Best Edward of Woodstock Talent Trees

In this part, we will talk about which talent builds to use for this legendary commander. Because of the fact that he is easy to get killed on the battlefield, it is best to position him as the support commander on the battlefield while your more powerful armies takes the frontline like Alexander the Great for instance. Here, we have 2 best talent builds to choose for Edward of Woodstock.

PvP Talent Build

Edward of Woodstock PvP Talent Build

One of the best talent build is PvP and it works well with his skill set. Although, it doesn’t generate rage as fast as the second talent build, this is designed to provide blanket buffs to archers, specifically in attack, defense, march speed and health. A solid talent build for making your troops slightly more tanky in heat of battles.

Nuker Talent Build

Edward of Woodstock Nuker Talent Build

If you want to transform Edward of Woodstock into one of the most powerful nuker available in your arsenal, this talent build is the way to go. Instead of investing points to boost your archers, majority of the points goes to increasing the speed of rage generation and doing even more damage with skills. Good choice for dealing major blows.

Best Secondary Commander Pairs

Before we list out the best secondary commanders to pair with Edward of Woodstock,  I want to point out that he specializes in archer. Which means he works the best and gets the most boost when pairing with other commanders who is also specialized in archers. Here’s our recommended commanders for pairing with Edward of Woodstock, the Black Prince:

Yi Seong-Gye

Yi Seong-Gye Commander Rise of Kingdoms

If you are looking for a secondary commander to pair with who can massively boost Edward of Woodstock’s combat capabilities, Yi Seong-Gye is absolutely beast. He gives 50% damage bonus to skills and has a small chance to increase damage of archers by 80%. Plus a chance to gain 100 rage which means Edward of Woodstock can whittle his active skill more often.

If you are concerned about lack of the ability to do splash damage, Yi Seong-Gye has your back. Because he can hit up to 5 targets in a full circle area. Great for handling multiple targets while the primary commander do all the heavy lift.


Tomyris Commander Rise of KingdomsTomyris is another solid commander to further increase the damage of single target. She isn’t like other commanders since poison is her specialty. But when you pair her with Edward of Woodstock, both get damage bonus and improved defense against cavalry.

Tomyris can do upwards to roughly 2,000 damage using her active skill when depleting all the 15 stacks. Making her a solid commander for delivering massive blow in addition to Archer’s Honor.

 Ramesses II

Ramesses II Commander

Another good commander to pair with is Ramesses II. He gives a solid combination of attack and defense bonus, making this pair quite tanky to help offset Edward of Woodstock’s fragile defense. Furthermore, Ramesses II is an excellent debuffer as he reduces the enemy’s defense, making it easier to do more damage.

Bonus point, if you have Ramesses II maxed out then his active skill will prevent them from healing for 2 seconds. Which will hinders their ability to withstand battle in the long run. Good for killing your enemies quickly.
