The Defect Tier List

The characters from the defect tier list have insurmountable attacking prowess. Well, most of the characters use a unique mechanism to channel the power TO and FRO with the help of Orbs. On top of that, there is a surfeit of passive talents that the characters put to use when in combat; ultimately, leading to a greater win rate.

Apart from this, the defect starts with three orbs initially and then can be increased with the help of relics and cards.

Conclusion

This brings Slay the Spire tier list to a close. I know there are a lot of sub-powers to select from, and it can be strenuous at times to finalize a single card. But this is not how this game works. You need to collaborate with your peers, and friends and charge forward in the battle. Happy Gaming!
