Best heroes 4 star in Epic Seven 2024 are: Angel of Light Angelica, Troublemaker Crozet, Crimson Armin, Assassin Cidd, Champion Zerato, Blood Blade Karin, Inferno Khawazu, Challenger Dominiel, Sinful Angelica, Auxiliary Lots,… 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: Angel of Light Angelica
Her passive makes her completely immune to being Stunned, for one thing. On top of that, she completely punishes anyone using AoE attacks by increasing her Combat Readiness by 8% for every ally except the caster attacked; when she’s hit with an attack that hits all allies, she’ll activate a part of her passive called Guardian Angel (though, you gotta fully skill up her passive for the 100% activation chance) that dispels a debuff from all allies and grants them skill nullifier once. The downside of this is that Guardian Angel only activates once every 3 turns, so there’s a couple turns of downtime for it.
Finally, we have her s3, which dispels two buffs from all enemies, before silencing them and making them unbuffable for 2 turns. (Again, 100% chance when skilled up.) Her s3 deals no damage, meaning that it can’t land as a Miss – all it has to worry about is the Effectiveness/Resistance check, similarly to Flan’s s3. On top of that, due to dealing 0 damage, she can’t trigger any other units that punish AoE units (such as Inferno Khawazu or Rem).
She’s used solely for PvP use, but she really shines there, as you can see. Angel of Light Angelica can completely shut down the enemy units and leave them unable to use anything except their basic skills, along with punishing them should they resist her Silence and pop off with an AoE attack.
Top 2: Troublemaker Crozet
Looks like a Tywin but defensive. He doesn’t have much offense aside from being able to stun opponents. While he is able to protect the backline with his passive, he doesn’t offer too much aside from soaking up damage.
His stun can be 100%, but still requires a soul burn and high effectiveness to work well. That means it is much more for PvP. For PvE, he doesn’t offer too much with his skill set.
Top 3: Crimson Armin
A great unit for both PvE and PvP. Her third skill grants invincibility and debuff immunity, which is helpful for both. She can provoke on her basic skill. Her passive reduces damage done to allies. All in all, she is a great defensive tank. In PvP, Ludwig + Crimson Armin is deadly. She is hard to get though, so it is more for lucky players.
Top 4: Assassin Cidd
Since he has a kit that can stop/delay a single target by casting their powerful skills by silencing them. He also has a very high base speed, allowing you to get him past 220 speed and be able to go first in PvP.
His basic attack has defense break and when someone dies, he will get an attack buff and increased combat readiness.
His built is all speed and attack with some effectiveness to land his debuffs. 240+ speed is something achievable with end game gear and he can be annoying to deal with in high level PvP. Don’t forget – in RTA, he’ll be extremely annoying, because his S3 will remove 20 Souls from the opponent.
With the attack buff and combat readiness he gets when anybody dies, he actually gets a lot more turns and also deals more damage.
He is very squishy and can be hard countered by fixed damage and multiple AoE attacks.
Top 5: Champion Zerato
The new Zerato can now solo Azimanak 11 with ease using life steal gear. His new changes gives him hp% heal per use of skill 1. That means he will heal and counter attack 2 enemies every time he gets debuffed.
With the A11 Queen bleeding you constantly, ML Zerato gets to counter attack while hitting one of the eggs. Very effective I would say. You do need a lifesteal set to make it happen though. The extra healing keeps him alive.
As for PvP, he now directly counters Dizzy or any heavy debuffer, so he does have a role there now. All in all, he is a solid pick since he also provides defense break and attack down in his kit. Update: As of August 2020, the fact he transfers debuffs no longer ignores effect resistance of his enemies. This makes him a little less useful, but he’s still pretty good.
Top 6: Blood Blade Karin
Bloodblade Karin is a PvP oriented unit, but can also excel in Boss Hunts, particularly Golem. Her basic attack has lifesteal and she can sustain herself at low health. Put on a lifesteal set and she is really self sufficient.
