Leveling commanders in Rise Of Kingdoms is a long process but it’s not hard. The leveling commander will unlock the skill tree and skills. You can level up commanders by using tome of knowledge, killing barbarians, forts, guardians and with events.
The best way to level up your commanders xp fast
The way of leveling your commander xp depends on what rewards do you want.
Most important thing is to optimize your action points. They are the main key to level commanders fast.
Leveling commander with destroying forts is by far the fastest way to level up your commander. For this, you want to be in high activity alliance and a bonus is that with every fort destroyed you have a chance to receive 50 action points back.
For level 5 fort you will get 46k of experience and other rewards like books of covenant.
Leveling commander with forts is great for people who do not have castle n max level. Because the castle is the hardest building to upgrade in Rise of kingdoms and with destroying forts you will get books of covenant.
Now, this is great if you do not have time to destroy the commander or you do not have a strong commander to destroy barbarians forts.
By far the best commanders that you want to use as primary commanders are Lohar and Aethelflaed. They will increase your experience gain to commanders by 35%. You must have them as main commanders because of talent that will increase damage to barbarians and reduce the cost of action points that is needed to attack barbarians.
If you can get Aethelflaed on a max level that would be great because she haves AOE damage that will help you to attack more barbarians at the same time with AOE.
One of the great bonuses with leveling up commander with barbarians is gems drop and training speedups.
The best time to level up your commander xp with barbarians is during KVK time. Barbarians are a higher level and you will get more experience and gems.
If you are planning to level up your ROK commanders with barbarians try to find a rune that will increase your experience gain.
Best guardians that you can kill are in zone 3 of the map and in the KVK. For killing guardians, you do not need action points.
But before killing guardians you want to have all peacekeeping commanders that will increase your commander experience gain and you want to find rune that will increase that more.
The bonus for killing guardians is that you have a chance to get blueprints for gear.
Rise of kingdoms has a lot of events that will give you Tome of Knowledge. Events are great to boost your leveling. So activity is key. There will not give you much but every XP is important.
Try to do every event that is in the game not only for the experience that you will get but you will get other nice rewards.
Leveling boost that will help you is
Have a high VIP level for more action points recovery.
This all will make your leveling speed much faster. Be active and you will level up any commander.
