For the next 5 seconds, Constantine I decreases the target’s attack. His troops and his nearby allies also gain additional damage reduction.
This is a solid defensive active skill. It can reduce the enemy’s attack by 40% and the taken damage by 10%, which will mitigate a huge amount of damage when Constantine I faces a strong nuker.
|Constantine I’s infantry units gain bonus health.
Allegiance gives a huge boost to the infantry’s health. It works best when Constantine I runs infantry units only.

Cross of the Divine
|When Constantine I’s troops strength reduces to 50%, his troops will receive a monstrous healing effect. This effect can only be triggered once every hour after his army leaves the city. Whenever his troops’ strength falls below 50%, all of the healing effects will be reduced by 30%, but if he gains a shield in this state, he will gain xx% more skill damage reduction.
Healing Factor: 7500 / 9000 / 10500 / 13000 / 15000
Skill Damage Taken Reduction: 10% / 15% / 20% / 30% / 40%
Cross of the Divine is a unique skill and has an unusual restriction. It gives him a healing factor of 15000, which is a very large amount. It also reduces the skill damage taken by 40% if he has a shield, but it only applies when his troops’ strength falls below 50%, and he can only receive 70% of the amount of healing. This effect can only be triggered once every hour.

Recommended Talent Builds for Constantine I
Garrison Talent Build
This build mostly focuses on increasing his capabilities as the Garrison Commander, improving the watchtower and garrison defense and attack. It also increases his main stats like health, attack, and defense. Rage restoration is very important, so we invest in all rage-related nodes that let him use his active skill more frequently in the battle.
This is a different version of the Garrison Talent Build. It focuses more on his troops’ stats rather than garrison and watchtower.
PvP Talent Build
If you want to take advantage of his massive healing, you should use this build instead. This talent build will boost his healing effect as well as rage regeneration. Besides, his infantry armies also gain a large amount of health, defense, and attack bonus.
Pairing Commanders for Constantine I
Alexander the Great: This definitely the best partner for Constantine I because Alexander can give lots of benefits to him, such as a massive defense boost to infantry troops, bonus attack damage that Constantine I is lack of, a shield that can trigger the 40% skill damage reduction. A solid defensive combination.
- This pair has low damage outcome but has a solid defense, so you may want to use this combination to prolong the fight with a strong nuker.
- Alexander the Great should be the primary Commander.
- Charles Martel is also a good replacement if you want to deal more with the damage.
Sun Tzu: If you are looking for an epic Commander to pair with Constantine I, then Sun Tzu is perfectly fit with him. He doesn’t have many strong defensive skills comparing to Alexander or Charles Martel, but he can deal a decent amount of damage to multiple enemies at the same time. Sun Tzu’s active skill can also restore rage, which will let Constantine be able to spam his active skill even more.
- Constantine I should be the primary Commander.
