Guardian Tales Tier List: All Heroes Ranked & Compared

Be that Warriors, Tankers, Rangers or Support units, we'll acquaint you with the best of them!

Guardian Tales players will agree: overcoming the deadly clutches of the invaders and rescuing Kanterbury is the most complex RPG dilemma ever to exist! And even if you can’t relate, you will be tested sooner or later unless you pore over our Guardian Tales tier list. 

Update: Our Tier list matches up with all the Hero changes in the latest patch update released on April 2nd, 2024.
Key Highlights
  • Guardian Tales has 120 heroes categorized into Warrior, Ranged, Tanker, and Support classes.
  • Weakest heroes like Loraine, White Beast, and The Knight (Male/Female) should be avoided unless no other options are available.
  • It’s advisable to avoid 1-Star Heroes as they may not offer optimal performance.
  • Choosing the best heroes is crucial for successfully navigating and overcoming challenges in Kanterbury.

Warriors Tier List

GT Warriors
Warriors Tier List

Warriors are the primary units of your team that you should be looking for with utmost responsibility and precaution. These are the front-line buddies who’d be leading the rest of the party into battles. That said, in the case of a warrior, you have to narrow your search to only the strongest, most flexible ones.

Tier List Criteria 

From the time eXputer started building tier lists to date, our team has always stuck to one aim, and that’s making the hierarchies as complete and comprehensive as possible. Since the tier list is part of our same legacy, the aim is still continued.

To do so, our team reached out to the community, skimmed through discord servers, and collected reliable information from a bunch of different authorized sources. 

So yes, general opinions are very much supported here and are one of the sturdiest pillars that hold our tier list, but it’s ok if you still can’t relate to some parts. At the end of the day, tier lists tend to be a somewhat subjective thing, and we fully respect our every reader’s view. 

Therefore, we will absolutely appreciate it if such unique gamers out there share with us their view in the comment box down below.

Changes Due to Patch Update 

Updated Till: Aug 8th, 2023 (Beach Dragon Knight Shapira Update) 

Frequent Maintenance and Improvement Updates are a crucial part of any game to keep the mechanics fresh and exciting and the Guardian Tales game is no different. This year Guardian Tales is seen to add more than a few characters to its already huge playable caste, along with welcoming multiple nerfs and buffs here and there.

That and a lot more, the list below discusses everything you need to know before forming your go-to Guardian Tales team:

Lapice:

  • Solar Wind (Normal) improved:
    • Before: Creates a whirlwind to deal damage to enemies.
      • After: Causes a hurricane to inflict damage to enemies, and increases melee damage by 30% for 5 seconds
  • Spotless Mind (Special Ability) improved:
    • Before: On Shiny Swing’s hit, increase Atk by 25% for 3 seconds. For each Light Type party member, increase Crit Hit Chance of party members by 10% up to a maximum of 30%.
      • After: On Shiny Swing’s hit, increase Atk by 30% for 3 seconds. For each Light Type party member, increase Crit Hit Chance of party members by 10% up to a maximum of 30%.
  • Elite Royal Guard Captain Valencia:
    • Increased damage of Judgement Edge (Chain Skill) from 300% to 350%.

Summary

And that’s a wrap for our tier list. With the game’s complex gacha systems, assembling a complementing team is not child’s play, but hopefully, it would seem like one for those who have thoroughly read this post. 

Though we have highlighted the best in-game characters who you should be looking for from the very start, not always will these top-tier hunks who save you. Guardian Tales players, whether newbies or experienced, must be aware of forming a winning team. 

That said, we tried our best to convey the importance of hail with the right combination of heroes of different classes. So what’s stopping you then? Save the Kanterbury!
