Welcome to our Crk Team Building Guide – How to Build a Team in CRK, This is probably the kind of post we get most of all, and I figured I’d write up a guide on this so that when we delete posts about it, we can tell them to look at this so they’re not too lost.
When you pick up a new game, it can be really hard to tell not just what you’re supposed to be doing, but what ‘the right way’ of going about it is. This might not be like the perfect guide that builds you the amazing dream team you take to the endgame or something, but it should at least get you far enough to the point that you know what you’re doing.

I can’t tell you every character and what they do and if they’re good or not, because that would need to be a recurring thing I’d need to come back here and edit every time there’s a new character or a rebalance. But I can at least give you some general knowledge guidance so that you can get far enough into the game to figure the rest out yourself. Also read here: Cookie Run Tier List 2022 ( Best Characters )
Crk Team Building Guide – How to Build a Team in CRK
Most of the time, I’m playing with one tank, one healer, and three “everything else”. You can use two tanks or two healers if you need it, but you usually won’t.
The frontline is where defense-type and charge-type characters go. Defense-type characters are obviously defense-oriented tanks, while charge-type characters are a bit more of an attack/defense mix. Examples of defense characters include Strawberry, Milk, and Hollyberry, while charge characters include Gingerbrave, Princess, and Dark Choco.
In the beginning, you probably won’t have amazing characters right away, and that’s fine. You could probably put anyone’s defense/charge here and it’ll still mostly work out, so long as you replace them with someone better later of course. But I’d recommend against Knight, his taunt might seem useful but he doesn’t have anything with which to help him survive the taunt after he uses it :c

I should note here that while healers have a dedicated healing-type class, support-type characters can also be healers. The main difference is that support-type characters still deal damage with their normal attack, while healing-type characters will heal a party member instead.
In the beginning, you’ll get access to Prince Custard Cookie III and Clover Cookie pretty quickly. Either is fine really, but swap them out for an epic once you can. They’re mostly all viable, but I’d pass on Sparkling until you know what you’re doing. Since he only heals two characters at a time, late game fights might result in your party having very lopsided health xnx
There are very few situations where you wouldn’t want to have someone to tank and someone to heal that off. For the most part, these positions are just meant to serve a purpose, and you’ve checked that off by now. But the ‘everything else’ segment of the team is where things are most interesting because now you can really get creative with what kind of team you want to make.
It’s pretty easy really, just, look at the rest of your epic characters, read their skills, and see what you want on your team. There are some rares that are actually pretty alright, but it’s just a few here and there, while the epic rarity tier is usually more consistent. I’d generally just recommend characters that are good at killing things. Playing it fast-and-loose is pretty consistent for World Exploration, and you can use the time in between fights to use healing skills.
You can also add on another charge/defense/healing character if you want to run a more defensive team, but just don’t make your team *too* defensive. A summoning character like Licorice Cookie could also help take some pressure off the front, as most summons will run to the front and can take hits too.
Sadly, the classifications for the “everything else” category are far less strict, and telling you a character is magic-type doesn’t really say much about what their gameplay is like. You’ll just have to read up on what every character’s skill does – but don’t feel too bad, because all every character is a class, position, normal attack, and skill – you don’t have a lot to learn for each character. I can’t say a sweeping statement like “well-ranged characters are good at single-target damage” or something since it just varies from character to character. I guess I can say bomber-types have normal attacks that deal splash damage? that’s about it.
Oh, and don’t worry too much if you try to fit three back-position or three mid-position type characters. Back and mid are basically the same thing anyway
As stated before, this guide isn’t meant to be a strict “here’s x team, it has y characters” sort of deal – if you’re reading this at all, you’re probably not far enough in the game to build the teams with the most synergy, and you just want to know who to use until you know what you’re doing. That’s what this guide is for.
Again, this guide is also about cleaning up the subreddit. Now that we have this post, I can push people here when I sweep out posts about team building. In the future, we’ll have a megathread set up where you can also ask for help. This means that asking for help won’t clog up the subreddit, but you can still ask for it if you still need to, just, somewhere else. It also will make for some more timely help – the post won’t become “outdated” if the balance changes. Espresso used to be the best character in the game, but he’s kind of in the ‘meh’ space now :c
