If you want to make Safiya 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 Safiya 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 Safiya does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Safiya’s Signature Item
Safiya’s Signature Item should be at +20. When first reading about her stacking buff you think this will be crazy strong… but in reality, this buff isn’t stacking up that fast. Getting her Signature Item to +20 is a good choice, no doubt, but only to +20 as the +30 effect is pretty useless because almost never triggered..

Overall it’s recommended to get Safiya’s -/9 furniture set bonus. Safiya Not useful because won’t apply. Extending the pyramid (3/9) won’t trigger as most battles are over before it even ends. The 9/9 increases her ultimate charge but is only useful in really fast team setups.

Warden of the Arcane is the best artifact to run with Safiya in most cases, although you can also consider running Windbinder or Duras Call as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E0.. Do not invest into any engravings here Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
