There is a problem with El Cid.

If you want to disable the enemies, prevent them from casting the active skill in 1 second, you need to have the active skill ‘Famous Warrior’ casted first.

If El Cid cannot cast the skill first, the only thing that you can get benefit is the direct damage factor and the ability to disable the enemy normal attacks in 1 second.

Talent Tree

If you have El Cid as your Primary Commander, you will need the Burning Blood, Rejuvenate and Feral Nature.

And when you are going to the Archer path, make sure you have Razor Sharp. What this does is that you are in the rapid rage recover system RRR. Do your best to get this RRR system so you can maximize your active skill.

Scipio Africanus, Charles Martel and Richard I.

This is because when you disable the enemy attack, you will not get the counter attack any way so there is not point to matching El Cid with commanders that have counterattack buffs..
