5* Tier List Explanation All 5* Servants are excellent! Their performance often vastly outpaces those of lower rarities and each of them is worth investing in. The tier list is therefore just a comparison tool to judge these Servants by their relative performance. The tier placement is primarily based on a Servant’s current performance, and their placement will often shift with future Interludes and Rank Ups, new competition, and the changing state of the game.
