Wu Zetian 10 25 39

This is a standard garrison build. We invest in some very good nodes like Kings Guard and City Guardian in the Garrison branch. These nodes will help Wu Zetian improve her troops’ health and attack damage. We also want to improve her rage regeneration by taking Burning Blood and Hidden Wrath nodes. Since it is more of defensive build, nodes like Emergency Protection, Elixir, and Healing Herbs are very good to take.

If you want a more offensive build, you can use this above build:

Pairing Commanders for Wu Zetain

Constantine I

Constantine I: Constantine I and Wu Zetian are both solid defensive Commander that can easily deal with any nukers. Constantine has a very useful active skill that can reduce the attack damage as well as the taken damage. Besides, he has a passive skill that can heal wounded troops a lot every hour, which will reduce the amount of resource used for healing troops.

Constantine I should be the primary Commander.

Charles Martel 1

Charles Martel: Charles can put up a shield that can absorb a huge amount of damage. In addition, the infantry units gain 20% more health and defense is a very good bonus. The 30% more counterattack damage will bring even more damage to Wu Zetian’s already strong countering strength. Charles Martel gives 10% more damage to watchtower that make this pair is a very powerful defensive force.

Charles Martel should be the primary Commander.

You can use Eulji Mundeok or Sun Tzu as an acceptable replacement if you don’t have Charles Martel yet.

Yi Seong Gye

Yi Seong-Gye: Yi Seong-Gye can be a very strong anti-nuker because of his strong active skill. He also has a passive skill that boosts 50% more damage to Wu Zetian’s active skill. He can restore rage fast that can help him maintain his active skill uptime. This combination can easily dish out heavy blows to the enemy.

Yi Seong-Gye should be the primary Commander.
