Important notes[edit]

  • The value and usefulness of a character varies based on your rank, your team, fight length, fight mechanics and how you play.
  • Each element is evaluated on its own. A 9.5 rating in Fire is not the same as 9.5 in Water.
  • The rating reflects the median usefulness of a character. A character may lose points for being hard to use or fit in a team, or gain points for being strong against Magnas. Judging a character by HL usefulness alone may be unhelpful as HL teams tend to deviate from other content.
  • At the end of the day this is just a tool to help you find useful characters.

  • Role: Defender
  • Can draw fire with her skill 1 (Hostility Up+Other Self), but can't attack in the meantime.

  • Underwhelming damage output due to poor nukes and no Attack buffs until buying his EMP passive.
Sophia iconA.jpg
Sophia Label Type Heal.png
Label Race Human.png
9.0
  • Role: Healer
  • Archetypal RPG healer; she heals, removes debuffs, and revives allies.
  • Lacks any team damage contribution outside of her normal attacks and Charge Attack.
  • She's more useful in the back line since she can revive front line allies after they're KO'd.
  • Very useful character for HL content.

    , and he gains stacking Attack Up when hit.
  • His Attack Up passive also lowers his defense until you use his first skill.
  • Requires careful usage due to high cooldowns and every skill requiring charge bar.
  • Some memorization is required since all of his skill icons are the same.
