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

afk arena best silas build

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

Silas’s Signature Item

Silas’s Signature Item should be at +30. It’s just crazy what his SIgnature Item does! It simply blocks the health regeneration of the enemy team automatically for every percent of health they lose. No-brainer to invest in!. 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 Silas’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Silas’ furniture offers great attack damage and speed buff and will boost the heroes around him a lot and give them an incredible boost.

Recommended Artifacts

Duras Call is the best artifact to run with Silas in most cases, although you can also consider running Tidebearer or Oceanic Strings as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available.


In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E60. (but you can also get the first sweet spot at E13). Silas is also mandatory for Alna/Graveborn setups so your beginner investment should be E13 with 5 in DEF & ATK and 3 in minor MP node for secondary haste. From here go into the minor HASTE node to get him to E30 to unlock his first effect. Goal for him is E60 for the damage reduction on all allies in his cloud but that’s more of a late-game investment.
