The Elder Tree is a feature available in the Library in AFK Arena. It can be unlocked after completing 8-40 in the Campaign. Players can level up the Elder Tree to increase all of their heroes' attributes and provide them with bonuses.

After reaching level 15 of Elder Tree and completing stage 12-40, players will be able to unlock the Dura's Virtues feature. Each virtue branch corresponds to a particular type of hero class.

"Brimming with life, the Elder Tree awaits."

Background

It is spoken of in legends, during the first Hypogean invasion, Dura, the Goddess of Life, sacrificed herself to seal away the evil invaders which threatened Esperia's existence. It's said that as she feel from the sky in her weakened state she came to rest within a far-away, secluded forest, and in this place now exists a giant magical tree known as "The Elder Tree".

"We do not know what her intentions were, but perhaps this was her final gift to the mortals. From it, we can catch a glimpse of her eternal love and boundless wisdom. We must cherish Dura's final gift to the world" - Gretel Hawk

Guide

A Flawless Droplet

  • Flawless Droplets may be obtained when an Elite hero is acquired for the first time or when Elite heroes are ascended (duplicates of Elite heroes will not reward Flawless Droplets).
  • Flawless Droplets can be used at the Elder Tree to increase its level.
    • The level will eventually cap based on how many heroes are in the game.
  • The number of Flawless Droplets you obtain for ascending Ascended tier heroes depends on ascension level: 1 for unlocking an Ascended tier hero, another 1 for ascending to Elite+, 4 for Legendary, 2 for Legendary+, 8 for Mythic, another 8 for Mythic+ and 4 for Ascended. Excluding star ascension bonuses, you will get a total of 28 droplets. Additionally, each star gives 2 droplets.
  • Attributes gifted by the Elder Tree will impact all heroes' attributes.
  • Dura's virtues will be unlocked after completing Chapter 12 and reaching level 15 with the Elder Tree. Each virtue represents a hero class. The classes represented by Dura's Virtues are as follows: Tank, Warrior, Ranger, Mage, and Support.

Twisted Essence

  • Each individual Virtue branch of the Elder Tree can be leveled up with the use of Twisted Essence. Leveling up a virtue will increase the attributes it gives to heroes. The Twisted Essence can be obtained from AFK rewards chest and Twisted Realm guild hunts.
  • Virtue branches can be reset at any time by spending 300 Diamonds or using a reset scroll.
