Unofficial Hero Tier List

Unofficial Hero Tier List

Patch 1.22

Last Updated: 09/08/2019

This page consists of 3 level-based tier lists for heroes in AFK Arena. Each hero is rated based on their performance in different types of content. This includes PvE, PvP, Labyrinth (relic content) & the 2 Guild Bosses.

They’re separated into 3 different lists because the power difference of heroes at certain levels varies wildly due to skill unlocks. If you have any suggestions, let us know!

The ratings are entirely subjective. They’re based on the personal opinion of experienced players that are well progressed at all levels of the game. If you think a hero is rated wrong for something, let us know (with proof) and we’ll gladly change it!

And as with any tier list, take it with a pinch of salt. Don’t treat it like the bible of the game. You can progress with most of the heroes eventually, because the level of your heroes is far more important in most cases.

Also keep in mind that the unique thing about AFK Arena is that you can reset the EXP of heroes at any point and level another one. Don’t be afraid to try out different heroes and team comps to progress through the game. You’re not really that invested into any hero until you start consuming other heroes to ascend it.

Things can also get a little more complex once you factor in the bonus for having the same faction heroes in one team. Generally having at least one of the buffs active is recommended.

Rankings

(R) = Relic Dependent (Lab only)

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.

Late Game Tier List (161-240)

This is a tier list for heroes that are viable at late game. It basically excludes all non-ascended heroes that are capped at level 160. The only exception is Arden, whom is still useful beyond his level cap.

I don’t know why but athalia is Realy underpowered Compared to my other hero’s.. is it because she isn’t ascended? Or because of my hero group? The heros I use are :
Rosaline (Elite) lvl 100
Shemira (legendary)lvl 100
Tasi (legendary) lvl 118
lucius (elite)lvl 100
and Athalia(Elite)lvl 100

(I’m deleting this comment once i get an answer)

summae
Guest
summae

If you look at the mid game tier list, you can see Athalia is listed below every other champion you mention. However, from level 161 she is ranked #1. It is more a matter of her skill levels unlocking. At level 101 her judgement skill will stop her target from gaining energy for 5 seconds, and she only gets stronger from there.

I think you need more exp to understand why arthalia is good.. Even if no one tells you reason, You will come here soon to delete this comment.

Can anyone recommend a good team comp for pvp? I’m newish to the game and I don’t really know how to build. Currently I have Ascended: Tasi, Nemora, Saveas, and Rosaline. Unascended: Brutus, Athalia, Mehira, Eironn. These are the ones of note anyway. Other forums have suggested that hendrik and Grezhul are strong but I don’t have much luck with them…

Progression
Guest
Progression

First of all, ascended is the tier of the hero, not how high upgraded they are. Saveas is a Legendary hero while the rest are ascended.

Saveas
Brutus
Tasi
Eironn
Nemora

Try this. Athalia is a beast so you can swap her in for whoever is weakest atm of that team.

Hendrik and Grezhul are both strong, but Grezhul kinda needs his item and hendrik is comp dependant, still decent though.

Who is your main guy in that lineup and how can brutus do much as solo front liner? Wouldnt the other person just die too fast?

Hiya! I was wondering if someone could help my lineups in Challegers’
I have the following heroes:
Mythic: Estrilda, Belinda, Shemira
Leg+: Fawkes
Legendary: Lucius, Khasos x2 (Please don’t comment on that, I wasn’t thinking when I did it), Nemora, Athalia, Grezhul, Niru
Epic+: Kaz, Lyca, Morrus, Mireal, Serius, Tasi

In the cart there’s a way to reclaim your second legendary and get back the parts

FeaturedAshe
Guest

You can only do that if one of your dups is a higher ascension than the other

Inari
Guest
Inari

From what you had I’d go with Shemira and Lucius front line, Fawkes, Belinda and Nemora/ Athalia/ Estrilda backline. Estrilda and Shemira can swap around if you decide the 5th spot is Estrilda. Basically you will do either 3-2 faction bonus, 3-0 or 4-0 faction bonus depending on your gears and ascension. My current team comp is a bit more reliable for pve as it’s fairly strong against team enemy that have around 40% more than my own power rating. They’re Lucius, Shemira, Tasi, Lyca and Nemora. Lots of sustain and CC to kill the enemy.

