Best Troops

Although none of Yi-Seong Gye’s skills do target archer troops specifically, many of his builds depend on the Archery Tree and will benefit archers (especially for the badly-needed march speed.

Boudica (Prime) with Yi-Seong Gye as secondary commander is a great pairing for KvK Season 4+ and probably one of the best archery pairings towards end-game of a kingdom you can run. Nebuchadnezzar is another really strong pairing with YSG secondary and you have a ton of skill damage and archer synergy going on for LvL Season 4 and beyond. Alexander Nevsky is also a very good archer pairing with YSG as the secondary commander after KvK Season 3 – although you lose some utility from the archer synergy the defense debuff is just working so well here. Alternatively you can also use Ramesses but his defense reduction is less effective but a good alternative option. Alexander the Great as primary commander is an amazing commander to pair YSG with in KvK Season 2-3, although he is no archery commander and you would use a full infantry march. This becomes less useful later but for the named KvK seasons you will dominate heavily with this pairing. El Cid is a great commander to pair YSG early in the game if you don’t have any of the above commanders available. Still, I’d recommend running YSG secondary or you will get swarmed down heavily. El Cid is working wonders especially with his 4th skill march speed so make sure you have that skill unlocked, though.

Best Equipment Forge Order

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Yi-Seong Gye (YSG). 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:

Chain Mail
Chain Mail is super cheap to craft and gives some attack so it's the best first gear item to craft and equip
Sturdy Boots
Sturdy Boots will give some defense and gathering speed which is not too exciting but they are also cheap to craft and give at least a few stats and should be your second gear item to equip
Helm of the Phoenix
Helm of the Phoenix is the first green item to craft and equip and although the stats overall are not too impressive, at this early stage they still help and are a solid progress
Leather Gloves
Leather Gloves gives some health which is always good (and I mentioned numerous times that health is the strongest stat in the game) so you can't go wrong now with this as your next gear item, espcially considering the low crafting costs
Ranger Trousers
Ranger Trousers is also not too exciting but the only green piece that gives any stats to archers so take it
Blessed Blade
Blessed Blade is the last open gear slot to equip and the reason why I recommend this last is that archers normally don't have a huge problem with attack and this item provides attack), they normally struglge more with durability in combats so this will make you deal more damage which is fine but doesn't help with any defensive stats at all - for that reason I recommend this gear item last here
Commanders Heavy Armor
Commanders Heavy Armor is the next gear piece and you should skip the green one here for sure as it is even worst for archer stats than the white gear piece you're having, so get the blue directly and save yourself some crafting resources and the health increase you get here is quite massive
Staff of the Lost
Staff of the Lost should be the next gear to replace the green one, for the simple reason that you can now get defense instead of attack which makes your march a lot more durable and reliable

Best Builds For Yi-Seong Gye (YSG)

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Yi-Seong Gye (YSG) 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 build here is the one I’d run YSG with and although it neglects some of the rage you generate, it will give you march speed which is extremely important for YSG in the open field. Like I said, you want to get the bang but also the speed so when rebuilding this on a Yi Seong-Gye that is not fully maxed (what probably is the case), you want to create this build as follows:Skill (30 Points) – your goal is to get the march speed first because this is what makes you catch other armies on the open field, if you’re slow you can deal as much damage as you like. So, work towards the 6% extra march speed in the skill tree first. Still, I’d first pick Rejuvenate here before picking anything else in the Skill Tree.Archer (46 Points) – now it’s time to get as much bang as possible and buff your archer army up in the Archer tree. As you can see you want to get as much as possible out of it but you can’t get all the points in here (otherwise you would miss the extra march speed). All points here are well spent.
If you’re more interested in rally with YSG, this is a slightly adapted build that I’d use with more damage output and slightly less march speed. Please mind this is a build you’d only use if you plan on rally in a very early kingdom where this is a possible move to make.
Swarming a city is fun with YSg and this is the build I’d absolutely run for that. If you’re about to swarm a city and you want to take him as the primary commander, this is the build that will give you the biggest bang for your buck.

Conclusion

I hope this guide for building Yi-Seong Gye (YSG) helped you investing without wasting much time and resources.
