With his 3rd skill and all other dependencies, Trajan NEEDS to be used with mixed troop types to get the most out of him (and that means you need to bring all 3 different troops types).
Best Commander Pairing for Trajan
Harald Sigurdsson The dream team of pairing Trajan for me is running him Harald Sigurdsson for the reason that Haralds 4th skill counts as an active skill and will trigger most of Trajan’s talents (see that below) so the synergy is incredibly high. Aethelflaed Another good setup to use is running Aethelflaed primary to hide your Trajan as he will get hunt down with priority and enjoy the synergies both of the commanders share. Cyrus the Great With Cyrus you also have a nice setup and punish every player hunting Trajan where you can punish really well as Cyrus will start dealing AoE damage as soon as getting attacked. The small downside is that Cyrus cares a lot about Archers so you miss out on some of the potentials here.. Constantine is also a pair to think about as he will buff all troop types, Hannibal Barca for the AoE debuff for a crazy buffing march. Alexander the Great with the bufferful protective buff are also options to consider.

Best Equipment Forge Order
In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Trajan. I have tailored this priority order that you can follow step-by-step to prevent forging and running equipment that is not useful or only provides a very small improvement. Follow the equipment path step-by-step and you will have the best and most economical gear:

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):
Karuak’s War Drums are doing well with Trajan as they will grant extra rage to him and allies and contribute well to his role.Horn of Fury are also a very important legendary accessory with Trajan to make sure he fires off his active skill so all other marches will gain extra damage.
Best Builds For Trajan
Below you will find the talent tree builds for Trajan 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.
