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

rise of kingdoms frederick build

Frederick if, for sure, a very interesting commander and the talent builds can be really tough things to do – still, I think I have here some that will really help you and Frederick to perform best in Rise of Kingdoms.

Frederick I Role

Frederick can be a beast when you have a commander that will push his damage because his first skill means business in terms of damage. Frederick can do well on the open field but also rallying or defending objectives in the current meta, but his best objective is rallying cities.

With his first skill dealing that much damage you always want to focus on generating as much additional rage as you can to keep this skill rolling as often as possible.

Skill Order

When you star up Frederick, 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.

Frederick is all about dealing direct damage without caring about buffing or debuffing anything or anyone. You really want to max out his 1st skill when you have Frederick at 1-Star, it’s the most vital damage dealing skill you have with him, although it may sound not that appealing.

From here, take him to 2-Star and also max out his 2nd skill. This will give you that extra healing so no matter what you’re planning to do with him, he has the general skills.

In the long run, you want to expertise him to get even more damage, but I’d say you take him to 4-Star from 2-Star directly and unlock the 3rd and 4th skill to get these benefits as well. The 3rd skill is not that strong until you have him really well upgraded to be viable in rallying cities anyway.

Best Troops

Frederick doesn’t care about troop types at all. There’s no advantage or disadvantage of using a certain troop type, but if you use a secondary commander for rage generation (that Frederick really needs), you might meet the troop type standards of this commander as well.

Best Commander Pairing

With Frederick you will have some interesting options if you’re using him as the primary commander. In general, you will need a secondary commander that has a rage engine and generates extra rage for Frederick to roll his skill more frequently.

Rally Open Field Canyon
With Edward you will get increased skill damage from Tomyris poison and debuff as well. Still, you rather want to run Edward as the primary commander. Also here, Edward is the best choice for the same reason as I have him there for rally.

Best Frederick Builds

Without wasting any more time, let’s dive right into the talent tree builds 🙂

Rallying Cities Talent Build

This is the primary build to use when using Frederick to rally cities, no matter if that’s simple attacking or being the rally leader with him:

So let’s have a closer look at what the talent points are used for.

Conquering Tree is the first one to spend your talent points on and you want to go for Entrenched as fast as possible because it will improve the damage you deal on a garrison, which is the best you can have when attacking a city.

After that Tear of Blessing is, obviously, your second objective in the Conquering Tree here to reduce the amount of troops that die and rather get wounded when attacking another player’s city.

If you have both of them, Entrenched and Tear of Blessing, you can get Meteor Shower and this is a really helpful talent that can give you a huge additional damage buff for the next attack when it proccs.

Skill Tree is now your turn to get to Rejuvenate as quickly as possible to get that sweeet extra rage. If you remember my words in the beginning, we want to get as much rage as possible to get Frederick’s first skill rolling as fast and often as possible.

Leadership Tree is where you will spend your last points, depending how much you leveld Frederick up. Hidden Wrath is really nice to get the extra rage and Healing Herbs will halp the second skill heal your troops during the rally. Then you can also get the March Speed.

Rally Mixed Build

If you want to do rallies against objectives you can also use this alternative build here that focus on getting rage and skill damage buffed up as much as possible – which can give you a great blast:

Skill Tree is the first stop here to get Rejuvenate to get the extra rage to get your first skill rocking as often as possible.

Latent Power is here also very useful because it will give you a decent buff on your first skill damage.

Leadership Tree has some really nice talents in there that will buff your damage. Name of the King is the ultimate talent you want to get here.

But actually I like the build that I show now a little bit more…

Skill Build For Rage

I personally like this build here for rallying objectives more simply because it focus on creating more rage in the Skill Tree and the primary skill already deals such tons of damage that you don’t need to buff it and rather should get the rage generation buffed so it will get used more often during that rally with Frederick:
