Disclaimer: The aggregate list is an average of the tier lists from multipler JP gaming sites. It is compiled automatically by a script. I endeavor to have as little influence on the results as possible. Feel free to refer to the FAQ. Don’t take these ratings as fact; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which leads are actually the best for your specific situation.
Much of this week’s movement is due to Game8’s restructuring where they eliminated both the SSS and B tiers from their list. Somewhat surprisingly, only a few cards were actually dropped from the aggregate as a result.
JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note
I’ve actually been playing my JP alt much more than my NA accounts and DAthena is the reason why. The team just feels so busted that it feels silly playing NA. Even if Aizen and Ra Dragon are similarly busted, I feel that DAthena addresses all problem Arena 3 floors elegantly and quickly. After being able to play all three leads firsthand, I can say that I wholeheartedly agree with the change to make them all tier-1 choices.
Change: Added to 3
I was a little skeptical about Astaroth last week, but I did see some potential. After watching some more videos, I think she’s being a little underestimated in the aggregate. I think Game8 has it right by having her in their second best tier. There’s still a huge gap between her and the big three, and sometimes I have trouble seeing beyond that, but I do like her abilities quite a bit.
Similar to Astaroth, I think Anubis is being slightly underestimated.

The farming climate is shifting and I guess these changes reflect that. As JP events are focusing on rank EXP bonuses rather than SDR invades and 10x +eggs, the big three reign supreme while the scraps are picked up by more all around leads. However, as NA lacks PAD Radar, I think when we get these changes our farming needs will be a little different as we can’t supplement our drops (mainly SDRs, +eggs and Pys) through that app. I’m actually fairly interested in how GungHo will handle this transition on NA.
