Skill Order

When you star up Joan of Arc (Prime), 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 any other legendary commander in Rise of Kingdoms, you want to invest and max out her 1st skill before you star her up to unlock more skills. This deals a tonof direct daamge plus a minor self-buff and is a great dmage source right off the bat. From here you can take it skill-by-skill as all of them are fantastic and buff up Joan Prime, her march and marches around, but I’d personally rather take the route of star her up enough that you can try to unlock all her skills to go towards a 5111 if possible to get the benefits of all skills as soon as possible. From here Expertise her and you will have a hard-hitting commander and you’ll never regret building her a single day.

Best Troops

Cavalry, Cavalry, Cavalry. Her skills, her talents and also synergies with other commanders in Rise of Kingdoms are all about cavalry so best just take a full cavalry march with her to gain the most out of it without overthinking too much how mixing troops can affect things here.

Best Commander Pairing for Joan of Arc (Prime)

Alexander Nevsky is my personal favorite commander pairing and you’d use Joan Prime as the primary commander to get all those buffs going and then gain Nevsky’s extra hard-hitting active skill + the additional benefits of more extra attack when running full cavalry. They simply punch so well together that you don’t want to ever use any other setup ever again. Find the talent builds for Alexander Nevsky here.
Xiang Yu is also a pairing that you might take a deeper look into. You get Yiang Yu fire off his active skill with the debuff before Joan and the damage they do is just out of this world. But, and here’s the dealbreaker for most players, there’s no defensive capabilities at all and the only way to make this march durable is using equipment with a lo of hitpoints and defense. Find the talent builds for Xiang Yu here.
Honda Tadakatsu is on the other hand a great commander to cover the damage you take and give the glass-cannon Joan a nice buffer and more durability plus his increased skill damage buff the less troops you have works really well along Joan with her high skill damage skill. Find the talent builds for Honda Tadakatsu here.
Mehmed II also provides extra skill damage and provides more defense so Joan will not burn down so fast. Find the talent builds for Mehmed II here.
Julius Caesar can also work but should not be your first pick here. The synergy they have is that Julius has his active skill buff and when you get the extra attack from Joan in within that 5 seconds, you will pack a huge punch. Find the talent builds for Julius Caesar here.

Best Equipment

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Joan of Arc (Prime):
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 her. From there you can take it to the more advanced equipment pieces

Horn of Fury is the accessory that fits so well on Joan of Arc Prime as you want to cycle through your active skill as fast as possible to deal that huuge damage factor – and the extra rage you gain from horn is very useful.
Ring of Doom adds more damage and is exactly what Joan Prime loves to do, and scaling up by percentage is even better and help her deal even more damage.

Best Builds For Joan of Arc (Prime)

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Joan of Arc (Prime) 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 only talent build for Joan and here are some annotations to it. Start off by getting Rejuvenate in the Suport Tree, but don’t invest more than 2 points here as the Rejuvenate in the Support Tree generates a lot more rage than the one in the Skill Tree and with all 3 points there you’re very likely generating over the rage cap so all extra rage is going nowhere. Emergency Protection is a talent that may be more worth your while and helps reducing Joan getting hit too hard with skill damage. The other points should then all go into the Cavarly Tre from here. We talked about this above how you should run Joan Prime only with Cavalry troops so she will gain a lot more from this side of the talent tree.


I hope this guide for building Joan of Arc (Prime) helped you investing without wasting much time and resources. If you liked it or you further questions (or maybe also annnotations that you believe should be added here in this guide), please don’t hesitate to post them below in the commen section. Thanks for reading and have a great day and see you out in the kingdoms.
