Updated PvE/PvP Tier list 2021 (2023)

Currently this is just my opinion with suggestions from other peopleand any dino not listed I just don't have enough of an opinion/no suggestionto rank them. comment if you believe a dino should be ranked somewhere, and make sure to justify it.

PvE Tiers

These tames are ranked by how well they can gather resources, hunt, fight bosses and whatever other utilities they have for PvE activities.

S Tier (tames that help tribes tons with the reasons listed above, or have special niches that are useful)

Tek Stryder (gathers lots of resources, makes other tames obsolete)

Thylacoleo (great for caving with a decent 4-5k health and strong damage along with a guaranteed bleed attack and climbing.)

Gacha (can produces almost any resource at good rates but requires a snow owl)

Argentavis (flyer with good health, stamina carry weight and can carry lots of utility dinos like ankys and doeds.)

Dung Beetle (terrible stats but have a unique niche of being able to convert feces into fertilizer making it amazing for gardening, also produces small amounts of oil which helps)

Yutyrannus (powerful fear and courage roars that gives it an invaluable spot in boss fights and genesis hunts)

Rex (does tons of damage and has good health, one of the best boss-fighting tames in the game)

Therizinosaurus (gathers fiber, hide, berries and lots of other resources, also has resource levels)

A Tier (tames that help a lot in PvE activities but are slightly outclassed and/or have hinderances)

Maewing (good berry gathering, great mobility and makes mass-raising other creatures much easier with its nursing ability)

Moschops (auto harvest, outclassed by tames such as the theri though)

Snow Owl (good at fighting and moving around, its pellets are the second best fertilizer in the game and are the best thing to feed Gachas for lots of loot)

Pteranodon (one of the fastest flyers in the game, very good for exploring the map in early game but is very weak and frail)

Woolly Rhino (good boss fighting mount with its insane charge damage, only really viable on the center/rag/valg bosses though, outclassed by rex)

Rock Drake (very powerful and the best mobility you can get on Aberration (would be S tier on that map) and can go invisible making it hard for wild creatures to detect you)

Crystal Wyverns (early game tames that are very powerful and allow you to easily get around the map without much risk)

Mantis (can be equipped with weapons and tools to give it a variety of uses, but its pretty frail)

Shadowmane (great mobility, good for bosses, however its not nearly as strong thanks to the latest patch)

Tusoteuthis (powerful underwater mount that is great for fighting moeder and other underwater creatures, but of course its restricted to water.

Megachelon (giant platform saddle allowing for a mobile base, can go both underwater and on land giving it decent versatility.)

Reaper King (lots of health and very high damage make it good for fighting bosses, but its quite hard to obtain making other creatures more favorable)

B Tier (tames that help a decent amount in PvE but have pretty big flaws and/or are outclassed)

Giganotosaurus (very hard to tame, but has insane damage, good health and can do a lot, just watch out for the enrage, too big to warp into most boss arenas though)

Deinonychus (raptor 2.0 that can climb and doesn't take fall damage along with being able to bleed bosses, but thats pretty much its only use.)

Sabertooth (good caving mount but is outclassed by thylacoleo)

Managarmr (great mobility while still being allowed in caves, kinda outclassed by most wyverns in terms of strength and its lack of full flight, pretty weak against bosses)

Direbear (collects honey well and can fight, thats about it though)

Wyverns (pretty strong all around fighters but are very late game and generally not that great for PvE then)

Direwolf (basically the same as the sabertooth)

Velonasaur (quills are great for taking out weaker targets and it can be a decent background shooter for bosses along with OSD/element node defense, great for killing lava golem)

Mosasaurus (powerful underwater tame but very slow with a wide turning circle, has a platform saddle but megachelon's is better)

Megalodon (great for fighting underwater in general, can do great against Moeder on genesis but is outclassed by creatures like the Mosa and Tuso)

Castoroides (decent at gathering wood but is outclassed and pretty squishy, better when wild where they can build dams)

