Raid: Shadow Legends Tier List – The Best Champions to Get

There are a lot of characters to collect in Raid: Shadow Legends. At the time of this article's writing, there are more than 300 RAID: Shadow Legends champions to choose from, so, naturally, you are wondering which are the best ones to invest in.

So, I decided to compile a RAID: Shadow Legends champion tier list that ranks all of the currently available characters, from the best ones to the worst ones.

I've classified the characters based on their faction so that you can easily look up whether your latest pull is worth using.

Just like my AFK Arena Tier List, team composition is also a vital part of the game, so this tier list doesn't necessarily mean that you have to throw in the best champions to produce the best team you can have.

RAID: Shadow Legends Affinity System Guide

Like in most gacha games there are affinities in RAID: Shadow Legends too. For instance in AFK Arena one faction is weaker to another creating a full circle, while there are two independent factions weak to one another. In Bleach: Brave souls one Attribute is weaker than the other too and there are 2 attributes weak to one another.

Strengths and Weaknesses between affinities will play a vital role in your team formations, as you will have to exploit your affinity advantage for to win in several cases.

RAID: Shadow Legends Champion Roles

In addition to affinities, Champions also operate under a specific role that they play in, namely:

  • Attack – The DPS role. These are you damage dealers, and they are glass cannon type.
  • Defense – Well, this is a weird category as these characters have high defense and last longer. Still, they can also do plenty of damage, so eventually, they become a better option than Attack Champions.
  • HP – As you would expect, these are your tanks, soaking off damage.
  • Support – Support Champions focus on healing and buffs, but several other champions have support abilities.
