Eternal Return Tier List (August. 2022)

Today I am going to write about a complete package of entertainment. It is a game that has combined different genres and this combination gives you a great experience. You can see all the characters on the verge of conquering each other. This is a big game as it has amalgamated the three genres; MOBA, Battle Royale, and Survival. Basically, this blend is the reason to deliver an exhilarating and irresistible experience.

This game consists of a number of characters, each character possesses different skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Here the question is which character will work best for you? If you want to know the detailed and authentic answer then read this Eternal Return Tier List and trust me you will not regret doing it.

Getting Familiar with Eternal Return

Today, I am giving you a piece of very secret advice, which I got once from someone to whom I am very thankful now. If you want to become a pro in any game, and if you are passionate about it, then the first thing you must do is to know about the game. Before starting to play any of the games, sit back and do some research on it; its characters, methodologies, weapons, maps, etc. By doing this your gameplay will reflexively smooth.

But wait! What is the need to do research when you are blessed with our website? There is a team of professional writers who perform the research part for you and it is 100% authentic. We let you know about the game, its characters, and much more… What else do you want buddy?

For people who are new to this game this introduction will be very helpful, and if you have already played it before then still it will do wonders for you because now you have both the things; personal experience and extra information. Eternal return is an assortment of characters with different strategies, mechanics, and aesthetics. It is an online multiplayer game so you can enjoy it with your squad.

You can choose the test subject which you think will suit your personality and playing style. It is up to you whether you want to play this game with your team or solo. Both of the choices have their own pros, cons, and adventures. I will recommend going with both depending on your mood.

The characters in Eternal Return are known as test subjects, each having a unique playing style and ability. I have made it easier for you to decide which one to choose, by ranking each one of them on Eternal Return Tier List. The thing which I like the most about this game is that it does not demand any extra or high requirements, so its accessibility is very high. You will notice different upgrades in this game most commonly character updates, this tier list is based on the recent update. I think now is the best time to start ranking the character (test subjects).

Eternal Return Characters Ranking Criteria

This tier list is subject to change. Diversity is always welcomed on our website’s top-tier list. Hence, we understand that in a diverse environment there are many people of different mindsets, so you are allowed to get involved in a debate that in your point of view a particular ranking is incorrect. But the criticizing is prohibited because it makes no sense as I mentioned earlier that this tier list is subjective.

Like every other game, this game also has characters that are different and unique in their own way. If we look into real life, even then people are not the same. Everyone possesses different qualities(good and bad), skills, mindset, operating power, and much more. Likewise, the characters in this same are distinctive and impressive in their own way.

If I have placed a character on the D tier, it does not mean I hate that character, but the purpose is that he is not that competitive relatively. You can try using the characters of all the tiers to get an experience by yourselves, and do let me know in the comment section below that how you feel about them.

I have broken this tier list into five categories; S, A, B, C, and D tiers. The ranking will move from best to worst. It means that the legendary characters will be ranked on the S tier, the best ones on the A tier, the ones that are good but not top-notch will be placed on the B tier, and the characters who are below average will be seen on the C tier, and lastly, on the D tier, I will place those characters who are least helpful for getting an upper hand in the game.

If you are still confused then in order to provide you a clear picture of the ranking criteria of the Eternal return tier list by explaining more about the tiers under their headings.

S Tier

The S-tier characters of Eternal Return

The S-Tier of Eternal Return tier list introduces all the top-notch test subjects (characters). They possess extraordinary skills and abilities. They are capable of taking down any enemy easily. So, are you ready to know who are they? Continue reading…

Jackie

Jackie is a skillful and tremendous character with a lot of weapon options. Her skills are best in her own way which allows her to get an upper hand on the enemy. She is witty and acquiescent. I was amazed by her quality of swaying weapons two times and as a result, her target starts bleeding. At that time she has the advantage of defeating the opponent as he will take some time to heal.

Her adrenaline skills allow her to move faster for a specific time period, and during this time if she uses her Hack & Slash skill then her HP can be restored and she will get a bonus too. Her other top skills include leaping strike, chainsaw murderer, and Bloodfest (passive). Other than that she has some unbelievable weapon skills that allow her to become the best player, which includes Cloak and Dagger, Parry, Berserk, and Dual Sword Rampage.

All of her skills and weapon abilities are worth appreciating which convinced me to rank her on the S tier of the Eternal Return tier list.

Zahir

Zahir is a very adorable and delightful character. He too has multiple weapons to choose from which totally depends according to your choice and playing style. He gives you an advantage of winning in any kind of gameplay; solo, duo, or in a team. Do you know the reason behind that? It is so clear that he causes a lot of damage to his foes, and has an incredible speed-reducing ability.

