Sun Tzu’s Skills
Art of War
|Active||Deals direct damage to a maximum of 3 targets in a fan-shaped area, and deals additional damage to these targets on the next turn. Sun Tzu gains additional rage for each target hit by his skills.||Direct Damage Factor:|
150 / 210 / 270 / 360 / 450
Additional Damage Factor:
50 / 70 / 90 / 120 / 150
10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50
He does 600 damage in total. He also can grant up to 150 rage at once which is extremely awesome.
Regenerating Rage quickly is a must for all nuker, or skill damaged commanders like Sun Tzu, Minamoto, YSG, etc. You will be more effective on the battlefield, dealing more damage.
The expertise increases the direct damage of the first skill to 800 and up to 5 targets. Extra damage factor which gets bumped up to 200.
You can also get 250 Rage in total. Which is 1/4 of your rage bar, pretty awesome?
This skill is enough to make him one of the best Epic commanders in the game so far.
Philosophy of War
|Passive||Reduces damage taken by the garrison when this commander is serving as the garrison commander.||Garrison Troops Damage Reduction:|
1% / 2% / 3% / 4% / 5%
That’s pretty solid skill but it’s not crazy.
|Passive||Increases troop damage reduction; increases infantry unit health.||Damage Taken Reduced By:|
4% / 5% / 6% / 8% / 10%
Infantry Health Bonus:
4% / 5% / 6% / 8% / 10%
This skill usually gets overlooked because it looks not really good but it’s actually very unique! It’s very well-suited for PvP.
The damage taken reduced is not troop-specific, regardless of your army type, you’ll always get that 10% damage reduction. That’s a pretty big deal.
For Infantry units, it’s even more effective because infantry is going to even tankier, getting 2 buffs at once.
|Passive||Increases active skill damage.||Skill Damage Bonus:|
5% / 8% / 11% / 15% / 20%
Remember that this skill applies not only to Sun Tzu but also to the secondary commander. You can’t go wrong with that any time.
You want to couple him with nukers. Anybody that does not have the direct skill damage on their primary skill won’t get this perk.
Book of Aeons
|Expertise||Deals direct damage (Damage Factor 800) to a maximum of 5 targets in a fan-shaped area, and deals additional damage (Damage Factor 200) to these targets on the next turn. Sun Tzu gains an additional 50 rage for each target hit by this skill.|
Sun Tzu Talent Tree
This Sun Tzu talent tree is the golden standard one for both PvP & PvE purposes. Regardless of what you’re doing, you will want to focus on a full infantry army eventually.
- If possible, use Richard or Charles as your secondary commander. You’re not gonna kill things as fast but you will get tons of HP and cannot die easily unless you get swarmed by 10+ armies. Even if they have only the first skill maxed, it’s more than enough to couple them up. They are devastating.
- Hanibal Barca: He helps your army much tankier and also boosts your troop count so we’re, providing a punching bag full of infantry, which is super tanky, having AoE, debuffing and high direct damaging troops. Julius Caesar is also a great placement for Hannibal If you don’t have him.
- Scipio is a great F2P option here. You will some healing factors, AoE damage counter-attack tackiness, troop capacity buffs. All of these are always must-have for Infantry armies.
- Frederick is an interesting option. He’s got the additional damage factor, healing factors, extra troops and possible to be obtained by free to play players eventually.
