Best heroes 5 star in Epic Seven 2024 are: Mediator Kawerik, Arbiter Vildred, Conqueror Lilias, Specter Tenebria, Apocalypse Ravi, Maid Chloe, Little Queen Charlotte, Ruele of Light, Belian, Fallen Cecilia,… 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: Mediator Kawerik
With Mediator Kawerik’s new buffs, he’s finally gotten the nudges and changes he needs to be actually decent! And guess what; he’s better than “actually decent” now! His HP% multipliers have been increased, it’s not absolutely necessary to put him on an Effect Resistance Build, his S3 offers more than just cleansing; he’s become a counter to the highly-oppressive (and quite frankly overloaded) Angel of Light Angelica, who’s seen heavy use these days.
One of the main downsides to him is that he’s a ML 5-star unit; because he’s already one of the rarest types of units in the game, not many people will have him for going up against AoL. On top of that, he was incredibly underwhelming in his first release, so not many people pulled for him. However, for those who are lucky enough to have him, he now makes for a great unit in PvP – specifically, RTA against Angel of Light Angelica.
Top 2: 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 3: Conqueror Lilias
Conqueror Lilias is an insanely good unit; a lot of players agree that she has a very overloaded kit that can work in just about any team. While C.Lilias is not, say, a unit that can singlehandedly solo everyone in the enemy team, the amount of buffs and debuffs that she provides is more than enough to enable her own team to unlock their full potential.
As her s3 provides AoE Vigor to everyone on her team (the undispellable debuff that increases the wearer’s Attack and Defense by 30%), decreases enemy buff durations, and decreases their attack for 2 turns before granting her a second turn, Conqueror Lilias can make for a great opening unit. On top of this, with her extra turn on her s3, she can chain that into her S2, which decreases a chosen enemy’s Combat Readiness by 25%, before inflicting Redirected Provoke for a turn, before granting herself and the tankiest ally in her team a barrier for 2 turns. Her S1 isn’t anything to write home about, as it’s pretty much the exact same as her RGB variant. She will attack an enemy with her sword, before pulling along a random ally with her for a Dual Attack.
C.Lilias is not exactly a PvE unit – players wouldn’t want to put her in a Wyvern 13 team and expect success, for example. However, where she shines is in anything PvP related. She makes for a great opener in Guild War Offense, Arena Offense, and – of course – RTA. In fact, she has a very high first-pick rate in RTA, and it’s rare that she can make it past the banning stage. Even barring the units that directly benefit from Vigor (Inferno Khawazu is the first that comes to mind), nearly every damage dealer or tanky unit will love having C.Lilias on their team.
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: 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.
Top 6: Maid Chloe
Maid Chloe is decent as her Revive + Attack is an offensive kit for your attackers to get their attacks off without worrying about dying.
Revive is a very underrated skill. You can get away with being more reckless. Revive is also a useful skill in Abyss as you get a second chance. The new changes makes it such that she can revive a teammate to 20% health when they die, giving them a chance to get a move. Also, if everyone on the team is dead, all other teammates get revived at 20%!
Her biggest weakness is definitely being no AoE heal and therefore not a full time healer if you compare her to traditional soul weavers like Achates, Angelica etc.
Top 7: Little Queen
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 8: 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 9: Belian
Having two weeks to test Belian out, it’s become clear what her place in the meta is – she’s an RTA bruiser, meant to completely block units from using their Souls and slowly whittle down the opponent. She’s 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 10: 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.
