This is a very effective ability for PvE, which makes it easy enough for Cao Cao to destroy neutral units with relative ease.

This is definitely a PvP build because it mostly focuses on increasing health, defense, and attack of cavalry units.
There are some nodes that increase Cao Cao’s resistance against the reduction of movement speed.
It is very effective when the enemy Commander has the ability to gain bonus damage while you are slowed.
This is an alternative PvP build. Although it has less % attack and defense, it has twice the march speed than the original build.
Recommended Roles for Cao Cao
Cao Cao is a strong Commander that should be in the primary role. He can serve as the secondary role when there is a strong nuker that pairs with him.
Cao Cao Pairing Commanders
- Genghis Khan is one of the most powerful single-target nukers in the game, and he can pair well with Cao Cao. Since both of them can deal massive damage to a single target, and both are specialized in the cavalry.
- Genghis Khan works best as a primary Commander because his set of skills is all about dealing damage, and he also has a chance to use his active skill for free. Cao Cao will also benefit from Khan’s damage bonus. In addition, his healing can reduce the wounded units during the battle.
- Thank to Attila skills, this combination is a very powerful force that can deal lots of damage with normal attack and counter-attack. It also can neutralize the enemy’s combat capabilities, which can easily help to dominate the enemy in the battle.
