Honkai Star Rail has just released one of its latest updates, referred to as Honkai Star Rail 1.3! In this new update, players can expect to meet new characters, of course.

They can also unlock an exciting new game mode event where the Trailblazer gets to help manage small businesses in the Aurum Alley.

With new updates comes a need for a tier list of the best characters in the game and who you should prioritize in leveling up, gearing, and grinding to the highest level.

Honkai Star Rail 1.3 Character Tier List

With this tier list, we have split the roster of characters into three separate categories: Overall Ranking, Single Target DPS, AOE DPS, and Support.

Each tier list is ranked from SS tier to F tier.

SS Tier

These are the must-haves that make all of the content in the game the easiest and can be used across almost every team.

S Tier

These are the characters who are super strong in what they do. They can also act as a core member in many teams across the game but may need more investment than others.

A Tier

These characters are strong, but they will definitely need more investment and care. This means they're supported by their artifacts, weapons, and other characters on the team.

B Tier

These characters are good but are pushed into the niche category. They are going to be those characters when put into a specific team they will shine exceptionally.

C Tier

These are like the characters in the B Tier, but they are going to be the ones who are first to be moved off the team when you get someone on the higher tier.

F Tier

These are the lowest tier for a reason. You should only use characters in here if you don't have 'ANYBODY' else in the tiers above.