Dove
Guest

First step: Save up to buy a dupe of Nemora from the Lab store. As soon as you get it (or pull one by luck; make certain she’s on your tavern wilder wishlist), make Nemora an Elite+. When Nemora is ready and you have Ogi at Elite+, IF you don’t have an Elite+ Ira prepared, then downgrade Ira to Elite+. Use some gems to get back any materials that you spent on raising their levels (if any) and sacrifice them both to Nemora. Your goal is to make Nemora Legendary because SHE WILL CARRY YOU TO GLORY. 100% serious because… Read more »

Sorry, since there’s no edit feature, after reading further down, it sounds like Rosaline is great for Wrizz/Soren and she’s really overall support for the DPS (dunno how I forgot that; I read her entry a little while ago but I thought she was a healer when I wrote my first comment.) Not sure how that fares mid-game but can’t hurt to try her out against them and anywhere else. Obviously, if she doesn’t survive then it doesn’t help but I think using her, Nemora, and Saveas is a solid idea, especially in guild hunts. Not sure if you want… Read more »

I just tried Rosaline in guild hunt, she’s freaking strong, she even dealt more damage then my ascended Belinda despite them being same level. My team in Wrizz without Rosaline dealt about 50mil, with Rosaline it shoot up to 85mil+, and also my Bel only usually dealt around 4-5 mil+ damage in Wrizz, but Rosaline dealt around 13+ and she’s only elite btw.

Agate Crosner

Helzium
Guest
Helzium

I passed from about 40m to 85m with Rosaline too. She does almost more damages than my well equiped Ascended 2* 200 Belinda when she has barely no items and is only Epic. Clearly a S+ for the 2 boss fights, Lab and Perks of Time when paired with a decent solo carry like Shem or Thane.

Raynbow
Guest
Raynbow

Belinda has hardcore carried me up to chapter 16 (so, mid and entering lategame), I feel like she probably deserves S tier in campaign at least. Rosaline is going to be S/S+ (wrizz/soren) at the very least too.

Shemira is really good and can carry you through most of the game it’s just getting her can be hard unless you are lucky and summon her a lot. Kaz is really good for lab, if you were to switch either of them out I would say switch Isabella out.

He is immune to charm. If anything he is S on that fight.

Kiop
Guest
Kiop

Not really he’s immune to cc but that’s it. His damage is really mediocre, and his healing barely impact anything and his shield is one target only, and it doesn’t even shield enough like Luci.

Cespie
Guest
Cespie

Also, calling this now, but Rosaline is totally going to be an S tier hero once people get her a bit leveled up. Her attacks do insane amounts of damage (crockery is wicked strong), her CC is consistent, and her Ult compliments certain carries very well.

Oplo
Guest
Oplo

There is also a useful mechanic in her beginning of battle positioning. She can move out of the way of Athalia dive

Cespie
Guest
Cespie

Ira is DEFINITELY higher on the early and midgame tiers. She is easily one of the strongest carries in those brackets. I might even go as far as calling her the second best carry option topped only by Saveas, and Ira may even win the early game on that one (Saveas is the god of the midgame though).

Wacko
Guest
Wacko

Fyi, Mehira is S++ broken tanking hard mode lab wrizz, and Rosaline is absolutely incredible in both guild bosses even unascended. She added about 5m to my shemiras damage. Can’t self heal tho but I was already using nemora there so she lives

Legendary tier heroes don’t go past 160

Cespie
Guest
Cespie

Considering that stats is his whole thing, and that he caps at level 160… very low.

Very few 160 heroes work beyond 160. Arden is the odd one out, his OP CC is great for a good while after his level lacks behind.

Jun
Guest
Jun

Saveas’ like all legendary+ heroes max out at level 160. So even if you give him the best possible and highest enhanced gear, he’s essentially capped out. By lv 180+ people generally replace Saveas for Fawkes or whatever their team needs that let’s them level the hero up to lv 240.

Salim
Guest
Salim

Why is Estrilda rated this low? She does good dmg and has good abillities imo. Can somebody explain please?

Cespie
Guest
Cespie

She dies very easily. I think she is better than this list gives her credit, but she isn’t super reliable. I have however used her quite a lot in PvE pushing, so I’d give her an S there.

jun
Guest
jun

Estrilda is great early game, because she’s kind of over powered in the beginning. But her growth doesn’t add up to early game power. Where she lacks, is lack of ability to work well as a team, she has lower stats later in, she wanders off too far especially with her special(which mind you only works on whatever’s in front) and is generally one of the first characters to die. She’s a very unpopular choice for most teams once you hit level 160+.

