Goddess of Genesis S Team Guide: Recommended Team Builds to Dominate Each Game Mode

ZlongGames’ Goddess of Genesis S has made a name for itself with the overall appeal of its graphics and the quality of gameplay it offers. While the game hosts a wide variety of contents and features that can overwhelm strategy RPG neophytes, the in-game tutorial and the beginning chapters of the story sufficiently prepares every player for the more challenging aspects of the game.

If you have just started playing Goddess of Genesis S and still grasping the basic features and mechanics of the game, then we highly recommend that you read through our Goddess of Genesis beginner’s guide. Our beginner’s guide comes packed with a lot of useful tips and strategies to help you understand the more important aspects of the game and jumpstart your adventure.

As the characters you unlock, upgrade, and use in combat are at the center of what makes Goddess of Genesis S an immersive and exciting experience, we have also ranked each hero in our Goddess of Genesis tier list. Expectedly, the tier list is opinionated and can be very different from everyone else’s opinion of each character but, for the most part, the upper echelon of the tier list are comprised of units highly regarded by most players.

Each hero can be built differently as well based on the gears and gems you equip them with. This means that even lower grade heroes and those that do not belong to upper tiers can still shine with the right build and that a variety of players using the same hero can garner different results based on how they build the hero.

More importantly, battles in Goddess of Genesis S are largely, if not entirely, team-based. This means that champions ought to be considered relative to the team you will use them with. Simply mixing in heroes belonging to the top tier will not suffice to ensure each one’s maximum utilization. Goddess of Genesis S provides a wide variety of aspects to consider in team-building.

Characters are divided across 6 different classes each with its own unique strengths and limitations. There are also 5 different elements to consider that play around the proverbial “rock-paper-scissors” in dealing and receiving combat damage.

With parties consisting of 5 main characters and 3 support units, you would naturally want to maximize each character based on whether they will act as a member of the main team or as a support unit. There are also elemental bonuses that can be unlocked if there are 3 champions in your team with the same element. These same buffs will have greater effect for teams with 5 champions of the same element. Given these mechanics in team-building, an ideal set-up can mean 5 heroes of the same elemental affinity paired with 3 others from another element.

Considering all the above, there are still a couple of consideration to make. When it comes to attackers, some champions excel in dealing damage to a single target while others specialize in AoE attacks. Some deal physical damage while other deal magic damage.

Depending on the game mode and the general roster of enemies to contend with, having a good mix of these aspects can ensure more chances of victory on the first attempt. Despite the numerous game modes and dungeons available in Goddess of Genesis S, we will be categorizing our team roster recommendations as suitable for PvE.

Considering the choices for characters in the teams below, simply banking more on defense and survival can make them more suitable for PvP. Each of the team we listed contains only 1 guardian and only 1 healer, for the most part. Priests are also considered for the support roster as well.

For PvP, you should consider priests as members of the main team and, if possible, also consider squeezing in an extra guardian and a hero that specializes in debuffing oponents. You would naturally want to bomb enemies in PvE with AoE attacks and massive damage, but in PvP, your prime consideration ought to be survival and debilitating enemy units.

Fire Elemental Team

goddess of genesis s fire elemental team

Main Units:

Dracula [SSR – Guardian – Fire]

Hattori Hanzo [SR – Assassin – Fire]

Lucifer [SSR – Assassin – Earth]

Medusa [SR – Mage – Earth]

Michael [SSR – Warrior – Fire]

Support Units:

Apollo [SR – Mage – Fire]

Loki [SR – Mage – Earth]

Venus [SR – Priest – Fire]

This team composition is designed to make full use of the fire element bonus that provides all allies a 30% increase in critical damage. It requires 5 heroes under the fire elemental group. In this case, the challenge lies in ensuring that the team is not disadvantaged a lot against water elemental enemy units. As such, the best 3 remaining spots ought to be considered for earth elemental units, which are strong against water elemental types. This will also unlock an elemental bonus that grants allies a 15% additional block.

If you are going for a fire elemental team, then Dracula should be your automatic first pick. He is a strong guardian with leach and a powerful AoE physical attack that that stack attack down on enemies. For most PvE content, having a guardian around should suffice to keep you competitive across a wide variety of game modes as the critical aspect of most battles relate only to eliminating enemies within a certain number of turns.

Hattori Hanzo is also a strong offense character that is worth including in the team either as a main character or as a support unit. His ultimate skill, Hell Naraku, and support skill, Hell Dance, deals AoE physical damage to enemies.

Michael is a strong single target attacker that comes with a 50% chance of reviving himself once in each battle. He definitely suits as the boss killer in the team and better considered as part of the main team.

Venus may pale in comparison with other healers in Goddess of Genesis S but since we are building a fire team, then she fits perfectly in. Venus has decent single target and mass heals and while focus on offense is the bigger priority in PvE, having her in the main team is recommended in difficult battles.

Apollo is sadly the better of the only 2 fire mages in Goddess of Genesis S and while he is a decent character as well, his skills are more suitable for defensive plays. Although he does have an AoE magic damage skill, his ultimate and support skills are for debuffing allies. As such, it is better to keep him on a support role for the team.

