Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Tier List

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, or FFBE, is a product of a highly successful collaboration between the developer, Alim, and publisher, Square Enix. The merge of both parties is evident as soon as you boot up the game. Its world, lore, and character design are inspired by Final Fantasy’s RPG tropes. The gameplay, on the other hand, stems from Brave Frontier (Alim’s first game) well-balanced gacha mechanics.

The partnership resulted in a fantastic RPG with a good story, interesting exploration mechanics, and the ever-addictive rush of collecting iconic units to aid you in your journey.

Why A Tier List Is Needed

You’ll likely obtain upwards of a hundred units throughout your playthrough in FFBE, and it will be a chore to prioritize who to raise. To aid you in this task, we’ve ranked all units in the game according to how useful/strong they’ll be in the long run.

This list should not be taken as a limiting document that dictates who you should or should not use. Instead, this list will give you a glimpse of how the different units stack up against the rest of the cast. With this guidance, you’ll be able to plan more effectively which ones you’ll invest time and resources in for the end game.

Note: Since we’re preparing for the end game content, only units that can max at a 7-star rating will be included in this list. There’s a big gap between 6 and 7-star units in Brave Exvius, so the best units are composed mostly of 7-stars.

S-Tier

These are characters you’d want to grow and keep as soon as you get them. Their stats don’t cap quickly so you’ll get much use of them for a longer time.

They also have the best skills in the game that are well-placed within their chaining family.

These are your “budget” units. Easy to acquire and easy to maintain. With the game’s current setup, you could do far better, especially if you’re thinking of the end game.

You can use these units in the early to mid-game but drop them right away when better ones come along.

There are more units in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius that are not included in this list simply because they are weaker than the others. If a unit does not appear in this list, then it’s safe to assume that they would have poor stat growths and weak utility for use in the end game.
