Wu Zetian ’s Skills
1st – Mandate of Heaven
Rage Requirement: 1000
Deal direct damage to a single target and heal a portion of your amry’s wounded troops.
Direct Damage Factor: 500 / 600 / 700 / 800 / 1000
Healing Factor: 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500
This a unique skill that no other commander has! It’s a combination of direct damage and healing, provides quite a significant nuke a pretty significant heal for garrison. You definitely want to max this first before you go to the second skill!
2nd – Lion Rider
When commanding the garrison, all garrison troops’ damage is increased, and the damage caused rally attacks is increased.
Damage Bonus: 2% / 4% / 6% / 8% / 10%
Damage to Rallied Armies Increased: 2% / 4% / 6% / 8% / 10%
You will get a 20% damage bonus in total if you get rallied. This is an excellent skill in so many situations, especially in Ark of Osiris when you can get attacked by multiple rallies at once. This is probably the best skill for the garrison that is in the game because the raw amount of damage you can put out.
3rd – Tears of Blood
Increase the HP and Defence of troops under your command. Your troops’ attacks have a 10% chance to silence their target for 2 seconds.
Defense Bonus: 2% / 4% / 6% / 8% / 10%
Troop Health: 2% / 4% / 6% / 8% / 10%
Providing a crowd control effect is super sweet. Herman has this effect also, but it is his primary skill and he has to wait 5 seconds to activate it. Here, Wu Zetian has it as a passive skill. If you get attacked by multiple armies at once, the chance of triggering this CC is a lot higher.
You will also want to max this skill before unlocking the next skill.
4th – Legacy
When commanding the garrison, incoming skill damage is reduced. Your troops have a 50% chance to increase their Defense for 3 seconds when they take skill damage.
Skill Damage Taken Reduction: 3% / 5% / 8% / 11% / 15%
Defense Bonus: 5% / 8% / 11% / 15% / 20%
Another “damage reduction” skill! Another “defense bonus”!
50% chance is actually very high because you always get attacked by active skills twice, so you should always have this skill triggered during the battles.
Expertise – Brightest Sky
New Passive Skill
Counterattack damage +20%. Incoming attacks have a 10% chance to deal damage to the attacker (Damage Factor 500).
We have a lot of buffs for the counterattacks here. The 10% chance seems to be small but if you get swarmed, it will be huge.
Commander Parings with Wu Zetian
For Wu Zetian being the main primary garrison commander!
Yi Seong Gye
I love the synergy of all of her skills with the support tree over YSG skills because you’re gonna be firing stuff off like crazy!
With YSG second skill having a hundred percent damage increase in a rage regeneration bonus and then on top of that you can you’ve got all the damage that YSG provides alongside of the bonuses that he will give Wu in combination with her skill damage. You’ve got heals and everything.
I really like Wu + YSG combo!
He’s really geared around garrison as well and he does get that heal nicely due to his forth skill increasing skill damage reduction by a significant amount.
His first skill being such a great debuff and buff.
The extra health that the infantry inside of your city will use is very nice. It all stacks together really well.
The double tanky combination of Wu and Charles works really well.
Not only are you getting all that super tankyness from those skills and talent trees but also you get actual shield from Charles alongside of the additional counter
attack damage, all the extra bonuses.
This is a great combo for city defense!
You will get 30-40% incoming skill damage reduction, 1,700 skill damage on every single nuke, healing effect reduction applied to the enemies. Especially If it’s an infantry rally, you would want to give Wu Saladin a try.
The reason being he’s got a rage regeneration bonus. He would trigger all those healing effects. He got a really solid nuke ability.
His skills work really well in conjunction with the talent builds for Wu Zetian we mentioned above.
Open Field Fight Parings
I don’t recommend necessarily using her as an open field commander, especially as the primary. You can use her has a secondary commander and be relatively successful especially if you use these commanders as primary.
Best Wu Zetian Talent Trees
There’s quite a few suitable talent builds to craft for Wu Zetian. Depending on your gameplay, preferences and what your goal is with this legendary commander. She can play any of these best talent builds as long as she remains the garrison commander. In this part, you have three choices to choose from: Garrison, Anti-Nuker and Counterattack talent builds.
Garrison Talent Build
This is one of the most popular talent build for Wu Zetian. Basically, it focuses on building rage fast enough to dish out moderate amount of damage, while healing her troops. Additionally, the healing effects is increased by approximately 20% which means the standard 500 healing points becomes 600. A nice boost to her combat capabilities. Good talent build for those who wants a tanky garrison commander with expanded troop capacity.
Other we can build another Talent, The point of this build is give you as much rage regeneration, skill damage reductoin and many trigger effects of the first skill as possible. We also get more heal profitable stuff from the leadership talent tree as well.
Anti-Nuker Talent Build
This talent build ignores the troop capacity bonus and the +10% healing bonus effect in exchange for a greatly reduced damage taken from skills. We know how annoying these nukers can be sometimes when they just plow through your defenses easily. So, why not build an anti-nuker Wu Zetian with this talent build? This build will ultimately reduce the overall skill damage taken by roughly 55% which is a really massive boost to her defense capabilities and leaves the nukers to bite the dust.
Counterattack Talent Build
If you prefer to maintain expanded troop capacity and increased army strength. Then you will like this talent build because it takes advantage of improved rage generation speed and healing effect. At the same time, she gains a small shield that helps her shed off some of the incoming damage while healing her troops. A solid talent build for players who wants accelerated rage generation and increased troops damage using mixed armies.
