Best Attila Skills

In this part of our best Attila commander guide for beginners, we will dive deep his skills. Attila isn’t your standard legendary commander like you would normally see in others such as Julius Caesar or Ishida Mitsunari. In fact, Attila is a very powerful nuker with incredible offense skills. Which is why he is one of preferred commander in late games. See his skills below to learn more about him:

Best Attila Commander ROK

King of the Huns

For the next 4 seconds, increases normal attack damage and counterattack damage, and normal attacks have a chance to reduce enemy attack for 2 seconds.Upgrade Preview:

Counter Attack Damage Bonus: 10% / 15% / 20% / 25% / 30%
Enemy Attack Reduction: 20% / 25% / 30% / 40% / 50%

For 4 seconds, Attila gains a flat 30% damage bonus to his troops’ normal attack and counterattack damage. Furthermore, these normal attacks have a chance to reduce enemy’s troops attack by 50% for 2 seconds. Considering these bonuses is pretty powerful, especially when maintaining high active uptime.

The Siege of Constantinople
When attacking garrisons, increases all damage dealt, and has a chance every turn to reduce the garrison’s defence for 3 seconds.

Upgrade Preview:
Damage Bonus: 2% / 4% / 6% / 8% / 10%
Defense Reduction: 5% / 10% / 15% / 20% / 25%

The defense reduction debuff is actually quite big. Not only that makes the troops under Attila’s leadership have an easier time killing the enemies, they also gain 10% damage bonus towards enemy garrison. Which is a nice bonus on the top of his already strong offensive capabilities.

Skill damage against troops led by Attila is reduced, and the skill damage dealt by his own troops is also reduced. Increases cavalry units’ March Speed and attack.

Upgrade Preview:
Skill Damage Taken Reduction: 3% / 6% / 9% / 12% / 15%
Cavalry March Speed Bonus: 3% / 6% / 9% / 12% / 15%
Cavalry Attack Bonus: 20%/ 25% / 30% / 35% / 40%

The skill damage reduction toward Attila is especially a must-have perk. This passive skill allows Attila to mitigate enemy nuker’s active skills such as Mehmed II and Yi Seong-Gye, rendering them to be much weaker. Plus cavalry deals 40% more damage and marches 15% faster. Invest in this passive skill after maxing out the active skill.

Battle of the Catalaunian Plains
When the army led by Attila contains only cavalry units, normal attacks have a chance to increase to his own troops’ all damage dealt for the next 2 turns; has a 25% chance to increase all damage dealt, and has 25% chance to increase all damage dealt.

Upgrade Preview:
Bonus Damage (25% Chance): 25% / 30% / 35% / 40% / 50%
Bonus Damage (25% Chance): 50% / 60% / 70% / 80% / 100%

If you are doing a pure cavalry build with Attila, then these troops will have chance to increase damage by 50%. The troops also have same chance to increase damage by 100% for the next 2 seconds which makes this passive skill very powerful.

The Scourge of the God
Troops led by Attila are immune to Silence effects. Against enemy troops with less than 50% strength, increases damage dealt by 20%. Increases March Speed by 50% for 3 seconds after leaving the battle.

The Scourge of the God is absolutely a breathtaking enhanced skill. Basically, Attila becomes immune to silence effects, which will hammer commander silencers like Hermann and deals 20% more damage towards enemy troops that have less than 50% army strength. Best of all, if the enemy forces start to flee, Attila can easily keep up with them, executing them completely to maximize their losses.

Best Attila Talent Trees

Now that we have covered the basics of Attila skills, you are probably mouthwatering by how incredibly powerful he is when you combine all of these attack bonuses that he gets when running pure cavalry build. However, you can further maximize Attila’s combat effectiveness by integrating our top best talent builds for this legendary commander. Here’s our recommended Attila talent builds:

Conqueror Talent Build

Attila Conqueror Talent Build ROK

The best conqueror commander needs a strong conquering talent build and that is this one. Attila will greatly benefit from insane rage generation that the Conqueror talent build gives. Which means he can maintain high uptime from his active skill and effectively demolish enemy’s defenses both in PvP battles and attacking their cities. The bonuses that he gets from this talent build focuses at maximize carnage when fighting at the enemy’s cities. Perfect for players who needs a strong commander with strong talent build like this.

