Best Commander Pairings in Rise of Kingdoms

There are a lot of working commander pairings in Rise of Kingdoms.

People have been discussing a lot about the best Primary/Secondary commander pairings in the game since the beginning.

While many of them are extremely great, some others are very terrible pairings, if not saying that they could even give you some negative impacts.

If you are still looking for the best secondary commander for your primary one, you will love this guide!

Note: “Eulji, Osman, Kusunoki, Keira, Boudica, and Scipio” are some of the commanders that are useful up to season 1 of KvK. Afterward it is best to swap to better commanders and I’ve only recommended them as some of the starting civilization offer them as a commander.
