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

afk arena best thesku build

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

Thesku’s Signature Item

Thesku’s Signature Item should be at +10. Thesku is a tough spot here… The +10 is a no-brainer. A nice shield that auto-enables plus a nice debuff against enemies attacking Thesku, don’t think twice especially if you#re earlier in the game! This will make him a carry even in mid-game. My problem with the +20 is that the additional shield won’t change that much although the damage and defense debuff of +30 is really nice. But keeping in mind that Thesku is not that main priority end-game, you rather want to keep him at +10.

Furniture Recommendation

Overall it’s recommended to get Thesku’s 3/9 furniture set bonus. Thesku 3/9 will make Thesku stronger where he lacks, enabling his stun with his ultimate and adding one mark to all enemies helps to get enough. The 9/9 reads nice and will give him a 2nd life where he would have died but without his abilities he can’t add marks and enable stun with his ultimate so I don’t see the investment of 6 additional furniture items justified here tbh, especially as Thesku is no hero with a big role end-game in AFK Arena, more mid and early game. I recommend taking 3/3. If you want to learn more about in what order to unlock your heroes furniture sets, check out my furniture priority guide here.

Recommended Artifacts

Windbinder is the best artifact to run with Thesku in most cases, although you can also consider running Winged Warden 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 E0.. Do not invest into any engravings here Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
