In Three Hopes, there are 4 tiers of classes:
Players will work their way towards Master classes because they’re the best of the best. Since it’s a Musou game, Three Hopes isn’t that hard. Unless you play on Maddening difficulty, Three Hopes should be a cakewalk as long as characters are leveled and have decent gear.
But there are classes that shine above the others and some classes just underperform. For players who want to know which classes are the best, we’ve created this tier list to show which classes make Three Hopes much easier.

Three Hopes Class Tier List
Here are all the Master classes in Three Hopes along with the tier they each belong to. We’ll explain our reasoning for why each class is in its tier below the table.
|S-tier||Asura, Great Lord, Emperor, Holy Knight, Gremory, Mortal Savant, Saint|
|A-tier||Trickster, Dark Knight, Death Knight, Falcon Knight, Barbarossa, Enlightened One|
|B-tier||Wyvern Lord, Dark Bishop, Great Knight, War Master|
S-tier classes explained
S-tier classes are some of the best classes in Three Hopes. They excel at almost everything and using them makes the game much easier (almost too easy if you ask us).
- Asura: Shez‘s unique class. Asura is a better version of Mortal Savant in every way. The class has high attack speed, high critical hit chance, and amazing crowd control abilities. Combined with its devastating single-target moves, the Asura class is overpowered.
- Great Lord: Dimitri’s unique class. Great Lord has high Strength and Dexterity growth. Its combos are fast and strong. In our gameplay, we could rack up hundreds of KOs in a few minutes because of Dimitri’s Azure Lightning ability. Great Lord is almost as overpowered as Asura.
- Emperor: Edelgard‘s unique class. Emperor has great survivability and damage potential. Its skills make Edelgard faster and allow her to roam around the battlefield with ease.
- Holy Knight: One of the final classes in the Soldier line. Holy Knight is an amazing class due to its high Move and self-healing capabilities. Its combos have a wide AoE allowing you to prevent enemies from attacking almost all the time. Plus, it can use some healing magic for dire situations.
- Gremory: The final class in the Monk line for female units. The Gremory excels at elemental damage and can use fire, thunder, and ice in their combos. This gives them a high chance to deal lots of damage and their AoE is some of the highest in the game. Their dodge move isn’t the best, but it’s good enough.
- Saint: Rhea’s unique class. Saint hits hard and fast. It’s just a reskinned Mortal Savant, but definitely deserves being an S-tier.
- Mortal Savant: One of the final classes in the Myrmidon line. Mortal Savant is one of the fastest classes in the game and has amazingly high critical hit and critical damage skills. Use this class on Felix and you’ll wreck almost every enemy in the game.
A-tier classes explained
- Trickster: One of the final classes in the Myrmidon line. The Trickster is just like Mortal Savant but without innate critical hit and damage abilities. It’s great to use, but Mortal Savant is better in every way.
- Dark Knight: One of the final classes in the Soldier line. We like Dark Knight a lot because it can use fire, ice, and thunder in its attacks to deal elemental damage. It’s almost as good as Holy Knight, but it’s only an A-tier because its elemental attacks make it lose effectiveness against enemy mages since elemental attacks calculate based on a unit’s Magic stat.
- Death Knight: Jeritza‘s unique class. It’s really similar to the Death Knight class, so it stays in the same tier.
- Falcon Knight: One of the final classes in the Solider line for female units only. Falcon Knight is a solid class overall. While it doesn’t excel at any particular thing besides flying, Falcon Knights are speedy and their resistance stats makes dealing with enemy mages much easier.
- Barbarossa: Claude‘s unique class. Barbarossa is a great class because of Claude’s unique Wind skills that make crowd control a breeze (pun intended; we’ve been influenced by Alois). But unlike his counterparts in Edelgard and Dimitri, Barbarossa is only an A-tier because there are a lot of enemies that use bows in the endgame, making Claude susceptible to lots of damage.
- Enlightened One: Byleth’s unique class. Enlightened One is a very strong class that can do a little bit of everything.
B-tier classes explained
- Wyvern Lord: One of the final classes in the Fighter line. Wyvern Lord is really good. There’s not much to say about the class other than its high strength and movement.
- Dark Bishop: The final class in the Monk line for male units. Dark Bishop is a great class with lots of damage. But it’s just outclassed by Gremory and Dark Knight in every way. If you need a male magic user, then Dark Bishop is good. But Dark Knight can give you lots of powerful bonuses and damage too.
- Great Knight: One of the final classes in the Fighter line. Great Knight is just a worse version of its other cavalry counterparts: Holy Knight and Dark Knight. The class is slow and has high defense, but Three Hopes is a power fantasy, so you’ll barely take hits in the first place.
- War Master: One of the final classes in the Fighter line. War Master is a speedy class, but it lacks defenses and isn’t too fun to play given some of the issues we have with the game’s camera.
C-tier classes explained
Here’s why we only placed Bow Knight in the C-tier.
- Bow Knight: Bow Knight is a C-tier class because doesn’t really bring anything to the table other than an advantage against flying enemies (of which there are barely any compared to other classes). Bow Knight also doesn’t play well with the game’s camera so it’s hard to use. Even with Shamir being Best Girl, Bow Knight is a solid C-tier class.
That sums up the Three Hopes class tier list. If more classes are eventually released as DLC, we’ll update this list.
