He buffs in general well and some extra buffs apply to cavalry only, but in general as he’s the secondary commander you should not mind about him much when it comes to troop types.
Best Commander Pairing for Takeda Shingen
Joan of Arc (Prime) is a commander that works well with Takeda secondary. Don’t get me wrong, don’t build Takeda for her as she has many better pairings but if you have a well-invested Takeda running around and need a pair for her, he will do well with his buffs, healing, damage taken reduction etc.. Xiang Yu can be a valid pairing with Takeda as secondary commander, too. Xiang Yu although has better pairings himself but Takeda can help survivability of Xiang Yu (although you will still be focus down a lot). Attila has been the best pairing in the game for quite some time, but that time is long ago. They do well together but there are many counters available and stronger commanders have been released in Rise of Kingdoms, so in terms of nostalgic memories I have it listed here – but it’s NOT viable anymore.

Best Equipment Forge Order
You should not use Takeda as primary commander that there’s no use-case that will tell you otherwise so please accept that also it doesn’t make sense to equip nice shiny items on him.
And for the artifacts I have tested the different ones here so you can see which ones perform the best (of course I only tested/list the ones that make sense):
Best Builds For Takeda Shingen
I could really give you some theory-craft style of talent builds here, but the stone hard truth here is Takeda is not meant to be used as primary commander! You will get punished so heavily and focus down you wouldn’t believe it. Takeda is a secondary commander in Rise of Kingdoms and has always been and everything else is bs. I’m sorry but looking at all the websites there recommending you talent builds that are just non-sense that won’t change anything on the fact that Takeda as primary commander is not working and never has.
