Hello all! There’s a great number of randomly distributed Soul Farming questions out there. I thought I’d create a guide of what works best for me in the official forums for guides. As people feed me corrections and additions, I’ll update this guide. Comment below with those corrections and additions.

Please feel free to add to this with your own version of what you enjoy using.
INVITE CODE: BLACKGUARD_1
The devs asked for a invite code. There it is. Win.
There are a few solid ways to farm Souls.
-Battles (caps at 40)
-Costumes (Adds bonuses to earned souls)
-Glory (40 for 15 glory)
If there are more, forgive me and I’ll edit.
THE BEST - Challenges + Troops + Costume
I’ll just skip to the best for the sake of those that want their answer NOW. The most favorable, easy, and highest yield, are the CHALLENGES. You combo that with Troops & Costumes to give yourself the max possible each time.
Challenge math. 20 Kingdoms, 7 challenges each, 5 battles per challenge. Soul gain per challenge is 5 + 10 + 15 + 20 + 100 + 20 (4 per battle for the foes you vanquished) equals a total gain of 170 souls per challenge. That equals 23,800 total souls available from challenges with no modifications. This is a lot of Souls! (Thanks melkathi & IronyMan! ^_^)
Note about Costumes:
Costumes only grant their bonus to Battles, Challenges, Defense, and Quests.
There are 7 Costumes that yield a bonus. The best being Celestial Armor.
Celestial Armor - 500 Gems
The catch with armor, is that they cost Gems. These can be extremely difficult to obtain. You can earn them from:
In Battle (rare)
This isn’t to discourage you from farming until you’ve got this pricey costume, but it is certainly more rewarding to see a double your Soul earnings each Challenge or competed anything in fact.
SECOND BEST - Invasion / Rank + Troops + Armor
Yielding both high gold, rank, glory each day, and souls? Yes please!
Now it needs to be said that this isn’t easy either, hence it ranked lower. Player decks are nasty at higher ranks. A soul farming deck isn’t the best for killing players. You’ll need to capitalize on the AI mistakes.
Watch for a full mana opponent. If you can’t handle its cast, leave a set of skulls up to try and buy a turn for mana. AI will foolishly take the skulls every time. Sounds bad? Not if you know that extra turn buys you the time you needed to win.
Lastly, Rank 1 will give you 300 souls as a reward. JUICY! Worth the climb.
THIRD BEST - Arena
Though the Arena does give you a higher yeild of souls per game vs a standard battle (400 / 8 = 50), it’s also difficult for some and only a better option if you can master all 8 wins each time. I encourage this method for vets who have gotten exceptionally good at the game and have also cleared all challenges.
FOURTH BEST - Guild Tasks
This is a solid way to earn the, passively. You’ll need a guild, active members, and gold to progress through the tasks. They may take time if you don’t have an active guild.
NOPE - Glory, Tribute, Defense, Treasure Maps
These last ones shouldn’t be banked on. They are random, or costly. Save Glory for new weapons and cards each week. Way more with it. Treasure maps do get you some souls, but for the time invested, you’d be much better with other methods.
KINGDOM - Pridelands
+2 Red Mana Bonus
BANNER - Stoneheim
Buffs the weak Valkyrie
BRIAN THE LUCKY
GREEN AND BROWN
BLUE AND PURPLE
RED AND YELLOW
BRIAN THE LUCKY - AGAIN!?
GREEN AND BROWN
It’s really strait forward.
Valk pumps Acolyte pumps Brian x 2. Use Brian as many times as you can. You might notice a terrifying doubling effect with him if magic gets going.
Brian can literally make your team unbeatable. I’ve buffed deep into the double digits just for funzies. It was overkill, but still fun to watch.
Acolyte buffed with magic, will clear the board. I think it even gets you a treasure map every time. I’ve got 50+ maps right now. No idea when I’ll use them…
Give this team a shot. Have fun.
