Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas Tier List of the Best Clans in the Game
Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas is an unconventional game, in the sense that, in contrast with other gachas, you don’t collect actual characters per se, but you collect people of different lineages and clans, which in turn will determine their traits in skills. You see, this is more a game about marriages and heirs, rather than simply obtaining the best characters directly from the summoning system. As such, even if you have powerful units on your team, you’ll eventually want to marry them in order to bear more powerful offspring for your teams. And while the marriage process means that the parents will be permanently removed from your team, their children will have the potential to be much more powerful, making the investment more than worth it.
In this sense, creating a typical tier list is somewhat complicated in this game, since there are no specific “champions” that you can obtain. Instead, you can recruit characters from different families, which will determine their traits. Meanwhile, their overall power will be determined by their level and star rank. Regardless, their maximum potential will also depend on their family, since some of these have a higher power cap at max level than others.
With that being said, in this Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas tier list, we’ll be talking about the best clans in the game, and the ones that you should be striving to acquire and develop during your time with this game.
S Tier Clans
These are the clans with the highest power rating, and therefore have the potential of birthing the best characters in the game.
- Ugrull: Superb survivability and burst damage makes this clan excel at fighting in the frontlines. Both the males and females of this clan are equally as fearsome, though the latter have slightly better damage capabilities and considerably better self-healing.
- Doombringer: Exceedingly good damage potential coupled with limited invulnerability makes this into one of the best clans in the game. Both the male and females are equally as fearsome on the field.
- Fulgur: This clan offers excellent AoE damage combined with the ability to block a single enemy’s special attack, which makes them great for both PvP and PvE.
- Ignis: This clan brings powerful AoE damage and also inflicts burning on the enemy, further increasing the damage done over time.
A Tier Clans
Clans that aren’t as strong as the previous tier, but that can be a reckoning force on the battlefield regardless.
- Tidestorm: One of the strongest ranged clans in the game, capable of inflicting severe damage to single targets. Excellent for shutting down stubborn tanks, or for bursting down squishy enemy DPS.
- Karg: This clan starts slow since they can be quite fragile. However, once you upgrade them, their dragon transformation can significantly increase the damage of their melee attacks, and let them obliterate entire groups of enemies with their fiery breath.
- Zaess: A great clan for PvP, since they can silence enemies for a few seconds, preventing them from unleashing their ultimate skills, while also dealing decent AoE damage in the process.
- Luxuriant: Specialists in crowd control that can charm or incapacitate the enemy, preventing them from taking action for extended periods. This clan is excellent for shutting down threats before they can act.
B Tier Clans
While not inherently bad, these are clans that you’ll want to replace as soon as you get better champions. Nevertheless, if you score a few high rarity champions of these families, don’t hesitate to include them in your team to get a good advantage early on.
- Lycanis: These assassins leave a lot to be desired in terms of burst damage, but they more than make up for it in survivability. The females can summon powerful wolves to assist in combat, while the males can pounce at the enemies with the lowest defense and burst them down with devastating melee attacks.
- Gryphon: Middling fighters that are quite decent when upgraded, though they’re very squishy and struggle to survive when placed on the front rows.
- Karguk: As far as actual tanks go, this is one of the most powerful clans for this role, despite the current meta seemingly leaning towards pure offensive formations. Nevertheless, if you want to roll with a tank, this clan is a solid choice.
- Yivnian: These agile assassins are great for dealing with squishy enemies on the back rows, though they can be easily countered with crowd control effects, or by placing a tank on the back row.
C Tier Clans
Clans that you’ll want to avoid at all costs, either because they have low stats or simply because their skills aren’t very good, or maybe even a combination of the two.
- Aeson: Some light healing and shielding is the only thing that this clan has going for it. Drop it as soon as you can.
- Sallyhorn: If you ever wondered how it feels to march into the battlefield wielding only a foam hammer, then this clan is for you. What good is it to be very tanky when you can’t actually do any damage at all?
- Travain: Ineffective skills coupled with very low stats make this into a clan you’ll want to avoid. This one, in particular, is a beginner’s trap since the first companion that you unlock belongs to this clan, and therefore the first heirs that you’ll have will likely be of this clan as well.
- Lume: These are much better healers than Aeson, especially since they can effectively prevent a unit from dying for a few seconds. However, it’s clear that the meta is offense-oriented, and sacrificing a slot for a dedicated healer can be quite wasteful.
Keep in mind that this tier list was based around the clan’s top power and skills. However, as the game evolves and players start theorycrafting more, they will most likely find better team compositions and synergies that shine in both PvP and PvE. As such, expect the meta and tier lists to change accordingly.
Nevertheless, this tier list should give you an idea of what to look for when playing Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