Stegosaurus (decent at gathering wood, thatch and berries but is outclassed)

Trike (can gather berries and do some fighting but is pretty severely outclassed)

C Tier (tames that offer some use but are outclassed or have pretty major flaws)

Enforcer (can be made pretty early in the game on extinction and does a good job against corrupted enemies, can easily defend lower tier OSDs but thats about it)

Desert Titan (can act as an aircraft carrier but is only really used for fighting the King Titan)

Forest Titan (has a few uses but is mainly just for fighting the King Titan)

Ice Titan (general all-around fighter, mainly just for the King Titan though)

Noglin (mess around and have fun, can be used to get annoying wild dinos out of your way but thats about it)

Parasaur (has a radar ability which could help find enemies when hunting or when wild dinos attack your base, but thats about it, severely outclassed in terms of berry gathering)

Phiomia (feed it stimberries and you get a lot of poop, but just having a lot of tames should give you enough even without one of these)

Paracer (can act as a mobile feeding trough or mobile ballista but thats about it)

Ankylosaurus (gathers lots of metal, crystal, obsidian and berries and can be carried by an argy, however it gets outclassed by the tek stryder)

(Video) 🌟 Black Desert PVE & PVP Class Guide for Beginners (2023)

Doedicurus (gathers stone and other resources but its outclassed by the tek stryder)

Diplodocus (doesn't deal any damage but has high weight and lots of seats allowing it to be decent for transporting players or items as a pack mule)

D Tier (tames that offer little use or have very niche abilities)

Megaloceros (only the males are any use, and even then they aren't great)

Brontosaurus (same roles as a Paracer but big, slow and annoying to use)

Megalosaurus (great damage and decent health but the fact that you can only really use it at night makes it kinda useless, however on aberration that doesn't apply making it S tier there.)

Megalania (okay stats and can climb, but thats about it)

Sarco (decent stats and can swim, they can also scare away piranhas but its not something anyone really tames)

Kaprosuchus (not great stats, can grab creatures but is incredibly outclassed with that)

Terror Bird (can jump and glide but is quite weak and frail)

Raptor (early game fighting mount, but pretty trash other than that)

F Tier (tames that really don't help a tribe)

Coelacanth (literally does nothing)

Piranha (could guard an underwater pen but is outclassed by Sabertooth Salmon)

Sabertooth Salmon (has a bleed attack that makes it okay for guarding an underwater pen but thats about it.)

Dodo (very weak, doesn't help)

PvP Tiers

These tames are ranked by how well they help a tribe with base raiding, base defending, open combat, sabotage and other PvP utilities.

S Tier (tames that can do a lot for a tribe in terms of combat)

Giganotosaurus (can cause major havoc to an enemy tribe trying to move their tames or build a base, but can backfire in some cases)

Bloodstalker (great mobility and can pull someone off their mount, good for sabotage/open combat)

Shadowmane (the chain attack can very easily dismount someone which can hardcounter many dangerous PvP tames)

Noglin (great for sabotage and trolling, you can mind control a player into turning off their generators then walk them into a trap to then easily raid the base)

Tusoteuthis (great for sabotaging players near the water, can drag them in for an easy kill, can also wreck rafts/underwater bases)

Paracer (amazing for pushing with the right plat saddle builds, also works as a soaker)

(Video) BDO - THE BEST PVP CLASS? | Black Desert Highlights

Yutyrannus (fear and courage roars are great for just about anything combat-related)

Mek (lots of use all around for sieging and open combat, great for killing someone's titan)

Tapejara (great mobility, three seats making it a deadly aerial mount and with the tek saddle it can melt tek turrets)

Stegosaurus (easy to tame and is great for soaking turrets)

A Tier (tames that are still great for pvp but are outclassed by others)

Maewing (good mobility for fighting, and can steal other tribe's babies if they leave them out)

Poison Wyvern (snipe enemies, just dont use the breath attack at close range)

