You can build Sun Tzu talent tree for Field PVP battles or a garrison in ROK. If you will not use him for defending than there is no point in building Sun Tzu for a garrison. I would go with more useful PVP build especially if you are fighting a lot. Use some other commander for the garrison.
Sun Tzu talent tree build for field battles is great because it will provide you a great amount of stats especially health that is good against swarming. This build will give you great rage generation which is required so Sun Tzu can use skills more often.

Sun Tzu is by far the best epic commander in Rise of Kingdoms and he will stay like that for a long time. Sun Tzu is rage generating machine. His main skill Art of War can hit 5 targets at the same time. For every unit that he hits with art of war, he will receive 50 rage points. With the right talent tree, he will generate so much rage in a short period of time.
Not only that he will receive bonus rage, but his fourth skill will also increase active damage by 20%.One more bonus is that he will increase active damage to his pair. It does not matter if Sun Tzu is primary or secondary he will still increase the damage of his pair. When you add his first and fourth skill you will have a machine that will do an insane amount of damage.
Sun Tzu is a tank commander also, his third skill that will increase health and reduce the damage that you will receive and he is an infantry commander.
He is a great commander for an anti swarm of city and other buildings.
Because of his good skills, you can use him almost everywhere all the time. You can defend building and city, for big field fighting he is insanely good. The only problem is that he is not so great for rallying city and building because he needs 5 targets to get maximum damage and rage production.
You can use Sun Tzu for farming barbarians. Learn how to pull more than one barbarian at the same time so you spend fewer action points. For this, you will need some practice but it’s not hard to learn.
Every day people are getting better in fighting and they know how strong Sun Tzu can be. So you will get focused a lot. You want to send Sun Tzu as the last commander and try to guard him so he can do his magic. The worst thing that you can do is to go 1vs1. Try to avoid that. For defending the building avoid using Sun Tzu if there is a rally, but if a building is attacked by 3 or more sets of troops then definitely use Sun Tzu. Sun Tzu needs rage and hitting 1 target will not provide you nice rage generation.
Sun Tzu can be pairs almost with any commander in ROK because of his great skills and rage generation. The best pairs For Sun Tzu are Charles Martel, Guan Yu, Yi Seong-Gye, and Scipio.
Great commanders for Sun Tzu. He provides a good amount of tank stats and skills. You will not do an insane amount of damage instantly but you will be able to survive more. Great if you are getting focused a lot in field fighting.
Great commander for Sun Tzu but the problem is that a lot of people do not have him. They have great skill synergy so you can not go wrong with this pair. It's important that you use Sun Tzu as a secondary commander in this pair.
Well this is not a bad option for free to play players. Scipio will provide some healing and increased army capacity. With more army capacity your damage will be higher.
Best pair for Sun Tzu. Two best AOE damage commanders in the Rise Of Kingdoms . You will be able to do so much damage in big fights. The only problem with this duo is that it can die so fast. So you must be careful during field fighting.
