Following the death of Libuse, Vlasta leads a band of women against the male forces of Libuse widower, Premysl. Sarka, Vlasta’s lieutenant, entraps a band of armed men led by Ctirad by tying herself to a tree and claiming that the rebel maidens tied her there and put a horn and a jug of mead out of reach to mock her.
Ctirad believes her story and unties her from the tree, whereupon she pours the mead for the men as a celebratory thank you gift. Little do the men know that Sarka and the maidens have put a sleeping potion into the mead. When all the men have fallen asleep,
Sarka blows the horn as a signal for the rebel maidens to come out of their hiding places and join her in slaughtering the men. She is captured and defeated along with the rest of the army soon afterward.
Welcome to our in-depth Rise of Kingdoms guide for Commander Sarka. This informative guide was created to help provide an overview of Sarka skills, talent trees, gameplay, strategies, and guides in Rise of Kingdoms. The purpose of this overview guide is to help new and experienced players understand how to play Sarka effectively and maximize your strategic advantages.
Sarka is a notable elite commander, known for her attractiveness and the ability to seduce enemy forces with her love potions. Although, she is primarily used for gathering purposes due to low offensive capabilities — especially when you start skilling in Short-Lived Heroine. Regardless, Sarka is a highly desired elite commander for farming resources in Rise of Kingdoms.
You can obtain Sarka through unlocking Silver Chest or Golden Chest. Alternatively, you can collect Sarka sculptures which can be used to summon this commander. That being said, Sarka has a rarity of elite which makes her easy to obtain early in the game for everyone who needs a gather commander.
Best Sarka Skills
In this section of our commander guide for Sarka we are going to talk about his skills in detail. The purpose of this part is to let you know what each skill does and how they can help turn the tide of battle into your favor when playing Sarka as your commander in Rise of Kingdoms.
|Rage Requirement: 1000|
Deals direct damage once to a single target and reduces its march speed for the next 3 seconds.
Direct Damage Factor: 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 / 200
Enchantment is an active skill that deals direct damage and reduces the enemy’s march speed for 3 seconds. This active skill makes Sarka a perfect commander for making the escape from opposing players who are trying to harass you. At max active skill, it reduces your enemy force’s march speed by 30%.
|The Maidens’ War|
|Increases the gathering speed of all kind of resources.|
Gathering Speed Bonus: 3% / 6% / 10% / 14% / 18%
The Maidens’ War is one of the best passive skills that increase the gathering speed of troops under Sarka’s leadership. When this passive skill is maxed out, it gives 18% gathering speed bonus in addition to points invested in the talent tree.
|Increases troop load.|
Load Bonus: 5% / 10% / 15% / 20% / 30%
Lost Treasure makes your troop bring up to 30% more resources. This passive skill is ideal for gathering resource spots, especially high level. The amount of resources gathered can be further expanded with talent points invested in troop load capacity.
|Increases troops capacity, but reduces troop attack.|
Troop Capacity Bonus: 2% / 4% / 6% / 8% / 10%
This passive skill is alright, not the best but it is not the worst either. It is kind of a double-edge sword right there because you get more troop size at the cost of reducing the attack power. This passive skill nullifies Sarka as a potential offensive commander.
Best Sarka Talent Trees
In this part, we will talk about the best talent build for Sarka. As I mentioned previously that Short-Lived Heroine makes her unlikely to fill in the role as a combat commander. Her traits and skills also solidifies her as a gathering commander. Hence there is only one ideal talent build for Sarka.
Gathering Talent Build
We highly recommend this gathering talent build tree for Sarka. Majority of the points are specialized in improving her gathering rate. At the same time, some of the points aims to expand her troops capacity so that you can add more siege units and increase overall resources load. Which makes Sarka an incredible strong and valuable gathering commander to use.
Star Level & Talent Point Upgrade Priority
In the next part of our Best Sarka commander guide, I am going to talk about star level & talent point upgrade priority to maximize your commander’s combat potential. Here’s how to prioritize your Sarka effectively:
Gathering Talent Build:
- Level Sarka to 2 ⭐ and max out her second skill.
- Level Sarka to 3 ⭐ and max out her third skill.
- Level Sarka to 4 ⭐ and max out all of her skills.
Best Commander Pairs
Believe it or not, Sarka is a great elite commander for gathering resources. She may not be great at combat, but her troops sure as hell carry more resource load and gathers in less time. Which is why we recommend pairing Sarka with these primary commanders for protection.
By default, Cleopatra VII is the ideal primary commander to pair with Sarka due to her gathering skills. When you pair Cleopatra VII with Sarka, her resource load and gathering speed tremendously increase which plays vital role in harvesting resources.
Because Cleopatra VII is a legendary commander, it might be challenging for some in the beginning since it takes time to summon her. However, if you want to maximize your resource gathering early on, you can pair Sarka with Constance or Joan of Arc instead.
To maximize your troops’ defense capabilities while harvesting resources, Charles Martel is the perfect primary commander. If you plan to sleep or won’t be online for few hours, Charles Martel will have no issues ensuring that your resources gathering progress remains uninterrupted.
His active skill dramatically increase the defense value of troops. Which makes it rough for the attackers to defeat your troops. In addition to that, Charles Martel reduces the number of severely wounded units. This is a big help because it means you can tow in more resources and repair less units after the battle — which means you only need to spend less resources in events like this happens to you.
If you prefer speed over defense and expanded resources capacity, Baibars is a good epic commander to pair with Sarka. His passive skills reduces the enemy troops’ march speed and increases your troops’ march speed for 10 seconds by 20%.
This allows you to perform emergency movements in case someone launches attack at you while gathering resources. Which means you only lose less resources while they waste their time chasing after you. Bonus point, if you specialize in cavalry with siege units then your primary & secondary commanders will get a nice bonus to the knights.
It is also worth pairing with Seondeok, another popular legendary gathering commander in Rise of Kingdoms. When you do gatherer combo, you get increased gathering rate which makes it possible to get the resources and bring back to your city in less time.
Seondeok’s already strong gathering skills will dramatically reduce the amount of time you need to harvest resources. Plus her active skill deals damage and reduces the enemy rage which is quite strong against single-target. So it is nice to have a strong commander to pair with who excels at gathering.
