I am just writing a complete tier list for whole AFK Arena for some reasons because most list I saw on various websites are outdated and didn’t really includes the latest changes and other scenario is that they simply listed some heroes.
For me, a complete tier list also includes some explanation of why a hero is S+ Heroes or why another one is not. That is why I wanted to make a full list for all the heroes that you should go and after and you need to have and level up in AFK Arena. I also have some heroes in there who are worth using in mid of the game and extremely helpful so having them is not a waste of time in the game.
AFK ARENA TIER LIST
Here are the some heroes that perform really well in all the game modes and that you should always aim to level up in game. Please keep in mind that this list assumes the same ascension level for the heroes so you will also see Celestial and Hypogeans heroes on upper level although they are very hard to ascend.
This tier list of AFK Arena prioritizes for the end game without using the short term Meta. If you wanted to decide that what hero you want to build I will explain it and you can compare them below.
The only problem with many tier list is that they rank the heroes that counter very few strong hero and will become ranked super high. It means that an individual hero is S Tier can easily become B Tier after one balancing update or a new release of hero.
Best AFK ARENA TIER LIST 2022 – Featured Points
In my list, I want to give you a look for the endgame and explaining you what heroes will help you there. So, a hero performance in early or mid-game is not included in the ranking (although you can find ranking for next early/ mid game in the table given below). None the early nor the mid game in AFK Arena is the place where most of the people stuck, it’s the endgame when most of players simply don’t have built the heroes they need. Also, building heroes that are very good in the mid game sometimes become useless or very useless in the endgame so you have invested resources into few heroes that will get you stuck.
Because, I know very well that it might be controversial or debatable but I am absolutely damn sure that what helps players the most. Still, at the end you will find a complete tier list and few heroes that you should focus on early and mid-game.
Mid Game Tier List – Early
Below is the main tier list but there’s also a smaller tier list of early mid heroes if you are starting out or below Chapter 15 gives you an overview about the heroes you should build here to progress fast. Again, I am telling you that these heroes will become useless in the late midgame but you will need to carry in the first few chapters and are for that reason worth building.

Starting -> Mid Game Tier List
Here are some of the Heroes that you should try to build in game if you’re starting out in AFK Arena and you are below the Chapter 15. Some of those heroes can’t get ascended so you can’t use them in the later game or just get not powerful enough for next endgame but will do an excellent job earlier in the game so you can’t ignore them.
- Shemira is the carry hero for the mid game and is very much overpowered there. In the late game of Chapter 30+ she just will not deal enough damage and get countered very much easily to make an impact. But in early and mid-game she will simply destroy everything and often even when solo so building her is absolutely worth it.
- Saveas is a crazy carry hero in AFK Arena Early so ascending him and use him as a carry hero without any doubt. The good thing is that you can later use him as a fodder hero for ascending other Mauler heroes when you are in the mid game.
- Lucius is an excellent tank early and in midgame with his shield and healing. In the late game he die soon too fast and doesn’t provide much for the team to get a good place. But in the midgame he is probably one of the best tank option you can get and also very worth building.
- Brutus is another new and really important hero early in the game. In the early game he deals so much damage that he will carry you solo and with his invincible ability he proves to be a beast. Even in the late game there are situations where you can use him well, although many heroes will counter him very easily and his damage will become almost nothing.
- Rowan is the hero to be build, in early to the endgame and he is extremely viable. If you can build him early which is quite easy, do it. Super Healing, support and just wow to have it almost any team setup through all stages in AFK Arena Rowan.
Hero Details (Alphabetically A to Z Order)
Ainz Ooal Gown is basically the God father of all those carry heroes with his stuns all percentage damage and further more you get in AFK Arena, the most powerful Ainz is getting. There is no doubt that if you invest in him you will do nothing wrong at all. Only reason that he is not in first spot of this tier list is the fact that he can be a little squishy and it’s possible that some setups are just disabling him.
Albedo is the Crime Partner for Ainz and they always used to run together. Don’t prove me wrong because Albedo is a very good hero but he always depend on Ainz; if you’re not running Ainz or Ainz is not that effective against a setup. Albedo is also getting a lot less effective so it was a little difficult ranking her all by herself.