If you are prepping to counter water elemental units with earth types, then you should consider Lucifer as she can dish out massive damage against an enemy unit and can even gain an extra turn if she successfully kills the target. She can remove shields as well enabling her and her teammates to squeeze in even more damage.

What this team lacks is a magic damage-dealer and both Medusa and Loki can make up for that. Between the 2, though, it is better to keep Medusa as part of the main team as the petrify her ultimate can inflict on the target works best with a 100% chance.

Water Elemental Team

Main Units:

Abe no Seimei [SSR – Mage – Water]

Daphne [SSR – Ranger – Water]

Dracula [SSR – Guardian – Fire]

Mary [SSR – Mage – Water]

Michael [SSR – Warrior – Fire]

Support Units:

Gabriel [SSR – Mage – Water]

Hattori Hanzo [SR – Assassin – Fire]

Siren [SSR – Priest – Water]

It may seem a little awkward to consider water as your main element for a team built for offense given that the full buff grants a 20% increase in both physical and magic evade. In this sense, however, you can consider less heroes built for defense on the main team as these buffs can provide a huge defensive help for PvE content.

Considering a water elemental teams means having some disadvantage against enemy teams with a lot of earth elemental units. As such, squeezing in some fire elements and going for the 15% crit boost is recommended.

There are a lot of powerful mages belonging to the water elemental group but Abe no Seimei tops our list. She has a strong magic AoE attack that has a 40% chance to inflict freeze on enemies. Mary, on the other hand, deals a strong magic AoE attack on enemies as well and can also grant allies a leech effect. Lastly, Gabriel as a support unit can deal AoE magic damage as well, and can even add a stack of an existing debuff on them.

One of the newer SSR heroes to join the fray, Daphne is a powerful single target damage dealer and if enemies are immune to magic damage, then she can rip them apart. Her ultimate also relinquishes the target of all buffs and shields making them more vulnerable to damage.

Another new addition to Goddess of Genesis’ growing roster is Siren, who is a priest that you would love to keep for more than her healing prowess. As a member of the main team, Siren can remove debuffs and grant her allies Revenge of the Tides, which can give them an ability to counterattack when hit by an active skill. Initially, though, she is better kept as a support unit for her AoE heal instead.

After reading through the first team recommendation, you should have an idea of which fire elemental heroes are best considered for this team. Naturally, Dracula, Hattori Hanzo, and Michael are the best picks to join in on the water elemental team.

Dracula will not only contribute to the team’s survival but also help in dealing physical damage to enemies. Michael serves as the fifth member of the main team and serve as a single target eliminator like Daphne. Hattori Hanzo can be kept as a support and swapped in with Michael if you feel the need for more AoE damage-dealers.

Earth Elemental Team

goddess of genesis s earth elemental team

Main Units:

Abe no Seimei [SSR – Mage – Water]

Daphne [SSR – Ranger – Water]

Lucifer [SSR – Assassin – Earth]

Medusa [SR – Mage – Earth]

Valkyrie [SSR – Guardian – Earth]

Support Units:

Athena [SSR – Priest – Earth]

Gabriel [SSR – Mage – Water]

Loki [SR – Mage – Earth]

Like the water elemental team, considering earth elemental units and going for the maximum element boost for having 5 of them earns your team an increased block of 30%. While this is again a defensive buff, taking advantage of it while battling through Goddess of Genesis’ PvE content means squeezing in more offense type units in your main team.

Your main DPS unit is Lucifer although he does not have AoE attacks. Valkyrie is a guardian and does not excel in dealing damage but her ultimate can help deal AoE physical damage to targets as well. Athena stands as one of the best healers in Goddess of Genesis but for most part of PvE combat, especially the early levels, you can very much afford to keep her in the support roster. With no better AoE damage dealer for the earth elemental group, Medusa stands as your best magic AoE damage-dealer while Loki serves as the support one to complete your 5 earth elemental heroes.

To ensure that you will not be heavily disadvantaged against enemy teams that have a number of fire elementals in them, a trio of water elemental heroes can provide the best counter-offense for your earth element team. Abe no Seimei, Daphne, and Gabriel stand as the best units to fill in those spots.

Both Abe no Seimei and Daphne can dish out great damage so they can be considered as members of the main team. Gabriel can be considered for the support role and complete the requirement to activate the 10% increase in physical and magic evade for the whole team.

Light Elemental Team

goddess of genesis s light elemental team

Main Units:

Freya [SSR – Mage – Shadow]

Joan of Arc [SSR – Guardian – Light]

Hades [SSR – Warrior – Shadow]

Princess Longji [SSR – Assassin – Light]

Snow White [SR – Warrior – Light]

Support Units:

Alice [SR – Mage – Light]

Artemis [SSR – Ranger – Shadow]

Isabella [SSR – Priest – Light]

Going for a team with 5 members belonging to the light elemental group means gaining an extra 20% damage reduction for the whole team. In our opinion, this is the best defensive buff to obtain as far as elemental composition of the team is concerned, and while defense is not as critical for most part of the early PvE battles, it also presents more opportunities to focus on having heroes that can dish out some serious damage.

