March 14, 2024: We've added Morrian to our Guardian Tales tier list.

If you’ve never touched the game before, then our Guardian Tales tier list will help you decide which heroes to add to your roster. Early on this adorable RPG positions you as a young knight out to rescue a princess. Cue some engaging hack-and-slash combat, and plenty of evil goblins to vanquish.

You don’t do it alone though. Like any good gacha RPG, it's all about compiling a team of elite warriors to help you on - but some are better than others. Not only are we dishing out Guardian Tales character ranking below, but we're also going to detail the reroll process in case you're not happy with your first few pulls.

As you can see, there are plenty of characters to choose from. Those in the S tier are there based on their star-rating, which comprises their attacking and defensive ability, as well as their base stats.

You start the game by selecting either the male knight or female knight, though their stats are identical, so worry not. Your next companion is Peggy, who you unlock naturally through story progression. From there, it comes down to quest progression and sheer luck on the game’s gacha spins. You’ll want to be aiming for characters in the S and A tier to join your team, as they’ll give you the best in-game performance.

If it’s tier lists you’re looking for, you’re in the right place. Why not check out our Genshin Impact tier list to help you choose which character to main? We’ve also got a Raid: Shadow Legends tier list and an AFK Arena tier list.

Who is the rarest Guardian Tales hero?

You should know that you cannot unlock all Guardian Tales characters through story progression. Of course, some characters in the lower rungs of the list will unlock as you progress, but others are harder to unlock.

The rarest character in Guardian Tales at the moment is Model Employee Parvati. They’re the newest warrior in the game, only joining the roster in January 2022. Equally, Orca is strong enough to live up to the hype, boasting solid base level stats, and the ability to upgrade to a five-star hero.

Elsewhere, the Executive Red Hood Arabelle is very hard to get your hands on. Once more, this character isn’t unlockable via the story, meaning you’ll have to shell out in-game currency to net her. That can be hit-or-miss, as Guardian Tales runs on gacha mechanics for its character unlocks - so the rarer the character, the harder you’ll find it is to unlock them.

There are four character types in Guardian Tales, all with different strengths and weaknesses. They are Warrior, Tanker, Ranged, and Support.

The titles are quite self-explanatory: Warriors are best with melee weapons, Tankers can charge through enemies to squash them into oblivion, Ranged characters work best with bow and arrow, and Support teammates are there to heal and boost team stats.

In a team of four characters, you’ll want to strike a balance between these types as much as possible. Since the starter Knight character is a Warrior type, you might want to look at the other types seen below to help choose who you’ll go for.

How do I get more Guardian Tales heroes?

  • On the main game hub, tap the 'Summons' tab in the bottom-right side of the screen
  • Under the 'Hero' tab, you can browse which characters are new in 'Summons'
  • Below that are three options: a single Summon, ten Summons, or a Daily Discount Summon using Gems
  • Tap your preferred option, then you’ll see a cutscene with a drone delivering a box with your new hero - just be sure to sign for it!

As mentioned, Guardian Tales is a gacha game at heart - and as such, the Summon mechanic is the best way to unlock characters in the game. Of course, you can unlock some fellow fighters by progressing through story missions and meeting new allies organically, but if you want the best of the best, you’ll have to take your chances with the Summon menu.

The Guardian Tales tier list continues to grow.

How do I perform a Guardian Tales reroll?

  • When you boot up Guardian Tales, head to the 'Settings' menu in the top-right corner, then click 'Account Settings'
  • Log out, then start over again with a guest account
  • Once you’ve completed the tutorial and first main quest, you can try out the summon mechanic once more
  • If you’re happy with the new rolls, then you’ll need to create a new account to save your progress. If not, then you can repeat the progress until your roster is up to scratch!

If you aren’t over the moon with the results of your summons and you feel like starting over again, then rerolling can be a useful option to give you another shot at unlocking the best Guardian Tales heroes. Notably, there isn’t an in-game option to reroll and start over, so you have to do it a bit more mechanically.

How do I keep up with Guardian Tales?

If you like the look of Guardian Tales and want to stay on top of new characters, announcements, and events, then we've got all the links and accounts you'll need to keep an eye on.

Firstly, you should bookmark the official website, whose news section will keep you updated on all things Guardian Tales. Equally, you should follow the game's Twitter, subscribe to the YouTube channel, and join the Discord server. They'll all help you link up with fellow players, and find out the newest information first.

Back in October, there was a Halloween-themed community event. While that's sadly over, you should often check the Guardian Tales Twitter, where you can participate in community voting games, to unlock special in-game rewards.

They often provide these great chances for some free chests, so there's no harm in taking part! In fact, a recent live stream teased on the Guardian Tales Twitter account shared a bunch of new codes, so it's definitely worth keeping up!

And that's about it for the Guardian Tales tier list for now. If you're just starting out, be sure to check out our Guardian Tales codes guide for some excellent freebies. And if you're looking for something new, we've devised a way to play the Harry Potter Magic Awakened game a little early in this Harry Potter Magic Awakened beta installation guide.

If you're a fan of gacha games like Guardian Tales, we've got plenty of other guides for you as well. Check out our Seven Knights 2 tier list for the big 3D RPG, and our Cookie Run: Kingdom tier list for something with a little bit more cartoony charm just like this one. There's an Awaken: Chaos Era tier list itching for a more western fantasy approach.
