Idle Heroes Best Heroes Tier List (August 2023) – with Doppelganger Natalia

Maxing out a hero in Idle Heroes is a long process and you only want to contribute that effort for the best heroes that are worth it in the long ring, right? We have developed a tier list here that will show you how viable and useful a hero is in Idle Heroes, both PvE (all the different game modes) and PvP.

The viability of a hero in PvE most circles around maximizing the damage you will deal with 3-4 damage dealers in your team and 2-3 support heroes that will boost the damage of your damage dealers by break/reduce armor as well as adding burn/bleed synergy and survivability.

In PvP there’s more a focus on disruption and preventing active skills of the enemy team as you want to shut them down as effectively as you can. Also support heroes that will help your team to stay alive effectively are rated high in the PvP section of the tier list.

The total rating is a mix of PvP and PvE and you will also find some additional ratings how a hero performs in the different PvE game modes to help you make your decisions.

Important! Also don’t miss checking out my frequently updated list of active gift codes here, normally you will find at least one active code here that will give you extra Gems and Summon Scrolls that are handy in working on your heroes.

And a last note before we get into the list, if you’re not sure what monsters are worth running as pets, check out my updated ranking here.

Regular Heroes

Here are the regular heroes that are relevant for end-game in Idle Heroes ranked

eloise
Eloise
A
Eloise is one of the best solo Seal Land hero, one of the best E5 heroes to build first and you will use her from first day to end game. Also viable for the newer PvE game modes..
holmes young
Holmes Young
A
Holmes Young is ranked higher than the transcendence one?! Yes, because he can do so great in Seal Land 20 as he is a real damage dealer while Star Alchemist Holmes Young turns more into some crowd control type of her..
drake
Drake
A
Drake gained a lot value recently. and will bump out insane damage numbers, synergizes well with Sword Flash Xia, has great dodge and performs great in PvP as well. Rating now lower due to Star Expedition and Aspen Dungeon Purgatory where he does not perform that well..
rogan
Rogan
A
Rogan is one of the best support heroes with the beginning buffs and is useful in almost any game mode. Assassins are getting more and more powerful in the current meta so he deserves this tier for sure. Rating now lower due to Star Expedition and Aspen Dungeon Purgatory where he does not perform that well..
tix
Tix
B+
Tix is really hard to rank. In the current snapshot of Idle Heroes when only looking at the latest versions of all game modes, Tix is not that great anymore and for that reason I dropped him in tiers in the previous updates of the tier list already. Still, one of the craziest early-game heroes and long-term heroes in Idle Hero..
sherlock
Sherlock
B+
Sherlock is making a comeback in PvE meta and can solo Seal Land 25 and I believe he will be a hero you want to have in your account for a long time to come..
penny
Penny
B+
Penny is a very solid PvE damage and can do Aspen Dungeon Death 100 on her own and solo Seal Land 20 and annihilates in the early game big time. Still, needed to rank her lower now compared to other heroes as she drops off quite fast compared to them nowadays..
carrie
Carrie
B+
Carrie is somewhat useful in most game modes and a good support hero. Great anti-energy tool. Has been rising in tiers in recent updates on my list but she's not that viable now that she once was with the way her revives work now so I ranked her a little lower. Still a relevant hero for PvP..
xiahou
Xiahou
B+
Xiahou has to be always used as 2x in your team, never run only one in your team or this rating here is not correct!.
waldeck
Waldeck
B+
Waldeck can do Seal Land 20 done and okay synergy in end-game PvP meta right now but lacks other PvE uses..
freya
Freya
B
Freya in the normal version has some versatilities and I wouldn't call her bad at all but nothing where she really sticks out..
elyvia
Elyvia
B
Elyvia with her aura and shrink is helpful as 5-Star support but really only late-game use is Tower and Seal Land 21+..
aspen
Aspen
B
Aspen works great for Seal Land with enough support and good in Aspen Dungeon. Solid mid-game hero overall..
eos
Eos
B
Eos is super average everywhere with no real mode where Eos is shining..
amen--ra
Amen--Ra
B
Amen-Ra is a really nice support hero and always comes into meta setups with her Guardian Shadows and Healing Curse are super strong. I think she'll be having some relevance in the coming years in Idle Heroes..
inosuke
Inosuke
B
Inosuke is a good PvE damage dealer and solo Seal Land 20 hero, but the main reason I have him up in this tier again is that he's really mandatory for the Tenant Spot on Sword Flash Xia..
russell
Russell
B
Russell is a Good early-game hero and a hero you will really find useful when you start and very good PvE with decent PvP abilities mid-game in Idle Heroes. Unfortunately, and that's the reason I ranked him lower, is that he falls off late game pretty hard and is less versatile than other heroes when looking at the long-term perspective. Still useful to build if you're not 12+ months into the game..
vulcan
Vulcan
B
Pretty much Russel 2.0 and clear Seal Land 20 and then only use for transendence version..
garuda
Garuda
B
Garuda can do Seal Land 20 all by herself with imprints, good early PvP but not that good later. Overall good PvE damage dealer. Unfortunately, she falls off later in the game quite a bit..
aida
Aida
B
Aida is good for Aspen Dungeon and Tower but not viable somewhere else. For that reason, I also adjusted her tier a little lower in the recent update..
ithaqua
Ithaqua
B
