When you star up Sargon, 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.
With the first skill it’s the same as with every legendary commander in Rise of Kingdoms, max it out before you star Sargon up. From here it gets interesting and after several weeks of testing I believe there’s something important to mind if you plan on building Sargon. His 2nd skill increases skill damage taken by the enemy by up to 30% (and you can reach that quick if you pair him with a commander like Guan Yu). plus additional buffs. This is a magic toolkit here so make sure to also max this skill out before staring up Sargon. Now the special thing here is, his 4th skill will wait until you have the full 10 stacks of debuffs spplied to the enemy and then give you a shield and deal some direct damage. But you will overall be better if you keep those 10 stacks from the 2nd skill applied on the enemy so I highly recommend to only max out his first 3 skills and then stop starring him up and neglect his 4th skill and his expertised skill and you will deal more damage with that setup!
Although Sargon is a Infantry commander, none of his skills require to only run infantry troops in a march to work, but he has a ton of buffs that only apply to infantry troops so it’s best to run as many of them in your march as possible.

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Sargon:
Infantry doesn’t have a favored gear set that you should go for in general, but I recommend aiming to equip this commander with Windswept items as basic equipment and then start aiming for Witch’s Lineage, Quinn’s Soul, Gatekeeper’s Shield, Seth,s Brutality, Kuruak’s Humility and Frost Treads when you gear it towards max
Best Builds For Sargon
Below you will find the talent tree builds for Sargon 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 my favorite talent build for Sargon as it will make sure that he generates as much rage as possible as cycling through his active skill is so important. You can use that in the open field, you can use it for rallying. The swiss-army knife of talent builds with Sargon. Invest into rejuvenate first and then right away into Clarity as those are talents that work like they are created for Sargon. Then max out the skill tree before picking up additional benefits in the Infantry Tree.
This is an alternative talent builds for Sargon that I’d only use for open field combat and the idea here is to maximize his potential by making sure your enemy won’t get away during the fight easily to trash your precious active skill that needs full 5 seconds to take impact perfectly. I personally like the rage build above more, but this also has some charm, espcially when it comes to march speed.
I hope this guide for building Sargon helped you invest without wasting much time and resources.