Smokescreen and Caltrops are his weapon skills. Zahir’s other top skills include Narayanastra, Gandiva, Vayvayastra, bhargavastra, and the eye of Azrael. Her strengths can never be ignored. He can attack his enemies from a long-range which is a plus point. If you are a pro in this game then it would be a very good choice to opt for Zahir because you must be well aware of his abilities to make the most of his character.

Another reason which makes him a top player is that he has one of the highest DPS among the other characters and his strong ability moves aid him in knocking down the enemies.

Xiukai

I am amazed and a bit disappointed that why Xiukai is not popular despite having outstanding skillset. He possesses a very interesting character. If you want him to become energetic all the time then food is the only thing you can offer him. Cloak and Dagger, and shadow steps are his weapon skills. His other skills include Juggernaut chef, burnt to a crisp, work it off, heavy meal, and lost in the sauce.

His one attack that is most effective and hard in this game is burnt to a crisp. This attack gives the highest damage than ever. And, if we talk about the R skill then it can be used to directly kill your enemies. His attacks are also long-ranged like other players ranked on the S tier of the Eternal Return tier list.

Aya

Aya is one of the most demanded and best Eternal Return characters who also offer multiple weapon options and different playing styles too. Her top skills include double shot, steady shot, moving turn, black cartridge, and Aya’s Justice. Her weapon skills are moving to reload, overheating, and sniper.

Her weapon sniper assists her to target the enemies from a very long range which is an advantage for her. She has the ability to defend herself from the enemy’s attack by creating a wall in front of her. By defending her she can prevent the huge loss of HP. One thing I like the most about this Eternal Return character is that she can even move while shooting her foes.

You can experience a blend of feelings while playing as Aya. She is highly recommended as this character will give you a great sense of enjoyment.

Fiora

There are so many reasons to adore this character. The most attractive skill that I find in her is that slaughtering animals is very easy for her. She can do this task like no other character. Fiora’s powerful kit allows her to kill the enemies by damaging them so badly. Her playing style is very effective as well.

Some of her skills are Garde, March & Rompre, Attaque & compose, Fente, and Touche. Her weapon skills are Quick cut, Parry, and Shadow stab. With one of her skills, she can reduce the movement speed of the enemies, and not only this but at the same time, the opponent will be damaged too. She is definitely an S-tier character ranked on the Eternal Return tier list.

Cathylsol

Cathy is a character with ultimately legendary skills that include Under the knife, emergency surgery, suture, amputation, and a double bypass. If we talk about her weapon skills then Cloak & Dagger it is. She has different builds that include vibroblade Cathy build, and auto-attack Cathy build. Items that are needed for vibroblade Cathy build are listed below:

  • Weapon: Vibroblade
  • Chest: Optical Camouflage Suit

Aso, she has outstanding damaging skills from which the opponent is afraid. Another thing that makes her a strong character is that she has high SP relatively because she didn’t consume it too much. So, she is one of the best characters ranked on the Eternal Return tier list.

Luke

Luke has left an unforgettable impression on most of the people using him as a character. He is an exceptional character may be because of his outstanding skills or appreciable strengths. I will recommend you to try this amazing character for sure. Let’s see what are her skills and weapon skills.

So, some of Luke’s skills are clean sweep, elbow grease, dirty work, pressure work, and neat ‘n’ tidy, and his weapon skills are in full swing. There are several builds of this character that are; Luke build with a spy umbrella and Luke build with a mallet. The items needed for Luke to build with spy are as follows:

The best thing about this character is the powerful kit. Also, the animation of this character is top-notch which is also one of the reasons to enjoy playing with this character. Like some other S-tier characters he also has the ability to attack the enemies from long range which means this character is a complete package.

A Tier

best ER characters
The A-tier characters of Eternal Return

The characters placed on the A tier are outstanding but their minor weaknesses convinced me to rank them on the A tier. These weaknesses are not the ones that can be pointed out but can usually be ignored. The A-tier characters can give enormous damage to their foes.

Adela

Adela is a powerful Norwegian lady to dominates Lumia Island and this is possible as she also has the skills of a long-ranged character. She is one of those characters ranked on the Eternal Return tier list who know how to defend themselves when the situation is going out of hand. Her SP is incredible as she does not require as many SP items as the other characters to survive. This point in her character attracts many people to her.

It is her unique skills and personality that make her powerful. Players feel very good and energetic while playing this character. Her other top skills are Hand of corruption, depraved prayer, mania, plague, and Stigma.

