AFK Arena Wishlist Priorities: All the Must-Have Wishlist Heroes

Anastasios Antoniadis

In the labyrinthine world of AFK Arena, collecting and upgrading heroes is at the core of your journey. One pivotal feature that aids this progression is the Noble Tavern’s Wishlista game-changing mechanic for targeted hero collection. Unlocked after conquering stage 4-4, this tool becomes an integral part of your gameplay. But how do you maximize its benefits? What heroes should you prioritize? This comprehensive guide tackles it all, diving deep into each faction’s best picks for your Wishlist.

How the Wishlist Works

The Wishlist is a feature of the Noble Tavern that increases the pull rate of specific heroes when they’re placed on the list. For the wishlist choices to be in effect, you will have your Wishlist full. Normally, your chance to pull an elite hero is 4.61%, split into 4.41% for the four core factions and 0.2% for Celestials and Hypogeans. With more than 70 heroes in the four core factions of AFK Arena, your chances of pulling a specific hero are less than 0.1% (around 0.063%).

Now the official response from Lilith is that when your Wishlist is full, the 4.41% chance will only be spread across heroes in your Wishlist. With 20 heroes in your Wishlist, we get 4.41/20 = 0.2205% for a specific hero in your Wishlist, which is 3.5 times more. But the best part is that you will get the hero you want no matter what (unless you have reached a point where you add placeholders to the Wishlist).

Keep in mind that you need eight copies of each hero to ascend them to the ascended tier and since increasing the stars of ascended heroes only increases stats by 2.5%, it’s a good idea to swap when you reach that point.

Eventually, you should consider adding some legendary heroes to your Wishlist so that you have enough fodder to ascend others to “Ascended.”

After completing stages 4-4, the Wishlist is unlocked quite early and is a core mechanic for collecting and upgrading heroes for progression.

Now, without further ado, let’s see what my Wishlist for a new account looks like.

Lightbearers Wishlist

Key Heroes to Prioritize

  • Rowan: The best energy recovery hero, essential for all game modes.
  • Belinda: A good early-game carry but falls off later.

Consider These Alternatives

  • Rosaline: Great for energy provision to main carry heroes.
  • Fawkes & Cecilia: Good choices to replace Estrilda and Hendrik.
  • Gwyneth: High AoE burst carry.

Niche Picks

  • Raine: Recently relevant for boss damage, especially in Twisted Realm.

Heroes to Avoid

  • Estrilda: Lacks long-term utility compared to others.

Wilders Wishlist

Key Heroes to Prioritize

  • Eironn: Meta-defining hero, great for PvE and PvP.
  • Tasi: Excellent crowd control.

Consider These Alternatives

  • Lyca: Provides team haste and good tanking ability.
  • Saurus: Best hero for bosses and good for PvE.

Niche Picks

  • Pippa: RNG-dependent but useful for repeated stage attempts.

Heroes to Avoid

  • Nemora: Outclassed by other Wilder heroes.

Maulers Wishlist

Key Heroes to Prioritize

  • Safiya: Excellent synergy with heroes like Eironn.
  • Skriath: Strong mage hero, even stronger with 3/9 furniture skill.

Consider These Alternatives

  • Skreg: Revamped and now leads dive teams.
  • Tidus: Great for Maulers Tower.

Niche Picks

  • Numisu: Solid support but not a priority.

Heroes to Avoid

  • Brutus: Has lost his meta-relevance.

Graveborn Wishlist

Key Heroes to Prioritize

  • Daimon: Replaces Shemira as the main carry.
  • Ferael: One of the best support carries. Get him to 9/9 Furniture.

Consider These Alternatives

  • Silas: The only Graveborn support, precious.
  • Thoran: Good for high-level deficit teams.

Niche Picks

  • Izold: Requires specific builds with Silas but can be potent.

Heroes to Avoid

  • Grezhul: Grezhul is amazing but only relevant for the endgame Twisted Realm.

Conclusion

Navigating the Noble Tavern Wishlist in AFK Arena can be overwhelming, but prioritizing heroes based on your game stage and goals can yield tremendous results. Whether you’re focusing on Lightbearers for early gains or investing in Graveborn for the long run, this guide aims to clarify the choices before you. Remember, as new heroes get introduced, keep an eye out for updates that could shift the meta, and adjust your Wishlist accordingly. Happy summoning!
