Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians: Full Tier List and the Best Creatures to Get in Your Deck

July 20, 2018

If you’ve spent any time playing Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians, you’ll know all about leveling up, increasing rank, and using glyphs. You may even know how to blend skills and elemental affinities to ensure that your team is capable of seeing off the widest possible spectrum of foes.

Even so, it’s always helpful to be able to compare creatures on the fly, rather than having to rely on either unreliable instinct or tedious research. The pace of conflict is fast, and you need to know at a glance whether a creature is worth investing resources in. Seals and glyphs don’t come cheap, and you don’t want to waste them on a loser.

That’s why we’ve gone to the trouble of compiling this exhaustive tier list, which will enable you to quickly see whether or not a creature you’ve just pulled from a Soulstone is a keeper.

What on Earth is a Tier List?

What on Earth is a Tier List?

A tier list boils each creature right down to its raw stats and ranks them accordingly. If you’ve spent any time playing Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians this might strike you as overly reductive. Surely each creature’s own unique roles, skills, and elemental affinities defy simple categorization?

Yes, but also no. The thinking behind a tier list is that, even with these things taken into account, it’s still possible to say a given creature is going to be more successful in a wider range of scenarios than another creature from a lower tier.

It’s worth bearing in mind that a tier list is an inherently subjective thing. That said, we’ve been as scientific as possible by drawing our data from a number of sources. We crowdsourced views from Elemental Guardians players on Reddit, YouTube, and message boards to come up with a list that reflects a broad consensus, so you can be confident that this tier list is reliable.

How to Use Our Tier List

How to Use Our Tier List

It’s very easy. This tier list has four levels.

• S – Creatures in the S tier are your crack troops. They almost invariably deserve to be evolved and equipped with valuable glyphs, irrespective of what the rest of the team is doing.
• A – Creatures in the A tier are not quite the best, but to a casual observer they could be mistaken for the best. They’re generally worth evolving and they’ll play an important role in battle, but only with a good team around them.
• B – Creatures in the B tier are not great by any means, but they can sometimes play a role filling in for better creatures who don’t quite have the right skill profiles for the task at hand. They’re a stopgap, but probably not worth cultivating.
• C – Creatures in the C tier are generally forgettable. In fact, if a creature in the C tier only has two stars, you can pretty much just use it as fuel for its comrades.

There are no 1-star creatures on our tier list. That’s because there’s an overwhelming consensus that they aren’t worth bothering with. If you get a 1-star creature from a Soulstone, chuck it straight on the fuel pile.

It’s also worth remembering that every creature in Elemental Guardians can be ranked up to a higher star level. The star levels provided in the tier list refer to the creatures’ nat (i.e. natural) states. For example, a nat 3 creature has 3 stars at the moment you acquire it. Any creature can be a 5 with enough time and effort.

We’ve organised our tier list alphabetically, in order to let you find the name of your creature with a minimum of fuss. Beside each creature’s name you’ll see its star rating, element, and class.

C Tier

The C tier is the simplest, and the one you have to think about least. Basically, if a creature is nat 2 or above and NOT in any of the other tiers, it’s in this one. Though it may seem counter-intuitive, you will find a handful of 4-star creatures in this tier, including Freezing Death Knight and Lava Einherjar.

A Final Tip

A Final Tip

A final tip for finding the best creatures.

As you consult the tier list, bear in mind that every single creature in Elemental Guardians can be evolved into another form, and sometimes two other forms. As you’d expect, the best creatures are ones that have been evolved, so it always pays to check a creature’s evolved forms when pick it up. That 2-star dud might just have the makings of S-tier bruiser.

The Freezing Basilisk is a good example. We’ve placed it in the S tier, but it evolves from the easily overlooked 2-star Basilisk of the water element. If you find yourself with one of these forgettable specimens, run, don’t walk, to the Dragonmist Islands to farm evolution materials. You’ll be glad you did.

Good luck!
