Best Build for Brutus in AFK Arena (Artifacts, Furniture, Signature Item, Emblems)

afk arena best brutus build

If you want to make Brutus 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 Brutus 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 Brutus does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here.

Brutus’s Signature Item

Brutus’s Signature Item should be at +20. Long story short, get his +20 as fast as possible because Brutus will become a nice niche role hero later in the game. The +30 SI isn’t worth it but with the +20 he will gain a lot of survivability in his niche (big burst survivor) role.. If you want to learn more about my recommended priority how you should invest into Signature Items in AFK Arena, check out my SI Priority Guide here.

Furniture Recommendation

Overall it’s recommended to get Brutus’s 3/9 furniture set bonus. Brutus 3/9 is nice to survive high burst damage but you will not need the 9/9 furniture bonus at all. 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

Barricade is the best artifact to run with Brutus in most cases, although you can also consider running Duras Blade or Waistband of Resilence as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available.


In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E0.. Do not invest into any engravings here, his role towards end-game is survivng a fatal blow and nothing more, there’s no need to invest any engravings to make him do that. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
