Best Baibars Builds (Talent Tree | Skill Order | Best Pairing) In Rise of Kingdoms

rise of kingdoms best baibars builds

Baibars is actually a quite sweet epic commander in Rise of Kingdoms and you can use him quite well, especially if you get him early and start working on him early.

Baibars General Setup

There are actually two things you want to actually do with Baibars – and that’s catching other players in the open field or smash cities. He’s the only Cavalry-focused commander with AoE damage.

His Hasty Getaway skill is great if you might get into trouble and I personally like him more in the open field than actually rallying another city. But, both are possible with him.

Skill Order

When you star up Baibars, 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 reasonable to get the biggest bang for your buck.

In the case of Baibars, I’d recommend maxing out the first 2 skills forst. So, don’t star him up unless you have the first two skills (Sandstorm and Arabian Knights) both at Skill Level 5. Those are by far the most powerful skill for Baibars and if you don’t plan to star him up further you can leave it here.

If you want to max him out, unlock then directly the 4th skill (Lord Panther) and hope to get the skill points going in that 4th skill first.

From here you can then max him out and unlock his Expertise skill.

Best Troops

Only Baibar’s 2nd skill focus on Cavalry so you can theoretically miss out on that 20% attack boost and use a rainbow march, but I’d still recommend using a Cavalry march with him also because all talent builds that make sense with him have a lot of points in the Cavalry tree.

Best Commander Pairing

As mentioned above, Sun Tzu is a commander that works well as secondary commander for pretty much any other commander.

With Sun Tzu as primary commander you have several pair options:

Open Field

(Epic)

Open Field

(Legendary)

Ark of Osiris
In the open field, I’d pair Baibars as primary commander with Sun Tzu as secondary for crazy AoE damage and rage generation.You can also pair with Pelagius as the primary commander to get some healing in and get Baibars active skill rolling more frequently.

Boudica is also a great option as secondary or even primary commander for damage reduction (as 2nd) and also a lot of buffs (when 1st).

Pairing with Minamoto is also a great option for open field with a lot of synergies here. You can also use Saladin as primary commander for a crazy rage restoration and march speed.

Genghis Khan is also a big skill damage pairing but can be vulnerable so be careful here. William would also be interesting as secondary commander as Baibars would activate his primary skill more often as well as Mehmed as secondary commander

Using Belisarius as primary commander and Baibars as secondary will give you a huge march boost when leaving battle in Ark of Osiris. You can also use Cao Cao as primary commander which works as well as with Belisarius.

Best Baibars Talent Tree Builds

So, I have here three different builds for you that you can use and they are all about open field combat. Rallies against cities with Baibars are simply not working anymore (so don’t believe those who give you builds for it!).

Important! I always have a recommended order in which you should spend your talent points. I also want to take the situation and recommend you my guide about leveling your commanders faster here.

Open Field (Cavalry Build)

Here’s the build that you want to use when you want to chase down other players in the open field with a good mix of attack debuffs, march speed and enemy debuffing:

This is the build and if you haven’t maxed out Baibars, yet… this is the order that I would recommend you to spend your talent points on him.

Level 13: First of all, you go into the Cavalry Tree and get Charge first and make your way to the upper node that will improve your march speed. After that, get Halbred and also take the node behind that to get more march speed.

The reason is – and I do recommend getting Rejuvenate first in many other builds – that you will need that extra march speed in the open field. There’s no way you can really catch other armies if you’re slow, no matter how much rage you can produce in a battle…

Level 31-45: Now you should go to the left and spend your talent points on Undying Fury to generate some extra rage with every attack. Get now Emblazoned Shield and Disarm and ultimately get Rallying Cry.

Level 63: Now that you have the Cavalry Tree done, it’s time get into the Skill Tree and unlock Rejuvenate to get a rage engine rolling. Many people underestimate how powerful Rejuvenate is… you will get 150 rage every time when Baibars or the secondary commander uses their primary skill, so that’s a total of 300 rage out of the 1000 rage requirement you need – you basically will start generating rage for your skill a lot faster and cycle through the skill faster. And as the skill will be available faster, you will get the additional rage faster. So, it makes absolute sense to get Rejuvenate here.

Level Maxed: Tactical Mastery and Heraldic Shield are now for your last points and will reduce the skill damage you get a little bit and buff your primary skill (which you will use a lot more with Rejuvenate).

That’s the build for the open field and it’s one that I actually enjoy a lot with Baibars.

Open Field (Skill Defense Build)

For me this build makes most sense as Baibars isn’t a commander that can withstand a lot naturally, so adding some reduced skill damage will help him stick around more, although it will make his march slower.

Still, I think this build makes most sense:

Here’s my recommended order how build the talent tree if you haven’t maxed out Baibars so far:

Level 17: First you should go after Rejuvenate in the Skill Tree. I have described so many times how strong this is so don’t hesitate here, you will get a rage engine rolling and Baibars does need his primary skill to deal good damage.

Level 27: Complete the rage engine now by unlocking Undying Fury in the Cavalry Tree. This will add more rage generation and help a lot.

Level 51: now get Feral Nature in the Skill Tree for more rage and you will pick up several talents that will buff your troops and damage as well as your defense and reducing the skill damage you take.

Level Max: Now max out your points in the Cavalry Tree and get Emblazoned Shield and Halbred to reduce damage even more and you have your defensive skill build for the open field ready.

Open Field (Skill Speed Build)

This build here is all about march speed so you can hunt down enemies in the open field as effective as possible. A lot of points will go into the skill tree so you will also pick up some nice skill buffs for Baibars:

Level 51: now get Feral Nature in the Skill Tree for more rage and you will pick up several talents that will buff your troops and damage as well as your defense and reducing the skill damage you take.

Level Max: Now pick up the additional match speed points in the Cavalry Tree as well as getting the last points into Disarm to finish this build that gets you the best march speed without sacrificing all common sense.
