Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent Hero Tier List

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 their 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.

But Viola isn’t just about weakening enemies, she extends those debuffs and can even drain HP and SP from enemies. Her attacks hit multiple times, but managing her skills carefully is key due to her low SP pool. Still, with her diverse abilities, Viola remains a game-changing hero you’ll want on your team.

Best Apothecaries Class Hero – Primrose

Primrose stands out as one of the best heroes in the game. She’s versatile, excelling in dealing with damage, breaking defenses, and supporting the team. Her attacks hit multiple times, which is handy against different enemies.

What makes Primrose stand out is her knack for making buffs and debuffs last longer, giving your team an edge. While she might not have an ATK buff in her support skills, her overall abilities make her a crucial asset. With her varied skills and impact on battles, Primrose is a hero you’ll want by your side.

Best Cleric Class Hero – Ophilia

Ophilia‘s among the best heroes for some great reasons. She’s an awesome Healer and Buffer, keeping your team healthy with both gradual and strong healing. Her attacks even help break down enemies.

But using Ophilia’s skills needs careful energy management since they use up a lot. And to unlock her best abilities, especially her revival skill, you’ll need to push her to the limit. Still, Ophilia’s unique healing and support make her a key player for your team, especially in tough fights.

Final Thoughts
