The best AFK Arena heroes – AFK Arena tier list

Welcome to Borderpolar's AFK Arena hero tier list in 2021. The first infographic is a top heroes list I made on Tiermaker, a great site for creating tier lists! The second one is based on afkarena.net's endgame tier list. I made this page to give you an idea of what works in AFK Arena's long run. There are many top heroes in this game, but you will notice that the majority of those heroes are Celestials and Hypogeans. So we cannot focus on each and everyone on them. For instance, I would suggest that you focus on the S+ tier characters. First, they will be useful in most modes throughout the game. And if you want a personal opinion, Talene is probably the best character in AFK Arena.

I will also compile an individual list of the top heroes in each class, such as:

  • Best support class heroes: Talene, Rowan, Twins, Tasi, Rosaline
  • Best tank class heroes: Lucius, Orthos, Brutus
  • Best mage class heroes: Ainz, Mehira, Belinda
  • Best ranger class heroes: Athalia, Eironn, Ferael
  • Best warrior class heroes: Alna, Nara, Wu Kong, Saurus

Please look at my overall AFK Arena tier list for 2021, and bear with me until I fully explain why I think these characters are the best characters of each class.

Best endgame AFK Arena teams – Visual guide

This is a fantastic visual guide by u/AFKArty on Reddit (AFK Arena ID: 8888031) and ALPATTEX (AFK Arena ID: 27959515). If you are F2P I would recommend avoiding any teams on this list that contain Celepogeans or Dimensionals.

I use my own variation of the Ainz Comp in most cases and it goes like this:

  • Albedo (Barricade, SI +15)
  • Rowan (Dura's Call, SI +30)
  • Ainz (Dura's Eye, SI +20)
  • Eironn (Dura's Call/Blade – this depends on survivability, SI +30)
  • Lyca (Dura's doesn't-really-matter, we just want the haste, SI +15)

Lyca substitutes: Fawkes, JOKER

I used to call this team “Wait for Ainz”. Obviously, the goal is for Ainz to use his ultimate. In the past, I used Fawkes instead of Lyca to have two CC in the team (slowing everyone down, thus the name). I also used Joker for a while instead because Eironn with a little bit more CC from others triggered his All-Out Attack. This team did not have great survivability but it was really good. Also, you can move Rowan in the back and remove Lyca, to put Alna at the front. For high survivability, I also try Lucius from time to time, but I think a strong Alna is just mindblowing.
