Our Realm Royale best class tier list ranks all five classes from best to worst and includes advice on picking the class that matches your playstyle.

Much of the process of choosing the best class in Realm Royale comes down to assessing your own personal playstyle. While some classes are proving particular strong in this current stage of the Alpha, there's no guarantee that this won't change with the inevitable tweaks that will take place in the coming weeks and months.

Choosing the best class also comes down to complimenting the other people you're playing with in Duo or Squads and so it's important to know what your role is within any given match. Communicate with your teammates, find out what their strengths are and see where you can synergise with one another to best effect.

With that said, there are some classes that are considered to be just a little better than the others right now, and so we're going to kick things off with with a breakdown of who's top-dog right now. There are only five classes in the game at present, but based purely on numbers and obvious performance advantage, this is how the community currently stacks the classes up against one another.

When you're done here, make sure you check out our essential Realm Royale guide. You'll be able to access all of our guides coverage on the game from there!

Editor's Note: We've taken the time to update this tier list to reflect what believe to be the strongest classes in the game at the moment. Of course, don't take it as definitive as none of the classes are ridiculously underpowered by any means. They're all viable in the right hands, it's just the top two are clearly the easiest to play, and have to strongest abilities at the moment. Stay tuned for further updates in the future!

The Best Class in Realm Royale - July 2018

From best to worst at the time of publishing:

This is of course subject to a huge amount of change as the Alpha and Beta periods of development play out, but use that as a rough idea of the game's class power levels if you're just looking to jump in and get started. The more you play the game, the better you'll get at the class that most suits your playstyle - regardless of how we or anyone else chooses to rank them.

Before anyone chimes in with "This is completely and utterly wrong", well, we'd have to agree with you to some extent. Remember that a tier list is largely subjective, and our opinions as well as those of the larger community's may not match up with your own. Also bear in mind that there aren't that many classes in Realm Royale, so any advantages are minimal and all classes are perfectly viable in the right hands!

With this said, it's clear as of right now that Mage is the strongest class thanks to its immense survivability and the power of its Legendary weapon. Of course, this could all change with another big patch - we're in Alpha after all!

More Realm Royale guides

Lets turn our attention now to the playstyles that each class in Realm Royale offers. This as much as anything else should influence which of them is the best for you, and that you should focus your attention on mastering.

Assassins

If your idea of a good time in a Battle Royale game involves hiding in the shadows and eliminating opponents from far, far away then choose the Assassin. It's the closest thing the game has to a sniper character and will suit those of you who favour assessing and executing each engagement on your own terms.

Engineers

Fancy chucking turrets and shields around the place to make a right old nuisance of yourself? The Engineer is calling to you in that case, and you also have access to an amazing mobility ability that launches you high into the air. This makes you very difficult to deal with, while also providing you with an amazing vertical advantage over the competition.

Hunters

Hunter's are a little bit trickier to play and so although they're very powerful it probably wouldn't be the first port of call for the true newcomer. You need to juggle stealth and mobility with this character, but if you're nimble on the keyboard then you should settle into this class pretty quickly.

Mages

The Mage is capable of conjuring up defensive walls and also becoming invincible for a brief period of time (3 seconds). That may be just enough to help you fling out a fireball or two without interruption, and finish off an encounter nice and quickly.

Warriors

If you like nothing more than to soak up damage for your team and help keep them alive, then the Warrior may well be the class you're looking for. Although a strong defensive choice, the Warrior can also play extremely aggressively, with mobility options that help you get up close and personal in a flash.

That's the end of the second edition of our look at the best classes in Realm Royale. We'll have another update for you later on this month.
