Raid Shadow Legends List of Champions by Ranking

RAID: Shadow Legends Champion Ranking is categorized under 5 Rarities (Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon and Common) and sub-categorized based on Ranking. The list is sorted in alphabetical order to ease searching by champion name.

Disclaimer: It’s not possible to create the perfect ranking list since each champion can be useful in a certain situation, with the right team composition and excellent equipment set with godly stats. The champions in this tier list are ranked by comparing the champions of the same rarity based on their utility. In addition, they are tiered according how they synergize with other champions 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, Faction Wars, Campaign, Clan Boss and Dungeons (Spider’s Den, Fire Knight, Ice Golem, Minotaur).

    @Ayumilove, Bellower and Coldheart are still duplicated in S Rank Rare and F Rank Rare.

  2. Lex V Strahorn

    Apothocary is in S and F

    Hi Ayumilove, nice job with this site. I think in your last update something went wrong with the list of F rank for rares. Aphotechary, Coldheart, etc are included on the list.

    By the way, when do you think you can include the new champs (with the whole Faction)

  4. cladinshadow

    thanks for the list, but I noticed some rare champions – apothecary, bellower, coldheart are listed both in S and F rank is there a reason was it just a mistake
