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

rise of kingdoms best mehmed II builds

With Mehmed II as commander it’s all about rallying cities – this is what he does best and this is what a talent build for him should be built for.

I have here the two build that makes most sense for doing that with some additional tips and also my recommendation how you should spend those talent points if you haven’t maxed out Mehmed, yet.

Mehmed II Role

If you look at the skills, they are for rallying a city and will give nice benefits – and that’s what you want to use Mehmed for! Theoretically, you can also use him in the open field but I found there’s not enough march speed talents in his trees to actually make that work great plus you will waste some of his skills.

So, let him do what he does best and rally a city (or many) with him 🙂

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

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

Skill Order

When you star up Mehmed, 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.

Normally with every other commander you have ways to fine-tune the skill levels, but with Mehmed it’s super clear by the use-case you’re planning him with.

See, Mehmed gets his ultimate power when your expertise him, this will add incredible additional damage factor to his active skill. For that reason you should aim for maxing him out completely but depending on the stage you have him you can’t use him for what he’s designed for. A 2-Star Mehmed as the rally leader wouldn’t make much sense, right?

Stage 1: 1-Star to 3-Star Mehmed:

At this stage you should only use Mehmed for open field combat or join rallied armies that are lead by other players. I’d say you should max out Mahmed’s 1st skill before getting him to a higher star level.

Then you can take him to 3-Star and max out his skill levels.

Stage 2: 4-Star (Non-Expertised)

At this stage you max out all his skills and Mehmed starts to become a better rally commander. You can start using him to attack other cities now as well.


Now you’re ready to make Mehmed also a rally leader and he will be insanely strong.

Best Troops

Mehmed doesn’t care at all about troop types so bring whatever troops you can make a strong march with.

Best Commander Pairing

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

Rally Cities Open Field Canyon
Here you want commander with high synergy and those that also increase active skill damage and deal active skill damage themselves.  

For the open field, Minamoto or Cao Cao will work fine with a full cavalry march.


Pair with commanders that deal active skill damage and/or raise active skill damage.

Best Talent Tree Builds For Mehmed II

Without wasting any more time, here are two builds that work best for rallying a city with Mehmed.

Best Rallying Build

So, if you do what Mehmed does best with him, you want to rally cities and this is the talent build that I can recommend for that:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

If you don’t have Mehmed maxed out you want to follow this order when spending your talent points…

First, you go into the Skill Tree and get Rejuvenate to get a nice rage engine rolling. Rejuvenate means that you will get 150 rage each time Mehmed or your secondary commander will use a skill and it has a huge effect – before you use your skill the first time, it will take aorund 10 seconds to build enough rage but after that, the additional rage will let you roll through the skills within around 6 seconds. Best choice to spend your first talent points.

You will also gain additional rage from Burning Blood on the way and All For One is also a nice talent if you have a secondary commander that uses a primary skill that deals direct damage.

Next you will head towards the Leadership Tree and get Hidden Wrath first – this is again additional rage that you can use quite well. After that I would go towards Strategic Prowess because with all the additional rage and Rejuvenate you will roll your skill quite frequently so you can get that additional 20% defense active most of the time.

After that make all the points on the right side so you get Close Formation to be able to unlock Name of the King on top.

After that, you can spend the points for Armed to the Teeth and Armored to the Teeth on the sides.

If you now have some points left because you maxed out Mehmed you can spend them in the Skill Tree again in Tactical Mastery and Heraldic Shield.

Alternative Rally Build

If you want to get the Conquering Tree for a rally build, here’s an alternative version that you can also use – I personally like the above one more but this will also work with Mehmed:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

You will first go to the Conquering Tree and go straight towards Meteor Shower without spending any optional talent points.

Meteor Shower can be very powerful but, and that’s my personal opinion, I don’t like that it can be squishy sometimes as you rely on a 10% chance – if it procs often, you’ll do a very well but on the flipside of the coin if you’re not lucky it’s not that strong. That’s the reason why I normally recommend the talent build above for Mehmed.

After you got Meteor Shower, you want to head over to the Skill Tree. Yes, Rejuvenate is simply too strong (for the reasons I mentioned above) to not have it in any build for Mehmed so this is your next must-have goal in this talent build as well.

After that go to the Leadership Tree and unlock Hidden Wrath.

With the last points you have here you can either take them into Tactical Mastery and Heraldic Shield in the Skill Tree or spend them in plain defense/health/damage stats for your army in the other tree.
