AFK Arena The Lost Sigils Event Guide

What is The Lost Sigils Event?

Basically, during the event, you challenge random players to gain the sigils. The sigils are given based on the factions of Heroes you used in the battles.

For example, in a battle, you use 3 maulers Maulers and 3 wilders Wilders heroes, you will get 3x Maulers and 3x Wilders sigils.

You can use sigils to exchange for the rewards.

As such, the maximum rewards as F2P is 360 sigils in 12 days. It is worth noting that losing does not consume a run and players can retry until they win.

Players can also rent a mercenary to be used in every fight to either fill faction requirements or help make battles easier

This event lasts for 14 days.

Event Rewards

Reward Priority

  1. Faction Emblems: Best value from this event and strongly recommended for anyone who has access to it even newer players. In fact, if possible you should try to obtain a Mythic hero just to unlock this reward as an option from the list
  2. Faction Scrolls: Actually decent value since 30 scrolls cost the same as a single hero and you am guaranteed an elite on top of all the other fodder you get. Good for players who yet have access to faction emblems
  3. Celestials/Hypogeans: Poor value this time round but it’s always roughly the same although only Mezoth is worth picking up given how Athalia is available from the Challenger Store
  4. Blue Cards: 27% better-expected value than Faction Scrolls but I think it is close enough that players should opt for scrolls and hopefully obtain key heroes like Rowan
  5. Hero Choice: Being 1/4 the value of blue cards or 1/3 the value of faction scrolls, these are pretty terrible as always and only remotely worth it when literally 1 copy away from ascended
  6. Silver Emblems: Easily obtainable with gold so not worth it
  7. Gold Emblems: Easily obtainable with gold and rates are bad relative to other events
  8. Reset Scrolls: For every 10 reset scrolls, you give up 40 faction emblems which are a terrible value, not to mention reset scrolls don’t even guarantee you the faction you need.
  9. Gold: Definitely not worth it plus any excess sigils automatically get converted to this when the event ends so no reason to go out of your way and pick them up.

Basic Lost Sigils Rules

  • You can acquire factional sigils while The Lost Sigils event is underway.
  • Each victory you achieve will reward you with sigils that correspond to the factions of the heroes that were used in the battle.
  • In order to improve your gaming experience, several adjustments may be made to your matched opponent’ s formation strength to ensure balance. If you think that the opponent is too strong for you, you can always refresh using 5 gem Diamonds.
  • You may only receive sigils from a baffle if you are victorious. You can undertake up to 6 battles per day that will reward you with event sigils.
  • You may lend 3 mercenary heroes from your friends or guildmates without any limits on how many times they can be used.
  • Players must possess at least one Mythic hero in order to be able to exchange sigils for Mythic gear enhancement resources.
  • Remaining sigils will be deleted once the event has ended. Please exchange your sigils.
  • The event lasts for 10 days but you can only battle in the first 8 days. The last 2 days are for exchanging items.
  • Max Rewards = 240 Sigils in 8 days (without spending)

Best Teams & Strategies for The Lost Sigils Event

Lost Sigils event isn’t just about getting the required number of Sigils, but the player also has to obtain the appropriate faction sigils depending on the reward they are going for. This is done by running specific heroes on your team even if it means fielding sub-optimal lineups.

Below are some example faction setups for the more promising rewards. Each row represents a single day so a number 5 under the LB column means that the player needs to run 5 Lightbearers in his lineup for all 6 matches for that day. You might notice some days having “?” instead which indicates special circumstances where the player has to refer to the bottom table for the in-dividual fight lineups. Of course, you don’t have to follow all the setups specifically and there are other ways to obtain the right amount of emblems but my recommendations simply try to get it done in as little different variations as possible (more convenient)

Red Emblems – Best Reward!

  • Target Reward: 200 Faction Emblems
  • Sigils Required: 360 (180/180)

There are actually 6 possible ways to do this but the ones below are just 4 examples for reference. The idea is to pick one which you have the suitable hero pool for.

For example, if you can’t field 3 or more Maulers/Grave-borns then try to go for the Lightbearer-provider setup. Likewise, if you can’t do 5 Wilders on a single team, then opt for 4-1 distribution and swap

  • 3-2 LB W
  • 5-0 LB W
  • 3-2 M GB
  • 5-0 M GB

Scrolls & Cards

  • Target Reward: 40 Faction Scrolls / 40 Blue Lightbearer Cards
  • Sigils Required: 360 (150/50/110/50)

Given the strict sigil requirements and the need to obtain sigils from every faction, the player needs to run a very specific setup for one of the days to balance out sigils (do note that if you mess this up, you could mess up your total rewards pool).

The first 11 days follow the original (top) table and for the last day, the player needs to follow the bottom table and switch his formations for every fight.

Hero / Scrolls

  • Target Reward: 2 Heroes (Rosaline) / 10 Faction Scrolls
  • Sigils Required: 350 (175 / 120 / 50 )

On top of the special day, you will need to adjust the factions according to the hero you are going for since this setup only works for Rosaline (recommended).

Mezoth

  • Target reward: Mezoth  / 10 Faction Scrolls / 40 Faction Emblems
  • Sigils Required: 347 (156 / 156 / 35 )

This setup gives you the least amount of sigils wasted towards gold but obviously, you can opt for 60 faction emblems and drop The faction scrolls entirely. In that case, the setup still works since faction emblems cost less sigils so you don’t have to make any adjustments

It’a worth mentioning that you can’t get Talene without spending actual money on the event to get sigils.

WRONGKEKW

if im not mistaken, 30*8 is 240, talene costs 35 + 95 +95, you will have 15 sigils left

Tempie718

Gotta redu your math man lol

ponderwander

So you need a 93% win rate to get Talene? So losing 4 battles would mean you can’t get her and would be stuck with a whole bunch of random celestial sigils. There is no exit strategy….

Grain of saltz

IIRC if you lose you can just try again, you can play until 6 wins per day. So you will generally get the sigils unless you don’t have the desired lineup

Nick

The event just returned 2 days ago. I don’t see a 0.99 purchase option, the lowest is 29.99 going up to 99.99 for sigil. I am not spending $100 usd daily on it. This event has athalia and mezoth but not talene.
