Idle Heroes Best Heroes Tier List (PvE & PvP) – March 2022

idle heroes best heroes tier list july 2021

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 (boss fights, Broken Spaces, Flame Shrine) 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. Please mind that you should check out what your focus is – if you don’t do PvP at all you only want to look at the PvE column and vice versa.

The Best Heroes In Idle Heroes

December Update! With a good bunch of changes since the last update I did to the list, quite some things changed in the meta and I adjusted t heroes according to this…

Arrows and next to a hero’s name now indicate his position in relation since the last update (normally update this list every 1-2 months), so you can see what direction a hero develops in

Hero Tier PvP

PvE

Aspen Dung. Void Vort. Seal Land Info
Sword Fish Xia S+ S+ +++ +++ +++ One of the top PvE solo damage dealer and strong with AoE, dodge, counterattacks etc. Can do Seal Land 25 and also top-notch viable in the other game modes. Should be your first transcendent hero to build!
S+
Scarlet Queen Halora S+ S+ +++ +++ +++ She’s all-in-one support hero and damage dealer and viable in all game modes. 2nd best behind Sword Fish Xia
S+
Fairy Queen Vesa S S +++ ++ +++ Well rounded hero and can hit like a truck. Shields, healing make her a complete package.
S
Rogan S A+ + + ++ One of the best support hero with the beginning buffs and useful in almost any game mode. Assassins are getting more and more powerful in the current meta so he deserves this hier tier for sure.
A
Eloise S S o o ++ 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
S
Drake S A + o + Got a lot value recently. and will bump out insane damage numbers, synergizes well with Sword Fish Xia, great dodge, super in PvE. Outstanding.
S+
Lord of Fear Aspen S A+ ++ ++ ++ Great pick to get you to Seal Land 25 in Dark and a lot of utility overall with a nice fear. Synergize well with Star Wing Jahra.
S
Sun Devourer Eos S S ++ + + Falls a little off at Seal Land 25+ but really shines when you have Melodic Strings on her and she really packs a punch and hits like a truck.
A+
Asmodel the Dauntless S A +++ + + Very good PvE damage dealer and also good PvP burst damage dealer. Crazy crits. But ranked him lower now and should be one of the later transcendence heroes to build.
 S
Star Wing Jahra A+ S ++ + Her cc gives your team a lot of viability and one of the best PvE damage dealer and useful for many PvP teams as well. She can lock down an entire team all the way if used right but you need a lot of actives on her to make that happen. Not great at Seal Land at all.
A
Ignis A+ A +
++ ++ Great for Seal Land 20 pushes even at 9- or 10-Star for your main carry and E5 for Seal Land 25 pushes and super viable in almost any game modes except maybe Aspen Dungeon and pure boss mode PvE content.
A
Amen-Ra

A+ 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 relevant for the coming years in Idle Heroes so I ranked her even higher now.
A+
Tix A+ A + + + 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 your account so A+ is a tier he deserves.
A
Ithaqua

A+ A ++ + ++ 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. I mean A+ is still a really good tier.
A+
Carrie

A A + ++ ++ Useful in most game modes and 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 you want to build.
S
Inosuke

A D+ + + ++ Good PvE damage dealer and solo Seal Land 25 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 Fish Xia.
A
Sherlock

A B + ++ 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.
C
Delacium A F o ++ ++ 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.
S
Andrea

A S + + + 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 in the A-Tier compared to his previous position. Good in PvP.
A
Fiona

B B + o o 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 good PvE damage. Ranked her now higher in the B-Tier since she’s a tenant for Sword Fish Xia.
B+
Waldeck B A o ++ Can do Seal Land 20 done and okay synergy in end-game PvP meta right now but lacks other PvE uses.
C
Aspen B C ++ ++ Great for Seal Land with enough support and good in Aspen Dungeon. Solid mid-game hero
B
Penny

B C ++ + Very solid PvE damage and can do Aspen Dungeon Death 100 on her own and solo Seal Land 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.
A+
Aida

B A+ + Great for Aspen Dungeon and PvP but not viable somewhere else. For that reason I also adjusted her tier a little lower in the recent update.
C
Russell

B 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.
S
Garuda B B+ + ++ Can do Seal Land 20 done 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.
B
Natasha

NEW

B C + + ++ Relatively new but looks like you can solo Seal Land 20 with her and is nice for a non-transcendence hero and does pretty good damage.
B
Morax B D + ++ Morax is pretty good everywhere but doesn’t shine anywhere, I think this describes him well enough. Still Seal Land 20 no problem for him, aspen Dungeon a little bit.
B
Heart Watcher B D + ++ 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. Only Broken Space 8/9 she will let you down. Okay in my opinion
A
Horus

C+ D ++ Is good earlier and mid-game but falls short in PvP. Can do Seal Land 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.
B+
Xia C C + Not really good at anything, medium damage, not great support but can do Seal Land 20 and useful for convertion later
C
Cthuga C D + ++ Good at clearing Seal Land, Aspen Dungeon and also decent in earlier PvP. Not useful later in the game.
C
Elyvia C C o + Her aura and shrink is helpful as 5-Star support but really only some niche uses.
C
Gloria C C o o o Has some viability but actually nothing where she stands out. Still, her cc is good and her damage is solid
C
Kroos C B+ o o o Actually kind of solid in some cases. Cool stun, useful in early/mid game in Idle Heroes but, unfortunately, not useful beyond that.
B
Annabelle

NEW

C C o o + Good supporter for Seal Land and not specifically bad but also not needed.
C
Xiahou

NEW

C C o o o Not specifically bad but not relevant in the current meta at all
C
Gustin D+ B o o o 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. Tend to rather rank him D Tier in the next update unless something really (unrealistic) drastic changes…
D
Onkirimaru D+ B Weird revive with the requesite not hitting often, not recommend investing much.
 D
Faith Blade D F + + Used to be really strong but has been falling off. Can get you through Aspen Dungeon, Death 100 and als Seal Land 20 is possible with upgraded staff but is squishy like crazy
C
Flora

D C + o o Basically okay everywhere but great in Aspen Dungeon getting to Death 100. Can do solo Seal Land but requires a ton of investment in imprinting. Decent cc.
C
Phorcys

D B + ++ 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 can die so fast that I ranked him lower now as the other heroes above are so much more useful in Idle Heroes…
D
Belrain

D D + Used to be really strong but falls 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.
B
Michelle D D o Has some uses with stuns and revives and healing/support.
F
Nakia D D o 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.
F
Unimax 3000 D D Not outstanding and okay PvP. Okay utility support hero
C
Tara F F o o 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.
F
Oberon F F o Useless in PvP and squishy crowd control abilities you can’t rely on. You can, theoretically, use him in Aspen Dungeon but there are sooo many other options…
F
Valentino F B o Well 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.
F
Saja

F F Has stun capabilities but I haven’t found one thing where she’s good at.
F
King Barton F F Just not relevant anymore.
F
Mihm F F Was useful in Mihm-Cheese setups but nobody uses that anymore for obvious reasons so she’s basically useless right now.
F
Amuvor F F Just awful.
F
Jahra F F Unlike her Transcendence version, Jahra is absolutely not worth building.
F
Tussilago F F 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.
F

  1. 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

    • 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”.

  2. 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.

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