All rankings are subject to change, especially when new monsters and quests are added.

In accordance with GameWith, the tier list is now split into two separate rankings: Meta Rankings and Power Rankings.

  • Meta Rankings are based on a unit's viability in premiere quests. (Rogue, Colossal, Insidious, Abyss, etc.)
  • Power Rankings are based on a unit's overall general use of frequency. (Speed Clearing, Max Lucking/Farming, high damage source, ease of use, etc.)
  • Neither Ranking has priority over the other; it is strictly to differentiate between quest viability vs. general use

For rankings of non-Hatcher units, please check out the Drop Tier List.
