AFK Arena tier list - the best heroes in each class

Build a team of the strongest heroes with our AFK Arena tier list and claim victory in this hit gacha RPG, even when you really are AFK

Our AFK Arena tier list aims to settle the eternal question: which heroes should you pick for your team. It’s an important question when playing a gacha RPG like AFK Arena, as resources are minimal for those who like to play for free (which is basically all of us). You really don’t want to waste the precious few you have on heroes that you just won’t use in the long run.

But now, you don’t have to, as we’ve compiled a complete AFK Arena tier list, which puts every single hero, in each class, in an easily digestible list that you can quickly scan through to pick your dream team. We’ll include the best tanks, support, warrior, ranger, and mage heroes, and list them by their rank.

We’ll also keep this regularly updated, so you can always pop back whenever there’s a big balance update to see if your favourite hero is finally worth picking. You can also grab yourself some extra resources by checking out our AFK Arena codes list.

Without further delay, here’s our comprehensive AFK Arena tier list.
