Garrisoned Mercenaries are a system that can be used to borrow dimensional heroes from your friends or Exemplar guild mates in AFK Arena for 30 days per a cost of 100 Dimensional Stones. After borrowing 6 times, you won't spend any more resources to borrow the hero.

Players receive 50 Companion Points each time they successfully loan out a hero as a Garrisoned Mercenaries. A maximum of 200 Companion Points per month can be obtained using this method.


Esperia is a land full of surprises but also crises. If you want to travel or take adventure here, there are two things necessary, courage and companionship.

Courage allows you to embark on an adventure without hesitation and support you through the most difficult times. When the courage cannot solve the problem, it is a wise choice to hire a reliable adventure partner.
