Wixwell Path Event Guide – Is It Worth It?

The Wixwell Path Event is now live, giving players a chance to earn Wixwell’s Souls. Additionally, there’s a selection of other Wixwell-themed items including an Avatar, and Mythical and Legendary Skill Tomes on offer.

This is also a good chance to pick up other resources ranging from Silver to Chaos Dust, Oil, and more.

As usual with this kind of Event, you’ll need to earn Key Coins to unlock each stage of the Path. This time around, you can earn Key Coins by:

  • Summoning Champions
  • Upgrading Champions

This event is best done through summoning with Shards. You can then offset any additional points through training. Whilst you can complete the event entirely with Champion training, this will cost much more time and energy than the Shard route.

So, which path should you choose? Let’s take a look.

Which Wixwell Path Should You Choose?

There are essentially three paths available: two side that paths lead to Event Keys, and a third, central path, that leads to Wixwell’s Souls.

You’ll need five Event Keys to unlock the central path. There are four Event Keys available on each side route, meaning you’ll have to clear at least one side path all the way down.

Here’s a breakdown in terms of total Key Coin cost to reach the first Event Key and Wixwell’s Souls:

  • 21,500 to clear the path to the first Event Key
  • 26,500 to unlock the 3-star Soul
  • 36,000 to unlock the 4-star Soul
  • 87,300 to unlock the 5-star Soul

Unless you have a large amount of Sacred Shards already, you’ll likely need to spend real money to buy more. Sacred Shards provide 4,500 event points per Shard when you summon a Champion – the highest possible amount you can gain for an event activity.

Take a look at the Wixwell Path Event spreadsheet and watch Saphyrra’s video for a complete breakdown of the amount of points you’ll need to unlock the various rewards, along with the most efficient way to earn Key Coins for this event.

Is the Wixwell Path Event Worth it?

This event could be good if:

  • You have plenty of spare Sacred Shards (or don’t mind buying more with real money)
  • You’re interested in the weekend Summon event
  • You have Wixwell and want the Souls

If all these are a yes, then you should be able to make the points needed by summoning then upgrading Champions without too much hassle. Check out this video on how to level your Champions efficiently.

That said, given there are plenty of other good rewards including Legendary Skill Tomes, using this event to stock up on some rare items is another perfectly viable (and potentially less costly) approach.

It’s also worth noting that Wixwell’s Souls might not be that important, depending on what content you plan to run with him.

Having the 4-Star Soul could be helpful for both Hydra and Clan Boss, but even then it might not be a game-changer, as HellHades discusses in his video below.

Are you going for this event, and if so, are you only after the Souls? Let us know in the comments!

The way this path is designed, to get the keys for the Wixwell souls, is – to put it gently – atrocious.

Disagree. FTP and very easy even without shards to get 3 star and 4 star soul. At least they thought about lower level players and made a soul accessible for all.

How is it easy without shards? You basically need to upgrade 85-ish rank 5 champions to level 6 to get the 3 star soul…
No, this event is just a waste of time without using shards and Sacred shards in particular.

I got the 3 star soul champ training with just CvC rewards and 1 days energy. That is really easy. The 4 star soul wasn’t far off, that was easy without Gems if you wanted over the 3 remaining days. The 5 star soul took some effort but it is valuable. Got it with only 4 shards and champ training. Done a day early. They made it so any FTP could get the 3 star easy. and 4 star wasn’t much further. Not sure where you are getting your numbers from, doing it properly with brews it was easy.

Sorry, I ment ranking up from 4 to 5. And yeah, if you pop 4 sacred shards you obviously do not need to put in much effort to get the 3 star soul. But the thing is, most FTP players were probably low or was even empty on Sacred shards after the Wixwell fusion.
