Peaks of Time guide


Peaks of Time is a very fascinating riddle mode in AFK Arena that focuses on solving the puzzles. The purpose of this building is to find all treasure chests and rewards on the map. Rewards are being offered only one time, so you just need to finish them in 100% once. You can begin and finish them unlimited number of times, so don’t stress if you fail through it. Only one mercenary may be used per formation within the Peaks of Time, however, the number of times that a mercenary can be used is unlimited.

This building is unlocked after Chapter 6: Stage 4 is completed.

The Peaks of Time adventures are divided into two modes of play: Wandering Balloon and Historic Ventures mode. Enemies within the Historic Ventures mode do not grow stronger and are unaffected by the player’s own strength.

Chapter 1: Ranhorn’s Strife

This is a genuinely straightforward experience to do. You shouldn’t have any issues finishing it. Reward from this adventure is an extremely strong artifact called Dura’s Grace and besides normal combat stats (HP and dodge) it also offers and special effect – a divine shield that blocks up to 120% damage that activates after casting hero’s ultimate.

Chapter 3: Secrets of the Forest

Secrets of the Forest

For the first time in this type of adventure things are becoming more interesting, because only a small amount of players are understanding what’s going on on the Secrets of the Forest after few times of resetting this instance. This stage contains vines that are growing from defeating enemy camps and in the end block the entirety of the ways you can go.

Chapter Reward: Dura’s Eye Artifact

There are countless discoveries to be made within the forest. Those that dare venture into it often find it hard to find their way back home again. It’s also said that only those who’ve passed its trials are worthy of revealing its secrets.

Chapter 5: The Ancient Ruins


The Ancient Ruins


The Ancient Ruins chapter is clearly one of the most dubious chapters in Historic Ventures towards the start of adventures in  AFK Arena.

In this chapter you will find many levers that needs to be triggered to move walls with the same colors that are impeding your ways. There is a lot of work to do here to finish this chapter and claim final reward.

Chapter 8: Rancid Forest


Rancid Forest

This chapter is about “building” a bridge by standing on green/blue symbols on the map in order of getting to the final boss and getting Crystal Chest reward. There are two ways of completing this map, but we prefer the shorter way as it is easier to get final prize.

Chapter Reward: Diamonds, Gold and much more.

Rancid Forest Lore

Rancid Forest reeks with a thick stench. It is the place where the followers of the demon occult gather. Their ruler Kane can be found deep within the forest. To get a glimpse of Kane, they must offer up sacrifices to their cruel ruler on altars scattered throughout  the forest which opens the passage to his throne. His devout followers lie within the dark shadows of the forest hidden beneath thick vegetation. They await those who dare to come looking for Kane and threaten his rule.

Chapter 9: Viper’s Marsh


Vipers Marsh

This is a pretty simple and direct chapter, there are no riddles, puzzling or some kind of gimmicks that are blocking you from finishing Viper’s Marsh. All you need to do is to obtain Relics to strengthen your heroes and defeat powerful Chief Enemies.

Chapter Reward: Dura’s Blade Artifact.

AFK Arena Duras Blade Artifact

Viper’s Marsh Lore

Viper’s Marsh is situated tp the western wastelands of Esperia. Though it does not fall within the territory of any faction, they all wish to clam it as their own. It is rich in magical crystal and boasts and ideal strategic position, making it highly contested. In order to gain control of Viper’s Marsh, each faction has a garrison of its own within the marshlands. The factions signed treaties on the resources of the islands, though from time to time conflicts break out between them. These treaties are by no means binding – they are merely a pile of useless papers. Only force can put an end to the ongoing deadlock.

Chapter 10: The Dismal Descent


The Dismal Descent

This chapter is really long and exhausting, it has multiple portals and multiple paths to move around the map. The correct way to complete The Dismal Descent is to stand on emblems in the correct order to arrive in specific parts of this adventure.

Chapter Reward: Diamonds, Gold, Artifact Fragments and much more!

The Dismal Descent Lore

The unusual land is most difficult to traverse. The mountains here seem to have been moved by great magic, moved into peculiar locations, as if they were trying to hide something. The only way to traverse this land is through its magical portals. But one must be careful, those that enter the portals rashly may soon find themselves lost. There is surely some sort of method to their madness, perhaps a hidden code. Only the smart and cunning may uncover this realm’s hidden secrets.

Duras Chalice of Vitality

The Savage Wastes Lore

Buried deep below the sands of this inhospitable wasteland lies the remnants of a civilization that once was great – a civilization that existed in an era where gods and mortals stood shoulder to shoulder. The hubris of mortal men brought about disaster that led to their own downfall. Mortal mages initiated a powerful arcane ritual that grew too strong for them to control, causing the city to be engulfed by desert sand. Now, all that remains of this once great civilization are its marvelous riches that lie somewhere beneath the desert’s dusty surface.

Chapter 14: Abysmal Delves


The Abysmal Delves

Chapter Reward: Mythic Item, Hero’s Essence and Dura’s Chalice of Vitality fragments.

The Abysmal Delves Lore

A once tranquil paradise, this land is changed. Where before pristine streams cut glittering paths through lush, soft grass and colorful birds flitted lazily between the boughs, fire and ice now reign. In the blink of an eye, a clash between two powerful elementals reached its cataclysmic zenith. Both entities were destroyed along with the landscape, but an enterprising adventurer may still have reason to travel here. If the stories of the two elemental war hammers hidden away in this place are true, it would be worth risking the avalanches and rivers of magma to find them.

Chapter 15: The Contorted Realm


The Contorted Realm

The Contorted Realm is pretty confusing chapter with many portals, jump gates and disappearing bridges. In order to finishing this stage it is recommended to have heroes with levels 240+ because Boss camps in front of Crystal Chests are quite powerful and overleveled.

Chapter Reward: Mythic Item, many different Artifact fragments and much more.

The Contorted Realm Lore

A place where the physical and intangible intertwine, this strange realm seems unbound from the laws of nature. Odd things drift among wavering shadow, seeking fresh victims, and visitors are confronted with a vast, dreamlike void. Unsurprisingly, seekers of adventure, fortune, and knowledge are drawn here with hopes of uncovering great bounties. Most find only early, terrifying deaths. The bizarre forces that course through this place are so strong that even the structural integrity of the realm itself is tenuous. One must always watch the twisting paths here. One wrong footstep can send an adventurer to their death. Many explorers claim that they’d have never made it out had it not been for a fortuitous finding of one of the ancient jump gates.

Chapter 16: The Forgotten Mine


The Forgotten Mine

The Forgotten Mine is pretty straightforward map with few magical turrets that you have to move and deliver fire to them. You will find here 3 Crystal Chests behind three boss camps. This episode, even though it occurs later, is easier than the previous one – The Contorted Realm.

Chapter Reward: Stone of Cleverness, Stone of Quickness, Hero’s Essence and much more. 

The Forgotten Mine Lore

In order to exploit the rich mineral deposits buried in this continent, the pioneering dwarves dug deep, winding underground mines, in which they constructed railroad tracks in all directions. As the minerals began to dwindle, the area became increasingly desolate, with many of the dwarves choosing to find work elsewhere. Magical turrets were also built by pioneering dwarves to fend off the hostile natives that tried to disrupt their mining efforts. The turrets use fire for ammunition and are one of the many technological masterpieces the dwarves have created However, after the mine was abandoned  and forgotten about, most of the turrets are now inactive and need to be reactivated.
