What are Signature Items?

Once your heroes have reached the Mythic tier, you will be able to unlock their “Signature Items”. All Legendary Tier Heroes do not have signature items.

These special items will increase their stats as well as grant them some special abilities. Additionally, Signature Items also have their own Attributes [Dynamic]

Attributes [Dynamic] are calculated based on the hero’s base stats. The base stats are the original stats of the Hero while not having effects from any item/artifact/union.

Upgrading signature items increase their attributes as well as the buffs they offer.

Signature Item Upgrade Priority

Guide by br33ze12

This should be useful for all players, from beginners to ones approaching the endgame.

If you are wondering which hero you should get SI +30 for next, this is the ultimate guide for you, free players or low spenders!

Our Signature Item tier list below only considers the strengths of the SI in generals, not based on your teams or your hero pool. Thus, premium faction heroes can easily get to the top without a doubt.

Following this priority list should make things much easier! But do note that this is for the SI30 only.

  1. Rowan (Best SI in the entire AFK Arena)
  2. Eironn or daimon Daimon: Depending on the teams you are using, they are your main carries. Get them to SI30 first if you cannot get Rowan to Mythic.
  3. Saurus: Unless you can lend a fully-geared Saurus every week, this is always a must-have for all players! Excellent for all Twisted Realms!
  4. Ascended Celestials/Hypogeans
  5. Albedo Albedo → Anz Ainz
  6. Talene or Lucretia Lucretia.
  7. Thoran or izold Izold (If you want to use them in your team formations).
  8. Eironn or daimon Daimon. Get the leftover one to SI30 for multi-stage campaigns.
  9. arthur Arthur (Slowly upgrade him by purchasing the Sigils in the Lab Store.)
  10. Ferael

The list above is probably suitable for 95% AFK Arena players. If you are playing for a year now, you should be at no more than step 7.

If you get to the end of the list above, you should be around chapter 34. All of the other SI30s are now situational with no real priority. It’s all depending on the teams you are using. I am not mentioning Celestials/Hypogeans here because if you can get them ascended, you can easily have their SI to 30 as well.

  • Gwyneth: If you use her in some comps. Getting her to 25 is fine but 30 makes Rosaline always follow her.
  • afk arena silas Silas is great for the team-wide amplify damage.
  • Skriath: Deals a lot of damage, Better than getting Safiya to SI30.
  • pippa Pippa: Great for the new dominating Khazard Team.
  • Grezhul: For Abyssal Expedition and Twisted Realms. But you want to have his Furniture at 9/9 also.
  • tidus Tidus: Strengthens the Five Pull team by a lot!
  • Skreg: Must have if you want to get to higher Mauler floors and to use the Skreg Invade team for Multi-stage battles.
  • Tasi: Who doesn’t love Tasi?
  • Safiya: Very powerful and viable in a lot of teams.

Please comment down below if you want to ask about any hero. This Signature Item Priority List should be working for almost all players in the game right now!

Signature Item Tier List

by whitesushii

Note:

  • This signature item tier list is mainly for PvE progression.
  • Being a signature item priority list, this list not only considers the strength of a Signature Item (SI), but also the usability of the hero possessing it. In this sense, a SI, no matter how strong, is low priority if people rarely use the hero for general PvE progression outside the King’s Tower (i.e. Seirus). This is also the same reason why most Maulers exist on lower tiers. On the flip side, a weak SI like Nemora/Tasi is worth investing in since the heroes are played frequently and even the stat boost is alright.
