⇒Figuring Out The Best Ones

AFK ArenaWell, there are loads of heroes in the AFK arena and you don’t have to focus on all the heroes that you get through the summon feature. This feature unlocks once you clear a certain number of stages in the campaign mode. As you progress through the campaign battles, things will get worse and you will need powerful heroes to pass the difficult stage. So it’s important to focus on the best heroes from the very beginning. Now, what are the heroes who can get you out through these stages? You don’t need to figure out it by yourself as we have made it easy for you. All you need to do is⇒ read this AFK tier list.

Focus on these best heroes; don’t waste EXP, gold, hero’s essence in useless heroes.

  • The DPS Units – These units are capable of inflicting high damage to the enemies in the battle
  • Tank – These units are capable of soaking the highest damage possible as their HP and defense stats are very good
  • Healers – The units with healing skills
  • Crowd Control – The heroes with the ability to manipulate the enemy’s ability/movement. For example; stun, silence, turning their attack on themselves, etc.
  • Buffers – These units are capable of applying positives effect on the allies(the member of the team)

You can take help of the tier list, which we posted yesterday(the link is given in the first paragraph). Once you figure out the heroes; their strength, role, skills, etc., it’s time to build the best AFK Arena team.

⇒AFK Arena Guide – Team Combination⇓

AFK ArenaBuilding a balanced team in a game like AFK Arena is really important as it can change the outcome of a battle. Even if you have the most powerful AFK Arena heroes, you should focus on the team combination and the character position. These small things matter a lot. As you know, you can deploy a team of five heroes in the battle; the two heroes in the frontline and the three heroes in the backline. The battlefield looks like this: –






⇒Now, the first two heroes in the frontline should be of a tank role; the units with the best HP/Defense and defensive/shield skills. These guys are the first ones who get the attack. Their protection shield, high HP, defense, agility stats increase survivability. And, both these units give a shield to the backline characters.

⇒In the backline, where you can deploy three heroes; you should go with a healer or two DPS. You can also try the buffer and DPS combination. But, the healer is a must.  The guys in the front line protect the backline heroes. And, the backline heroes do their job; deal damage to the enemies, heal the front row units, buff them(Depends on the team combination).

That’s the ideal team combination in the AFK Arena game. You can experiment with heroes combination and their positions if you are getting stuck on a stage.

⇒Let the battle begins!