Alna is one of the best heroes that you need to have, especially for that end and late game of AFK Arena. She is very much versatile and makes your whole team a lot stronger while being super sustainable as well.
Anoki is the best hero many waited for when he was released but further he turns out that he is neither strong nor really versatile. He is more like a hero that’s nice to have in some cases in faction tower but doesn’t belong in any priority.
Antandra can be wild when paired up with Skreg but has to be heavily invested in. After all, he is a good hero to use in faction tower but he has only rare role appearances in the endgame.
Arthur has a good collaboration in early level game and mid game in AFK Arena Tier with Gwyneth and it is the fact that you can attach him an ascended hero right away is really good so taking him is mandatory. The drawback is that he will lose effectiveness because he will not bring that much support to team and even he can’t be able to stand long in battlefield.
Astar is superb with ability of her instant damage reduction for all type of Allies right and when the battlefield starts she paired up with her immunity to control abilities amazingly like Athalia or any other heroes paired with high type burst. It makes the team highly survivable because she provides healing and burning effect that is not bad at all. Now, the matter is that how she develops herself, but as per my prediction she will probably get ranked higher in future so get her and build her you won’t regret at all.
Athalia is too much fragile and get down too fast to leave an impact and in some situations she is too great to deal with some backline heroes especially in endgame. For PVP aspects and in certain situation is a great choice but later you think about it if it’s enough to invest in her.
Awakened Talene is the first whale hero and first Awakened hero in AFK Arena game. First of all, she is not much effective as you assumed but never thought that she deal that massive overload of damage neither she sustain too long in battlefield. Rank can be changed as new teams come up but she isn’t the best hero that you like and early to invest because by the time new normal team players will be able to have her and use her abilities, but there will be much stronger Awakened heroes available in game.
Baden has a real value and place where he shine and when you can stack u his shadows so he will stack the damage and start with massive amounts. He is best to distract bosses from your team. But as per my prediction and in regular game he can’t stack well enough to make it high on tier list.
Belinda No doubt is a great player and real hero because he will deal great damage and also strike down enemy’s team and mid game in AFK Arena. Her role in endgame was to buff Khazard and Ainz with her blessing because they see decline in Meta and Belinda is also getting less effective in role of end game. She is likely a great hero in endgame and you can still have niche spots where she is useful.
Brutus is a full beast and very active and powerful in midgame. In late game he lacks survivability and damage and his shield can be removed to make him rank higher. But he still can have a great role against a team who lost their last gasp ability but you need to overcome some really high damage.
Cecilia is magician killer and that is true. But it is only the role that she can fill and she can be squishy too. In the mid game she is too much viable but later when it comes to AFK Arena she is less effective. Her damage and surviving ability gets too bad that she’s no hero and that’s why you will be using in late game. And as per my prediction there are many heroes you can invest and they can play a better role.
Celestial Twins have been the best heroes that you will find really higher in tier list with stargazing priorities because both of them are viable and great support. It is true that in endgame and also in late game they both have outclassed by other heroes and later become less effective. Would you like to invest in them? Yes but keep in mind that there are some other celestial hypogean heroes that can even work better.
Daimon is very much superb exciting hero and you will find him in many Meta end games setup. He is too much viable and can stack and over roll enemy team very well especially in AFK Arena where his level gets more and more. As per my prediction you should invest in this hero.
Desira has many viable and strong abilities and plus point of immunity to crowd control but is not as much powerful as Silas. Very hard to tough that she will develop in upcoming months but as per my prediction I don’t see her higher in tier ranking.
Drez seems pretty much similar to Cecilia and in end and late game he will become useless because of no much effectiveness anymore. I won’t recommend you to invest in him except for some small setups in Faction Tower.
Eironn is a great hero especially later in end game and has a place in various Meta team setups. He seems to be a great long term investment where you can see him little much squishy midgame and he will start gaining power if you invest into his furniture and signature item in game.
