The Lohar Peacekeeping build is a godsend for barbarian farming. This talent build increases the healing effect, experience gain, as well as improved rage generation for more active skill usage and less action point to initiate attacks on neutral units. Not to forget to mention that each time you win a battle against neutral unit, you will get a few resource boxes as a bonus which is really nice perk. Great for chain-farming barbarians too!

Best Commander Pairs

Lohar is a great commander and his popularity for farming neutral units makes him an ideal choice to pair with other commanders on the offense. His support ability helps provide strong field control and eliminating your enemies’ grip on the victories. Below is a list of best commanders to pair with Lohar.

Moctezuma I

Moctezuma I Commander Rise of Kingdoms

Lohar is a good commander to farm barbarians and destroying the camps. But you can take this to a whole new level with Moctezuma I, who is a legendary commander with an awesome skill set. He is one of the best barbarian commanders in Rise of Kingdoms right now. If you are looking for ways to immensely increase your attack output so that it becomes easy to farm barbarians, get Moctezuma I.

This legendary commander brings an additional 20% damage bonus to all troops. Plus he has one of the most powerful active skill that does a lot of damage — especially when countering enemy targets’ active skill with heavy damage. The Moctezuma I + Lohar commander pairing also means the troops will gain 10% march speed bonus. Which helps a lot when moving on the map or when you want to mobilize quickly.


Best Aethelflaed Commander ROK Guide

One of the best commander to pair with is Aethelflaed. In this pair, Aethelflaed takes the role as primary commander due to her active skill dealing damage against multiple targets. This duo combo is great for chain-farming barbarians quickly and effectively.

In addition to that, Lohar provides improved survivability through healing and does extra damage. If you are looking for a way to level your commanders up quickly, this pair will make the whole leveling phase absolutely breeze.


Belisarius Commander ROK

Another great epic commander that is within your horizon is Belisarius. He deals extra damage towards barbarians and excels at mobilizing the troops on the map. Which means he can reach the targets pretty darn fast in just a few seconds compared to other commanders.

Whether you are looking for a solid duo to finish off the barbarians, you need speed to handle barbarians — especially during the events. Belisarius is the best commander that gives you the ability to support your friendly alliance members whenever they need help and to do extra damage.

Julius Caesar

Rise of Kingdoms Julius Caesar

Undoubtedly, Julius Caesar is the best secondary commander to pair with Lohar. Both commanders will be able to benefit each other from Julius’ strong leadership and damaging abilities. The expanded troop capacity means Lohar can bring more troops and that will help him clear high-level barbarians with ease.

Furthermore, Julius Caesar comes with serious punches that improves all armies — which is incredible useful because Lohar excels the role with more than three type of armies. The bonus he gets helps his troops deal more damage and have higher defense value.

If you don’t have Julius Caesar in your commander deck, Scipio Africanus is a good choice to pair with since both have the same skill tree.

Sun Tzu

Rise of Kingdoms Sun Tzu Preview

If you need to maximize your field control on the kingdom map, Sun Tzu is the best secondary commander to pair with. This commander is relatively easy to obtain which can be replaced by better commander like Charles Martel for speed.

Sun Tzu’s skills lets you focus on maximizing the damage with an impressive array of AOE damage. Which makes it easy for Lohar to handle multiple forces at the front while dishing out heavy damage. When you max out Lohar with Field Build, switch to Charles Martel so you can take advantage of speed bonus.


Rise of Kingdoms Constance Preview

And finally, if you prefer to have a gathering commander as your secondary pair. That’s fine too. In this case, Constance is a good choice because of her skills and improved resource load means Lohar can deal protect the gathering commanders.

This pair is good in particular when it comes to farming resources and battling barbarians as well player’s garrisons. As you progress game, opt to switch out for a better gathering commander like Joan of Arc or Cleopatra VII.
