Flavius Aetius is a new legendary infantry commander with an additional garrison and skill talent tree that is coming to Rise of Kingdoms. Flavius Aetius is a great commander that will be used a lot in KVK for defending objectives and we will see him often in Ark Of Osiris. Most of Flavius Aetius’s skills are focused on defending but you can use him for field fighting also.
Should you invest in the new Flavius Aetius?
It depends. If you are a player who is focusing on field battles there is no point in getting Flavius Aetius because there are better options for field fighting like Legendary Scipio Africanus but if you are a player who is defending objectives in KVK and Ark of Osiris then definitely get him.

Flavius Aetius pairings
Scipio Africanus and Flavius make an excellent pair for dealing massive damage in the field. The disadvantage of this pairing is that they lack defensive skills and will be destroyed quickly if they are focused.
Flavius and Harald make a good field-fighting team. Harald will provide useful counter-damage, and the two of them will generate a lot of rage. However, you should only use this pairing for field combat if you don’t have Pakal, which is the best pairing for Harald.
Guan Yu and Flavius are also excellent field fighting pairs who can deal a lot of damage. Because of Guan Yu talent tree and skills, Flavius will be the secondary commander in this pairing.
Zenobia and Flavius are one of the best structures defenders in KVK and AOO. They will have a lot of counterattack and bonus stats when they pair up. If you use this pairing, you must use the Zenobia talent tree to increase your damage and defense even more.
