FFBE: War of the Visions UR Unit Tier List

by Gacha Gamer

Welcome to the FFBE War of the Visions Tier List for UR units. You can use this WOTV FFBE Tier List when creating new accounts for rerolling or to decide into which FFBE WOTV units you want to invest resources.

Having the best units in the game allows easier time clearing story missions, completing hard event quests and dominating in PvP arena. Please keep in mind that in FFBE: War of the Visions (cont. WOTV) it’s especially hard to evaluate because each unit performs differently on the type of content they are used in.

When determining the viability and strength of the unit the following reasons must be taken into consideration:

  • How easy it is to obtain their shards.
  • How strong are their Trust Master rewards.
  • How versatile they are. (PvP, PvE, Farming, Events etc.)
  • How much better they are than their respective element counterparts. (Wind, Ice, Air etc.)
  • How much better they are than their respective role counterparts. (Damage, Healing, Support etc.)

Without further ado, here is the Final Fantasy Brave Exvius: War of The Visions Tier List


SS Tier


Orlandeau

(Limited Unit / FFT Event)

Orlandeau is a powerhouse when it comes to accomplishing your goal as a damage dealer. Not only does he have great survivability but he also boasts impressive long-range abilities.

PROS ➕

  • Great long-range attacks allow him to attacks targets from up to 5 squares away.
  • Amazing passive skills like Thunder God allow him to excel at damage dealing.
  • Impressive survivability (has one of the highest HP stats)

CONS  ➖

  • Low mobility (if he runs out of AP before the fight is over, he becomes very weak)

S Tier

Lucia

Lucia is a lot like Frederika – has access to some powerful long range, physical attacks and has good survivability. It seems being ranged, just like in the original Final Fantasy Tactics just comes off as a better advantage than being a melee unit, so naturally, Lucia gets placed in a higher tier.

PROS ➕

  • Powerful long-range attacks
  • Good at eliminating tanky units
  • Very good basic stats

CONS  ➖

  • Units like Mediena can make short work of her, due her low Magical defense

Rain

(Limited Unit / FFBE Event)

Rain is a very good magic tank AND attacker. Key point being here good at magical stuff. He isn’t that great when it comes to soaking up physical damage but when going up against teams full of mages, he certainly beats any other tanks.

PROS ➕

  • Good at tanking magic damage
  • Can use Limit Burst as his first move
  • Has some decent debuffs

CONS  ➖

  • Needs his event weapon maxed out and equipped, to truly shine
  • Because he deals both physical and magical, it’s hard to find any good Vision cards

Miranda

Miranda gets a bad rep because she gets compared to Mediena constantly, now that she has finally become available on the global version. However, she is a beast of her own since you can first focus using her as a Time Mage support unit and when she reaches level 79+ she can start dealing some serious damage as an offensive caster. Probably the biggest reason why she has ended up in this tier list position is that there are no competent Water element units, besides Ramada… and she isn’t even a UR.

PROS ➕

  • Can provide serious assistance with “Quicken” and “Haste” spells
  • Can use her Limit Burst on first turn
  • Has decent survivability compared to other casters

CONS  ➖

  • Requires full awakening to show her true value as damage dealer

Mediena

Mediena is pretty much versatile in any type of content and she is one of the strongest farming units in the game.

PROS ➕

  • Amazing at auto-farming
  • Can use her Limit Burst on first turn
  • Very powerful “Flare” spell for end-game content

CONS  ➖

  • Low survivability
  • Falls off in late game PvP auto-arena

Sterne Leonis

Sterne is one of the highest single target damage dealers in the game. Due to his Shuriken ability, he is able to attack enemies from afar.

PROS ➕

  • Very high single target damage
  • Great mobility
  • “Shuriken” allows to attack enemies from afar

CONS  ➖

  • Low survivability

Frederika

Frederika excels at her gunner role especially well in PvP auto-arena due to how she is able to kite her enemies with strong opening shots before they can damage her.

PROS ➕

  • Very long range attacks
  • Dominates PvP arena
  • Has great Reaction abilities

CONS  ➖

  • Slow at auto-farming
  • Not the best at PvE content

Gilgamesh

This winged mage instills fear into his enemies by casting powerful abilities on them and himself. Sadly, Gilgamesh requires double the Visiore spending in order to obtain his shards and Hard Missions only provide 1 shard per day. War of the Visions community has branded Gilgamesh as the unit for the “whale” spenders of the game.

PROS ➕

  • Amazing “Kotetsu” ability
  • Has access to “Quick” and “Haste” abilities
  • Great for auto-farming

CONS  ➖

  • Only shows true potential at Lv. 80+
  • Very hard to Limit Break (double Visiore cost)
  • Known as a unit for “whales” – those who spend a lot of $$$ on the game

Ayaka

Ayaka shows her true potential in Tower mode and in certain PvP arena teams. (e.g. paired with Engelbert)

PROS ➕

  • Strongest healing unit
  • Strongest buffing unit
  • Can dish out magic damage

CONS  ➖

  • Currently only has a niche use for PvP
  • Isn’t relevant until Tower mode arrives
  • Auto-mode performance is poor due to bad AI

Engelbert

Engelbert doesn’t joke around when it comes to taking one for the team and delivers one of the best tanking performance’s in the game.

