AFK Arena Tier List for Top 10 Heroes


Hello everyone, as most of you are well aware of, AFK Arena has been growing in popularity ever since its release, and there are many different heroes to choose from. Because of this, it is important to know which Heroes are good in the meta, and hopefully, our AFK Arena Tier List for Top 10 Heroes will help you with deciding which Heroes to use. 

1. Shemira – Rating 97

Faction: Graveborn
Class: Intelligence
Type: Mage
Role: Damage Dealer

Shemira is one of the most powerful damage dealers in AFK Arena. Her kit allows her to wreck enemies with ease while keeping herself healthy thanks to her Ultimate – Tortured Souls and her Soul Siphon skill. Her Silence skill can make short work of some dangerous enemy Heroes, which rounds up her kit quite well and places her on a top spot of our AFK Arena Tier List. 

+ Great AoE Damage thanks to her Ultimate

+ Amazing self healing

+ Her Silence can help immensely against enemy mages

+ Fits well in most teams

Heavily reliant on her Ultimate to deal damage and heal herself

Her Silence targets are random, which can screw you up in certain situations

Prone to being bursted down

Fairly weak at low levels, but scales amazingly in the late game

2. Lucius – Rating 96

Faction: Lightbearers
Class: Strength
Type: Melee
Role: Support/Tank

If you are looking for a Hero that can protect, buff, and heal allies, while also being able to tank and do some crowd controlling, then Lucius is the right choice for you. He is pretty much the only Hero in AFK Arena that can both tank and support his team effectively. This makes him one of the best Heroes in AFK Arena, which is why he’s the essential member of many top team setups.

+ Provides amazing protection for the team via his Heaven’s Protection skill which gives his entire team massive damage shield

+ Has decent healing capabilities with his Divine Blessing skill

+ Has somewhat decent crowd control ability with his Divine Strike skill

His damage is very low, which is his only noticeable downside

3. Tasi – Rating 94

Faction: Wilders
Class: Intelligence
Type: Mage
Role: Support

Tasi is one of the strongest Support Heroes in AFK Arena. Her kit allows her to Heal teammates with her Dream Spirit ability, but that is not her main strong point. She offers amazing crowd control abilities with Slumber and Banishment, which makes her exceptionally strong support Hero. Not many other Heroes offer the same level of crowd control as she does, and that earns her one of the top spots on our AFK Arena Tier List.

+ Amazing Crowd Control capabilities thanks to her skills Slumber and Banishment

+ Can do some decent healing with Dream Spirit

+ Her Teleportation skill makes her very hard to kill

Very low energy regen

Teleportation can sometimes place her into a very dangerous situation

She is pretty useless against enemies that are immune to crowd control, such as guild bosses

4. Brutus – Rating 93

Faction: Maulers
Class: Strength
Type: Melee
Role: Damage Dealer/Tank

Brutus is perhaps, one of the strongest Heroes in AFK Arena. His skills make him exceptionally hard to kill, and the lower his health is, the more damage he deals. This synergizes great with his Last Grasp skill, which provides him with damage immunity when his health drops to zero. On top of that, his Roar ability makes the enemies unable to dodge, which counters Heroes that heavily rely on dodge. But that’s not all. His Whirlwind ability can obliterate enemy team while also providing him with crowd control immunity and healing him in the process – literally “spin to win”. This great skill synergy puts him high on our AFK Arena Tier List.

+ Amazing skills synergy.

+ Extremely difficult to kill. Only few Heroes can counter his Last Grasp skill

+ Synergizes well with other Strength/Agility Heroes

Quite weak in the early game

Requires a lot of investment to really shine

Not that good against guild bosses

5. Nemora – Rating 92

Faction: Wilders
Class: Intelligence
Type: Mage
Role: Support

Alongside Tasi, Nemora is one of the best Support Heroes in AFK Arena. However, unlike Tasi, whose main strength lies in crowd control, Nemora is mainly focused on healing her allies. Most of her skills are focused on healing her allies, and even if she overheals them, the portion of that healing will be converted into protective shield, which makes her the best healer in AFK Arena hands down. 

