Azur Lane ship tier list breakdown

prinz eugen azur lane

You may have seen our list of the best ships you can play in the hit mobile game Azur Lane, but as dedicated gamers may know, there are many more where it came from, with several ” ship girls “available to choose from. So that you can see how each ship ranks, we’ve broken down the full list of available ships into levels. They range from grade D to grade S, and you are spoiled for choice.

The D-grade is a decent enough ship to start with, but it’s not strong enough to cut it down in the long run. Meanwhile, the S-grade is the top-of-the-line ship you can ask for in terms of firepower, evasion, defense, and strength. So, if you have to make a choice, S rating is the best solution. And the other intermediate levels are definitely worth experimenting with.

Here’s our full tier list of all ships available in Azur Lane. We have included the name and type of each ship as well as their rank.

Level D

You can use them when you first start out, but don’t expect them to guide you through the game. You’ll be replacing these ships fairly quickly.

  • Izuzu- light cruiser
  • Zeppy – Aircraft carrier
  • Chaser – Light aircraft carrier
  • Anniversary Kizuna AI – Aircraft Carrier
  • Curacoa Retrofit – Light cruiser
  • Fumiruiru – Aircraft carrier
  • Akagi – Aircraft carrier
  • Taihou – Aircraft carrier
  • Sendai Retrofit – Light cruiser
  • Tanikaze – Destroyer
  • Shangri-La – Aircraft carrier

Level C

Aside from the Prinz Eugen, most of these ships will likely need a replacement halfway through the game. Nonetheless, some players may want to give them a shot if they are looking for a challenge. You may have also noticed that some ships have “Retrofit” in their name. These can be “modernized” to achieve increased scarcity. For collectors, they can make a real solid addition to the crew.
