ROK Best Commanders Tier List April 2021

Rise of Kingdoms “Commander Tier list” outlines the best commanders per different game attributes. Keep in mind that every single commander is good at something. Depending on your goal and current in-game situation you’d want to invest in a best commander in ROK that has the biggest return on your time investment. Especially if you are a “free to play” type of player

The list you’re about to see was designed purely on endgame outcomes.
Most of them have been tested by players that play on very high-end accounts. However, due to the lack of official data I’d be lying if I said that this list doesn’t include a slight subjective bias from my end.

While some of the ratings are definitely debatable, please keep in mind that the main goal of the list was intended to give you an insight into key attributes and values of every commander.

If you’re interested in finding the best talent tree builds and commander pairings, we encourage you to check our guides on talent tree builds and commander pairings.

Rise of Kingdoms Commander Tier Lists Explained

Horse

Overall rating

Simply put, the overall rating is nothing more than a combination of all ratings. This rating is very important for “free to play” players, because it signals the commanders you should invest your sculptures in to get the most value.

Sword

Rallying Objectives

Rallying Objectives rating highlights the overall ability of a given commander when it comes to rallying flags, forts and Ark of Osiris objectives. The grades have been issued by testing all commanders against top tier defenders.

Flag

Open Field

Open Field will give you an insight on how commanders are performing during open field battles. It’s determined by survivability, damage and the overall contribution when participating in major battles.

Horse

Rallying Cities

Rallying Cities tells you which commanders are best when it comes to attacking enemy cities. This rating was calculated by using the total amount of damage dealt to the cities while a top tier city defending commanders were placed on the city wall.

Sword

Defending Cities

Defending Cities singles out commanders that are the best to defend your city against top tier commanders.I would strongly advise you to avoid getting rallied. It’s simply not worth it at any cost.

Flag

Defending Objectives

Defending Objectives rating will give you an insight into which commanders are best for defending flags, forts and Ark of Osiris objectives. It was measured and computed against the top tier rallying commanders.
