How Tier Works

Tier-S

The S-Tier FGO servants make one heck of a team addition which is why we recommend not substituting them for any other. All of them equip a horde of skills and activities and plenty of health buffs to support themselves as well as their allies. Don’t miss leveling them or advancing their cards and abilities at the earliest chance.  

Tier-A

If given extra support or used in a proper niche, this category of FGO servants go toe-to-toe with the top-tier dwellers. Though not as spectacular as the Tier S, they can still help primary damage dealers and can be modified with a couple of buffs and cards to fit in any role proficiently. They make up a strong team against lethal foes and can help turn the game around in case of chaos.

Tier-B

These middle-of-the-pack characters aren’t mind-blowing in front of the top two tiers, but that doesn’t mean they are entirely useless. You can still go far in FGO’s play if left with no better options but the B-category servants. 

Tier-C

Servants of this category are passable and can serve primary roles in niche-specific compositions. Still, they might not be the best for damage unless they face a low-rank opponent. Their skillset is populated with only average stats across the board and, therefore, will need assistance from allies. 

Tier-D

Names under this tier only prove helpful in situations that rarely occur. In short, they are generally not good and offer meager utility hence having a greater risk of getting outnumbered by their foes. Tier-D servants need support from more potent allies to become worthy of playing. 

Tier-E

Only a miracle or a massive health buff can turn Tier-E names into servants worth considering for the team. These servants will take hard from the opposition and do nothing in return. Hence they are not recommended for close battling in the Fate Grand Order and must not be added to the team unless as a last resort when no better option is left.

Fate Grand Order Tier List Criteria

We have ranked various Fate Grand Order (FGO) servants as per their strengths and overall performance across the entire storyline to curate this tier list. Those possessing fascinating abilities and doing wonders in their specific roles are placed in the top tiers, while others are ranked where they ought to be with absolutely zero bias.  

Extensive spells of online research are carried out before formulating any content at Exputer, and this tier list is no different. To weigh the potency of each character present in the Fate Grand Order and then rank them accordingly, we skimmed through numerous online sources and experienced the intense FGO play ourselves. 

Moreover, we have incorporated the opinions of expert FGO players and newbie players to put forth the best possible tier list recommendations for you.

Why Trust Us

Our team has constructed this FGO tier list with the least amount of favoritism from their side, including recommendations from just unbiased players and sources. A reasonable amount of time was invested before curating the list to provide a trustable piece of content that helps you wisely determine which FGO servant is worth your time. 

We hope you enjoyed our Fate Grand Order tier list. We will keep updating it whenever there are new changes in the game. If you have got any queries or want to share your opinion on any part of this tier list, just let us know, and we will do our best to respond ASAP! 

Summary

Initially, FGO seems all nice and pie, but not until it starts pouring on the players its massive roster of Servants. Though these in-game units, or Servants as they are popularly known, are in dozens, each one performs exceptionally well, making it impossible for players to compile a team wisely. Our tier list will make it possible, though! 

Fate Grand Order manifests a charming visual-novel-styled storyline and a summoning and combating system as balanced as it is well-paced. However, to relish its natural essence and progress through its gacha battlegrounds as quickly and elegantly as possible, you need to know the best characters. 

This was all by our side about the Fate Grand Order and how to survive its fields by pulling the best in-game servants onboard. The best way you could yield the most of a tier list is to fetch characters that fully match your strategy and action style. The conduct can prove especially useful for new players. Our tier list also includes the top FGO names you can consider for filling up each role in your new team to make that step more manageable.
