Belisarius Guide

If you want to achieve the ultimate city that you desire, you should take the right path. To find the right direction, you should combine the best commanders and follow some tips and tricks.

Belisarius is one of the strongest cavalry epic commanders in Rise of Kingdoms. Although he is not the first epic you should invest in, he has similar talent trees to the commander Cao Cao. Further, his cavalry skills hold value throughout the game. Belisarius is ranking good on Rise of Kingdoms Tier list for Field battel simply because he is fast.

This article will give the newest information on Belisarius and more. Plus, you can find a review of his skills while helping you understand how to use him well.

Belisarius holds surprising longevity in the Rise of Kingdoms. One of the key reasons for his longevity is because he is a peacekeeper. Therefore, you can use him all the time when you are in a battle with the barbarians.

He also has a third skill that gives him a large march speed boost. Whenever he leaves combat, he is a premier carrier of the Ark of Osiris. This is also one of the main reasons why he is still so popular.

Although there are many legendary commanders, many gamers prefer him to bring home the glory.

You must have a Belisarius commander with the highest skill and level. You’ll be relying on him all the time for:

Barbarians– Because Belisarius is a peacekeeping commander, you will use him constantly to destroy barbarians in order to save action points, and because of Belisarius’s fast mobility speed, you will be able to move from barb to barb very quickly.

Hunting– With the right mobility talent tree, Belisarius will be able to hunt other players while gathering. If you combine him with Cao Cao, you will have the fastest troops in Rise Of Kingdoms.

Runes– We all know how great runes are, and if you are far from the rune you are looking for, you can use Belisarius to quickly gather it.

PVE– great commander for saving action points, but his secondary skill allows him to deal 35% more damage to barbarians, which is nice. So good as a PVE commander.

PVP-He is bad for field fighting in PVP due to his commander’s mobility. For PVP, only use him to hunt farmers and avoid fighting full enemy troops. You will simply lose all of your troops. It’s simply not worth it.

Active Skills

Belisarius deals direct damage to the target on the next turn while reducing the attack by 30%. Further, he reduces defense by 30% for 2 seconds.

The damage factor for him is also extremely low for an epic as it is only 450. The lower damage factor and the reduced rate of attack can be very useful while battling barbarians. As you can see, he has a 30% defense, which is extremely great. 

Oblique Tactics

When you set out a troop led by Belisarius, they will deal 25% increased damage when the target has less than 50% remaining units. So, you can use his troop to get a large boost in damage, especially when the opposing forces are weak.

Expertise Skills

His expertise skills, Bloodthirsty Bucellarii, make him more powerful. Further, it makes his third skill more useful. The third skill is where the cavalry units led by Belisarius gain a 30% increase in defense. This number is the highest among other troops.

The troop’s march speed gets increased by 50% for 10 seconds as well after the battle. However, without the expertise, the increase in defense will only be 15%. The defense increases twice the original, which is a great deal.

Additionally, the increase in speed will also be 5% less without the expertise.

Skill Up

You can easily unlock Belisarius with a gold key, yet there are only two ways to upskill him. In both directions, you will have to start by maximizing the first skill.

  • For battling barbarians – increase the first two skills, then take him up to 4 stars.
  • For running in the open field – increase the first skill and take him up to four starts before upgrading additional skills.
