Best Troops

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
Harald Sigurdsson
Aethelflaed
Aethelflaed
Cyrus the Great
Cyrus the Great
Constantine
Constantine
Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great

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:

White
White equip the white gear as it will be useful. This depends what commander you use as secondary commander and therefore also what troop types you will use with the commander. You can technically also use all white equipment if you have it lying around but I#d select them more how you need them
Blessed Blade
Blessed Blade is a good gear piece, unless you run this commander along cavalry marches, as you will get solid stats for infantry and archer troops
Helm of the Phoenix
Helm of the Phoenix also offer quite broad stats that I find the most helpful of the choices you have at this point
Milanese Plate
Milanese Plate also offers broad mix of stats that work, generally, the best here
Leather Gloves
Leather Gloves are my recommended gear piece now
Ranger Trousers
Ranger Trousers are, unless you run with a cavalry only march, a great gear piece to use
Edged Boots
Edged Boots are then the last green equipment that makes sense
Blazing Axe
Blazing Axe has attack for all troops types and is the perfect gear piece at this point and the one you probably rocking the longest time altogether

How to unlock

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
Karuak's War Drums
Horn of Fury
Horn of Fury
Concealed Dagger
Concealed Dagger
Delanes Amulet
Delanes Amulet
Ancient Stratagems
Ancient Stratagems
Call of the Loyal
Call of the Loyal

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.

Looking at Trajan realiticly, you should run him as the primary commander to get all his talent buffs going – and for me, there’s only one talent build that really makes sense.Basically everything in this talent build is working hand-in-hand with Trajan’s skills. You want to get Rejuvenate in the Support Tree first, this will boost 150 extra Rage everytime Trajan uses his primary skill and applies his buff. This will make his primary skill appear faster again, generating this extra rage again and so on.Then go to Strategix Prowess in the Leadership Tree, this will improve defense every time his active skill is used – and with Rejuvenate you already made sure that this is happening faster and faster so you will have that amazing 20% defense buff active a lot.And with Loose Formation in the Support Tree then you reduce all skill damage taken so you further reduce the skill damage you take by further taking skill damage. Then Emergency Protection will reduce that even further everytime you take skill damage.That’s a perfect setup to withstand in most brawls with Trajan and make his powerful apply to as many allies as it can.Attention! Running Trajan with a healing commander? Well, then you should swap the left side talents in the Leadership Tree (Armored to the Teeth) and invest them into the healing-based talents (Counterattack) in the Support Tree.

Conclusion

I hope this guide for building Trajan helped you investing without wasting much time and resources. If you liked it or you further questions (or maybe also annnotations that you believe should be added here in this guide), please don’t hesitate to post them below in the commen section. Thanks for reading and have a great day and see you out in the kingdoms.
