Common hero scrolls are obtained through daily and weekly quests, completing a new chapter in the campaign, and events.
You can exchange scrolls for random heroes in The Nobel Tavern, which is located in Ranhorn.
To access Ranhorn, simply press ‘Ranhorn’ in the bottom menu.
You can exchange 1 scroll at a time for 1 hero, or 10 scrolls at a time for 10 heroes.
You can also obtain new heroes in AFK Arena by collecting and combining hero soulstone.
There are two types of soulstone in the game, rare hero soulstone and elite hero soulstone.
When you have 60 of either elite or rare hero soulstone, you can combine them and receive a random rare or elite hero depending on which soulstone you use.
There are different ways to get soulstone, including quests, arcane labyrinth, king’s tower, and the store.
Once you have 60 or more of the same soulstone, open up your bag, which is located in the top-right menu on the main screen.
Go to the Soulstones tab and select the soulstone you wish to combine.
Press ‘Combine’ and you will receive a random hero that is of the same rarity as the soulstone.
A great and easy way to get new heroes is by utilizing the Friends system in AFK Arena.
Every single day, you can send companion points to your friends, and they can send companion points to you.
You can send a total of 30 a day but only receive a total of 20 a day.
To send and receive companion points, go to the Friends tab and press ‘Send & Receive’.
Getting new friends in AFK Arena is quite easy, so fill up your friend list as soon as possible.
You can, for example, add people from your guild or add people from the global chat.
Companion points can be exchanged at The Noble Tavern at a rate of 10 companion points per hero.
This method will give you around 2 heroes a day without any work just by having your friend list full.
Once you’ve used up all your common hero scrolls, you can purchase heroes with diamonds.
A single hero will cost you 300 diamonds while 10 heroes come at a cost of 2700 diamonds.
In other words, you get 10 heroes for the price of 9.
There are several ways to obtain diamonds in AFK Arena besides buying them.
These include quests, arcane labyrinth, king’s tower, arena of heroes, and the campaign.
All of these will net you a significant number of diamonds over time.
To exchange your diamonds for heroes, head to The Noble Tavern in Ranhorn.
Under the same section that allows you to exchange scrolls for heroes, you can spend diamonds for heroes once you run out of scrolls.
The Store located in Ranhorn has several heroes for sale.
Inside the Barracks tap, players can purchase rare heroes directly for hero coins – 4800 hero coins will get you a rare hero.
You can also spend those hero coins on either elite or rare soulstone, which will give you a random hero instead.
Hero coins are obtained through retiring heroes. Learn more about how to retire heroes.
The labyrinth tab inside the store also sells heroes directly – 4800 labyrinth tokens will get you a rare hero, while 45000 labyrinth tokens will get you an elite hero.
Labyrinth tokens are obtained by completing stages in the Arcane Labyrinth inside the Dark Forest.
Events are a great way of obtaining new heroes in AFK Arena.
Unfortunately, there isn’t always an event going on.
Therefore, we can’t specify any exact way of obtaining new heroes through events, as they are constantly changing.
We can, however, make a qualified guess on how you can utilize an event that might be going on when you read this to get new heroes.
Usually, events in AFK Arena involve collecting some kind of event item, which can be exchanged for scrolls, soulstone, or even heroes directly.
To see if there is an event going on, look for the ‘Event’ tab in the left-side menu on the main screen.
If this tab isn’t there, it means that there currently are no events running.
