Best Heroes Tier List in AFK Journey (June 2024) – with Phraesto

AFK Journey has quite some interesting new approaches and will offer a ton of heroes as well so this list here should help you decide which heroes to focus on as they work in every team and which ones work only for particular setups (and the ones that never really work well).

I know that many please think that AFK Journey is simply a re-skin of the brutal hit AFK Arena, but there are a lot of different elements to it that make the game very promising for me and also to be honest, I think there has only been a handful of mobile games overall in the last 12 months that I enjoyed as much off the bat and open so frequently during the day just to try to cheese another AFK Stage than this.

What Are The Best Heroes in AFK Journey (Tier List)

Alright let’s dive into it. Please mind that there are huge changes between the different closed beta iterations so this list changes as well a lot! Please check back here when a new beta starts to be sure that you go the right direction. Also, please mind to check out the best teams for the different modes in AFK Journey here, this is sometimes more important than using the top heroes here and helps you a lot.

First things first, do NOT stargaze him and since he is available in the Guid Shop you can wait some more time to see more test results. His kit is designed to be a support and energy battery with debuffs and damage. The 1-copy tests don't look very great for me and most of his kit is locked behind is EX Weapon and Hero Focus so for most players I think working on Scarlita and Reinier is a much better option until we really see where he lands in my tier list. We will invest more money here to fully test him but I can already tell that he is an endgame hero that requires a ton of investment. I hope this helps you evaluate him at the current point..

Can snowball heavily with his energy recovery when he kills and his ability to insta-kill enemies with low health make him a great damage dealer. Small word of advice here, he needs to be Mythic+ or even higher to really start doing a great job but you need him a lot against Dream Realm bosses so one of the best choices fro your Dream Realm shop purchases.

Great to disrupt the enemy backline and already works without ascended much, even with 1 copy. Also important for Dream Realm in almost all comps so get him first from the Guild Store.

Healing and buffing. Got more balancing in the past months before global release but is still very useful practically everywhere although his range is not the full map anymore. Can well take in when Rowan is not healing enough anymore and good in so many different modes in AFK Journey, including Dream Realm, that you really can build him and max him without regrets.

Summon is really useful and she can cc and damage AoE which makes her a great fit. She will carry you in story and AFK Stages a long time, easily into the 700+ so building and ascending her is no mistake and goes a long way and even investing in her exclusive and focus skill is a great option.

Not just a classic hero in AFK Arena, also in AFK Journey. Has pretty much the same role as in AFK Arena being a energy battery and his healing mechanics are also nice. Can sometimes be a little weak healer, espcially when not Mythic+ or higher but for his energy battery role he doesn't need much ascension.

Don't be fooled by his early performance where he is bad - once you build his Exclusive he becomes incredibly strong by gathering enemies and debuffing them. Still, there are other S-Rank heroes to carry earlier so keep that in mind when you get chests where you can choose S-Rank heroes to build a hero like Thoran or Cecia first!.

She summons and also has some cross-synergies with Cecia and latest at the point where you need multiple teams she will be valuable. If you are building Cecia right now you might not need to go all-in on her banners but she is a good hero with raising value towards later and I invested the money to get her earily and I love her honestly. Except Dream Realm useful in all modes actually..

Great healing with full range of the whole battlefield. I'd still prefer Smokey but sometimes you just need a healer with a ton of range so early in AFK Journey not the strongest one. She picks up a lot tough when ascended higher when you get ehr universal damage reduction for the whole team which is huge.

Deals AoE damage and buffs/debuffs and along other AoE damage dealers in AFK Journey a really strong hero. One of the best non-S-Rank heroes and easy to ascend with the multiple sources you can get her copies. Also, along Cecia a great combo in many stages.

vala
Vala
A+
The way Vala can deal with backline heroes in AFK Journey is unreached and valuable in almost all cases, often enough crucially important to deal with certain setups. She is the first banner hero with the global release so you can easily pull and build her and once at the highest ascension stages where she can turn invisible, she takes out backline hero after backline hero and is also a good damage dealer against Dream Realm bosses so getting her copies is nothing bad, espcially with the amount of pulls you get early on..

Really good single damage and control effects that I really like so far. She, however, needs either a full magic team or other control heroes along with quite some invest to run that well..
Disclaimer:I am still testing so there is a chance I might revoke some parts. I believe as F2P your don't necessarily NEED her but she is for sure a better F2P pull than Flora

Brutus

Primarily great for his invincibility period that can make him survive crazy bursts or help your team to survive a little longer. Technially he can be a hero you don*t ascend much to fulfil that role. I have to disgree with many tier lists for AFK Journey that place him in the lower tiers, with his invicibility and along heroes like Rowan and Smokey he can easily tank you into the AFK Journey Stages 700+ and also do a lot in certain mode fights where you need to overcome high burst damage.

Actually interesting mechanics but honestly not a hero that you really want to invest in the banner and needs a good invest overall to work well. Wait it out and pull him through regular invite. The main parts here that I don't like is that he is designed to run with Alsa who already needs a heavy invest to run well with his crowd control and on top of that even when heavily inevsted to, he is still a A-Rank hero and squishy in many situatios where he dies so quickly that he can't provide much..

Exactly the same as in AFK Arena, shields and tanks which is nice very early but later just not strong enough to really tank by himself. You actually won't use him anymore once you have a tank like Brutus Thoran or Granny ready and a little bit ascended and you will pull copies anyway but don't buy any in the shop!.

Conclusion

I am so excited for the global release of AFK 2 Journey as the beta was so much fun already with having the original AFK Arena feeling back but with new elements that gives you the feeling it’s also a new game at the same point as well. I participate in the beta stages so please understand that changes here are quite drastic between the beta stages but I hope this gives you a good idea what’s happening so you can enjoy the beta stages to the fullest or just keep an eye on what’s happening until AFK Journey is released globally.
