AFK Arena Tier List - Best Heroes Ranked

Where do the latest heroes rank on our AFK Arena tier list? As a popular idle RPG game, AFK Arena is constantly adding new and exciting heroes to spice up how you play. One simple change to your typical lineup can get you through a difficult spot while making past fights more challenging; it's just the nature of how any five units synergize with each other. Because of that, an AFK Arena tier list is difficult to properly map out.

The game's best heroes are sometimes only that when paired with their perfect match. That being said, the best AFK Arena heroes are typically those who manage to outperform others in situations where they otherwise shouldn't. If they can deal enough damage to wipe out a potential counter before they have a chance to do their thing, they're likely to land high up the AFK Arena tier list.

If you're still without some of the better heroes on our AFK Arena tier list, using the latest AFK Arena codes might just get you the premium currency needed to obtain them. And if after that you're still looking to test your luck, why not give the latest Coin Master free spins links a go? We've also got some Pet Master free spins as well. They're not the same kind of games as AFK Arena at all, but both can scratch the itch of going up against the odds.

How We Grade Our AFK Arena Tier List

Advertisement

AFK Arena is more than just a race through a long series of story missions. Although that's certainly where you'll be spending most of your time early on, it's only in end-game scenarios where top-tier heroes visibly push ahead of others.

Just about any AFK Arena hero you pull will get you through the story if levelled up enough. Raw stats are all you really need to edge out in these battles, after all. But once characters hit the level cap and thus stop gaining stats this way, it's how you optimize their equipment and carve strategies around their unique skillsets that will place them ahead of some others, thus creating the AFK Arena tier list.

While you won't really want to read too much into this if you're not taking on the game's ultra-competitive PvP scene or going up against massive bosses, knowing where your most recent pull sits on the AFK Arena tier list can give you a good idea of where you might want to spend your resources early on.

For example, if you're lucky enough to pull Daimon in your first summon, you'll probably want to focus your resources on improving them. Although just about any character will be able to pull their weight in the storyline, Daimon will continue to shine in modes where common units will quickly get trounced.

AFK Arena Tier List

Because of how many modes the best AFK Arena heroes can show their worth or weaknesses in, we've formatted this AFK Arena tier list in alphabetical order. If you're trying to memorize the lot, just slowly scroll down and take in the data.

If you're simply wanting to see where your new character might sit, look for their letter or use the Find on Page function (CRTL + F on a keyboard) to jump straight to them.

These rankings assume the hero in question is at Level 500+ with full Mythic+ gear and furniture etc. Their standing represents an absolute best-case scenario for the character in PvE (King's Tower and Campaign), PvP, and Boss battles like in the Twisted Realm.
