Signature Items Priority List (1.60) & Guide For Emblems

Once your heroes reach Mythic Tier in the ascension you will be able to unlock and level up their Signature Item. Their Signature item is an individual boost item only available for that hero and can, for some heroes, really boost their effectiveness.

The problem is you will need a good amount of emblems to level them up and they are quite rare in AFK Arena – that’s the reason why I wanted to write this guide here to give you some sort of recommendation which heroes you should invest your emblems in first.

The main reason of this guide is to help you not waste any emblems! Once you have spent your emblems on a Signature Item, there’s NO way to get them back and it can take weeks to recover from any mistakes! Choose your Signature Items wisely!

All Signature Items Ranked List

For the reason I simply can’t do a “do this hero’s Signature Item first than this…” I have grouped them in tier like heroes that have the best Signature Items followed by those who have very strong and so on.

Attention! This is more a recommendation. Depending if you plan to ascend a certain hero or not. Even F2P should get Talene / Twins from Stargazing at some point (more on that here). The other factions with the Faction Towers in mind.

Important Info!

So you will find in the first row how important that hero is when looking at it from the perspective of end-game (and with no Signature Items refund you need to look from the end-game perspective) and in the second row how strong a Signature Item will improve a hero.

Example: Just because you use a hero a lot right now (e.g. Shemira prior to Chapter 30), doesn’t mean you should put emblems into her Signature Item. She will become obsolete later in the game and you have “wasted” emblems that you could have intested better.

So, the higher a hero in the list the higher the priority you should give his Signature Item.

I also have recommendations what Signature Item level will be most useful for a hero, not every hero needs to get SI+30.

To help you plan, here’s what you need for the Signature items:

Activation: 20x Primordial Emblems

Level 10: 200x Primordial Emblems

Level 10->20: 240x Amplifying Emblems

Level 20->30: 300x Faction Emblems

Please mind that heroes within a priority are sorted alphabetically, not prioritized themselves!

Items

Ainz +30 Simply crazy how powerful he will get when his chanting phase will get omitted, making his ultimate so much more deadly and him one of the scariest heroes in AFK Arena.
Albedo +30 If you use Albedo along with Ainz, her Signature Item will literally make both of them so hard to kill that they will wipe out enemy teams just like that.
Alna +30 her Signature Item just makes her a lot harder to kill so she will be super sustainable during a battle and deals her damage and debuff over and over again. One of the best Signature Items you will find in AFK Arena.
Arthur +30 Just a crazy buff for all enemies standing behind Arthur. No doubt about taking it!
Daimon +30 Daimon is already strong and his Signature Item just makes what makes him strong even stronger. A must-take Signature Item.
Eironn +30 in late game Eironn is a hero that many players like to use and his viability is really high. His Signature Item will plain increase the effect of his freezing by adding a debuff on them and adding more time they are frozen, making him a really deadly hero to use.
Ferael +20 One of the strongest Signature Items and it will simply cripple the enemy team and prevent them from regenerating and also debuffing their attack rating a lot. Beast.
Gwyneth +20 if you use Gwyneth with Arthur, this is a really strong Signature Item, especially the +20 that adds the additional arrows whenever an ally uses their ultimate. Along with plain attack stat buff, this is really worth the usage.
Lyca +20 Crazy buff for the whole team and makes your whole team so much better. Still, #30 effect is not that much impact that you should do it, rather invest the emblems into other heroes.
Rowan +30 his Signature Item will give a ton of extra energy to your whole team and will boost every setup, not just himself and is really strong
Talene +30 Her Signature Item will make her stronger each time she will turn into Phoenix form and this happens a couple of times each battle, buffing her stats to a new crazy high. Not that she isn’t already crazy strong here, her Signature Item makes her even more powerful
Meta Heroes Super

