Best civilization for general field fights/f2p



Commander: Joan of Arc
Special unit troop: Throwing Axeman(Infantry)

  • Troop health 3%
  • Wood gathering speed 10%
  • Hospital healing speed 20%

Field fighting is super fun until you realize you have a hospital full of wonder troops. Healing troops, especially tier-5 troops cost lots of resources and speed-ups. That’s where France civilization comes in. It gives you 20% troops heal speed meaning you will save 20% of your speed-ups when healing troops. It’s a very important boost during KvK where you will be doing constant field fights. You also get Joan of Arc as starting commander, who is probably the best gatherer commander in the game. On top of that, she is also an excellent support commander for field fights in the early stages of the game.

Best civilization for Archer



Commander: Imhotep
Special unit troop: Maryannu(Archer)

  • Archer troop attack 5%
  • Rally Damage 5%
  • Building and research speed 1.5%

Egypt is a relatively new civilization with a new epic commander Imhotep, however, it seems extremely good for archer rallying. previously the best one was the ottoman which provided 5% archer health along with 5% skill damage. Egypt seems the better choice because instead of only a skill damage boost it provides a 5% Rally attack boost and if we are not mistaken, it includes both skill and normal attack.

Ottoman Empire(Rally/Garrison/Field-fights)

Commander: Osman I
Special unit troop: Janissary(Archer)

  • Archer Health 5%
  • Troop march speed 5%
  • Active skill damage 5%

While Egypt might be the best one Ottoman Empire is still a solid choice for archer rally leaders. It provides 5% march speed which is good for the rally as well as 5% archer health which is essential for the archer troop type. On top of that, there is a sweet bonus of 5% skill damage, which is no joke when used with high active skill damage archer commanders. Lastly, unlike Egypt, Ottoman Empire is also good for archer field fight players.

Best civilization for Cavalary



Commander: Baibars
Special unit troop: Mamluk(Cavalry)

  • Cavalary troop attack 5%
  • Damage to barbarians 10%
  • Rally damage 5%

Cavalary is the most popular choice for the rally among the rally leaders and Arabia is the best choice for it. Arabia civilizations give a 5% Cavs attack boost and a 5% rally damage bonus. Now it may not seem like much but this is the best boost available in that game for the Cavs rally at the moment.



Commander: Hermann
Special unit troop: Teutonic Knight(Cavalry)

  • Cavalry attack 5%
  • Troop training speed 5%
  • Action point recovery speed 10%

If you are not a rally-focused player then Germany will be a great choice for you. It provides the same 5% Cavs attack but instead of rally damage, you get too training speed boost which can save you lots of speed-ups in the long run. And 10% action point recovery speed is also a nice little bonus.

Best civilization for Infantry

Vikings (Field-fights)


Commander: Bjorn Ironside
Special unit troop: Berserker(Infantry)

  • Infantry troop attack 5%
  • Counter damage 3%
  • Troop load 10%

Vikings civilization can give a nice boost to your Infantry march them with 5% attack and 3% counter damage. The counter damage is good for field fights because most of the time your March will end up getting swarmed by the enemies.



Commander: Scipio Africanus(Epic)
Special unit troop: Legionary(Infantry)

  • Infantry defense 5%
  • Troop march speed 5%
  • Resource gathering speed 10%

Garrisoning is all about defending the objective for as long as you can and what does defending require? Defense, right? That’s exactly what Rome civilization provides you, 5% infantry defense. Rome was also a popular choice for infantry rallies, but now we have a new civilization that is much better for the rally.

Greece(Rally/field fights)

Greece Civilization Rise of Kingdoms

Commander: Pericles(Epic)
Special unit troop: Argyraspide(Infantry)

  • Infantry health 5%
  • Rallied Army damage 5%
  • Stone gathering speed 10%

Greece civilization is a must-have for infantry rally leaders. it gives you 5% infantry health and 5% rally damage. This synergy works really nicely because All rally damage is always a good thing for rally leaders and health is the best stat in the game. Additionally, you can also use it for an open-filed fight, that 5% health will surely help, however, Rome and Viking will be a better option because of the extra buffs.

Should you change civilization in the rise of kingdoms?

if you are f2p or mid-spender then you really shouldn’t change your civilization very often. Changing civilization in rok isn’t cheap at all it cost 10,000 gems or 2m alliance credit. However, if you are an advanced player or rally leader then you might need to change your civilization often. for example, if you are in rallying in KvK with archers you will be using Ottoman or Egypt. But when rally meta changes to cavalry you gonna need to switch to Arabia. And when you leave the KvK phase and come to the home kingdom, it’s better to use Germany or Britain for training troops.

How to change civilization in the rise of kingdoms?

There are two ways to change civilization in ROK. The first one is using 10,000 gems to buy a civilization change token. This method isn’t just stupid but it’s ridiculous. So follow this second method which only requires alliance credit.

  1. First head to the alliance shop and find the civilization change token in the shop
  2. if you don’t see a civilization change token then tell your R4 to add one for you.
  3. you will need 2 million alliance credits to purchase civilization change.
  4. once you are done buying the civilization change token, click on your profile picture.
  5. On the top right side, you will find your current civilization name mentioned, there will be a change icon right in front of that name.
  6. Click on that button and you will be able to change your civilization from there
