Lightbearer Faction Investment Guide

This is the ultimate guide for the Lightbearer faction.

Last update: Patch v1.141 (May 2024)

Which Lightbearer hero should you ascend first?

This is the best Lightbearer ascension priority list:

Ascension priority:

 ➜ Scarlet ➜ ➜ MorrowcecillaEluardPeggyOscarwalker
The best initial wishlist for early game players is: Scarlet, and the fifth slot can be either Raine or Rosaline.

cecilla Cecilia at Elite ascension is also very useful for early Campaign, but she is not crucial enough to justify putting her in your wishlist right at the beginning. Fawkes can be very useful on Faction tower even at Elite ascension.

PS: To check which awakened lightbearer hero you should ascend first, check our Temple of Time guide.

In which game mode is each hero relevant?

Here you can check a table that shows the usefulness of each hero in the following game modes:

– CR: Cursed Realm
– NC: Nightmare Corridor
– TS: Treasure Scramble
– Rift: Temporal Rift
– AE: Abyssal Expedition
– CP/KT: Campaign and King’s Tower
– FT: Faction Tower

F-tier Lightbearers

Do not invest on Peggy Peggy,  Fawkes, Lucius, Belinda, Thane, Oscar Oscar,  Rigby, and walker Walker. The maximum investment you should put into these heroes is signature level 10 or 20, in case you have a lot of emblems left in your bag.
PS: Thane can actually be a pretty decent carry for Lightbearer tower if you get his Lvl 60 engraving. But there are better carries than him in the current LB Tower meta, so his Lvl 60 engraving is NOT a good recommendation anymore.