Strong

Izold +30 Really useful buff that helps him survive and makes him more durable and the +30 benefit of becoming immune to control abilities makes a lot of sense.
Khazard +30 with his Signature Item Khazard will turn into a freezing machine and freeze enemies with every critical strike and even increases the duration of all debuffs your have on your enemies when this happens. This will skyrocket your team.
Lucretia +30 Her Signature Item will buff her for every enemy hero that will die, so this is what you want her to get when you use her in a cheese team setup.
NumisuNumisu +10 The additional totems are really useful, but don’t invest a single emblem into buffing the health of the emblems and stick to SI +10
Pippa +20 For me Pippa has the most interesting additions from her Signature Item and every 10 levels will add another special ability. +20 is enough and will give her teleported ally a nice immune effect.
saurusSaurus +30 his Signature Item makes him so powerful with adding healing when fully stacked for himself and when maxed out at +30 even for the full team. You will turn Saurus into a beast against boss fights who starts also healing your team as well as insane damage in the right team.
Silas +30 Just crazy what his SIgnature Item does! It simply blocks health regeneration of the enemy team automatically for every percent of health they lose. No-brainer to invest in!
thoranThoran +30 Hands down, this is such an overpowered Signature Item giving him extra survivability and his Retaliation can wipe out a whole team at once when he’s the last survivor and the situation favors it. If you use him, get it!
Kren +20 Simply makes Kren’s ability stronger at the very basic so super strong. Also the stun of the +20 Signature Items is great. The +30 isn’t that neccessary.
Respen +30 The buffs that buff itself and makes Respen a lot better. The additional haste for the whole team from his +30 SI is also really great.
Average athaliaAthalia +30 her Signature Item will give her a lot of durability during battles and also give Life Leech. If you’re using her it’s worth investing
twinsCelestial Twins +20 the amount of support and buffs they bring to your team is already pretty strong but with the Signature Item, they will start buffing each other as well for a huge amount making it worth upgrading their Signature Item if you use them without any doubt.
Ezio +20 Really helpful giving the fact how you use Ezio in most team compositions and adds nice durability to him. Signature Item +30 is useless in my opinion but +20 should be your priority if you have him.
Flora +20 Nice extra buff for Flora and getting +20 let her skill cycle rolling a lot quicker and giving her a nice buff. Wouldn’t neccessarily go towards +30 because the benefit compared to +10 isn’t that much.
Mehira +30 this Signature Item is also insane and gives mehira health whenever a teammate loses health and give 20% to her. She will be really hard to kill now and with a maxed Signature Item she even will gain additional energy when her health is full. This one is really sick!
Mezoth +30 Getting his Signature Item to +20 is mandatory for the energy gain at the start. Even +30 is useful if you use Mezoth frequently.
Nara +30 when first looking at her Signature Item you will think this won’t make a big boost, but in reality, she will become an automatic assassin to take out enemies very effectively and her skill will become a lot more deadly.
Orthros +30 his Signature Item adds freeze and also reduces enemy haste a lot and this makes him survive longer and a more durable hero to use when he can be squishy at times without a Signature Item.
TasiTasi +20 decreasing enemies attack ratings for a huge additional amount is useful and if you use Tasi, you will really appreciate this. Still, the above Signature items should be higher on your list
Raine +10 Her +10 bonus for the additional health and energy recovery is nice, but everything higher than that with the shield is non-sense, don’t waste emblems for that.
Zaphrael +10 Nice damage boost but wouldn’t recommend going higher than +10 as the other unlocks higher than that aren’t that much more.
zolrathZolrath +30 Not the craziest Signature Item on the list but the damage buff and benefit you will get for Zolrath is absolutely worth getting.
Alna +30 Her Signature Item doesn’t stand out much but makes her harder to be killed as all damage is practically delayed.
Weak ezizhEzizh +20 Ezizh already has insane power and can silence a whole team during the whole battle and his Signature Item makes his burning fire a lot more dangerous as well, so a really nice pick if you use him frequently.
Lorsan +20 Well, we all know how useful Lorsan is. His Signature Item sounds powerful but the reality is it won’t give that much of a boost to rank it higher here. Still on the higher prio. Only go to +20 as the +30 skill won’t happen that often.
Skriath +30 Getting his Signature Item is nothing we need to discuss about. He’s a really strong hero end-game so his SI will bring some advantages to the table. The only reason I have it ranked that low here in the section is that it won’t trigger much and has many dependencies. The damage over time from +30 is solid when it procs and happens during sandstorms.
Average

