Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent Hero Tier List for September 2022
This Tier List should only be taken as a reference because different strategies and processes can yield different results for players. This tier list is divided into categories of S, A, and B.
- S Tier: This tier contains very strong characters which can be seen from the uniqueness of the abilities, and contribution to the team, it is highly recommended to use these characters.
- A Tier: This tier contains fairly strong characters, but is not as strong as tier S, because their strengths and skills are fairly standard.
- B Tier: This tier contains characters that are fairly mediocre because their strengths and skills don’t have a strong impact on the battle. But when you upgrade the character, it’s still worth using.
Primrose is at the very top of the tier list for one simple reason: There is no buff/debuff character like her in the entire game. Her debuffing and buffing capabilities are unmatched. She is a Dark element user, and for allies on her team, she is the strongest player. For enemies, she is the worst nightmare.
Viola is another great character with the potential to be the best. Her Fire element powers provide her with some really useful magic, and her ability to break the enemies’ defenses is invaluable.
Sofia is a pure shredder when it comes to damage. Her DPS is through the roof, and she can take down powerful foes in single attacks.
Theo is an amazing character for one sole reason: None can ever hope to match his healing abilities. He has some fat heals in his arsenal, and can prove to be the clutching factor in several battles. He is a Lightning element user.
Other 5-star characters are up in this list as well because they are innately more powerful with better stats than 4-star and 3-star characters. Among the 4-star characters, Trish is the best due to her being a warrior with tankiness, as that provides her with both HP and damage. Besides that, she has got some good breaking stats, making her a great choice till players can get their hands on a good 5-star character.
Diego and Eunice
As for 3-star characters, they are innately worse and have bad stats, but the ones at the top of the 3-star spectrum, like Diego and Eunice, can be used if they are buffed properly in the proper party setup. Besides these two, there aren’t many characters who are exceptional in the 3-star category, but they can work out till players get their hands on 4 and 5-star characters.
Overall Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent has a sizeable roster of characters. All of them are unique, but some are just better than others. The S-tier characters who are at the top of the Octopath Traveler food chain can use some tweaks to keep their power in check, but most of them are hard to get, so the power they have is indeed worth the price that players have to pay to get them.
The real balance changes need to happen in the 4-star and 3-star character categories. Some characters have the potential to become great, but need a significant push in terms of stats, while some are overperforming and need to be brought down. There is no doubt that Square Enix will look into this, and ensure that balance is maintained throughout the roster.