Rowan being just B tier on Wrizz is just criminally inaccurate, my teams across 6 alts are on the verge of getting to lvl 160 with some having lvl 161 Shemira or Belinda or both, and recently I’ve been swapping out L\L+ lucius for E Rowan on almost all of them, since he can heal and gives so much energy per ult it’s insane, his skill to burn energy to survive also keeps him alive even at E. In general the damage increase from ditching Lucius for even E Rowan can get me at least 1.5 mil damage increase, mainly… Read more »

Hauk
Guest
Hauk

Yes, Rowan is a battery, that is to say he generates energy for the team. In fact, I would go as far as to say- he is superior to Lyca in terms of energy generation, and this is exactly what a faction like the Lightbearers needed. He doesn’t have the haste component in exchange for more energy production, making him perfect for tanks who don’t focus on attacking for their energy but rather getting hit, and for high dmg ult units that rely on their ult for their dmg output, like Belinda. A particularly nasty comp would be Lucius/Hendrick in… Read more »

Personally I prefer Khasos

You'reFriend
Guest

if you are planing to use one as fodder, DON’T! but if not do Khasos, his new personal weapon gives him godly damage

Cespie
Guest
Cespie

Warek seems to be a popular choice for end-game PvP, but for everything else, I don’t think he is amazing. Maybe the Mauler Tower too? Either way, never been a huge fan of Khasos. He is only really good for carrying, and there are much better carries out there.

Adroxis
Guest
Adroxis

I personally love Warek for Wrizz/Soren. His ability to tank both bosses and distract them while almost never dying helps Shemira pump damage out a lot harder. Plus he is quite good in PvP. On the other hand, Khasos’ new sigil is extremely strong. Still, I would overall prefer Warek since he seems a bit more useful throughout the entire game and you can just buy Khasos in Lab store given enough time and patience.

Kekzkrieger

What are your thoughts of the new hero Rosalin? Personally she carried me a lot in earlier levela not sure in late tho

Cespie
Guest

She seems insanely strong.
I think she is going to be a lot more major than people realize once people start having her leveled. It’s kinda like how a lot of people didn’t have Baden for a while, but now everyone is realizing how insanely good he is in Team Hunting and Lab Wrizz.

Yawgmoth

I think you should wait for Fawkes, since Thane heavily relies on his ultimate and it’s easy to kill him before that.

don’t use Fawkes as fodder, save both! They can both be situational so it’s better to keep both. I made the mistake early game and could’ve had Fawkes at ascended by now but was stupid, i use him all the time now. Thane is really good for guild battles and still has some use even 1 or 2 teirs lower so just wait a bit

Depends. Thane is more of a burst hero who does insane damage. Fawkes does some damage, but I see him as more of a support with his ultimate and CC. Personally, I would go with Thane, but eventually you would want to have both (if you are doing a lightbearer team.)

fawkes ro counter enemy buffs like lucius shield (hi pvp)
thane for boss fights together with rosa so make sure he has enough att in ur team

Why does Belinda get better at Wrizz and worse at the Lab in late game?

Vallkyrie

Because her general utility and damage output gets outmatched by other heroes (shemira) in late game. She is overall good on wrizz mainly because of faction advantage ( wrizz is mauler) and she can constantly buff the main dmg source (shemira).

I can’t agree with Thane being only A rank in PvE and Lab. He’s been my solo carry since I ditched Saveas after lv160 and he’s been an absolute BEAST. I have Shemira, Thane and Brutus at Mythic+ and I’ve swapped Shemira and Thane multiple times where Thane gets me so much further compared to Shemira. I get loads of scenario’s where Thane is the last one standing and he’ll just wipe the entire enemy team due to his ult window where he simply can’t be hit(timing is key). His Execution heals him up almost completely and procs within a… Read more »

I would agree that Thane is S on pve – if you pair him with fawkes to reduce targets.
he can dodge CC like Ulmuses if you put him in the front and let the tank walk up behind him. also take a few hits for your tank before moving elsewhere. his potential to win clutch 1v3 and finish the stage where shemira just gets ganked make him stand out as a carry. also his dodge / crit streaks make him able to succeed (with many tries) where it seems impossible at first glance.

