AFK Arena Signature Item Tier List

[Total: 51   Average: 4.2/5]

This is a priority list for which items to level first. It’s based on the overall combined power of the signature item and hero.

The recommended upgrade level is in brackets. Celestials & Hypogean can upgrade to +40, but the cost is extremely high and isn’t viable for the majority of players.

Erionn is better +30, i personally use Thoran +30 because my main team is Graveborn. And Rosaline is pretty good with +20.

I upgraded my Shemira’s SI to level 28 out of pure ignorance. Would you recommend I just go until +30 now for the bonus? 😭

May as well I say, 90 emblems would get someone else to +24 though

I’m currently around lvl 290 and I’m not sure whether I should go for talene or Farrell’s SI, any advice? Both are already at 20..

I was literally in the same situation and went Talene first even though Farrell is ascended and my talene is only Mythic right now. So far I haven’t regret it at all. You want to have both of them at 30 anyways so just go with one and then do the other.

Got my first Mythic, Brutus. Promptly leveled SI to +1 but thought, I should check if there’s a list of best SI to upgrade – – – Brutus leave at BASE… SMH.. at least I only used 10 shields.

Think you’re underestimating Antandra’s SI. At +20 it’s 20% of her max hp per second over 30 seconds? Barring mass burst damage that’s 100% of her hp every 5 seconds, not to mention how she’s got a pretty good chance of dodging on top of some cc and her ult actually making her invulnerable like it’s supposed to. Granted I’m only on chapter 26, but I love using her as a tank in various content.

The only weakness of Antandra is she only strong by herself. Maulers are kind of weak overall in the current environment. Unlike Lightbeareres team up properly or Wilders can deal with massive damage, healing, and control oppose. So, ye, this is a team game… 😈

Maybe… But she’s WARRIOR category; that means more waste to performance her in the Ancient Tree… Remember that this guide is por BEGGINERS and medium advanced players; so the first category to up in the Tree is Support, Mages and Tanks… andAntantra is more useful when geta ascending…

Nice guide…

Actually, you leave the magicians branch at +10. Tanks’ branch is wortg getting to +25. The rest of the points should be divided between archers and supports. That’s the current meta

I liked the previous tier list better. How do we prioritize between factions when we have silver, gold, and chests which can be used on anyone?

I like the new layout but definitely agree they need to re-include the info on +1-20 SIs to evaluate where to use purple and gold emblems, and also where to use faction choice chests for +21-30. That sortable table did that much better.

How is Lyca at Base, +10, and +30 an A, but S+ at +20? Shouldn’t +30 also be S+? At +30, it only makes her better by giving her allies even more accuracy.

I think the meaning in here is it doesn’t worth with 300 emblems you spent for her to get +30.

Hi, I think you typo’ed Hawkes +30 skill. It should be “Effects are increase to 8 seconds” instead of Haste, which makes it pretty good against strong CC teams.

Lot of corrections need to be made. They’ve changed a lot of SIs. Brutus 20/30, Fawkes 30 for starters.

Does +40 in the Celestial/Hypogean items unlock any additional abilities? Or is it pure stats?

It just add pure stats. Not really worth to invest in IMO, since it costs a lot of emblems. Better off putting them into other heroes

I think Shemira’s is being underrated simply due to how insane her damage is against Wrizz/Soren, which is a big help in progression.

At higher levels, you do not need Shemira if you have an equally strong Belinda and a supporting LB cast (Rowan, Rosaline, Estrilda, etc.) In fact, I stopped using Shemira in Soren because her ult just wipes my guys.

Anyway, I do about 300M in Wrizz and 150-200M in Soren. Level 254 team.

Of course. Just hit 1.4B yesterday with that same lineup. Only people affected by the nerf are those who were skewers really bad because of it.

I’ll have to try that once I have a stronger roster. Right now I’m only at lvl 220 and Shemira does a good 10x the damage of my Belinda.

Wrong Alminahz, I keep using shemira in Soren battle and with Lucius, Rosalin, Baden and Belinda I do always not under 320M damages! If Baden generates his ghosts, then Soren turn to fight them…not your team and that’s mean Soren are controlling only those ghosts not your team and shemira doesn’t kill your team! Depends also if Lucius do well his job with the shield! My team lvl 283, wrizz:450-480M damages & Soren 260-340M! I put 260M because sometimes Soren kill very fast Lucius, after 40-45 seconds…but still without him get over 200M damages! Try to use Lucius & Baden… Read more »

Try using Belinda + 4 supports team. You can easily reach 1b dmg Wrizz and 400m+ dmg Soren at this level.

I’m gonna disagree on Estrilda’s SI to be ranked on B. Sure, her SI relies on killing the enemy while she is still alive, but when that happens, it could really give a big difference. Other than her base and +30, her +10 and +20 SI should be at A tier imo.

Great tier btw. Really helped to decide which SI to focus next

Thank you for making this!

Two things that need to be corrected though. At the top where the Graveborn are ranked, Izold is left off but he is under the colored section that ranks each of level of his signature item. The second thing is that Antandra was left off of all together. Aside from those two things, it looks awesome!

They seriously need to buff Thane’s SI. Wtf is his SI even? Did they even consider how it’s gonna work in an actual battle? Unless you build a team that’s full of CC, he’s basically useless considering his play-style as an assassin. He dives head on to the enemies. Even if he survives the pre-ult phase, gaining his SI’s effect is hard since its RNG based, the more crits he does the better its chances of working. I know there are heroes whose SI are RNG dependent like Khasos but at least Khasos does get a fair advantage when it… Read more »

I think that the reason why Shemira’s SI is rated relatively low is because you need to kill off the opponent’s 2 team members before it becomes more effective. Of course, it may still be effective in Wrizz if you still use her.

They did that as part of a balancing act to try to get weaker heroes more in line with the strength of stronger heroes like these two. Why they decided to give the most powerful hero in the game, Athelia, the most powerful signature item to make her even more godlike is beyond me.
