Just got stuck into the latest Summoners War and not sure which characters to use? Our Summoners War: Chronicles tier list is here to help you. In this guide, we rank all of the characters from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier. We even keep it updated, alongside balance patches and new character introductions, so we recommend bookmarking this page and checking back frequently. That way, you’ll always have the absolute best team.

Summoners War: Chronicles is the latest entry in the long-running mobile series. This one introduces MMORPG mechanics into the game, with you selecting from three different playable characters. You then explore a wide open world, collecting additional characters that you can summon to fight alongside you. So, not too dissimilar to the other games then.

You can learn more about it on the official site. If you’re a fan of games like this, we’ve got plenty more where this came from. Make sure to check out our Noah’s Heart tier list, Tower of Fantasy tier list, and Zenless Zone Zero tier list.

Summoners War: Chronicles Tier List

Here, we’ll rank all of the characters from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier. That will help you put together the best team. Or, at least we will. Summoners War: Chronicles has just launched, so we’re still putting together notes on the best characters. Bookmark this page and check back soon.

Tiers Explained

Before we move onto the tier list though, we thought we’d quickly explain what our tiers mean:

  • S Tier: These are the best characters currently available in the game, and you should definitely aim to add them to your party. They should also be the first choice to level up and gain access to equipment.
  • A Tier: These characters are perfect for filling gaps in a party – particularly when you haven’t unlocked enough S tiers, or there aren’t enough S tiers to fill a party in the first place. You should investigate these characters and see which one will counter your party’s weakness.
  • B Tier: Characters in this tier can really help during the early phases of the game, when you haven’t unlocked many characters, but they fade later on. Definitely use them when you lack S and A characters, but swap them out as much as possible.
  • C Tier: The only real difference between C and D tier is that C tier characters can occasionally have niche uses. They may be great at a particular game mode, or be exceptionally powerful early on. A late-game party shouldn’t have any though.
  • D Tier: We don’t recommend using these characters under any circumstance, unless you absolutely have to because you have nothing else. They underperform at all stages of the game, and in all game modes.

Summoners War: Chronicles Tier List FAQ

Now that you’re familiar with our two tier lists, here’s a bunch of questions you might have about Summoners War: Chronicles or tier lists answered.

What Is A Tier List?

A tier list is a list of characters that you can unlock in a game – particularly a gacha game – ordered from best to worst. We rank from S tier to D tier, with S being best and D being worst.

The purpose of a tier list is to help you, the player, determine who the best characters to unlock are, so you can save time and money. Once you know who the best characters are, you can form a party out of them and ignore the others.

How Did We Pick Our Summoners War: Chronicles Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Memento Mori tier list:

  • Personal experience
  • Community feedback
  • General consensus from other tier lists

However, it’s worth noting that tier lists are subjective by nature. This is based on our experience with the game, but yours may vary. So, we recommend that you take this with a pinch of salt and play Summoners War: Chronicles tier list for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Summoners War: Chronicles Tier List?

We update this tier list regularly to ensure that it always follows the latest meta. Typically, you can expect an update around the following happenings:

  • A new character releases
  • Balance changes

There may be a small delay between the above two events as we’ll return to the game to check out the new character for ourselves, or to see how the balance patches have affected things.
