AFK Arena Tier List

AFK Arena Tier List

Patch 1.51

[Total: 2340   Average: 3.5/5]

Last Updated: November 17, 2020

If you’re on mobile, click the “+” sign next to the hero for Lab, Wrizz & Soren rankings.

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

They’re separated into 4 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

Tier S+ – Overpowered.
Tier S/S- – Great, core of many teams.
Tier A+/A/A- – Good, but not the best.
Tier B+/B – Average, underused.
Tier C – Below average, rarely used.
Tier D/E/F – Never worth using.

Endgame Tier List (300+)

Hero tier list for endgame content. It assumes that heroes are Level 300+. 5* Ascended, Mythic+ Gear, +30 SI & 3 Mythic Furniture.

This list is generally the best to gauge the overall power and longevity of heroes in the game.

Late Game Tier List (161-240)

List is outdated for now, check the endgame one for updated ratings. This is for heroes between levels 161240. Why are certain ones missing? Because some of them are capped at level 160 and are mostly useless beyond this. The only exception is Arden, as his CC is still quite powerful for a while.

Mid Game Tier List (61-160)

List is outdated for now, check the endgame one for updated ratings. This tier list is for heroes between levels 61160. “Legendary” heroes such as Saveas will peak in power here as they can’t level higher than 160. It should be noted that certain heroes, such as Shemira, only really start to shine at level 141. It’s just kinda hard to fit all of this into one list.

Early Game Tier List (1-60)

List is outdated for now, check the endgame one for updated ratings. This tier list is about ranking heroes based on how fast they can clear very early game content. It’s for heroes from levels 1 to 60. Keep in mind that the power of these heroes will change drastically beyond level 61. Don’t take this list too seriously.
