Wu Zetian is, hands down, the best commander to defend your city as the garrison commander – no doubt about that. Anyone who wants to say something else should quit Rise of Kingdoms.
All her skills are crafted perfectly around serving as a garrison commander and nothing else (although you could use her to defend objectives as well).
But what am I telling you this, you’re here to find a garrison build for Wu Zetian because you know how awesome she is and because you already want to use her as your garrison commander, right? 😉
Best Garrison Build For Wu Zetian
Wu Zetian is by far the most-effective commander that you can have in your garrison for defending your city, like mentioned above.
So, here’s the talent build you want to use with her that really makes her stand out and give the attacker a hard time:
Build with RoKTalent Builder
So, let’s take a deeper look at why I’ve chosen those talents and also at the order in which you should spend your talent points on Wu Zetian
The first step will be going into the Garrison Tree and pick up Nowhere to Turn for some extra rage with every attack you will get and you will pick up Inpenetratable Fortifications which will buff your defense when defending your city.
Next up is Impregnable which will significantly reduce the skill damage you take when defending your city. Along the way you will pick up Empty Fortress Strategem for a nice damage buff that you will deal. This is all we get in the Garrison Tree for Wu Zetian.
Next you will go to the Support Tree and get Rejuvenate as quickly as possible for that nice extra 150 rage whenever Wu Zetian or the secondary commander will use a skill. This is incredibly strong and will effectively reduce the time you need to use the skill from something like 10 seconds (before using it the first time) to somewhat around 5-6 seconds after skills start being used. There’s no stronger skill here to get!
After that it makes sense to go over to get Loose Formation for a reduction of skill damage you will get, especially when your city getting double-rallied or swarmed you will love the fact that you picked up that talent for Wu Zetian.
Next make your way to Emergency Protection. On the way you also need to pick up Elixir which will increase the healing of her primary skill which is also nice, no talent point wasted here.
Now you go into the Leadership Tree and there are some nice things that will complete this build.
Remember, with Rejuvenate we have started to get a rage engine rolling and the more additional rage we produce, the faster this extra rage from Rejuvenate will come. So, picking up Hidden Wrath here first is a great choice.
You ultimately want to make your way to Strategic Prowess, so getting healing herbs is mandatory and the additional healing is nice because you do some healing with Wu Zetian’s first skill anyway.
Now get over to get Strategic Prowess, although you will need to dump some points for march speed, it’s absolutely worth it.
You will get 20% additional defense from Strategic Prowess for 2 seconds after having used a skill. This will, thanks to your rage engine with Rejuvenate, Hidden Wrath and Nowhere to Turn, keep being active a lot and makes it total worth it. It will work also for your secondary commander so you can imagine with 5-6 seconds until the next round of skills come how much this will be active.
