A guide by whitesushii
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 and 3 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 at max 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.
Best Event Rewards To Get
- Red 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.
- Gold Emblems: Players are typically short on this so it’s not terrible put this resource can be obtained with Gold (abundant resource) and is the actually terrible value from this particular event.
- Blue Cards: 20 fodder cards when pegged to Tavern summon value is approxiamtely 5492 diamonds. For the same amount of Sigils, the player is able to obtain 6666 diamonds worth of Faction Emblems. Furthermore, even if we factor in Labyrinth Store, we are looking at 48,000 Lab Tokens, which is only able to get yo u32 Faction Emblems (whereas in teh event the same amount gives you 44)
- 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
- Celestials/Hypogeans: Poor value this time round but it’s always roughly the same although only Mehira/Mezoth is worth picking up.
- 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.
- Silver Emblems: Easily obtainable with gold so not worth it.
- PoE Coins: 3000 PoE Coins is worth either 1200 or 2123 diamonds. For the same amount of Sigils, the player is giving up 5000 diamonds worth of Fation Emblems. That said this might be decent for whales stacked on SI already.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
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).
Players can battle up to 6 times per day Each win rewards 5 sigils depending on factions used This gives you a total of 360 sigils over the 12 event days Daily deals aren’t worth it since max Red Emblems are claimable F2P Losing does not consume a run You can rent a mercenary to make all battles easier Below are some recommended formations for rewards You have to run each formation 6 times per day
