Builds are the playing styles of Clicker Heroes. There are three types of Builds:

  • Active - Generally best for players who are very focused in their game, and play very often, without getting distracted.
  • Idle - Generally best for players who spend a lot of time on other windows and tabs, and aren't on the game that much.
  • Hybrid - Generally best for players who want to go active at the end of the run to push further than idle, but don't want so much micro-managing near the beginning.

Because Hybrid is the most efficient, this page will only discuss Hybrid, and will also talk a little bit about idle, and not Active, since players should go idle if they don't yet have an Autoclicker default Auto Clicker. Otherwise, the player should just go hybrid.

Idle

Idle builds require players not to click or use skills, lest idleness be canceled, and so will the effect of Libertas Libertas, Nogardnit Nogardnit, and Siyalatas Siyalatas, until the player doesn't click for 60 seconds again.

Being Idle.

Ancients

The player should get all of the Ancients except for Berserker Berserker, Bhaal Bhaal, Chawedo Chawedo Energon Energon, Fragsworth Fragsworth, Hecatoncheir Hecatoncheir, Juggernaut Juggernaut, Kleptos Kleptos, Sniperino Sniperino and Vaagur Vaagur* as these only work if the player is not idle. This makes for a total of 16 Ancients in the idle build. Although this means that an idle build requires less Ancient summoning and Ancient leveling than an active build, this means that the HeroSoul Hero Souls are spread out across less Ancients that an active build (more additive, less muliplicative).

*The player can summon Vaagur Vaagur for some Energized Dark Rituals during runs.

Hero Upgrades

Besides the main DPS heroes (7samurai The Masked Samurai, Atlas2 Atlas and beyond), the player should level the following heroes only to these certain levels (not past) in order to get the upgrades to increase DPS, Gold Gold gained, and click damage:

*Getting a 1.1× DPS increase from Energized Dark Ritual is nice, but you need to make sure that your DPS is high enough so that when you get this combo, you are still insta-killing, otherwise, it's not worth it.

Hybrid

Hybrid builds are sort of like a combination of a Click build and an Idle build, requiring players to stay idle up until they stop insta-killing, when they switch over to playing active until the end of the run.

Insta-killing.

Because the three main active Ancients (Fragsworth Fragsworth, Bhaal Bhaal, and Juggernaut Juggernaut) do not work well with the idle ancients, this means that not all the Ancients can easily function together. This is the only downside of a hybrid build, as it requires the player to level up all the Ancients, meaning they will be at lower levels, and less strong. (For example, the amount of HeroSoul Hero Souls it takes to level Fragsworth Fragsworth to 100 with an hybrid build, when all Ancients are leveled optimally, is more than the amount of HeroSoul Hero Souls that it takes to level Fragsworth Fragsworth to 100 with an active build, when all Ancients are leveled optimally. Remember that by the time the player clicks in a hybrid build, the idle ancients aren't functioning anymore, so everything relies on the active Ancients and the neutral Ancients(making it feel the same as an active build).)

Hybrid build happens to be the most efficient of the three builds after the 1.0 update, as Idle doesn't get as far into the zones(deep runs are better, now with Transcendent Power), and Active stops insta-killing sooner than Hybrid, slowing the game down.

Ancients

The player should get all of the Ancients.

The ratio between Fragsworth Fragsworth and Siyalatas Siyalatas should be at 0.5 when the first Auto Clicker is bought, and has Siyalatas over 200,000. Once the player can get infinite Lucky Strikes, the player should move it up to 1, and then to 2 when the player can get infinite energized Lucky Strikes.

Leveling Ancients is following the 1.0 Rules of Thumb, with some small changes:

Hero Upgrades

Besides the main DPS heroes (7samurai The Masked Samurai, Atlas2 Atlas, and beyond), the player should level the following heroes only to these certain levels (not past) in order to get the upgrades to increase DPS, gold gained, and click damage:
