Best Moonlight heroes in Epic Seven 2024 are: Judge Kise, Martial Artist Ken, Arbiter Vildred, Specter Tenebria, Ruele of Light, Dark Corvus, Belian, Little Queen Charlotte, Fallen Cecilia, Apocalypse Ravi,… These characters are difficult to defeat and have the ability to deal great damage during combat or protect themselves from it entirely with skills like invincibility frames that last a short time.
Top 1: Judge Kise
Her third skill reduces all enemy skill cooldowns, forcing them to use only basic attack. If she gets that off, the fight is usually over. Opponent teams need to bring immunity set just to counter her alone, which is a big resource investment. With the new update, her S2 has been moved into her s3, which gets a 75% chance to dispel a buff, which is useful in stripping immunity sets and applying skill reset if you soul burn.
She also gives defense break on her first skill, which is extremely useful in both PvE and PvP situations. That makes her a great all around unit, but I would say she shines more in PvP with her kit.
Having a mage with a +30 Tagahel’s Ancient Book for the soul burn is vital in making her S2 to S3 combo work on offense.
Top 2: Martial Artist Ken
This guy is one of the best characters in the game due to the way his kit works. He has 100% counter chance when he gets hit by a critical hit and 30% counter for a normal hit. Put on lifesteal set, some attack, health, defense, effect resistance and he becomes very scary. Add in Sigurd Scythe artifact and you will need to one shot him in order to win.
While he is vulnerable to stuns, he more than makes up for it with defense break + attack down debuff with no elemental disadvantage. He is strong in both PvE and PvP (offense and defense due to counter mechanics).
If you find your ML Ken getting debuffed too often, consider dropping some attack for more effect resistance. He is also weak against strong single target DPS that can nuke him even with Crimson Armin’s critical damage reduction.
Top 3: Arbiter Vildred
Arbiter Vildred is now very strong due to the fact that he has a free revive that allows him to put out damage at least once. That means he is strong against squishy PvP cleave teams as he can’t be one shot.
His first skill allows him to decrease combat readiness of 2 enemies, which is nice. Since he always starts with the S3 that can reset when killing something, it resets and is great for farming.
With the new changes, he now hits harder and he is also guaranteed to get an S3 attack in when he dies. If he kills someone, his S3 is reset and he can use it again. Very deadly against teams with low health/defense.
He is also highly versatile and can be used for PvP offense and defense, for fodder farming and pretty much your first choice AoE DPS due to having no element disadvantage. Once you get him and gear him well, he will be a powerhouse for a long time.
Top 4: Specter Tenebria
With the new overhaul, she has turned from mediocre to very powerful. Now she is extremely viable in PvE and PvP. For PvE, she is useful in Raids as now she cannot be targeted by single attacks unless she is the last one standing.
She gains bonus attack damage (up to 50%) when anyone dies (both ally or enemy). This works in Raid as the bonus carries over and does not reset. She also deals a lot more damage on her skill 3 based on the number of debuffs on the enemy. If someone dies to her skill 3, every enemy team member loses 50% combat readiness. In Abyss, you can run her with 3 support/healers due to her being neutral element and has poison, the most OP debuff on many Abyss floors.
In PvP, while she may be vulnerable to AoE attackers, but you can mitigate that by using healers. She can now hit very hard as long as you land debuffs on any enemy, especially defense break. Her damage will also increase as characters die.
Also, her skill 1 now cannot be counter attacked and can hit 2 enemies when skill 3 is on cooldown, so she becomes much stronger on offense as she can’t be targeted by RNG counter attacks.
Top 5: Ruele of Light
Ruele of Light, a great character that ensures your teammates can be revived when they die. This useful for both PvE and PvP.
Squishy DPS died in Abyss? No problem! Full heal + invincibility! Put in Iseria and you have a team that can’t die. Her basic attack when soul burned can heal all teammates. Her second skill is a single target cleanse + barrier.
The only downside to her is that she doesn’t have an AoE heal for the team and requires soul burn to do so. This is where she doesn’t do as well as Destina.
In PvP, she is used in tanky comps in defense and also can be used in offense if you know the enemy team has a bunch of damage dealers but low sustain.
Top 6: Dark Corvus
Dark Corvus is a tanky warrior that can use a strong single target attack that penetrate defense after some turns have passed depending on how many times he gets hit. This is very good against squishy teams that don’t do enough damage to kill him.
He works very well in PvP, particularly in defense teams with healers and tanks. Also in Guild Wars, he has kill potential in defense as well.
Due to his slow way of killing things, he isn’t a very popular character among newer players, but for veterans and higher level players in PvP, they do know that he is good in long battles. He scales very well with his HP.
Top 7: Belian
Belian very strong as a unit in Arena defense teams (though not as much as in Arena offense, as the defense doesn’t use soul-burns).
Souls are a very prominent part of gameplay, so Belian completely deleting Souls as long as she’s alive is going to be more oppressive than, say, Solitaria blocking all Focus gain. However, she is countered by multiple things – her passive only stays up if she’s alive (meaning once she dies, the enemy can start gaining Souls again), and her only-AoE skillset means she’s countered pretty heavily in this meta of units that punish you for just that.
All in all, Belian is mostly a one- or two-trick pony, but she can be very strong when you draft her in RTA against the right team.
Top 8: Little Queen Charlotte
A solid unit that is self sufficient with debuff immunity, can self heal and penetrate enemy defense. She also protect her allies with reduced critical hit damage. Ever since the first release of ML Ken in the mystic summons, he has been hard to deal with.
ML Charlotte is a direct counter to ML Ken and other dark damage dealers thanks to her passive that reduces critical hit damage. Since she also does bonus damage to dark units, she is the perfect candidate to take the m on. She can hit quite hard if you built her full damage. The good thing is that she has a decent base health to reach acceptable health levels to ensure she doesn’t die from a one shot.
Her skill 3 can be soul burned for an extra turn, giving her a chance to finish off an opponent via defense penetration and then follow up by a debuff immunity via skill 1. If you are lacking a bruiser, ML Charlotte is a great addition to the team thanks to her utility passive.
Top 9: Fallen Cecilia
A defensive character with auto barrier passive (S2) and AoE skill nullifier on S3. Her S1 can go up to 100% provoke when skilled up. Her kit is great at disrupting enemy team from dealing damage to the DPS. Her auto barrier passive shields allies every turn. That means if the enemy does not have enough damage on the first turn, they will fail against your team most likely.
It is possible to build Fallen Cecilia with a bruiser-damage build, but that takes a lot more gear requirements than a straight-up tank build. She pairs up insanely well with a lot of units (e.g. Landy, Cerise, Tempest Surin), and makes it much easier for them to survive in PVP.
Top 10: Apocalypse Ravi
ML Ravi now is quite strong for PvP. Depending on how she is built, her main job is to soak up damage and deliver the final blow on an opponent for the situational revive if she kills someone. The revived hero can then instantly move, which can be very dangerous.
Her passive allows her to take more damage and sustain herself with heals. Running counter set or pure high hp (20k+) and decent defense and effect resistance is the way to go. She doesn’t do good damage if you can’t get high enough crit rate and critical damage alongside 20k+ hp. With the new changes, she is much easier to gear as she now gets a flat 30% crit rate bonus passive.
A well built ML Ravi is strong on offense as a light bait and also to tank other attacks. With a properly built A.Ravi, there’s not really any unit that can 1-shot her except Little Queen Charlotte.