Eluard is pretty much new in the game but keep in mind the fact that he is one of the stronger Light bearer faction heroes later in the game. And another bad news is that Light bearer heroes are not much stronger in end or late games in AFK Arena so building him is optional case for you.
Estrilda has more power in the AFK Arena mid game and she is that low in tier list and that is the reason she will die too early in late game of AFK Arena and won’t deliver any kind of bang to invest heavily in her long term.
Ezio is very good and powerful hero and investing him and getting him obviously makes sense as you can cheese with him and another thing is that his ability in battlefield is too much strong especially later in game.
Ezizh is a good hero in term of PvE not that much of use later in game except some niche situation where you need to silent the enemy and there are very much and better heroes available that can outclass him. He dies too quickly later in game and for PvP he is a super important hero.
Fawkes is pretty useful and shines in the mid game and Faction Tower but when it comes to end game tier list for PvE he is nothing more than a niche hero to put an enemy down and the requirements are too much and he will not be best enough to satisfy investment in signature item or furniture set.
Ferael is great hero that is best in many situations when you have invested a lot into his signature items and furniture too and even he can shut down enemy heroes by making his shadow eat and neglect their energy productions. It is a great and useful thing in a lot of cases and also PvP is very useful.
Flora is a hero that can be mount very easily as compared to others because you can get as many copies of from Lab store and even you can find her frequently in Hero Choice Chest or Events. Also, she isn’t a bad option here and also don’t require any ascension to fit in your team. She can’t get killed during the whole battle because her performance will fall off later in game. As per my prediction she is the best investment in furniture and signature items.
Framton has many abilities and feature that deals a lot of damage, healing of blocks, mirror attacks and much more. A very useful hero that is not easy to build but worth it in long run.
Gorvo can be used in Faction Tower but can’t play more role in PvE campaigns or other games modules in AFK Arena because of his mechanics don’t bring anything. And no other powerful hero will outclass him in this.
Granit is the best and most useful tank that perform really well in start in AFK Arena but falls later in game. He lacks survivability but his ability to hitting back enemies is useful. He is no more than tower or niche role.
Grezhul has more strength in few months and the most important thing is that his damage and control on things earn him this place and ranking and another fact is that he doesn’t rely too much on other heroes. He fits into setup pretty much well. He perform squishy in earlier game but later a beast.
Gwyneth is very strong with the stun lock and with her damage no doubt, and I recommend her in the mid game in AFK Arena all the way. However, in the end game there are many heroes as well that can outclass her and she isn’t that much high in tier list.
Haelus is a shield all the way. He will give a new life and bunch of survivability to the heroes and tackle enemies here and there with full of signature bonus. This is the problem with it. Moreover, no attacks to make his team going through roof or damage that make any significant difference. This thing made him a great option for PvP but when it comes to end game PvE he won’t be that best.
Hendrik is just an average. There is not so much special things about him that give him any high place in tier gaming. He is okay at tanking and at ultimate too but not so much exceptional strong nor his item or furniture changed about it. As per my prediction you can choose him and pull him out in early mid game but don’t invest in him.
Hodgkin is very much viable and useful. His sustaining ability make him strong in earlier stages. Later, in game he revamp himself, heal himself cripple the enemies and snowball his own damage in so long battles that can be much devastating against him. He is very much fresh in game and there can be many adjustments to his tier position but he is likely a great super solid hero that is worth to invest him.
Isabella unfortunately is not so much strong enough to make herself worth investing in. She is squishy, instable when it comes to counter with mage killer enemies heroes.
Izold is a tank that is very sustainable with his power of self-healing in mid game. You can use him very well and you will find him as a last hero standing. But unfortunately he doesn’t bring much more and plays a steady role in team setups but it’s still not the end of game. He is not useless and he is solid tank but not much outstanding.
Kaz was very low in tier lists since her release in AFK Arena gaming for long time. But with the power of magic damage she become more and more viable and important in top tier heroes. She starts getting better with her dodge magical attacks. As per my prediction, she isn’t a top hero but she will get more visibility in near future.
Kelthur is not like a hero you consider. He has niche role and plays a very rare role in occasions in tier gaming and also he is very much fit. It requires a lot of investments for him but it is best and suitable somewhat.
