Idleon Best Star Sign (Starting & Progression) – Constellation Guide

Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Samuel Franklin

In this comprehensive Idleon guide I recommend the best starting star sign for a new account or character and the best overall options as you progress based on specific game activities. Optimisation of star signs is an important contributor to your overall account progression and also one of the easier mechanics to master. Available from World 1 the number of star signs you have available will increase as you unlock new game worlds and can be changed freely once unlocked.

In this guide I will cover the basics of the star sign system, the best starting star sign and the best star sign combinations based on activity. If you find this page useful and want Idleon assistance in other game mechanics I have curated a page for all my Idleon guides.

Idleon Star Sign Basics Overview

The star sign system in Idleon is one source of optimisation to progress faster through the game and functions as follows:

  • Players set an initial star sign when creating a character which can be changed later.
  • In order to change star signs or unlock new ones players must reach the telescope located at the top of the big tree in W1 (Where the Branch Ends). Once unlocked star signs can be changed through the quick reference menu so players do not need to constantly revisit this location.
  • Star signs are unlocked on account wide basis but are set per individual character.
  • Unlocking new star sign options requires players to complete specific constellation challenges across Idleon that are found on specific game maps. A full list of these challenges is available on the Idleon wiki.
  • Initially players can select only a single star sign at a time although eventually can equip up to 2 and then 3.
  • Some star signs have positive and negative effects that provide a trade off for the player when activated.
  • In World 4 players can obtain chips for the laboratory that allows you to double all of your currently equipped character star signs.
  • In World 4 players can unlock the ability to activate infinite star signs within the Rift which makes all unlocked star signs active at a time based on their World 4 shiny pet breeding levels. This also removes the negative elements of certain star signs and players can still double the activated star signs using the laboratory mechanic noted above.

Idleon Best Starting Star Sign

When players first start their Idleon account or a new character they will have the choice of 4 different star signs that each provide a boost to one of the character stats (WIS, STR, LUK and AGI) along with some small character utility. These star signs are:

  • The Book Worm (1% Class EXP Gain +3 WIS)
  • The Buff Guy (+1% Total Damage +3 STR)
  • The Fuzzy Dice (+3 Talent Points +3 LUK)
  • Flexo Bendo (+2% Movement Speed +3 AGI).

The Idleon best starting star sign is The Fuzzy Dice as this option provides 3 additional talent points that provide approximately one character level of power while the LUK also has a small boost to damage and accuracy as a beginner class before players take their first class upgrade.

Given star signs can be changed relatively early in your Idleon account progression if you have already selected any of the other star sign options this will not have a noticeable long term impact to your account.

Idleon Best Star Sign Overall

The below Idleon best star sign recommendations are based on my thousands of hours of gameplay experience and are split based on different game activities including the effect and location on the star sign cosmos window. They are listed in priority order so that players can start from the top of the list and work downwards based on the star signs you have available and how many you can equip.

Given every Idleon account is different there may be slight differences in the best star sign for you based on your particular progression but these best star signs below will serve as a general guide. As noted above in the star sign overview even after unlocking all infinite star signs your active star signs will be doubled with the appropriate laboratory chip so selecting the best options for each activity is still important in order to min-max your character.

AFK Fighting

For AFK fighting a focus on fight AFK gain and mob respawn will provide the best benefits although the best options are highly dependent on your account:

Star Sign Effect Cosmos Location
The Forsaken* -80% Total HP -50% Defence +6% Fight AFK Gain Chronus
S. Snoozer Major +4% Fight AFK Gain Hydron
Silly Snoozer +2% Fight AFK Gain Chronus
Grim Reaper Major +4% Mob Respawn rate Hydron
Grim Reaper +2% Mob Respawn rate Chronus
Killian Maximus^ 3% Multikill Per Tier Seraph

*Only when the negative HP/defence doesn’t impact your ability to AFK at a particular monster
^Multikill per tier may be stronger than respawn rate or AFK gains at high tiers of multikill

Active Fighting

In comparison to AFK fighting players will likely want to obtain damage or other utility like drop rate or experience gained to maximise the returns for your time depending on your goals.

Star Sign Effect Cosmos Location
Druipi Major +12% Drop Rarity Seraph
Pirate Booty +5% Drop Rarity Chronus
Activelius +15% Class EXP when fighting actively Chronus
Beanbie Major* +20% Golden Food bonuses Seraph
Damarian Major 25% Total Damage Seraph
The Bulwark^ +20% Total Damage, -12% Movement Speed Hydron
The Overachiever +15% Total Damage, -7% Fight AFK Gain Hydron
The Fiesty +6% Total Damage Hydron
Fatty Doodoo^ -3% Movement Speed, +5% Defence, +2% Total Damage Chronus
The Buff Guy +1% Total Damage, +3 STR Chronus

*Depends on your available golden foods
^Offset the negative movement speed by using green speed potions

AFK Skilling (General)

When AFK Skilling players will want to acquire efficiency, skill AFK gain or skill EXP from star signs where applicable depending on the skilling activity.

Star Sign Effect Cosmos Location
Comatose Major +4% Skill AFK Gain Hydron
The Big Comatose +2% Skill AFK Gain Chronus
The OG Skiller +5% Carry Cap, +1% Skill AFK gain, +2% All Skill Prowess Chronus
Mount Eaterest +10% chance to not consume food, +15% All Food Effect Chronus
Beanbie Major +20% Golden Food bonuses* Seraph
Sir Savvy Major +6% Skill EXP gain Hydron

*Depends on your available golden foods

AFK Skilling (Specific Skills)

In addition the the above generalist skilling star signs there are several focused on specific skills that players should consider given they are powerful. For most situations I recommend prioritising these over the general skilling star signs above.
