S-Tier

Players who want to reap the most of the scarce in-game money and limited upgrade items money provided in Octopath Traveler, the best of the best CotC characters, are what they should be looking for.

S-tier dwellers ranked below are the perfect candidates in that case which you surely don’t want to miss. They are definitely worth an Octopath Traveler CotC reroll. 

A-Tier

Though these picks lack the stunning capabilities that make S-Tier characters worthy of occupying the top tier of our Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent, A-tier inhabitants are still worthy enough to be reckoned with.

B-Tier

B-tier characters of our list are average picks that work awesome occasionally. If you want to pull out a generally good performance from them, you need to be an experienced Octopath Traveler player. 

C-Tier

These units may earn you a win or two, but with effort.

Long-time OT players can pull more than a few triumphs via C-tier CotC characters. Rookies, however, are recommended not to try their luck with these unless no option from the top tier is available. 

D-Tier

The D-tier fellas are the least recommended picks of our Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent tier list. Experienced or new players, will have to drag these units actually to pull some usefulness out. Therefore, it’s advised not to invest much in the D-tier characters of CotC. They should only be considered as a last resort.

Best Characters Of Octopath Traveler Champions Of The Continent 

Best of Octopath Traveler CotC
Best Characters of the Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent

Here are the top units of the Octopath Traveler CotC tier list that we think deserve your special attention compared to the rest: 

Alfyn

The blonde-haired Alfyn continues from the storyline of the former Octopath Traveler to Champions of the Continent. He’s an Apothecary of the game who offers robust support to a CotC party via his awesome revive skill, cool status ailment eraser, and the very useful single-target heal. 

Alfyn also puts great offensive abilities at a player’s disposal via its poison-inflicting spells and powerful weapons. The character is great at reviving, restoring BP and SP, cleansing and buffing himself and the rest of the party, as well as inflicting elemental damage on enemies.

Ophilia

Ophilia is also one of the eight playable characters OT players are offered. She is a Cleric of the Octopath Traveler known for her single elemental target defending buffs and a significantly extensive healing ability that proves beneficial for every ally. 

Light-elemental spells are also one of Ophilia’s specialties. With defense, she is also pretty robust in attacking hence hailing as the top most versatile character of Octopath Traveler CotC. With her last Saving Grace, Support Skill, and Reflective Veil, Ophilia can swell her survivability as well as perform as a key anti-magic character in all quests.

Cyrus

This is another great buddy worthy of becoming a part of your Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent team. Perhaps calling Cyrus the best magic-oriented pick of the CotC tier list won’t be wrong either. 

The Scholar class unit has a ton of spells in its arsenal to target enemies vulnerable to magic at an extensive scale. Cyrus may seem a little weak initially, but give him some time and enjoy the best of Octopath Traveler battles you might have ever before. 

Lynette

Lynette belongs to the dancer buffer class and is one of the best Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent characters, if not the best. She does great buffing and needs absolutely no 5-star support to shine off.

Plus, the character shifts from the front or back row and back swiftly, buffing up the entire party along the swapping. Furthermore, you’ll get great longevity with Lynette onboard and a massive SP stock to inflict out potent skills. Players looking for even more punch might like swelling Lynette to her 5-star self, making her a one-of-a-kind Fire breaker and Strong Fan unit as she can break foes quickly via her multi-hit attacks. 

Scarecrow

Despite the complicated gacha mechanism Octopath Traveler is known to hold, Scarecrow is a pretty simple-to-use unit of the many in the cast. The character is personally our favorite and renders quite substantial damage to support you in your initial OT journey. 

However, players should not miss on bundling Scarecrow with his 5-star. Otherwise, the unit is just about damage and tends to show very little support. So yeah, build him up properly, and Scarecrow is easily an A-tier, very easy-to-maneuver character everyone will like in their teams. 

Octopath Traveler Champions Of The Continent Tier List Criteria 

The tier list above is curated after investing substantial time in researching the most reliable and definitive information possible. Every single CotC character and the utilities that come coupled with them were deeply scrutinized in the process. 

That said, our main focus behind the making of the above hierarchy was not only a unit’s in-game effectiveness but also how the larger gamers community thinks about them. Also, considering that the OT’s Champions of the Continent release is still pretty fresh in the gaming realm, the JP version heavily influences our current hierarchy. 

Why Trust Us? 

Our team of tier list makers at eXputer has been doing the job for a while now. We always remain ready to share our versions of hierarchies on nearly every game that sets its foot into the community, hence hailing as one of the best, most reliable tier list creators of the time. 

We try to give our utmost best in facilitating rookies as well as veteran players with the most up-to-date ranking possible. Our team appreciates your feedback and aims to continue providing gamers with a needed headstart in their favorite video games. 

That’s about our Octopath Traveler tier list for Champions of the Continent. As CotC is quite a fresh release, we look forward to updating our hierarchy as we get across more; therefore, don’t miss checking frequently. Given the usual subjective nature of the tier list, the above ranking must be taken as a guideline only, keeping in mind that all units can prove useful in the right circumstances.
