Guan Yu Commander Pairings

Since active skill damage gets reduced when Guan is being used as secondary, it makes more sense to use him as primary commander only. There is a number of commanders that can be used as a secondary commander to Guan.

  • Legendzry Scipio Africanus – Leonida used to be the best pair for Guan Yu now that position is changed by new infantry commander Legendary Scipio Africanus. Both commanders compliment each other nicely and do tons of damage together.
  • Leonidas– Great AOE, survivability, and rage gain speed, lacks March speed
  • Cheok Jun-gyeong– deals more damage than Leonidas but also takes more damage in return.
  • Alexander the great– Guan could be little squishy, but Alex can provide Tankiness and March speed.
  • Harald Sigurdsson – Good infantry rally option as secondary to Guan Yu
  • Sun Tzu– free-to-play/low-budget option with good AOE skill damage output.
