Best Build for Orthros in AFK Arena (Artifacts, Furniture, Signature Item, Emblems)

afk arena best orthros build

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

Orthros’s Signature Item

Orthros’s Signature Item should be at +30. His Signature Item adds freeze and also reduces enemy haste a lot and this makes him survive longer and a more durable hero to use when he can be squishy at times without a Signature Item..

Furniture Recommendation

Overall it’s recommended to get Orthros’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Orthros’ furniture is effective picks if you have Orthros surviving and get his ultimate going more than once. Squishy but strong and if you set your Orthos into action right a beast, but that’s not for every player.

Recommended Artifacts

Barricade is the best artifact to run with Orthros 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 E30.. Although not investent here is mandatorily needed, it scales with stats and the further you push, the more performance you will squeeze out of him. Don’t overdo it, though, and I think E30 should be the maximum looking at how expensive further investments get. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
