If you want to make Scarlet 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 Scarlet 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 Scarlet does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Scarlet’s Signature Item
Scarlet’s Signature Item should be at +30. Scarlet’s +30 Signature Bonus is what you’re after as it will deal HP-based percentage damage that scales really well towards the end-game and will make Scarle run so much more effectively the further you get in AFK Arena. It’s not too high priority as she will becmone more important later in the game and the ones above are more important earlier in AFK Arena..

Overall it’s recommended to get Scarlet’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Scarlet’s both furniture bonuses are insane with Scarlet! Her 3/9 will give her 50% more ultimate skill damage with every use permanently for up to 250% boost. This already is insane but the extra strikes she will get from the full 9/9 bonus is just insane and will make her snowball a lot crazier than you can imagine.

Windbinder is the best artifact to run with Scarlet in most cases, although you can also consider running Duras Call 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 E60. (but you can also get the first sweet spot at E33). Scarlet is really hungry for stats and needs haste to keep rolling her ultimate skill and once you start investing in her your goal should be to get her to E33 with investing heavily into her minor MP node for the secondary AS stat. As she’s vital for so many boss setups, you’ll nor regret the investment but you want to get her to E60 in the long run for late-game to get the stats for her.
