When you star up Scipio Africanus (Prime), you unlock a new skill. It’s essential to prioritize the order in which you upgrade your commander’s skills to maximize their effectiveness. Not all skills are equally valuable, so investing your sculptures wisely will yield the best results.
Scipio Prime is an Infantry commander, but you don’t have to limit yourself to running a full infantry march. However, pairing him with another infantry commander and using the talent builds we’ll discuss later tends to work best. So why not have some fun and go all-in with a full infantry march?
Best Commander Pairings for Scipio Africanus (Prime)
Here are some ideal commander pairings for Scipio Africanus (Prime):
Guan Yu: Guan Yu synergizes incredibly well with Scipio. The shields provided by Scipio enhance Guan Yu’s damage output, creating a mutually beneficial partnership. Check out the talent builds for Guan Yu here.
Alexander the Great: Pairing Scipio with Alexander the Great creates a tanky and durable march. The combination of shielding and high-scaling direct damage skills will make it difficult for your enemies to deal with you. Find the talent builds for Alexander the Great here.
Trajan: Scipio can also work well with Trajan, allowing you to run a mixed troop march. This duo is an upgraded version of the popular Trajan & Aethelflaed march. Explore the talent builds for Trajan here.
Cheok Jun-Gyeong (CJ): Scipio and CJ have excellent synergy. Scipio’s shielding and reduction of enemy skill damage complement CJ’s shielding and AoE damage. This combination overwhelms the enemy with an abundance of shields, extra damage, and reduced skill damage. Check out the talent builds for Cheok Jun-Gyeong (CJ) here.
Honda Tadakatsu: Scipio can pair up with various other commanders. You can choose to pair him with commanders like Mehmed, Harald, and even Aethelflaed. If Scipio is your first legendary commander, you can also pair him with an epic commander like Sun Tzu or Joan of Arc (the epic version). Discover the talent builds for Honda Tadakatsu here.

When it comes to equipment, here’s what I recommend for Scipio Africanus (Prime):
- Aim to equip Scipio with Windswept items as a basic equipment set.
- Then, start working towards acquiring Witch’s Lineage, Quinn’s Soul, Gatekeeper’s Shield, Seth’s Brutality, Kuruak’s Humility, and Frost Treads to maximize his potential.
Additionally, the Horn of Fury accessory works perfectly with Scipio Prime, helping to chain his primary skill and maintain its uptime. The Ring of Doom is another accessory that I recommend for Scipio Prime as it provides additional damage. You may also consider Mora’s Web, but personally, I prefer the ring.
Best Builds for Scipio Africanus (Prime)
Below, you will find talent tree builds for Scipio Africanus (Prime) to use as the primary commander in any march in Rise of Kingdoms. Please refer to the description accompanying each talent tree for a general route on how to allocate talents. I will provide additional background information for each talent build, which you will likely find useful.
The first talent tree build is balanced and suitable for the majority of players. It offers extra rage and treats from the Support Tree, combined with the Infantry Tree’s full potential, where Scipio’s strength lies. Note that the Rejuvenate talent in the Support Tree provides more extra rage compared to the Skill Tree. Two points in Rejuvenate should suffice; going beyond that may exceed the rage cap, thus wasting talent points. However, if you pair Scipio with a commander that offers healing, you may consider investing in Counterattack and Healing Elixir in the Skill Tree, while reducing points allocated to the Infantry Tree.
The second talent tree build focuses more on support. It works well with Scipio Prime, but I recommend skipping the Snare of Thorns talent. It’s not because it’s useless or ineffective, but rather because the other talents provide more value. Nevertheless, if you choose to allocate points to Snare of Thorns, it won’t have a significant impact on your overall build.
