It’s difficult to emphasize just how very important Astrals are in Final Fantasy: A New Empire. Since the addition of the Astral Shrine and Shiva, the first of what we hope will become a long list of Astral Summons, the mechanics of the game have changed for both offensive and defensive players alike. The boosts these Astral’s weild are so powerful, it’s almost like being able to send two heroes together in the same march.
Similar to heroes, Astrals are only as strong as you make them. They require constant leveling in order to maintain their dominance over your opponent. This guide will help you strategically level your Astral and provide you with the exact number of materials required to reach the level you desire.
How to Level-Up Your Astral
You can increase the level of your Astral by hitting the “Level Up” button from within the Astral Shrine. To do this, you will need Sigils for the specific Astral you are trying to level up. Sigils used to level up one Astral cannot be used to level up a different Astral. For example, leveling up Shiva will require Shiva Sigils, while leveling up Leviathan requires Leviathan Sigils, neither of which are interchangable.
Currently, an Astral can only be leveled up to 100, at which point you will be able to master all nine skills on your Astral’s skill tree. Each time you level up ypour Astral you will gain skill points, with more skill points awarded to higher level Astrals. Your Astral’s health also gets maxed out each time you level up, similar to heroes and MP. Be sure to take advantage of this and save yourself from using too many Healing Talismans on your Astral.
Where to get Sigils
There are a few different ways to go about obtaining Sigils used to level your Astral. Although they can be purchased in relatively large quantities from the Gold Store, packs containing Sigils for the Astral you want are not always readily available. If this is the case, you can sometimes force the desired pack to appear by going into the Astral Shrine and tapping on the number of Sigils you have, then “Get More”. Generally, 3,000 or more Sigils in one pack is considered a good deal for an Astral under level 50, however, as your Astral climbs to higher levels they will require exponentially more Sigils to level up.
Besides paying for them by purchasing packs you can obtain Sigils as rewards for completing certain events, so be sure to keep an eye on the events page! You can also buy Sigils from the Moogle Market during Monster Hunting Trophy events such Kingatrice, Chicatrice, Tonberries, etc. Moogle Market events are a great opportunity to obtain large quantities of Sigils for your desired Astral.
Shiva Sigil Requirements
Thus far, only two Astrals have been released – Shiva, Goddess of Ice and Leviathan, Goddess of Water. Both have a maximum level of 100, at which point they are able to master all of their Astral Skills. As new Astrals are added to the game, be sure to check the Hub for updated level requirements. You can read our article all about Leviathan here or learn more about specific Shiva combat strategies here.
The following chart explains how many Shiva Sigils are required for each level. Not all Astrals require the exact same amount of Sigils for each level – just like not all heroes have the same EXP requirements for each level – but this chart will give you a good idea of about how many Sigils you will need to hit the desired level.

Follow this guide to level up your Astral to new heights and obliterate the competition! Keep in mind that you can also use Astral Sigils the same way that you would use a Healing Talisman, since leveling up your Astral will also increase their HP back to full. Always be on the lookout for free events that allow you to obtain Sigils for your Astral. That about wraps up our Sigil Requirements guide!
