AFK Journey Stats Guide: Hero Stats, Skills and More

Explaining AFK Journey Stats, what they do and how they affect hero skills and faction bonus.


The heroes you get through AFK Journey's gacha possess certain stats that determine their power on the battlefield. These “Hero Stats” are important, and knowing how they work is the first step to creating your strongest line-ups.

That said, these stats don't always mean what you think. And it's easy to get confused if you aren't familiar with most modern RPGs. So to give you a leg up, we compiled a list of every stat to explain what each of them do. Here's everything you need to know about AFK Journey stats!

AFK Journey Stats Explained

Like in every RPG, character stats determine your overall effectiveness in a given role. In AFK Journey, stats are divided between Rivalry, Basic, Offensive and Defensive stats. Here's what they all mean:
