*Characters in the same tier are all considered equal.

*With the exception of Trailblazer whose Eidolons are free, all characters are rated based on their status with no Eidolons (C0).

Editor CommentsThere aren't many characters at this point so there are no similar characters that are better or worse than the other. They each have their own advantage depending on their Element and Path (Role). Any character can become powerful with a good build so we recommend to try and use the characters you have and like the most.
