If you’re going to max him out and have him with his 4th skill unlocked, bringing only cavalry units is vital as the 4th skill only works when there’s only cavalry in your march led by Alexander Nevsky. If you’re starting out working on him you can use a mixed march and only miss out on the defense for other troops than cavalry.

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Alexander Nevsky:
As Cavalry Commander, you want to equipt with the normal cavalry equipment gear pieces, starting with Windswept Set And Vanguard Set as the basic equipment to put onto him. From there you can take it to the more advanced equipment pieces
Best Builds For Alexander Nevsky
Below you will find the talent tree builds for Alexander Nevsky that make sense when running as the primary commander in any march in Rise of Kingdoms. Please also refer to the description below each talent tree as I explain a general route on how you should spend your talents there + some additional background for each talent build that I very likely will appreciate.
This build plays around the two big things that make Alexander Nevsky that strong – getting the defense reduction debuff on the enemy active and also roll that high skill damage primary skill – so with this skill build, you will generate a ton of rage and even as there’s a rage cap on how much range you can generate per tick, this one makes sure you’re cycling through Nevsky’s skills as fast as possible. Here’s how to build it if you haven’t maxed Nevsky so far and can’t spend all the talent points right away… You want to make it to the Feral Nature talent as quickly as possible and I recommend you to start on the side of Rejuvenate that will get the rage engine rolling. That’s the bread and butter here. From here you can start investing in the Cavalry Tree but make sure you have Feral Nature first before even thinking about any other talent tree.
Alternatively, and this depends on the way how you do your combats in the open field, this build can also be interesting to you. The final talent in the Cavalry tree will give you a massive boost when entering battle but only for the first 15 seconds. And this is where many players wouldn’t go with for the reason that they like to stay in battle and switching targets to not lose rage. If you choose this build with Nevsky, you need to enter battle, leave and enter again to make full use of it. I potentially see the damage output on paper higher if you’re willing to handle your combats like that as you might not exceed the rage cap. When building this, you still want to go for rejuvenate first to keep the rage engine rolling as you really want Alexander Nevsky to cycle through his skills as fast as possible. From here all-in to the Cavalry Tree.
This is a hybrid build of the two ones above I’ve been experimenting around successfully since the release of Nevsky. The main idea here is to not get the full Cavalry final talent because you want to stay in combat by switching targets so not lose any rage and you switch in Clarity in the Skill Tree because it will give an skill damage boost every time a skill is used – and with the rage you generate with this talent build you will cycle through the skills fast. Also here, go for Rejuvenate first, the Clarity and then spend the remaining points in the Cavalry Tree.
I hope this guide for building Alexander Nevsky helped you investing without wasting much time and resources.
