Rise of Kingdoms Unique Troops Guide for Beginners

Each civilization in Rise of Kingdoms comes with their own traits and unique troops which unlocks throughout ages. In this particular, each civilization have unique troop that becomes available at Tier 4 / Tier 5 and often have better stats than a regular unit.

In this guide, we are going to talk about each civilization’s unique unit, mainly what they look like and what their stats are and how you can benefit the most using them in your armies.

Before we get to the details in this guide, you shouldn’t be choosing your civilization based on these troops alone. Traits is also a big part of the game that affects how you play your game at maximum level.

Also keep it in your mind that all unique units becomes available at Tier 4. Which most likely means a majority of the playerbase will never get the opportunity to unlock them — or eventually unlock them after playing a ton of time.

In fact, to unlock Tier 4 troops you will have to have City Hall at Level 21 with Academy matching at that level. The time it takes to research for each unit is approximately 30 days (1 Month) in real-time.

In the other words, there’s real-end game stuff and the time it takes to research all Tier 4 troops isn’t quite that important as you thought in Rise of Kingdoms. Many players unlock their unique unit first upon reaching Tier 4 and largely stick to one troop-type army in combination with the support of their allies.

Which also means it’s recommended to join one of these top alliances since you will need them to work together to build a diversified force.

So, if you aren’t sure which civilization to pick, then I suggest you to pick one that offers the best commander and general boost, not just unique troop. For starters, here’s some civilizations and commanders that I recommended investing your time in:
