Build Tier List for AE:RA
« on: 26 November 2020, 01:09:16 »
(Moved from TQ AE - General Discussion)

This is a place for people to share a build tier list for AE:RA.

The tiers are follows:
- S Tier (God Tier): the character is unkillable while having very good damage
- A Tier: damage is very good but has some weaknesses in survivability, or very tanky but not very good damage, or both are good but not S tier level
- B Tier: both damage and survivability are not great. Usually looks cool though :)
- C Tier: it would be cool if it worked, but it doesn't. You can have fun with it in Normal/early Epic though :)

Below are the builds that I've used:

S Tier (God Tier)
- Strength-based, super tanky caster (Summoner: Earth + Nature) build:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1484695249
- Throwing Weapon and Shield, Strength-based Skinchanger (Rune + Nature) build:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2292461703

It's not a coincidence that I completed the Yellows Only Hardcore Challenge with these two builds.

A Tier
- Physical/piercing damage-oriented, spear dragon hunter (Hunting + Rune) build:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1391778605
This build has excellent damage (one-shot many bosses), but can die to damage reflection or strong ranged monsters.
- Plague + Lightning Bolt Druid (Storm + Nature) build:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2298426897
Both damage and survivability are good, but I think below that of the S Tier.

B Tier
- "Elemental Archer" Stonespeaker (Earth + Rune) build, using bow only, dealing fire/elemental damage:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1814921077
- "Fireball Fire Mage" Conjurer (Fire + Spirit) build focusing on fireball attack (fire-damage staff with Ternion attack):
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1454079424
- "Fire spear" Physical/piercing damage-oriented, spear avenger (Hunting + Earth) build:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1360093840

C Tier
- "Battle Mage" Int-based Stonespeaker (Earth + Rune) using sword and shield: doesn't work because with mage gears, it's impossible to survive at melee range. My character for this build is stuck at Atlantis/Act 4 Epic.

I've also tried a standard Fire mage build with Nature and an Ice Shard build (who hasn't :) ) with Nature in the past, but I was noob at that point so didn't want to rate them.

Look forwards to your list!

@Eddytan : cool hope you have fun with it. It's only possible in AE as it introduces Str scaling for physical spell damage.

If its not too much to ask, Can you make an in depth build on your two S tier characters? I am interested in playing either one of them, more so the summoner. Though I am new to the game and am not sure what items I should be farming along the way, as well as other nuances that one might encounter as a newb to this game. Thank you for your current build guides for them.

Also, I'd be interested in what other builds you believe are S tier.

Where did you get your information when you were starting this game? I am new and currently have only made it to act 4 and can tell its going to get a lot more hard with my current game knowledge.

Thanks again!
