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

afk arena best zaphrael build

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

Zaphrael’s Signature Item

Zaphrael’s Signature Item should be at +10. Nice damage boost but wouldn’t recommend going higher than +10 as the other unlocks higher than that aren’t that much more and his role is to counter Lucretia overall and nothing else in the current meta..

Furniture Recommendation

Overall it’s recommended to get Zaphrael’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Zaphrael full furniture set will improve the disruption and survivability of Zaphrael so using him frequently makes the 9/9 a good choice.

Recommended Artifacts

Windbinder is the best artifact to run with Zaphrael in most cases, although you can also consider running Warden of the Arcane or Winged Warden as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available.


In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E30.. Zaphrael will actually do pretty alright with E30 and I don’t see much reason to level him up higher. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
