Best Immortal Pairings for El Cid
If you are a free-to-play player, obtaining this epic immortal will be slightly tricky since your only option is to collect fragments through the Daily Deals and Market.
However, El Cid is an amazing epic to have on the team due to his active skill multiple-use: dealing damage, reducing damage taken, and providing debuff support, which makes him one of the best defensive lightning immortal to get.
So, if you are looking to build the best lightning immortal team in the Infinity Kingdom with El Cid, here’s our recommended immortals to pair with:
He is of the best lightning immortals with excellent crowd control skills.
Richard I is very capable of dealing damage and controlling your enemy targets through his active skill that stuns them.
When the enemy targets are stunned, they cannot fight back nor regenerate energy.
That allows your immortal team to focus on dealing damage and enables you to determine the perfect time to activate El Cid’s active skill to reduce damage taken.
Through El Cid and Richard I, you will reduce incoming damage significantly and maximize outgoing damage.
Very good for holding the frontline with ease.
If you need powerful ranged support, you will want to pair Genghis Khan with El Cid.
He is a powerful physical attacker that can deliver a ranged attack to all enemy targets through his active skill: Arrow Storm.
His active skill deals massive damage to all enemy targets and blocks them from self-healing.
That means he can easily cripple certain immortals like Frederick I, Spartacus, and the fire immortal teams that rely on self-healing.
That makes Genghis Khan a vital lightning immortal to have on the team as it ensures your enemy team goes down quickly.
He is an excellent immortal to support El Cid on the frontline.
Do not underestimate Yi Seong-Gye. For a ranged physical attacker, he is fantastic support lightning immortal to have on the team that will benefit El Cid greatly.
Yi Seong-Gye can take advantage of his active skill to transfer 20% of two enemy targets’ physical/magical attack and defense to him.
That weakens two random enemy targets for a few seconds, exposing them to damage and indirectly supporting your frontline immortals.
The El Cid + Yi Seong-Gye go well together.
We highly recommend this immortal pairing if you want to maximize your overall attack and defense capability.
Alternatively, if you do not have Richard I yet, your next best physical attacker to pair with on the frontline is William Wallace.
He is another lightning immortal with a decent active skill that does a moderate amount of damage to the enemies directly ahead of him.
In addition to that, the affected targets are silenced and cannot generate energy for the next 6 seconds.
That means your immortals can focus on dealing damage without any interruptions from your enemy targets.
William Wallace is also super easy and fast to level up, which means he will grow in power along with El Cid.
Overall a decent elite immortal to have on the team as an alternative.
