Solo Leveling: Arise (SLA) hunter tier list updated as of 5/13/2024

Hunter Summaries

S+ Tier

  • Cha Hae-In: By far better DPS than Emma and Seo and the best in the game. However, she is on a limited banner, hence hard to get. If you want to whale out on a single unit, she is the way to go.
  • Choi Jong-In: Best mage DPS in Solo Leveling: Arise + a lot of CC in his kit. Very good for comboing enemies and dealing with packs in general. Single-target is superb also. Not as good as Cha, though.
  • Emma Laurent: She is supposed to be a tank, but she is really a DPS with a lot of CC and burn in her kit. All of her attacks also break, so she is good both at opening the fight and chunking broken enemies. Together with Seo, she is the first hunter you want to upgrade.
  • Min Byung Gu: The only SSR support right now and the best healer in the game. You can do without him, but the game is easy mode if you have a healer. Also, I had to rank him up since the last time because the end game is impossible without him.
  • Seo Jiwoo: She has a lot of skills with break and airborne in her kit. Plus, Seo has the best hunter weapon in the game, and with it, boy, does she clap. Not like she doesn’t do that without it, either.

S Tier

  • Baek Yoonho: The best tank in the game overall. The stats on his skills are just ridiculous. His DPS is lower than Emma and Seo’s, though.
  • Lim Tae-Gyu: Extremely good break and DPS (might be the best breaker in Solo Leveling: Arise). He even has some buffs in his kit making him good in any comp.
  • Silver Mane Baek Yoonho (New): A DPS version of Baek that is pretty solid, but without Byung Gu in the team, he dies insanely quickly. Literally, a kamikaze character that can’t carry alone.

A Tier

  • Anna Ruiz: Similar to Lim Tae Gyu but with less break and less overall DPS. However, she can reduce enemy armor with poison zones, which gives her extra value.
  • Kim Chul: Best SR tank on this Solo Leveling: Arise tier list with a lot of break in his kit. Consider him a Walmart version of Yoonho.
  • Lee Bora: She is a debuffer and a DPS. However, she doesn’t do either of those things well enough to be above A tier.
  • Nam Chae-Young: A lot of break, DPS, and interrupts. Great against skill-spamming enemies.

B Tier

  • Hwang Dongsoo: Almost all of his skills are just raw damage and there is absolutely nothing else exciting about him. No reason to take him over other SSRs on this SLA tier list.
  • Jo Kyuhwan: A lot of burn in his kit which benefits some other hunters. Good all-around hunter.
  • Park Heejin: DPS with a debuff cleanse in her kit. She can be very useful on some stages.
  • Woo Jinchul: Watered-down version of Yoonho, Seo, and Emma. Probably the worst SSR tank in SL: A and the one that will most definitely make you want to reroll your account.

C Tier

  • Han Song-Yi: Works well with Anna and has a lot of combos in her kit. If you like to play rogues in MMOs she is for you. Her damage is kind of mid, though.
  • Hwang Dongsuk: More tanky than Kim Chul but worse in all other aspects. Still, the second best SR tank on this Solo Leveling: Arise tier list.
  • Kang Taeshik: Probably the purest DPS among the SR hunters. Still, almost no utility in his kit.
  • Song Chiyul: Has a lot of burn which works with some of the other burn-stacking hunters. Still, kind of underwhelming gameplay.

D Tier

  • Kim Sangshik: Less break but more damage than Kim Chul. If you need a DPS there are better options than him, and the same goes for tanks.
  • Lee Joohee: You get her for free for a reason. Overall bad healer and irrelevant buffer.
  • Park Beom-Shik: Jack of no trades.
  • Yoo Jinho: All of his skills are just worse than those of other SR tanks.
