Best heroes Warrior in Epic Seven 2024 are: Holiday Yufine, Martial Artist Ken, Apocalypse Ravi, Conqueror Lilias, Rimuru, Little Queen Charlotte, Designer Lillibet, Mediator Kawerik, Rem, Sigret, Hwayoung, Kitty Clarissa, Straze, Lilibet, Luna, Lionheart Cermia, Lena, General Purrgis, Judge Kise,… 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: Holiday Yufine
Due to her skills being all AoE, it’s incredibly easy for her to be countered in the current meta of anti-AoE and counterattacks. Angel of Light Angelica, Rem, Violet, etc. will easily eat her alive if she so much as breathes funny. There are still teams that she can do well against, but the primary teams in the arena right now definitely oppress her.
Her skill 3 attacks all enemies, cleanses 2 debuffs and increase combat readiness and attack of all allies. Her skill 2 passive is what makes her good against Basar. Since it increases evasion by 35% (and an additional 35% too), Basar is all but guaranteed to miss, allowing her to cleanse debuffs and counter push your own allies. The passive also reduces combat readiness pushback as well.
Her skill 1 is an AoE burn attack which ignores elemental disadvantage (but it is a single target when she dual attacks). Just like with Dizzy’s lack of single-target, this AoE attack is a double-edged sword; especially so in the meta of Rem + Violet.
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: 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 4: 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 5: Rimuru
Rimuru copies 2 buffs after using a non-basic skill and applies it to all allies; if you trigger their S2’s attack, they’ll copy buffs off of the enemy, put it on allies, and then be able to use their S3. 10,000 damage is actually a lot; with the raw damage that their S3 puts in before the fixed damage, the full attack can easily be enough to take out or severely weaken DPS units, like Violet.
Top 6: 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 7: Designer Lilibet
She’s a Defense-based unit, and her s1 and s3 scale off of her Defense. As such, she’ll need to be built as a typical bruiser. Though her S3 isn’t a full buff dispel, it can work in a pinch for debuff-heavy comps, such as against Fairytale Tenebria or Cerise. Her s2 can cycle pretty quickly, as well. The skill cooldown increase can also help in PVP as well.
She’s a unit that shines her brightest in PVP – in other words, Guild Wars, Arena, and the Real Time Arena. In PVE, you’d be better off just bringing an actual cleanser (e.g. Achates, Angelic Montmorancy, etc.), because ML Lilibet’s s3 debuff decrease is… situational, and silence can’t be applied on PVE bosses.
In other words, Designer Lilibet is a late-game PVP unit, and new players shouldn’t focus on building her yet.
Top 8: 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 9: Rem
Rem is considered to be another counterattacking bruiser in the meta. Now, that’s not bad or anything, not at all; in fact, right now Rem is absolutely game-breaking. Right now, she does have a good place in the Researcher Carrot and buff-heavy meta we’re in – due to her unique buff, Demon Mode, which makes her immune to all debuffs and ignores Effect Resistance, she counters Researcher Carrot pretty hard. Plus, with the part of her passive that makes her AoE counterattack take priority over a basic attack when she counters makes her perfect for – well, a Counter set.
People have used Rem in PvE (namely, Wyvern 13) before, due to her semi-reliable buffs and Defense Break on her s1, including the fact that she ignores Effect Resistance on Demon Mode. However, she shines most in PVP, and some would say not to use Rem in Wyvern 13 at all, as there are better choices (e.g. Sigret, Seaside Bellona, Alexa, etc). It’s still worth noting that she can be used there, though.
Top 10: Sigret
Sigret is a strong debuffer that deals more damage when enemy is debuffed. Her third skill does a lot more damage when more debuffs are stacked due to defense penetration. This is useful against high defense enemies, particularly in PvP. With the new buffs, she is now strong against tanks and revive healers due to higher defense penetration and anti revive mechanics.
She has the unhealable debuff and bleed on skill 2, which is useful against Wyvern and any bosses that heal. She does well in pro-longed battles but struggle a bit on burst damage unless you built her with a lot of critical damage.
In PvP, she is countered hard by debuff immunity. But with the 30% innate defense penetration on S3, she is actually still good against tanks.
Top 11: Hwayoung
She’s easily one of the strongest single-target damage dealers in the game. Although Hwayoung doesn’t have the ability to trigger a critical hit, she more than makes up for it with the entire rest of her kit. With her high base ATK, a boost in ATK in her passive, extra damage in her s1, barriers to keep her alive, and her s3 having an incredible damage scaling, it’s no wonder why everyone wants a copy of her.
While she isn’t usable in PvE, she’s definitely got her uses in PvP: that use being to obliterate nearly everyone and everything in sight. Hwayoung does rely on having less HP than her enemy in order to get the maximum amount of potential from her s3, but that doesn’t mean building her is harder than other single-target units.
