AFK Arena Leveling Guide for Beginners

Overview

Welcome to the leveling guide for newbies for AFK Arena. We will be going over what you should know and things to pay attention to.

Levels and Cap

The current highest level cap is 365 (there are 25 ascended tier heroes and counting for future patches). You can only do this by leveling 5 heroes to 240 and then directly leveling up the Resonating Crystal. After upgrading a hero to the maximum tier will add 5 more levels to the cap beyond 240.

Here are the tiers:

  • Common – These are green heroes that you never use and you can retire them for extra purple powder.
  • Legendary – These are good heroes that have a level cap of 160. They will not go beyond 160. Hogan, the starter is in this category.
  • Ascended – These are the good purple heroes that have a level cap of 240 and can be upgraded further to 365 with the resonating crystal.

Leveling Your Heroes

When it comes to leveling your heroes, the most experience will come from the AFK rewards you get daily and also the reward chest you can retrieve at any time. Just make sure you login every 12 hours to get the chest rewards as that is the cap.

Going through the regular story mode will also yield hero experience. Doing the Arcane Labyrinth daily will also get you some extra hero experience.

You will sometimes get an hourglass from free gifts and events that grants you hours worth of AFK rewards similar to the treasure chest rewards. Those will also give you hero experience to level up your heroes.

Hero Essence

 

When you level your hero to various levels, you will need hero essence to get past that cap. That cap also indicates that you can unlock or upgrade a skill of your hero. The current break point levels are:

  • 11 – 1116 gold, 417 hero experience, 10 hero essence.
  • 21 – 4172 gold, 888 hero experience, 40 hero essence.
  • 41 – 8665 gold, 2706 hero experience, 100 hero essence.
  • 61 – 20,934 gold, 9447 hero experience, 250 hero essence.
  • 81 – 40,000 gold, 24,000 hero experience, 500 hero essence.
  • 101 – 50,000 gold, 39,000 hero experience, 1200 hero essence.
  • 121 – 139,000 gold, 144,000 hero experience, 3000 hero essence.
  • 141 – 284,000 gold, 395,000 hero experience, 6000 hero essence.
  • 161 – 376,773 gold, 679,000 hero experience, 12,000 hero essence.
  • 181 – 436,022 gold, 995,000 hero experience, 25,000 hero essence.
  • 201 – 491,000 gold, 1,391,000 hero experience, 30,000 hero essence.
  • 221 – 543,000 gold, 1,896,000 hero experience, 40,000 hero essence

To get an ascended hero to 240 will require a total of 118,100 hero essence. You will also need more hero essence when further upgrading them past 240 using the resonating crystal.

Below is the full table up to level 240.

Retiring Heroes

When you acquire heroes that you prefer, you can retire current heroes and get refunds on gold, hero experience and essence at the cost of 20 diamonds.

Player Experience

You get player experience via AFK rewards as well. Currently, there isn’t a bonus for being a high level player aside from quest rewards, but it does give you a good idea of the player’s playtime and character strength. A higher player level means they have higher level heroes, which are great friends to add.
