AFK Arena Artifact tier list: Best Artifacts for every hero

AFK Arena Artifact Tier List

Equipping your heroes with Artifacts in AFK Arena can significantly enhance their abilities. However, the sheer variety and quantity of Artifacts can be overwhelming. To help you make the right choice, here’s an AFK Arena artifact tier list that includes the best Artifacts for all characters in the game.

AFK Arena features two categories of Artifacts: Dura’s Artifacts, which are universal and can be utilized by any hero, and Class Artifacts, which are tailored to specific Hero Classes.

These Artifacts play a pivotal role in enhancing your heroes’ performance by offering a range of stats such as CRIT, HP, DEF, ATK, and ACC and you need to choose the right one for your characters based on their roles and abilities. This is similar to other RPGs like Genshin Impact, where you also have to customize your characters with suitable Artifacts to maximize their damage output.

To help you with this, here’s a tier list of AFK Arena Artifacts which also covers the best Artifacts for every character.

Class-specific Artifacts can be further enhanced by completing their Trails of God stages.
