Notes: Edit

Of the available skills, Offensive Tactics is key for a primarily melee army, Ranged Tactics key for a primarily ranged army, Defensive Tactics & Maneuvering are always useful, Leadership & Logistics are situational depending on the shard. Logistics becomes useful if you have a very expensive army (for example, an early alliance with Elves or Dwarves can easily mean having more troop slots than you can afford to fill). Leadership becomes useful if Morale is a problem (if you are using low morale troops like Thieves & Assassins, or if the shard is a World of Death.

Notes: Edit

General is the most straightforward to play and is frequently the superior choice thanks to his excellent buffs and the strength of level 5 Commander perks. Tactician, however, will be better for a ranged army, thanks to his class buffs and the added ability to use him as a strong ranged unit. Priest offers very strong magic support, gaining 5 Magic compared to the General's 3, and can be an excellent buffer for the army. Warlord is easily the weakest choice, as you're surrendering a large selection of benefits in order to make the Commander an above-average melee unit.
