Other recommended tier lists[edit]

  • GBF Gaijins Tier List - Different priorities than GameWith. Tiers for general and advanced content. Longer character descriptions and gameplay advice.

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.
  • The Eternals have their own rating system separate from other characters.
  • At the end of the day this is just a tool to help you find useful characters.

Please see this page for further notes

9.0
  • Role: Attacker
  • Her skills require a few casts (five for Right Hairsaber and four for Left Hairsaber) to reach maximum damage output.
  • With her Charge Attack lowering her skill cooldowns by 2 turns and a passive that has a chance to lower them another turn, it is possible for her skills to reach the hit cap much earlier than normal.
  • Her first skill fills her charge bar but is on a very long cooldown and costs 20% of her maximum HP. Without a way to keep her from taking damage, it may do more harm than good to use it.
  • Relatively low damage output that gets outshined by other Wind attackers.

  • Long skill cooldowns hinder his effectiveness even with his Charge Attack's special effect.
  • 5★ enhances his party role and improves his damage output.
  • Overall, a very good early-game support character for Wind.
