Best Build for Zikis in AFK Arena (Artifacts, Furniture, Signature Item, Emblems)

afk arena best zikis build

If you want to make Zikis 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 Zikis 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 Zikis does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here.

Zikis’s Signature Item

Zikis’s Signature Item should be at +30. Zikis’ higher crit block rate is useful for more sustain and the full SI +30 effect will trigger Lethargy a lot more often to make him more valuable for the whole team. Useful if you use him in team setups frequently..

Furniture Recommendation

Overall it’s recommended to get Zikis’s 9/9 furniture set bonus. Zikis’ automatically applying the first lethargy effect with the 3/9 furniture is helpful. Extending the Burning Sight as well, but if that would be a little more I’d recommend it more looking at how much you need to invest to get the full furniture bonus.

Recommended Artifacts

Verdant Longbow is the best artifact to run with Zikis in most cases, although you can also consider running Duras Eye or Shroud of Verdure as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available.


In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E30.. The skill and stats from E30 are a game-changer here and absolutely worth getting and you will feel the difference in battle, although I don’t recommend investing more. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
