The current tier list is based on the rankings of All Star Tower Defense YouTuber Blam Spot and input from the community.
All orbs in the game are ranked between S+ and D, with S+ being the strongest and most useful and D being the least. The order within a tier does not matter.
You can equip orbs to any of your unit slots by clicking the Orbs button, and you can only have one of each orb in the game, which means you cannot use the same orb for two units.
The effects of some orbs only apply to a specific unit in the game, while others can be applied to any unit in the game. If you equip a unit-specific orb to a unit that doesn’t correspond to the orb, the unit won’t get the buff.
You can see what unit a specific orb is for in the tier list above under the Unit column.
INITIAL-RNG is the initial attack range of a unit.