Top 12: Kitty Clarissa
Kitty Clarissa is a support and utility character that can dual attack with your best attacker. She allows you to bring a very powerful attacker with very high attack and combo it during loveliness buff time (3 turns of guaranteed dual attack).
She can also cleanse the entire team for debuffs that are only 2 turns long. The only downside is that she doesn’t have a heal skill, so you will need a soul weaver on the team for that purpose. She can apply unhealable and reduce enemy buff by 1 turn if the situation calls for it.
With this kit, she is valuable in Abyss with the cleanse + dual attack. She can work in the Arena and Guild Wars as long as she is fast and you have a very good attacker.
Top 13: Straze
Straze is a pretty fun unit to play with! He’s solidified himself in a very nice place in the meta, due to his ability to burst down tanks super easily. He’s able to take down high-HP tanks like Ruele of Light down with his s3 very well, and his s2 removes 2 buffs off of everyone. As long as a target has less ATK than he does, he even ignores Effect Resistance! In PvP, he’s become pretty darn annoying for tanks to deal with – he straight up one-shots them. However, he is weak to bruisers, like Senya; Straze’s kind of squishy, so it’s not hard for him to get controlled, even with his Invincibility.
In PvE, he becomes a boss one-shotting unit. Straze is very high in gear requirements when it comes to being a boss-killer, though. If you get him good enough gear, though, he can actually destroy bosses like Wyvern 13, Banshee 13, Azimanik 13, etc. He’s one of those units where he needs a team built around him (similarly to Inferno Khawazu), instead of slotting him in somewhere and hoping for the best.
Top 14: Lilibet
Lilibet is great against any team that runs a reviver. She does best against Arbiter Vildred and Ruele’s in PvP. Her S1 has unable to be buffed debuff, her S2 provides some bleeds, which compliments Baiken (but new players won’t have her). If she lands bleeding on the target, she gets another turn.
Her biggest take is her S3, which makes any unit she kills with this skill rest in their tombstones forever. Now any team that can revive won’t be much of an issue. However, you need your Lilibet to do enough damage to ensure the target dies. Her soul burn multipliers are high, so that won’t be an issue.
Top 15: Luna
Her third skill has defense break and always attacks with elemental advantage. Her second skill is a passive that gives 20/30% crit chance + attack above 50% health, thus lowering the gear requirements for her to reach her full damage potential. You would only need 70% crit rate to get her to crit all the time, and 55% against water enemies if you maxed out her skill 2.
Her first skill reduces her third skill cooldown, but at a random number of turns. It also has a bit of RNG and can hit for 70%, 140% and 210% of her attack power.
This best thing is that a dual attack reduces her cooldown even faster. Taranor Guard, Kitty Clarissa or Tamarinne can really make her shine even more.
With the emergence of stronger single target attackers, she has been mostly used for PvE content such as Wyvern. Her exclusive equipment doesn’t really do much for her considering the resources you are spending.
Top 16: Lionheart Cermia
Lionheart Cermia is pretty much the AoE version of Fire Cermia, except that she cannot use her S3 right away. Her main strength lies in PvP, where she shines when enemy has dual attacks or counter attacks. As an ally gets hit, she will cleanse herself and gain fighting spirit. Once she gets to 80 fighting spirit, she can use her defense penetration AoE attack. Do keep in mind that the cleanse only happens once very 3 turns, so do not expect her to keep cleansing against a debuff heavy team.
She isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of unit, where you can throw her into any team and call it a day. Lionheart Cermia has a few quirks that you need to work around – such as being more defense-oriented and kind of held back if not taken against a team that’s heavy in counters and extra attacks. However, overall she’s still a really fun unit that people should play around with in PvP.
Top 17: Lena
Lena is a great budget speed farmer for fodders. If you don’t have any of the top farmers like Vildred Blood Blade Karin and Arbiter Vildred, Lena will fill the spot.
Her skill 3 cooldown is reset everytime an enemy is killed and then gives an attack buff after, so she can use it to 1 shot most monsters on the first battle once you get enough attack and critical damage on your gear. The only downside is that she will be weak against green monsters.
She doesn’t require much critical hit rate, since her base crit rate with skill 2 maxed is 45%. You will only need 55% from your gear, which is achievable with the sets given to you from adventurer’s path.
She can also be used against Wyvern and also in Labyrinth for fast clearing.
She is also a viable cleave member in PvP with her damage.
Top 18: General Purrgis
A great tank with attack buff and stun on his skill 3. Allies gain combat readiness when he gets hit. He can provoke with his basic skill. His kit is to make your team go faster and hit harder. He is extremely good in PvP and also Wyvern 11-13 due to his passive. There are very few characters that provide team AoE attack + AoE stun. Top tier in Guild Wars as you can afford to bring more attackers. Do keep in mind that he won’t be doing much damage and is mostly used for first/second turn PvP to mess up enemy team rotation, along with his passive.
For his Exclusive Equipment, it’s really recommended to use the “extra Combat Readiness” option.
Top 20: 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.
