Awaken Chaos Era Tier List (Hero Ranking)

Awaken Chaos Era Hero Tier List uses a ranking system to categorized heroes based on their usefulness. The heroes are grouped into 5 Rarities (Legendary, Epic, Elite, Rare, and Common) and sub-categorized based on ranking aka tier list. The Awaken Chaos Era hero tier list is sorted in alphabetical order to ease searching by hero name.

How to use this tier list?

There are 5 rankings shown in this tier list (S, A, B, and C) and each hero is grouped in a specific ranking based on their overall performance in the game! The highest tier (S Rank) indicates that they are useful in many areas whereas the lowest tier (C Rank) means they have a very niche use case, useable in very few parts in the game. This tier list is not to deter players from not experimenting with the heroes who ended up in the low ranking. However, it acts as a quick guide to identify heroes that are worth your time to invest resources in leveling them! Always check out the hero links to learn more about them as they might be helpful to you in the areas you are struggling with!


It’s not possible to create the perfect ranking list since each hero can be useful in a certain situation, with the right team composition and excellent equipment set with godly stats. The heroes in this tier list are ranked by comparing the heroes of the same rarity based on their utility. In addition, they are tiered according to how they synergize with other heroes in terms of buffing allies and debuffing enemies so everyone can win the battle more efficiently. It also takes into consideration how well they performed in multiple scenarios such as Arena Offense, Arena Defense, Guild Boss, Adventure and Arcane Dominator Dungeons (Roaring Tulpa, Ash Magisteria, Queen of Tides, Witch of the Wind, Gemini Dragon) and No Man’s Land Dungeons (Bane Wraith, Flame Lizard, Wrathful Flood, Lord of Holy Light and Shadow Captive)

    Used your guide a lot , appreciate the work you put in

  2. Aaron E

    Ayumilove, back when I played RSL, you had the champs filterable by debuff/buff/etc. It would be incredibly useful (and a generous donation of your time) if we could filter your lists by bleed/poison/rage/stun/etc. Do you have any plans to do this for ACE?

    @Lee C Fontenot: I would put Shane at S Rank. You can watch my review video on my full play testing 🙂

  4. Lee C Fontenot

    Where would you rank Shane?

    Good job for this Tier list i like it !!

    @Dido: Santis is one of the best Epic heroes for game progression from the early game till the end game, hence the S rating is awarded to her. If you think she is weak, then it could probably mean you have not used her extensively in your account or have not utilized her to the fullest potential.

  7. Dido

    very useful tier list. I only find Santis to be too overrated here. She is basically too weak i would say even useless in most cases, doesn’t deserve S.

  8. Sbiriguda

    and then why abbot and cece are in the same tier… abbot in barely getting

    @Sbiriguda: This tier list is based on the hero’s usability in all areas of the game. The higher ranking of the hero represents more areas where they are usable, whereas the lower ranking represents niche usage in specific areas in the game or requires a very specific team combination for them to unleash their full potential.

    @Alan Lesene: There are 5 types of rarity heroes in Awaken Chaos Era, which are Common (Grey), Rare (Green), Elite (Blue), Epic (Purple), and Legendary (Yellow).

  11. Sbiriguda

    Can someone please explain the tier list? make no sense, hero with rating of like 1 stars on every mode, are in the same tier of hero with 4-5 stars in some mode

  12. Alan Lesene

    Methinks you confused ACE with Raid Shadow Legends. There are no Rare heroes in this game.

    @CLAUDY: All 4 new heroes (Aurea, Aubry, Thor, and Jabez) are listed in the hero tier list above. If you are unable to view it, kindly clear the browser cache to fetch the latest update on this page 🙂

  14. CLAUDY

    Where is Aurea (Epic) pretty good fighter

    @Frank: I have updated Mary’s rank from B to A.

  16. Frank

    Mary definitely needs to be A tier – she is valuable with invincibility, grants a bonus turn to ally, and can stun an opponent.

    @M0rkar: Lightwing Zachary rank has been updated.

  18. M0rkar

    Lightwing Zachary C rank..update this please xD

    @Dueydoodah: I have added Savanna. It seems that Savana name has been changed from Savannah to Savanna, which causes it to not be displayed in this list. Thanks for highlighting it!