+ Amazing healing skills. No other Hero in AFK Arena can compete with her when it comes to raw healing potential

+ Even her overhealing is useful, which is another reason why she is so strong

+ She has some crowd control potential thanks to her Beguile skill

No damage. Sadly, the damage she deals is pretty much neglectable, but let’s face it, no one will place her in a team to deal damage

No burst-healing. While her overall healing is amazing, most of her healing is sustained, so she doesn’t offer much burst potential, which can be problematic at times.

6. Athalia – Rating 91

Faction: Celestials
Class: Agility
Type: Melee
Role: Damage Dealer

Athalia is melee Hero specialized in taking down an enemy with extremely high burst damage. Her Judgement skill allows you to pick the target you want her to burst down, which is simply amazing. Also, she counts as a member of any Faction, which means she can fit into any team composition. The only reason why she isn’t ranked any higher on our AFK Arena Tier List is because she is extremely difficult to obtain and ascend. Be ready to spend tons of diamonds if you want to include her in your team.

+ Great controllable burst damage

+ Decent crowd control capabilities

+ Fits well into any team thanks to her special Celestials Faction

One of the hardest Heroes to ascend

Weak against Heroes with high dodge

7. Mehira – Rating 89

Faction: Hypogean
Class: Intelligence
Type: Mage
Role: Damage Dealer

Mehira is quite interesting Hero with several unique abilities. At the start of each fight, she summons three minions by sacrificing a large portion of her current health. These minions serve multiple purposes. They deal damage to enemies, but should any attack bring Mehira to zero health, a minion will be sacrificed to heal her. This makes her very hard to burst down. Also, she have amazing AoE damage thanks to her Whiplash ability, which also heals her. Other than that, she can crowd control enemies with her Ultimate, Mesmerize, which also makes the enemies attack each other.

+ Amazing Crowd control, thanks to her ultimate

+ Very good AoE Damage

+ Great survivability

Extremely difficult to ascend. You’ll need to invest a lot if you want to include her in your team

8. Safiya – Rating 88

Faction: Maulers
Class: Intelligence
Type: Mage
Role: Damage Dealer

Safiya is Mage type Hero capable of dealing good damage, while also providing buffs to her allies. Her Spectral Disruption allows her to buff her allies’ attack rating at the beginning of each battle. She can also buff the most forward positioned ally with a damage aura, and thanks to her Ultimate, Falling Sun, she can dish out some amazing AoE damage.

+ Very good damage potential, especially her Ultimate, which is capable of dealing insane amounts of damage

+ Provides decent buffs for allies while also debuffing enemies

Her Ultimate takes a long time to fully charge up, which can leave some openings for her enemies

She doesn’t fit into all compositions, which can also be problematic at times

9. Eironn – Rating 86

Faction: Wilders
Class: Agility
Type: Melee
Role: Damage Dealer

Eironn is a Melee Damage Dealer capable of dealing great amounts of AoE damage. He also has decent control abilities, allowing him to pull enemies close to him and also slow them down. This is a great way to prevent enemies from reaching your back line, but it is a double-edged sword since in many cases, the enemies will focus him down quickly.

+ Great AoE Damage potential

+ Decent Crowd Control capability

+ Deals bonus damage to shielded enemies, which is a great way to counter enemies that are focused on shielding their allies

Very squishy. He doesn’t have any survivability in his toolkit, so he is extremely reliant on allies to keep him alive

In many cases, enemies will focus him down after he pulls them close, which makes it very risky to use his Vortex skill. 

10. Hendrik – Rating 85

Faction: Lightbearers
Class: Strength
Type: Melee
Role: Tank

Hendrik is a Melee Type Tank Hero, specialized in protecting his allies and crowd controlling the enemies. His Sacrificial Shield allows him to prevent a backline ally from dying once per battle, and he can’t be mind-controlled while performing this skill. This is a great way to prevent enemies from bursting down your squishies. Also, his toolkit allows him to knockback and stun enemies, which in turn prevents them from reaching your backline easily.

+ Extremely durable thanks to his Standfast skill

+ Great crowd control options

+ Can prevent enemies from bursting one of your backline allies

Two of his skills can only be used once per battle, which can be problematic against some teams

Requires some high levels to really shine, so he’s not that good early in the game
