Grimlight Tier List: Ranking & Comparing All Heroes

We constructed a Tier List for the newly released mobile game, Grimlight, ranking ALL the heroes from best to worst.

Our Grimlight Tier List ranks all Grimlight Heroes in tiers from best to worst. The tiers range from S Tier, the best, to C Tier, which means “Not viable” or “Useless at the moment”. This tier list was made through proper research and hands-on experience. Moreover, If you like tier lists like these, you will love our Counterside Global and Dislyte tier lists.

Key Highlights
  • Grimlight features an entire playable cast of up to 46 characters that the game attributes as “Heroes.” Each hero is categorized into distinct classes and elements.
  • Besides their skills and base stats, all characters are ranked based on how competitive they perform in the world of Phantasia and outnumber all the Dreamless.
  • Adaptability and the amount of upgradability on offer are also vital ranking signs in Grimlight. 
  • Having that considered, Dracula, Madhatter, Red, and Cowardly Lion are the most viable characters in Grimlight at the moment. 
  • Grimlight heroes that seem useless for the current meta include Hook, Odile, Beast, The Huntsman, Puss, and Rapunzel. 
  • The best Grimlight Heroes should be the preferred main pick, no matter the situation, as they are truly versatile.

Here’s a complete summary of the Grimlight Tier List ranking Heroes:

As is obvious, these Heroes are the best of the best. They excel in everything, and no other Heroes are as good as them in what they provide. Their base stats are very good, and their skills deal devastating blows. Furthermore, the amount of upgradability these heroes possess is far greater than any others. The following Heroes should be your preferred main pick in every situation.

Moreover, even if the enemy has the ability to counter these Heroes. Their adaptability is more than enough for you to have at least some time to think about how to deflect these attacks on your Heroes’ weaknesses.

The best heroes are obviously at the top of the tier list, in the S tier. However, the heroes in the A tier also prove useful more often than not, so it is not in your best interests to ignore any of the Heroes without considering them first.

Moreover, the best teams are made through a combination of different heroes, so take your time in selecting your team. Also, check out the stats and skills provided for each Hero to mix and match your heroes to make powerful team comps. And additionally, this can also make you discover good synergies between your heroes.

Furthermore, each of the Heroes in this tier list has been ranked in their deserving rank after comparing them to every other hero and testing their efficiency and usefulness in every way possible. The Heroes in the S tier provide everything from Skills, Passives, and Traits to Overall good stats and synergies. At the same time, the Heroes in the C tier don’t provide much at all.
