The Best Teams In AFK Arena

In this guide here I want to show you several team builds in AFK Arena that work really well and will give you an additional boost.

I know that you likely don’t have all the heroes but you can also use this as a strategy to plan which heroes you’re going to level up and ascend.

Updated the tems with the current meta!

You will find the best teams in the sections:

  • PvE/Campaign
  • PvP/Arena
  • Faction Tower
  • Guild Hunt
  • Twisted Realm Bosses

Best Campaign Team (PvE) In AFK Arena

Strongest Team (Whale P2W)

Without any doubts, this is the strongest team to use in the campaign map with Talene as the main carry. Seh can’t die and will revive all the time while the other heroes will cycle through their ultimate. With the haste boost, Ezizh will keep the enemy team shut down so they will never use their ultimate while your team uses crows control all the time and it’s impossible to kill this team. Downside is, obviously, it’s impossible to build this team without spending a lot of money on AFK Arena Stargazing.

Follow Up PvE Team

This team is not as strong as the one above but you can actually build it more easily with only 2 Hypelestial faction heroes, Mehira and Khazard. It’s not really a F2P team but it will be a lot easier to get if you spend some money on AFK Arena without going all-in.

Khazard will be your carry hero here with Arthur buffing his crits up. Mehira will draw a ton of health and energy during the battle and pop her ultimate a lot of times while Lucius keeps shielding and Rosalina make the whole team cycle through ults really fast (depends what hero has the highest rating).

Very Strong PvE Teams (F2P Friendly)

Now we get to the teams that you can build as a F2P

This team uses Eironn to pull the enemy heroes together and get them into Safiyas burst that can eliminate all of them and debuffs them heavily. Rowan will help to keep your team alive with his potions that also work when he’s down and Lyca buffs your team while Tasi works great for crowd control in this lineup.

Daimon turns out to also make great combo with great survivability and you have the Thoran cheese as well with Ferael keeping enemy ultimate slower and Nara breaking insane ultimates.

You probably heard of this team setup here called “Thoran Cheese” and it also uses Eironn to pull and group up enemies but unlike the above setup using Thoran so they will go into his Retaliation skill and get massive return damage and can be wiped out really fast.

This is also a popular team setup that is designed to get the most damage out of Gwyneth. Arthur buffs her stats, Rowan buffing the team and keeping alive while Rosalina will keep Gwyneth cycling through her ultimate as often as possible. Talene is a good choice if you get her to Mythic (possible as F2P with focusing on Stargazer for some time getting only her). Alternatively you can run Estrilda or Hendrik instead of Talene for the full team buff and pushing enemies away.

Main PvE Teams (F2P)

Here are the best teams that most F2P players have success with and you can run them until the very last chapters of the campaign map, the last ones will get squishy with a lot of RNG but possible to beat.

This team lineup combines grouping enemy heroes with Eironn and a huge damage blast from Belinda. Take care that Rosalina follows Belinda in your setup or it won’t work! Rowan will keep your team alive and buff and Lyca will also give a very solid buff. Fast and clean killing without relying on long battles.

This setup gained a lot of momentum with the Elder Tree stacking and you need Lyca’s Signature Item to deal the damage in this lineup, with Ferael keeping enemies from building energy and crowd control by Rowan and Tasi. Eironn also deals a huge part of the damage here but this setup can lead to timeout against compositions that have a long-lasting setup with healing and shielding.

The most classic F2P lineup here with Lucius shielding and Ferael keeping the enemies from building energy. Rowan keeps the team alive and buffs and Arthur gets the most additional buffing done for Gwyneth who deals the main damage. Solid lineup, but without Rosaline it sometimes just misses that big hammering burst damage from double ultimate of Gwyneth.

Teams Until Chapter 30

These teams here are standard teams for the mid-game but won’t really work higher than Chapter 30

Lucius does the shield and Rowan the healing while Fawkes take out one of the enemy heroes and helps breaking through a shield when you face a lineup with another Lucius. Ferael helps keeping the enemy energy level lower and when Shemira uses her ultimate you normally get the enemy team down. Problem with this lineup is that higher Chapter 30 Shemira will just not deal enough damage anymore to get the enemies down.

