Best heroes knight in Epic Seven 2024 are: Crimson Armin, Charles, Krau, Falconer Kluri, Ambitious Tywin, Fallen Cecilia, Rose, Belian, Charlotte, Ilynav, Last Rider Krau, Adventurer Ras, Troublemaker Crozet, Lilias, Mort,… 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: Charles
Charles is a great unit! Charles’s kit centers around reduce enemy damage, stripping their buff and also buffing his own team for a counter attack. He can be built offensively or defensively, depending on your preferences and the needs of your team. In PvP, he excels in both offense and defense, especially if you run Elbris Ritual Sword on him. He can proc his S1 into S2 against buffed enemies, and it’s insane to watch.
Top 2: Krau
Krau is great as a tank and is also a threat at the same time. He provides team defense buff, provoke from basic skill and a ignore defense attack on skill 3 that provides a barrier. He can pretty much kill most characters when he is low on health (provided that you have 20k+ hp on him)
The more health he has, the more dangerous he becomes. This makes him a terror in Guild Wars, as he can kill any of your squishy units and even tanks if he is given a turn when low on health.
I would be hesitant to attack Krau teams in Guild Wars if I don’t want to lose specific units.
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: Falconer Kluri
Falconer Kluri is still a very good unit! She’s been nerfed before, but her kit as-is is still extremely strong, especially once you get her Skill Tree fully enhanced. It’s very possible for her to lock down a unit with her s3, even with the nerf. Her s1 increases her own Combat Readiness, and with her Skill Tree maxed she’ll also increase the CR of a random ally, too.
Since her S3 doesn’t attack, it doesn’t have to worry about landing or missing the attack due to elemental advantage. All she would have to worry about is the Accuracy/Resistance check; even then, with her s3 soulburned, she won’t have to do that either. Falconcer Fluri can absolutely lock an enemy unit of your choice down and leave them vulnerable. She’s at her best in PVP, though she does have her spots in PvE.
Top 5: Ambitious Tywin
Ambitious Tywin now becomes a strong contender to counter 1st turn fast Basar’s in PvP. He cannot cleanse the combat readiness pushback, your team is at least safe from unbuffable, which usually means you need to bring a cleanser/healer.
He doesn’t have much play in PvE due to his kit. His skill 3 can stun and decrease enemy speed and is a much more useful skillset for PvP. Now in guild wars/arena, he has a solid spot in fighting any teams with heavy debuffs. Do keep in mind that his cleanse only works once per turn, so it doesn’t prevent you from other incoming debuffs.
His skill 1 is mostly for real time arena. It can provoke and reduce 2 enemy souls. That is quite good, considering how soul burn is key in winning you matches. He is a solid pick for PvP.
Top 6: 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 7: Rose
A great arena combat readiness booster that also gives attack buff to the team. She now also gains a defense buff for herself.
Her weakness lies in her low base speed and hence your PvP team requires another combat readiness booster with higher base speed to ensure you get the first turn.
Her second skill can cleanse debuffs of an ally. Her basic attack can provoke or give self defense buff, depending on her hp. Outside of PvP, she can be used as a tank in Wyvern. She does have less defense than a regular knight would have on average, so be sure to beef it up with defense stat if you choose her as a tank.
Top 8: 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 9: Charlotte
Charlotte gets a complete rework and now utilizes Fighting spirit, much similar to Ravi and Ken. Her ratings will be subject to change upon some testing.
Now she actually becomes stronger every time she gets hit. She gains attack and defense buff for 1 turn after that via her skill 2 passive. On top of that, she also gains combat readiness as well. That means she will be beefy enough to take some hits before going down.
Her skill 1 also turns into AoE when she is buffed. Now she is going to fit really well into teams both PvE and PvP.
Her skill 3 can’t be used right at the start, but she can gain fighting spirit easily and you can soul burn it to use it over and over again. Now, 100% crit rate is not required as skill 3 always is a critical hit as long it doesn’t miss.
Ilynav is a very interesting unit, though she relies quite a bit on RNG. Her s1 is similar to Charles, in that she has a good chance to trigger her s2 on her s1. (The main difference is that Charles’ s1 combos into his s2, while Ilynav’s s1 has a chance to be replaced by her s2 when not part of a dual attack.) Her base s1 isn’t the best, though, as it has no debuffs or anything special to offer, besides having a chance to become her s2. Her s2 is probably one of her best skills, as she’s one of the first units who can truly utilize Injury now.
Notice that the wording on her S1 only says “not a dual attack,” and not “counterattacks or dual attacks.” This means that Elbris Ritual Sword and Counter sets do work on her s2. She’s at her best in PVP (such as Arena or Guild Wars), and her multipliers that scale off of her Max HP are very good, especially on her s2.
When she doesn’t trigger her s2, her s1 is quite literally useless – it offers no debuffs or buffs whatsoever, meaning you’re praying on an unreliable chance to use the actually good skill. Overall, Ilynav does have potential in her kit. She just needs something to nudge her in the right direction needed to make her S1 useful for her kit to be fully usable.
Top 11: Last Rider Krau
His skill 1 is nothing special as it only provides a speed buff. His skill 2 is a passive that reduces his skill 3 cooldown by 1 turn when hit by an AoE attack + 1 turn barrier. His skill 3 is an AoE attack that ignores defense of the enemy and gives AoE team immunity.
Since his skill 3 can scale up to 3 times for bonus 60% more damage, he is good in long drawn out battles when paired with a healer. This makes him easy to use in PvP or guild wars against teams with no sustain.
He also has great defensive stats, making it easy to build. He needs a lot of health, some speed and effect resistance to be good. Since he can also be used as a cleaver, he also teams up very well with the Aux Lots and Lots pair.
Top 12: Adventurer Ras
Ras gains a lot after the specialty change. The key is him being a decent tank that can dual attack using his skill 2 with some of your strongest DPS units and a chance to defense break for 1 turn as well. This means he is a good option for those that are not lucky to get Lilias. He also grants immunity for both the ally and himself when dual attacking with command strike. This is great, especially in Guild Wars.
He is also a staple for Golem as he can pair with any strong fire DPS to dish out damage quickly to the Golem while protecting them as well. His specialty change also improved his health, giving him good survivability too.
His skill 3 remains roughly the same with slightly better damage, better healing and a slight combat readiness push.
Top 13: 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 14: Lilias
Lilias is a very versatile unit for both PvE and PvP. The good thing about her is that you can build her accordingly to where you need her to fill a spot. If you need a tank and cleanser, you can build her with hp and speed. If you need her as a cleaver, you can build her with high crit rate and crit damage and utilize a high attack stat ally.
She will be great in Golem and Azimanak Hunts, Lab and also the Abyss since she has cleanse and is a knight that can hold Aurius, further helping your team to mitigate more damage. With her dual attack, you will want to bring more offensive units to abuse the bonus DPS each time she uses her S1.
In PvP, she can be either the main cleaver or the secondary cleaver if you have a very high attack (4k+) DPS alongside her. Or she can also just be the primary cleanser and disruptor with her S2 provoke. She is versatile and can fill roles that your team is lacking.
Top 15: Mort
Mort used to be absolutely bottom-barrel tier, often called “The Great Memetelix” more than anything else and never saw any real use.
Now, though, he does his job better of being a counterattacking bruiser-type unit. He’s gotten better at his role; although Mort is still not top-tier yet, he does have a spot in PvP.
