Best Eulji Mundeok Talent Trees

In this section, we will talk about the best talent builds for Eulji Mundeok. There are three viable talent builds to choose from. Although, it depends on your preferred gameplay and current strategy, one of these talent builds might be particularly appealing to you. However, you can always switch to a different talent build at any given time. Below is a list of top 3 best talent builds for Eulji Mundeok:

Garrison Talent Tree Build

Eulji Mundeok Garrison Talent Tree Build

The garrison talent built for this epic commander is really good. Basically, it is one of the best builds that lets Eulji Mundeok generate rage at neck-breaking speed. Which lets you maintain 30% defense reduction debuff on the enemy and to maximize direct damage factor for maximal carnage while keeping your city scot-free.

PvP Talent Tree Build

Eulji Mundeok PVP Talent Tree Build

Don’t get me wrong, Eulji Mundeok is great for PvP battles due to his strong attack and defense bonuses toward infantry. If you roll pure infantry under his leadership, he makes a great counter for any potential cavalry rushes. On top of that, he can generate rage quite fast enough to apply 30% defense reduction which makes quick work out of enemy forces.

Field Talent Tree Build

Eulji Mundeok Field Talent Tree Build

If you prefer Eulji Mundeok to dish out higher sustained damage and take more damage at the cost of not being able to cast active skill sometimes. This talent build is ideal because when he is still building rage, he will have a chance to trigger a 10% damage bonus that helps him deal additional blows to the targets. When used in combination with active skill, that’s a 40% bonus which plays a big difference in terms of damage output.

Blitz Talent Tree Build

Eulji Mundeok Blitz Talent Tree Build

The Eulji Mundeok blitz talent tree is a new build that focuses on mobility and attack. Instead of silencing himself for a few seconds, he can maintain high uptime by reducing the enemy’s defense up to 40% while dishing out a series of heavy blows. In addition to that, some of the talent points are invested in improving infantry march speed so that Eulji Mundeok will have at least some mobility to mobilize around the map with relative ease.

Since Eulji Mundeok focuses on infantry build and specializes in dealing direct damage and reducing the enemy’s defense. You want to find a commander that will further amplify the effects and cover his weakness.

Charles Martel

Rise of Kingdoms Charles Martel

One of the best commanders to pair with Eulji Mundeok right now is Charles Martel. He is an incredible tank commander that can withstand some of the harshest blows with ease. Not just only that, he comes with ton of powerful skills which is designed to mitigate incoming attacks at the same time improving your infantry troops’ overall combat effectiveness.

Plus, he is an excellent commander for countering incoming attacks — which pairs well with Eulji Mundeok. We highly recommend this commander pairing if you plan to defend your city with Eulji.

Richard I

Rise of Kingdoms Richard I

If you are looking to strengthen your city protection against enemy commanders, Richard I is one of the best commanders to handle big strikes. He is by far one of the most tanky commanders thanks to big damage reduction and 15% infantry defense bonus. His active skill is also by far one of the best abilities in Rise of Kingdoms. In fact, his skill reduces up to 5 targets’ attack by 30%.

This allows Richard I to effectively soak incoming attacks as he heals himself. Eulji Mundeok will be able to benefit from this because it will increase his survivability. Richard I also can take advantage of the 100% damage bonus that Eulji has to offer. A perfect combo.


Best Aethelflaed Commander ROK Guide

Aethelflaed is one of the best commanders to pair for killing barbarians and to level up quickly. Due to her flexible leadership style, she will have no problem fitting with Eulji Mundeok’s pure infantry build. Plus Aethelflaed comes with a powerful ability that deals 20% bonus damage to targets who are slowed.

If you don’t have her, then Lohar is a good alternative option to roll with for playing the barbarian hunter role. You also can do that with Boudica if you somehow don’t have the first two commanders above.

Julius Caesar

Rise of Kingdoms Julius Caesar

When you pair Julius Caesar with Eulji Mundeok, you get increased troop capacity, powerful buffs that bolster your troops’ defense and attack… at the same time, reducing enemy troops’ attack and defense. Which is truly a game changer.

Plus, this combo transforms into a serious killing machine thanks to Eulji Mundeok’s powerful direct damage factor and 30% defense reduction. Julius Caesar is like Aethelflaed due to his flexible leadership style which will have no problem rolling pure infantry build.

If you don’t have him, then roll with Scipio Africanus.

Sun Tzu

Rise of Kingdoms Sun Tzu Preview

For those who want to be able to cover each other’s weaknesses, the Sun Tzu and Eulji Mundeok is the ultimate combo. Basically, both can deal direct damage and splash damage which is an excellent pair for dealing with multiple targets.

Not to forget to mention that Sun Tzu comes with passive skill which increases active skill damage by 20% that goes on the top of Eulji Mundeok’s already strong direct damage factor. Sun Tzu also further amplifies the infantry bonuses, adding health and further damage reduction.
