Character Damage Potential Lists

From Vindictus Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The purpose of these lists are to provide a general idea of the damage potential of every character relative to one other. These lists assume optimal performance and equal stats.

Legend[edit | edit source]

  • Damage refers to damage over time, or DPS.
  • S3 Raids refer to all Season 3 Raids (level 90, 95, and 100).
  • RAR refers to Royal Army Raids.
  • Party play means attracting the boss' aggression once every 4 to 12 attacks, depending on the raid size.
  • Solo play means attracting the boss' aggression 100% of the time.
  • Skill floor refers to the skill required to perform a character's basic recommended damage rotation.
  • Skill ceiling refers to the skill required to deal most to all of the optimal damage.

Disclaimers[edit | edit source]

  • As with any "Tier List," these lists are highly subjective.
  • All characters are viable for end-game content.
  • While tiers do exist, be advised that all but 2-4 characters operate within 20% of each other.