Hey guys. I need some advice. I currently have a Shemira at Mythic status and I have a Ferael and an Isabella who I can use to ascend Shemira, but I don’t know which one I should use, if any! Any thoughts?

Dove
Guest

I’d sacrifice Isabella. In theory, it’s not until sometime after level 161 for Isabella to be good, whereas Ferael is good sometime before that and is overall better.

Dont kill any ascended tier hero. From those that you mentioned upgrade shemira, always shemira she is broken af.

Don’t sacrifice ascended tiers. Go for fodder. You’ll regret it later.

Gorvo seems like a CC machine; lots of stuns, taunts enemies, and has a massive shield + deflection of damage. Is he really not S tier at least?

Sraxyr
Guest

S Tier is overpowered, I don’t think he is overpowered at all. Compraed to other S Tier heroes he is just decent.

is numisu really that bad i have found him very very useful until now cuz i got a supposedly better healer but idk his totems made it very useful cuz the heros would be very distracted and the were putting out some heaviy damage as well as heals. what is everyone else es thoughts?

Cespie
Guest

He relies too heavily on his own stats to actually be good, and you don’t really have good stats on him. So, he just isn’t a good support because his spells requires him to be focused as a carry, which is just plain bad.

Hi I find this tier list extremely useful. Thanks for all the hard work of getting this together.

When do you think you can up Rowans ratings? Really looking forward to hearing what the experts think of him thanks

Cespie
Guest
Cespie

Rowan can be S+ in the right team, but it’s too early to see for now. There’s already people having great success combining him with Rosaline in a carry team, so I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Rowan in about a month.

I’m finding Lucius is a huge anchor against Wrizz late game and not in a good way. He does next to no damage and his healing and shields are no longer needed. An S for a completely unnecessary waste of a team slot is way too high. You could sub in Skreg and do better.

Aetherius

I find that lucius is great v wrizz as long he’s the only healer. His shields and the regen from it can keep squishy dps’ alive through wrizz’s AOE attacks

Cespie

At around 180-220 teams, I am running 0 healers, and my team usually only dies at the last 5-10 seconds, if at all. I recall that healers were pretty much mandatory earlier on, but it’s not the case late-game, because the dps doesn’t climb as fast as the armor and HP apparently.

robin
Guest

honestly hes one of my highest ascension heroes with (cause my mawler pulls suck) and he does nothing for me but die almost immediately. I guess mine is only 180 tho so. maybe he gets way better but looking at his skill unlocks theyre nothing that drastic.

I reckon rowan is an S+ if not S tier hero mid game and late game, not sure about early game but rn around stage 16, Legendary rowan is carrying. Helps keep frontline alive and let’s backline do their damage. He also heals with potions when he us dead. Healing 40% max health of any character at level 201 makes him so good even at lower ascension.

I must agree with you. The overall CC he brings is just over 9000!

Is Thane really only C for lab after 160? He gets some good sustain at 141 if I remember correctly

robin
Guest

Yeah i use Thane on my regular team and in lab (+ Shemira Tasi Nemora Lyca) lvl 200 and I find he works quite well. Duras eye is bomb on him, cause he heals and hastes every time he crits. i mean shemira would like it as well but shes still awesome with sword. I can clear hard mode easy and he works great for wrizz boss (unlike the wilders)

Lewis Byrd

With his new artifacts, his crits are devestating. His lab rating needs adjusted

Why mehira not s+ shes better than athalia, she has probably most powerful ult and its easier to ascend her because of ezizh

I just started playing yesterday but Kasos seems really underwhelming to me (especially because he leaves his preferable position with his first ability),does he really get this good?

deeptootz
Guest
deeptootz

Khasos so far is the 3rd best mauler overall. He gives a ton of life leach for your entire team, recieves buffs from the library, and is a solid hybrid between dps/tank. His active gives him damage reduction and haste so he can survive and proc is again. I have him ascended 4* and his best position seems to be in the back middle position to make use of his throwing axe ability.

might i ask what makes gorvo is a-tier worthy on mid-late game? i get he’s super new, but its just that the rest of the newer units have all been placed s-tier. and quite high for that matter. there must be something in is skill set that immediately doesn’t get full points, and i’d like to know what.
