Now that you know exactly how to forge your heroes’ AFK Journey equipment and make them stronger, you need to know which class or role’s gear to upgrade first. For players who are just beginning their journey, it is advisable to concentrate on upgrading or forging the equipment of classes or roles in which your strongest heroes are. Instead of spending your resources on classes you don’t generally use, opt for upgrading the gear of classes you use more in battles i.e. your stronger heroes’ class. 

As for which gear item you should be forging to a higher level first, that depends on which class you’re planning to spend resources on. In general, you should focus on upgrading your Marksman class first because the heroes in this class are the damage dealers, who are best for both story progression and battles in general. Then, you should focus on the Tank and Support classes of heroes because having proper defense and healing is necessary for the frontrunners to thrive. After that go for the secondary damage dealers who stay in the middle or back of your formations more i.e. the Warrior, Rogue and Mage classes of heroes, giving them priority based on who you use more often.

How to Get Exclusive Equipment

Exclusive AFK Journey equipment is the type of equipment that is specific for each individual hero in the game. Currently, each hero has only one piece of exclusive equipment. To get them, you need to ascend your heroes to the highest level i.e. to Mythic. Then, you will be able to use and upgrade the exclusive equipment. It is not only hard to ascend your heroes to Mythic, but you also need a special stone to upgrade or forge the exclusive equipment. 

These are known as “Ruin Stones” and they are extremely hard to get. You can only get them through battles in the Dream Realm, from the Emporium which is the in-game exchange store or from Guild Chests for which you need to join a guild in the AFK Arena. However, you can also purchase the stone from the in-game shop with Dragon Crystals, which have to be bought with real money, of course.
