The Alchemist Code Tier List

Get an overview of the best units in The Alchemist Code with a tier list. We have created the ultimate The Alchemist Code tier list for that purpose.

The Alchemist Code is a deep strategy RPG that rewards precise tactics both on and off the battlefield.

The battles in the game are nerve-wracking, but success at the highest level does not end there. To conquer the game’s toughest challenges, you must also be able to leverage your team’s unique combination of elements and jobs.

With such a wide roster of characters, it can be overwhelming for the average player to form their dream team. To help with this, we’ve made a tier list that ranks the individual prowess of every unit from best to worst.

With this as your guide, you’ll have a firm understanding of the game’s current meta then build your team around that. Let’s get right to it.
