Dungeon Survivor 3 Tier List: S (Best Heroes)

In the S tier, we ranked the strongest heroes in the game. These characters will help you perfectly clear Exploration stages and any other gameplay modes without taking too much damage. Here are the best heroes in Dungeon Survivor 3:

  1. Sheila (Vanguard)
  2. Werner (Arcanist)
  3. Dimitri (Guard)
  4. Topia (Vanguard)
  5. Ayer (Support)
  6. Anne (Arcanist)
  7. Josephine (Support)
  8. Samael (Vanguard)
  9. Latimer (Arcanist)
  10. Roy (Vanguard)
  11. Ysera (Support)

Sheila

Sheila, the best hero in Dungeon Survivor 3

Sheila is the best damage dealer in the game, and overall the best character in Dungeon Survivor 3. Her robust single-target damage output and debuff skills make her an ideal pick for creating an unbeatable team. For the best outcome, we recommend that you use her alongside powerful support and guard characters because her HP is not that high.

  • Rank: S
  • Title: Dawn Knight
  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Class: Vanguard
  • Abilities: Physical DMG, Debuff, DPS

Werner

Werner, the best Arcanist hero in Dungeon Survivor 3

Werner is the most powerful mage hero in Dungeon Survivor 3. Not only he can deal massive single-target damage, but his Petrify skill effect can immobilize and weaken enemies for 2 seconds, giving your team a huge advantage in battles. His low HP makes him vulnerable so you should pair him with tank heroes before entering difficult areas.

  • Rank: S
  • Title: Treasure Hill
  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Class: Arcanist
  • Abilities: Magic DMG, DoT

Dimitri

Dimitri, the best Tank hero in Dungeon Survivor 3

Dimitri is an excellent character to have on your team, both for his tanking and damage output capabilities. He is the best tank hero in Dungeon Survivor 3 as his skills can recover a large portion of HP, armor, and Magic Shield for his allies while also stunning enemies.

You should equip him strong with physical attack gear to increase his damage output even more, making him the perfect hero for difficult dungeon areas.

  • Rank: S
  • Title: Ancient Barrier
  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Class: Guard
  • Abilities: Physical DMG, Debuff, Taunt

Topia

Topia, DS3

Topia is another excellent damage dealer in Dungeon Survivor 3. He is very powerful, as his first skill can deal massive amounts of damage after reaching 10 stacks (the second effect will trigger the 500% additional damage). The downside is that it takes a while to reach those 10 stacks, so he is better used for longer battles such as boss fights.

  • Rank: S
  • Title: Desert Swordsman
  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Class: Vanguard
  • Abilities: Physical DMG, DPS

Ayer

Ayer

Ayer is the best support hero in the game. She has an impressive kit with abilities that can recover HP and armor for her allies, weaken enemies by reducing their AoE damage, and block their dodge ability, making it easier for her team to win the battle. Her low HP makes her vulnerable so pair her with tank heroes before entering difficult areas.

  • Rank: S
  • Title: Sandsnake
  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Class: Support
  • Abilities: Physical DMG, Buff, Debuff

Anne
