Who do YOU think is the best unit?

Sing/Dance units are excluded from this poll. Due to the ever changing meta, we have replaced the poll with new units on 07/07/2021 and reset the number of ballots.

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.

    • How come we can't edit the page to add something if it's not there? I was trying to find Spring Saleh on the Sacred Stones characters list, and he's not listed there. If you won't update the pages as they go, would you please at least let those of us who can be able to add a page or something new to the pages missing info as the game FEH goes on?

    • >>[30] Oh okay! I personally think MB3 is better, but yeah that works too. Yes! You can raid your own Aether Keep. That's where I do most of my 'testing'.