She becomes dangerous at low health, improving her attack, defense and speed at intervals of 75%, 50% and 25%. She does have very low defense, so you will definitely want to get some health or defense to beef her up or she will die easily before you even have a chance to use her s3. However, with her new updates, her Immortality buff can also help to act as a safety net just in case; this, in turn, eases the requirements of bulk needed for your BBK to survive.
In PvP, she can be used as a cleave unit to either clean up or start the battle to weaken enemies. She does require molagora investment to shine though. The buffed Blood Blade Karin is now scary as the damage multipliers are even better now.
Top 7: Inferno Khawazu
Inferno Khawazu is an extremely fun unit in PVP! He’s one of the two units who can plant Vigor on himself, in exchange for good things happening. When he has vigor, his 75% burn chance on his s1 becomes 100% and plants two Burns on the enemy, and his burns on his S3 ignores Effect Resistance on Vigor. After that, his S3 detonates all burns in the enemy. On top of that, his passive pretty much punishes any unit who uses an AoE skill – if he’s hit with an attack that targets all allies he removes all debuffs on himself, heals based on his Attack power, and increases his Combat Readiness by 20% before putting Vigor on himself. Granted, it’s only usable once every 2 turns, but considering how he has 2-turn Vigor, it’s pretty much just constant Vigor cycling if you’re lucky.
He’s been tested in Arena a lot these past few weeks, and it’s been proven that he can actually pop Tempest Surin from under Fallen Cecilia, without proc’ing her insanely annoying passive. Fallen Cecilia will put skill nullifier on Tempest Surin, which will then activate Inferno Khawazu’s passive, and sets him up for his s3 – the skill nullifier negates any damage on his s3 that might trigger Surin’s passive ahead of time, but his dispel will destroy any barrier or immunity she has, place the burns, and then detonate. This detonation should be able to burst down T.Surin if you’ve built Khawazu with enough ATK.
The only two teams that he really can’t shine his best in are teams with no AoE attacks and Champion Zerato teams. (As it turns out, C.Zerato transfers debuffs back before the detonation can occur.) However, when he’s drafted against the right team, he can very much carry the battle with a lucky AoE hit! He pairs up great with Researcher Carrot, too.
Top 8: Challenger Dominiel
She is one of the strongest single target damage dealers in the game due to the way her kit works. She has built in crit rate buff that allows her to look for crit damage% stats, making her do even more damage. 50% crit rate is all you need.
She doesn’t need too much speed unless you want to use her in PvP. For PvE content, you can go full damage and she gets by with her passive as she gains combat readiness when your ally does critical hits. Bringing any high crit DPS is highly recommended with her. She’s best used in one-shot comps in PvE, along with in Raid.
She is easy to build and if you ever need a single target DPS, she is your answer.
Top 9: Sinful Angelica
An offensive Angelica with attack and speed buff for allies. The main play is around using her S3 immortality to perform dual attacks, prevent revives and cleanse 1 debuff for the team.
She is best used manually in offense in both PvE and PvP. Make sure to pair her with a strong attacker and utilize her immortality against revive units like Ruele, Roana or Maid Chloe. Since she also provides speed buff and attack buff, you will be able to get your turns faster.
In Guild Wars, she can be used as the utility support alongside a raw healer/tank with an offensive DPS. Since her skill 2 passive healing is unreliable, it is safer to bring another pure healer to ensure safety.
For PvE, she isn’t too useful compared to the staple healers and her skill 3 doesn’t come to play much.
Top 10: Auxiliary Lots
A good offensive mage that can instantly give your ally an attack buff + instant turn. This means you can build your main attacker with almost no speed and be able to deal big damage.
This works on any DPS like C.Lorina, Sez, Clarissa etc. His third skill can apply AoE silence, stopping them from using their powerful skills.
He is pretty much made for PvP. He also have some good uses in PvE, particularly Abyss and Raid to setup your DPS for big damage. When you’re building A.Lots, your main (and only) priority should be speed. Give A.Lots your best and fastest gear, so he goes first and outspeeds all of the enemies. Any other substats can honestly take a backburner when building A.Lots: they’re beneficial, but not the main focus. Also make sure to fully skill up his S2, so it’s 100% Combat Readiness.
