AFK Arena - Guild Wars guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 13th, 2019

Ok, so if you're like me, you've been playing (and sometimes waiting) your way through AFK Arena, only to learn there's a lot more to it than there appears on the surface. There's guilds, a PvP arena, and all sorts of other systems and game modes to pay attention to, and–quite frankly–it can be confusing.

Today, I want to demystify a new mode in AFK Arena, Guild Wars. This mode pits guild members against each other in a ranking competition. The cool thing about this mode is you don’t have to have super powered up units to compete. To do well in Guild Wars, even as a free player, look no further! We have everything you need here.

The equalizer

In Guild Wars, players from one guild fight the members of another, and the guild that can beat more opposing players wins. It’s a pretty simple concept, but it’s a surprisingly hard mode to balance.

Although players can be at various states of progress in AFK Arena, the game evens things out in Guild Wars by making all units max level with mythic level gear equipped to them. This way, any two players can face off and be reasonably evenly matched.

Numbers game

Just because all players are the same level doesn’t exactly mean Guild Wars is a fair or balanced mode though. AFK Arena doesn’t make any balancing changes to account for the varying levels of ascension that heroes can be at, but there’s also something else more worrisome.

As of this writing, Guild Wars overwhelmingly favors guilds that have more members than their opponents. So, if you enter a Guild War and your guild is smaller than your opponent’s, just know it’s unlikely that you’ll win.

Deep bench is best

Ok, so now that we’ve covered the sort of unique setup of Guild Wars, let’s talk about the actual fighting. Players can challenge any opponent ranked above them on the Guild War ladder, and these fights require you to put together a whopping fifteen fighters to try and take them down.

These fights are separated out into three rounds of typical 5v5 combat, and whoever wins two or more fights is the victor. With this being the case, Guild Wars actually favor players who have saved a diverse set of units as opposed to anyone who has sacrificed lower tier units to power-level one or two high tier units. Having more units gives you more flexibility to spread power and options across fights, so use that to your advantage.

It’s elementary

Because of how AFK Arena maxes out every hero to make fights more even, elemental bonuses in this mode are as important as ever.

Elemental bonuses activate based on the makeup of your team. In short, the more units you have of the same element on one squad, the higher their stats will be. A good, basic strategy using this involves just building teams of five fighters that counter the strongest element of the opposing team. This should give you a distinct advantage in any Guild Wars fight.

Today, I want to demystify one of the more unique game modes in AFK Arena, the Arcane Labyrinth. This is a quasi-roguelite mode where you take the units you've been powering up and try to battle your way through three floors of a dungeon. It just so happens that this dungeon is full of super powerful enemies, amazing loot, and permadeath. If you've been looking around for tips on how to navigate this labyrinth successfully, then look no further! We have everything you need here.