PROS ➕

  • Best Tank in the game
  • Can debuff enemies with Knight subjob
  • With the right abilities, can lower all damage he takes to 1

CONS  ➖

  • Only works well when paired with a high damaging unit
  • Auto-mode performance is poor due to bad AI

A Tier


ffbe wotv tier list

Fryevia

(Limited Unit / FFBE Event)

Fryevia is one of the first units that is exclusive to the Global version. She is a spellblade unit that is also well-versed in White Magic and Green Magic. The problem with her is that she’s trying to juggle too many roles at the same time – tanking, healing and damage dealing. She’s basically the new Macherie but with a better Limit Break and two revives, that can prove very useful in Tower.

PROS ➕

  • Two revives (great for Tower mode)
  • Good at tanking long-range units like Gunners

CONS  ➖

  • Jack-of-all-trades, master of none.

Viktora

Viktora is probably the best spear unit in the game. She accomplishes what other spear units, like Oelde or Aileen failed cannot do – good mobility and high damage output. The only drawback she has, is that her mobility is TOO GOOD, so she can quite often end up being the only unit on the enemy’s sideline.

PROS ➕

  • Best unit for attacking with Spears
  • Really good mobility

CONS  ➖

  • She is fragile and can get one-shot very easily

Kitone

Kitone is your bread and butter ninja style girl who prefers high mobility and has great evasion skills.

PROS ➕

  • Very mobile (high move and jump stats)
  • Very high evasion rate
  • Can further increase her speed and avoidance rate via abilities

CONS  ➖

  • Doesn’t have any good range attacks

Ramza

(Limited Unit / FFT Event)

Ramza works well both as magic and physical damage dealer along with the capability to grant strong buffs.

PROS ➕

  • Great mobility
  • Can deal both magical and physical damage
  • Has access to powerful buffs

CONS  ➖

  • His damage output is somewhat lacking

Yerma

Yerma is a very strong unit due to her Viking subjob which allows her to deal impressive AoE damage to surrounding enemies. She also has access to Thief subjob which makes her particularly useful for farming Gil dungeons.

PROS ➕

  • Strong attacker with a wide variety offensive abilities
  • Excellent mobility and survivability

CONS  ➖

  • All Reaction abilities are rather weak and leaves her exposed to enemy attacks without proper counters.

Thancred

(Limited Unit / FFXIV Event)

Thancred is another mobile melee unit thanks to his Dragoon subjob. He is considered a bruiser – someone that can deal and take a lot of damage.

PROS ➕

  • High survivability as frontline attacker
  • Can act as great support unit
  • Can attack distant enemies

CONS  ➖

  • No Limit Burst ability
  • Limited Unit

B Tier


Whisper

Whisper is an oxymoron unit – it’s supposed to be a tank, yet she falls from 1 or 2 hits. Still, she packs a punch and brings a few great moves.

PROS ➕

  • Tank with excellent defense and avoidance
  • Can be an active debuffer

CONS  ➖

  • Low HP whose role is to primarily be a tank.

Aileen

Aileen is a spear wielding unit which allows her to attack enemies from 2 squares away. This makes her stand out from the rest of the UR units because she can approach her enemies with better caution. Sadly, Aileen falls off from other UR units during late-game. Still, she is a great unit to have especially if you decide to skip leveling Monte just to have an Earth unit available.

PROS ➕

  • Powerful Limit Burst
  • High Basic ATK power
  • Very strong unit in early game

CONS  ➖

  • Low mobility
  • Becomes weaker in late game content
  • Must full awaken to unlock her best skill “Nighthawk”

Xiza

Xiza often gets overshadowed by other, stronger UR dark units like Sterne and Vinera. She is still a very viable and good unit to use, especially for farming the Gil / Exp / Weapon Exp rooms because of her thief subjob. She also has access to a hit 2-hit combo attack Pummel which makes it very easy to clear missions that require Elemental Chaining 2 times. (You just need to pair her with another dark unit)

PROS ➕

  • Activates fast and often
  • Excellent chaining unit
  • Thief subjob (Stealing and Steal Heart)

CONS  ➖

  • Subpar damage dealing
  • Outperformed by other Dark element units

Robb Hourne

Robb is one of the many Light element UR units in the game. Because of this weird situation he is in, he has to compete for the Light element resources and there are better units you are off with investing than him. Still, Robb has his own unique arsenal of dodging attacks and starting strong at the start of the game because of his high AP but his biggest enemy becomes the map layout and how far away the enemy is.

PROS ➕

  • High base critical rating
  • Excellent starting AP
  • Evades attacks

CONS  ➖

  • Low HP (can get one-shot)
  • Low mobility

Oelde Leonis

Oelde is an interesting unit because he is able to tank if needed. He has great defense capabilities and he is also able to deal with enemies from afar.

PROS ➕

  • Unlocks the best skill “Nighthawk” very early
  • Highest HP and ATK values among all units
  • Although a spearman, Oelde can also tank if needed

CONS  ➖

  • Low mobility
  • Very weak Monk subjob abilities

Macherie

The Iron Maiden herself – she prefers her fights up close and personal, while at the same time providing support to her team mates. Biggest problem with Macherie is her identity crisis – she doesn’t perform any role really well and doesn’t fit and takes up a valuable slot of someone who can do one of her jobs two times better.

PROS ➕

  • Strong light magic spells
  • Good survivability
  • Can buff with “Light Veil” and “Dark Veil”

CONS  ➖

  • Weak Limit Burst
  • Jack-of-all trades, master of none
