By detailing her talents + skills we can see that Diaochan is an excellent commander to defeat barbarian and neutral units.

She has a great healing factor that improves, thanks to her “Peacekeeping” and “Support” talents, the increase in damage, and experience gain for commanders.

We don’t recommend using Diaochan for PVP. Her skills and talents are not the most ideal for this type of combat.

Best Commanders Pairings for Diaochan

mulan Rise of Kingdoms Both commanders for “Peacekeeping” are great, the improvements that Mulan offers thanks to their skills will be very good if we seek to remain defeating barbarian and neutral units for a long time, the combination of XP gained from both is ideal to strengthen any of these in their levels , both mix like a deadly couple for PVE.

Yi Seong-Gye An archer commander of the most complete of Rise of Kingdoms, if we seek to make “Chain-Farming Barbarians” YSG is the best option thanks to its great AOE damage capable of annihilating any type of enemy, in this case barbarian or neutral units, the combination Both of them will not have great resistance, but they will gain a lot of damage per skill in addition to having a strong healing.
