Having some of the best champions in the game on your team can make a huge difference when challenging bosses and other monsters. This RAID: Shadow Legends tier list contains all the characters in the game, and it will help you pick the best ones in terms of usability and rarity.

Of course, as you might already know, there are quite a lot of champions in the game. They are divided by rarity, role, affinity and faction, but don't let that discourage you - choosing the best ones is quite simple.

First, you should learn some of the basics of the game from our game guide. Then, you should focus on just a few - it really doesn't matter which rarity (as long as it's not Common or Uncommon, of course) if they are considered S-tier. Finally, if you want to quickly upgrade them all you should do is stay active in the game. By logging in daily, and doing all your quests, you'll end up levelling up and upgrading most of the champions to max rank sooner or later!

Ultimate RAID: Shadow Legends tier list

Since many of these champions have multiple uses, this tier list will reflect their overall rating. I am well aware that some of the champions might do better than others in Clan Boss, for example, while others will be completely terrible for Clan Boss but S-tier for PvP Arena.

Mythical  |  Legendary  |  Epic  |  Rare  |  Uncommon & Common

Below are all the characters released in the latest V7.60, but their ranking is still relatively temporary - we need to test them out a little bit more! So if you feel like some of the tiers need to be adjusted, let us know why!

RAID: Shadow Legends Mythical champions tier list

best champions - Gharol Bloodmaul

The Mythical champions are the latest addition, and they are fairly similar to the Legendary ones, except a lot stronger. If you are lucky and get a few of these, your team is set. If possible, try to aim for the S-tier ones, because they'll make a great addition to ANY team. Every Mythical champion can switch between two forms, Base and Alternate

They can also change their usability, turning from Attack to Support, Support and HP, or anything else you might imagine, depending on the champion. Just make sure to equip the right gears for the type of champion, because these Mythic ones will need alternative sets.

Siegfrung the Nephilim is one of the first Mythical champions released, and he can switch between Support and Attack, allowing for a highly versatile playstyle. He is able to deal great damage or heal the entire team, depending on which form you choose.

Gharol the Bloodmaul is an Attack or HP champion. When in HP form, he can provide great support by removing shields from enemies and taunting them, while making himself invincible. While in Attack form, he ignores part of the target's DEF and attacks multiple times.

Tier Characters
S Androc the Glorious, Alaz the Sunbreaker (Alt), Alaz the Sunbreaker (Base), Starsage Galathir (Base)
A Arbais the Stonethorn, Frolni the Mechanist, Gharol the Bloodmaul, Hierophant Lazarius, Night Queen Krixia, Hierophant Lazarius, Lady Mikage, Starsage Galathir (Alt)
B Aphidus the Hivelord, Mezomel Luperfang, Siegfrund the Nephelim

RAID: Shadow Legends Legendary champions tier list

best champions - Raglin

These are the champions you want on your team. If you manage to get a few of these, then you're probably set. Make sure that you stick to the S-tier or A-tier Legendary champions because these will greatly outshine every other character in the game.

Chaagur can inflict Sleep upon the enemy and has AoE attacks in his kit that can also inflict a Poison effect. He's an overall decent unit that also benefits from some self sustain from the passive skill.

Lyssandra is a great character that will transfer all of her debuffs upon the target and fully drain their turn meter. She will also buff allies' SPD, allowing them to attack more often by filling up their turn meter

RAID: Shadow Legends Epic champions tier list

RAID Archmage Hellmut

The Epic champions can be upgraded a lot faster than the Legendary ones, so you will probably end up maxing out some of these characters first. Try to stick to the S-tier and A-tier Epic champions if possible - in certain situations, they could even be better than the Legendary ones.

Archmage Hellmut is a unit obtainable from the Doom Tower, and he's one of the best Epic characters in Raid: Shadow Legends you could get your hands on. His attacks fill up his turn meter by a lot more than they usually do for most of the other units, and his normal attacks can inflict Stun upon enemies.

Ursala the Mourner is a decent support that can reduce the enemy's DMG dealt and can also revive allies - it's super handy if you need a support unit with various debuffs in their kit

I enjoy playing games ever since I was a kid (which was a long long time ago at this point). Everything started with an Atari 65XE. Then came an Amiga 500+, a Sega Genesis, a 386, a Playstation, a Playstation 2 and so on. Anyway, you get the idea. I consider myself lucky to be able to experience the gaming evolution throughout the years. This is my passion, and what I will continue to do for as long as I can.
