Welcome to Borderpolar's AFK Arena hero tier list in 2021. 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 most of those heroes are Celestials and Hypogeans.
So we cannot focus on each and every one on them.

- AFK Arena best Wrizz and Soren teams in 2021.
- AFK Arena best Twisted Realm teams in 2021.
I've been thinking a lot about this Tier List. What really matters in AFK Arena is that eventually you are going to need 25 heroes, ranging from decent to excellent because from Chapter 33 you are going to start facing 5-team fights so you are going to need 25 heroes.
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 a new account on the Test Server was quite enlightening for me, so this tier list targets the end game.
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).
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, to heroes that you are not going to use for the end game. Because in 6 to 9 months you are going to regret it, like I did.
The only heroes you should care about are the ones that are going to still work with high level and power deficits, because for instance at King's tower level 400+the enemy teams have more than double my own team's power. Ainz's ultimate feels like the scratch of a cat at this point.
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. There are pretty much the best heroes in AFK Arena at the moment, so you will use team compositions built around them.
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 be lackluster.
Hero Build Priorities per Faction
With all this in mind, I would like to show you the best heroes per faction, heroes that I have invested on or I wish I had invested on. The orders below are not absolute and depend a lot on the team compositions you are planning to use of course.