Heroes

Good Fawkes +30 Although not the strongest hero in the current meta, his Signature Item adds some nice benefits so if you use him frequently it’s a good idea to also invest into his Signature Item.
Satrana +30 Her Signature Item makes Satrana really painful for the enemies. Still, you need to get it to +30 to actually get the full power of it all.
Raku +30 Just insane. The haste reduction keeps basically active on the enemies and the extra damage burst is also super strong.
JOKER +30 A nice buff in stats and the full bonus also extends it to 15 seconds making it a really strong Signature Item overall for JOKER.
Eluard  +30 The extra shield is really valuable so worth getting. If you use heroes in the frontline that deal damage or you use heroes that go behind the enemy lines, the extra damage is also really worth getting.
Tidus +30 Makes him a lot more durable and neglecting all control abilities also makes it harder to counter Tidus. Actually a strong Signature Item.
Average Anoki +20 The buffs are alright and make him more versatile, no doubt, but nothing too crazy here. Also, his +30 bonus is not worth investing that many faction emblems
BrutusBrutus +20 Long story short, get his +20 as fast as possible because Brutus will become obsolete later in the game. Perks are solid but without using the hero you shouldn’t put any faction emblems into him.
Wu Kong
+20 His Signature Item adds protective barriers making him survive better until he can use his ultimate and also adds more additional protective barriers to him and his clones. With this Signatur Item, he gets really strong.
estrildaEstrilda +30 Great buffs for your backline heroes and absolutely worth using.
Gorvo +20 Absolutely solid Signature Item, especially the +20 SI that will convert the remaining shield into energy. The +30 is debatable, I’d say not necessary but can also be something to think about.
hendrikHendrik +10 Getting his Signature Item +10 is absolutely worth it, the buff is nice and purple emblems are worth investing in. But don’t do more, the +20 is pretty much useless, and unless you’re swimming in emblems (what you obv. don’t), his +30 far too expensive for the return value.
Theowyn +30 Great to debuff the enemy team but not that outstanding. Still, a useful and also linear increase of Theowyn in general.
QUEEN +30 The shield is useful, no doubt, but the stats are lacking and the shield is too far gone again to make the stats buff from +30 really stand out.
Peggy +20 The extra stat buff for the guards make them more nasty to deal with for enemies, but the control immunity is not needed that much.
Mortas +20 His Signature Item is not that outstanding, however, getting it to +20 for the AoE effect added to his Greed ability is absolutely worth it
Nakoruru +30 Her stun effect is useful, no doubt. I personally think the +10 and +20 effects are a little wasted on normal attacks and fine and you need to go for +30 to get the extended stun.
Oden +20 Really useful skill from his Signature Item and the +20 makes it really burn. Don’t invest the faction emblems for that +30% damage, it’s not worth it, +20 is working super fine here.
Rosaline +20 if you use Rosaline in a great combination with the right hero they can already deal a ton of deadly things to the enemy, with her Signature Item it will buff the hero she’s following again for a lot more.
Skreg +30 Really nice Signature Item that will make his ultimate cycles a lot faster. You need to get +30 through to get that initial 300 Energy ultimate which helps a lot.
safiyaSafiya +20 When first reading about her stacking buff you think this will be crazy strong… but in reality, this buff isn’t stacking up that fast. Getting her Signature Item to +20 is a good choice, no doubt, but only to +20 as the +30 effect is pretty useless because almost never triggered.
Weak kelthurKelthur +30 The problem I have with his Signature Item is that 20 level range to get the benefit which gets harder and harder later in AFK Arena. The only useful thing is the +30 bonus but if you really want to invest that many emblems for that is questionable
nemoraNemora +10 similar to Tasi, the additional healing is nice and if you use her frequently also useful but shouldn’t be that high on your list of Signature Items.

Heroes

Good Antandra +30 Great Signature Item that really gives Antandra a boost. If you use her, absolutely worth getting with the higher stats buff and the energy restoration for your allies.
Rigby +30 Nice extra damage and the knocked down effect is really powerful.
Seirus +10 The additional health is helpful but don’t go further than +10 with his Signature Item, the additional buff won’t give that much extra.
Solise +30 Getting additional enemies to be attacked by her plant is great. The +10 and +20 isn’t that useful though.
Vurk +30 The additional bolts will make him deal significantly more damage, so worth getting if you use Vurk for sure.
Average Drez +20 His shield is nice and getting it 4 times in a battle worth getting. Nothing to criticize here but no need to get +30!
grezhulGrezhul +30 Make his skeletons more versatile and is useful primarily in boss fights. Not bad but also not that versatile that I would put his Signature item higher on the list.
Isabella +30 Additional damage triggered by skills. Absolutely fine but not outstanding.
kazKaz +30 Nice extra boost of stats at the beginning. She’s squishy and will get even more squishy with that but also stronger.
Cecilia +20 Improve what she does best. Still, her Signature Item +30 perk is not worth it, but +20 absolutely.
Oscar +30 No doubt that his Signature item ability is useful to have here and there, but it’s simply too expensive to build looking at the rare use cases when you even have an enemy hero that can go behind your backline.
Lucius +10 Not only is Lucius not important in end game (yes, sad but true), his SIgnature Item also only adds a small bonus that won#t even make much of a difference. +10 is alright in my opinion as purple emblems are alright to get and if you still use him frequently it’s worth it.
thaneThane +30 The damage increase is quite alright but you need to go to +30 here so it will get triggered when his target won’t hit him. Otherwise, any AoE damage can prevent him triggering his SI
Khasos +30 Solid Signature Item and one that should be on your list if you use Khasos frequently! More axes throwing and recovering health.
Torne +30 Actually a useful Signature item effect but it takes too long to actually stack up for a good buff on his base stats. The immunity to control from +30 is worth using, but too expensive when you think about the amount of emblems you need to invest.
Ulmus +10 Only average and the +20 effect is a joke and the +30 even more. If you use Ulmus frequently only go for the +10 Signature Item!
Warek +10 The additional health restoration of +1% for getting the Signature item from +10 to +20 is scandalous. His +30 is also too slow to actually give a huge benefit, so only take SI +10 for Warek.

Baden +10 Horribly designed. The additional health for the phantoms doesn’t help at all because they simply don’t have much health and still die fast. His +30 effect is a joke.
Belinda +10 Another horrible Signature Item. The +30 effect for 40 energy is a bad joke and also the additional effect on Divine Retribution raised is bad as it only will deal 40% of the original damage.
Ukyo +30
ShemiraShemira +30 I understand this is intended to make Shemira a decent damage dealer for bosses, but in reality, it’s not even close to give her enough versatility for that. Don’t invest the emblems to be honest, you won’t use her later in the game anymore.
