His primary skill, “Glory of Shizong,” deals area-of-effect (AOE) damage to multiple target troops and reduces their march speed. This crowd control effect can slow down enemy marches during battles, making it harder for them to maneuver effectively.

Liu Che’s skills enhance normal attack damage, which results in consistent and reliable damage output. This makes him a reliable source of damage in battles.

He offers flexibility in commander pairings. He can be used effectively as both a primary and secondary commander, depending on your strategy and available commanders.

His “Expansionist” skill reduces the damage dealt by the target troop after smite damage, enhancing his survivability and the survivability of allied troops.

“Mighty Pen, Mighty Sword” skill boosts infantry units’ defense, and march speed, and reduces skill damage taken, making him a durable and versatile infantry commander.

Overall, Liu Che is great at leading infantry armies in open-field battles, providing infantry buffs, and disrupting enemy formations through crowd control. He’s a reliable choice for commanders who prefer infantry-focused strategies and want to excel in open-field combat situations.

Liu Che Talent Tree builds

Below you will find the best talent tree builds for Liu Che for different scenarios.

Open field

This is the typical talent build for an infantry commander with an attack tree. This talent build worked great on Alexander the Great and will continue to be good on Liu Che too.

The open field when paired with Normal damage commanders

If you pair Liu Che with a commander who relies on normal damage, then you can pick up Martial Mystery can boost normal damage while reducing skill damage. Normally this would be a bad skill-heavy commander but since Liu Che also does a lot of normal attack damage, this particular talent will be great for him.

Liu Che commander pairings

Liu Che has a fine balance between skill damage and normal attack damage, which allows him to be paired with any infantry commander. However, following commanders will be better options for him.

Sargon the Great (primary) – Best pairing

rise of kingdoms sargon

Sargon is the best pair option for Liu Che. He is already a very powerful commander himself. He can do an extra normal attack which is great for Liu Che since his smite damage is boosted by the normal attack.

Another great synergy is that Sargon’s awed debuff can be applied using AOE and it makes the target take more skill damage. Liu Che not only does lots of skill damage but also has 5 target AOE damage.

You should use Sargon the Great as primary because the skill talent tree is better than the attack talent tree of Liu Che. Aside from that, you will deal more damage from Liu Che if debuff from Sargon’s awed effect is already applied.

Scipio Prime (primary)

rise of kingdoms Legendary Scipio africanus prime

Just like Sargon, Scipio Prime is a solo powerhouse himself. He has everything that an open field commander needs, high-skill damage, march speed, buffs, debuffs, and shield.

You can pair him with any infantry commander, and he will immediately turn another commander into a powerful open-field fighter. Liu Che is already quite strong on the field, together they will be a nightmare for the cavalry.

Scipio should be used primarily because a 30% health reduction debuff on his primary skill will help to boost Liu Che’s active skill damage.

Pyrrhus (Primary)

Rise of Kingdoms Pyrrhus

As we explained in Pyrrhus commander guide, he is a normal attack-heavy commander. His normal attack damage buffs can boost Liu Che’s smite damage.

Furthermore, Liu Che’s expertise skill can do extra normal attacks. That secondary normal attack will get even more benefit from normal attack damage buffs from Pyrrhus.

Harald Sigurdsson (Primary)

harald rise of kingdom

As already mentioned before, Liu Che benefits a lot from normal attack damage. Harald Sigurdsson is an infantry commander who is great at doing normal attack damage.

Another great thing about Herald is that he is very tanky as well as has great crowd control with counterattack damage. He can tank as primary while Liu Che can snip down up to 5 enemies from behind.

Alexander the Great (secondary)

Rise of Kingdoms Alexander the great

Alexander the Great is truly great in the open field. However, He has everything you need for an open field commander. He has buffs, debuffs, march speed as well as the shield factor.

While this pair won’t be as good as the Scipio Prime pairing, Alexander and Liu Che will definitely give you some great results in field fights.

Sun Tzu (secondary)

Rise of Kingdoms Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu isn’t just a great infantry commander but he is the best Epic commander in the game. While Sun Tzu might not be the best pair for Liu Che, he can be an epic alternative until you max out other legendary commanders to pair with Legendary Scipio.
