You can learn more about the greatest civilizations in Rise of Kingdoms. I will help you choose the right one to build your empire and quickly advance in the game.
But wait, why is it important which civilization I choose in Rise of Kingdoms.
That’s up to you, dear friend. Do you want to choose based on history, looks and famous characters? Are you a dedicated player who will pick the best civilization to start the game, then switch to another that excels at a particular task, and finally change again for the end?
Don’t be overwhelmed by KVK. It is actually much easier than you might imagine. It doesn’t matter which nation you choose, you will do well if your kingdom is constantly upgraded and you keep moving at a steady pace.
Is Rise of Kingdoms the best civilization?
Truth be told, there will be some who will claim that Rise of Kingdoms has the best civilization, but you will only begin to notice a significant difference at the endgame.
There are many factors that influence what makes a nation a good one. It’s almost funny. Consider your role in the Alliance. What are you going to do? Where should your primary focus be? What do you think is the best way to choose?
You might choose to pick a country based on the needs of your friends (let’s take RoK with two friends). There are nations that excel at certain tasks, and others that do well in all areas. I was not even ready to get into the premium-play or f2p style. This can have an impact on which civilization you choose to play.
It’s a complex process to say the least. Let’s now take all of this into account and let’s look at the top civilizations in Rise of Kingdoms.
Rise of Kingdoms Civilizations Tier Liste
Boudica will be yours
You will get an increase in Archer Attack of 5%, troop training speed up by 5% and increased ally garrison capacities by 20%
You will get a 5% increase in cavalry attack, a 5% increase in troop training speed, and a 20% increase in action points recovery.
Sun Tzu will be yours
You will get a 3% increase in troop defense, a 5% faster recovery of action points, and a 5% higher building speed, which is very useful in the later game.
You will get 5% more archer defense, 15% more hospital capacity, and 33% higher research speed. In the later game, when everything takes a long time to develop, the increase in research speed is incredible.
You will get 5% more cavalry attack, 10% less damage to barbarians and other neutral troops, and 5% more damage from rallied armies. This is great for those who want to concentrate on cavalry and barbarian hunting.
This passive will give you a 3% increase in troop attack, a 30% faster scout marche speed, and a 5% increase in resource gathering speed. These passives are amazing and will greatly assist you in the later game.
You will get 3% more troop HP, 10% faster hospital healing speed, and 10% higher troop speed. France’s healing speed is amazing, which might make it a good choice for those who are very PvP-focused.
You will get 5% more cavalry defense, 10% less experience from neutral units and 20% higher resource production. These passives can be quite good, but they tend not to work well in the later game.
You will get 5% more archer HP, faster march speed, and 5% more active skill damage
You will get a 5% increase in cavalry HP, a 10% faster speed for stone gathering and a 15% higher hospital capacity. This is a pretty average late-game stat unless you’re heavily gathering-focused.
You will get a 5% increase in infantry defense, a 5% faster troop marche speed, and a 10% greater food gathering speed. It will drop off in the final game, but for a beginner, the increased infantry DEF and troop march speed are quite acceptable.
How can you switch civilizations in Rise of Kingdoms
After we’ve discussed all the great civilizations, you might have a thought. That is changing the country. There are two main options for switching to another country:
You can use 10,000 crystals (which, if you ask my friends, is very expensive)
Spend 2,000,000 Alliance Currency at the Alliance Shop for Civilization Swap Tokens. This is the preferred way to go, and why you should be a member of a strong and active Alliance.
What is the verdict?
Let’s sum it all. Here are the rules for choosing the right civilization according to your playstyle.
- Britain: This nation is great for beginners. It is good for PvP, PvE and archer-focused. Boudica is great for barbarian farming.
- Byzantium is a good civilization for PvP as well as PvE. It has good cavalry units, cavalry focus and it’s great for farming stone.
- Rome is good for PvP. It’s focused on infantry units and it’s great for farming food.
- France – It’s great for development and is great for premium players. Joan of Arc is able to use it, as it increases hospital healing speed.
- Japan – It’s an infantry-focused country, great for actively farming resources, and it looks really, really good!
- Germany – It’s a cavalry-focused civilisation, great for troop training speed and particularly good for action point recovery in the late game.
- Arabia is also cavalry-focused and good for hunting or farming barbarians.
- Spain is a cavalry-focused country, great for passively producing resources. It also has a lot of EXP from neutral objectives.
- Korea is an archer-oriented civilization. It’s great to develop, especially in research and has some really beautiful buildings.
- Ottoman Empire – It’s an archer-focused civilization. If you want to have a nation that benefits from being a premium player it’s very good. They focus on active skill damage during battles.
- China – It’s a great overall nation, Sun Tzu is there and it’s amazing given the higher action point recovery speed.