Ithaqua is, although the best PvE damage dealer and useful, there are better Shadow Faction alternative heroes that are just more viable in multiple game modes so I needed to rank Ithaqua lower..
delacium
Delacium
B
Delacium is great as 5-Star hero and can clear Void Vortex great and also Seal Land 20 by himself. Paired with Ithaqua good PvE damage dealer but you need to run multiple of him. Hard to rank but I'm okay with this ranking here..
aylamax
Aylamax
B
Aylamac has potential but with one very bad downside - when he recieves cc, he loses all damage and survivability from not counter attacking and becomes pretty much worthless.
ignis
Ignis
C+
Ignis Great for Seal Land 21-30 pushes even at 9- or 10-Star for your main carry and E5 for Seal Land 25 pushes. Also viable in Vortex..
andrea
Andrea
C+
Andrea Good support hero and good in what he does. The problem is that this is not needed in every game mode so I ranked him a little lower compared to his previous position. Good in PvP..
morax
Morax
C+
Morax is pretty okay everywhere but doesn't shine anywhere, I think this describes him well enough. Still Seal Land 20 no problem for him..
natasha
Natasha
C+
Natasha deals pretty good damage but after having her in the game for quite some time I don't see her shine anywhere big-time tbh..
flora
Flora
C+
Flora is basically okay everywhere but good in Aspen Dungeon getting to Death 100. Can do solo Seal Land but requires a ton of investment in imprinting. Decent cc..
unimax-3000
Unimax-3000
C+
Unimax-3000 not outstanding and okay in Tower. Okay utility support hero..
faith blade
Faith Blade
C+
Faith Blade used to be really strong but has been falling off. Can get you through Aspen Dungeon Death 100 and also Seal Land 20 is possible with upgraded staff but is squishy like crazy.
fiona
Fiona
C+
Fiona is a solid support hero and useful in all cheese setups but as Inosuke, her mechanics got changed so her shields are not that strong anymore. Still okay PvE damage and a tenant for Sword Flash Xia..
gloria
Gloria
C+
Gloria has some viability but actually nothing where she stands out. Still, her cc is good and her damage is solid..
cthuga
Cthuga
C
Cthuga is good at clearing Seal Land 20 and Aspen Dungeon. Not useful later in Idle Heroes..
horus
Horus
C
Horus is good earlier and mid-game of Idle Heroes and can do Seal Land 20 quite well and is a solid PvE damage dealer and also can do some tanking. Falls off later in the game more and more compared to other heroes so I also lowered his tier..
phorcys
Phorcys
C
Phorcys can do solo Seal Land 25 but outside of that there's not much about him. Used to be nice at removing buffs and doing great damage and viable in PvP, but he's super squishy to play and there are so much more useful in Idle Heroes and for that reason now here low on the tier list.
aranea
Aranea
C
Pretty much the early access for introducing her transendence version, don't mind too much here.
onkirimaru
Onkirimaru
C
Onkirimaru has a weird revive with the requisite not hitting often, not recommend investing much..
azrael
Azrael
C
Pretty much the early access for introducing his transendence version, don't mind too much here. A little Onikirimaru/Carrie vibe here.....
mockman
Mockman
C
.
geester
Geester
C
Probably one of the weakest E5 heroes and while the Awakened Geester dominates, the regular is just lackluster all the way.
kroos
Kroos
C
Kroos is actually kind of solid in some cases. Cool stun, useful in early/mid game in Idle Heroes PvP..
nakia
Nakia
C
Nakia with her slow ability, not good at Tower, Seal Land or Aspen Dungeon and not much damage, potentially can do Seal Land 20 with the right setup and artifacts..
saja
Saja
D+
Saja has stun capabilities but I haven't found one thing that she's good at..
tara
Tara
D+
Tara can now get Seal Land 20 done with enough imprints and seals can be somewhat powerful. Anyway, still not a hero you want to give much attention to..
jahra
Jahra
D+
Jahra is, unlike her Transcendence version, absolutely not worth building..
xia
Xia
D+
Xia is not really good at anything, medium damage, not great support but can do Seal Land 20 and useful for conversion later.
oberon
Oberon
D+
Oberon is useless in PvP and squishy crowd control abilities you can't rely on. You can, theoretically, use him in Aspen Dungeon but there are so many other options....
valentino
Valentino
D+
Valentino can have some rare niche uses in PvP or in Vortex but you have so many other options there so don't mind him right now..
annabelle
Annabelle
D+
Annabelle is a Good supporter for Seal Land and not specifically bad but also not needed..
tussilago
Tussilago
D+
Tussilago is really bad in PvP and not good in PvE either. Don't touch her. Can't think of any more disappointing hero released in Idle Heroes or any other game..
king barton
King Barton
D+
King Barton is just not relevant anymore..
amuvor
Amuvor
D+
Amuvor is, sorry to say it like that, absolutely awful..
gustin
Gustin
D+
Gustin is nice support with removing debuffs and can do crazy things with multiple Gustin setups in PvP. Can do Seal Land 25 in a multi-setup but not a huge fan of that..
belrain
Belrain
D+
Belrain used to be really strong but falls off more and more with each update of the list. She has been useful in Seal Land 25 pushes but right now there are so much better options support-wise that I really can't recommend her right now. Not worth any invest..
michelle
Michelle
D+
Michelle has some uses with stuns and revives and healing/support..
heart watcher
Heart Watcher
D+
Heart Watcher doesn't have Void Imprints but you want to use her in the early/mid-game and even at the beginning of the end-game you'll appreciate her but in the long run not the hero you will be using too much in Idle Heroes..
mihm
Mihm
D+
Mihm was useful in Mihm-Cheese setups but nobody uses that anymore for obvious reasons so she's basically useless right now..

