It’s important to remember that no matter the ranking, there is no difference in rarity between the units. All units can go to level 100, and thus they’re all viable for clearing all of the game’s content, even the ones listed under B-Tier. No unit is capped at level 80 or below. When uncapping your character for the fourth time (4 stars), you will unlock his Hidden Ability, which is usually very powerful.
This tier list is based on the japanese version, and will be altered if sufficient balancing changes are found in the english version. It will also be updated constantly as each new unit releases.
Monster units can also reach level 100 like the rest of the characters. However their stats and skill tree passives are often not up to par. They can still be used successfully of course, but perhaps they’re not ideal for the new player this guide is aimed at.
This tier list will not include PvP ratings, because the english version doesn’t have said feature at launch. They will be added on a separate list once it comes out, if deemed necessary.
Last Update: 11/26/2019, added Collection of Mana collab Units.
These few Units excel at their given role, which mostly revolves around dealing the most damage possible in the shortest amount of time. For the min-maxers out there, investing in these characters is sure to pay off in dividends, as they are the strongest in the game.
You’ll often find these units repeatedly while browsing your friend list. Their skill tree is filled with useful passives that save a lot of Skill Capacity in the long run (Skills that a Unit learns naturally via their tree cost 0 SC to equip). Even if they can be further reinforced via the right Arks, their natural skillset is good enough to warrant a role in any team.
These units are still very strong, and only slightly less optimal than their S-Tier counterparts. They are usually really versatile, and because of their skill spread, they can usually fulfill multiple roles at once, which pushes them above A.
These units can perform their role adequately, and are not too far behind the S-tier units. They are generally used as replacements for those, but they’re still considered very good at what they do.
These units have respectable power, but either their skill tree or their combat abilities are a bit lacking when compared to the above. Their performance will generally depend on which Arks/skills you have available for them.
These units usually have a poor skill spread under their tree, often saving only a little SC towards their builds. Additionally, their combat performance is a bit subpar, although they’re still better than the monster units. They end up relying a lot on whatever Arks you have available, so you’ll need a strong Ark roster for them to compare to the higher tiered units.
