If you want to make Oden 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 Oden 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 Oden does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Oden’s Signature Item
Oden’s Signature Item should be at +30. Oden has a useful skill from his Signature Item and the +20 makes it really burn. With the full effect, you will give him a strong position in many meta teams.. 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 Oden’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Oden’s 80% energy reduction of the 3/9 furniture set is insane while the full furniture will apply that effect consistently. If you use Oden, I would take both actually. 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
Warden of the Arcane is the best artifact to run with Oden in most cases, although you can also consider running Windbinder or Duras Eye as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E41. (but you can also get the first sweet spot at E16). Oden is the other Graveborn carry next to Grezhul and the main disable in the Alna/Graveborn compositions. The beginning investment here for E16 is 5 in all major nodes plus ATK and 3 in minor MP for secondary haste and secondary crit. From here E33 with 5 in all major nodes and MP minor nodes to gain more extra haste and crit. The goal here is to get him to E41 with more investment into the minor ATK and CDA nodes as E60 is good but not mandatory to run him well. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
