Best Troops

If you use Alexander as the primary commander, you also need to use infantry units as well. The reason is that his third skill march speed bonus, which is huge and super important, only applies to infantry units. Also, the only talent builds that really make sense with him are also designed around the infantry talent tree.

Yi-Seong Gye (YSG) is a universal pairing that provides dama ge and durability as they work well together so you can rally with them or run the open field. Mind this is for newer kingdoms only when there’s none of the newer and more powerful legendary commanders available. Charles Martel is a a good pairing, although their shields will NOT stack. It still works great (stacking their shields would theoretically make them invincible). El Cid is also a commander that can work pairing with Alexander in the earlier stages of a kingdom. Sun Tzu is a good choice if you donÄt have many legendary commanders, yet as you will generate loads of rage. Guan Yu along Alexander is solid setup for Sunset Canyon,too.

Best Equipment Forge Order

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Alexander the Great. I have tailored this priority order that you can follow step-by-step to prevent forging and running equipment that is not useful or only provides a very small improvement. Follow the equipment path step-by-step and you will have the best and most economical gear:

Iron Helm
Iron Helm is the first gear piece to forge and equip and has good attack stats for the invest
Cloth Gloves
Cloth Gloves is like the Iron Helmet a really low-hanging fruit with solud stats for the investment
Blessed Blade
Blessed Blade is an amazing piece with massive additional health for infantry and a must-gear piece at this point
Infantry Breastplate
Infantry Breastplate has some decent defense for infantry and is a solid next gear item especially as you can use any defensive stats that you can get at this point and they deliver just that
Ranger Trousers
Ranger Trousers are the only gear piece that you can use here that have infantry stats, although it's attack
Boots of Reverence
Boots of Reverence is like the Ranger Trousers the only green option with infantry stats but the attack it offers is in general not that important but rather have it than leaving this slot without anything
Windswept Bracers
Windswept Bracers are the first blue gear to equip and it changes the defense to health, which is great. As I mentioned in so many other spots, health is the strongest stat in Rise of Kingdoms so this is a switch that makes absolutely sense
Windswept War Helm
Windswept War Helm is the next item to use. It will make the set bonus for the Windswept set with additional attack and has more attack than the Iron Helm you had here so it's definitely an improvement
Windswept Boots
Windswept Boots is not the most obvious next step as most players tend to rather choose The Scarlet Hounds but hear me out. Your previous gear here had attack and the Scarlet Hounds looks very juicy with the 4% health, but with infantry at this point you struggle so much with march speed that the additional march speed in the Windswept Boots is more than worth it and you NEED this gear item to get the second Windswept Set Bonus of 4 items (as there is no Windswept leg gear), and this set bonus will give you additional 4% march speed. For that reason take the hit and skip the health and take the Windswept Boots here
Windswept Breastplate
Windswept Breastplate has solid defense and gives you the 2nd Windswept Bonus with 4% march speed so that should be your next step here

How to unlock

And for the artifacts I have tested the different ones here so you can see which ones perform the best (of course I only tested/list the ones that make sense):

Horn of Fury

Ring of Doom
Ring of Doom
Vengeance
Vengeance
Scolas Lucky Coin
Scolas Lucky Coin
Concealed Dagger
Concealed Dagger
Wind Scars
Wind Scars
Moras Web
Moras Web
Greatest Glory
Greatest Glory
Call of the Loyal

Horn of Fury helps Alexander the Great cycle through his active skill as quickly as possible and is a accessory that makes a lot of sense using with him.Ring of Doom adds more damage on percent so this also scales well with Alexander’s shole kit.

Best Builds For Alexander the Great

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Alexander the Great 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.

As I said, there’s only one viable build that you should use with Alexander and the reason is that his Versatility Tree is rubbish and doesn’t fit him very well. You won’t use Alexander in your garrison to defend you city so most talents there are nothing than a waste.Don’t spend any thoughts or talent points in the Versatility Tree and rather use this build to unlock his full power.Here’s the order how you should spend your talent points on him:First of all you go up the branches in the Infantry Tree and going straight left first to get Strong of Body on the left side. After that go to the right path and get Fleet of Foot – both of them are really well working. After that, make your way up to the top.You will only use him with a full infantry army so getting Elite Soldiers here in the Infantry Tree as the ultimate talent is only the logical step.After you’ve done that it’s time to tackle the Attack Tree and as you probably know from my other talent tree build guides you want to get Effortless there as fast as possible because it’s the sweetest talent you can get there.Now, depending on how far you leveld up your Alexander you might have some extra talent points left that you should start to spend down to Armored Joints.Martial Mastery is then your final goal here for your last talent points. The nice thing here is it will only reduce your skill damage but you don’t run any skill damage with Alexander (and hopefully you did a well pairing with a secondary commander, so your secondary commander won’t deal skill damage either). So this is a real no-brainer to take without any negatives on Alexander.Don’t mess around with any other talent tree build – this is the one you really want and need to use and that’s it.

Conclusion

I hope this guide for building Alexander the Great helped you investing without wasting much time and resources. If you liked it or you further questions (or maybe also annnotations that you believe should be added here in this guide), please don’t hesitate to post them below in the commen section. Thanks for reading and have a great day and see you out in the kingdoms.

  1. So Alex and Charles’ shields do not stack, ok, but does Charles’ shield trigger the defense boost from Alex’ 4th skill?
