Best Commanders in Rise of Kingdoms (with Talents)

If you’re lost what commander you should level up and take to the route to max out in Rise of Kingdoms I hope this guide here will help you, including my recommendations in what order you should stuff their level trees and what commanders they work best with as secondary commander.

The Best Commanders & What Talents To Level

Not seeing any advanced and only a few elite commanders here? The reason is we’re talking about the best commanders in Rise of Kingdoms and, obviously, the epic and legendary ones are the strongest. However, I always tried to include one of the easier rarities as well as it can take a long time to unlock a legendary commander.

Best Tanking & Defensive Commander

Let’s kick this list off with the best tanking commanders in Rise of Civilization.

Charles Martel

Without any doubt he is the best tanking and defensive commanders in Rise of Kingdoms when fully maxed out – if you pair him with Richard I as a secondary commander you have the best tanking and defensive setup. The only downside that it is very hard to max him out because he’s a Legendary Commander.

Best Secondary Commander to use: Richard I or Joan of Arc

Talent Tree Priority: Infantry > Defense > Garrison

Richard I

The second best tank and defensive commander in Rise of Kingdoms. I don’t think there’s much more to say about him that I haven#t said about Charles Martel earlier.

When it comes to pairing, the best secondary commander would be Charles Martel, however, if you have Charles you will very likely use him as primary commander 😉

Best Secondary Commander to use: Charles Martel or Joan of Arc

Talent Tree Priority: Infantry > Defense > Garrison

Scipio Africanus

He’s a little weaker (but still extremely strong) than the other two commanders but with the epic rarity a lot easier to level up than the legendary ones above in Rise of Kingdoms. If you manage to unlock him early in Rise of Kingdoms (it was the first commander I unlocked), don’t hesitate leveling up he will give you a great service until the end-game 🙂

Best Secondary Commander to use: Joan of Arc or any other conqueror

Talent Tree Priority: Leadership > Attack > Conquering

Best Damage Dealing Commander

Now let’s have a look at the damage dealing beasts of commanders in Rise of Kingdoms.

Cao Cao

Nuking like a cannon and amazing cavalry and a great commander to have in Rise of Kingdoms. Cao Cao can be unlocked from the Warlord’s Ambition chest in the Daily Special offers and you can max out his first skill by using legendary commander sculptures. The only bad thing I can say about him is that it will be a hard (but worthy) road to max him that will give you one of the best commanders in the whole game.

Best Secondary Commander to use: Minamoto or Pelagius

Talent Tree Priority: Cavalry > Mobility > Peacekeeping

Yi Seong-Gye

An amazing nuker and the best area of effect damage in Rise of Kingdoms give him his secure place on this list here and will help you take down enemy troops like wood sticks.

Best Secondary Commander to use: Sun Tzu or El Cid

Talent Tree Priority: Skill > Archer > Garrison

Hermann

You can consider him the epic version of the legendary Cao Cao but don’t underestimate him, he’s a great Archer Leader and nuker himself as well and will take down your enemies in blinks of seconds. If you’re lucky enough to get him early don’t hesitate leveling him up.

Best Secondary Commander to use: JYi Seong-Gye or El Cid

Talent Tree Priority: Skill > Archer > Garrison

Sun Tzu

Like Hermann is the epic version of Yi Seong-Gye, Sun Tzu is the epic version of Yi Seong-Gye. For the best effectivity you should combine him with a tank like Richerd I or Charles Martel

Best Secondary Commander to use: Charles Martel or Richard I

Talent Tree Priority: Skill > Infantry > Garrison

Best Secondary Commander

Now let’s have a look at the commanders that work well as a secondary commander. They are working great but you can put your focus on your primary commander and let them at a little lower level and still get great support from them.

Hannibal Barca

We don’t need to fight that much here, Hannibal Barca is for sure the best secondary commander you can use but he’s very expensive to level up so if you’re not a player that is massively into Rise of Kingdoms you might rather want to get one of the below commanders.

Best Primary Commander to use: Julius Caesar or Frederik I

Talent Tree Priority: Leadership > Conquering > Attack

Joan of Arc

Since her damage reduction got changed into an attack buff, she is too vulnerable to be the primary commander in my opinion but the insane damage output and buff give here a secure place at one of the best secondary commanders in Rise of Kingdoms.

Best Primary Commander to use: really any commander will work great 🙂

Talent Tree Priority: Gathering > Support > Integration

Tomoe Gozen

She’s the rare version of Joan of Arc and pretty much works the same with a little weaker stats. Still a great addition if you focus on maxing out an epic or legendary commander to be your primary commander you can take her with you.

Best Primary Commander to use: really any commander will work great 🙂

Talent Tree Priority: Archer > Attack > Versatility

Best Gatherer Commander

Sooner or later you see that you will need to start a gathering commander squad in Rise of Kingdoms and here are the best ones to take

Cleopatra VI

For sure the best commander when it comes to gathering in Rise of Kingdoms, but she is very hard to level and you should be aware of that. In the long run she will pay it off but still for more casual players I recommend the other gathering commanders.

Best Secondary Commander to use: any gatherer or Joan of Arc

Talent Tree Priority: Gathering > Support > Integration

Constance

She’s an excellent gathering commander as well, like Cleopatra but easier to level up.

Best Secondary Commander to use: any gatherer

Talent Tree Priority: Gathering > Skill > Integration

Gaius Marius

Also a great gatherer but also has some leader talents that will help you out in certain situations

Best Secondary Commander to use: any gatherer or tank

Talent Tree Priority: Gathering > Skill > Leadership
