Raid: Shadow Legends Tier List (Apr, 2021)

Raid Shadow Legends Tier List

In this article, we have created Raid: Shadow Legends Tier List according to their power and usefulness.

There can be so many games that are considered top in a certain category. When it comes to gacha games this game is Raid: Shadow Legends. With an amazingly big cast of characters to choose from, you have the ability to take part in an epic adventure that will take you through levels that you never thought you would care about.

Be careful though, that this game is not as easy as it may look with its friendly game design. There are a lot of obstacles that many people have failed to overcome. Many bosses seem impossible to beat if you don’t have the right characters on your team. This is why we created a tier list to show you which are the characters you should be looking for in the game, and which ones are there just to look pretty and do nothing else.

Let’s get straight into the list.

Raid Shadow Legends Tier List


There is not a lot of things that you need to consider when you find a character from this list. They are the crème de la crème that is capable of making even the most difficult stages look like a piece of cake. The most powerful clans have players with teams full of these characters. But let’s keep our expectations low, even one of them should work to start with.

Who is the best character in Raid: Shadow Legends?


At the current state of the game, Arbiter is the character that everyone is looking for. She is a legendary support Void affinity champion from the High Elves faction. Her ability to revive is by itself enough to define the whole combat, but if you add to this the buffs she provides to her teammates and the fact that her attacks apply weakening to the enemy, then you can understand that she is not just your average champion.

  • Arbiter
  • Duchess Lilitu
  • Bad-el-Kazar
  • Lyssandra

  • Big ‘Un
  • Venus

Raid Shadow Legends Tier List: A-Tier

The characters on this list might not be as overpowered as the ones in the S-Tier, but they can definitely fit most team compositions nicely. If you take into account, how hard it is to get most of the S-Tier champions, then you see the necessity to have some A-Tier in your rooster. Even just a team full of champions from this list is enough to finish the game and even rank well in the Arena. It all depends on how you combine them together.

Raid Shadow Legends Tier List: B-Tier

If the worst thing that could happen to you in the game is to only find B-Tier characters, then you are not that unlucky. There are so many champions in the game that even the ones that we consider B-Tier are much higher than the average. That being said, for us, the best use of these characters is as a stepping stone to get to the ones that are really going to make our life easy. It just takes a lot of time to get higher than B-Tier.

  • Trunda Giltmallet
  • Black Knight
  • Grohak the Bloodied
  • Lord Shazar
  • Astralith
  • Lugan the Steadfast
  • Crypt-King Graal
  • Lanakis the Chosen
  • Visix the Unbowed
  • Richtoff the Bold
  • Hegemon
  • War Mother
  • Suzerain Katonn
  • Elder Skrag
  • Tyrant Ixlimor

Raid Shadow Legends Tier List: C-Tier

Even though the ones that we thought deserved to be on this list are legendary, amongst them there are the characters that you would call average. Keep in mind that you will not see the incredible results you can see with the characters higher on this list, so if you are going for mastery of the game, you can use these characters as place-holders in your team until you find the idea champion that fits your synergy nicely.

  • Teela Goremane
  • Tormin the Cold
  • Basileus Roanas
  • Elenaril
  • Queen Eva
  • Gurgoh the Augur
  • Lord Champfort
  • Tomb Lord
  • Shirimani
  • Errol
  • Norog
  • Hakkorhn Smashlord
  • Ignatius
  • Ithos

Raid Shadow Legends Tier List: D-Tier

As you might expect, the bottom of the list has the champions that could use a little bit of buffing if they want to be considered useful. There have been many cases where people find that they got a legendary champion and then are disappointed that they are not doing as much as they were expecting. That summarizes this tier, characters that could work in theory, but in reality, don’t even deserve to be called legendary.

  • Candraphon
  • Mortu-Macaab
  • Gurptuk Moss-Beard
  • Bystophus
  • Mountain King
  • Skull Lord Var-Gall
  • Vizier Ovelis
  • Warchief
  • Wurlim Frostking
  • Yannica


Raid: Shadow legends is a game by Plarium that has a lot of fun to offer but at the same time, it requires a lot of time investment to understand the synergies between the characters and which direction you want to go with your gameplay. If you are looking for a casual playthrough of the game, then this list will be kinda useless for you. On the other hand, if you want to get to the top of the charts with your amazing team, then check every character you get with this list to make sure you are choosing the champions that have the best potential.
