Alchemy Stars Tier List - Best Characters For All Elements

Looking for an Alchemy Stars tier list? With so many characters, it can be hard to work out exactly who's the best, especially when they are also split into four elemental categories: Fire, Forest, Thunder, and Water.

As Alchemy Stars is also a gacha game, you're unlikely to ever collect all of the characters. So that's why an Alchemy Stars tier list, like this one, is useful, as it helps you to build a team from who you have available while forming a balanced party with plenty of elemental variety.

For those who don't know, Alchemy Stars is a line-based strategy gacha where you collect and build a party of your favorite characters, then fight foes on a coloured grid. It has match-three elements, for sure, but it'd be more accurate to say it's a little like a party-based Grindstone, where you create combos by drawing movement lines on the various colours while also using powerful abilities.

So, without further ado, here's our Alchemy Stars tier list for each element.