  20. Smöke

    @Ayumilove: Gotcha, that makes a lot of sense haha. Sorry if I came off as pushy or was rushing you I was genuinely curious cause this is the site I use for both ACE and raid surprisingly. It beats out the official listings imho as far as accuracy and dependability. Keep up the great work!

  21. Dueydoodah

    I noticed that Savanna is not listed.

  22. MixedReactor

    This list has been so helpful. Thanks for making it!

  23. MixedReactor

    Surprised to see Melizza in B tier, I think her ultimate is pretty good

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    @Godkings: Thanks for your input! Currently, I do not have Dark Nicklaus, so I rated him based on his skill kit and see how he fits in the game based on my experiences using other heroes that I have on my account. Once I’m able to test him thoroughly, I’ll revise his rating again to make it more accurate 🙂

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @Smöke: I update the Tier List based on my personal testing on these heroes and see how they perform in all stages in the game.

  26. Smöke

    I’ve got to hand it to you, this is better than the official websites tier list, so I appreciate it. How often do you update this tier list? A new hero was released yesterday which I wasn’t sure if I should spend crystals on.

    Wer lesen kann…

    In dieser Rangliste werden 5 Ranglisten angezeigt (S, A, B und C), und jeder Held wird basierend auf seiner Gesamtleistung im Spiel in einer bestimmten Rangliste gruppiert! Die höchste Stufe (S-Rang) zeigt an, dass sie in vielen Bereichen nützlich sind, während die niedrigste Stufe (C-Rang) bedeutet, dass sie einen sehr nischenspezifischen Anwendungsfall haben, der in sehr wenigen Teilen des Spiels verwendet werden kann. Diese Rangliste soll die Spieler nicht davon abhalten, nicht mit den Helden zu experimentieren, die in den unteren Rängen gelandet sind. Es dient jedoch als Kurzanleitung, um Helden zu identifizieren, die es wert sind, Ressourcen zu investieren, um sie zu leveln! Schauen Sie sich immer die Helden-Links an, um mehr über sie zu erfahren, da sie für Sie in den Bereichen hilfreich sein könnten, mit denen Sie zu kämpfen haben!

    So looking at your list, I would move some up and others down. Take for instance, Darkened Nicklaus. Imo, I believe him to be the best attacker, for the arena, out ALL the heroes in the game. You don’t need to build him with defense. In fact, it’s best he has as little hp as possible so his attack is as op as it can get. My team in the arena is him, Brand, Mytheasia and Brand the Brilliant. The only one I built with some speed is Brand. Any enemy team that is attack heavy has no chance at winning, especially if they go first; all 4 enemy heroes need to go first so that Brand can cleans any negative effects, same with Myth. Then Brand puts his defense & attack up on everyone. If Myth goes before B the B or DN, you just use the single heal on herself and then DN drop defense down on everyone, then uses his ultimate which usually takes out at least 2 ppl, if not the entire enemy team. I’m in Plat 3 and I haven’t even hardly tried to go ham in the arena in the game yet. Anyways, he’s also useful against the guild boss. His passive is unlike anyones in the game, death immunity. If you’re lucky enough, you can get his passive to keep recharging itself so he never dies. And again, the lower his hp is, the more damage he puts out. Sorry for the rant I just pulled him on the 2nd day and haven’t stopped using so seeing you put him as a c-rank kinda rubbed me the wrong way🤷🏻‍♂️ Maybe you haven’t used him that much so you don’t know how useful he can be.

    @Valtrano: I have added Godfery into the Tier List. Thanks for highlighting it!

    @Slayer: The ranking here is updated based on the hero’s usage in various areas in the game.

  32. Slayer

    So why did Evera get demoted? She got buffed yes?

  33. Ayumilove Post author

    @Dvzn1: I have just updated the tier list.

  34. Dvzn1

    Is this tier list updated?

  35. Ayumilove Post author

    @TesarioN: Prioritize on leveling up Evera as she will be your key hero to quickly reach Adventure Mythic. You really need to get there to get the maximum amount of EXP Jelly to build fodders quickly to level up more heroes who can specialize in specific dungeon farming, Endless Tower and Void Tower.

  36. TesarioN

    Hello, thanks for your advice for both RAID and ACE, I wanted to ask you what you think about start an account with Evera + Crazed Urzag, I read that the latter is bad .

  37. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mike: I have added Hydrissea to the Tier List! Thanks for highlighting the missing hero.