Kren is one of the best but not that much as people expected him to be powerful in late game. He is crazy and does a lot of control and in various cases you need him in your team. The only disadvantage is that you need to full invest into him to control his chains.
Leonardo da Vinci is just like a dimensional Tasi but the main point is that he can do very high damage with using his cannon and also has good cc. The evading can get him out of messy situations but one bad stun or wrong enemy can mess up your whole battlefield.
Leofric is not that much useful in the game except in some situation where you need to tackle and silent the enemies team but there are many other heroes that are available who can outclass him. And later in the game he just die too quickly and it’s not to do good investment in him.
Lorsan is a controversial hero and has many niche roles where he is very useful in fight. But that’s not enough to give him a part in higher tier list but he might be useful in some setups in AFK Arena.
Lucius is an early mid game tank that you need to have. His powerful healing power and shield will let you towards chapter 28-30 so you can invest in him. You should not invest heavily on signature items or furniture and use him until these chapters. Later in the end game he will be non-existing and simply eaten away by the damage. So, there are many better options than him.
Lucretia is very much reliable to taken as part of game since her release and she increased her ranking steadily a lot in tier list. She is just crazy and can let you to carry through Chapter 30. Also, she is much viable in many game modes you can find her in almost every half of Meta Team setups. You should consider her as the highest stargazing priority in game.
Lyca is very powerful hero and you should invest in her in early part of game. Her buffs make her useful. You will be frequently using her powers in every stage of AFK Arena. She is up in tier list for a reason.
Mehira is super commando, the later you get in AFK Arena because her ranking is very much high in tier list. She has a powerful crowd control can charm enemies and let them out of the battlefield rapidly. Especially, in end game she is super important.
Merlin is a great addition in game that works perfect in preventing and avoiding incoming damage. She is best against setups that will burst your team quickly. She can also add up handy buffs to the mix.
Mezoth was crazy and strong enough hero when released but later he become less viable. Yes, he can take off the enemies from battlefield that is good but the major point is that he can easily be counter off and taken out of equation. So, that’s the reason I declared him niche role hero that should not be the high priority to invest in furniture.
Mishka sounded really nice in the mid earlier game of AFK Arena and you can use her as a hero in faction tower but later she becomes clunky. The major reason is that her wolves die off earlier very quickly but if all that happens in right time she gets the healing but still she loses lot of effectiveness. As per my prediction she even doesn’t deserve the niche role.
Morael is very well niche hero, you can assume him as an average hero. She can be sometime clunky at times and you should not consider him high on your heroes list to invest in.
Morrow has one on three abilities and that are stun, freeze, and sleep enemies heavily. He is not the hero that can dealing much damage or burst and the only downside or cons he has that you need to setup so he can protect you. Else, he has no other ability to survive and can be snipped down easily if you cannot use him in right way.
Mortas is the best hero and strongest one that you ever find in AFK Arena and also he does not much require investment on signature items or furniture so he can be a good option. If you have plans on having him on your list you will not make a mistake then.
Nakoruru is an average niche role hero and you can use him with Ainz. He can be useful in some compositions. Not really good anywhere and the investment is really tough.
Nara is really a useful hero against various setups in AFK Arena and so much powerful to let down backline heroes. Her primary usage is much PVP and especially more in endgame. She is even more than a solid niche hero to use in these kind of situations. Still very worth to have such hero and invest in her.
Nemora is not too much high in tier list earlier in the game. You can took an advantage because in late game she have been super strong. She is a great healer and if you need in game she proves to be a winner.
Numisu is very squashy sometimes and it depends directly on his team setup when figuring out the question about his affectivity. In mid game and earlier game he is quite strong and proves huge pain for his enemies. And then at the end he get outclassed easily but the major point is that he doesn’t require any investment in furniture so keep him in his list.
Oden is much strong and unique hero when you came across in end game in AFK Arena in tier list. And that’s the reason he is quite high in tier. He is rock solid at Meta end games team and very good investment for long term.
Orthos is a hero that works really well in PvP where you can pump your enemy than in campaign end game. He is rock solid and can be useful too but he is too expensive to invest and he is not a hero for everyone’s roaster.
