A-Tier Characters

I consider the following group of Blue Archive tier list characters very strong, with high enough stats to support any party. Although they’re not as strong as the S-tier characters and their equipment isn’t as impressive, they’ll generally do very well in any game mode.

B-Tier Characters

Finally, I selected these characters due to their accessibility, so even beginner players can learn how to play very well. However, although they have above-average skills, I wouldn’t chase them when rerolling for the best characters.
