How to get hero coins
There is currently only one way to acquire hero coins in AFK Arena, through retiring heroes. Retiring a hero is the equivalent of deleting or getting rid of that specific hero. This can be done inside the Rickety Cart in Ranhorn. Check out our How To Retire Heroes Guide to learn more about how to retire heroes.
The main reason for retiring heroes is because common heroes will take up all your available slots. However, this process also produces Hero Coins and hero essence which is a nice bonus.
