Rok Pyrrhus Talent Tree Build, Pairings, and Equipments Guide

Pyrrhus is a legendary infantry commander in the rise of kingdoms(rok). He was released along with the epic commander Pericles and the New Greece Civilization. In this guide You will find Pyrrhus Talent tree builds, the Best commanders pairings, the best equipment to use, the Formation Guide, and pretty much everything you need to know.

Is Pyrrhus Worth Investing?

You can unlock Pyrrhus for free during the special sign-in event during the Greece Civilization launch. And after that, you can get his sculptures from the tavern gold chest.

Should you invest legendary commander sculptures in him? If you are a whale at an early game then sure, he can be quite powerful infantry legendary commander who can be used for open field as well as rally. However, in mid-game and end-game, there are far better legendary commanders available.

F2P players and mid-spenders can probably avoid maxing Pyrrhus and just upgrade him with gold keys. You can better use his skills as bastion skills or Auxiliaries skills.

If you are wondering how he compares to other legendary infantry commanders, you can check out ROK commander Tier list.

Skill upgrade order


There are two ways you can upgrade him. First up, if you want to use him for a field fight during the early game then you should upgrade his active skill first and then move straight to 4th skill because it’s far more powerful than 2nd and 3rd skills.

Expertise skill isn’t really that great because of the 8s cool-down, however, if you upgrade him with just gold keys then it will surely be a nice bonus for your open-field fights.

The second way you can use him is for bastion and auxiliaries skills. In that case, wait till KvK starts and then try to get 4th skill maxed out first. 20% skill damage taken reduction is no joke.


  • Powerful infantry commander for early game
  • Good direct damage factor
  • Small shield factor
  • Skill damage is taken reduction
  • Could be an infantry rally option for early KvKs
  • You can get his sculptures for free from tavern


  • Completely useless in the end-game
  • Don’t have AOE, buffs, or debuffs
  • Relic isn’t powerful enough to make him relevant in SoC

What is Commander Pyrrhus good at?

If you are in the end game, Pyrrhus will be useless because there are far better legendary commanders that will become available. However, if you are a beginner and in the early stage of the game then he will be really good.

Pyrrhus can do a good amount of direct damage, it may not look like a big number, however, when you compare him to other KvK 1 commanders it’s a strong direct damage factor.

His 4th skill reduces skill damage taken by 20%, which can keep powerful early-game skill damage commanders like YSG, Minamoto, and Mehmed at bay. A small shield further increases his defensive capabilities.

Overall, great for KvK1, good for KvK 2 and 3, and useless after that.

Pyrrhus Talent Tree builds

Pyrrhus will be either used for open field, or rally during early stages of the game and canyons. Below you will find his talent tree for all scenarios.

Note: Pyrrhus won’t be primary in the rally, so we are skipping the rally talent tree.


rok Pyrrhus Talent tree

This is an infantry-focused build with a focus on base stats. Elite soldiers will provide you with the base attack, defense, and health boost and a fleet of foot will give you march, something that infantry desperately needs.

This talent build is strictly designed to be used in canyons. Pyrrhus isn’t a top-tier canyons commander. However during the early game when you don’t have many commander options, this talent will help you a lot.

Pyrrhus commander pairings

Pyrrhus can be paired with any infantry commander. However, his synergy works better with the following commanders.

Charles Martel (primary) – Best pairing for Kvk 1

Rise of Kingdoms Charles Martel

Charles Martel is the best pairing option for Pyrrhus in KvK1. The synergy between them is just so good. Both commanders heavily focus on normal attack damage and have a shielding factor. On top of that, Pyrrhus’s 4th skill gives 10% more damage when the shield is active.

The reason why you should use Charles Martel primary is that Charles Martel’s active skill gives a 30% damage boost which will boost Pyrrhus’s active skill.

Richard I (Secondary)

Rise of Kingdoms Richard

Richard I was also an extremely powerful infantry commander during KvK 1 and KvK 2. If you are a mid-spender and using Wheel of Fortune, then there is a good chance that you will have better skills on your Richard than your Charles Martel.

While synergy might not be as good as Charles Martel, it still is quite a Tanky combination to take down on the field.

Aethelflaed (both)

Rise of Kingdoms Aethelflaed

Aethelflaed is a powerful de-buff commander who is available for free. She reduces attack, defense, health, and march speed while doing some AOE damage too. You will be helping your allies a lot by using her in the field.

You can use her primary because the debuff on her primary skill will help Pyrrhus’s skill damage. However, people target Aethelflaed a lot. So, alternatively, you can also hide her behind Pyrrhus.

Alexander the Great the (Primary) – best pairing for Kvk 2

Rise of Kingdoms Alexander the great

Alexander the Great is the best commander for KvK 2. He does pretty much everything, does lots of damage, has a shield and tankiness, provides march speed, buffs allies, and de-buffs enemies. There is no other commander in KvK 2 who does so many things at the same time.

You should use Alexander as primary because his active skill makes the target take 30% more damage and has a shield, both will boost Pyrrhus’s damage output.

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. In early game, he is almost as good as legendary commanders. So if you don’t have good legendary commanders unlocked then Sun Tzu would be a good choice for Pyrrhus.

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 as your allies. Pyrrhus can be used primarily with infantry while Joan of Arc can stay hidden as a powerful support hero as a secondary.

Scipio Africanus Prime (Primary) – Best pairing for SoC

rise of kingdoms Legendary Scipio africanus prime

While Pyrrhus isn’t that great in SoC if you absolutely must use him because lack of legendary sculptures, then Scipio Prime is the best choice for you.

Scipio Prime is the beast of an infantry commander in SoC in the same way Alexander the Great is in KvK 2. He does lots of stuff at the same time, lots of skill damage, AOE damage, de-buff enemies, provides a shield, provides march speed, and has faster rage generation. On top of that, both commanders benefit from being outside of the alliance territory.

You should use Scipio Prime as Primary because of the 30% health reduction on his active skill.

Pyrrhus Best Formation

Pyrrhus relies on normal attack damage. So the best formation for him would be Arch Formation, which can give him an extra 5% normal damage.

Additionally, you can also use wedge Formation if you are using him with skill heavy commander.
