Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Classes Tier List

There are 24 different classes inside Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and they all have different abilities and power. However, not each of them is worth using inside the game. The Three roles divide each into the 24 classes of the game. So below, we have made three different tier lists, including all the classes inside each role.

Attacker Class

Defender Class

TierCharacter Name

Good (A-Tier)Heavy Guard, Guardian Commander


In the S-tier of the above roles, we have included classes that are the best to use in the game. They are best in their respective roles and surely do pack a punch in what they do. By choosing them in the game, you will not only be at an advantage but also have fun playing them.


The A-tier consists of good overall classes like Heavy Guard, War Medic Soulhacker, and more. All these classes are great, and if you manage to use them well enough, you could get more out of them. This Tier includes classes with good potential and can be very useful in the game.


The B-Tier consists of characters that are not the worst to use. However, they are not the ones that should be your first choice. They are decent characters but don’t have the power to give your enemies a sucker punch in the game.


This Tier consists of classes we don’t recommend using if you are playing the game competitively. You can visit them if you want to try different classes and have fun. These classes dont manage the roles given to them perfectly, so using them could make you fall into a pickle during battle.
