Idle Heroes tier list

Even the most chill idle RPG gachas take a little strategizing. With our Idle Heroes tier list, we aim to give you a good head start at picking the best team.

Despite the idle genre being generally more chill than your average RPG, our Idle Heroes tier list is still pretty handy. While your heroes may be happy to go out and slash down the opposition even when you’re not there to give them a helping thumb, it’s important to build a good team if you want them to bring home the metaphorical bacon on your behalf. Keep in mind that tier lists are intended as guidelines only – if one of your favorite heroes falls into the D or E tiers, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use them, they may just take a little more support to get the best results.

If you’re looking for more laid-back battling, check out our list of the best idle games on mobile or the best gacha games. We also have an AFK Arena tier list, Grand Summoners tier list, Blue Archive tier list, and more, so you can gather an army of the strongest teams across a multitude of games.

To make it a bit easier to find who’s the best, we’ve divided our Idle Heroes tier list into a few categories.

Is an Idle Heroes reroll worthwhile?

In short, Idle Heroes rerolls really aren’t worth it. Though you do get a five-star hero from your first three summons, five stars don’t always mean the unit is good. These units are from the normal banner, and most of them are considered fodder, only useful in the early phases of the game until you get some better pulls.

We recommend you simply play through the game normally, saving scrolls, orbs, and coins to complete events and pull on better banners. And, while you’re at it, be sure to head over to our Idle Heroes codes guide for some handy freebies. If you’re looking for something fresh to play, check out our list of the best mobile games for a wider range of titles.
