Raid: Shadow Legends Tier List

In Raid: Shadow Legends, players go on an epic journey to rid the land of scourge and save the realm. In your quest, you will be amassing Champions for your army. While all these Champions are battle-ready, there are those that stand above others in terms of strength in battle.

This tier list will serve as a ranking guide to the game’s almost 400 Champions. The rankings here are consistent with the game’s current meta so it will be helpful for experienced and beginner players alike.

Understanding The System Properly

In order to succeed in battles, you must attune yourself to Raid: Shadow Legends’ affinities. There are four in total, with each offering unique advantages and disadvantages.

AffinityStrong AgainstWeak To
MagicSpiritStrength
SpiritStrengthMagic
StrengthMagicSpirit
VoidNoneNone

In addition to affinities, Champions also operate under a specific role they play in, namely:

  • Attack – These are your DPS units that can deal massive damage to enemies
  • Defense – These units buff your party. They have high utility in battle
  • HP – These are your tank units which are good for sponging damage off enemies so your attackers can move freely
  • Support – They focus on healing and supporting your party’s survivability

The tier list will include columns that contain this information. When building your roster, it’s important to take note of them in conjunction with the unit’s ranking for the best results.

There Are Separate Tier Lists Per Rarity Group

Raid: Shadow Legends puts emphasis on diversification across rarity groups. As such, it’s only fitting that we have separate tier lists for legendary, epic, and rare Champions.

With all that aside, let’s dive right into our Raid: Shadow Legends’ latest tier list.

S-Tier (Legendary)

These are the best Champions you can have with the game as it is. You’ll ultimately consider yourself lucky once you have them because the payoff is immense.

A-Tier (Legendary)

Don’t skip A-tiers just because they’re not at the top of the game right now. They have minor flaws, but that doesn’t deter from their huge upsides.

C-Tier (Legendary)

These Champions are decent at best and are good complements to your overall party. If you have higher-tiered units, it’s advised to not invest too much on these.

F-Tier (Rare)

All other Champions fall under the bottom tier. With so many units available in Raid: Shadow Legends, there are bound to be several that should have no business being in your party rotation.

And that should be it for the tier list. This may not be a perfect list (making one is impossible), but this would help guide you through your journey through the game. Make sure to master the gameplay elements and assert whether the champions you have are worth keeping.
