Best Yi Seong-Gye (YSG) Builds (Talent Tree | Skill Order | Best Pairing) In Rise of Kingdoms

best yi seong-gye builds

Are you not sure how you can make a successful Yi Seong-Gye Build in Rise of Kingdoms?

You’re in the right place! I have here some really excellent working builds that you can also adapt if you haven’t maxed out Yi Seong-Gye and that will make him perform at his best on your way to success 🙂

Yi Seong-Gye Role

Yi Seong-Gye, also referred to as “YSG” in many references (in case  you didn’t know…), is right now one of the most powerful commanders that you can have for defending your city, battling on open field but also to lead mixed army rallies.

Below I have several talent tree builds that suit these roles perfectly and i’m sure that you will find them helpful 🙂

Current Ranking – is YSG S-Tier, A-Tier, or D-Tier?!

See how YSG is ranking in the different game modes of Rise of Kingdoms in my current tier list here.

Skill Order

When you star up YSG, you also unlock a new skill. This helps you fine-tune in what order you want to upgrade your skills as not all skills are equally good for him. This helps investing your sculptures more reasonable to get the biggest bang for your buck.

The best way to use this is maxing out YSG’s 1st skill (Rain of Arrows) before star up. Once you have the first skill maxed, max out the 2nd skill (Art of Archery).

Now star up to 4 stars and hope that as many points as possible land in his 4th skill (Destiny) that will plain increase the skill damage of Yi-Seong Gye and is a massive improvement.

From here you’ll expertise him.

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.

Best Commander Pairing

YSG is an exceptional commander in Rise of Kingdoms and actually shines in any aspect, no matter what you want to do he’s a great commander. But he’s not a perfect primary commander. You always want to use YSG as a secondary commander so please check the most useful commander pairings here.

Best Yi Seong-Gye Builds

So, I promised you some builds and without further ado I want to show them to you.

Arch Rage Build (Open Field)

This is the best build for any open field activity you’re planning to do with a lot of range and also march speed that is really needed for that:

yi seong gye open field archer rage build

Build with RoKTalent Builder

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.

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.

Arch Damage Build

This build here is an alternative build to the one above and focus less on rage but more on dealing damage in general. I personally favor the rage build more but depending on your secondary commander you might like this build more:

yi seong gye defensive archer damage build

Build with RoKTalent Builder

The points are not that different here and the only difference compared to the build above is that you will go further down the skill tree before using the Archer tree, that’s it 🙂

Again, it’s an alternative build and as always it depends on your personal favors which one you will like more.

Rally Leader Build

If you want to lead a mixed army rally this build here is working best so far:

yi seong gye rally leading build

Build with RoKTalent Builder

This is quite a popular build that also many in KvK used and it really works fine – here’s how to build it from scratch:

Skill (44 Points) – you’ll begin again in the skill tree first and get Rejuvenate at the top end position. This sudden restored rage is super valuable. From here on you should make your way over to Feral Nature. This is, in my opinion, the the first talents you want to get in this build.

Archer (30 Points) – now it’s time to work on the Archer tree and the first step would be to unlock  Razor Sharp and VEnomous Sting after that. If you got this you basically got it all done and the rest of your points is more like spending to spend them. I think the best option is getting Rapid Fire and Arrows Nocked in the archer tree as well because this makes most sense for this build.
