List of the Best Heroes in "AFK Arena": Team Guide

"AFK Arena" is one of the best gacha games I've ever played. Learn how to be one of the best players in the game by reading my guide.

With so many heroes to choose in AFK Arena, one would think that it is almost impossible to put up a list of the best heroes in the game. True, it is difficult to create a list of the best heroes in AFK Arena but it is definitely not impossible. One can easily trim down AFK Arena’s huge roster of heroes by basing on each of the hero’s max cap level. Obviously, heroes below the Elite Tier Level Heroes who are capped at level 160, below the maximum cap level of level 240, definitely are out of this list. Don’t you worry though; we’ve already saved you the trouble. Check out our list of the best heroes in AFK Arena.

End Game Tier List of Best Heroes

For this list of best heroes in AFK Arena, we will be choosing heroes best for the End Game Tier List. The End Game Tier List will only feature heroes who are capped at the maximum cap level. This means only heroes at the Elite Tier Level will only be the ones joining the list. Lower tiered level heroes won’t be included in the list because their stats and skills will be limited at level 160. Anyway, here is our list of the best heroes in AFK Arena.

Best Mages (DPS Heroes)

  1. Shemira: She is one of the best nukers in AFK Arena. Her skills allow her to deal high DPS damage to everyone in the enemy team. Plus, she has excellent healing and life leeching ability which makes her very capable of sustaining damage. She is definitely a must hero in every mode of the game.
  2. Belinda: She is an exceptional burst damage nuker in the game. Most of her skills are offensive in nature which makes her very good in dealing nuking damage to an enemy target. What makes it even better is that she can deal high burst damage in an area. Anyone in the area will surely feel the high burst damage from Belinda. She can increase her own and her ally's offensive rating through her skills. She's definitely a mage you'd like to be on your team.

Best Assassins/Damage Dealers (DPS Heroes)

  1. Athalia: Her lightning speed attacks with high critical damage makes her one of the most deadly assassins in the game. She can quickly move from place to place; thereby, allowing her to easily penetrate defenses of front line heroes. This makes her a deadly opponent to backline heroes.
  2. Gwyneth: She is a deadly archer which is capable of dealing AOE damage to the enemy team by raining down arrows upon them. Her long-range attacks can easily penetrate the enemy's defenses which allows her to attack backline heroes while the front line heroes are still alive. Imbuing her arrows with fire allows her to deal even more damage to the target. She can easily take out backline enemy heroes with her high burst damage.

  1. Lucius: He is ultimately the best tank in the game. He definitely can keep the enemy from penetrating the backline by tanking the front line damage. But what makes him special as a tank is his ability to conjure powerful shields. His active skill allows him to grant all of his teammates a powerful shield that can sustain heavy amounts of damage. Plus, he can also further help his teammates through his healing abilities. He is a powerful tank hero with amazing support abilities.
  2. Brutus: He is an excellent all-around hero who is capable of dealing decent damage while having the ability to sustain huge damage. He is probably the only tank that can deal significant amount of damage to his opponents. He may not be as defensive as other tanks but he has the ability to stay up on the battlefield even with 1 last health point remaining. When he reaches this state, he will be at his most powerful state wherein he can deal absolutely huge amounts of damage. It might only be for a few seconds but he'll surely be able to take down an enemy with him when he goes down.

  1. Nemora (Healer) - She is probably the only hero in the game with powerful AOE healing abilities. She can easily increase the damage sustainability of her teammates through her healing. What makes her healing ability even better is that her healing power can be converted to a shield if the healed teammate has full life. Unlike Tasi, Nemora is definitely reliable in all of the modes of the game.
  2. Tasi (Support) - She is considered to be the best debuffer in the game. Her ability to put the enemy team to sleep, banish the strongest enemy hero and buff ally heroes easily make her the best support hero in the game. She is very exceptional in all modes of the game except Guild Hunts where her debuffing/disabling abilities are useless.

Best Teams/Hero Combinations in "AFK Arena"

Best Team for Labyrinth

Shemira (Mage/DPS)

Lucius (Tank)

Nemora (Support/Healer)

  • Shemira is the best hero for Labyrinth. Her exceptional AOE nuking damage allows her to slowly eliminate each of the heroes in the opposing team. However, she can easily be killed because of her lack in defense. To compensate for this, she is best supported by heroes like Lucius and Nemora. Lucius protects her by tanking the front line and by conjuring shields. And Nemora can further provide protection for Shemira by healing her.
Best Team for Arena Defense

Tasi (Support/Disabler)

Lucius (Tank)

Nemora (Support/Healer)

  • For Arena Defense, your ultimate goal is to stay alive until the timer runs out. You don't need to eliminate all the heroes in the opposing team to win. You just need to survive until the time is up. Having Tasi, Lucius and Nemora in the team will surely increase your chances of winning the Arena Defense. Lucius and Nemora both have powerful shielding and healing abilities which significantly improve the damage sustainability of the team. Tasi; on the other hand, can disable the strongest enemy in the team; thereby, deliberately decreasing their offensive abilities. Plus, her ability to put the enemy team on sleep will definitely help your team stall more time. The combination of these shields, heals and debuffs will surely make you successful in your arena defense.
