Burning Brute Teams

A new event has arrived in AFK Arena! It’s extremely similar to the previous Phantom of Horror’s Eve Event.

You can acquire currency by attacking a boss called the Burning Brute. It can be fought once per day. The more damage you can do to him, the more currency you’ll obtain.

The currency is called Astrobells and it can then be exchanged for rewards. The maximum amount you can obtain in one day is 100.

Burning Brute

This is the boss of the event. He’s active for 12 days once it starts.

Burning Brute 100% Teams

Here are some team comps that have obtained 100 bells from the Burning Brute. You’ll likely have different results depending on your own heroes ascension level, however this might give you a good idea on which heroes to use.

For teams featuring Rosaline, always put Dura’s Blade on the hero you want her to follow. Dura’s Eye is the best artifact to use on herself.

SkillDescription

Doze

When the Burning Brute's health falls below 80% and 50% it falls asleep for 5 seconds. If the Brute is dealt damage that exceeds 10% of its total health it will awaken and use a more ferocious method of attacking its enemies. (The Brute will awaken naturally on its own after a certain duration of time if it is not triggered by damage.)

Flame Breath

The Brute breathes fire out of its mouth, inflicting damage on its enemies. Once the Brute awakens from its "Doze" state it receives a new type of ability that causes the ground below its enemies' feet to burn, dealing AoE damage to them.

Blaze Barrier

The Brute summons a fiery barrier around itself at the beginning of battles that is able to reduce the damage of all incoming attacks which come from outside of the shield by 80%. Shield is deactivated while the Brute's “Doze" ability is being used.
Lore

The Burning Brute, a creature not of this world. An unknown beast that appears to be neither wholly reptile nor mammal. It possesses a large head and thick skin. It is extremely fierce and should be approached with extreme caution.

— by Halueth Vahana, Unknown Esperian Creatures

When the space continuum was ripped apart, extra-dimensional creatures started appearing all over the land. It was first thought that most of these beings were great, noble warriors, but it has became apparent that they weren’t the only ones that came along for the ride.

The creature, with no real name other than its nickname “Burning Brute” or the “Nian Monster” in the Far East, most likely hails from a hellish landscape. It possesses a natural ability to breathe fire from its lungs. The creature is extremely violent and views all other creatures as enemies, not too unlike the Hypogean invaders.

It has terrorized countless villages and hamlets since its arrival in Esperia. The creature’s stocky stature and frighteningly sharp horns have left a trail of destruction all over the land.

The denizens of Esperia have made a concerted effort to slay the beast, but due to its powerful constitution it has proved very difficult to slay. The best that they Burning Brute can hope for is to temporarily drive the creature away.

Thankfully, for the majority of the time the beast remains in a long slumber and only awakes once a year to scavenge for food. The folk know that this time is coming and try to prepare as best they can for the inevitable destruction that will be wrought. Thus, the passing of each new year is now closely tied to this fiery beast. fiery beast.

Once the beast returns to its dormant state, the people of Esperia rejoice and celebrate by feasting upon the finest delights in the realm. However, the question always remains.

Will the Burning Brute return next year? Only time will tell.

Event Lore

Since it arrived through the broken space-continuum, the creature continues to wreak havoc in the nearby the ancient ruins of Esperia. Efforts to slay the creature were unsuccessful, but a weakness was discovered by a Wilder Zoologist: sound.

Armed with this knowledge, the astrobells were created by the best craftsmen in Esperia. The astrobells were distributed throughout the realm, ensuring that every village and town had one, giving the helpless townsfolk a chance of survival against the beast. Unfortunately, the creature is smarter than it looks. It laid waste to the craftsmen’s workshop and took with it the astrobells.

The craftsmen entrusted the Durri hunter, Vurk, with the task of tracking down the creature in order to find its lair. Once he had located its lair, the craftsmen set a bounty on the creature. Adventurers are able to reclaim the astrobells will be rewarded handsomely for their efforts.

In-game Rules

Players may do battle with the Burning Brute once per day while the event is running.

Injuring the Burning Brute will cause it to drop event items called Astrobells.

Astrobells can be collected and exchanged for a variety of rewards.

The Burning Brute’s strength is determined by each player’s own combat rating.

Players can choose to repeat battles without the deduction of any battle attempts, however the rewards earned in the previous battle will subsequently disappear.

Who is better to take Rosalyn or Brutus for bells?
I read sho brutus is not a cake in lategame. Why and whether it is worth collecting it then?
How does rosalina manifest itself in lategame?

Not sure if a bug or a feature, but you can use Nara in the middle back position to pull the brute forward little by little so the front row will enter the barrier.

I’m using 4 accounts, 2 of em low lvl, and i’m getting 100% with all of em every day without twins and Lorsan. Every team uses Rosaline though, so it may be difficult without her (one of my teams does it while she boosts Rowan though, so could still work). Best setup without twins at around lvl 145-180 for me is Baden, Rosaline, Rowan, Wu Kong (he is great for this btw, also using em on all accs), and Estrilda works the best for me, but she can be replaced by Lyca or Lorsan, just need more reps to get… Read more »

I got 100% on my alt using: Wu Kong (L), Rosaline (E+), Warek (L), Estrilda (E+), and Rowan (E+). Wu Kong absolutely shreds this boss, assuming he’s at a decent ascension level. I’d imagine Baden would have the same effect. Basically, get Rosaline onto either Wu Kong or Baden and watch the boss get melted.

My 100% formation was all level 200:
Rowan L+, Lorsan E, Kaz E+, Rosaline L+, Estrilda L+

Blade on Kaz, Call on Rosaline which MUST follow Kaz in the bubble. Enjoy!!!

You can´t buy them the best chances for hypogeans are the elite hero stones to summon, you can just put the brutus and rosaline on wishlist and hope to summon them ^^

Free is better than none. if you have them already, then get something else. I have most of them but I still need tons of fodder, so i’m going for scrolls. This is better than no event =P
