Pelagius is the best Epic cavalry epic commander in Rise of Kingdoms. You will use him all the time. With the best talent tree build, he will be insanely good for field battles. Pelagius can be used also for defending structures in the early stage of ROK.
Pelagius was a Visigothic nobleman who founded the Kingdom of Asturias, ruling it from 718 until his death in 737. Through his victory at the Battle of Covadonga, he is credited with beginning the Reconquista, the Christian reconquest of the Iberian peninsula from the Moors. He established an independent Christian state in opposition to Moorish hegemony. The chief sources for Pelagius’s life and career are two Latin chronicles written in the late ninth century in the kingdom he founded. The former is the Chronica Albeldensia, written at Albelda towards 881, and the latter is Chronicle of Alfonso III, which was revised in the early century.
Now you can see that Pelagius is not a nuking commander. When you compare him to G.Khan you will see how Pelagius is underpowered.
In my opinion, Pelagius is supporting cavalry commander. He will provide stats and healing to his pairs. Because Pelagius does not have insane nuke you must pair him with someone who will bring that nuke.
First skill-Well this skill is ok. The amount of damage on first skill is not that great when you go against powerful legendary commander like G.Khan but this damage will be ok on new servers.
Second skill-Nice amount of stats and when you get Pelagius on max skills, this skill will be enhanced and it will give you a 15% attack and 15% defense.
Third skill-a great skill for new players who do not have a good garrison commander so you can use Plegius because of this skill.
Fourth skill-10% chance to heal units. This is nice to have.
Like you can pair him with Minamoto, G.khan or Cao Cao. They will all work great with Pelagius. In short, Pelagius will provide stats and healing and his pair will provide nice nuke damage.
If you do not have any legendary nuking commander then you can pair Pelagius with Baibars or Osman. They are nice epic nuking commanders.
