Tier List Evaluation Criteria

  • DPS (Damage Output) is the Highest Priority
  • Versatile Characters
  • Characters with Less Need For Resonance Chains
  • Easy to Use and Control

DPS (Damage Output) is the Highest Priority

The most basic strategy in combat is to dodge attacks at the right time. The higher the firepower, the faster the combat ends, which means being able to deal lots of damage will give you a better chance. In addition, there are also challenges that have a time limit.

Increase The DMG Of Party

Characters like Jiyan can fight alone well enough, but others like Mortefi and Verina can enhance or deal additional damage for the whole team which is also an important advantage to consider.

Versatile Characters

Characters that can easily fit into any team or can take different roles in the team can also be valuable. Characters that rely on the Element type or are only good at specific roles may be difficult to use thus rated lower.

Characters with Less Need For Resonance Chains

Characters with the highest stats are basically all considered high tier, but if multiple characters have similar features the ones with less need for Resonance Chains are considered more valuable in this list.

Easy to Use and Control

This game requires some skill to control the characters in battle, so we also slightly considered whether or not the characters are easy to use. Characters that are easy to control and use have an advantage there.
