Kusunoki is a great epic archer commander in Rise Of Kingdoms. His first skill removes all negative and control effects from his troops and also its AOE damage. Kusunoki is great in big field fights where you can hit multiple targets at the same time. Overall decent commander.
Kusunoki Masashige was a 14th-century samurai who fought for Emperor Go-Daigo in the Genkō War, the attempt to wrest rulership of Japan away from the Kamakura shogunate and is remembered as the ideal of samurai loyalty. His origin has not been validated and it was merely six years between the start of his military campaign in 1331 and his demise in 1336. He received the highest decoration from the Meiji government of Japan in 1880. Legend has it that Emperor Go-Daigo had a dream in which he was sheltering under a camphor tree (“kusunoki”), and that this dream led him to the surname of the warrior who would support him. Kusunoki Masashige is a hero because he “stands in the history of his country as the ideal figure of a warrior, compact of civil and military virtues in a high degree.”
Field fight - Great Kusunoki talent tree build for maximum damage in PVP. Garrison - If you are planning to use Kusunoki as a garrison commander then this is built for you.
Kusunoki is a great commander for new servers and players but with time his performance will go down. There are more and more legendary commanders that can deal 2 times more damage. The problem with archers is that you will get focused a lot by cavalry commanders and you will not have time to deal good amount of damage. If you do not have other option then Kusunoki or Hermann is a way to go.
First skill-removes all negative and control effects. This is a strong skill when you have debuffs like Aethelflaed . On top of that, he has ok nuking damage that can hit 3 targets at the same time.
Second skill-Well this skill only works for garrison and it’s not that good.
Third skill-When this skill is enhanced it will provide you a good amount of defense and attack stats.
Fourth skill-chance to deal additional damage is great. When you add this damage to his first skill you will have a decent nuking commander.