Pteranodon (amazing for picking and suicide runs, very frail though)

Lightning Wyvern (small stun but tons of targetted damage really fast)

Astrodelphis (great at killing wyverns and other aerial combat)

Megachelon (amazing health makes it a great soaker, can also allow you to use land creatures such as gigas underwater)

Spino (great for dealing lots of damage as long as there is water nearby for the hydration buff)

Gasbags (great at soaking turrets with its 90% damage reduction as long as you keep it fully inflated)

Velonasaur (lots of use for both grounding flyers, sniping enemies or as a base defense turret that can shred soakers like stegos/rock golems/anything really)

Managarmr (has a decent-range ice breath that can freeze players quite easily, great mobility for open combat)

Snow Owl (ice dive bomb is strong, can heal allies in a raid/open combat, can dismount and freeze enemies)

Mantis (has lots of different abilities based on what you equip it with, like a base defender with clubs or shredder with swords)

Rex (with the tek saddle you can push quite easily as long as there is a soaker)

Ice Titan (mobile siege tower, very strong attacks and can wreak some havoc on an open battlefield, hard to tame and temporary.)

Gasbags (when puffed up it has a serious damage reduction making it good for soaking, but can be deflated relatively easily)

Voidwyrm (can dismount players with its breath attack, but can be pretty hard to tame along with being relatively outclassed by Shadowmane)

Reaper King (very powerful in raids once you have dropped most-all of the turrets, along with being strong in open PvP)

Lightning Wyvern (does tons of damage to players and tames, probably the best of all the wyverns)

B Tier (tames that can provide use to early game pvp tribes but have flaws/are outclassed)

(Video) 🔥Top 10 PVE Classes in BDO 2023🔥

Lymantria (has a small niche in base defending with its slow and stamina drain thanks to its poison cloud, but as a flyer its trash)

Purlovia (ambush base raiders of their mounts, but it's better used as a hidden vault to store important items/cryos in the event that your base gets raided)

Therizinosaur (has high damage and could be put on wander-aggressive to shred turret soakers, but can be pretty easily killed)

Blood Crystal Wyvern (health drain + healing allows it to be decent at killing tames in open combat, but not that great otherwise)

Ember Crystal Wyvern (has a strong fire breath, can kill ground players/tames)

Basilosaurus (can soak underwater but is kinda hard to use and there are better options)

Griffin (Ground pound and high mobility can make it good for defending/open combat, not much other use though)

Kaprosuchus (can grab someone off their mount while defending which can be a death sentence for them, pretty weak and frail otherwise though)

C Tier (tames that could theoretically be used for pvp but are either outclassed or just not great in general)

Desert Titan (has uses such as an aerial aircraft carrier or for other raiding, but thats about it)

Argentavis (can carry bigger creatures and do the same things as a Ptera but is sluggish and can die more easily)

Diplodocus (decent health and lots of seats on the saddle can make it a decent battle mount for big tribes or as the front part of an army)

Raptor (can pounce someone off their mount, but there are better tames for that job)

Carno (like a small guard dog with its impale but small, pretty slow and not hard to kill)

Allosaur (a pack of them can do decent damage to enemy tames or guard a base with their bleed but thats about it)

Plesiosaur (like a weaker mosa, can be used as an underwater siege machine but not great)

Troodon (can easily knock out enemy players as a base defender but is very weak and frail)

Ravager (can use ziplines and has a bleed but is too weak to really do much)

D Tier (tames that could be used but are outclassed/have major flaws)

Megalosaur (becomes very sluggish and knocks out during the day, but due to its hindering ability not working on Ab it would be A/B tier there.)

Dilophosaur (has a small niche inbeing a slowdown turret but plant x does that better)

Direbear (has decent stats but is majorly outclassed by basically any other damage tame out there)

Sabretooth (okay health and damage but is basically a weaker direwolf)

Hyenaedon (terrible stats, will just get killed)
