Osman Gazi, also known as Osman I, was the leader of the Ottoman Turks and the founder of the dynasty that established and ruled the Ottoman Empire. After the death of his father in 1281, at which time Osman was just 23 years old, he took up the leadership of the Kayi Clan. Soon after, mercenaries from all over the Islamic world began streaming into his realm to join the fight against the Orthodox Empire. In 1301, Osman successfully defeated a large Byzantine force and began putting pressure on Byzantine-controlled areas. This alarmed the Byzantines, who quickly fled the Anatolian countryside. Byzantium’s leaders were determined to prevent Osman from crossing into Europe and attempted to check his westward expansion. Osman continued to press on, however, and soon captured the Byzantine city of Ephesus. This brought another massive, diverse influx of migrants, warriors, and adventurers into Ottoman territory.

Osman was both a skilled commander and an able administrator. He expanded his realm through policies of tolerance and cooperation with Greek Christians. The Greeks welcomed the order, stability, and security that Osman’s rule brought, which came at a time when the central administration in Constantinople was slowly falling into disarray. Free from government interference, Greeks and Turks began to marry and create families, and eventually, a large number of Christians adopted the Muslim faith. Religious tolerance became the defining characteristic of the Ottoman Empire for the next 600 years.

Best Builds For Osman I

So, we have here two builds for the open field – one heavily involving the Skill Tree and the other one using the Leadership Tree – and also one conquering build if you want to use Osman to attack other players’ cities.

Open Field Skill Tree Talent Build

Here’s the Skill Tree build and I personally like this one a little more because the additional rage for the rage engine works really smooth:

The first thing you want to get for this build is Rejuvenate in the Skill Tree for various reasons.

First, you will get 150 rage whenever Osman or the secondary commander will use the active skill so that’s 300 rage in total which will fill your rage to one third instantly after each skill usage and lower the time you need to pop your primary skill from 10 seconds (first time) to about 6 seconds after that.

Also, you will pick up Burning Blood for more rage on the way and All For One that will boost your secondary commander that normally also uses an active skill that deals direct damage.

Now it’s time to get even more rage and you should now complete the other side of the Skill Tree to finally unlock Feral Nature which also brings more additional rage – with this build you’ll be cycling through the active skill so fast and deal such a high amount of damage that you will have so much fun with Osman int he open field!

Next up, you should hit the Leadership Tree and make your way up to Strategic Prowess and this is where the magic happens.

Not only will you pick up Hidden Wrath on your way, which also gives you even more additional rage, you will also get a huge defensive boost here.

With all the additional rage you will see the primary skill cycling in around 3-5 seconds, depending how Feral Nature pops and you will get 20% extra defense for 2 seconds each time the skill is used – so you will basically run 80% of the time with that extra defense which makes it the great additionl to the rage you get from the Skill Tree.

The last points then go into Fresh Recruits and you can spend them in Armed To The Teeth and Armored To The Teeth as you want to.

Open Field Leadership Tree Talent Build

This is an alternative talent tree build that you can use for Osman int he open field – it’s more a basic build that will strengthen your army but I found that it won’t perform as well as the build above. Still, if you like consistency, this is also a viable build to use:

You will also get Rejuvenate first in the Skill Tree as explained above, for the same reasons. You can’t afford to not get that extra rage with Osman that will let you pop your primary skill so much more frequently.

From here you will hit the Leadership Tree and go for Strategic Prowess to get this defensive buff. It won’t be active that frequently as in the build above but still often enough to strengthen your army a lot.

Next you should get Close Formation for a nice attack bonus when the fights get towards the end. You’ll be running around with Osman anyway so chances are high that you will get below 50% strength at some point.

Now Armored To The Teeth and Armed To The Teeth are nice static buffs that will help and are no-brainer to get here.

Last points should now be spent for Tactical mastery to get some more skill damage done and Heraldic Shield to get less skill damage. I also would go to get Naked Rage because you have enough talents that lower the skill damage you get and with such a high skill damage you#re dealing this is still a positive trade-off for you.

Rallying Cities Build

If you like to hit cities with Osman, you should work with this build here:

You want to get all the way through the Conquering Tree here to unlock Meteor Shower, which is working great when hitting a city. The talents that you pick up on your way are all kind of helpful, although none of them are superior to give you any recommendation which one to pick first.

Next you want to go into the Skill Tree and get Rejuvenate. If you have scrolled over the upper builds and haven’t read why Rejuvenate is so strong with Osman, you should do that to understand why it’s a must-have talent in every build for him.

Last points then should go into the Leadership Tree to get Hidden Wrath for some extra rage and get the march speed points there. They can become very useful in case something goes wrong with your rally and you want to get away faster.
