Attila has been smashing since his release and with Takeda as the secondary commander you will have a pairing that will destroy – and half the community wonders how to stop this pairing.
I have here below the one and the only talent builds to use with Attila, no matter what you’re going to rally and there are some interesting aspects in it, for sure.
When you star up Attila, you also unlock a new skill. This helps you fine-tune in what order you want to upgrade your skills as not all skills are equally good for him. This helps to invest your sculptures more reasonably to get the biggest bang for your buck.
Here it depends what you’re planning to do with your Attila (first).
If you’re about to use him as a commander in the open field, then you want to max out his 1st skill like you would with every legendary commander. From here take him directly to 4-Star and then level his skills up until you maxed out his 4th skill which will add incredible amounts of damage if you do bring a full cavalry march.
If you do plan to rally with Attila, you will need to go after the Expertise and max him out, do doubt about that! If you plan to use him in the open field before that, go with the option above first. If you have plenty of other options for the open field simply level him up as you like.
You can, potentially, use Attila with other troop types as well – BUT the thing is that for the open field you will use the talents in the cavalry tree and his 4th skill is really important that it doesn’t make much sense to bring any other troops than cavalry.
If you do rallies with Attila you’re also depending more on the other troops but a full cavalry march is still helpful.
Best Commander Pairing
With Attile you will have multiple interesting options if you’re using him as the primary commander, but keep in mind that you want to stay away from commander that deal a lot of skill damage as Attila’s 3rd skill will reduce skill damage.
|No doubt here that Attila and Takeda are that dream combo and have been for months already.
Chandragupta is a interesting alternative, providing less sustain than Takeda but offering great synergy overall.
|Takeda the best for great sustain and synergy.
With Julius Caesar you have a lot of extra troops plus tankiness and boosted damage.
|Don’t invest in Attila with the intention to use him in Sunset Canyon but you can also use him there. Pair with Takeda but it’s not the best option.|

Best Rallying Build
Here’s the one and only talent build that you want to use with Attila when you go rallying stuff:
Build with RoKTalent Builder
So, the first thing you want to get is Effortless in the Attack Tree. Especially in rallies, you will have enough time to build up that full buff and it’s absolutely worth the points.
Now it gets interesting and I’d take Martial Mastery next. Martial MAstery normally is a deal with the devil because you will increase your normal attack damage a lot but also decrease your active skill damage – but Attila doesn’t deal direct damage with his first skill so there’s nothing you will lose but get a nice 6% increase of damage there.
Also Fight To The Death is a talent worth picking, even when it increases the damage you will get – but with your primary skill you will decrease the damage the opponent army deals so it’s not that tragic but you will get another nice increase in normal attack damage dealt.
It’s time for the Cavalry Tree and I don’t like to get Rallying Cry for that short buff, but there are several other talents that are relly working well here for Attila to make it worth spending a nice amount of them here.
First of all, you want to make your way over to the left to get Undying Fury, that’s plain and simple some extra rage that will come in handy and also work great to get the primary skill used more often (and especially when running Attila with Takeda you want to keep the primary skills rolling as often as possible).
As you’re already there you also want to make your way over to Disarm which will make the primary skill even stronger and give some nice extra reduction.
Now get Halberd, Charge and Galea next to be able to make your way to Emblazoned Shield. Emblazoned Shield will reduce the skill damage you take and is super helpful in rallies when you get multiple skill damage.
This is actually the build that I recommend and that many are using right now.
If you look at the Conquering Tree, there’s not much that is really useful for Attila. Buckler Shield would be somewhat okay to get but it only reduces the counterattack damage taken, Moment of Triumph is just a short buff. Also Thoroughbreds and Entrenched don’t really get me excited that much and it would cost quite a fortune to get so I think those points are better spend in the Cavalry and Attack Tree as shown above.
