Trial of The Ancestors Unit Tier List (Cheat Sheet)

This article aims to create an unit overview for each tribe and assign tiers to units based on their position in the Trials of the Ancestors tournaments. In this overview, you will be able to see the best units for Trial of the Ancestors tournament by position. This is based on my own experience and has helped me get to 2000 rating.

Units are going to be divided into 4 tiers:

  • S Tier – one of the best units for the position.
  • A Tier – good units for the position, but there are better ones.
  • B Tier – acceptable for the position, if there are no better options available.
  • C Tier – not good for the position.

Navali Tribe

Tuatara (250 Favour) B Tier B Tier B Tier B Tier
Honoured Warrior (250 Favour) B Tier B Tier B Tier B Tier
Honoured Sage (250 Favour) A Tier C Tier C Tier B Tier

Note: Navali units do not excel at any positions, but they can be great fillers if nothing else is available. They are also good to trade for other tribes’ favour if you need it.

Hinekora Tribe

Hinekora’s Horn (550 Favour) A Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier
Mystic Prophet (1000 Favour) S Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier
Death’s Guide (1650 Favour) A Tier A Tier A Tier S Tier

Arohongui Tribe

Tidecaller (800 Favour) S Tier C Tier C Tier S Tier
Lunar Turtle (1000 Favour) A Tier C Tier C Tier S Tier
Moon Dancer (1600 Favour) A Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier

Note: Tidecaller units are fantastic in defense and attack, especially when paired with Sun-blot Band item from Ramako tribe.

Valako Tribe

Thunderbird (800 Favour) B Tier A Tier A Tier B Tier
Storm’s Guard (1100 Favour) B Tier S Tier S Tier B Tier
Storm Conduit (1600 Favour) A Tier B Tier B Tier S Tier

Note: Storm’s Guards are absolutely amazing at sieging enemy totems. Their proximity shield allows them to ignore pretty much any ranged attack. Do not use them in defense, because they can be slow and awkward in that position.

Ramako Tribe

Spear Dancer (650 Favour) B Tier A Tier A Tier B Tier
Sunset Sage (800 Favour) A Tier S Tier S Tier B Tier
Autumnal Archer (1500 Favour) S Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier

Note: Sunset Sage is probably the best flanker / escort unit as well as fair defender. They are the only unit that can banish the totem of Death Guide units without getting stunned and taking damage.

Tukohama Tribe

Warcaller (650 Favour) B Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier
Jade Hulk (900 Favour) B Tier S Tier S Tier B Tier
Jadecrafter (1500 Favour) S Tier B Tier B Tier S Tier

Note: Jade Hulks are good flankers / escorts – they are quick, tanky and ignore taunts.

Rongokurai Tribe

Fieldmaster (600 Favour) A Tier S Tier S Tier A Tier
Goliath of Night (850 Favour) S Tier B Tier B Tier S Tier
Titanic Shell (2300 Favour) S Tier S Tier S Tier B Tier

Note: Fieldmasters are probably some of the best units in the game for their price. They are always available and they can be amazing in the enemy backline, by creating walls to shield your units from ranged attacks. Titanic shells are amazing for 3 positions, but they are too expensive to be used reliably.

Tasalio Tribe

Defense Escort Flanker Attack
Spearfisher (600 Favour) A Tier B Tier B Tier B Tier
Riptide (900 Favour) A Tier A Tier A Tier A Tier
Trawler (1500 Favour) S Tier A Tier B Tier A Tier

Ngamahu Tribe

Defense Escort Flanker Attack
Firebreather (600 Favour) B Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier
Caldera Ravager (1000 Favour) S Tier A Tier B Tier S Tier
Blackbark Demolisher (1400 Favour) B Tier A Tier A Tier B Tier

Note: Caldera Ravagers are my favourite units in the attack and defense position, due to their AoE skills and area denial.

Kitava Tribe

Consuming Kunekune (650 Favour) A Tier B Tier B Tier A Tier
Frenzymonger (900 Favour) C Tier B Tier B Tier S Tier
Bloodbound Warrior (1500 Favour) B Tier A Tier A Tier B Tier

Note: Kitava favour is one of my least favourite ones. Frenzymonger can be very useful in an attack position, where the totem is vulnerable, due to the bonus he gives on death.

Tawhoa Tribe

Defense Escort Flanker Attack
Enraged Kunekune (500 Favour) C Tier B Tier B Tier B Tier
Camouflaged Tuatara (1000 Favour) B Tier A Tier S Tier B Tier
Tawhoa Shaman (1350 Favour) S Tier C Tier C Tier A Tier
