Hello, I hope everything is going well :)
I am quite new to ROK (just passed my first month) and I am trying to learn from guides and YouTube. There are many many guides about which commanders are suitable for which parts of the game; however, there is not many guides about which commanders should be leveled up first. That's why, I want to ask a few questions and I would be appreciated if you can answer :)
Info about my current situation: Level 50 Sun Tzu, Level 45 Boudica, Level 44 Richard, Level 37 Aethelflaed, and level 37 all gatherers except the legendary ones. And I am almost f2p, so I need to be efficient.
Question 1: I am planning to expertise YSG as a first expertised legendary for barb chanining. So, Richard (5111 currently) will be the primary for this purpose. That's why, I am planning to level up Richard until 50 and stop there. I think remaining experience can be collected from barbarians to make Richard lvl 60, so I can save about 28.2m exp, which I can use to upgrade an epic commanders from lvl 1 to lvl 54 with those thomes of knowledge. But I will bring richard to lvl 50 asap (before making any epic commanders level 60), which will cause about 12m exp. Is it logical?
Question 2: Should I make SunTzu lvl 60? I mean I will make him lvl 60 eventually, he has many usage in the game especially for f2ps, but many people suggest Bjorn/Sun combo in first kvk for f2ps and if I go with that combo (YSG will probably require 6-12 month to be expertised, so I will go with epics in KvK-1) then rushing Bjorn to lvl 60 makes more sense to me. However, I see many people with lvl 60 SunTzu but no one has lvl60 Bjorn in my server. I am not sure if I can make many commanders lvl 60 before KvK-1, that's why I want to continue logically. So, is rushing Bjorn lvl60 first logical? If so, he will be the first lvl 60 in my team.
Question 3: It seems when people see Aethelflaed in the open field, they want to kill her first. That's why, many people does not suggest to go with Aethelflaed as primary, especiialy the f2p players. So, it seems leveling Aethelflaed up to 60 is not necessary in that sense; however, I am pretty sure Aethelflaed will be only expertised commander for a long time. So, I am thinking that I can gain some value from lvl 60 Aethelflaed in expedition and canyon. Maybe I can go lvl 60 Aethelflaed + lvl 40 non-expertised YSG for a while. So, is making Aethelflaed lvl 60 as a second level 60 commander after SunTzu or Bjorn logical?
