Who Is the Best Hero in Honor of Kings?

As per our tier list, some of the best characters in Honor of Kings include Li Bai, Kui, and Guiguizi. We’ve ranked all the 100+ heroes in the game based on their relative difficulty to use. As such, those in the S and A tiers will require a more skilled player to properly harness during matches.

For those beginning the game, you’ll initially use Angela for the early tutorials. She isn’t a bad damage dealer once you’ve leveled her up. However, her slow movement and attack speeds make her practically unusable beyond that.

Therefore, aim to become proficient with characters like Li Bai, Kui, and Guiguizi. All of them are deemed ‘Very Hard’ on the in-game difficulty screen, but have better stats to compensate for that. Of course, you’ll need to have enough resources to purchase them from the Heroes page first, which will take plenty of time grinding through quests.

That’s all for our Honor of Kings tier list! For more articles like this, check out our Strinova characters tier list and Anime Defenders tier list. Elsewhere, we’ve got the Type Soul Trello link and Tarisland classes tier list.
