Best Heroes in SOULS (Tier List) – with Elara & Kyle

With many different heroes available in SOULS, Habby has created a very interesting gacha roaster of heroes and you have a lot of tough decisions to make which heroes you will spend your time and resources on to develop.

I have created a tier list that I frequently update to show you which heroes are good all the time, which ones will be good toward the end-game, and which ones carry in the earlier stages of SOULS.

Update! I was lucky with pulling unnormal Elara copies so I was able to really test her early, so you find her added below so quickly.

What Are The Best Heroes in SOULS?

Alright, below you will find the full list that I frequently update that will show you which heroes are good and shich ones rather mediocre. Please mind, if you use the ‘Show More’ button you will see the individual rating based on the different Chapters as some heroes perform really strong early in SOULS and then fall off and some are rather lowballing at the beginning and pick up in later Chapters.

New! Please check out my new team builder for SOULS here + the best setups for Cave of Abyss here. Also, if you enjoy SOULS, you might be interested in AFK 2: Journey which I enjoy playing a lot.

Kyle
S+
He stuns the backrow, he heals himself, he scales his damage up and reduce damage taken based how much HP he has left. The only thing bad you can say about him is that he is selfish in terms of not providing anything for the team but by himself he is the full package of damage, sustain and control. I mishgt adjust his rankings a bit at a later stage but I feel quite comfortable that this is about the region he will be finally ranked in..

Nice chaining attack that also can add damage over time to chip backline enemies. He needs his full kit to work the way he does, so don't get frustrated that he really struggles in the earlier chapters simply as you don't have the important passives unlocked..

Deals some damage, debuffs enemies with her Dazzling Debuff (espcially the enemy with the highest attack) and can potentially stun enemies and reduce their energy. Valuable for certain modes and stages where you need to control certain enemies but not an overall op hero.

The bleeding makes Telfer a good damage dealer in SOULS; but sometimes you just need burst and the full potential remains lackluster. In the earlier tages not a great hero as fights won't last long enough to really make the damage over time happen..

Ally buffer and some healing. Doesn't pop too wild and weirdly enough I only made her work well in the medium chapters in SOULS and she is not that great in the beginning as her role is simply not needed and towards end-game her abilities are not strong enough anymore..

Void

Deals damage and part of that heals which can be a great passive healing while he still deals good damage. More valuable in later chapters as in the earlier stages of SOULS he lacks damage and can't heal by himself and becomes more valuable when you have to run two healers in your team later in the game..

Can enable your carry by provoding energy and strike in a line to chip backrow but unless you're up against a setup where you run a lot of abckrow-chipping heroes and need to get rid of a certain backrow hero.. I don't see too much reason to run Calix..

Rakan

Where should I start here? A tankthat shields himself based on the damage dealt is bad as the shield is just very weak. Gain more attack when HP is low, well a tank should become more sturdy with lower HP to give healers enough time to heal him up. And apply silence when dying?! Unless you're really close you don't see an impact here once your tank is down. Just the whole kit is not there and useful..

The stun and the emergency healing is great, but he is more an extra healer if you need to keep up some frontline (espcially something you have to do in later chapters). Earlier in SOULS you rather want a healer that targets the full team and not just the single hero that needs it most but in later chapters a single healer often enough can't keep your team alive and having this emergency healer is really important..

Several flaws- Her targeting and debuffing of the enemy with the highest ATK sounds great and providing energy when dying useful - but the damage is simply not there and she dies too often and fast for the energy she provides so I rather have an hero in my team that stays alive long enough to really make a difference.

Just not that useful. Why would you need to tank frontrow? There is nothing in his kit that is particularly useful and his only reason is being a meatshield and that is nothing he does too well with his base stats. Overall not a hero I recommend running..

Conclusion

I hope this list here helped you to see which heroes are worth building in the long run in SOULS and which ones you will replace at one point. If you have annotations or questions, please use the comment section below.

  1. I started this game a week ago and got carmen, she is insane, and your tier list is helpful, I always watch it if I forget what tier the character are.

  2. I’m sorry, but I’m quite confused with the ranking of the heroes because it is quite inconsistent. Take Coco for example, in this list she is ranked as “S”. But when you click the “Best build for Coco”, she’s demoted to “A” rank. Can anyone please explain?

      1. Blue heroes are not relevant and therefore not on the list. Use until you can replace him with a hero that is on the list without investing more than you have to building 🙂

  3. Any advice on blocking heals? Especially HoTs and taking also taking down shields. Seems like not a lot of debuffers / dispellers

  4. Hi 👋 this list is super useful! Do you think you could write an article on the best team to have? That would be really cool, thank you in advance.

  5. This is such a helpful list. Thank you! Also, if you would like there are a few grammatical errors that I’d love to help you fix if you’d be interested in my help. No pressure of course. This is definitely the best tier list out there for this game. Thank you for making it!
