New Rise of Kingdoms guide, commanders guide & pairing, Tier list and commander

Rise of Kingdoms is an RTS (real-time strategy) mobile game. Players around the world play together in one of the many available kingdoms.

Whether you’re thinking of playing the game, just downloaded it, or still learning the ropes, you probably want to go the right path to achieve the ultimate city you’re hoping to have.

Learn how to find and combine the best commanders, calculate progress, talent builds and trees, redeem codes, and some tips and tricks to have excellent gaming experience.

Rise of Kingdoms Commander Guide

To start, you will need a commander if you want to go on a battle. Three specialties will determine which talents trees every commander’s talent trees can be leveled. Every commander has four skills that can be unlocked according to the star level of the commander’s. Legendary and Epic commanders have a 5th mastery skill that improves one of their first four skills; getting all four skills to level 5 is unlocked. Star levels can be unlocked through sacrificing sculptures specific for that commander or a general sculpture.

Rise of Kingdoms City Hall Requirements

The central building in the city is the City Hall. No building in the city can be a higher level than the City Hall itself. That’s why it determines all of the structures’ maximum level.

In this way, it sets the upper limit for research that can be performed, determines how many troops can fit in hospitals, and many more.

Upgrading the city hall also increases the number of commanders/traders, which may be fielded simultaneously. It is also the primary factor in how many troops a commander may have in their army.

Rise of Kingdoms Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks you can use to make the most out of playing Rise of Kingdoms. 

Pick The Best Nation

Choosing a suitable nation to your playstyle is a crucial first step in playing the game.

Rome

Rome is suitable for active players who like to have an aggressive, attacking play style. For you to reach target locations faster than other nations, use the marching speed bonus.

Germany

Germany also rewards active players, especially to those who just started. Because of its bonus to action points, you will be able to kill many barbarians and level up your commanders much faster than other nations.

Britain

Britain can be a good option in an alliance with many troops because of its 20% bonus to ally garrison capacity. Sadly, the wood gathering bonus is a bit underwhelming, as you will then hold a dedicated resource gathering commander.

France

France is an excellent option for high-level play. Other troop health and a 10% healing speed bonus enable a more liberal approach to fighting and attacking in general.

Spain

Spain is suitable for resource farming thanks to its 10% troops load bonus; however, it offers very little about fighting. It still might be the right choice if you prefer to avoid combat.

China

China is also a top tier nation, having a focus on troops defenses and faster building and resource production speed. It might be the best overall option for active players.

Japan

Japan is the right choice for you if you enjoy commanding massive armies. It has a 5% bonus to troops training capacity and a 2% attack bonus, and the downside is a rather ineffective 30% scout march speed bonus.

Korea

Lastly, Korea has a bit of a sub-optimal combination of bonuses – 2% research speed bonus, 5% archer defense, and 10% hospital capacity don’t lend themselves in favor of any particular play style. However, Korean architecture is, without a doubt, the most beautiful nation in the game.

Best Civilization For Starting

When you just started, you shouldn’t mind the buffs those civilizations provide. Instead, look for the featured commanders of those civilizations because they are the Epic Commanders that you will get after choosing a civilization for free.

It would be better if you looked for the commanders whose sculptures usually get offered through the events and quests in the game.

Thus, it is suggested that F2P players should start with either Boudica or Scipio. Rok Guide says they are the best starting Epic Commanders for F2P players because:

  1. Boudica is suitable for farming Barbarians/Forts and nuking.
  2. Scipio is excellent for any mixed army composition and is quite tanky on an open battlefield.

After having the starting commander, you can change your civilization to Japan once you have gotten to City Hall level 10. Japan increases your scouting speed, the attack of all troops you have, and resource gathering speed.

Rise of Kingdoms Zones

What is a Zone?

Rise of Kingdoms Zones

The image above shows that there are three areas in 3 different colors:

The Green area is called Zone 1: There are 14 green dots in total. Each dot is called “Pass,” you must cross the Pass to enter the new Zone or other Zone.

Blue area is called Zone 2: 26 passes connect between Zones 1 and 3.

The middle purple area is Zone 3: Nine passes connect between Zone 2 and Zone 3.

What is Zone 1?

Zone 1 is located at the edge of the Kingdom and is surrounded by mountains. When you first create a character in the new Kingdom, your city will spawn randomly around Zone 1.

This Zone is divided into six small areas. Level 1 Passes separate the areas from each other.

Zone 1 only has a low-tier resource deposit and low-level barbarians since this Zone is the beginning area. However, this is a perfect place for new cities because you don’t have enough troops to beat high-level barbarians and enough troops to carry the load from high-level resource deposits.

The Sanctum and Altar can be found in Zone 1.

What is Zone 2?

Zone 2 is located between Zones 1 and 3.

In entering Zone 2, your Alliance must take control of a Level 2 Pass that connects to the area you want to access.

In order to bypass this requirement, the Alliance leader must pass their leadership temporarily to a trusted friend or a second account, leave the Alliance, and join the Alliance that controls a Level 2 Pass. 

Afterward, they need to use a Targeted Teleport to transport to Zone 2, quit that Alliance and join the old Alliance. Lastly, the leader can build an Alliance Fortress inside Zone 2, allowing other Alliance members to move to Zone 2 through Territorial Teleport.

You will find better resources and stronger barbarians in Zone 2 than Zone 1.

In Zone 2, you can find Shrines.

What is Zone 3?

Zone 3 is located in the center of the map.

This Zone holds the most precious resource potential in all of the Zones. 

Zone 3 has a level 5-6 resource deposit and level 24-25 barbarians.

This Zone is also the most oppressive place to contest for entry due to its abundant resources and the area with the Lost Temple. Who controls the Lost Temple will be the King of that Kingdom, and of course, there will be many benefits to the King and his Alliance members. So it is the goal of every player and Alliance in the game.

The Lost Temple is always in the middle of Zone 3.

Thank you for reading and welcome to your journey as a growing Rise of Kingdoms player!
