Explanation of the usefulness of each Awakened hero

Awakened Shemira is the strongest awakened hero on PvP. She is also top-tier on Campaign and Temporal Rift. She is also very great on Cursed Realm and Abyssal Expedition.

Awakened Belinda is one of the strongest heroes in the game right now. She is by far the strongest damage dealer in Abyssal Expedition. She is one of the strongest heroes for Temporal Rift. She is also very useful on Cursed Realm and Nightmare Corridor. She is meta on PvP, but her PvP comp is not top-tier. And she is the best awakened hero for Campaign.

Awakened Athalia is super strong on PvP. She can also be great on Cursed Realm and Nightmare Corridor. She is one of the strongest damage dealers on Abyssal Expedition. And she can also be very useful on Temporal Rift and she is a good damage dealer for Campaign. In other words, she is good everywhere.

Awakened Lyca is one of the strongest heroes on PvP, very flexible hero that can be used on several PvP comps. She is also very strong on Cursed Real and Nightmare Corridor. She is also great on Temporal Rift, Campaign and Abyssal Expedition.

Awakened Safiya is one of the strongest supports on PvP, she is used in one of the strongest PvP comps in the current meta. She is also extremely strong on Cursed Realm, Nightmare Corridor and Temporal Rift. She can also be great on Abysal Expedition and Campaign.

Maetria is a very strong awakened hero for Treasure Scramble. She is also useful for Nightmare Corridor and some Cursed Realm rounds. She can also be very useful on Temporal Rift. She is also one of the strongest Campaign heroes, especially on Thoran comps. Her least relevant game mode is Abyssal Expedition because mage is the weakest class.

Gavus is a very useful hero for PvP, Cursed Realm and Nightmare Corridor. He can also be great on Temporal Rift, Abyssal Expedition and Campaign. He is not a mandatory hero, but he certainly improves your team on all game modes.

Awakened Solise is great on some Twisted Realm bosses and she is also very important on most Cursed Realm and Nightmare Corridor rounds. She is the strongest healer for Temporal Rift and she is the core hero of a strong PvP comp. She is also strong on Abyssal Expedition and Campaign.

Awakened Brutus is a strong option for PvP. He is also very useful on Temporal Rift. ABrutus is very important if you’re willing to use Might class as your main class in the Abyssal Expedition. He is also meta on most Cursed Realm bosses and he is quite useful on Campaign.

Awakened Baden is the best damage dealer on several Cursed Realm rounds. He is also great on Nightmare Corridor, but not as good as he is on Cursed Realm. He is also very useful on PvP, Campaign and Temporal Rift. He can also be useful on Abyssal Expedition, but not a very high priority for this game mode.

Awakened Thane is a very strong Awakened hero for Campaign, but his strongest game mode is PvP because he is one of the strongest options for Burst comps on PvP game modes. He can be useful in some Cursed Realm bosses, but not a super high priority. He is also great for Abyssal Expedition, Nightmare Corridor and Temporal Rift.

Awakened Phoenix Awakened Talene is a very strong hero, but she is outclassed by all Awakened heroes mentioned above in most game modes. Her strongest game mode is Temporal Rift. She is an immortal tank and healer, so she is very useful there. She is also useful for Campaign, but she can work even at Legendary ascension on this game mode. She is useful in some Cursed Realm bosses, but she also works at Legendary ascension in some of them. She is useful and very flexible in PvP, but definitely not even close as important as the other five Awakened heroes mentioned above for this game mode.

Awakened-Ezizh Awakened Ezizh is by far the weakest Awakened hero. The only game modes where he is top-tier are Campaign and towers, but he works pretty well even at Legendary ascension. So you’ll basically never need more than one copy of him. He is mediocre or below average on all other game modes.

Explanation of the usefulness of Awakened heroes in each game mode

PvE (Campaign/Towers)

ABelinda, AShemira and Maetria are the strongest and most versatile Awakened heroes for PvE, both need to be ascended to carry your team at high level deficits. ABelinda is mostly used on Alna comps and Leonardo comps, but she can also work on Mehira comps, Eironn comps, and Tamrus comps. Maetria is great everywhere, including on Thoran cheese. AShemira is great to protect your allies, but she really needs her 9/9 furniture to unlock her true potential.

AThane, AEzizh and AAthalia are also very important Awakened heroes for PvE, but AEzizh only needs to be Legendary. AThane only needs to be Legendary in some very specific scenarios where you will want to use him just because of his awakened skill, but in most situations you will need him Ascended to carry your team. AAthalia only works at ascended ascension.

AEzizh is most commonly used to counter Flora comps or any other strong enemy that needs to be banished right at the beginning of the battle. AThane is a carry and he is used very often on Leonardo comps where you can permastun enemies. AThane also work without Leonardo as long as your team has a good CC.

AAthalia is an amazing damage dealer that can carry your team at extremely high level deficits. She doesn’t have a great survivability though. That’s why she is a tier below ABelinda and Maetria.

