Updated: July 19th, 2021 - Adjusted some tiers, updated the list to the latest patch, App version 2.7.900

First things first: this is not your average Another Eden tier list, as units in the game aren’t really categorized in so-called tiers. For another, it’s not your typical gacha game where you roll for the best units and others fall by the wayside since the game is more of a classic JRPG than a gacha game, anyway.

That said, this guide is to show which characters serve the best roles, but the bottom line is that you should essentially choose the unit that you like best, and whoever looks cool to you. Aesthetics are gorgeous in Another Eden, so character design is a major appeal for the units. Besides, you can actually get by pretty well with just the free units you gain throughout the main story, but just in case you want to figure out which banners to pull from, this Another Eden tier list has you covered.

Another Eden tier list: the fan faves

It’s important to keep in mind that for any given Another Eden tier list, units with AS or Another Style are usually fan faves right off the bat. Units with AS have a different character design plus a tweaked skillset, so pulling one from the banners is a good deal by itself.

  • Mariel - a non-elemental support mage that can heal party members and cast regen; has Aurora Force skill that can provide type resistance for all party members
  • Ciel - earth-elemental support unit with very high Power debuff; can cast type resistance for all party members for a whopping 5 turns.
  • Levia - 5-star water-elemental mage; the end goal for the arduous task of fishing for the completionists out there
  • Hozuki (AS) - obsessed with her tail; is the ultimate waifu 

Any character that has an elemental attack can properly round out a good Another Eden tier list. Enemies, whether random mobs you encounter in the world map or big bosses you need to gear up for, will almost always have elemental weaknesses and resistances, so swapping your characters in the front line and in the back row for various elements should be based on the enemy you’re currently facing.

Since healers are hard to come by, it’s a good idea to use the back row as a way to restore your party’s HP and MP if you don’t have a support mage with you. This is especially effective if you have someone who can cast Sleep on foes so that you can safely recover your injured units in the back row.

How to change classes in Another Eden?

By the way, did you know that you can actually change classes in Another Eden? All you have to do is talk to Lady Midd in the Spacetime Rift Tavern. Characters can be upgraded to higher classes when you obtain specific Tomes in Another Dungeon, which are essentially more difficult versions of previous areas you’ve cleared. This way, you can make sure that free characters like Aldo won’t get outdated, as changing classes grants a character a new ability board with better skills and higher levels.

The following tier list features all the characters that have currently been released (to date). Their tiers is mainly based on how well they perform in the instances we've tried, so it's an ever-changing list - we'll do our best to keep you updated regularly!
