If you want to make Edwin 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 Edwin 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 Edwin does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Edwin’s Signature Item
Edwin’s Signature Item should be at +20. Edwin seems to work really well with SI +20 already so you don’t have to invest all the way with him although the description of his SI +30 reads really strong, it wont add too much as it’s limited to his own ATK.. 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 Edwin’s 3/9 furniture set bonus. Don’t get me wrong, the 9-set furniture effect is cool, but as you don’t use Edwin much outside Abyss and Cursed Realm and there this is not really working much so take the low-hanging fruit with the 3-set furniture bonus and you’re good to go.

Waistband of Resilence is the best artifact to run with Edwin in most cases, although you can also consider running Barricade or Lifes Limit as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E60. (but you can also get the first sweet spot at E30). E30 will be the minimum invest to run Edwin for Abyssal and CR and you can then ramp it up towards E60 to gain the full benefits, but that’s the max you should take it.
