Should you buy Rowan in AFK Journey?

He's basically an energy battery with a pet duck.

If you frequently play mobile games, you’re probably unfazed by introductory offers. That said, Rowan in AFK Journey is an enticing deal, especially if you’re coming from AFK Arena. If you’re undecided, let me try to answer the question: Should you buy Rowan in AFK Journey?

What is the special offer to get Rowan in AFK Journey?

As a new player, you can get Rowan with your first purchase of any item in the shop. The cheapest pack in the store is roughly a dollar (20 Dragon Stones), so you can get this high-rarity hero at a reasonably low cost.

Everyone has a different opinion on how much is worth spending on a mobile game. Some are happy spending hundreds every month, and some won’t spend anything at all. There’s no ‘right’ amount to spend, although based on the previous title, it’s unlikely that deals like this will be commonplace.

Is Rowan good in AFK Journey?

Rowan is one of the best support heroes in the game, offering a ton of utility to any team.

Rowan was a phenomenal support character in AFK Arena and consistently one of the top-tier units in the game for multiple years. It looks like Rowan’s dominance is set to continue in AFK Journey, and his skills are unmatched.

Rowan’s kit provides valuable healing and increases team defenses when Rowan ranks up. Healing is a great ability, but what sets Rowan apart from his competition is his Energy utility. Most of Rowan’s skills give your team Energy so they can use their Ultimate abilities more often.

Ultimates win battles in AFK Journey, and Rowan enables those like no other unit can. Rowan is already a common pick for the top tier of numerous lists online, fulfilling the same valuable role as he did in AFK Arena.

Do I need Rowan in AFK Journey?

Ultimately, you don’t need to purchase Rowan to have a good time in AFK Journey. We don’t know what the in-game economy will be like in the future, but if it’s anything like AFK Arena, free-to-play and low-spenders can still get every character. 

There’s a modest selection of Heroes, so the odds are in your favor of eventually getting Rowan without buying him. You can also use the Epic Recruitment banner in the Tavern to target Rowan and other high-rarity units.

AFK Journey has social features, but you may want to read up on the restrictive Servers before inviting your friends to try the game.
