Awaken: Chaos Era – Tier List for Best Heroes
The latest game to hit the markets in the turn-based section is Awaken: Chaos Era, a new medieval RPG game set in the age-old universe where different heroes from different factions lived in harmony together on the planet. The game is currently launched in a soft launch state by Century Games Limited for certain regions like Australia and New Zealand. Players can download the game using an APK installation method on their BlueStacks or their Android devices from the Game Center of BlueStacks or the APK listed on their official Facebook page and discord server.
Awaken: Chaos Era is a gacha/hero collector game where players can summon their favorite heroes in the summoning banners using their summoning currencies. Players can do this using 3 different types of summoning currencies on different types of banners:
- Rookie Summoning Banner
- Advanced Summon Banner
- Normal Summon Banner
- Limited Summon Banner
The different summoning currencies used for summoning are:
- Summoning Crystal
- Advanced Summoning Crystal
- Element Specific Summoning Crystals
The rate for summoning a legendary hero which is the highest rarity unit in the game is at a staggering 1%. However, Awaken: Chaos Era has a well-built soft pity and hard pity system in-built. Players start at a base rate of 1% for legendary heroes but after completing 70 summons without getting a legendary unit, they will see an increase of 0.5% increase in the rate of summoning a legendary unit plus the existing 1% for every Advanced summoning crystal/Stardust summon used. This rate will further increase to 1% per advanced summoning crystal/stardust summon used if no legendary unit is summoned after completing 90 summons on the banner. A guaranteed legendary unit exists at 100 summons.
Players can summon heroes for 5 different elements from the gacha system:
Out of the 5 elements, the light and dark elemental heroes are rarer to summon as we see in many different games of the same genre.
In this tier list, we will be mentioning some of the best heroes in Awaken: Chaos Era if you are looking to reroll or for a strong start in general.
S Tier Units
Hydrissea is a legendary tier Water elemental unit that players can get from summoning during their initial rookie summons. She is a top-tier DPS hero that can help players clear story mode and even help with defeating enemies in Arena fights. She does with the help of her massive damage dealing AOE skills and her passive which states she has a 50% chance to launch an AOE attack which deals 50% of her attack damage to all enemies whenever she attacks with any ability. This passive will not proc on counterattacks or joint attacks though. Players can look forward to getting her during their reroll process to make the early game easier. We recommend building her with the Attack and Rage set for maximum DPS.
Evera is a legendary tier Wood elemental unit that players can get from summoning during their initial rookie summons. Evera is also another amazing DPS unit that can go multiple times when her passive Rage is stacked. She has the ability to grant herself an Attack Increased buff which synergizes with the rest of her kit. Her 3rd skill is an AOE targeted massive DPS skill that deals 100-200% of her attack damage to all enemies. Her second ability can remove buffs from the target she attacks and if she has an Attack Up buff, she will follow up with her Gunfire skill. Her basic skill is also a single targeted damaging skill that has the same effects as her 2nd skill that she launches a bonus attack with Gunfire is she has an Attack Up buff on her.
Valeria is a legendary tier Fire elemental unit that players can get from summoning during their initial rookie summons. Valeria is again a strong DPS unit that has the potential to be one of the best farmers in the game. She does with the help of her fast skill cycling due to her passive Pleasure and Pain which states – “Reduces all ability cooldowns by 1 turn(s) upon the death of (an enemy → any unit).” She has both of her abilities as AOE one’s but she does consume her own health to use her 3rd ability to deal massive damage. On the contrary, she can recover health with her 2nd skill. She has a really cool blood witch theme going on and her skills are great as well.
Zatlux is an Epic tier Wood elemental hero that is available to be summoned through advanced summoning crystals or players can get through the Covenant Bonds. Zatlux is arguably one of the best Epic heroes in the entire game due to the pure DPS farmer style of his kit. He can reset all of the cooldowns on his skills whenever he kills an enemy and he can turn cycle this with the help of his ultimate. He also gets additional in-built critical hit rate increase and precision increase with the help of his passive ability Assassin Training. His ultimate ability Feast of Carnage deals 200% damage to a single targeted enemy and deals more damage to lesser the enemies remain. Players can build him with a High critical hit rate and critical hit damage to wipe out multiple enemies in a single round. He is easily obtainable which makes his value much higher as he can be ascended faster as well.
Gangelo is a Legendary tier Wood elemental hero that is available to be summoned through advanced summoning crystals. Gangelo’s passive ability Enhancement Agent states that all enemies take 50% more damage from Poisons. This passive can be upgraded to 100% more damage from Poisons when he is Ascended. All of his abilities apply Poison which is another amazing source of the debuff. His 2nd ability heals him for the number of Poisons the target he chooses to attack has. His 3rd ability is an AOE targeted spell that deals damage to all enemies and applies Poison for 2 turns. He is a must for building Poison teams for Queen of Tides as he boosts the overall damage.
Evelyn Firstdawn is a Legendary tier Light elemental hero that is available to be summoned through advanced summoning crystals. She is one of the best heroes in the game due to her sheer capability to do damage in Arena and the immense utility she provides. Sadly, the rates to summon her are extremely low and she is considered one of the rarest units in the game. She provides a Defense buff for 3 turns to all allies at the start of the battle with the help of her Passive ability. Her basic ability is a single targeted damaging attack that can remove a buff from the target. Her 2nd skill is an AOE targeted damaging ability that can also apply Defense down debuff for 2 turns. Her main DPS comes from her 3rd ability Full Strike which deals 100% of her damage to all enemies and grants a bonus turn to all allies which leads to a massive amount of DPS.
A Tier Units
Santis is an Epic tier Water elemental hero that is available to be summoned through advanced summoning crystals or can be synthesized in the Altar.

Her ultimate ability is an AOE targeted damaging ability that deals damage and inflicts 2 stacks of poison each on all enemies.

Her basic skill is single targeted damage dealing skill that has a 50% chance to inflict a Defense down debuff. Her 2nd skill is also a single targeted damaging skill that can give her a Shield buff is the target she attacks is under a negative effect.

Connor is an Elite tier Fire elemental hero that is available to be summoned through advanced summoning crystals, summoning crystals, and/or through completing the Covenant bond for Connor. Connor is one of those units that are extremely valuable not only for F2p players but also for whales who have the ability to choose from a wider roster of premium units. He’s just an Elite unit but his skill set beats even some of the legendaries. He does with the help of his easy-to-get nature for Ascension and low cooldowns. His passive ability Zealot states he gets 20% bonus attack. His Ultimate ability Imprecatory Prayer is a team-wide healing spell and the amount of healing scaling according to his attack power. This skill is on a 4-turn cooldown and can be easily turn-cycled with the help of building some speed on him. His 2nd ability Berserk Banneris an AOE team-wide Attack and Shield buffs for 2 turns.

He is a great farmer due to his passive ability Chaos Slaughter which states – “Upon defeating an enemy, he deals 50% of damage to all enemies”. His 3rd ability Chaos Burst is also an AOE targeted damaging ability that 150% of his attack damage to all enemies and deals more damage the lesser number of enemies there are. He can give himself an Attack buff with the help of his basic ability.
Games like Awaken: Chaos Era which is grind-heavy and needs to be played for a long duration of hours can be harmful to the small batteries of your mobile devices. Hence, we recommend playing Awaken: Chaos Era on a PC with BlueStacks using a keyboard and mouse.
