NOTE: There may be duplicates because some characters can fill multiple roles. Anyone unlisted does not fill any meaningful role in this gamemode.
Characters may go up in value depending on the groups on an opponent. For example, Izayoi vs Vampires goes up in value.
A general team comp is made up of 1 DPS and 3 Supports
|Tier||Fire DPS||Wind DPS||Dark DPS||Earth DPS||Water DPS||Light DPS||Support|
To pair with my Grimoire Tier List, and looking only at characters A and above (as of the first draft):
|Most top tier DPS||DPS (Crit Astral)||A Crit Astral is basically peak damage for the vast majority of the cast. If crits are not feasible, you don't go for crits. Crits are better than no crits though.|
|DPS (Crit Astral) / DPS (Crit DD)||I actually don't know which is best, this needs further testing. I didn't own Jubei in the first event, but both his AH and his S - DD - DD - DD chain are incredibly potent. Depends on the comp, and the triple DD cannot benefit from Tenjo's negative.|
|Heat Gen - Drive Support / Utility Support / Tank Support (For Vigor)||Tenjo's ability to tank and play Drive Support depends on the opposing element. If she is elementally weak, she can play Drive. If she is elementally strong, she can play Tank. When neutral, utility is safe. This goes for most supports, but since Tenjo has Vigor herself, she will almost always fill that role.|
|Utility Support / General Bulk for Support||Tweyen has a bad stat spread for the support role. Too much damage to be a drive support, too little bulk to be a tank. Normal bulk is best.|
|Heat Gen - Skill Support||Djeeta has the best heat gen skill in the game. She is also a very good support outside that, but you want to exploit her heat gen as much as possible with the correct grimoire.|
|Heat Gen - Drive Support / Utility Support / Tank Support (For Vigor) / General Bulk for Support||Clicking all 4 boxes means that any grimoire is fine really, depends on the role that is required from her.|
|Preparing for War||If you don't have Perparing for War, see Kokonoe's explanation.|
|Heat Gen - Drive Support / Utility Support / Tank Support (For Vigor) / General Bulk for Support||Sechs is probably the best drive support here when it comes to pure gains, since he can inflate heat very very quickly. He can also play tank in the front row, but if he does, he does too much damage to be the Drive Support.|
|Hate Down for Squishy Support||Ciel is squishy support. Very squishy.|
|Utility Support / General Bulk for Support||Jin does way too much damage to be pressing buttons. If he is there as support, its just for his skill 2.|
|Heat Gen - Skill Support / Heat Gen - Drive Support / Tank Support (For Vigor)||% based Heat Gen grimoires also inflate her S heat gen. Likewise, her passive means that someone else can play the role of Drive Support if needed, but against a weak element she can do it too. She can also tank, but that's not using her meter to its fullest potential.|
|Heat Gen - Drive Support / Tank Support (For Vigor)||Rachel generates meter faster than anyone else on D naturally. This makes her the ideal Drive support. She can also be a tank support if required, since her def down is very solid.|
