Heir Of Light Character Tier List

From Forest Lucien to useless upgrade fodder like the 1 star Grove Urchin, we rank out the creatures in Heir Of Light so you can always build the best group!

Although the combat takes place in a fast-paced, 3D arena, at its core Heir Of Light follows the basic gacha formula, complete with summoning randomized creatures, evolution, adding runes, and so on.

Of course that means there's a tier list to learn so you can put together the best possible team of warriors -- assuming you get lucky enough to summon the highest ranked creatures!

Heir Of Light Tier List

We won't bother listing the nat 1 star creatures, as in the vast majority of cases these are just fodder for enhancing your stronger characters. Creatures come in different elements as they evolve and awaken, so you may see the same name repeatedly or on different ranking tables.

Keep in mind that creatures can be upgraded via rune enhancements to shore up weaknesses or exaggerate natural strengths, so your mileage may vary and in some cases lower ranked creatures may actually be better than listed.

S Rank

These are the indispensable Heir Of Light creatures that will nearly always beat out all others, regardless of element, level, or rune loadout. You want these creatures in your battles as often as possible.
