Skill Order

When you star up Joan of Arc, 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.

The most reasonable skill unlock order would be that you do get her primary skill to Level 5 before you take her to 2-Star. Even though you will find her useful later in other game modes than gathering, you still will use her a lot gathering so maxing out her 2nd skill for that additional gathering speed at 2-Star is what I recommend.

From here you can either star her up and unlock her skills in order or you take her to 4-Star directly and unlock her 3rd and 4th skills randomly. That’s fine-tuning that doesn’t matter in the long run.

Best Troops

Joan of Arc doesn’t care about troop types. If you use her for gathering, bringing Siege Units is useful for the loading speed, but in any combat situation she will buff all troop types.

Best Commander Pairing for Joan of Arc

Alexander the Great is a great commander to hide Joan of Arc as secondary commander behind and let her support make him really strong. Find the talent builds for Alexander the Great here.
Charles Martel has a lot of durability and with Joan of Arc secondary, you will have a very durable setup running. Find the talent builds for Charles Martel here.
Richard is pretty much the same as Charles Martel and can benefit a ton from running Joan of Arc as secondary commander in the open field. Find the talent builds for Richard here.
Sun Tzu is a very good epic pairing with good damage plus a ton of rage (make sure to not rage cap above 220 rage generated per attack). Find the talent builds for Sun Tzu here.
Boudica is a early but great pairing for open field, Sunset Canyon and barbarian hunting. Find the talent builds for Boudica here.

Best Equipment

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Joan of Arc:
As Joan of Arc isn’t normally a commnder that you want to run as the primary commander (she will get hunted down mercilessly), there’s no reason to equip her with any gear. If you don’t have other commander, equip whatever you have

Best Builds For Joan of Arc

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Joan of Arc 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.

So, this is the gathering build that I would recommend to anyone asking for such a build for Joan of Arc. This build basically takes all the resource gathering talents in the Gathering Tree and then picks up all the extra march speed talents in the Support Tree and the Integration Tree that you can get afterward.

When talking about the order how to spend the points (if you haven’t maxed out Joan of Arc yet), I’d go down the gathering tree first and then go into the other trees for the extra march speed.

The reason why I would do that is that you probably are not gathering non-stop and when gathering takes some extra minutes you’ll be okay with that and can adapt – but bringing home more resources is a direct benefit that you will take advantage of right away. For that reason, first go down the gathering tree and then take the march speed in the other trees.

But now let’s get to the more interesting build in the open field with Joan of Arc and this is it. March speed is almost everything in the open field, so your very first talent point should go into the Gathering Tree to pick up that cheap extra march speed – this is the only talent point you’ll be feeding into the Gathering Tree.

After that go into the Support Tree and go after Rejuvenate first. This will give you 150 rage each time you use Joan of Arc’s skill so after the first time it will take less time until she can use that skill again and you will get some nice rage engine rolling with her.

I can only tell you, this will get her skill popping from something like 10 seconds for the first time to like 5-6 seconds after that so you will see that firing like a machine gun.

Next go over to get Counterattack, this will be a nice boost after each healing and you will see that popping a lot. From here max out the Support Tree and see how you can spend your leftover points.

In the Integration Tree you will go after charge first and the march Speed to get some nice extra boost in march speed.


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

Thanks for reading and have a great day and see you out in the kingdoms.
