Recommended Talent Builds for Hermann

Hermann PvP Talent Build

Hermann 48 0 26

This talent build will maximize the archer units’ fighting capability in the battle as well as the rage regeneration that let Hermann maintain his active skill uptime.

Recommended Pairing Commanders for Hermann

Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar: Julius Caesar can command any type of troops. Since Hermann is good at controlling archer units, it will be the best when they use the pure archer build. This pair mostly about crowd control thanks to the silence from Hermann and the debuffs from Julius Caesar, which will reduce the enemy’s combat effectiveness in the battle.

  • Hermann should be the primary Commander.

Edward of Woodstock

Edward of Woodstock: If you want to take down the enemy with the strong force, then Edward is a very good choice. All of his skills focus on boosting the archer’s stats, such as health, attack, and march speed. Although both Hermann and Edward skills are lack of defense, it can partly be solved thanks to the Hermann silence and rage reduction.

  • Edward of Woodstock should be the primary Commander.
  • We recommend using the pure archer build to maximize the damage.
  • You can use El Cid or Keira as a replacement Commander.
