If you want to make Gorvo 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 Gorvo 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 Gorvo does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Gorvo’s Signature Item
Gorvo’s Signature Item should be at +20. Gorvo has an absolutely solid Signature Item, especially the +20 SI that will convert the remaining shield into energy. The +30 is debatable, I’d say not necessary but can also be something to think about.. 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 Gorvo’s 3/9 furniture set bonus. Gorvo 3/9 is really nice if you have the Signature Item +30, otherwise not an investment worth it. Normaly players should stay away from investing in his furniture. 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 Gorvo in most cases, although you can also consider running Waistband of Resilence or Duras Grace as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E33. (but you can also get the first sweet spot at E11). All engraving bonuses scales up well with his kit, the abilities and the stats as well. Still, Gorvo is no hero that most players will need at that upgrade scale so for most players a reasonable invest here is absolutely okay Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
