Deception is a mighty active skill since it can decrease the target’s attack and defense by 30%, which can be very useful when he has to deal with a strong nuker. It will mitigate some of the damage which can help him to survive longer in the battle. Then he deals a damage factor of 450 to the same target in the next turn. This skill is definitely needed to max out first.

Although the bonus defense doesn’t change, the 20% more bonus march speed is very nice to have. It certainly benefits you in reaching the target more quickly, let Belisarius does the crowd control on the battlefield.

Pairing Commanders for Belisarius

Genghis Khan

Genghis Khan: He is one of the strongest nukers in the game. Together they can both easily bring the enemy down. Genghis Khan is one of the few legendary Commander in the game that has a chance to activate his active skill without any rage, which is synergy well with the defense reduction form Belisarius. Khan also has passive skills that increase the cavalry march speed, attack damage, and reduce the rage requirement for active skill.

Genghis Khan definitely is the primary Commander in this pair.

Pelagius 1

Pelagius: This is a defensive combination. The healing from Pelagius and the bonus defense from Belisarius will give the enemy a lot of trouble to take them down. On the other hand, they can do a decent amount of damage thanks to Pelagius’ rage restoration. It also lets them maintain their active skill uptime.

Belisarius should be the primary Commander in this pair.

You can use Mehmed II as a replacement if you want a Commander that can help Belisarius with the crowd control on the field.