The rankings assigned by me are not only based on the research. But, I myself have experienced playing all the characters that I am ranking. Apart from that, the professionals of our team have also analyzed tits and bits of very character.

Adriana

All the enemies are warned to be really careful of this A-tier character named “Adriana”. Because she possesses amazing skills which include flamethrower, oil slick, fire escape, cocktail party, pyromaniac, and her weapon skill is a smokescreen. Adriana’s build is the build for this character. If we talk about weapons then she has the following weapons:

  • Smoke Bomb
  • Incendiary Bomb
  • David Sling
  • The grenade of Antioch
  • Ruthenium Marble

And, for Adriana build you need the following items:

  • Weapon: Smoke Bomb (Throw)

Hart

Hart is ranked on the A tier of the Eternal Return tier list because of the following skills:

  • Delay
  • Overdrive
  • Flanger
  • Peacemaker
  • Feedback
  • Love &… is her weapon skill.

The build of this character also proves that she is an A-tier character. Stairway to Heaven Hart build, Teen Spirit Hart build, Purple Haze Hart build (skill amp build). The following items are needed for this skill:

  • Weapon: Stairway to Heaven
  • Chest: Rocker’s Jacket

Now, I can bet that you will agree with me that the A tier was the best category to place Hart.

Emma

Emma is a magical character with lots of amazing skills. She can literally damage her foes with anything. Yes, anything means anything! Be it a card, coin, or even her hat. Isn’t it amazing? But, this is possible only when she utilizes some of her appreciable skills such as dove dealer, hat trick, Bunnymorph, change, cheer up, and her weapon skill is Caltrops.

She is definitely one of the best characters ranked on the Eternal Return tier list but due to some of the minor ranking, she was not able to make it to the S tier. Emma Fuhma Shuriken Build, Emma Fuhma Dobok Build, and Full crit Emma Build are some other builds. The following items are required for Emma Fuhma Shuriken Build:

  •      Weapon: Fuhma Shuriken
  •      Chest: Optical Camouflage Suit
  •      Head: Crystal Tiara
  •      Arm: Bracelet of Skadi
  •      Legs: Bucephalus
  •      Accessories: Uchiwa

For Emma Fuhma dobok build you need:

  • Weapon: Fuhma Shuriken
  •      Chest: Dragon Dobok
  •      Head: Imperial Crown
  •      Arm: Sheath of Shah Jahan
  •      Legs: Bucephalus
  •      Accessories: Uchiwa

And, the items needed for the Full crit Emma build are:

  • Weapon: Flechette Shuriken

  •      Head: Crystal Tiara
  •      Arm: Creed of the knight
  •      Legs: Bucephalus
  •      Accessories: Schrodinger Box

Emma gives extra damage to the enemies which makes her stand out as an Eternal Return character. She is on a level below the upper tier’s character may be because of her less mana generation speed. Otherwise, she is also a very popular character.

Bernice

Bernice provides you with dominance over Luma island. Yes, it is true! This is possible because of his emphatic and potent personality. Legahot, foothold trap, falconry, explosive bola, and buckshot are some of his top skills. And, if we talk about the weapon skills then sniper it is. Bernice has two builds in total; one is Polaris 4-Zoner build which requires the following items:

  • Weapon: Polaris
  • Chest: Optical Camouflage Suit
  • Head: Motorcycle Helmet
  • Arm: Radar
  • Leg: White Rhinos
  • Accessory: Schrodinger’s Box

And the second build, which is a Life steal build with Tac-50 you will need the following items:

  • Weapon: Tac-50
  • Chest: Butler’s Suit
  • Head: Tactical OPS Helmet
  • Arm: Radar
  • Leg: White Rhinos
  • Accessory: Laced Quiver

It is highly recommended to master this character as it is a new one in the game so many people are not properly aware of his skills, strengths, and weaknesses. So, you have a pretty good chance to take advantage of this unawareness, and give a boon to the opponents.

He has an interesting skill or you can call it strength as well that he can use his one weapon as two weapons. Sounds strange? There is no lie in it, he has the ability to turn his sniper into a shotgun with the help of some specific attacks. He is definitely a threatening and deadly player.

One weakness of Bernice that bothers the players is that he does not offer various weapon options. But his other strengths overpower this weakness of him so there is nothing to worry about.

B Tier

nice ER characters
The B-tier characters of Eternal Return

The test subjects of the B tier are likable with teensy-weensy lacking which stops them from matching the quality of the S and A tier characters. In order to make the most out of these characters, you have to ensure that you are maintaining them properly. If handled correctly, then there are high chances of them being successful in shattering their enemies.

