Jan Zizka is a legendary cavalry commander in Rise of Kingdoms with cavalry, garrison, and skill talent tree. Jan Zizka is one of the strongest commanders when it comes to defending objectives in KVK and AOO but when it comes to rallying and fighting in the open field he will underperform. The majority of his skills are focused on garrison so there is no point in using him in open-field fighting. 

Should you invest in the Jan Zizka?

Jan Zizka is an extremely powerful garrison commander that is top tier. Is worth getting him you should take a few factors into consideration like do you garrison buildings during KVK and AOO, are you free to play or pay to win, are you focusing on cavalry commanders, etc. 

So only invest in Jan Zizka if you are a player who is defending objectives in KVK and AOO. There is no point investing in Jan Zizka if you are planning to use him for field fighting, there are much better commanders for that. Also if you are planning to get him then you must get his best pairing and that is Jadwiga. Now it is up to you but overall if you are free to play we recommend you not to invest in him because most of the time play to win players are defending objectives in Rise Of Kingdoms.

Jan Zizka Talent Tree Build

When it comes to Jan Zizka talent tree you want to get range, counter damage, defense, and damage reduction. So this is the best talent tree build that you can use for garrisoning objectives.

Jan Zizka Pairings

There are not a lot of pairings that you can do with Jan Zizka because in Rise Of Kingdoms there is a small number of cavalry commanders that are good for garrisoning. By far the best pairing that you can do is Jan and Jadwiga. If you do not have her then you can pair him with any other cavalry commander that is extremely powerful. 

Jadwiga iconJadwiga: Jadwiga and Jan Zizka are the best pairings for cavalry in Rise Of Kingdoms. They have extremely good synergy with stats, boosting normal attack damage, nuke damage, and rage generation. If this pairing is garrisoning objectives, you will have a hard time destroying them because they are extremely powerful together. In this pairing, you will use Jan as the primary commander because the Jadwiga talent tree is not that great.
