RAID Shadow Legends Tier List – The Best Champions Ranked

In this post, you will find our RAID Shadow Legends tier list. 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. Thus, naturally, you wonder which are the best ones to invest in.

So, I compiled a RAID: Shadow Legends tier list that ranks all currently available characters. The list starts from the best ones and goes down to the worst ones.

I've classified the characters based on rarity so that you can quickly lookup whether your latest pull is worth using.

Team composition is also a vital part of the game. So this tier list doesn't necessarily mean you have to use 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.

Strengths and Weaknesses between affinities will play a vital role in your team formations. You will have to exploit your affinity advantage to win in several cases. You will have to overcome a disadvantage in other cases, especially in high-level dungeons.

RAID: Shadow Legends Affinity Strengths & Weaknesses

Read also: RAID: Shadow Legends Beginners' Guide

When an attacker holds an affinity advantage:

The chance of a Skill landing as a Strong hit is 30%

– An extra 15% chance of landing a skill as a critical hit

If the attacker has an Affinity disadvantage:

– Damage is reduced by 20%

– A 35% chance of getting a Weak Hit

– A chance of a Skill landing as a Critical Hit is reduced by 15%

Hit Types

– Weak Hit

There is a 30% reduction in damage (including all bonuses), and specific effects aren't triggered. 

– Normal Hit

The damage a Champion deals is just the primary output of the Skill. This is the default hit of the game.

– Strong Hit

It deals an extra 30% damage.

– Critical Hit

It deals an extra load of damage equal to the Crit Damage stat.

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.
