The Peaks of Time are adventure puzzles in AFK Arena. The main purpose is to find all of the treasure chests on the map. Each stage offers one-time-only rewards, so they need to be 100% completed at least once. This feature can be unlocked upon completing Stage 6-4 in the main campaign.

Peaks of Time stages are split into two categories: Historic Ventures and Wandering Balloon. Historic ventures stages remain at the same difficulty and are not affected by the strength of the player, while wandering balloon stages have a difficulty corresponding the the combat rating of the player.


According to Legend, the Peaks of Time were created by Honas, God of Creation, in order to allow him watch over all of his creations in the past, present and future. It was said that when Dura fell to the earth, the last remnants of her being fell onto the high peaks of the mountain and were scattered, breaking up into seven divine artifacts that lay hidden somewhere within its interior. Only when all seven of the artifacts are brought together, will the world have a chance to return to a state of peace.


  • Players can acquire many treasures while exploring the Peaks of Time.
  • The Peaks of Time adventures are divided into two modes of play: The Wandering Balloon mode and Historic Ventures Mode.
  • Players can start and finish adventures as they please. Finishing and restarting an adventure will reset it.
  • Enemies within the Historic Ventures mode do not grow stronger and are unaffected by the player's own strength.
  • Each time a player opens or restarts an adventure within the Wandering Balloon mode of play, the difficulty of the enemies within is reevaluated and adjusted according to the player's own combat rating.
  • Once opened, the Wandering Balloon mode remains open for up to 14 days, after which it automatically closes. The difficulty of enemies is readjusted in accordance with the player's Combat Rating each time a player opens the Wandering Balloon mode.
  • Rewards can only be claimed one time per adventure.
  • 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.
  • There are some powerful artifacts that can be found in some of the chests. These artifacts can be equipped on your hero to power them up and provide them with unique bonuses.
  • You can start and finish any level as many times as you want, so don’t worry if you fail it.
  • There are two types of chests: Crystal & Gold
    • Crystal Treasure Chests can contain artifacts, and finding a certain amount of them on the map is required to progress onto the next adventure.
  • Unlocking each individual peak requires 60% completion of the previous stage, and completion of a specific stage in the main campaign.