Conclusion

Well, that’s the current tier list for Idle Heroes as I see it but, of course, some positioning are debatable. I’d love to discuss in the comments but before you drop angry comments, please mind that the positioning is not just on the different game modes and the ranking inside a tier is not that crazy different when it comes to the priority they heroes have.

  4. Error:
    the description for SQH is missing.
    (the description for SFX is used for both SFX and SQH)

    1. You’re not missing much. Presently, I’d probably place Ormus at “C” for overall PVE and “D” for overall PVP

    1. Fat Mu would probably be an “E” or “F” for both PVE and PVP

      (not fast food….but moreso perhaps gourmet food…he’s definitely food though)

  5. Really useful information! Thank you for publishing this, I’m hoping it will help my game a lot! Just curious, Valk not even making the list anymore? She used to be top tier, I know she’s not that great anymore but damn lol

    1. You’re not missing out. Most current tier lists don’t include Valkyrie anymore, however, I have seen her on 3 lists today. They each rated her as “C”.

  6. Thank you for this tier list. It is really informative and is helping to build a good team from the beginning. I’ve only just now built my first E5 Inosuke so I’m planning my second.

  7. The heroes mentioned are elite heroes only – anything less than that is not worth mentioning because you really should not be using them.

  8. Nice list!

    one small error though: Belrain is listed twice one rates her as “C+” the other rates her as “C”.
