2. Joan of Ark


Most players forget about her and deemed her to only be a gatherer, indeed she is a great gatherer but she also have plenty of benefits being in the field especially in the KvK.

When there is an array of allied combatants, she will be able to provide massive buffs to her allies and herself due to AOE, granting Infantry 30% health, Cavalry 30% defense and Archer 30% attack plus!! 50 rage per second in a total of 4 seconds.

This is the reason why she belongs to the top 5 Kvk Commanders in Rise of Kingdoms.

Support matters and can make a huge difference in the war.

3. Aethelflaed


It would be moronic if we do not include a legendary commander that is free to obtain from the expedition shop.

Now, she is not on this list because she is simply a free legendary commander, she is on this list because of her abilities.

Her skill Arrow of Iron is great due to its ability to reduce her foe’s attack, defense and health by 30% in addition to that she does an 800 direct damage factor.

Nonetheless she is a valuable commander in the open field as there are many commanders that will also deal some sort of marching speed reduction, as she will gain 20% extra damage to any enemies that had been slowed.

It would not be a bad idea to pair her with a commander with an ability to slow an opponent or be surrounded by allies that has the ability to slow a target.

4. Osman I

One of the deadliest epic commanders in the game with a high damage factor and leadership attributes Osman 1 can bring massive troops in the battlefield to serve him.

What is unique about his skills is that he will gain an extra direct damage factor of 400 after an active skill is used.

His active skill damage factor is 1100 this is a total of 1500 damage factor for an epic commander.  Do not underestimate his abilities when pair with the right commander he is a deadly weapon on the battlefield as long as his troop capacities are maximized.

5. Hermann


A commander that has the ability to silence his opponents and decrease the rage by 100.

He is an ultimate disabler in addition to his ability to disable an enemy he also will deal a massive damage factor of 1150. When Equipped with archer march he will also be able to increase the marching speed of archers by 10%

His 4th skills will also increase normal attack damage by 10% and has a 10% chance to regenerate 100 rages.

6. Pelagius


Still by far is the best epic cavalry commander due to the ability to restore rage and heal.

His active skill direct damage factor is lower than his other epic counterparts but an additional damage factor helps him to deal massive damage and his ability to gain rage will allow him to cast his skill much sooner than the others.
