NEXT – what are the best heroes to reroll for in Shining Beyond?
Because Shining Beyond uses a job system and from our CBT experience, we have concluded that rerolling for an SSR Warrior is the best deal for any beginner. Because there are formations in the game, you will notice that almost all of the formations include a Warrior.
Realistically, there are 3 tiers of difficulty when rerolling:
- Easy: Reroll for SSR (any job)
- Medium: Reroll for SSR Warrior
- Very Hard: Reroll for SSR Warrior and SSR (any)
- Nightmare: Reroll for SSR Warrior and SSR Ranger or Rogue
Basically, a lot of formations include Warrior / Rogue / Ranger and very few have Acolytes. Also, most of the Acolytes are healers and not damage dealers. To make farming and progressing faster, its best to have a Warrior that can tank and deal big damage instead.
Having an additional SSR Ranger or Rogue is also very good since it only makes clearing content faster.
Best Heroes and Shining Beyond Job System
As previously explained in the Reroll Guide section, there are a total of 4 different beginner jobs – Warrior, Ranger, Rogue, and Acolyte. You can upgrade these jobs by evolving them into new tiers.
For example, a Warrior’s first advancement can be either Zealot or Crusader. If you pick Zealot, you can then promote it to Samurai or Dragoon. If you pick Crusader, you can promote it to Defender and Paladin. Both highest promotions have access to Dark Templar.
These jobs will dictate how your character will behave. If you as a Warrior promote yourself to Defender, then your character will be a tank but if you want to deal more damage, then choose Dragoon or Samurai.
The most important thing you need to understand is that each of these highest promotion jobs has a unique skill only accessible to them. For example, Paladin’s 3rd skill is Deliverance that is only unique to this promoted job.
Every Warrior hero you summon (R, SR, SSR) will have access to the same jobs. It’s hard to determine what the best hero is since there is so much to experiment this is why it’s best to first evaluate the skills and decide which final job compliments that skillset the most.
Shining Beyond Tier List Overview
In this Shining Beyond Tier List overview, we explain our evaluations. There are quite a few factors that need to be considered, so please read this section to have context when viewing the Shining Beyond Tier List.
When we evaluate a hero, we focus on these 5 factors:
- Performance in game mode
It’s especially important to understand how much of a critical role Masteries have for each hero. For example, Jake is the starting hero and he has Mastery in Titan and Adventure. Naturally, the developers made him like that because he will be used in story mode and most of the bosses will be Titans.
Masteries make each hero more efficient and better at some modes or against specific enemy types. Since Jake is so ultra-focused on clearing story mode, he is a rather lackluster choice for when you’re doing Arena PvP.
This brings us to the main suspect- Masteries. Any hero that has Mastery in Arena already qualifies as the best choice to use in that mode. However, unlike Adventure mode, an Arena hero can still clear it with no problems which makes it the most powerful Mastery. The second most powerful mastery would be Guild Raid.
Finally, because of how important it is to deal with enemies as fast as possible to have a faster progression time, any hero that has access to a strong skill and a self-heal ability becomes a top tier hero in this Shining Beyond Tier List guide.
