Zeals Hero List v2.0 – What Are The Best Heroes in Idle Heroes?

Zeals PVP Tier List Version 2.0

January 2019 Release

Author’s Notes:

  • This tier list is for E3 endgame meta. It is not a 10-star tier list.
  • Do observe that the tier list not only factors in a hero’s power in the current endgame meta, but also their viability in multiple line-ups and its ability to synergize.
    For example, I don’t feel that in the current endgame meta, Valkyrie or Belrain individually belongs in God Tier, however since they have their presence embedded in multiple auras and auraless comps due to their ability to synergize makes them God Tier. When most bring a Valkyrie to counter Valkyrie, it’s going to be brought along for the sake of staying endgame and so we begin.
  • Heroes not on the list pretty much fits under Tier 3 in needing major love from the developers. Not just a buff will do, an entire rework, if they care to implement time and resources into these heroes.

 

Changelogs

v2.0: December 29th 2018: Aspen release

  • Aspen, the Dark Lord, the newest addition starts off at God Tier. If you would like to see the detailed process and explanation for his toolkit, capability, and placement head over to https://youtu.be/wrzTeKlH9ik . In offense, he is solid pressure that ramps up. Strength to close games before round 15. Defensively sound as he builds his 5 “Shield” stacks. He has got it all; useful basic and active skills that has synergy, armor break, part of his damage that ignores damage reduction and armor, burst, sustain, execute, damage reduction, heal/recover mechanic, CC Immunity, and nw form of CC, Horrify. He may not be the best at all the criteria listed, but he’s definitely got all the features a “modern” hero needs in order to excel in the beginning of 2019 PVP Meta.
  • Lucky Candy Bar and The Kiss of Ghost Artifacts added to respective heroes.
  • Tier 2.5 removed. The difference between Tier 2 and 3 is big enough to set it apart. Tier 1.5 remains as there are still heroes that are almost Tier 1, but requires a specific line-up or hero combination ie. Flamestrike.
  • Dark Arthindol, Kamath, Asmodel moved down. The Dark Faction is getting way too crowded with people opting for double Amu or double Mihm (thanks to $ + Glory Relic Shop) or double Aspen variations rather than bringing DA. Asmodel is not doing his role and getting pushed over by support/utility Light heroes, who are bringing more value per slot. Light Faction is also feeling crowded with the new Light Hero coming in the near future. Kamath also is suffering from not getting picked in the previous auras where he once excelled.
  • Tier 3 added. Hanging onto old past heroes that are pretty much fodder at the current meta, but perhaps with enable change or to complete overhaul may climb back up? Doubtful.

v1.3:  November 16th, new Shadow Faction Warrior Horus added!

  • Horus starts off at Tier 1 due to consistent damage through Last Passive (counterattack from blocks) which is based off the attacker’s (not Horus’s) current HP. It’s not based off his current HP hence not nearly as broken. Ramps up damage and CC immunity over time. Weak against heavy attack reduces/steals, Valkyrie, Xia (basically current meta heroes) and lacks built-in damage reduction. Doesn’t bring a lot of toolkits for Rainbow Aura, but due to heavy pressure will be the prime Shadow hero for now.
  • Amuvor moved down. Tried multiple comps with single and double Amuvors. Great hero on his own, however that’s not what this tier list is about. Dark heroes are great, but just have a hard time fitting into the endgame Auras. Redemption, out. Auraless can work but way too squishy. Ruin lacking real synergy to hold them down (since Light heroes are QUEENS of support/utility at the moment). In Rainbow, Dark and Light slots are usually utility/support heroes to cover for the none L/D factions (sad times I know).
  • Flamestrike touched by the developers, moved up.. She definitely packs a punch (will provide clips in the near future). They boosted her active damage and doubled her passive stacks. Really dangerous if full glass-cannon build. However, that means inconsistent. Hybrid MSS Artifact HD Stone build is still decent pressure, but needs Cthugha to put up consistent pressure.

v1.2

  • Flame Strike moved up! No longer “cheese.” Tier 2 without Cthugha, Tier 1.5 with Cthugha

God Tier: Fits in multiple comps and synergizes extremely well with the rest of the heroes.