This lineup here works as well really well with Rosalina getting Belinda to use her ultimate twice for a high burst damage while Fawkes take out one enemy and Lucius keeps a shield on your team and Rowan supports with potions and buffing.

Best PvP Teams

I always update this list based on the recent Legend’s Champion Season by usage and win rate of the teams.

This is currently the most successful PvP team with highest win rate. Also quite alright to build actually with decent amount of “normal heroes” and Ezizh from the Challenger Store. You have plenty of healing from Talene and Rowan and Ezizh + Tasi shut down the enemy team pretty well.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Switch Talene with Saurus, Athalia or Wu Kong

Super viable team with Talene that can’t die and keeps getting stronger and healing all the time. Orthros can take out several enemies and reduce their haste while using his freezing effect. Athalia can easily snipe out one enemy while Farael does reduce the enemy energy generation and Nara will also snipe another backline here.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Switch Orthros with Thoran
  • Switch Talene with Wu Kong

Also a team really nasty to deal with and 4 heroes that will stand up really long so Flora can deal a ton of damage in the meantime

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Switch Talene with Tasi

This is an alternative for the meta PvP team relying on Ezizh in combination with the Twins and Rowan to cycle his silencing all the time and shut down the enemy team all the time so they can’t use their ultimates.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Switch Lucius with Talene
  • Switch Wu Kong with Mehira, Khazard, Fawkes, Rosalina or Tasi

This setup relies on Eironn pulling enemies together into Safiyas burst to take them all out at once while Tasi uses crowd control and Layca buffing everyone. Nemora can be really important for the passive healing and might even get her ultimate healing through. Big bang burst can be really effective in PvP as well.

This is also a hit-and-run team setup for PvP with Eironn dragging enemy heroes together and Lorsan with Lyca buffing a lot on Gwyneth with the connection and raw stat buff so she can take out most of them at once. Zolrath can be really annoying for the enemy when resetting the battle completely unless the enemy team takes him out fast, which is really hard. oftent times they need to fight that setup more than once and fail.

Best Challenger Teams (F2P)

For those of you who are F2P and don’t have a roaster full of Celestial, Hypogean and Dimensional heroes, here are team setups that I highly recommend for Challenger Mode:

This teams works really well with Eironn draggin all enemies together and Tasi putting them asleep. With Rowan you have healing and buffing as well as the haste buff from Lyca to get your ultimates off fast, where Eironn will take down the enemies with his ultimate. Ferael works well in casting shadows that will suppress the enemies’ ultimates

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Switch Safiya with Feral

Another setup you can use for Challenger Tournament to boost your hourly income which is also quite F2P friendly (Talene from Stargazing, Wu Kong from Labyrinth Store and Athalia from Challenger Store) is this one here:

This team setup works nice with insane amount of direct backline damage. You have Nara who will pull her opposite enemy, Athalia going after her opposite enemy while Ferael suppresses the enemy energy generation. Wu Kong will cast multi copies and Talene keeps everyone alive at an insane rate. This is the best F2P setup you can get right now.

Best Faction Tower Setups

The Faction Tower requires you to build and use setups with one faction only, which can be tricky. These setups here worked best for most players and you can use mercenaries well here to get strong heroes that you haven’t ascended much so far.

Lightbearer Tower

This team makes most sense with Lucius as the tank with providing shield, Rowan hitting up healing and the energy boost from his Signature Item. Fawkes takes out one enemy and makes sure to remove enemy buffs and Rosalina and Belinda will do the double-burst damage that normally win the fight when they get through with it.

Mauler Tower

Brutus with his last stance ability is one of your tanks and makes sure to survive and also takes out summoned things with lower hitpoints. Safiya will make sure to get a high burst on the enemy teams and Skreg can make a nice secondary tank with his knockback. For damage you can choose whatever Maulers you have, I personally like Skriath for his sandstorm and Khasos/Vurk for nice damage output from the back

Wilders Tower

Tasi is mandatory for crowd control, otherwise you can get smacked really hard by some setups. Eironn is a nice damage dealer and drags enemies together and you can either take Nemora for healing or Lyca for the buffs. With Wilders you have a little problems getting solid tanks so use the ones you have ascended the most. Seirus and Ulmus are my choices but Grovo can also work.

