Espresso cookie is known for its skills that inflict AoE DMG and CC effects. With the Grinding skill, Espresso Cookie generates a whirlwind that pulls the enemies into the center and also inflicts damage. Its position is middle and its role is “magic DMG”. In our opinion, this cookie is one of the top-tier cookies in the Cookie Run Kingdom. 

Licorice Cookie – S TierCookie Run Kingdom Tier List

If you are looking for a mid-line damage dealer just like the Espresso Cookie, you should definitely give this cookie a spot in your team. Licorice Cookie is known for its magic skills that summon minions to cause damage and use the potent spell to increase the party’s defense. In our opinion, Licorice is among the top-tier epic-grade middle-line characters in the Cookie Run Kingdom game.

Kumiho Cookie – A Tier

Kumiho Cookie

  • Tier Ratings: A Tier 
  • Kumiho Cookie is a front-line unit that excels in inflicting damage to the enemies. It has two forms; marshmallow fox form and cookie form. Cookie form causes area damage and charm nearby enemies(enemies affected with charm effect would not be able to unleash any offensive action). Kumiho’s charm effect is not permanent; it lasts for a few moments only. The fox form fires upon foes.

Sparkling Cookie – A TierCookie Run Kingdom Tier List

Sparkling Cookie is another good healing character (Epic Grade) in the game. We prefer Herb – but Sparkling Cookie is also good. Its skill not only heals the allies but also raise the Critical Strike Chances. 

Madeleine Cookie – A TierCookie Run Kingdom Tier List

Madeleine Cookie is an epic grade front line defense role cookie character in the Cookie Run Kingdom game that’s known for its high HP and DEF stats. With the skill “Commander”, this cookie restores HP, inflicts ranged attacks instead of regular ones – also, while the skill effect is in play, Madeleine would be immune to debuffs. There are many epic grade front-line characters; we prefer Milk because of its DMG reduction and taunt skill. Also, Dark Choco because of its ability to lower the defense of enemies. Madeleine is also a good choice if you are looking for a front-line unit.

  1. My current team is Madeleine and Milk in front
    Espresso and licorice in middle
    And Rye is rear

    I used to use herb instead of licorice long time ago but herb always kept dying so I got licorice by buying soul stones and it works much better
    Espresso I got on the first day and till now I never removed it

  2. I thought of a very annoying team in PvP
    Madeline and Dark Choco in front
    Espresso and licorice in mid
    Herb in back

    Dark Choco and Espresso are already annoying AF

    Beta Version: Milk and Dark Choco in front
    Madeline and Espresso in mid
    Custard in back cuz extra shield is nice
    The frontliner in mid was intentional.

    • Knight cookie got me to chapter 5 only being level 26. My team till chapter 5 was Knight and Gingerbrave in the front, Chilli Pepper in the mid and Rye and Custard in the rear. It was only in chapter 6 that I got Esspresso. Now I am in chapter 7- 25 and after five more games I will reach chapter 8 (last chapter).
