AFK Arena: Hero Ascension Priority

You can ascend your heroes in AFK Arena to increase their tier and statistics, however, some heroes should be prioritised.


Players can enjoy role-playing and exciting elements in this popular mobile game, AKF Arena. It takes place in the fictional world of Esperia and you are able to acquire different types of heroes, each of which have unique skills and abilities. You can create several teams of various heroes to complete stages and defeat enemies to receive rewards.

The game currently features more than 40 different heroes for you to obtain and play with. You can obtain additional heroes by summoning them through the summoning portal. Keep in mind that you may acquire copies of heroes already in your collection. Fortunately, you can use these copies along with other heroes to ascend specific heroes.

What is Ascension?

Ascension is the procedure of upgrading your heroes’ statistics, tier and level cap. Keep in mind that you have to sacrifice some of your heroes in order to ascend a specific hero in your collection. Every faction and every tier in the game has its own costs.

This means that some factions and tiers may be less expensive to ascend than heroes. The higher tiers and more powerful factions’ costs are usually higher than the others. After you have ascended a hero, all the resources and gears equipped on the sacrificed heroes will be transferred to your inventory. You will thus not lose any of your items and equipment.
