Tower Of Fantasy Best Characters [Top 6]

This guide discusses the best characters in Tower of Fantasy.

Tower of Fantasy is the latest Gacha game that is quickly becoming popular in the mobile game and gacha gaming community. The burning question right now is, what are the best characters to invest in right now? Well, you are in the right place because, in today’s guide, we will discuss the best characters in Tower of Fantasy.

Tower of Fantasy is developed by Perfect World and published by Level Infinite. In contrast to Genshin Impact’s supernatural medieval setting, Tower of Fantasy offers a futuristic setting and an enhanced combat system. While it is important to know the role of characters in Tower of Fantasy, knowing which weapon is most suitable for each character is just as crucial.

So be sure to check out our guide on the Top 5 best weapons and our Tower of Fantasy weapon tier list. Since it is a fairly new game with new mechanics, we will also recommend reading our Beginner’s guide and best Tips & Tricks for Tower of Fantasy guide as well. 

In Tower of Fantasy, you can choose between a roster of 15 characters or Simulacra, as the game likes to call them. Each of these characters has its own perks, abilities, stats, special attacks, and more. These characters can be obtained from the banner by rerolling.

Another important thing we would like to add is that, unlike Genshin Impact, the weapons you pair with the characters in Tower Of Fantasy are just as important as their abilities. Speaking of characters, also check out our Tower of Fantasy characters tier list as well.

So keeping this in mind, let’s discuss the best characters in Tower of Fantasy:

1. King

Scythe
King with his main weapon, Scythe of the Crow

The fiery scythe-wielding, no-nonsense brawler is, in our opinion, the best character in Tower of Fantasy right now. King is bold, focused, and always likes to get straight to the point. If necessary, King won’t hesitate to resort to violence if it means resolving a situation.

King is a DPS fighter with affiliation to the “Fire” element. King is simply just a really great melee fighter. He is unstoppable when it comes to close-quarter combat and can destroy the enemy’s shields with ease. He can deal a ridiculous amount of damage and has a wide attack range. The advancement fee for his weapons is low as well.
