If you want to make Salaki 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 Salaki 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 Salaki does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Salaki’s Signature Item
Salaki’s Signature Item should be at +30. Salaki is for the later stages of Mauler Tower helpful and his +30 Signature Item gives him a great boost in survivability, but nothing to invest in earlier.. 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 Salaki’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Salaki is also a hero that will only be really useful for Faction Tower so no early invest! His furniture is, however, a great contribution to his kit, removing control effects (3/9) and even neglecting damage with his passive skill (9/9).

Seraphic Tide is the best artifact to run with Salaki in most cases, although you can also consider running Tidebearer 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 E30.. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
