Things to Know

It’s important to note that tier lists in Azur Lane can be subjective and vary depending on the specific content you’re tackling (PvP, PvE, boss fights, etc.) and individual playstyle preferences.

There are several community-driven tier lists available online, which can be a good starting point for understanding the general strengths and weaknesses of different ships.

Focus on ships relevant to your current needs: If you’re aiming for specific content or struggling with a particular challenge, it’s helpful to tailor your tier list to the ships that are most useful in that context. For example, if you’re focusing on PvP, you might prioritize ships with strong burst damage or crowd control abilities.

Ultimately, the best tier list for you is the one that reflects your own playstyle and preferences. Some players might favor high DPS output, while others might prioritize tankiness or utility. Experiment with different ships and see which ones you find most enjoyable and effective.
