I’ve decided to make an actual Heroes of Crown tier list because honestly even though there are many of them around the internet, they are all inaccurate, at best. I’ve played long enough this game, I have 5 accounts over level 150, so I have a pretty good understanding of the meta. So, If you want to know which are the best characters to invest in, especially if you want to remain F2P, keep reading!

Heroes of Crown Tier List – Elements
First things first, the heroes like in many other similar games, are divided into the following elements:
As you can see in the image below, there’s a rock-paper-scissors relationship between the elements. A counter type gets 20% extra bonus dmg.
Fire, Water, and Wind heroes cost fewer resources than Dark and Light ones, so they are much easier to get and ascend. Almost by default, Dark and Light heroes are the strongest characters that you can get on your team.
Heroes of Crown Tier List – Rarities
Other than their element, heroes are also divided into the following rarities:
Common and Epic heroes are simply materials. You are never going to use them on your actual team. Their sole purpose is to help you ascend the Legendary heroes. So, there’s no point in even ranking the heroes of these qualities. We are only going to talk about the Legendary ones.
Not all Legendary heroes are equal, obviously. They are divided into 3 ‘sub-categories’. Core, Elite, and Common ones which similar to Epic ones, their purpose is to be used as materials to ascend the better heroes.
Common Legendary heroes only have 3 skills, compared to the Elite and Core ones which have 4. And, they can only ascend to 4 stars. The Core ones have the absolute best stats among the units of their element but, they are harder to acquire. Elite heroes, on the other hand, are much easier to acquire and you are going to use them a lot, especially in the earlier stages of the game. With that out of the way, let’s see which are the core heroes of each element. Always keep in mind that regardless of element, the power ranking goes like this:
With that out of the way, let’s move to our actual rankings.

I left Chaos heroes out of the rankings on purpose. Yes, if you can somehow max them out they are SSS tier. But, good luck with that. Unless you are a really heavy spender. So, I figured there’s no point talking about these two.
