Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have any S-Tier heroes. Am I doomed?

While S-Tier heroes are powerful, the game is far from unbeatable without them. A-Tier and B-Tier heroes can still be incredibly effective when properly geared and strategically paired.

Why is Milia in C-Tier? Her buffs seem great!

Her buffing abilities are definitely helpful, she lacks the raw damage output to be truly effective on her own. She works best when paired with strong DPS heroes who can capitalize on her buffs.

Who should I pair Aether with?

She thrives in teams that can maximize her critical hits and attack buffs. Look for heroes like Lydia and Elrond who benefit from high crit rate, or consider support heroes like Gilda and Hypnos who can keep her alive and deal damage.

Will this Whisper of Shadow tier list still be relevant in future?

Future updates and balance changes can definitely shake things up. Our Whisper of Shadow tier list might not be perfect, but it should give you a good starting point for navigating the ever-changing meta.

That’s all for today! Remember, the real power lies in your own knowledge, strategy, and the heroes you choose to wield.
