Arminius, known as his German name Hermann, was a chieftain of the Germanic Cherusci tribe who famously led an allied coalition of Germanic tribes to a decisive victory against three Roman legions in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD. An auxiliary lieutenant to the Roman general Publius Quinctilius Varus, Arminius used his knowledge of Roman tactics to ambus and destroy the legions. The defeat at Teutoburg would precipitate the Roman Empire’s permanent strategic withdrawal from Magna Germania, and the Romans made no more concerted attempts to conquer and hold Germania beyond the Rhine river. Modern historians have regarded Arminius’ victory as “Rome’s greatest defeat” and one of the most decisive battles in history.

Hermann Guide

Rise of Kingdoms does not have a lot of Epic archer commanders. Hermann is the best that we have for now.

Hermann is so good that he can defeat legendary commander El Cid in the 1vs1 scenario and he is a special commander that can silence for 2 seconds and reduce rage by 100 points. Hermann is great for PVP and PVE fights.

The only problem with Hermann is that he can be killed very fast. So you must be careful with him all the time or you will fill up your hospital very fast. In general Archers in Rise of Kingdoms can be killed easily so with all archers commanders you must be careful. Especially with commanders like Hermann who does not have skills that will give him survivability.

His main purpose is to target the nuking commander and silence them. On top of that, he will reduce target rage by 100 points.

Great choice if you do not have YSG and Ramesses. They will buff Archer damage and provide some nice nuking. Kusunoki will provide 15% more defense. It’s not much but it will give you some survivability.

Great pairing for Hermann. They will provide so much nuke damage. Because Hermann haves a 10% chance to generate 100 rage points, that will provide for YSG faster usage of skills.

Well El Cid is ok pair but it not worth getting El Cid on max skills. It’s better to use Kusunoki instead of wasting golden sculptures on the commander that is in same as Hermann.
