Evaluation Criterion for Tier List

Focus on Individual Strengths and Stats

We focused on individual strengths and stat distributiuon to rank Heroes. By individual strengths, we are referring to the strength of things like exclusive weapons and exclusive skills. We created this ranking by choosing the Heroes who have a good distribution of stats, with weapon and movement type also taken into consideration.

Taking Inherit Skill and Weapon Refinery into Consideration

The assumption that Inherit Skill will be used and that Weapon Refinery is a possibility were also reflected in the ranking. For a ranking that does not take Inherit Skill into account, please see the article on Reroll Ranking.

Hero Enhancement Through Merge Allies was Excluded

Heroes with +10 merges were not factored into the ranking. Any Hero with +10 merges will work well in various situations, so the ranking was made assuming zero merges.
