Best Guan Yu Builds (Talent Tree) in Rise of Kingdoms

Guan Yu is not only a new commander introduced in the beginning of 2020, it’s also a must-have commander with a very nice silence skill that will bring you a lot of joy.

In this guide I want to show you some talent builds that work very well with him.

Guan Yu Role

Guan Yu is an insane commander perfect for rallying objectives and cities as well as in the open field. His first skill will not only deal area damage, it will also silence up to 3 targets.

They will be able to generate rage but they can’t use their skills for 3 seconds. You might think this is not powerful but as they are sitting at max rage and don’t use their skill, Guan Yu will prevent them to start generating rage again so you will slow down the amount of rage they can generate.

Best Guan Yu Builds

Now let’s just plain and simple jump into the talent builds for Guan Yu.

Build with RoKTalent Builder

First of all you want to go in the Skill Tree and unlock Rejuvenate for the obvious reason that Guan Yu’s versatility is based on his ability to get his silence active and that needs extra rage.

In the Infantry Tree it’s time to get Hold The Line, which doesn’t sound that strong on plain paper but once you get swarmed (and I can promise you that you will), this will massively reduce the damage that you’re taking.

Strong of Body is optional on the path to Hold The Line and you should still get it after unlocking Hold The Line because it’s plain and simple extra health for your troops led by Guan Yu.

Now you can work your way up to max out the Infantry Tree, depending on how far you have Guan Yu leveld up.

Rally Build

Here’s an alternative rally build that you can also use very well:

Build with RoKTalent Builder

In this rally build you will also get into the Skill Tree first to unlock Rejuvenate, it’s the most useful skill and you want to get that extra rage as fast as possible. From here do everything you can to go over to Feral Nature which will basically give you 10 rage with every attack statistically so also worth it without any doubt.

Once you have that done you will go over to the Infantry Tree where you will make your way stright towards Strong of Body to get that nice extra health for your troops which will be very useful in many situations.

No it’s time to get Entrenched in the Conquering Tree which is working also very well and not only buff all damage, it will also reduce all damage you take. Moment of Triumph is also a nice talent that you can pick up along the way and it will buff your output at least in the beginning of a battle.
