Choosing Reroll Targets
This guide helps with rerolling strategy and targets. For a guide explaining how to reroll, see the Reroll Guide.
Choosing who to reroll for can be difficult. There are a couple of ways to approach rerolling.
- Roll for your favorite character. Since almost anyone in Dragalia Lost can be made strong, playing favorites doesn't have any severe repercussions.
- Going for meta picks. Stronger Adventurers and Dragons will allow players to clear more content, and do so more easily.
- Trying to accumulate as many 5★ Adventurers and Dragons as possible. More is almost always better, but the value of any given 5★ quite a bit.
Pick a strategy that works for you, and remember that rerolling can take a long time. Delaying the start of the game for too long is no fun, can cause burnout, and is not guaranteed to yield a perfect account.
Generally speaking, the agreed-upon standard for a good reroll is:
One 5★ Adventurer and one 5★ Dragon, not including the Adventurer from the first summon (which is guaranteed to be 5★).
Recommended 5★ Adventurers
Although all 5★ Adventurers are strong, some are slightly better to aim for. Adventurers and Dragons come in five different elements, and must match in order to be used properly with each other.
Below is a list of recommended reroll targets in the permanent 5★ Adventurer pool, selected for their ability to clear content easily and effectively. Limited summons are not included.
Hildegarde has been among the best reroll targets since launch thanks to her powerful healing and elemental versatility. She won't take increased damage from any element, and can begin healing from the start of the match with Skill Prep. She is a powerful pick in endgame content for Light Adventurers, such as High Zodiark's Trial.
Summer Celliera is a powerful attacker attuned to the Water Element. She has the coveted ability to Bog enemies, and can break bosses quickly as a sword. She is highly effective in all difficult content for Water such as High Brunhilda's Trial and Astral Phraeganoth.
Rena is a Flame unit with an excellent Co-ability and exceptional damage. Even better is her ability to inflict Burn, a status which can be exploited by teammates for insane damage. She is great for all endgame content where Stun Resistance is not required, such as Astral Hypnos and the Mercurial Gauntlet.
Mikoto is Rena's counterpart: Although he's a bit weaker than her, he is useful in content where Stun Resistance is useful, such as High Midgardsormr's Trial. Mikoto is more flexible with dragons than most, and will perform well with any 5★ Dragon. Mikoto can be obtained from the first summon, and is one of the best Adventurers available from that pool.
Victor is the premiere damage dealer for Wind, inflicting obscene damage with Bleed. He is strong in all endgame content for Wind, including High Mercury's Trial and Astral Valfarre.
Lin You does not have the raw damage of Victor, but remains one of the top Wind damage dealers. She grants utility through a defensive Co-ability and her ability to inflict Sleep. In addition, she is much stronger with 5★ Wind Dragon Long Long than other Adventurers.
Wedding Elisanne is a strong damage dealer for Wind. She lacks the outright power of Victor, but makes up for it with the ability to quickly break bosses with Force Strikes. She is useful in all endgame Wind content, such as High Mercury's Trial.
Natalie is an extremely powerful Shadow-attuned damage dealer. However, she requires a lot of skill to play well, as her kit brings her to just 20% HP, and requires her to be on low HP to do maximum damage. Natalie is a high-risk, high-reward character who is not for the faint of heart, but can dominate endgame content, even against elements she's not strong against.
Recommended 5★ Dragons
Dragons differ from Adventurers-- being essentially equipment-- but with such high stat bonuses, they should be considered just as important as Adventurers when rerolling. Below is a list of recommended 5★ Dragons, all of which are excellent for regular content. The endgame consideration to make here is that High Dragon Trials are made much more accessible with a 5★ Gacha Dragon.
Dragons are recommended based on their ability to provide meaningful stats and abilities for clearing general content, and their ability to synergize well with existing Adventurers. Limited summons are not included.
The following is a list of recommended Dragons. Not all 5★ Dragons are listed, only recommended ones. They are ordered in their rank from best to worst.
Recommended 4★ Adventurers and Dragons
Although they aren't the deciding factor in whether to keep rerolled accounts, 4★ Adventurers make nice additions and can provide a head start on some content. Although they are more common than 5★ Adventurers, some can perform at a top tier level.
Below is a list of the best 4★ Adventurers along with the best Dragon pairings for each.
Adventurers are recommended based on their ability to clear general content as easily as possible for a F2P player. Limited summons are not included.
Emma (Flame): Cerberus, Agni, Konohaya Sakuya
Verica (Flame): Phoenix
Vanessa (Flame): Konohaya Sakuya, Cerberus, Agni
Karina (Water): Siren, Leviathan, Vodyanoy
Nurse Aeleen (Water): Poseidon, Poli'ahu
Noelle (Wind): Zephyr, Vayu, Roc
Addis (Wind): Vayu, Zephyr, Roc
Lowen (Wind): Freyja, Garuda, Stribog
Odetta (Light): Cupid, Gilgamesh, Lindworm
Yachiyo (Light): Cupid, Gilgamesh, Lindworm
The best thing about 4★ Dragons is their availability for F2P, especially with the addition of Moonlight Stones in the Void Battles Treasure Trade.
Dragalia Lost provides a free dragon of each element, although only Brunhilda and Zodiark are considered usable due to their Strength boost. This means that Water, Wind, and Light are the most important elements to get a 4★ Dragon in. Below is a list of the most useful 4★ Dragons for new players to own, with the highest priority in italics.
Dragons are recommended based on their overall usefulness for a completely F2P player. Limited summons are not included.
Flame: Phoenix, Ifrit
Water: Vodyanoy, Poli'ahu
Wind: Roc, Stribog
Light: Lindworm, Unicorn
Shadow: Juggernaut, Silke
Note: Phoenix is a special case due to her incredible healing ability. She is an exception amongst 4★ Dragons and is widely considered to be one of the best Dragons in the game.