PvP Talent Build

Attila PvP Talent Build ROK

The Attila PvP talent build focuses at further increasing the damage, health and defense of the troops under his leadership. It also improves the march speed and gives additional overall damage which is a nice perk. However, any PvPers will know that the ability to dish out heavy blows to the enemy’s forces is essential in PvP battles. Which is why we are recommending this talent build for PvP battles.

Field Talent Build

Attila Field Talent Build ROK

If you prefer to play Attila as support commander in some rare cases, then this talent build is an ideal choice. Basically, this talent build focuses on dramatically improving Attila’s overall attack strength and march speed. At a small cost of reducing the skill damage baseline, which actually doesn’t reduce in any capacity since Attila don’t have any direct damage factor at all. 

This talent build puts Attila in a peculiar spot because it increases his overall combat effectiveness without any drawbacks. Plus, he is also able to maintain high mobilization speed to offer support whenever your friendly commanders or alliance members need help.

Best Recommended Roles (Primary / Secondary)

Attila is a solid primary commander due to his amazingly strong offense combat capabilities. However, the time when you should put Attila in secondary role is when you have very good nukers that can dish out high damage and take advantage of Attila’s passive skills.

Mixed Armies

  • Balanced DPS (Secondary)
  • Tank (Secondary)
  • Budget Siege (Secondary)

Pure Infantry

  • Balanced DPS (Secondary)
  • Tank (Secondary)
  • Budget Siege (Secondary)

Pure Cavalry

  • Balanced DPS (Primary / Secondary)
  • Tank (Primary / Secondary)
  • Budget Siege (Secondary)

Pure Archers

  • Balanced DPS (Secondary)
  • Tank (Secondary)
  • Budget Siege (Secondary)

Best Secondary Commander Pairs

As I mentioned previously that Attila is a great legendary commander and you definitely should use him whenever you can. But, in times when you have nukers that can do high amount of damage, you want to pair Attila as a secondary commander so that his Field talent build doesn’t affect the overall damage of active skill. But that also depends on the build you are rolling Attila with. Below is our recommended secondary commanders to pair with:

Cao Cao

Cao Cao ROK

If you are looking for the best commander to pair with to hunt barbarians at lighting speed, pair Cao Cao. Just like Attila, he specializes in cavalry and comes with incredible powerful active skill that deals direct damage and reduces their attack by 40%.

This pair also excels at marching speed, which they can pretty much mobilize anywhere at neck-breaking speed. The Attila and Cao Cao pair also takes advantage of increased survivability thanks to Cao Cao’s passive skill which have a small chance to heal and restore rage.

An alternative option to Cao Cao is Minamoto no Yoshitsune, Aethelflaed and Lohar.

Genghis Khan

Genghis Khan ROK

Another legendary commander that I highly recommend pairing with Attila is Genghis Khan. Because of the passive skills and active skill that Attila grants, Genghis Khan will benefit the most. Plus, he comes with an active skill which deals a heavy direct blow and doesn’t require that much rage.

Meaning, he can use his active skill as often as he can. His enhanced skill gives him a moderate chance to trigger active skill for free. Absolutely a powerful nuker combo in addition to strengthening the cavalry’s combat capabilities.

Likewise, if you don’t have Genghis Khan then your second best option is Saladin.

Takeda Shingen

Best Takeda Shingen Commander

Takeda Shingen is another excellent legendary commander to pair with. If you are looking for a debuffer pair, Takeda Shingen and Attila goes together quite nicely. While both lacks the ability to deal direct damage, this pair is actually a nuker combo.

Because Takeda Shingen is able to debuff the enemy target, reducing their defense and dynamically improves your troops’ overall damage at the same time. Plus the bonuses that cavalry gets from this pair is massive compared to other pairs. In a sense, this is a debuffer combo that is a secret nuke pair in a wolf’s coat.

In case you don’t have Takeda Shingen, you can roll with Baibars instead if you want to take advantage of his AoE splash damage active skill.