Hyunwoo

Hyunwoo is a very interesting character with various skills. He is not the best but still considered a good character ranked on the Eternal Return tier list as you can have an upper hand on your foes if you use this character correctly. Stomping foot, bluff, first attack, haymaker, and dogfight are his skills. Whereas, he has two weapon skills that are; uppercut and quick spin.

Some of his skills are the charm of despair, the charm of the prophecy, the charm of the nomad, five omens, and three calamities. Rain of arrows and caltrops are his weapon skills.

C Tier

below average ER characters
The C-tier characters of Eternal Return

The C-tier characters are neither worst nor good, they lie somewhere between this. They possess average qualities that cannot be helpful most of the time but works occasionally. Try to get rid of these characters ASAP and replace them with the S and A tier characters ranked on the Eternal Return tier list.

Shoichi

I have mixed reviews about Shoichi. Whenever I played this character sometimes it was very good playing it and the other time I was disappointed. But I can not deny the fact that I had a great experience while playing this character. Good faith, bottom line, risky business, ruthless, and phony deals are some of his skills that you should master to make the most out of this character. Once you get to know about Shoichi completely then things will get easier for you.

I am ranking him in the C tier because it will be really hard for beginners to understand this character’s strategies and skills. Also, he does not offer various weapon options which is not a good thing as well and can be considered his weakness. But one thing that is good about this character is that he is very strong in terms of health stats so enemies find it difficult to kill her.

Lenox

Lenox is a below-average character. I know that many readers here will not agree with me but there is no need to be offensive as we can have a debate on it by presenting our own views. I will calmly analyze your point of view and the same goes for you. Because tier lists are not made to spread hate but it is all about one’s opinions.

I do not find it interesting playing this character as relatively she has very lesser build options. Not only this however if I look at the weapons then in this area also there are not enough choices. I had to spend a lot of time understanding her skills and found it very irritating. Then I finally decided to place her on the C tier of the Eternal Return tier list.

D Tier

weakest ER characters
The D-tier characters of Eternal Return

You can get to know about the weakest characters here. They require a lot of effort to give an average performance. Imagine when this much effort is required for only average performance then what will be done when you want the performance at its peak? I think that you can choose them only when all the other options are closed, otherwise you must go with the best ones obviously.

Echion

Echion is not a competitive character. I will not recommend this character as I can not assure you win if opt for this one. Sometimes the game depends completely on your luck. And, if someone plays as Echion and accidentally wins the game then I will not say that all the credit goes to the player and the character but this will happen because the person playing the game is lucky.

Echion is a weak character because relatively his communication skills are not too strong. Other than that, he does not have the ability to execute and think about the strategies, which makes it very difficult to win. Because, when there is no proper strategy behind the attacks so, in this case, how can we expect to take over the enemy? It is almost impossible to have an upper hand on your foes while playing as Echion. If you want to try this character then do give it a try but mark my words, it will not be worth it!

Sissela

If you are playing Sissela for the first time then I bet you cannot handle her. It is very important to understand her strategies, skills, abilities, builds, weapons, etc. It shows that she possesses a very convoluted character. You lot of time will be wasted in understanding Sisella.

However, I will give you some of the information related to her in order to make things easy for you. Also, if you want to know more about Sisella then do let me know in the comment section below then I will create a separate article in which complete information related to her will be provided.

There are three buildings of Sisella which are; Shuriken Build with Azure Dagger, Fuhma Shuriken Build, and Auto-Attack Throw Build. For Shuriken Build with Azure Dagger, you will need the following items:

  • Weapon: Azure Dagger
  • Chest: Sunset Armor
  • Head: Imperial Burgonet
  • Arm: Draupnir
  • Legs: Straitjacket Sneakers
  • Accessories: White Crane Fan

For the second build that is Fuhma Shuriken Build you will require:

  • Weapon: Fuhma Shuriken
  • Chest: Amazoness Armor
  • Head: Imperial Burgonet
  • Arm: Draupnir
  • Legs: EOD Boots
  • Accessories: Buddha Sarira

And, for the last build Auto-Attack Throw Build you will need:

  • Weapon: David’s Sling
  • Chest: Dragon Dobok
  • Head: Motorcycle Helmet
  • Arm: Cube Watch
  • Legs: White Rhinos
  • Accessories: Schrödinger’s Box

If you are a beginner, you should never start with this character because things will get very complication for you. It will take a lot of time to master his skills and abilities as these are very hard to understand.