One good thing about keeping a light elemental team is that you will never be totally disadvantages in battle regardless of which elements the enemy team has. You will take in more damage from shadow elements but these units take more damage from you as well, which negates the whole elemental advantage aspect of combat.

This means that you can very much consider any other element to fill in the remaining 3 spots for your team with an intent to secure another elemental buff. For offense, nothing beats the shadow buff of an extra 10% bonus damage.

There are a few choices for light elemental heroes as far as damage-dealing is concerned. Princess Longji, which is one of the new additions in the roster of heroes, is the top choice. Princess Longji possesses a strong single target physical attack as well as strong AoE ultimate skill. Snow White is not the usual favorite in Goddess of Genesis S but for this team, her AoE damage ultimate that comes with charm, which reduces the enemy team’s strength and intelligence can work wonders. Joan of Arc is a guardian and does not excel in dealing damage but her AoE damage works the same way as Snow White’s and also stacks enemies with charm.

Isabella is the undisputed queen of healers in Goddess of Genesis and as much as she always belongs in the main team for almost everyone’s roster, we are keeping her in support until the team faces a difficult challenge. Completing the 5-unit light heroes setup is Alice, who can charm and put enemies to sleep. For this team, we are keeping her on a support role and instead call on her for the extra energy boost.

The offensive boost begins as you squeeze in some shadow elemental units into the team. Hades, Freya, and Artemis can tremendously increase the team’s damage potential on top of having the 3 shadow heroes boost everyone’s damage by 10%. Hades has an AoE damage skill as well as a very strong single target ultimate that instantly kills a target with HP below 50%.

Freya stands as the main magic damage dealer and also squeezes in a stack of charm on targets. Although Artemis is a superb damage-dealer as well, keeping her in support works well for the team with a strong single target damage that comes with a 50% chance to stun.

Shadow Elemental Team

goddess of genesis s shadow elemental team

Main Units:

Artemis [SSR – Ranger – Shadow]

Dracula [SSR – Guardian – Fire]

Freya [SSR – Mage – Shadow]

Hades [SSR – Warrior – Shadow]

Jester [SR – Assassin – Shadow]

Support Units:

Hattori Hanzo [SR – Assassin – Fire]

Hestia [SSR – Priest – Fire]

Mephisto [SSR – Guardian – Shadow]

Considering elemental buffs based on the elemental composition of teams, this is what we consider as the best choice for a PvE Team.As far as elemental bonus is concerned. Nothing beats an extra 20% damage bonus to all members of the team.

Given that elemental advantages work reciprocally between light and shadow type heroes, you can afford to consider any other element to fill up the 3 remaining spots for your team. As offense is your priority here, going for 3 fire elemental heroes for an added 15% increase in crit is the best option.

There is no shortage of DPS characters under the shadow element group in Goddess of Genesis S. To start off, Hades stands as one of the best killers in the game with his ultimate and his Soul Reaper skill that deals AoE damage is a huge plus, especially for PvE battles. Freya stands as your main source of magic damage and she deals heavy magic damage to all enemy units as well. Artemis works well both against a single enemy and a group of enemies as her ultimate does 6 shots with 5 hitting random enemies. This means less enemies make each one take more damage from her ultimate.

Jester can help out in dishing physical damage against all enemies as well. Mephisto can work as a support to complete the 5 members needed to trigger the buff and the shield he grants can serve as an excellent support skill in dire times.

For fire elemental heroes, Dracula, Hattori Hanzo, and Hestia stand as our top picks. On top of the bonus 15% critical chance, Dracula serves as the support within the main team and on top of the AoE physical damage, reducing the enemies attack as well as damage reduction from Soul Link should suffice as the team’s main defensive buff. Hattori Hanzo can provide extra AoE damage while Hestia can further boost a main characters offensive strength.

Considering only 2 elements for your team has the obvious advantage of elemental boosts, but the same can be very limiting as there are only a number of heroes per given element. Chances are that you will not have an easy time obtaining all of them, particularly the SSR graded ones. If you are having a difficult time with the 5-3 setup, then a 3-3 composition should be considered next, keeping 2 slots open for heroes under any other element while keeping 2 active boosts for your entire team.

There are various ways to build up strong teams that cut across different elemental affinities as well and our team composition recommendations as well as anyone else’s should not prevent you from experimenting rosters with your favorite heroes, most especially the ones you have. Different game modes will evoke changes in most rosters, even the best crafted ones.

As Goddess of Genesis S is expected to bring in more content and more heroes in future updates, as well as make adjustments to some heroes in the current roster, even tried and tested team setups can still undergo some adjustments. Again, you should also consider the gear and gem features in the game as well when it comes to building the perfect team for your needs.

And that sums up all the tips for team building in Goddess of Genesis S. We hope that you learned a lot from the team compositions we shared and that reading our guide will enable you to come up with new ideas or make adjustments to your current teams more effectively. If you feel that your personal selection of characters or current team setups can help others build a better team as well, be sure to share them as well as your thoughts on the matter via the comment section below!
