Ramesses II

Artemisia I and Ramesses II are the 2 commanders, which are introduced in Rise of Kingdoms with the latest update called Spring Has Sprung.

First thought? Being a versatile commander is enough for you to invest in him. Just like Alexander the Great before for example!.

The Poem of PentaurIncreases archery units’ attack while on the map.

King of KingsEnhanced: Ceremony of Karnak


  • Damage Factor 800 → 1000
  • Defense Reduction: 25% → 30%
  • Bonus: Targets cannot receive any healing in 2 seconds.

  • Ceremony of Karnak: Defense reduction of 25% for two turns is massive because we have high attack damage and the talent tree that we have is also going to amplify the skill damage.
  • The Poem of Pentaur: We also have an additional increasing the attack of the archer units by 40% while on the map, which is quite a lot!
  • Army of Amun: This is a passive skill meaning that you have to rely on the RNG a lot. If you are lucky enough then this skill is going to last for 3 seconds and you’re going to benefit a lot.
  • Nefertari’s Companionship: We pretty much have an extra all attack damage defense bonus here.
  • King of Kings: There are a lot of players that use Khan and Cao Cao, Martel, Constantine out there. This is a great counter to them. 2000 damage in 2 seconds is also very deadly.

Ramses is a very tanky commander just by looking at the skills. Ramses is an archer commander and normally archers are usually pretty soft. What I see here with Ramses is that he is a very tanky commander.

Ramesses II Talent Tree

Ramesses II Talent Tree

 Talent Tree created via roktalents

Using this build, we have:

  • March Speed + 24%
  • Attack + 15%
  • Defense + 3.5%
  • Health + 11.5%

The defense is quite low for Ramesses II with this talent tree but with the skills of him, you can get some extra defense bonus. The marching speed is 24% which is going to help you on the battlefield when you are moving around and will not be chased down with ease by any opponent.

Main Talents:

Razor Sharp grants 9 rages after launching a normal attack.

Fight to the Death: Increasing all damage meaning including your skill damage, your normal attack, your counter-attack by 6%.

You’re also going to increase all damage taken by 3%. We have another additional 15% attack from this Ramesses II talent build.

We also have counter-attack damage increased by 1.5% from Unyielding and also we have the Armored Joints which reduces all damage taken by 1.5% so pretty much we’re already cutting this on half. Technically we are only taking more 1.5% damage.

effortless Effortless: All damage, including the skills, will be amplified by 2.5% every 10s at a maximum of 10%. Imagine that if you have a secondary like YSG, you will gain tons of benefits.

The reason why we built it with a high attack because the skills of Ramesses are also complementing high attack, meaning we are definitely going to eliminate our opponents a lot faster.

Best Commanders Paring for Ramesses II

Yi Seong-Gye

Yi Seong-Gye

YSG s one of those archers that if you invest on him you can pretty much use him for anything

He increases the damage of archers by 100%, that’s a lot! Combining with Ramesses’s attack, this is something really deadly.

We also have the rage restoration by 100 and then we have a 50% skill damage bonus from the 4th skill.

Imagine the power of this combo with combining all of the YSG skills with the talent tree we have built above.

Edward of Woodstock

Edward of Woodstock

Edward of Woodstock might be slightly obsolete if Ramsay is your new primary commander, but he is still very viable at the secondary slot.

Edward of Woodstock has buff for your Archer health by 30%. It’s also going to give you skill damage bonus of 25% and damage to infantry by 5%. The 4th skill increases the attack bonus by 40% when there’s 70% strength and decreases defense of the enemies. This is going to complement even better with Ramesses.

In addition, he increases the normal attack and counter-attack by 50% for two seconds, helping Ramesses II take down the opponents like crazy.



You have an additional chance to gain 100 rage so you can cast Ramsey’s first skill more frequently.

He has a 10% attack bonus and also a marching speed bonus for Archers.

If you are getting swarm, you have a higher chance of increasing your troop attack bonus to an additional 40% (from the Army of Amun skill) which is too high.