Graveborn Tower

Thoran and Grezhul should be your tanks in the first line and Shemira will be the hero that deals the damage and needs to get her ultimate off in the Graveborn Tower. Best choice now is using Ferael to reduce enemy energy generation and Nara as she can snipe a backline here.

Best Guild Hunting Teams *UPDATED*

Standard Wrizz Team

The best lineup that most people run now is around Saurus who will deal insane damage to Wrizz along with Rosalina and Twins buffing constantly. Belinda deals also great damage and you shouldn’t have problems dealing with Wrizz special abilities here. This team will get you the highest damage output, even if you don’t have all of the ascended.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • the only mandatory heroes are Saurus and Twins
  • replace heroes with Rowan and/or Warek if you don’t have them or they are at a low ascension level

Standard Soren Team

Warek will be the bread and butter hero here that will keep Soren from striking your whole team and Talene will deal nice damage and heals up here and there. Saurus is a great damage dealer and the Twins will constantly buff your team and Baden summons his phantoms that stack up. The best team out there and with alternatives for Talene also viable for every player.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Warek is mandatory
  • you can replace Talene/Baden with Rosalina, Rowan, Cecilia or Lorasan

Best Twisted Realm Boss Teams *UPDATED*


The very best lineup to run here will be this one:

As you know, Kane will kill one enemy after 15 seconds, 40 seconds and 65 seconds. With Talene in your team you should turn auto off and slam her ability to get her killed first. After that, you can turn auto on for the whole team and see a decent damage overall. With your Talene upgraded well enough, you can even get her killed every single time and keep your whole team.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • replace Rowan with Grezhul if ascended well
  • swap twins with any other support hero (no damage dealer!)
  • Talene is mandatory for this build, but can be switched for Wu Kong (Kane will only kill one copy)

Alternative setup if you don’t have Talene:


Without Talene you need to have two solid damage dealer in your team as one of them will get killed after 15 seconds into battle. Running Shemira and Belinda works alright here. Turn auto attack off for the first 15 seconds and manually use ultimate on the weaker one (either Shemira or Belinda) to get them killed first.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • swap twins with any other support hero (no damage dealer!)

Demonic Entity

Shemira is vital here and with Rosalina following her the mandatory setup. Rowan will heal some and buff and the twins also do their job. Estrilda as tank is also working well here because she also deals some nice damage and makes the faction buff complete.

The Unhinged

The most powerful team lineup will be:

This is the brute force strategy that simply bypasses the shield of the boss with Saurus and Grezhul dealing a ton of damage. This is simply about damage output and works best right now. Rowan can interrupt abilities.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • You can switch in Baden for Grezhul, the shadows will also stack up really well and protect from the lightning attack
  • Without Saurus run Talene

Ice Shemira

Her strong area of effect damage is really tough and Ezizh as a main key here to have to deny her ability.

The strongest team setup is:


Ezizh will suppress Ice Shemiras ability while the Twins can dispell her debuff. Saurus and Grezhul will deal massive damage along with the interruption of Warek you have a great setup to get a nice score against her. Put Ezizh in the backline to avoid him catching her Ice Beam.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Rowan instead of Warek if you have him ascended well and Warek not
  • Rosalina instead of Grezhul if you don’t have Grezhul well upgraded.

Burning Brute

Thanks to the developers finally did fix Burning Brute, we can start working with a solid team against it.

Here’s the best team lineup to use:

Saurus will be the main damage dealer while Ezizh and Cecilia will lower the damage Burning Brute deals. Also with the whole team being melee and not ranged, they can all get under that dome and deal decent damage.

Possible Alternatives here:

  • Rosalina instead of Cecilia
  • Rowan instead of Warek


So, this is my personal best team builds that I’ve tested for a long time and saw the best results with – I know that most heroes are not that easy to get but if you focus on them they will bring you a lot of joy in the future 🙂
