Using Acorns in AFK Journey

In AFK Journey, Acorns are used for hero ascension, and their consumption depends on the heroes’ faction and rarity. The other thing you’ll need for ascension is Soul Sigils, which are essentially duplicates of your characters.

Now, upgrading S-Level characters (start out at Epic/Gold) requires much more Acorns than A-Level characters (start out as Elite/Purple). Also, Celestial / Hypogean heroes don’t need them at all. So, if you just want a quick run-down of ascension requirements for each tier, check out the table below.

How to Get Acorns in AFK Journey

Now, you’ll need a lot of Acorns if you want to ascend all the best heroes in AFK Journey, and there are three main sources from which you can get them:

  • Recruit – You can check the rates at the Tavern (Prize Pool button). All-character recruit has a chance to drop faction-specific Acorns, while others drop Omni Acorns, which you can then convert to whichever faction you want.
  • Noble Path – AFK Journey’s battle pass. You’ll get a couple of acorns for free, and you can buy the premium pass for even more.
  • Legend Trial – The best place to get Acorns. You unlock it once you clear AFK stage 166, and it works the same way as the Factional Tower from AFK Arena (four ladders, one for each faction, and only characters from the same faction can challenge a ladder).

Well, that’s all we’ve got on how to get and use Acorns in AFK Journey. Hopefully, now you have all the info you need to ascend all of your favorite heroes. Also, do check out our list of AFK Journey codes, as they’ll score you the easiest diamonds you’ll ever get in this game.
