  • Great during early stage of the game
  • Good garrison option for early game
  • Free to obtain


  • Legendary commanders are far better
  • will become completely useless after entering mid game.

What is commander Pericles good at?

If you are in Season of Conquest, then Pericles will be useless for you because different between epic and legendary commanders in SOC is enormous. However if you are beginner and in early stage of the game then he will be definitely of some good use, especially for garrisoning during events like shadow legion.

Pericles commander pairings

Pericles can be paired with any infantry commanders. However if we speak more realistically, you most likely won’t be pairing him with legendary commanders because they can be paired with far commander than Pericles. So you most likely pair him with another epic infantry commanders who are also good at early game.

Sun Tzu (Primary)

Rise of Kingdoms Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu isn’t just a great infantry commander but he is the best Epic commander in the game. At early game he is almost as good as legendary commanders. So if you don’t have good legendary commanders unlocked than Sun Tzu would be a good choice for Pericles

Joan of Arc (secondary )

Rise of Kingdoms Joan of Arc

As a f2p player, you can also help out your ally by using support commanders like Joan of Arc. She provides valuable buffs to you as well your allies. Pericles can be used primarily with infantry while Joan of Arc can stay hidden as powerful support hero as a secondary.

Eulji Mundeok (primary)

rise of kingdoms eulji mundeok

Eulji Mundeok is another epic commander who might be good during early stages of the game. You should use him as primary and Pericles as secondary because attack tree of Eulji is better choice than support and active skill from Eulji can reduce enemy defence by 30%.

Bjorn Ironside (secondary)

Rise of Kingdoms Bjorn Ironside

Bjorn Ironside is skill damage based epic Infantry commander. You can use Pericles as primary commander for tanking while Bjorn as secondary commander for nuking.

Charles Martel (Secondary)

Rise of Kingdoms Charles Martel

Charles Martel is legendary infantry commander. So it will be difficult get your hands on his sculptures. However if you are lucky enough you might get his sculptures from Tavern gold chest. If you manage to get his first and second skill to max, then he will be quite powerful on the field during early game. You can use Pericles as primary to bait people in attacking him, while Charles Martel destroys them with defensive stats and counter damage.

Richard I (Secondary)

Rise of Kingdoms Richard

Just like Charles Martel, Richard I is also extremely power at the beginning of the game. You can use him with Pericles in same manner of Charles Martel. However getting richard’s sculpture would be even more difficult, since he is available trough Wheel of Fortune and will require to spend gems on him.
