[thoran]Hands down the best tank in the game. Thoran can cheat death and also deal massive damage—sometimes even one-shotting the enemy team. He becomes even stronger with his EX weapon as he can form a pact with an ally, taking damage on their behalf and getting healed when the ally deals damage.
[smokey]Some of the best supports who can heal and buff nearby allies. They excel in the Dream Realm, but their aura only affects allies within a few tiles, which limits the team compositions you can use them in.
[rowan]Fills the same niche as in AFK Arena as an energy battery and excels at it, making him crucial for any story progression team. Initially, his healing is sufficient to sustain the team, but later stages necessitate pairing him with another healer.
[koko]An amazing support who can stagger the damage her allies take. While not very ‘flashy’ early on, her true value shines later in both Story and Dream Realm, and she becomes pivotal in PVP for countering the Eironn meta team by removing CC.
[cecia]A summoner capable of dealing significant damage and controlling enemies with crowd control. Her summon allows her to turn battles into 6vs5, keeping the backline occupied. While she excels in story mode throughout, her performance in other modes declines past the early game due to her reliance on a slow-charging Ultimate.
[antandra]The best A-level tank known for her taunting, CC, and debuff capabilities while protecting allies with shields. She excels in double tank teams but her faction is full of strong competitors, making it hard to justify adding her to the wishlist early on.
[viperian]An AoE-focused damage dealer who can often one-shot the whole enemy team and drain their energy, winning the Ultimate race. He fits perfectly into the Graveborn core with Thoran and Cecia.
[valen]Excels early in the game by single-handedly wiping enemy teams, but his performance drops off drastically once you reach the midgame as his burst damage isn’t enough anymore.
[reinier]The best C/H character that works well even with just a single copy. He can switch positions between ally and enemy, disrupting the backline and excelling as a Dream Realm debuffer once his EX weapon is unlocked.
[odie]One of the best A-level damage dealers in both PVE and PVP. Odie’s combination of Poison, the ability to instantly kill enemies on low HP, and massive energy recovery upon killing an enemy makes him a formidable opponent.
[lyca]A versatile character who can deal decent AoE damage, buff allies, and debuff enemies simultaneously. She pairs well with other AoE characters to quickly nuke the enemy team.
[korin]One of the best Dream Realm damage dealers once he unlocks his EX weapon. Even before that, he is successful in the story and other PVE content, thanks to his ability to protect the weakest ally with a shield and his constant CC. He is often found in teams with the lowest power who have managed to clear a stage.
[hewynn]The best healer in the game, whose healing can affect the entire battlefield. She easily fits into any composition and becomes stronger once her EX weapon is unlocked, allowing her to reduce the damage her allies take. Early on, pairing her with another support is beneficial due to her slow Ultimate charge.
[bryon]A magic Ranger who can summon a Falcon and focuses on debuffing enemies while killing them quickly. His EX weapon grants him the ability to revive once per battle.
[brutus]Known for his immortality skill, Brutus buys a few crucial seconds for his team, but he struggles to survive post-immortality. His ability to reduce the enemies’ PDEF is also less effective than what other characters offer.
[walker]A damage dealer who focuses on CC. His damage is average, but he compensates for it with excellent crowd-control abilities, making him ideal for dealing with troublesome casters.
[vala]A unique damage dealer with two forms: one for sniping the enemy backline with her rifle, and another for jumping to the backline to stab and stun them. Her ability to deal with the backline is crucial for bypassing solid frontlines, and her EX weapon, which grants invisibility, significantly improves her survivability.
[temesia]A unique character who fights mounted and ignores walls, making her a menace in both the story to disrupt enemy formations and in the Dream Realm where her damage is also decent. While initially annoying in PvP, her performance there drops later on.
[silvina]An Assassin who instantly jumps to the enemy backline at the start of the battle. Without sufficient investment in her dupes, this often results in her quick death. However, her EX weapon significantly enhances her survivability, making her a formidable presence in both PvE and PvP.
[shakir]A bruiser who can deal good damage and support nearby allies simultaneously. Shakir excels in both PvE and PvP, serving as a core member of any Mauler-based team.
[scarlita]Starts the battle by supporting from the air with shields, then descends to deal massive damage. Much of her power is locked behind her EX weapon and skill enhancements, making her early performance underwhelming.
[rhys]Moves across the battlefield on his bird, delivering a mix of single-target and AoE attacks. His specialization in both areas leads to only moderate effectiveness in either.
[marilee]The top damage dealer in the Dream Realm but only average elsewhere. Her EX weapon upgrades her normal attacks to deal True Damage, enhancing her capabilities significantly.
[lucius]Starts as a strong tank but quickly transitions to an off-tank/shield role as he is overshadowed by other tanks in terms of solo tanking capability.
[igor]A persistent nuisance in both PvE and PvP, Igor’s mobility and survivability allow him to cheat death while chipping away at your team’s HP. He remains a threat even after a pre-release nerf.
[granny]A solid tank who sometimes outperforms Thoran in certain teams. Granny combines tanking with enemy debuffing, CC, and self-healing to outlast opposing teams.
[dionel]While Dionel has high damage output, he needs multiple buffers to fully utilize his kit, making his development slower. Once properly supported, his damage potential is tremendous.
[seth]Initially fragile, Seth can eventually wipe teams by himself with significant damage and self-healing capabilities. He is versatile for both PvE and PvP, though not the best in any area.
[satrana]A damage dealer and buffer hybrid, Satrana reduces healing received by enemies attacked by her allies. Her melee squishiness, however, limits her survivability.
[parisa]A damage dealer and buffer reliant on enemy formations for effectiveness. Without favorable conditions, her effectiveness diminishes.
[niru]A unique support capable of healing and granting temporary immortality, Niru shines in PvE with proper combos. His full potential unlocks with his EX weapon, crucial for consistent performance.
[mirael]A pyromancer whose aspirations exceed her abilities. Mirael’s damage is lacking, and she offers no utility to compensate, making her less viable.
[kafra]Specializes in supporting melee teams by healing allies close to him and debuffing enemies. Kafra’s niche role requires a specific team composition to truly shine, blending healing with crowd control and defense reduction.
[fay]A support who attempts both healing and buffing but excels at neither, making her less effective than other specialized supports.
[eironn]Eironn transforms once he unlocks his EX weapon, gathering enemies for powerful combos. He is essential to the current strongest PvP team alongside Carolina and Arden and is effective in PvE.
[damian]Damian becomes a top PvP character with his EX weapon by hastening his team, allowing quicker ultimate attacks and winning the Ultimate race.
[cassadee]An AoE-focused mage who thrives in magical teams by buffing allies and reducing enemy MDEF, making her highly effective in the Dream Realm.
[carolina]Specializes in debuffing and CC, Carolina becomes essential in late-game setups, particularly alongside other CC characters in the Eironn meta team.
[berial]An Assassin who excels against isolated targets but struggles against grouped enemies. Despite focusing on single-target damage, he is less effective against bosses.
[arden]A late-bloomer whose damage output spikes when paired with CC-using characters. Part of the Eironn meta comp, he excels with the right team setup.
[salazer]Targets the highest HP enemy, typically the tank, but lacks the burst needed to effectively defeat sturdy opponents.
[lumont]Appears strong with his array of shields, debuffs, and CC, but struggles with survivability, remaining less effective compared to other tanks even with heavy investment.
[kruger]The premier PDEF debuffer for the Dream Realm, essential for lowering boss defenses. While his debuff is permanent and needs only a single application to be effective, his use outside of Dream Realm is limited.
[atalanta]Outperformed by even lower rarity characters, Atalanta lacks both damage output and utility, making her an unwise investment for most team compositions.
