AFK Arena Tier List 2022: All Heroes Ranked [v1.83]

Last Updated on February 17, 2022 by Anastasios Antoniadis

Welcome to Borderpolar’s AFK Arena tier list in 2021. This post will give you an idea of what works in AFK Arena long-term. There are many great heroes in this game, but you will notice that most of those heroes are Celestials and Hypogeans.

So we cannot focus on each and everyone on them. Instead, we need to focus on top-tier heroes first. In mobile gaming, this is usually the rule of thumb, as gacha RPGs are resource-demanding.

AFK Arena Game Modes

I’ve been thinking a lot about this Tier List. What really matters in AFK Arena is that eventually, you will need 25 heroes, ranging from decent to excellent because from Chapter 33 you will start facing 5-team fights.

You are going to need 5 decent to excellent heroes for the faction towers and you are going to need a very strong team for King’s Tower.

Starting new accounts on the Test Server was quite enlightening for me, so this tier list targets the end game. You will find early-game and mid-game tier lists online. However, this tier list does not focus on early and mid-game.

List of Heroes to Avoid

Firstly, my best advice for you is to not bother building any hero below B in this tier list. I regret spending so many resources on heroes that were considered good but they are now useless (Belinda, Shemira, Athalia, and others).

Regardless, I am not labeling heroes like these as trash. But what matters, is that there are far better heroes. So, I would advise you to not spend any resources, including fodder, on heroes that you are not going to use in the end game. Because in 6 to 9 months you are going to regret it, as I did.

Consequently, I advise you to only invest in the best among ascended heroes.

The only heroes you should care about are the ones that are going to still work with high level and power deficits. For instance, at King’s tower level 400+the enemy teams have more than quadruple my own team’s power. Ainz’s ultimate feels like the scratch of a cat at this point, despite his overall insane damage output.

The Best AFK Arena Heroes

So what do you really care about at this point and which heroes are the best?

Skills that still Attack Rating percentage (Grezhul’s and Daimon’s for instance), heroes that remove HP% like Ainz, Alna because she provides immunity, Thoran because he returns the damage he receives multiplied.

Lucretia because her SI +30 is amazing, Raku because he hits like a truck, Rowan because getting fast ultimates is priceless, plus he is a tanky support hero with crowd control. There are pretty much the best heroes in AFK Arena at the moment, so you will use team compositions built around them.

Scarlet is an amazing hero for team hunting, especially Wrizz, along with several Twisted Realm bosses.

So, that brings us to the next point which I have not written about. Team compositions. I tried to keep heroes that are useful in end-game team comps at Tier B or higher, even if individually they may seem lackluster.

Overall, I believe Alna is the best AFK Arena hero.

Hero build priorities per Faction (AFK Arena tier list per feaction)

With all this in mind, I would like to show you the best heroes per faction, heroes that I have invested in or I wish I had invested in. The orders below are not absolute and depend a lot on the team compositions you are planning to use of course. These will also help you compose the best AFK Arena teams for faction towers:
