Tier List (Skill Inheritance Version)

  • This tier list factors in Skill Inheritance when rating heroes. For the original tier list that does not factor in skill inheritance, see here.
Updates

Last Updated: April 26

  • 3/30: Major hero rating updates. Rating criteria updated. Grading tiers expanded to match the original tier list for better consistency.
  • 3/27: Initial draft published.
Rating Criteria 

Ratings in this tier list factor in Skill Inheritance. Units are rated by their neutral base stats, potential, and important match-ups. As with all tier lists, ratings can be subjective and should only serve as a general guideline.

S+: Units in this tier are at the very top and define the current meta. Their presence typically requires specific counters in order to deal with them effectively.

S: Extremely powerful units who widely dominate the current meta. They are capable of not only effectively countering color-advantage units, but also perform exceedingly well against same-color units. These units can also put up a fight against the color they are weak against.

A+: The tier for units who can effectively counter color-advantage units and perform decently against same-color units. These units may also be able to put up a fight against a few units of the color they are weak against.

A: The tier for serviceable units with average performance who can serve as a specific counter or niche against the above tiers. They should be able to effectively counter the units they are supposed to counter without strictly relying on Gem weapons or Triangle Adept to do so.

B: This tier consists of sub-optimal units or units that are difficult to rate, such as healers. Units in this tier can still be viable and useful given enough investment, but may not be the most efficient unit to use for a specific role.

C: This tier consists of units with very poor base stat distributions, making them quite difficult to use effectively. They are easily outclassed by higher tier units.


Factors NOT considered:

  • IVs are typically not directly considered, but may be recommended at times.
  • Synergistic team compositions which utilize Cavalry, Armor, Dragon, or Flying team buffs heavily are not considered.
  • Investment costs for promotions and skills are generally not considered in order to ensure more accurate analysis.
  • Availability of a unit is not considered.
