Full Hero Artifact List For AFK Arena – 2024 with Collections

Artifacts are unique gear items that will boost your hero a lot more than any other equipt with certain special benefits. In this guide I want to show you all you need to know about the different artifacts, including where you will find them and also give you an overview what artifact you should use on which hero.

All Artifacts & How To Get Them

There are 7 different artifacts in AFK Arena and you can equip on any hero plus 13 class-specific artifacts – here’s a general tier list. You will find a detailed tier list for every hero individually below.

By the way, before we start… please don’t forget to check out my frequently updated list of active gift codes in AFK Arena here, there’s always at least one code active that will give you some free rewards.

The artifact slot now works with collections, so please take this as a beginner reference for artifacts and find the best collection setup for all heroes linked in the lower part below of this article!

dura's eye
Dura's Eye
S+
Dura's Eye is the second artifact you can unlock and it will boost attack speed, critical damage and also haste at the fully enhanced level. It's a perfect fit any hero that deals damage and can deal critical damage for a nice extra boost. You can find it in Secrets of the Forest in Peaks of Time.
windbinder
Windbinder
S
Windbinder is the Mage Class artifact and it will give the heroes you equipped it on 250/300 Energy at the start of a fight and take 200 Energy once they have cast the ultimate for the first time. It's basically super-charging them so they will be able to ultimate fast at the beginning of a battle..
dura's call
Dura's Call
S
Dura's Call is the third artifact available and will generate additional energy for the hero that has this artifact equipped - the best use is for heroes that have really strong impact ultimates that you want to charge as fast as possible. You can find it in Rest in Peace in Peaks of Time.
chaos bringer
Chaos Bringer
A+
Chaos Bringer is exclusive for Warrior Class heroes and normally it outclasses Dura's Blade in terms of damage unless you have battles that last the full 90 seconds, like Twisted Realm or Guild Hunting battles. First choice for every warrior hero..
barricade
Barricade
A
Barricade in a tank class artifact and it helps other heroes to survive by letting your tank jump in to mitigate the damage and place a shield on the protected hero. The thing is, you need a tank that can handle a lot or this can kill your main tank easily..
tidebearer
Tidebearer
A
Tidebearer will give the hero who equipped it a shield of 30% max health every 15 seconds in the battle for 5 seconds and converts the leftover shield after 15 seconds into Energy (maximum of 120 points). So, you can keep your support heroes either save or let them gain extra Energy. It's nice to prevent the terms of Dura's Call when multiple heroes have it in your lineup and lets you also get support heroes in the frontline..
dual divinity
Dual Divinity
A
Dual Divinity is the third ranger class artifact and is strong but also niche as you need to use it on a hero that will fight on the enemy side of the battlefield and returns up to 50% increased damage and reduces damage take to up to 50% for the first 35 seconds into battle..
verdant longbow
Verdant Longbow
A
Verdant Longbow is the second ranger artifact and it's a tank killer. Basically every 3rd/4th attack will deal double damage and ignore defense rating, this makes it great for backline ranger heroes that don't require the extra survivability from Shroud of Verdure and give them great possibility to take out enemy frontline heroes..
dura's blade
Dura's Blade
B+
Dura's Blade will raise the attack stats for the hero every 3s until the end of the battle and makes it a perfect artifact for heroes that deal constant damage and you have a battle that last for the full 90 seconds. You can find it in Vipers Marsh in Peaks of Time.
warden of the arcane
Warden of the Arcane
B
Warden of the Arcane is the second mage class artifact and will deal additional damage every 12 seconds. The damage is not that crazy and compared to the other mage class artifact this is for sure not that powerful. Only use as an alternative artifact on AoE heroes..
shroud of verdure
Shroud of Verdure
B
Shroud of Verdure will give the hero a shield initially when into battle and also raise their attack rating for the 8 seconds the shield is active. This helps especially heroes that have problems surviving and can get countered easily with heroes that will deal a lot of damage to them..
oceanic strings
Oceanic Strings
B
The Oceanic Strings is the third support class artifact and will heal the most injured hero whenever a normal attack or ability (except ultimate skill) is hitting from the hero that has equipped this artifact. To make it easier, it will heal almost all the time for a small amount and always the hero that has the lowest hitpoints, so it's a crazy healing engine. This sounds super powerful but there are actually not that many compositions that can use it. Setups with good healing won't need it and the healing is not that much to replace a full healing setup but can be really helpful on certain heroes..
waistband of resilence
Waistband of resilence
B
.
life's limit
Life's Limit
C
Life's Limit is the third tank class artifact and it will deal an enemy dealing damage to the wielder an AoE damage that will ignore armor and also reduce Haste. The description is super vague so we will see how this will work in practice..
dura's chalice of vitality
Dura's Chalice of Vitality
C
Dura's Chalice of Vitality restores health every second for the firest up to 45 seconds of the battle and unlike Dura's Drape this is a great way to keep tanks alive. You can find it in the Savage Wastes in Peaks of Time.
winged warden
Winged Warden
D
Winged Warden is the third mage class artifact and will steal the health regeneration and energy recovery of an enemy when the enemy deals damage to the wearing hero for the first time. Really vague description and not that versatile overall..
pauldron of burning fury
Pauldron of Burning Fury
D
Pauldron of Burning Fury is the third warrior class artifact and great for warrior class heroes to directly counter when getting dealt damage that also scales by the health of the wearer already lost. Great for heroes that go into direct combat but there's not that many that can use it well, tbh..
dura's grace
Dura's Grace
D
Dura's Grace in an artifact that will cast a shield and prevent mind control when fully enhanced. It's working good for heroes that can use some additional survivability either in the frontline or as they fight behind enemy lines. It's the first artifact you can find in Peaks of Time and in the first real, Ranhorn's Strife.
seraphic tide
Seraphic Tide
D
Seraphic Tide is the second support class artifact and is not that useful for support heroes compared to Tidebearer simply for the reason that support heroes with additional survivability are more worth than that small healing/damage combined with the haste buff/debuff that doesn't make that much of a difference..
dura's drape
Dura's Drape
F
Dura's Drape will give your hero additional health recovery during the fight. I personally don't find this artifact crazy helpful but heroes that benefit from health regeneration find good use in this artifact. You can find it in the Far Frontier in Peaks of Time.
dura's conviction
Dura's Conviction
F
Dura's Conviction is the perfect artifact for damage dealing backline heroes that will not only raise their attack stats when there's no enemy hero around, it will also use a shockwave to protect the hero from enemies and pushes nearby enemy heroes back. You can find it in the Solar Plane in Peaks of Time.

What Heroes To Use The Artifacts On

You can equip an artifact on several heroes, depending how much you enhanced it. Each hero has a clear first-choice (with very few exceptions) artifact that you can see below in the table.

As you probably have more heroes than slots on the artifact, you might also consider equipping a secondary or third choice artifact instead of not equipping any artifact on the hero.

Please mind that the list here in alphabetic order 🙂

Please also mind that I also have included the ideal artifact now in the best hero tier list for easy access here.
