If you want to make Leonardo da Vinci 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 Leonardo da Vinci that will give a big boost so I have some recommendations below that you will very likely find interesting.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Signature Item
Engravings are an important part for Leonardo da Vinci and this is probably the main reason why you’re here on this page. Below you will find the optimal Engraving Levels as well as our recommended route how to invest in the Engravings as you normally don’t just have the cores lying around just waiting to max out an Engraving for a hero.
In the case of Leonardo da Vinci you don’t have to invest into any Engravings when we talk about the absolute MINIMAL INVESTMENT to make this hero work. The RECOMMENDED INVESTMENT (the investment you should have in order to be able to make the hero work well enough), which is E36 and for those of you who really want to make Leonardo da Vinci shine the MAXIMUM INVESTMENT (the one that makes sense, there is literally no need to invest further unless you’re a PvP whale and drop a ton of money on the game), which is E62.
The more interesting part, however, is the order how to invest your cores in the different nodes, right? Well, below you will find the perfect order to invest the cores in (simply follows the numbers – the colors of the numbers will show you if this is optimal=green or maximum=blue investment). This helps you invest your cores in the most efficient and economic way and get the most of of them with Leonardo da Vinci:
Spending Order E0-E30
Spending Order E30+
Recommended Artifacts (Now Collections)
Now that artifacts got replaced by the collections in the Ghoulish Gallery, this whole section requires a lot more effort in building the correct collection type with the ideal substats – this lets you fine-tune heroes a lot better but also requires more details in order to work well.
This is the collection you want to run with Leonardo da Vinci (please also mind the recommended collection skill level):
Again, this is also the optimal skill level so I don’t recommend going higher than this as this means you have to sacrifice stats which are more important.
Here are the best stats to put on the collection artifact for Leonardo da Vinci in the offensive slots:
