We will try to keep it updated with every release of new commanders. This guide only focuses on a single commander and his/her usability in a different situation.

Xiang Yu(XY) Best Talent Tree, Commander Pairings And Equipment Guide

Overall best commanders in rise of kingdoms for F2P

Zenobia is a great garrison captain, however, she wouldn’t that useful in other situations like an Open field, Canyons, Ceroli bosses, fort rally, etc. So if you are a F2P or low spender then you probably won’t get much value out of her.

As a F2P player, you want to get the most out of your single legendary commander because you might not be able to max out multiple legendary commanders. There are some commanders who can give you good results in multiple situations. Below there is a list of commanders that you should consider to max out before any other commanders.

Yi Seong-Gye(YSG)

Yi Seong-gye commander

YSG should be the first legendary commander to max out for any rok player. He is good from day one to all the way to SoC(season of conquest). There are multiple pairing options for him and he can be used in almost every single situation.

Charles Martel

charles martel rise of kingdoms

Martel is a really strong infantry commander. He is a great garrison and open-field fighter during KvK2/3. In the SoC, Charles loses some value because of the availability of better commanders but he still gives good results. Yes, it will be a long time before you can max him using gold keys, but if you are patients enough to wait then you can probably get him for free.

Aethelflaed

aethelflaed commander

You can get her for free from the sunset canyons shop. Aethelflaed pairs really nicely with YSG during the early game and with mighty commanders like Trajan during SoC. She is a strong debuffer and you will be helping out your allies a lot by using her.

Saladin

saladin rise of kingdoms commander

Cavalry is probably the best troop type for F2P and low spenders. Saladin is an exceptional commander. He is just as good in SoC as he is in KvK 2/3. Earlier he can be paired with YSG and Aethelflaed and later with Xiang Yu and William. Saladin can do a lot of skill damage while providing some help for ally with his debuff.

Xiang Yu

rok xiang yu

For the season of conquest, this is the number one commander. Xiang Yu is really good for the “Hit and Run” playstyle something that F2P uses a lot to save RSS and speed-ups. Aside from that, he is great in canyons, Ceroli boss fights, and champions of Olympia. XY can be paired with almost every Cavalry commander and provides excellent value for your golden sculpture investment.

  1. Hey, if you’re looking for a part-time Technical Writer/Copywriter let me know. I think this website has great potential and I have experience creating content for tech websites I previously ran with a partner. I couldn’t keep up with the workload which is why I don’t run those sites now but I would enjoy getting back into the game and putting some more recent experience in my portfolio.
