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

rise of kingdoms julius caesar talent builds

I think everyone in the world knows Julius Caesar and what he did, so no wonder he made it to Rise of Kingdoms as well and do what he does best – rally stuff 🙂

I have here several talent tree builds that you can use with him to get the most out of Julius Caesar.

Julius Caesar Role

Julius Caesar can do well in the open field but he really works best if you use him to rally things, either solo or as the rally leader with a mixed army.

He uses basically the same trees and talents as Hannibal Barca and the builds are the same – there was a reason they make a great rally combo when pairing those two commanders along with each other 🙂

Current Ranking – is Julius Caesar S-Tier, A-Tier, or D-Tier?!

See how Caesar is ranking in the different game modes of Rise of Kingdoms in my current tier list here.

Skill Order

When you star up Julius Caesar, 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.

Like you would with every legendary commander in Rise of Kingdoms, max out the 1st skill before you use any sculptures on Julius Caesar.

From here take him to 2-Star and also max out his 2nd skill. His 3rd skill is quite specific and excludes garrisons so my recommendation is to then take him from 2-Star to 4-Star directly and hope to land more points on his 4th skill for the increased troop capacity.

This counts especially for using Julius Caesar in the open field, if you do want to rally with him you need to expertise him anyway and max him out.

Best Troops

Caesar doesn’t care that much about troop types, so you can bring whatever troops you find most useful without having to neglect any bonuses.

Best Commander Pairing

With Julius Caesar you will have multiple interesting options if you’re using him as the primary commander:

Rally Open Field Canyon
In 2021 you don’t really want to rally cities with Caesar, but the pair with Barca is worth mentioning here.

With Mehmed you can form a huge army.


With Constantine you have a nice setup, with a lot of rage but all above setups work great as well.


With hose commanders you will have super sustainable setups in Canyon.

Let’s not waste any more time and go into the builds. Don’t get confused because you see Hannibal here in the images, their talent trees are the same so I used the same images but that’s it.

Rally Build

For me, the best build you can use with Julius Caesar is this one here to rally things:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

If you haven’t maxed your Julius Caesar so far, this is the order I recommend to use when re-creating this build:

First talent points will go into the Attack Tree and unlock Lord of War and Burning Blood. After that, you will make your path to Effortless, one of the most useful talents you can get in the attack tree.

Now it’s time to head to the Leadership Tree and get on the right side to unlock Strategic Prowess. After that Fresh Recruits for a bigger army is your next goal. After that take on the sides the Armored To The Teeth and Armed To The Teeth talents.

Finish The Leadership Tree with Close Formation and Name Of The King.

Last points if you have Julius Caesar maxed will go into the Attack Tree again with Armored Joints for some damage reduction

That’s the build – and as I said, it’s the most effective one if you use Julius Caesar to rally stuff.

Conquering Build

For hitting cities with Julius Caesar this is an alternative build that you can use:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

First of all go over to the Conquering Tree first and get Buckler Shield and Moment of Triumph before you make your way to Entrenched, which works great hitting garrisons.

Next up is getting Signal Flare and Marionette to unlock Meteor Shower over Tear of Blessing. Don’t spend any extra points in the Conquering Tree, they are better invested in the other trees.

Now go to the Attack Tree and unlock Burning Blood and Lord of War. This time we’re not getting Effortless because we want to get Strategic Prowess in the Leadership Tree. If you hit the cities solo you can thing about swapping that and get Effortless instead of Strategic Prowess.

Last points into the Leadership Tree where you want to unlock Hidden Wrath for some nice extra rage and Healing Herbs to Strategic Prowess (or not, if you got Effortless in the Attack Tree).

Open Field Build

If you plan to use Julius Caesar in the open field you can do that with this talent tree build here:

rise of kingdoms julius caesar open field build

Build with RoKTalents Builder

Go into the Attack Tree and make your way to Effortless first, like in the other talent builds above.

Next, get Armored Joints and Unyielding to be able to make your way to Last Stand to max out the Attack Tree.

Now it’s time to go over to the Leadership Tree to unlock Healing Herbs and Hidden Wrath to gain some extra march speed after that. 6% isn’t the world but it will help you for sure.

Now it’s time to unlock Strategic Prowess and Fresh Recruits.

I don’t like Fight To The Death or Martial Mastery in the attack tree that much so I rather go for Armored To The Teeth and Armed To The Teeth in the Leadership Tree.
