    I made a comprehensive Eddie tier list!

    After a few hours of sitting and going through each Eddie, I made a tier list of which ones are good and which ones are crap. I used the Gauntlet ranking system, meaning they're ranked from God to F. I will update this guide with each passing balance patch, and hopefully it'll shed some light on the strengths and weaknesses of these Eddies.

    Don't be afraid to add your own comments in the thread, and perhaps you guys may sway some of my opinions. However, this is my tier list, and therefore my opinion; this isn't fact. Take it with a grain of salt.

    I figured it may be helpful for those reading if I explained what each tier represents for the Eds, so I will just quickly leave that here.

    God: All around great. Can perform well in every area of the game and doesn't require a huge setup.
    SSS: Extremely powerful, but has glaring issues that prevent them from being in God tier. Might excel in multiple areas but fall short in others.
    SS: Very good. Can hold up well in one area, only decent in others.
    S: Great. Does well in one area, falls apart in others or doesn't stack up enough in others to warrant being in SS.
    AAA: Good. Can work at lower levels of play in certain areas, but will be outperformed by other Eds at their specialties.
    AA: Okay. Can be used for newer players, but often requires a lot of assistance to work well and has drastic downsides.
    A: Alright. Definitely usable, but falls short in a lot of areas outside of their specialty.
    B: Nothing special. Can be used for newer players, but should be ditched upon grabbing an Ed in a higher tier. Serves no purposes in the current meta for any area.
    C: Underwhelming. Simply cannot hold up against anything else, and are outperformed by the base Eddie. Good for novelty or certain challenges, but generally not a good choice.
    D: Poor performance. These Eddies not only fail in the current meta, but can't even do their own specialty well. Their skills need revamping in order to even have a chance at being okay.
    E: Bad. These Eds don't even really have a specialty. They're just bad. They shouldn't even be considered when you are looking for an Ed to lead your team into battle.
    F: The absolute worst. The Eddies in this tier have absolutely nothing to benefit from. They are a joke and should be sacrificed upon receiving duplicates immediately.

    I hope that clears things up if the tiers are confusing.

    POM Eddie should be in higher tier IMHO. All Eddies who can beat FFE, Killer Prime combo should be at least in SS tier.

    Nice and I agree with most of the high level, though agree POM should be a level or two higher (S or SS).

    Down lower you could maybe argue a level or two for many (Id have navigator a bit higher purely as he is still good on the grind, SoL higher than Storm etc), but on the whole a nice effort man. Thanks!

    Great list man! Personally, I was expecting to see Navigator slightly higher, and Prowler a little lower. I tried him out yesterday and he's weak as anything, which is really disappointing for a 5* Gunner. Either way though, great work! \m/

    I disagree with many of the B and C classifications. Several of those Eds should be higher..... but then I guess it depends on what you think is important. I think it's incorrect to PUT Aces High and Navigator at the same level as Shadow Wicker Ed or Mystic Ed (two of the far weaker Eds) .. and Holy Smoke Ed is much better than anything in level C.

    Mystic and Shadow wicker are at the same level as Mummy Ed. Heck they do roughly the same damage - and it's also magic damage. And Bass Ed.. does about the same damage as Mystic Ed as well... so.....

    Just my 2 though.

    Alright, so here's what I've decided. I'm bumping up Piece of Mind because I kinda see why he's so liked, so he's going up higher on the list. Based on how you guys seem to think how Iron Maiden Eddie is, I'm bumping him down a few tiers. Now, to explain why Mystic and Shadow Wickerman are higher than likely expected; they have good enough utility to keep themselves going. Mummy Eddie doesn't have that utility. This is also why Bass Eddie is higher. True, damage means a lot in this game, but utility also makes and breaks the team. Navigator will still be staying at B, though I will increase Speed of Light to tier C. Keep the feedback coming, guys!

    Edit: I will also bump up Holy Smokes one tier, and I'm going to change Shadow Wickerman's ranking. Mystic's will remain as is.

    Well, I just think if an Eddie is a 1 or 2 hit kill.. that doesn't make them very good. i.e. Shadow Wicker Man, Mystic, Bass Ed, etc. I've NEVER entered a battle and thought "Shit, there's Mystic Eddie." So ranking him high is nonsensical to me.

    "Unity" is very subjective. Any Ed can be put on a team to make him seem more resilient than he is. And there's a world of difference between Eds that can compete head to head in PvP and how good an Ed actually may be. If everyone in the arena used VHE, then he would be seen as more powerful.

    Just pointing out that this list is your preference, nothing more.

    You're entirely correct in your judgement, and yeah it is my preference (hence why I didn't move Mystic Eddie). I did change it though because you guys brought up a few good points that I agreed with after reviewing the list, so that's all.

    And I can now auto-play the Gold and Souls Vault thanks to Iron Maiden Eddie. No other Eddie would survive during auto-play on that skull quest (and trust me, I've tried them all)

    Really? I haven't had the chance to try him myself, so I don't really know how great he is, I'm mostly judging off of what I think his kit does.
