemy damage dealer is positioned, so they can go head to head. Shemira can be anywhere but front. She isn’t upgraded to tank levels this far, at least in my opinion. She is still relevant though, even when she is just elite. She still outdamages Belinda in some matches, even when my Belinda is legendary. Overall strong comp.
Team Comp by Seraph
Lucius | Estrilda | Nemora | Tasi | Arden
Lucius and any off tank up front (Brutus is probably best but I use Estrilda just fine) and Nemora, Tasi and Arden at the back.
You get so much CC from the backline with a small random chance to even get all 5 stunned. And you get quite a good deal of heals from Nemora and Lucius to never die. Got me to top 30 in pvp in my server and after being hard stuck on a chapter, I breezed through 2 full chapters just by adding Tasi when I finally got her.
Light Fighters by Random
Estrilda | Lucius | Belinda | Raine | Athalia
Early-Mid Game Team (Chapter 5 & 6)
This is another full lightbearer team (Sort of): Estrilda, Lucius, In Back: Belinda, Raine, and Athalia.
This is a team that carried me for a couple of stages, mostly with world 5 and 6.
Reason is because Estrilda does high damage (If you upgrade her to Legendary or Elite+). And Belinda supports her with extra damage.
Athalia helps Lucius get more hits so he can get his ultimate ability faster (As long as enemy isn’t too powerful).
Raine supports the frontline by using her ultimate ability so they get more energy to use their own, meaning Lucius can stack his shields.
A good team choice to try.
It’s very hard to get Athalia, but if you get Thane, he can also do a decent job.
Athalia is usually the first one to die, as I have seen in previous battles. But Estrilda can finish them off.
