As mentioned before, the AFK Journey Corrupt Creature is a type of enemy in the game that you can encounter. They randomly show up all over the world map just like other creatures, but they are rare to come across. They mostly spawn in the Dark Forest and Vaduso Mountains, but that can always vary. Defeating these creatures in a battle or challenge will of course earn you rewards. First time rewards are very amazing, giving you a good amount of Training Manuals, Soulstones and Gold. On the other hand, assistance rewards are not as amazing, but they are good enough for hunting the creatures down and fighting them for sure.

There are no set spawn areas for them and it depends on your luck how many Corrupt Creatures you will get in your world map or server. However, how do you find these creatures?

Now, what heroes should you be choosing to defeat the creatures effortlessly? This all depends on what your teammates will be dishing out from their collection. For this very reason, when the players join your lobby, utilize the team chat on the left of your screen to talk to them and figure out what heroes you all will use. As we all know, faction bonuses are the best to complete a battle before the 88 second timer runs out. Thus, talk with your teammates and try to use at least 5 heroes from the same faction. 

Other than that, make sure to have at least 1 healer or Support in your formation because the enemy team will be quite strong. Also, opt for using Marksman heroes as your main damage dealers and then use Rogue or Mage heroes as secondary damage dealers. Of course, do not forget to show the Tanks some love and have 2 of them for the defense that your team needs. After that, you can use any other hero you want with your team that creates the best synergy.
