AFK Arena Tier List 2020 – Best Heroes(A-Tier) –

  • Ukyo Tachibana
  • Oden – Bitterblight
  • Skriath – AoE
  • Rigby – Tank
  • Vedan – AoE, Tank
  • Grehzul 
  • Khasos – Continuous DM G

Hogan Vs Thoran Vs Grehzul
  • Hogan – Max Level – 160.
  • Thoran – Max Level – 240

In the early game, Hogan can help you a lot, but in the late game, Thoran or Grehzul would be useful. Hogan has some good CC skills such as stun, knockback, and more. His defensive stats are also pretty good. It’s a quite good unit for the early game. Thoran – Thoran has a resurrect skill, which gives him one more life during the battle. While Grehzul has some great true tank-type skills such as shield, reduction of magic damage, stealing enemy defense, etc. We would recommend investing in Grehzul if you have both Thoran and Grehzul.

AFK Arena Tier List Overview: –

  • DPS – These characters deal a lot of damage to their foes in the battle with their awesome basic stats as well as massive crushing DPS skills; AoE, Single Target
  • Tank – These characters can absorb a lot of damage – thanks to the high HP stats and shield effects. No matter how good is an attack from the foes, their shield always protects them. Front line characters who protect the allies, attacking/healing/supporting from the backline

And, In the backline, you have to add the DPS units to attack from behind the tank-type characters – and, add healers/supporters to heal the frontline characters.

    • I don’t know about him – but I started playing with Hogan, Safiya, Golus like heroes. Now after playing some days, I have Tasi Lucius – but I don’t have Ferael so I can’t describe him. Now, I am using Belinda, Lyca, Grezhul, Tasi, Lucius. I stuck at some stages – then I try changing team or different combination(library bonus, etc.) and it helps me clearing the stages.
      As far as I know, Lucius and Tasi are pretty good – and I don’t have any idea on Ferael because I don’t own this hero

  1. Gwyneth seems very strong, i got her m+ version in labirynth, she has very low atack speed, but her attacks are very strong. At some points, with legendary damge dealing relics her ability was able to just insta kill all enemies.

    Also you forgot Satrana and Antandra – both new heroes, wanted to see something about them.

  2. I love my main team idk if others would agree tho lol
    Lucius (Legendary)-129
    Golus (legendary+)-127
    Belinda (Legendary)-127
    Athalia (Legendary)-128
    Nemora (Legendary+)-135

  3. To answer your question – Mehira is an AMAZING tank, even at low “ascendance” (E, E+, L)… She’s a FAR better tank than Ezizh TBH, because she self heals. I’ve had Lucius die at times and swapped her in to survive. Her crowd control is better than most- almost as good as Tasi. So she’s solid. Hard as heck to ascend though – more than any other almost.

  4. So you’re telling me Antandra and satrana didn’t make the list at all. I can’t trust a tier list that doesn’t include all the heros

  5. Thane’s not even mentioned on the list and he’s a great DPS for PvE, especially in guild hunt. He carried my team to Chapter 16.
