Pairing Commanders for Ramesses II

Yi Seong Gye

Yi Seong-Gye: Yi Seong-Gye can boost Ramesses II’s active skill damage by 50%, it means that Ramesses will do 3,000 damage in 2 seconds, huge damage to a single target. Yi Seon-Gye can also help Ramesses II deal with multiple enemies thanks to his active skill. Since they both specialize in archery, they certainly benefit each other with the extra attack, defense, and march speed.

Ramesses II should be the primary Commander. You can use Kusunoki Masashige or Hermann if you haven’t owned Yi Seong-Gye yet.

Artemisia I

Artemisia I: There are some drawbacks to her abilities, such as the self-damaged, can silence herself for 5 seconds, and increasing the enemy’s active skill damage. However, she is still a beast when dealing with multiple enemies. The self-damage can be solved with the healing from Ramesses II. In return for the silence, she and her partner will gain 50% extra damage. The enemy’s bonus skill damage can be mitigating thanks to Ramesses’ 2nd She also gives quite a decent amount of bonus defense and health to archer units. Together they can be a perfect combo if done correctly.

Ramesses II should be the primary Commander.
