Fate Grand Order tier list and reroll guide

Find the best servants to summon with our Fate Grand Order tier list, including all classes and rarities from across the massive catalogue of characters.

If you want to make sure you’re summoning the best servants, you’ll need a Fate Grand Order tier list to pick out the most potent battlers. As with most gacha games, there are a fair few characters for you to pick from, all with different classes, rarities, and move sets. You need to opt for the ones that suit your playstyle if you want to become the most powerful magician in all the land. Remember, don’t pick the top four characters just because they’re the most battle-ready, instead, experiment with compositions to find your best build. 

For more gacha games with a wide pool of participants, see our Genshin Impact tier list, AFK Arena tier list, or Awaken: Chaos Era tier list. If all this talk of summoning has you thinking of a different magic-orientated anime-hair franchise, be sure to check out our Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel guide and Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel meta decks list.

With that out of the way, let’s get into sorting the superior servants with our FGO tier list


Fate Grand Order tier list

As you’ll notice, there’s a massive number of playable characters in Fate Grand Order, split into twelve different classes. Not only have we ranked all the best overall servants, but below you can find tier lists for each class, with some offering up more potential than others. 

There’s no magic combination for a perfect build, instead, try out different combinations of characters and classes until you find what fits. We recommend that new players pick at least one S-tier servant just so you know you’ve got some firepower if you need it, but otherwise go for the characters you like the most, be it Merlin or Mozart.

How do I perform a Fate Grand Order reroll? 

If you’re not happy with your set of characters, you can perform a Fate Grand Order reroll to try and trade them in for a better bunch. To do this, follow these steps.

  • Make sure you’ve completed the tutorial and at least one quest to collect a 10-roll summon and one saint quartz 
  • Summon a servant using the saint quartz
  • If you don’t get the desired character, wipe your data and start the process again

It’s as easy as that, and there’s no limit on how many times you can reset your account. 

With that, you’re fully up to date on the best characters thanks to our Fate Grand Order tier list. For more experiences imbued with a sense of magic, check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list, Genshin Impact codes, and games like Skyrim on Switch and mobile.
