Best Heroes in Top War – Tier List

topwar battle game best heroes tier list with yuu

There are load of heroes in Top War and I bet you’re not sure what hero you should spend your books and universal shards on, right?

Well, it can be really tough to prioritize the heroes when it comes to their versatility so I did that for you. Below you will find my tier list where I ranked all heroes based on their stats, their rarity, how strong their skill is and some more factors to give you a good indication what heroes are worth leveling and staring up in Top War and which ones not that much.

Please mind! I have reworked this list completely as new heros and meta shifts have changes so much in Top War in the past months. Upcoming! In the next updates I will give more attention to hero pairing recommendations and hidden skills as well

Best Heroes Tier List

Alright, before we jump right into the list I want to give some short annotations:

  • This list is based on my personal opinion as well as on stats, so rather take this list as indication and not as a fool-proof priority list you should work through from top to bottom.
  • Rarity matters a lot in Top War because SSR rarity heroes can simply take more units into battle, that’s a huge advantage. Also SSR heroes have a lot better stats overall.
  • below the table you find some further information for the heroes, most about their skill and versatility overall. Doing that inside the table would have created a mess.

Then let’s just jump into the tier list of heroes:

    • brother, i don’t speak english and i’m using the translator… do you think the Bumblebee that bad? With me he is better than Rambo (when compared using the 2).

  1. I actually think you have a lot of decent info here. You fail to mention a few important things… first of all what the letters mean. What is S? Superior? Is E excellent? I can guess ABC. Also I feel like you must not own Amalia… I wonder if you realize she’s more than just for dropping boxes. 🤔.
