Joan of Arc… many thing “oh yeah, just another gathering commander”, right? Wrong!
Joan of Arc can do a lot of nice things with her support tree as well and there are more than one purpose – gathering – that you can do with her. And that’s exactly what we’re looking at here with the talent builds I have for you.
Joan of Arc Role
Of course, Joan of Arc is a sweet gathering commander and I have a build here that you should use for gathering with her, no question about that.
But, and that’s what most players are missing out when they have Joan of Arc, is that she is also doing quite well on the open field in general with a nice rage generation and awesome march speed you can start slaying with her as well, especiall as she doesn’t prefer any kind of troops and you can take a mixed army with her.
Joan of Arc Builds
So, I have two builds here for you – one is of course the gathering build and the other one is a support build to use on the open field offensively (and not gathering resource tiles).
So, this is the gathering build that I would recommend to anyone asking for such a build for Joan of Arc:
This build basically takes all the resource gathering talents in the Gathering Tree and then picks up all the extra march speed talents in the Support Tree and the Integration Tree that you can get afterward.
When talking about the order how to spend the points (if you haven’t maxed out Joan of Arc yet), I’d go down the gathering tree first and then go into the other trees for the extra march speed.
The reason why I would do that is that you probably are not gathering non-stop and when gathering takes some extra minutes you’ll be okay with that and can adapt – but bringing home more resources is a direct benefit that you will take advantage of right away. For that reason, first go down the gathering tree and then take the march speed in the other trees.
Open Field Build
But now let’s get to the more interesting build in the open field with Joan of Arc and this is it:
March speed is almost everything in the open field, so your very first talent point should go into the Gathering Tree to pick up that cheap extra march speed – this is the only talent point you’ll be feeding into the Gathering Tree.
After that go into the Support Tree and go after Rejuvenate first. This will give you 150 rage each time you use Joan of Arc’s skill so after the first time it will take less time until she can use that skill again and you will get some nice rage engine rolling with her.
I can only tell you, this will get her skill popping from something like 10 seconds for the first time to like 5-6 seconds after that so you will see that firing like a machine gun.
Next go over to get Counterattack, this will be a nice boost after each healing and you will see that popping a lot. From here max out the Support Tree and see how you can spend your leftover points.
In the Integration Tree you will go after charge first and the march Speed to get some nice extra boost in march speed.
