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

rise of kingdoms best belisarius builds

Belisarius is one of my favorite epic commanders in Rise of Kingdoms and with his speed he can be a great option for several things.

Belisarius Role

Belisarius is quick and he has the Mobility Tree, this makes him perfect for the open field to run around catching other players’ armies or killing barbarians and attacking forts – that’s the best use for him.

Also in KvK you can use him great to take out armies that players left to hang out.

Current Ranking – is Belisarius S-Tier, A-Tier, or D-Tier?!

See how Belisarius is ranking in the different game modes of Rise of Kingdoms in my current tier list here.

Skill Order

When you star up Belisarius, 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.

There are two options you have with Belisarius, but the first step will always be the same – max out his primary skill before taking him to 2-Star

If you’re early in the game or kingdom and you don’t have that many commanders and Belisarius is a commander you will use frequently against barbarians, you also want to max out his 2nd skill before you take him to 4-Stars.

If not, take him to 4-Stars directly and hope to skip the 2nd skill as much as possible.

After all, you will max out all your epic commanders pretty fast and automatically in Rise of Kingdoms within the first weeks/months, so there’s actually not that much use in micro-managing like that.

Best Troops

Belisarius is all about cavalry and you shouldn’t use any other unit type with him. His 3rd and expertise skill both care about cavalry and also add march speed to them to get out of squishy situations, with other troops you will get a problem at this point. Also, all reasonable talent builds with Belisarius require him to use the cavalry tree for talents.

Best Commander Pairing

With Belisarius you will have multiple interesting options if you’re using him as the primary commander:

Barbarians Open Field Suns. C.
When leveling with barbarians, you can combine Belisarius with just about any commander.  

With Joan of Arc or Baibars you have a super quick and versatile march that also allows you to leave a situation quickly.

With Boudica you will generate a lot of rage and also get some healing.

Actually you can pair with any cavalry commander here, all works really well.

Best Talent Tree Builds For Belisarius

So, let’s have a look at the builds for him.

Open Field Build (Fast)

So, if you want to run around in the open field with a general build, this is the one that I use myself during KvK and that I can really recommend:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

A little disclaimer, this is not the fastest possible build, but in my opinion a very fast build for Belisarius if you want to run around in the open field and take down farming armies.

If you don’t have Belisarius maxed out, you want to spend your points in that order:

First, go into the Cavalry Tree and get Charge to get to the notes behind it that will increase your march speed. After that, get Galea and the other march speed node behind it.

Now you can get Emblazoned Shield to reduce the skill damage you’re taking.

It’s now time to go to the other side of the Cavalry Tree and get Dragon Saber and Halberd and make your way up to Disarm. You also have another extra march speed for cavalry units there, which you should use exclusively with Belisarius and you already picked up some nice extra speed.

Now you want to get Rallying Cry maxed out to finish your work on the Cavalry Tree.

Up next you go into the Mobility Tree and get Lightning Charge and Spiked Armor which is helpful for sure when you’re running around in the open field.

Then make your way to Hasty Departure for that super strong march speed boost. You can also use that now to charge at a resource node on your way or use a resource node on the map to get away – I really find that useful here and there so it’s a no-brainer for me to pick Hasty Departure.

Last points then will go into the Peacekeeping Tree where you need to spend some points towards barbarians but you want to make your way to Thoroughbreds for another march speed increase.

Now you’re really fast and still have a well-balanced talent build for Belisarius.

Barbarian Build

If you, however, want to go out there to hunt barbarians or attack fortresses, this is the build that you rather want to use:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

With this build you want to go into the Peacekeeping Tree first because there are several things that will give a nice benefit if you plan to fight against barbarians exclusively with Belisarius.

So, get Insight first to reduce the amount of action points you need to get more of them in the same time – this is without any doubt the first talent you want to unlock.

Next, I’d get Quick Study to get Trophy Hunter unlocked – this will give you an additional resource pack for every barbarian you slay and will add up in the long run pretty well, so get it as soon as possible.

Now you should go into the Cavalry Tree and go to Undying Fury as quick as possible to generate extra rage with every attack.

Now get back into the Peacekeeping Tree and get Killer Instinct, Domination and Thoroughbreds as well there.

After that it’s time to go back into the Cavalry Tree to get your path towards Rallying Cry. You might notice that Rallying Cry only has 3/5 in this build in favor of getting Undying Fury – I personally find that better but you can also think about dropping 2 more points into Rallying Cry and only get 1 point into Undying Fury, up to you. I do like the extra rage more but that’s something we can discuss int he comments 🙂
