Dragalia Lost Tier List - Best Characters

Update: Gala Neven and Gala Gatov were added on November 28. Following a translation error, Gala Neven has been moved to B-tier for Dominion battles pending further testing. Gala Gatov is ranked S-tier and considered a meta pick for the Legend Jaldabaoth fight as an alternative to Gala Leon.

The Dragalia Lost tier list has been tossed on its head following a big shift in end-game content. In the past, things were pretty consistent. Gala characters like Cleo and Mym used to rule the roost, oftentimes appearing in content they weren't elementally advantageous over. Lathna and Alex both destroyed with a broken Poison Punish mechanic, and Ieyasu's Bleed procs were just too good to pass up.

As of the game's third anniversary, however, following a shift in battle content, multiple system reworks, and new additions, things are looking very different. Characters that initially were laughed off as practically useless have become increasingly valuable and worthy of investment. If you're looking to dive back into Dragalia Lost or give it a good first shot, our Dragalia Lost tier list will tell you who to look out for.

Dragalia Lost Tier List - Best Characters for Agito Boss Battles

Though the tiering may look like it's suggesting characters like Yukata Cleo and Summer Alex aren't worth using, this couldn't be further from the truth. For the sake of clarity and keeping things clean, we've separated adventurers with less tried and tested kits. Characters in the A, C, and E tiers can be considered as being in the tier above. They're likely strong enough to be there. But we've shifted them down to suggest they're not seen quite so often in their respective fights.

The best way to interpret this Dragalia Lost tier list is to remember that there are far more adventurers in the game than are listed above. Those that make it into the tier list are all worth your investment if Agito boss battles are on your to-do list.

Any that aren't simply won't fare well in these battles. Whether they'll struggle to resist the status effects the boss of their element puts out or just can't deal or take enough damage, they're more likely to cause co-op groups to disband before the battle begins. People look at your team in a lobby. If they don't see meta characters, they leave. And the adventurers above are the ones people want to see in these lobbies for consistent clears.

Dragalia Lost Tier List - Best Characters for Sinister Dominion Boss Battles

Tier Adventurer
SGala Gatov, Gala Laxi, Gala Leonidas, Halloween Lowen, Yukata Cassandra, Kimono Elisanne
AHalloween Sylas, Summer Alex
BGala Neven, Humanoid Jupiter, Euden, Faris, Naveed, Gala Laxi, Nobunaga, Student Maribelle

Once the time comes for you to challenge the Rise of the Dark Dominion boss battles, the Dragalia Lost tier list shifts a little. In reality, it reverses. Some top-tier characters from the Agito days become less valuable, giving the lower-tier characters more chance to shine. It's another reason why it's worth reiterating that any character on the tier list today is worth investing in. If they're not the best in one set of challenges, they most likely are in the other.


Some, like Aoi and Incognito Nefaria, only show their worth in this part of the game and won't really offer much in the other. As such, they're worth investing in if you don't have any characters who cross over into both tier lists, but they won't represent the best value.

When Is the Next Dragalia Lost Character Banner?

Right now, a Water Focus showcase banner is in effect. It offers rate-ups on characters like Regina, Sandalphon, and Gabriel: most of which rank fairly high on the Dragalia Lost tier list. They're a good choice for the latest Time Attack Challenge event as well.

And that's it for the Dragalia Lost tier list right now. As more content, mana spirals, and adventurers are introduced, we'll update these tier lists with any new developments. With the core focus now being on the Rise of the Dark Dominion, it's safe to assume any new character will be designed with these fights in mind.

Any tweaks to existing characters, however, will see them become worthwhile additions to the Agito Dragalia Lost tier list to help speed new and returning players through the game's earlier sections. They're great avenues for kitting characters out.
