AFK Journey – The Ultimate Arena PVP Guide

Intro to Arena Battle Mode

Engage in PVP Battles: Players can use Arena Tickets to challenge other players within their server. Victories in these battles earn Arena Points for ascending to higher tiers.

Ticket Mechanics: Players receive 4 free arena tickets daily and have the option to purchase up to 5 tickets using diamonds. As players reach higher tiers, they unlock more free tickets. Click the “+” icon next to the arena ticket counter to claim additional free tickets (see visual demo below).

Opponent Selection: Upon initiating a challenge, players can select 1 opponent out of 3 provided choices. Players also have the opportunity to refresh opponent choices 5-7 times, depending on their tier.

Defense Formation: Set up a strong Formation for defense against incoming player challenges, as victories or defeats in defensive battles also impact your Arena Points.

Unlock Rewards: Beyond the direct rewards tied to daily, weekly, and Arena tier advancements, players can also unlock perks from daily quests, guild quests, and growth trial by participating in Arena battle mode!

Make sure to use up all your arena tickets daily!

How Arena Points Work

You gain points from all successful battles, including victory in challenges and successful defenses against other player’s challenge.

Vice versa, you lose points from defeats in challenges and failed defenses.

Before Champion Tier:

  • Winning against opponents with lower points than you gives 18-27 points.
  • Winning against opponents with similar points as you gives 28-37 points.
  • Winning against opponents with higher points than you gives 38-50 points.

Once you reach Champion rank, the points you get from winning significantly decreases.


Make the most of your opponent refresh chances by selecting opponents with lower power levels for smoother victories. Avoid risking battles against stronger opponents for more points, as defeats not only lead to point deductions but also waste your daily battle chances.

Use your arena tickets later in the day to minimize the risk of losing tier due to challenges from other players before the daily reset.

If you’re close to advancing to the next tier, it is worth it to spend diamonds on arena tickets!

Arena Defense Formation

Click on “Formation” to access your defense formation, this is the layout that will be used for defending against challenges from other players.

For beginners, opt for your strongest PVE heroes in PVP battles, as they may outperform meta heroes at this point. Refer to the Meta Defense Heroes page for guidance.

Prioritize survivability, since if the timer runs out during your defense battle, it counts as your victory.

Choose the map layout carefully, as it will be the configuration used for defending against player challenges. Note that maps are not randomized, the map you select and save will be the map used for all your defenses .

Review your battle history to watch replays of your losses against other players. Use this info to improve your formation and adjust your hero selections. (Sword icon represent your offensive battles, shield icon represent your defensive battles).

What to Buy With Arena Coins

Purchase Priority

  1. Cecia until you get her to Supreme+.
  2. If you don’t have Brutus or Rowan by now, you should also opt to get a single copy of each.
  3. Then prioritize copies of other meta heroes you already have, such as Hewynn or Granny Dahnie.

Champion Store

This store is unlocked once you reach Top 200 and Champion Rank in Arena.

Stellar Crystals are viable for spenders due to Reinier being one of the best heroes in the game right now, accessible only through the Guild Store or Stargaze Station.

Why Arena Tier Matters

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there. It's a true blessing when your passion, hobby, and job combine into something one. My favorite console is the Nintendo Switch. I think you can all guess why. Because I just bought a Steam Deck. I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…
