When you star up Boudica, you also unlock a new skill. This helps you fine-tune in what order you want to upgrade the skills of your commander as not all skills are equally good and worth maxing or worth maxing first (in general) – this helps to invest your sculptures more reasonably to get the biggest bang for your buck.
In theory, there are two routes to take here, but the first one is very likely the ones you should take…
Option 1: You’re a new player or you’re in a new kingdom and you will use Boudica as one of your first commanders you have. This will later translate to her being still very useful against barbarians and forts in later stages of Rise of Kingdoms as well… So, max out her first skill before you star her up. From here you should get her to 2-Star and max out her second skill for the extra experience from barbarians, this will help leveling her and other commanders you’ll unlock a lot. Then take her to 4-Star and put her skill points into the other skills which are pretty much the same strength. I personally found that her fourth skill brings more damage but the 3rd one helps more in the sustainability of her march, so both will bring you benefits.
Option 2: You’re in a new kingdom and all you care is hunting other players in the open field… in this case max out her 1st skill and take her to 4-Stars and max out her 4th skill.
The nice thing about Boudica is that she doesn’t care about troop types at all. You can bring whatever troops you like and especially in the earlier stages of the game this is super helpful.

Best Builds For Boudica
Below you will find the talent tree builds for Boudica 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 is the main build that you should use with Boudica to do what she does best, and that’s hunting barbarians and attacking forts. So, if you haven’t leveld up Boudica to max level, this is the order in which you should do this build: First go to the Peacekeeping Tree and get Insight. There’s no doubt that this should be your first step as it will reduce the amount of action points required to go after barbarians. After that, go to the Skill Tree and get Rejuvenate as fast as possible. Boudica already does generate extra rage with her 3rd skill and with this one you will start rolling her primary skill a lot more frequently. Remember, Rejuvenate does also activate when your secondary commander uses a skill! No head back to the Peacekeeping Tree and get Trophy Hunter. Trophy Hunter is also a no-brainer in this build because it will give you additional resource packs for every successful attack on barbarians so it will add a lot of extra value to those attacks. Next up is Thoroughbreds simply because the 9% added march speed is extremely valuable and as you normally hunt barbarians when being online it will give you also some less waiting time. Now getting Domination is the next step and it will increase the skill damage (which is already nice with Boudica) against Barbarians for another 15% and Killer Instinct for more normal attack damage. After that, go back to the Skill Tree and make your way to Feral Nature as fast as possible. Feral Nature will also generate extra rage and you will, along with Rejuvenate, be able to cycle through Boudica’s primary skill in like 5 seconds or so. Last 2 points can then go into Naked Rage which is fine if you’re hunting barbarians. With the additional rage you will rock your way through your skill that frequently that you will gain a lot more from the extra skill damage than the extra skill damage you take to make it worth it.
If you rather want to hunt down other players’ armies in the open field, you rather want to use this build here. First step here will be getting in the Skill Tree to get Rejuvenate to get your rage engine rolling and Burning Blood and All For One are nice talents to pick up along the way. Now get over to the Peacekeeping Tree and go all the way through to Thoroughbreds. There are some “wasted” talent points there if you really don’t want to attack barbarians or other neutral units but you will need to get the additional march speed from Throroughbreds. After that, it’s time to get back into the Skill Tree and get all the talents done to unlock Feral Nature for the additional rage. It’s always a tricky point to decide whether you want to get the extra rage here or to go after the additional march speed but I rather let some other players armies slip through and get more bang done when I get one rather than catching them all but losing more troops in the battle. The thing with the Integration Tree is that there’s nothing good to get except the additional march speed so that’s the reason why you should spend the rest of your talent points there at the very end when you have Boudica maxed out.
