If you want to make Sonja perform at peak performance in AFK Arena, you need to run the right built. While many players think simply maxing out will do the trick (well, not too wrong), there are certain sweetspots with Sonja that will give a big boost so I have some recommendations below that you will very likely find interesting.
Important! If you want to check how well Sonja does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Sonja’s Signature Item
Sonja’s Signature Item should be at +30. Long story short, it suits her kit but her kit is so slow and she dies so fast in higher level deficits that you shouldn’t mind investing into her at all right now. Still, looking at the meta you will not see this hero play any significant role towards late- or end-game so save up the emblems. You can maybe get the +1 to unlock the skill if your eally want to, but that’s it.. If you want to learn more about my recommended priority how you should invest into Signature Items in AFK Arena, check out my SI Priority Guide here. Furniture Recommendation
Overall it’s recommended to get Sonja’s -/9 furniture set bonus. Sonja… Actually contributes to her kit, but that overall kit is so bad that I simply can’t recommend any investment!

Waistband of Resilence is the best artifact to run with Sonja in most cases, although you can also consider running Duras Call or Lifes Limit as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E0.. Actually there is no real reason to invest in her engravings at all right now. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
