Background Information

Baibars ROK Guide

Baibars was the forth Sultan of Egypt and Syria during the Mamluk dynasty. In September 1260, he routed the invading Mongol army at the Battle of Ain Jalut – this was the first major defeat ever suffered by the Mongols.

During the battle, Baibars implemented a strategy of hit-and-run tactics, which baited the Mongol forces into an devastating ambush. Baibars is renowned both for his victories against the Mongols and Crusaders, and for the administrative reforms he implemented within the sultanate.

An ambitious military leader, Baibars organized an army and restructured the existing navy. He donated heavily to public works, including building roads, mosques, schools, and post offices, as well as irrigation projects to increase the country’s grain production.

Baibars’ reign pushed the Crusader’s out of Mamluk territory once and for all, and began a new age of Mamluk supremacy in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Attila Rise of Kingdoms Guide

One of the best legendary cavalry commanders to pair with is Attila. He is an incredibly strong offensive commander that will do a quick job of weakening your enemies while Baibars pummels them to death with his Sandstorm. Compared to other commanders, Attila increases cavalry attack by 40% and grants immunity against silence.

The Attila + Baibars combo is one of the most deadly commander pairing because this allows you to keep targets slowed. At the same time, Attila will be able to help all the troops under his leadership deal high, sustained damage. Great for both PvP and field battles.

Takeda Shignen

Takeda Shingen Rise of Kingdoms Guide

Another superior cavalry commander to pair with is Takeda Shingen. Just like Attila, he increases cavalry attack by 40% and increases the target’s damage taken by 50% for 4 seconds. This brings to an overall 90% damage boost, which is quite impressive for a cavalry commander pairing. In addition to that, cavalry troops march 30% faster which helps a lot when traveling on the map.

The Takeda Shingen + Baibars combo works great because both will be able to improve upon each other in terms of attack, defense and march speed. Takeda Shingen helps Baibars deal more damage thanks to his superior defense reduction. In exchange, Baibars do even more damage and keep clamping down the targets with no chance of escaping.

Cao Cao

Cao Cao ROK

Cao Cao is a great secondary commander to pair with Baibars, especially if you are running PvE talent build. Thanks to Cao Cao’s skills, the troops deal bonus damage to barbarians. Best of all, every time your troops deal normal attacks, they have a chance to restore rage and heal for a small amount.

This combo focuses on increasing your cavalry’s overall attack and march speed as well too. Cao Cao’s final passive skill will further add a 25% damage bonus to cavalry only at the cost of decreasing defense by 10%. Ideally, this combo is great for PvE purposes.

Mehmed II

Mehmed II ROK

If you are in need of a powerful garrison nuker, Mehmed II is absolutely a godsend to work with Baibars. He is a dedicated garrison nuker and with his skills, this combo maximizes at dealing heavy damage to the city and enemy troops as well.

Mehmed II comes with a passive skill that increases both active skill damage by 20%. Plus, he comes with a skill that increases troop capacity by up to 10%. Both are great if you need to dish out more damage. Pair Baibars with Mehmed II to do some insane damage.
