In this tier list for Limbus Company, we will be ranking the best identities at the time of global launch while taking several factors into consideration. When taking into account the best identities, we must first address that all of them are ranked according to their skills and usage in different types of content. The base rarity and availability of the character will also play an important role in determining their ranking on the tier list.
Limbus Company is still a freshly released game and players have not much knowledge regarding the actual meta. This tier list is just to be used as a reference point of view for new players as not all players have access to the same characters. Secondly, no such separate database is present in-game where we can take a look at all the identities along with their skills. Hence, we are going to be referencing the in-game dispense identities while building this tier list. All players have different identities and different E.G.O's as they play the game. Players should take inspiration from this tier list while building their teams. Let's take a look at some of the identities in S tier:
W Corp. Cleanup Agent is a 3-Star identity for the character Emil Sinclair. His character description reads as follows – "Even with the volatile nature of human growth around his age taken into consideration, this sinner seems to get particularly startled or frown when spoken to. He isn't used to real combat at the moment, meaning that he may struggle to keep himself together at the sight of something as mild as spilt innards at first.
As there may be those with violent tendencies among your crew, we recommend taking an approach focused on positive reinforcement with this sinner." Cleanup Agent's 1st active skill RIP is a single targeted damaging attack that deals 1 Stack of rupture on the target while also gaining 2 charge count. His 2nd active skill Leap inflicts 2 stacks of Fragile and gains 4 charge counts. Cleanup Agent's 3rd active skill RIP Space states that he will spend 10 stacks of charge count to gain 4 skill power stacks. If your Charge Count is less than 10, you will lose 20% HP as well to get the same 4 stacks of skill power.
Kurokumo Wakashu is a 3-Star identity for the character Ryoshu. Her character description reads as following – "As they say, every person has their own creed—and it's only right to respect it as the Executive Manager. But with some creeds, you will have difficulty in even simply pretending to sympathize. You will have noticed that the sinner in question is a silent chain-smoker whose eyes shine with a euphoric gleam only during battle. She believes that senselessly destroying the enemy's heads is an uncultured act and a step backward for art. If you are at your wit's end, please press the red button included in your welcome kit."
Her 1st active ability Focus Strike is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 38 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 3 stacks of Paralysis. Kurokumo Wakashu's 2nd active ability Clean Up is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 38 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 2 stacks of Bleed. She also inflicts 2 turn Attack down. Her 3rd active ability Lenticular Swirl is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 38 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 2 stacks of Bleed, 3 stacks of Bleed Count and 3 turn Offense Count down.
Tingtang Gangleader is a 3-Star Identity for the character Hong Lu. His character description reads as following – "A sinner who had lived an affluent life before becoming our company's asset. As such, he has a certain admiration for a free life; but occasionally, he may make ignorant and unsavory questions in regards to the food cooked by a certain other sinner or other aspects of the low-lives' lowly culture. This can cause much irritation for the other sinners. However, it is important to note that no sarcastic undertones are contained in his curiosity-driven inquiries, so it is ill-advised to let them get physical over it."
His 1st active ability Throat Slit is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 38 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 4 stacks of Bleed. Tingtang Gangleader's 2nd active ability Shank is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 38 damage to the enemy along with inflicting an additional 6 damage if the coin flips Heads. His 3rd active ability Mutilate is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 38 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 3 more damage if the coin flips Head. He will re-use this skill if an enemy dies with the first use.
R Corp. 4th pack Reindeer is a 3-Star identity for the character Don Quixote. Her character description reads as follows – "There is no sinner that can outmatch this one's level of passion. An avid aficionada of all things Fixer, she adorns herself with a variety of Fixer-related merchandise. They won't affect her performance in combat one way or another, so there is no need for you to restrict her from keeping her decorations. She is deeply immersed in the role of a righteous Fixer, hence the exaggerated mannerisms akin to those of an actor. (Has such a thing ever existed, really?) It's advised to play along with her for a smooth mission."
Her 1st active ability Mind Strike is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 32 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 1 stack of Sinking. R Corp 4th Pack Reindeer's 2nd active ability Flaying Surge is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 32 damage to the enemy along with gaining 5 charge counts. Her 3rd active ability Mind Whip is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 32 damage to the enemy along with expending all of her charge counts for more damage. If the charge counts are less than 10, she will target a random enemy with an unopposed attack.
Kurokumo Henchwoman is a 3-Star identity for the character Ishmael. Her character description reads as follows – "You may be disheartened by the defective state of many of your sinners, but do not worry; this sinner is one of the few who can carry out most missions without much complaint. She is likely to make reasonable judgements, so it is a good idea to start conversations while looking her way if you're seeking sound advice. However, you mustn't forget: this sinner has survived an absurd voyage in a far and wide body of water. Her patience may run deep, but once you take a wrong turn with her, it will be a difficult task to regain her trust."
Her 1st active ability Sharpened Blade is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 35 damage to the enemy along with inflicting 4 stack of Poise. Kurokumo Henchwoman's 2nd active ability Scattering Slash is a single targeted damaging skill that deals 35 damage to the enemy along with gaining 1 Poise count.
