Best Troops

Use all infantry. His 3rd skill demand you to use ONLY infantry units with him and also the only talent build that makes sense has most points in the Infantry Tree.

Best Commander Pairing for Cheok Jun-Gyeong (CJ)

Alexander the Great as the primary commander you have a great pairing, but you need Alexander to be expertise to get the massive damage increase for Cheok’s primary skill. Another bonus here is that they have identical talent trees so they share perfect synergy there as well. Find the talent builds for Alexander the Great here.
Guan Yu is a great fit with Cheok’s 4th skill increasing skill damage that Guan Yu benefits directly from with how two skills that deal direct skill damage. Find the talent builds for Guan Yu here.
Harald Sigurdsson is a nice pairing with CJ for pretty much the same reason. They boost their damage vice versa so you can also nuke a lot with them. I’d use Harald as the primary commander in this pairing. Find the talent builds for Harald Sigurdsson here.

Best Equipment

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Cheok Jun-Gyeong (CJ):
Infantry doesn’t have a favored gear set that you should go for in general, but I recommend aiming to equip this commander with Windswept items as basic equipment and then start aiming for Witch’s Lineage, Quinn’s Soul, Gatekeeper’s Shield, Seth,s Brutality, Kuruak’s Humility and Frost Treads when you gear it towards max

Horn of Fury helps CJ to go through his active skill cycle as fast as possible and should be your first choice of accessory you’re running with him.
Ring of Doom simply scales up the damage and is another great legendary accessory to use with CJ.

Best Builds For Cheok Jun-Gyeong (CJ)

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Cheok Jun-Gyeong (CJ) 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.

Actually there’s only one build for Cheok that makes much sense. Here’s the best order how to build this setup…

Attack Tree: will be your first priority and you want to get Fight To The Death. It will increase the damage taken but you will get such a nice boost for the damage. Then get Effortless for another nice damage increase the longer the battle lasts. With Armored Joints you then get the damage you get from Fight To The Death neutralized.

Infantry Tree: will now be your next step and you will try to get Elite Soldiers and I’d take Snare of Thorns first. This is helpful as this build misses out some extra march speed for the good reason of other buffs. Then use the remaining points as shown above.
