Last Updated: September 2021

If you are a fan of RPG mobile games, then there is no way that you haven’t heard about AFK Arena. With its far-reaching ads, anyone that has any connection with games probably knows about AFK Arena. It has one of the most complete rosters of players with different classes roles and types. Many of our favorite characters from anime or games are playable in gaming, helping us build connections with them. That is the point of RPGs anyway.

You are going to build a lot of connections in this game since there is a lot of progression for each character. There are levels, rarity, equipment, and artifacts. So if you want to get a character to the peak of his abilities, you have to invest a lot of time doing so. The problem with that is, that if you find a character that you like and you are thinking of spending the time to make him as strong as possible and in the end it turns out that he is not as strong as you thought. That is what we are going to prevent with our tier list. We are going to rank all the characters according to their power levels when they are all maxed out.

AFK Arena Tier List:


First, we have the top of the top of our AFK Arena Tier List. These heroes are widely considered to be overpowered and whoever is lucky enough to find them, will have a significant advantage, no matter what game mode he is playing in. Their stats scale incredibly well, and they are going to give the player the best time of his life in the game. Everything will look like a piece of cake. Pick these heroes if you have the option.

  • Elijah & Lailah
  • Rowan
  • Mehira
  • Talene
  • Ainz

AFK Arena Tier List: A-Tier

You might get disappointed if you don’t unlock the S-Tier heroes and you are only left with some A-Tier ones. Well, then you are very ungrateful. The heroes on this list are nothing to be disappointed by. They are incredible strong heroes that only lose against very specific heroes. The ones that literally counter them, or the S-Tiers. Other than that, you have nothing in the game to be afraid about. You can invest in leveling them without any regret.

  • Alna
  • Eironn
  • Lucretia
  • Zaphrael
  • Athalia
  • Ezizh
  • Khazard
  • Albedo
  • Safiya
  • Shemira
  • Kren

AFK Arena Tier List: B-Tier

Even though their names will not be written with huge letters in the pantheon of heroes, B-Tier heroes are great picks to have. Of course, they lack a bit in power compared to the higher tiers, but at least they are not so hard to encounter. It is quite realistic that you could encounter some of these heroes in your playthroughs. Well, don’t be greedy and level them up.

  • Ferael
  • Joker
  • Queen
  • Silas
  • Ezio
  • Eluard
  • Brutus
  • Grezhul
  • Rosaline
  • Tasi
  • Thoran
  • Fawkes
  • Nara
  • Belinda
  • Mortas


On this tier, we find the average hero in AFK Arena (from the highest ranks). They are great as complementing heroes for the stronger ones, especially if you can use their abilities in synergy with other abilities. For example, if you have a physical damage hero, you should use the heroes that create weakness in the enemy so your attacks hit harder. Although this is something you should do anyway, regardless of the hero.

  • Respen
  • Nemora
  • Wu Kong
  • Daimon
  • Orthros
  • Hendrik
  • Lyca
  • Lucius
  • Gwyneth
  • Arthur
  • Cecilia
  • Warek
  • Zolrath
  • Torne
  • Tidus
  • Ukyo
  • Flora
  • Isabella
  • Skreg
  • Skriath
  • Saurus
  • Baden
  • Pippa
  • Izold


Now we are getting to the heroes that are becoming quite insignificant. Not that they are bad, they just don’t offer anything new to the team you might have, and they might even hold your team back. You should be careful when you are using these heroes since they have a lot of weaknesses and they will suffer greatly in the later stages of the game. You should replace them as soon as you have better units.

  • Mezoth
  • Nakoruru
  • Numisu
  • Oden
  • Vurk
  • Estrilda
  • Khasos
  • Anoki
  • Theowyn
  • Seirus
  • Drez
  • Gorvo
  • Rigby
  • Ulmus
  • Lorsan
  • Solise
  • Satrana
  • Kaz
  • Thane
  • Oscar
  • Raine


At the bottom of our AFK Arena Tier List, we have the most forgettable heroes we can remember. You should probably ignore these characters completely unless you don’t have any other heroes to play. Other than that you are going to gain nothing from using them. Next, please!

  • Saveas
  • Vedan
  • Morvus
  • Ogi
  • Arden
  • Hogan
  • Ira
  • Golus
  • Silvina
  • Angelo
  • Mirael
  • Niru
  • Ankhira
  • Kelthur
  • Antandra

Who is the strongest hero in AFK Arena?

Elijah & Lailah. It really feels like they are more than one character.  Their skills are getting stronger with every level, and if you manage to get their signature item you are unlocking one of the strongest skills in the game, Blessed Binding. No matter if it’s PvP, PvE, Lab, and Boss you are going to breeze through it with no problem. If you finding it, give it to us, please.


There are two types of players in this game. The one type is the ones that spend a lot of time to get the best heroes and reach the top of their power, to look down at all the casuals that struggle to finish the game. The other ones are the weak ones. You know who you are, but if you are reading this list, it means you are already doing your first steps into becoming an AFK Arena master. Good for you. Remember us when you get to the top.
