Notice: This tier list also includes units on JP server and takes their EX 120 abilities into consideration. Units are not sorted from best to worst.
Missing units, wrong ratings, or any input can be given in the comments.
SS: Gamechangers / Meta Defining. S: Top tier. A+: Good outside of mono teams and has useful buff/debuffs to help the party. A: Fairly standard, but still good in mono teams. B: Situational. C: Outdated.
If you want to reroll the game, check the reroll page instead, since this list includes many limited time units that are not available in the gacha pool.
Lara is definitely S. Probably you havent seen one that's built correctly. Fought Lara in top 200 yesterday, she wrecked my Jeume Elena Locke team with barrage. Very accurate, and also you can't hit her evasion build if you are not investing HEAVILY on accuracy or doesnt have guaranteed hit.
Honestly I see more Lara then WVik lately, but imo Wvik should be S as well. Dispel spread is always good.
good to heard that SSS is coming out soon with seipheroth and squall
This tier list is mostly based on value, which also often determines their longevity or relevance in the meta, with a slight insight from JP meta because their version is months ahead of global. Yes, it is slightly weighted in PvP since you always have the option to choose lower difficulty to farm for gears in PvE.
Units in A or B tier can still take on SS tier units with "the right setup", but requires more investment compared to higher tier units that already have good stats or abilities before taking vc or team setup into consideration.
Many of their positions are definitely debatable since there can be no objective tier list for this, but all criticisms are welcomed, so feel free to post any reasoning for why a unit should be higher or lower.
Forgive me but I don't see why pvp should be taken into account at all. If you try to climb, you will see the best units and you will see them often. PVE is where a player is totally in the dark about units they haven't currently invested in.
My Opinion as competitive player:
Oberon should stay in SS, so dangerous especially when built with high accuracy (Caelum VC GG)
Also I think lara is S, dont have her myself but she's one of those units that can easily take down my Elena. She used to be S, why now A when she's much more used in every PVP modes than before?
S.Elsi in A perhaps. Only has one guaranteed and thats her LB. Magic attack easily took her down.
This tier list is pure based on pvp. The game isn't only based on pvp. There are A tier there that can defeat some SS and S tier. Frederika and Sterne Liones are some of them with the right espers and VC.
