In the realm of Rise of Kingdoms, a new legendary Infantry commander has emerged – Sargon the Great. Boasting an impressive blend of Infantry, Skill, and Versatility talents, he has the potential to be a formidable force on the battlefield.
Should You Invest in Sargon the Great?
While Sar Kissatim may possess immense strength as an infantry commander, it’s important to consider whether investing in him is the wisest choice. One of the drawbacks of Sar Kissatim is the lack of active skill damage that delivers instant and powerful blows to the enemy.
To fully maximize Sar Kissatim’s potential, one must continuously attack the target for 5 seconds. However, this can prove challenging in large-scale battles. Additionally, Sar Kissatim lacks Area-of-Effect (AOE) damage skills, which are especially advantageous for free-to-play players.
Considering these factors, we advise against investing in Sar Kissatim unless you specifically need an additional infantry commander or plan to lead an infantry rally. To make informed decisions about the top-tier commanders, consult our tier list for the best value and effectiveness.

Sargon the Great: Ideal Pairings
For the optimal synergy and maximum damage potential, Sar Kissatim pairs exceptionally well with other infantry commanders who excel in dealing massive bursts of damage. If you lack these commanders, it’s wise not to invest your valuable sculptures in Sar Kissatim.
Guan Yu: A brilliant commander to pair with Sar Kissatim. Together, they form a powerful duo capable of inflicting significant damage. Notably, Guan Yu possesses AOE damage, which compensates for Sar Kissatim’s absence of such skills. While using this pairing, utilize Sar Kissatim as a secondary commander due to Guan Yu’s talent tree and first skill advantages.
Alexander: Another excellent commander to pair with Sar Kissatim. This combination offers enhanced survivability and bonus statistics. These commanders perform exceptionally well in field battles. Moreover, utilizing Alexander’s talent tree allows for cost-efficient leveling, as it spares you the expenditure of experience and gold stars needed to maximize Sar Kissatim’s potential, which can be quite expensive for free-to-play players.
