If you want to make Astar perform at peak performance in AFK Arena, you need to run the right built. While many players think simply maxing out will do the trick (well, not too wrong), there are certain sweetspots with Astar that will give a big boost so I have some recommendations below that you will very likely find interesting.
Important! If you want to check how well Astar does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Astar’s Signature Item
Astar’s Signature Item should be at +20. Astar’s Signature Item works really nice and enhances her ultimate ability to not only heal your allies, also start dealing damage to enemies. The +20 Signature item adds burning which is also effective but the increasing damage of the +30 feels not strong enough right now for the investment minding Astar’s role in your team which is not damage dealing in the first place..

Overall it’s recommended to get Astar’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Astar’s furniture set will keep her flame seeds active on enemies and also helps spreading them more. One can discuss if the 9/9 should be recommended but I feel how her kit works and you use her frequently it’s worth the investment… If you want to learn more about in what order to unlock your heroes furniture sets, check out my furniture priority guide here. Recommended Artifacts
Tidebearer is the best artifact to run with Astar in most cases, although you can also consider running Oceanic Strings or Duras Call as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E13.. E13 is actually a solid invest to get some additional Haste and Accuracy that contribute well without investing too much Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
