Garrison Build

Constantine I Garrison Build

Defending structures, cities or garrison is not the task of any commander, it takes a strong capacity of skills and talents, Constantine is one of the commanders dedicated to this task in Rise of Kingdoms.

Impasse will be Constantine’s main skill if we garrison structures. The damage bonus of this skill to our defense is incredible, with a great combined effectiveness of skills, talents and commanders we will be able to cause many losses to our enemies in any structure that we defend.

In this build, we will not distribute all the talents to the Garrison tree for a simple reason, Constantine’s roll in a structure is better than Secondary Commander, being Primary he would need strong talents like “Defense” which improve the resistance of his units, without However, in the case of Constantine, the talents of “Support” are incredible working from a safe defense and it is worth prioritizing other important aspects within these talents, in this way it works as a primary as well and yields a lot, then we will explain its essence:

Garrison Talents

  • Impenetrable Fortifications Impenetrable Fortifications: When this commander is serving as garrison commander, damage taken by the garrison from the attacking army is reduced by 6%.

  • Elixir Elixir: Enhances healing effects received by troops by 9%. Being a commander of the garrison this talent will increase the healing of your skill “Cross of the Divine” by 9%, the garrison have hundreds of millions of troops, which this 9% of healing can exceed even entire armies of a single commander. It is a considerable increase if we defend cities or structures.
  • Hasty Departure Hasty Departure: When troops led by this commander depart from a structure. Increases march speed by 60% for the next 10 seconds. If we defend any structure this talent will not be used, however, it is mandatory to develop it to continue towards “Rejuvenate”.
  • burning blood Burning Blood: Normal attacks grant an additional 9 rage. Each attack of Constantine will increase the regeneration of Rage by 9, which will facilitate the launch of his ability during battles.
  • Emergency Protection Emergency Protection: When troops led by this commander take skill damage, there is a 50% chance that they will gain an additional 15% skill damage reduction for the next 3 seconds. Every 2 attacks we can count on this probability, which is excellent, if we add: “Emergency Protection” + Loose Formation “+” Impregnable “= Reduces skill damage by 41%. Awesome!
  • Rejuvenate Rejuvenate: Instantly restores 150 rage whenever a skill is used. A strong rage restoration that will allow us to launch our active skill much faster.

Infantry Talents

  • Iron Spear Iron Spear: Infantry units led by this commander deal an additional 9% damage to cavalry units. When defending structures of any type, the largest number of enemy rallies can be from cavalry units thanks to their high skill damage and resistance on commanders like Attila / Takeda, this talent will be vital for these attacks.

  • Strong of Body Strong Body: Increases health of infantry units by 6%. The infantry the garrison will become much more resistant.

These talents give us a garrison defender Constantine, very resistant to skill damage mainly and with high statistics in his troops, becoming a powerful commander, strong and tenacious, a mix between defense, health, healing factor, attack and damage reduction per skill it’s all we need at Constantine and we have that to defend at whatever price is necessary.

It is highly advisable to use Constantine to defend our city or any structure of our alliance, so this last build will be the most important for its way of playing.
