afk arena best hodgkin build

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

Hodgkin’s Signature Item

Hodgkin’s Signature Item should be at +30. With his general mechanics, you can’t lose when getting his Signatur Item up. It will add great self-heal when he ultimate and also give that healing with up to 75% of his max HP to an injured ally. His +30 SI might be debatable, but I think for his snowballing ability in late game it’s extremely viable and will make him a great addition for your team..

Furniture Recommendation

Overall it’s recommended to get Hodgkin’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Hodgkin Both his furniture bonus are on point. The 3/9 will make his debuff permanent after using his ultimate and the 9/9 will make the enemy debuff stronger and also add damage every time he ultimate again which compliments Hodgkin’s overall mechanics very well.

Recommended Artifacts

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


In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E60.. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
