Best Talent Trees for Belisarius

Open-field Build (Speed / Attack)

Belisarius is one of the fastest commanders of Rise of Kingdoms, this build is excellent to hunt down many enemies trying to escape from us.

You can also use it as F2P players hunting enemy resource points to weaken their troops and resources. This is a mode fun game that many F2P players flock to increase their stats.

This build is focused on march speed that Belisarius can reach in any situation.

The below alternative attack build is considered effective only for Open-field and not against all types of commanders.

We must be smart and effective in attacks, here we lose some talents of march speed to increase others of Attack and Defense, Belisarius will be much more offensive-defensive, but you will lose your main speed skills.
