Tier List – Best Heroes
This is an end-game focused Tier List for AFK Arena.
It’s mainly based on heroes at their maximum rarity and level. As only certain heroes can become Mythic, that was a huge factor when making the list.
It’s also purely based on my personal opinion. There’s isn’t really much of a community for the game right now, as it is fairly new so getting feedback on which heroes is the best is a little more difficult. So with that said, if you like a certain hero and you think it’s good, then play it!
Keep in mind, the unique thing about AFK Arena is that you can reset the XP of heroes at any point and level another one. That means if you get a good hero that can’t be mythic, don’t be afraid to stick with it as you need a strong roster to progress through the game.
Also note that things can 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 recommend.
Overall, Maulers & Graveborn seem to be the strongest heroes at the moment. Mainly because Brutus & Shemira are very powerful and capable of carrying teams. Brutus is especially good and almost a requirement to have. Also Maulers are the only faction that can have 5 Mythic+ heroes.
