Best Commander Sculptures & Skill Upgrades Guide
Welcome to our Rise of Kingdoms Commander Sculptures and Skill Upgrades guide. Before we dive into the details, I want to briefly explain what the commander sculptures are for and how they can be used to help your commanders grow stronger.
The commander sculptures usually are used to summon new commanders and to upgrade their skills. They also can be used to upgrade the commander stars but it is not recommended in any situations.
It costs 10 commander sculptures to summon a new commander. Afterwards, the cost to upgrade skills of a commander increases with each rank. Fortunately, getting sculptures is very easy. They can be obtained via Silver Chest and Golden Chest. It is highly recommended that you join a top alliance so that you can reap in the benefits of free silver keys and golden keys from whales.
There are two types of Commander Sculptures:
- Specific Commander Sculpture (i.e Sun Tzu Sculpture, Julius Caesar Sculpture)
- Universal Sculptures (which you can exchange for any specific commander sculpture)

Skill Upgrades with Commander Sculptures
Another feature of using the commander sculptures is upgrading your commanders’ skill with them. With each rank up, the cost of using commander sculptures increases and your power grows in relative. Therefore, it is critical that you max out your commanders’ skills to use them to their fullest potential.
Below is a simple guide that shows you how much commander sculpture is required to rank up a skill point. This guide will be useful if you plan on saving sculpture for a specific commander using the universal sculptures before committing to invest on one of them.
How Specific Commander Sculptures Works
Specific Commander Sculptures just like universal commander sculptures can be used to upgrade skills. However, specific commander sculptures can do one thing that universal commander sculptures can’t and that is summoning the commanders.
These advanced commander sculptures can be obtained from various events and quests at the beginning of the game.
They also can be obtained in Sliver Chests.
These elite commander sculptures can be obtained from various events and from the expeditions.
They also can be obtained in Sliver Chests.
These epic commander sculptures can be obtained from various events and from the expeditions.
They also can be obtained in Sliver Chests and Golden Chests.
These legendary commander sculptures can be obtained from various events and from the expeditions.
Legendary commanders also can be obtained from Special Privilege Chests, VIP Stores, Sliver Chests and Golden Chests.
How to Get More Commander Sculptures
If you are a free player like me who doesn’t want to spend hard-earned money on buying chests, keys and other goodies. There are several ways to get more commander sculptures but these require you to do things like farming, upgrading your buildings and completing the quests. Below is how you can get more commander sculptures as a F2P player:
- Be in a top alliance where the whales are.
- Do quests and complete them.
- Complete expeditions.
- Open daily chests.
- Participate in the events.
But if you are a whale and you want to spend more money on getting these commander sculptures. VIP Shop is the best spot to scourge for specific commanders that you want to summon and skill upgrades into them.
Important Game Tips for Commanders Sculptures
Before you use any of these sculptures to your commanders. I highly recommend holding on to them for a while, most likely two to three weeks at the beginning of your game. This gives you the opportunity to see how the game rolls for you and gives you a good starting point to use your commander sculptures.
I suggest picking one commander you want to work with and stick on power leveling the commander until you max him / her out. Use the Star Trick to expend less Starlight Sculptures so that you can max the commanders out in less time.
A high-level commander is way much more valuable compared to a low level commander. Because they are able to progress further in the Expedition Mode, do more stages via Karauk Ceremony and even will help you win tough battles in both Ian’s Ballads and Ceroli Crisis. This is one of the best ways to grow your total power fast.
Many players spend their commander sculptures immediately without seeing the whole picture first and that’s one of the early game mistakes they make. Sometimes they aren’t so lucky and get stuck with a low-level commander for a while. You can avoid that by taking time to stack your commander sculptures and seeing where to go so that you can max it out in a few weeks.
