Skill Order

When you star up Jadwiga, 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.

As with every legendary commander in Rise of Kingdoms, you really want to max out her first skill before taking it any further. It deals good damage and the additional damage buff is amazing.

From here it’s a tough spot and depends how much you want to invest into Jadwiga. If you are willing to get her to 4-Star and have the stars, do that and unlock all the other skills. The 4th skill is the one you’re ultimately after for the extra rage while the other give nice buffs but don’t need to be maxed.

Expertising her is only needed when you want to use her as the garrison commander.

Best Troops

Although Jadwiga has no specific skill that requires cavalry units exclusively, her second skill does only buff cavalry troops and also all talent builds are including cavalry tree talents (when running Jadwiga as the primary commander). The clear recommendation is here to run as many cavalry units as possible with her.

Best Commander Pairing for Jadwiga

Theodora is a very good garrison commander pairing as they work so well together and as she is more about buffing, she should be the secondary commander in this pairing. Find the talent builds for Theodora here.
Wu Zetian is another great garrison pairing but for the Attile/Takeda era. Find the talent builds for Wu Zetian here.
Saladin is a commander I’d pair her with for the open field as he can generate a lot of rage. Find the talent builds for Saladin here.
Xiang Yu is another good pair for the open field combat with his direct damage factor of his active skill and getting Jadwiga’s buff. Also I’d run Jadwiga secondary with him. Find the talent builds for Xiang Yu here.

Best Equipment

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Jadwiga:
As Cavalry Commander, you want to equipt with the normal cavalry equipment gear pieces, starting with Windswept Set And Vanguard Set as the basic equipment to put onto him. From there you can take it to the more advanced equipment pieces

Ring of Doom increases her damage when you have her as your Garrison Captain or in a Pass. If you use her for a flag, though, Greatest Glory or Vengeance are valid choices as well instead of the Ring of Doom.
Horn of Fury just keeps her rage income steady and flowing and make her cycle through he active skill more frequently. Also here, in case you have her on a flag, use something like Vengeance instead as Horn of Fury won’t help her much here.

Best Builds For Jadwiga

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Jadwiga 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.

Here’s the build that I recommend using when you run Jadwiga as a garrison commander. With King’s Guard, Impregnable and Impenetratable Infortifications you have great talents to make any defensive situation better for you with good plain buffs. Saving Cross is the only talent useful from the mobility tree and the reduced skill damage is something you will definitely recognize.

Know The Enemy and Divine Favor are not really that useful so I recommend putting the remaining points in the Cavalry Tree. Undying Fury should be the first to generate a little more rage and Emblazoned Shield and Disarm are really useful and the buffs you pick up on the way there are also working well. For me not only a pretty solid setup, also one that I don’t see any alternatives to.

As I said in the beginning, I’m not a huge fan of running Jadwiga as primary commander in the open field due to her lack of rage generation, but if you do you have your reason so this is the build I’d run her with. This build is fast, you have so much additional march speed that you will be able to move quick around.

If you’re going in here get Undying Fury first to get the extra rage before getting Lightning Charge, Vortex and Saving Cross in the Mobility Tree. Then go to the Cavalry Tree and make all your way to the Rallying Cry that will ramp up damage and there’s a lot of useful buffs on your way there.

Last but not least get Hasty Departure and you’re good to go running Jadwiga in the open field. But as I said, you really want to consider running her as secondary commander to get her skills in as her talent trees aren’t that nice and use a rage engine commander primary.

For this case you really want to get all the march speed possible so this is the build that you should use. To make this build happen you want all the march speed you possibly can get and getting all in on the Mobility Tree is a must, unlocking Time Management as quickly as possible. From here you can use the remaining points to invest into Emblazoned Shield and this should do the trick for Jadwiga in Ark of Osiris as a carry.


I hope this guide for building Jadwiga helped you investing without wasting much time and resources.