Oscar is not useful at all. He is very squashy and sometimes he won’t take you where you want to be. In end game of AFK Arena, he get die off too quickly and won’t give you enough time to make an impact to prove investment is worth the buck.
Peggy is too much clunky hero that isn’t worth full to invest in earlier stages in AFK Arena than later in the game. As per my prediction she is not the hero effectively for this investment in furniture.
Pippa is not only just look cool and also funny to watch but also she is very strong when it comes to investment in her furniture and signature items and also when you run her with the right number of heroes. For AFK Arena tier list he is the right hero to invest in upper game and he proves herself if you invest in her.
Prince of Persia is best hero that has been hyped up with the release and she is nice to use in AFK Arena tier list. Still, if you compare her to a hero that works pretty well and similar that is Ezio, Prince of Persia is little more trivial and lack visibility.
Raine has been the hero that number of people used her as fodder and flagged as useless since the release of Meta and balancing changes that bought her up slowly. She isn’t the craziest and must have hero but looks a solid option to have and invest in. From all light bearer heroes in AFK Arena she is still worth full in end game of tier list.
Raku is too extreme strong and even much stronger than expected him when he was released. The major point is that why he shines in late game of AFK Arena tier list is his 30+ signature items that will damage so it scales up with the enemies.
Respen was much hyped since his release but it suddenly turned out that he won’t have that much impact and isn’t useful in endgame. Not worth full to invest and unless you need a wilder hero for the faction tower.
Rigby is like hero that is not worth to invest in. Too much clunky, nothing much outstanding. He dies off quickly, doesn’t deal with much damage and his control isn’t powerful. Don’t use him as fodder and don’t invest in him unless you saw a huge change for him in his balancing update or Meta change in future.
Rosaline works like a power bank for another hero. Set her to follow that hero that wrecks and he works perfectly run his ultimate twice as Rosaline will fill the other hero energy. Good for investment at multiple occasion you can use her but she is not Meta end game.
Rowan is the hero to have in AFK Arena. He is quite amazing and great and provides great support and rock solid healing when it comes to team setups from early to end game and in all game modes. He is the right hero to prioritize over any other hero in the game in any stage.
Safiya has her the best moments in the mid game of AFK Arena when she can charge to her ultimate and just slam dunk enemy’s whole team. She became less useful in end game around the chapter 30 because of too setup took her out of the game too quickly. She can’t be able to counter the damage and her damage isn’t dramatically anymore.
Satrana took some reworks and become proved herself strong hero from being a useless hero in past few months. She isn’t a good hero and if you want to make her hero in end game you should invest in her in faction tower.
Saurus is a great carry hero to use against bosses or in some situations where you need a real hero dealing loads of damage to a single target. His main problem in endgame is that he is not enough to slice through enemies and it’s too easy to let him down. Still a valid hero to invest in and have in roaster of heroes.
Scarlet is looks like a light bearer shemira when its start snowballing. She is a cool hero to run and most viable option to invest in end game as you able to get together enemies. She can heal, deal and keep rolling down her ultimate enemies like craziest one. She is little slow for PvP though.
Seirus is not that hero that you should consider him to invest in at all. In earlier of AFK Arena she gets too much squishy and then later he dies off too fastly and won’t bring anything to table.
Shemira is that type of hero, you can call her the single carry hero in early mid game. She became useless because her damage is not enough to hurt the heroes until she can be taken down to extreme ultimate one level. Still a hero that any kind of player in AFK Arena should prioritize in early of game. As per prediction don’t invest in her furniture or signature item.
Silas is the very good healer and the Grave born faction was waiting for too long and he is really took that kind of place. He is very good hero and investment is the best thing and sure for AFK Arena. He is quite useful in faction tower and also in later and end game is a really solid option.
Skreg is a nice hero in faction tower and also in mid game of AFK Arena he is hero that is quite useful if you invest in his signature items. In the end of game he become quite less effective and more and more setups disable him and his abilities and that’s why he isn’t effective anymore to make him more a rare niche hero or a tank in faction tower in AFK Arena.
Skriath is one the combatant faction hero that you should invest in him long term. He is squishy too much in early mid game and even not too much crazy enough to invest in him. The better he gets, and he is useful hero in later game.
Solise is useful in faction tower and can be equipped AoE damage hero of the wilder faction. But the main thing is that her damage will become not become too enough in end game. Raku is too better so she doesn’t have that much ranking in the tier list in AFK Arena.
Talene was the stellar hero that everybody got in and was working on with. She is on top since her released in AFK Arena. Recently, she’s declining especially in the end game because of less effectiveness. But still she is a strong hero to consider for you and carry you a lot. But in term of later to end game tier ranking she isn’t top on list anymore.
Tasi is of the heroes in AFK Arena that any player should build. Her abilities of controlling, are very much strong and will be quite helpful in so many cases from early to end game. When it comes to end game she can disable an enemy hero completely and that can be very useful.
Thali can be referred to as a conquer saveas but she later falls out of Meta in end game. She deals raw damage misses some uniqueness to make her strong. She also doesn’t have any significance for bosses.
Thane is hero that you should stay away in whole battle in AFK Arena from start to end game. He simply can’t live at all and too squishy and if you need assassin there are much better option available for it. Not worth any investments for it at all.
Theowyn sometimes alright at something but not well at anything. She can survive quite well but overall there are many better option available so you don’t need to invest in her.
Thesku is a great early and mid-game carry useful too much in faction tower and sometimes in PvP as well. Please keep in mind that the rating is heavily determined by end game so his position doesn’t show the fact that how useful he will be in early for any player in AFK Arena.
Thoran is the hero to brick in so many setups and situations in AFK Arena. He is that kind of hero to go to after as F2P as earlier as possible and once it got fully equipped with signature and furniture items the enemies won’t mess up with and carry you a lot of chapters.
Tidus is sometimes very best to use in right team setups but you can still consider him as a niche hero role for faction tower or can use really rare occasions as he sometimes clunky to play.
Torne is not too much unique and missing a lot of things that make him superb. He is also not too much viable hero and doesn’t deal with damage or buffs. He is simply average but a nice addition to team. As per my prediction he isn’t qualify for investment on emblems or furniture.
Treznor is rock solid and running him is the best choice at all. His investments fit his kit fully but the other downside is that he can’t provide too much damage. But still consider as a best niche role hero choice and also suggested best for tower when it comes to end game in AFK Arena.
Ukyo is one of the suitable hero for niche role. He is quite useful in countering flora in the frontline alongside with Zolrath. But he is not too much high in priority in AFK Arena Tier List.
Ulmus is not a solid tank that can be used for healing and there is nothing that much he can contribute to the team. But he can be used as an early tank in faction tower but you don’t need to invest anything into his furniture and or signature items.
Vurk can cause a very controversial debate regarding his use in battlefield. But he is nothing more than a niche role hero where you can find better options than him. He can be countered very easily and there is also no need to keep him alive and his damage falls of the tier in the game.
Walker to be frank, a very underwhelming hero that doesn’t play any other role in game. He also doesn’t do any major damage and also don’t add up anything to team. Using him is fine but don’t invest him at all in AFK Arena battlefield.
Warek is badly lacks everything and there is no worth investing in battlefield. His doesn’t do much damage and he dies off too quickly. He is best addition in some stages in faction tower.
Wu Kong has seen immense decline in his tier list but he is still a useful hero but keep in mind that he is relatively very easy to ascend and he is the hero that you can invest in. The main truth is that when we look at the facts and his abilities are getting more and more being outclassed by the new heroes.
Zaphrael doesn’t play much more a role in late end game. His major part is to counter Lucretia who is very much strong in various setups. Else, there is no other reason to invest in him.
Zikis is genuinely very strong dealer in battlefield of AFK Arena tier list. He has the ability to sustain and delivers good mitigation but missed some of useful feature to become craziest hero in tier list.
Zolrath is that kind of hero who will give you a completely wrong impression when you run into setup. The more later you get him into game the less effective he is and there are a bunch of new heroes out who can deal with him quite well.
