Hua Mulan was a female warrior from the Northern and Southern dynasties era during the 4th to 6th century of Chinese History. She took her aged father’s place and was conscripted to the army by disguising herself as a man.

After a prolonged and distinguished military service against the nomadic hordes in the northern frontier. She was honored by the emperor by declining a position of high office.

Best Mulan Talent Trees

Before we dive deep in the best Mulan talent builds, I want to point out that this legendary commander excels when playing on the map. Which means she is great at killing barbarians and dealing massive amounts of damage against enemy players as well. When you pair Mulan with another commander, both will level up at a much faster pace. Below are our top 3 best Mulan talent tree builds.

Peacekeeping Talent Tree Build

Mulan Peacekeeping Talent Build Tree

Our recommended Mulan peacekeeping talent tree build focuses on allowing her to deal more damage towards barbarian. Furthermore, her active skill is already a very powerful ability. This talent build extends the amount of rage that Mulan generates, thus allowing her to maintain a high uptime of active skill. That means her army will be able to maintain a high combat effectiveness and shift tide of battle into your favor. Great for slaying a group of barbarians quickly.

PvP Talent Tree Build

Mulan PvP Talent Build Tree

If you prefer to play Mulan against enemy players, then this is the best talent tree build for her. While it is absent of any peacekeeping talent points, Mulan gets combat improvements when using 3 or more troop types. Since Mulan specializes in integration, her army will perform better if she uses 3 or more troop types. At the same time, this talent build allows her to generate rage faster which translates into higher active uptime for better combat effectiveness. Awesome for PvP battles like Sunset Canyon and Ark of Osiris.

Field Talent Tree Build

Mulan Field Talent Build Tree

Lastly, if you prefer to play Mulan on the field map then this talent build is great to have. While this talent build doesn’t emphasize on strengthening Mulan’s role as an offensive combatant. It does serve the purpose as a support role because of her active skill that boosts nearby friendly allies to fight better and harder. At the same time, Mulan can hamper her enemies’ combat effectiveness and make it harder for them to escape. Not to forget to mention that this talent build tree also improves her rage generation, allowing her to use active skill more often.

Star Level & Talent Point Upgrade Priority

Peacekeeping Talent Build Tree:

  • Keep Mulan at 1 ⭐ until you max out her second skill
  • Level Mulan to 3 ⭐ and max out her third skill.

Best Commander Pairs

Mulan is a very special legendary commander. Though, because of her skillset, she makes an ideal secondary commander. In addition to that, she will work well with any commanders who perform well with 3 or more troop types. Below are our recommended commanders to pair with Mulan. Check them out.

Hannibal Barca

Hannibal Barca Rise of Kingdoms Guide

One of our preferred commanders to pair with Mulan is Hannibal Barca. He is already a solid and powerful commander thanks to his high-damaging active skill that applies debuff to multiple targets. If you are looking for a commander to level up quickly while delivering high amounts of damage to a group of barbarians or against enemy players, Hannibal Barca is the perfect choice.

Beside, when you are battling enemy players outside of alliance territory, your army gains 15% increased damage. In addition to that, Hannibal Barca’s leadership grants an extra 10% troops capacity that Mulan stands to benefit a lot thanks to her active skill that increases combat effectiveness based on army strength.

Julius Caesar

Rise of Kingdoms Julius Caesar

Another solid legendary commander to pair with Mulan is Julius Caesar. He grants 15% increased troops capacity Not only does he have the biggest standing army in Rise of Kingdoms, he also comes with a powerful combat skill set that reduces overall damage taken and increases damage against targets.

Mulan will definitely benefit a lot from Julius Caesar’s leadership and powerful buffs. Together, both will make a great field combatant against barbarian strongholds on the map.

Osman I

If you do not have any of these legendary commanders above, then look no further because Osman I is an epic commander that you can easily obtain. Osman I comes with leadership skills that expand troop capacity and increase overall combat effectiveness of the army. For some players who might want to roll Mulan into PvP battles, Osman I is the best pick.

Here’s why Osman I is capable of delivering a massive amount of damage towards a single target. This makes him a great commander for plucking dangerous enemy commanders with ease. Since Mulan is able to provide stats boost and improves nearby friendly commanders, she will further increase Osman I’s combat effectiveness.


Best Aethelflaed Commander ROK Guide

Alternatively, if you want to plow through a group of barbarians quickly and level up as fast as you want to. Aethelflaed is absolutely bliss. Her active skill can pull multiple barbarians and group them down at the same time. She is commonly used for barbarian-chaining method farming which saves your action points while dragging Aethelflaed across the map to tag barbarian armies along.

Mulan is a peacekeeping commander and she will benefit from Aethelflaed as the primary commander. On the other hand, Aethelflaed stands to benefit from a 40% damage boost from Mulan’s passive skill set. Absolutely awesome commander combination.
