Shards of War Sentinel Tier List 26.3.61337
All Sentinels categorized into their archetypes and strength
The following list is of course subjective (as long as we don’t have hard data like win/loose percentages and kill/death ratios). However my experience and understanding of Shards of War will give you a very good and accurate impression of which sentinels are the strongest in their category.
Following are the 3 Tier level in which sentinels are categorized in regard to their powerlevel. The strongest Sentinel will always be mentioned first (if there is more than one choice). Although it is not necessary to choose a team constellation consisting all below mentioned roles, it however gives you a higher chance of winning the game (effort to result ratio) if you have at least 4 of the 5 mentioned categories in your team (that means that certain Sentinels should focus on one specific task in the game – that is quite important).
Additional it is important to know that the following Tier list focuses on a solo queue and i will always prefer champions which have more potential to carry a game by yourself. This is by no means a guide or guidance on full team lineups (or how a certain lineup will perform).
Changes in the tier list will be highlighted and explained further down the page.
Powerlevel over 9000
This is the tier level for all Sentinels which exceed in a specific category.
Balanced Sentinel’s categories.
Dps: Vulcan, Striker
Tank: Bastion, Rhino
Support: Gemini, Patches
Nuke: Valkyrie, Cobra, Striker
“Jungler”: Warhead, Vulcan, Rhino
More effort than usual is needed to play the following Sentinels effectively.
Dps: Zel, Rhino
Nuke: Zel, Warhead
Warhead (Dps): His passive (all map objectives are taken in a direct relationship with fighting drones) combined with his raw damage output (at long range) and his 2 Cc (slow and aoe stun) allowing him to become a beast on the battlefield.
Bullwark (Tank): 2 hard cc in his kit (single target + aoe), an activeable shield on a rather short cd and an acceptable gap closer give him the edge on the other tanks.
Flatline (Support): Global and single target heal, slow/speed debuff/buff and a zone ability (very useful in teamfights and lane pushes) making him the best main supporter in the game.
Blitz (Nuke): The Sentinel which deserves OP status in the current game version. His kit is combined so strong that he can engage and kill enemy sentinels without any chance of efficient counterattack. Gap closer and escape mechanism, long silence (enemy can’t use any abilities), movement speed bonus and slow immunity on his ultimate, strong aoe burst (you don’t even have to aim for it) and a passive which reduces your cd by killing/assists.
Gemini (Jungle): Ability to sustain the incoming damage from neutral droids (heal and avoid damage by placing her little helper close) makes her the number one jungler in the game.
