Bjorn Ironside is an epic infantry commander in Rise Of Kingdoms. it is easy to get him and you will use him all the time if you are an infantry player. Overall, Bjorn Ironside is a great commander for epic rarity.
Björn Ironside was a Viking leader whose history is said to be a mixture of fact and legend. Histories from the 12th and 13th centuries say he was one of the sons of the fabled Viking king Ragnar Lodbrok. Björn lived during the 9th century CE, and was said to be the first ruler of the Swedish House of Munsö. Legends say that when Ragnar became King of the Danes, custom demanded that he send out his heirs into the outside world to avoid challenges to his authority during his reign.
While waiting, his turn for the throne, Björn traveled the world, first sailing the demanded Seine in 855, pillaging his way through Francia before making, his way to Italy and the Mediterranean. It is even said he went as far as Egypt, to Alexandria, but was unable to capture the site itself. His journey at an end, he made his way back to Scandinavia, where he and his sons ruled until around 1060 CE.
Bjorn Ironside Guide
Bjorn Ironside is an epic commander so leveling and upgrading him is a no-brainer especially if you are preferring infantry units. Bjorn Ironside can be used for attacking cities and for field battles. But if you are on the old server it is not worth it to use him as rallying commander and it may be hard even to use him for field battles
But if you are on a new server you must use him as field commander.
Bjorn Ironside Talent Tree Build
PVP skill build is great if you want to nuke as much you can. You will get a nice rage generation and skill damage bonus. The problem with this talent tree is that you will die easier.
This build is great if you are a new player and you need more infantry status. Yes, you will do less skill damage but you will be able to survive more in big fights.
Bjorn Ironside Pairings
Great thing is that you can pair Bjorn with any infantry commander.
If you want to have more damage you can pair him WIth Sun Tzu, Guan but if you want to be a tank with less damage then you will pair Bjorn with Alex, Martel, or Richard. Every pair is good and use what you have.
