Ever since childhood, I have been an avid PC gamer. So, it is no wonder I write topics about PC gaming and building PCs for gaming.
Mehmed II is considered one of the best nukers in Rise of Kingdoms. Nope, he is not only notable in the game because of his powerful AOE nuking ability but he is largely notable because of his exceptional city conquering ability. He does excel pretty well in open-field battles through his nuking ability; however, he is best utilized as a city conquering commander.
Regardless of wherever you’ll utilize Mehmed II, he will surely be a strong adversary to his foes. However, he might have powerful innate skills and abilities but he will still be limited by his talents. Thus, this Mehmed II Talent Tree Build Guide will definitely unlock his full potential and make him one of the most powerful commanders in the game. Surely, wherever you’ll utilize him while using this Mehmed II Talent Tree Build Guide, he will surely be a great adversary to his foes.
How to Summon Mehmed II in "Rise of Kingdoms"
Mehmed II is not exempted from the summoning difficulty that legendary commanders experience. Perhaps, only Aethelfaed, another legendary commander is easier to summon since she is available in the Expedition’s store.
However, Mehmed II is probably more fortunate than some of the legendary commanders because he is available as a reward for opening Golden Chests in the Tavern. Some legendary commanders are not available as rewards. Anyway, here a list of ways to summon Mehmed II or to obtain Mehmed II sculptures:
- Unlock Golden Chests in the Tavern
- Find his sculptures randomly in the Expedition's Store
- Earn his sculptures by placing in the “The Mightiest Governor” Event
List of Mehmed II's Skills
Here is a list of Mehmed II's skills:
- Ottoman Cannons: Deals damage (Damage Factor 1150) to enemies in a forward-facing fan-shaped area (maximum 5 targets). Damage dealt to each target will reduced by 15% for each additional target. This skill deals additional damage to city garrisons and watchtowers (Damage Factor 00).
- Lord of Land and Sea: Increases troop attack by 20% and increases skill damage dealt by 20%
- Fatih: When attacking cities, normal attacks have a 10% chance to deal additional damage (Damage Factor 1000) to the garrison.
- Sage King: Increases troop capacity bonus by 10%. When this commander launches a rally, increases rallied army capacity by 10%.
- Orban Bombard: Deals damage (Damage Factor 1350) to enemies in a forward-facing fan-shaped area (maximum 5 targets). Damage dealt to each target will be reduced by 15% for each additional target. This skill deals additional damage to city garrison and watchtowers (Damage Factor 800), and has a 50% chance to deal a second burst of additional damage to city garrisons and watchtowers (Damage Factor 500).
Most of Mehmed II’s skills are powerful nuking abilities. His first skill, Ottoman Cannons, second skill, Lord of Land and Sea, third skill, Fatih, and expert skill, Orban Bombard, are all nuking skills.
Each of these skills either deals a huge amount of damage or increases Mehmed II’s overall attack damage. However, most of these skills are only unlock when he is attacking a city. All the additional damage brought by his skills are only activated during city attacks. This is exactly why he is best utilized in city conquering rather than utilizing him in open-field battles. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean he is bad in field skirmishes.
Building him with the right talents, his abilities will definitely still impact any open-field battle led by Mehmed II. Don’t you worry though because this Mehmed II Talent Tree Build Guide will show you how to best build him as an open-field nuking commander and as a city conquering commander.
Another thing to note about Mehmed II as an exceptional city conqueror is his fourth skill, Sage King. His Sage King Ability, which increases his rallied army capacity, is a unique ability in Rise of Kingdoms. He probably is the only commander in the game that has this kind of skill. Having this skill, his ability to conquer cities excels even further. An additional troop of more than 200,000 will definitely help their offensive rally to deal more damage to any targeted city or targeted reinforced structure.
Recommended Talent Build
Mehmed II has the following talents: Leadership, Skill and Conquering Talents. Since he excels both in nuking and conquering. This Mehmed II Talent Tree Build Guide will be showing you two ways how to build him into a powerful nuker and city conqueror.
For Mehmed II’s city conquering talent tree build, we will mainly be focusing on the Leadership Talent Tree and spend a few talent points on the Skill and Conquering Talent Trees. We won’t be focusing on the Conquering Talent Tree since Mehmed II will be able to benefit more in the Leadership Talent Tree than the Conquering Talent Tree.
To start on Mehmed II Conquering Talent Tree Build, unlock Name of the King, Strategic Prowess, Close Formation, Armed to the Teeth and Fresh Recruits Talents in the Leadership Talent Tree.
Taking these talents from the Leadership Talent Tree significantly increases Mehmed II and his army’s overall stats. This greatly improves his ability in conquering cities and reinforced structures.
Next, move to Skill Talent Tree to unlock Latent Power, Burning Blood, Tactical Mastery and Heraldic Shield.
Improve his nuking ability by taking talents which increases his nuking damage and rage restoration.
Lastly, from the Conquering Talent Tree, take Moment of Triumph to significantly increase Mehmed II’s damage dealt and Buckler Shield to reduce counterattack damage taken.
Mehmed II Nuking Talent Tree Build
For Mehmed II’s nuking talent tree build, this Mehmed II Talent Tree Build Guide will focus on unlocking talents from the Skill Talent Tree. To build Mehmed II as a powerful nuker, we need to unlock talents which significantly increase his overall damage and rage restoration.
Thus, the following talents from the Skill Talent Tree must be unlocked: Buff, Rejuvenate, Feral Nature and Clarity. All of these talents increase his attack damage, skill damage and rage restoration.
Mehmed II will still have remaining talents to spend. So, spend the remaining talents in the Leadership Talent Tree and unlock Strategic Prowess, Steely Soul and Fresh Recruits. These will further increase his overall damage; thereby, it increases his nuking ability.
Recommended Pair or Secondary Commanders
Mehmed II’s exceptional ability in nuking and conquering makes him very easy to pair with most of the commanders. However, it would be such a waste to pair him with an unideal commander; thus, the following commanders below are the recommended pair for Mehmed II.
1. Hannibal Barca
Hannibal Barca is another excellent city conquering commander in Rise of Kingdoms. His city conquering skills will make him an exceptional pair to Mehmed II. Other ideal commander is Saladin.
2. Julius Caesar
Julius Caesar’s exceptional buffs and City Conquering Skills make a great synergy with Mehmed II’s skills and abilities. Julius buffs significantly increases Mehmed II’s nuking ability. On top of that, their effectiveness in city conquering improves through Julius’ third skill, City Killer. However, for this pairing, Julius Caesar must be the primary commander to maximize the buffs from his skills.
3. Yi-Seong Gye
Yi-Seong Gye’s powerful nuking ability totally level ups the nuking ability of Mehmed II. Yi-Seong Gye does not only provide additional damage to Mehmed II through his powerful active skill but he also passively increases Mehmed II’s skill damage. Both of their passive skill damage bonus skills will significantly increase their march’s nuking ability.
