Alaro - the Desert’s Eye is the latest hero to join AFK Arena. Update v1.85 also brings some changes to certain heroes.

Alaro can go incognito and gather some information about his enemies so that his teammates can benefit from the intel. His other skills such as Dummy Double are pretty good. At the start of the battle, Alaro creates a dummy of himself that has the same attributes and occupies his original position. After doing so, he goes incognito and he is immune to damage and control effects during this time. When the dummy is destroyed, it deals 420% of Alaro’s attack rating as AoE damage to nearby enemies, stunning them for three seconds as well. You can learn more about the new hero here.

Update v1.85 also introduces a new feature called Gear Resonance, which can be unlocked by collecting a certain number of specified gear. Basically, Gear Resonance allows you to raise all of your low Combat Rating gear to the same tier, saving you a ton of time.