ABaden is a great damage dealer and he is most commonly used on Alna comps, replacing Grezhul, or Queen comps. ATalene also works pretty well at Legendary ascension, she is occasionally used on Queen comps too.

ASolise is a great healer with great survivability and great damage. She works pretty well as secondary damage dealer on Alna comps. ASafiya is a great buffer that deals a good amount of damage and it heavily increases your team survivability. ABrutus is one of the best damage dealers in the game and he has a great CC too. He works great on Leonardo comps and Queen comps.

Notes: all PvE recommendations above are based on very late game Campaign above 200 level deficits. At lower deficits, all awakened heroes are even stronger.

Notes 2: if you wanna see how PvE meta comps look like, check the our Late Game PvE guide where there is an explanation of each PvE comp.

PvP (Treasure Scramble, Heroes of Esperia, Arena)

ALyca, AShemira, ASafiya, Maetria, ABrutus, ABelinda, ASolise, AAthalia, AThane and ABaden are all great heroes on PvP. And these are the most common variations of their comps in the current meta:

ASafiya-Rem comp: alna , or replacing

ASafiya-ABrutus comp: , or replacing

ASafiya dimensionals: Albedo Merlin

ALyca-Rem comp: alna Ezio, or replacing

AShemira-Liberta comp: , or replacing

Dimensional comp with ABrutus: Albedo MerlinEzio, or replacing

ABrutus comp without Albedo-Merlin: alna Ezio, or replacing

Dimensional comp with AAthalia: MerlinAlbedo , or replacing

Cycle comp with ABelinda-Gavus: , or replacing

Nevanthi comp with ASolise: , or replacing

Nevanthi comp with ALucius:  , or replacing

Alna comp with ABaden: alna mortasafk arena silas, or replacing mortas

ABaden stall: Awakened Phoenix flora, or replacing Awakened Phoenix

AThane-Hendrik comp: Haelus, or replacing Haelus

AThane burst: , or replacing

Maetria hypo comp: Framton, or  replacing

Maetria burst: , or replacing

Maetria stall: Treznor Desiraflora, or Awakened Phoenix replacing

The strongest comp is AShemira-Liberta comp, but Alna comps are also very strong. ABelinda comp and Maetria comp are very consistent comps in most situations. ABaden, ASolise and AThane comps are weaker than the other comps mentioned above in most situations, but they’re still very strong comps.

ABrutus dimensional comp is strong, but it has been outclassed by other dimensional comps in the current meta. But ABrutus is still valuable for PvP because he is strong enough to build different comps without Albedo or even without any dimensional hero.

It is possible to build several variations of Dimensional comp, Cycle comp, Burst comp and Alna comp without Awakened heroes, but it is not possible to build Maetria hypo comp without Maetria, so her value is pretty high on PvP. AThane can be replaced by Olgath on PvP.

ATalene is significantly weaker on PvP than the other five Awakened heroes mentioned above, but she is still a decent PvP hero. She is usually a good hero to build your 6th or 7th best PvP comp.

AEzizh is by far the weakest Awakened hero on PvP. He is good on Maetria hypo comp, but he is not an essential hero. He can also be useful on Stall comps or Kalene comps, but those comps have been falling off from the meta.

Notes: if you wanna see how PvP meta comps look like, check the our PvP guide where there are examples of each PvP comp.

Cursed Realm

ABelinda is meta on all Cursed Realm bosses. ABaden is meta on five of the six CR bosses, but he is usually the carry of the strongest comp, so he is arguably the most relevant Awakened hero for CR. ABrutus and ASolise are also meta on five CR bosses. AAthalia and ASafiya are also meta on most CR bosses.

These are by far the top five Awakened heroes on this game mode. Maetria is the sixth best Awakened hero for Cursed Realm.

ATalene and AThane are great against two bosses only. And AEzizh is not meta on any of the bosses.

Temporal Rift

Temporal Rift has been reworked, so the meta is not focused on Might class anymore. Because of that, ABrutus is not top-tier anymore on this game mode, but he is still good. ABelinda, ASafiya and ASolise are the top 3 strongest awakened heroes for Temporal Rift. ABelinda is meta even at Legendary ascension.

AAthalia, AThane, Maetria and ABaden are also very strong carries for Temporal Rift, but they’re less impactful than the other three heroes mentioned above. ATalene is also really good, but not good enough to be a very high priority.

Again, AEzizh is by far the weakest Awakened hero on this game mode.

Abyssal Expedition

ABelinda is the strongest hero for Abyssal Expedition. AAthalia is the second best awakened hero here. ABrutus, ASafiya and ASolise are also top-tier because Might and Sustenance are the strongest classes on this game mode. AThane is the best Celerity hero on this game mode. ABaden is good, but not as good as AThane. ATalene is a good Fortitude hero, but she is not meta. Maetria is good, but not as good as the other awakened heroes. AEzizh is useless on this game mode.
