This iteration of the GamePress Tier List aims to pick out the most versatile units who excel in an element-neutral, single-target environment. Those who thrive in multi-target environments such as Imperial Onslaught have a + next to their name specifying that in the right combat situation, they effectively move up a tier.
Objective criteria include: skills, stats, damage output, buff magnitude, buff duration, skill charge, weapon type, combo chains, and status resistances.
A number of assumptions guide these selections, some of which are ambiguous. It’s easy to assume that Slayer bonuses won’t activate in the Phraeganoth raid, but harder to assume that a player can consistently land finishing blows in Imperial Onslaught. Buff conditions and uptimes can be similarly random and chaotic. Therefore, assumptions around the optimal player are avoided in favor of more realistic estimates in an effort to keep the Tier List relevant to players of all skill levels. At the moment, damage is valued over survivability due to the timed nature of raids and quests.
