Pelagius’s Best Pairing Commanders:

Cao Cao 1

Cao Cao:

  • Cao Cao is well-known for his mobility. He is one of the fastest Commander in the game. Cao Cao and Pelagius can make a very good pair since both of them are specialized in cavalry and have a passive skill that will improve the cavalry strength in the battle. The rage restoration is also a very big buff to Cao Cao since his active ability is very strong.
  • Pelagius should serve as the secondary Commander in this pair.
  • Minamoto no Yoshitsune is also a good replacement for Cao Cao.



  • If you want to deal AoE damage, then Baibars is definitely is a good considerable option. Baibars’s active skill can deal AoE damage and slow down the enemy’s march speed. In addition, he also has a passive skill that increases cavalry attack by 20%, and the ability to heal and increase march speed 50% for 10 seconds after leaving the battle.
  • In this pair, you will want Pelagius to be a primary Commander.
  • If you want to burst down a single target quickly, then Mehmed II definitely is the one you want.
