Ragnar Lodbrok is a legendary commander in Rise Of Kingdoms that is specialized in attacking and conquering cities and he is great for PVP. Ragnar Lodbrok’s talent tree is focused on attacking cities.
Ragnar Lodbrok is said to have been king of the Vikings for much of the 9th century CE. Legends indicate that he was a son of the mythical Sigurd Ring, king of Sweden. According to ancient histories of northern Europe, he ruled much of Sweden and Denmark, and would frequently lead raids on the British Isles and the Holy Roman Empire.
The raids of many chieftains with the name Ragnar or similar around this time are attributed to Lodbrok, the most famous being the Sack of Paris in 845. He led 120 longboats carrying thousands of men straight up the Seine and into Paris. They then plundered the A city with little resistance, leaving only once Charles the Bald gave them 2,570 kg of gold and silver as ransom.
While Ragnar’s existence is sometimes debated, there is no denying the existence of the great Viking leaders of the following generation who are said to be sons of Ragnar, including Björn Ironside, Ivar the Boneless, and Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye, among others.
Ragnar Lodbrok Guide
Ragnar Lodbrok is a great commander but still, Attila is stronger than him and most of the pro-ROK players do not use him. The only usage that you will find for him is for attacking enemy cities. That is why Atilla is still a better choice. With Attila, you can rally cities and objectives in KVK and AOO.
Great thing is that Ragnar Lodbrok can use any type of troops so you can pair him with any commander.
Now is he worth investment. In my opinion, it is not if you are free to play player, Ragnar Lodbrok is for pay to win player. You have a lot of other legendary commanders that are better.
Ragnar Lodbrok needs more testing from top accounts in Rise Of Kingdoms. Also, a great thing about Ragnar Lodbrok is that he is a normal attack commander without skills. So it will be interesting to see how he will perform.
