Spoiled for choice in Idle Awakening? Well, you’ve come to the right place. In our Idle Awakening tier list, we rank all of the characters into tiers, S is the best, and D is the worst. We’ll keep it updated as often as new characters drop, and alongside balance changes. So, bookmark this page and check back for reference.

As the title might suggest, Idle Awakening is an idle gacha RPG where your squad is doing most of the heavy lifting. It’s up to you to pick your favorite heroes from a huge range of colorful characters and set them to their task of carving a swatch of destruction through the monster population. That’ll teach them for getting in your way.

You can find Idle Awakening available on Google Play. Building more RPG team rosters? Take a look at our Eternal EvolutionDear, Ella, and Memento Mori tier lists.

Idle Awakening Tier List FAQ

Now that you’ve seen the tiers and characters, let’s tackle questions.

How do Our Tiers Work?

Our tiers run from best to worst and rank the general usefulness of the characters.

  • S Tier: The must-have characters. If you can get hold of one, don’t hesitate. Prioritize grabbing these ones if you can.
  • A Tier: These are excellent performers and will make a great addition to your lineup. They might not be as desirable as the S Tier, but they’re definitely worth your time.
  • B Tier: Solid characters that can pull their weight. They won’t hold you back but are probably worth swapping out if something better comes along. 
  • C Tier: Underachievers who won’t hold up terribly well, unless you have them for a specific use.
  • D Tier: Practically useless. Avoid like the plague.

How Did We Decide on the Rankings?

We try and draw from a number of sources when composing tier lists. We draw lists from our own gameplay, but the aim is to try and create lists that cater to as broad a range of playstyles as possible. For that reason, we also like to draw information from other players’ rankings within the game community. 

When Do We Update Our Idle Awakening Tier List?

We try and update the list regularly to reflect new character release and rebalances. For that reason, it’s best to check back from time to time if you want to know the latest ranking.  Keep an eye on the official website for news on updates.
