In this following guide, we will give you some overview of Theodora’s skills, talent tree, and strategy in Rise of Kingdoms. Hopefully, this guide will help new players how to use Theodora and how to maximize her strength in the game.
|Leadership | Garrison | Defense|
Theodora is a legendary Commander who comes from Byzantium. She is also one of the newest Commanders that was released in the recent Summer update patch and one of the best garrison Commanders in the game. Her robust set of abilities will effectively protect your city as well as making the invaders suffer huge setbacks.
She is only available when the kingdom reaches 310 days old, and the only way to obtain her is to participate in “The Mightiest Governor Event”.
|Rage Requirement: 1000|
Theodora directly hits 5 enemies in a circular area. The damage will be reduced by 15% for each target after successfully hitting the first target.
Byzantine Empress is a powerful active skill that can hit up to 5 enemies around her. Although the damage will be reduced by 15% for each target strike, it is still very useful when Theodora serves as a garrison Commander, which means that she can handle against multiple invaders at the same time in PvP.
Keeper of Secrets
|When serving as a garrison Commander, all troops under the leadership of Theodora gain bonus defense and take less damage against rally armies.|
It is a great passive skill that can improve Theodora’s garrison ability. At max level, it gives her troops 10% more defense and 10% damage reduction from any rally armies. In total, Theodora’s troops gain cumulatively 15% damage reduction.
|Co-Ruler gives all troops under the leadership of Theodora xx% attack bonus. When her troops have more than 50% strength, they deal xx% more damage.|
Another passive skill that does nothing but giving Theodora’s troops 10% more attack, and when her troops’ strength is more than 50%, they deal 10% more damage.
|When serving as a garrison Commander, each time Theodora’s troops take damage, they will have a 10% chance to gain extra damage for 3 seconds.|
Royal Power is an excellent passive skill that can boost Theodora’s fighting capability in the battle by giving her troop a small chance to strike 40% more damage each time they get hit for 3 seconds.
Honor to the Last
|Enhanced: Byzantine Empress. |
· Without Expertise: Theodora directly hits 5 enemies with 1,400 damage in a circular area. The damage will be reduced by 15% for each target after successfully hitting the first target.
· With Expertise: Theodora directly hits 5 enemies with 1,700 damage in a circular area. The damage will be reduced by 15% for each target after successfully hitting the first target. Additionally, any slow and control effects will be removed immediately.
The benefit of enhanced active skill is too hard to ignore because it removes any slow and control effects from her troops. Furthermore, it increases the damage factor of her active skill from 1,400 to 1,700.
Recommended Talent Builds for Theodora
Garrison Talent Build
This is considered the most suitable build for Theodora since most of her ability involves gaining bonus garrison’s stats. This talent build focuses on reducing the incoming damage as well as skill damage from the invaders. It also increases the rage restoration, which will let Theodora uses her active skill as many as possible during the fight.
Second Garrison Talent Build
This alternative version of garrison talent build gives slightly more defense than the first one.
Pairing Commanders for Theodora
Wu Zetian: Wu Zetian definitely is the best garrison Commander to pair with Theodora. She has the ability to deal with the rally troops and even counter them. She also can empower Theodora’s fighting capabilities as the primary garrison Commander. They are an excellent combination that can be a significant threat to the enemies in PvP battles.
Yi Sun-Sin: He is another fantastic garrison Commander that is a perfect match to Theodora. He gives lots of defensive stats as well as a shield that can abord a certain amount of damage. Although his abilities are lack of dealing AoE damage, he and Theodora are still a fearful force on the battlefield.
Sun Tzu: He is one of the best epic Commander in the game. He can pair well with Theodora since he has an active skill that deals AoE damage. Additionally, he has a useful passive skill that can increase the active skill damage; this will further improve the overall damage to invaders.
