This is the complete guide to Commander Sculptures and Skill Upgrades in Rise of Kingdoms.
Before going deeply into the details, I want to let you know the value of the commander sculpture and how to use them wisely to make your commanders more powerful.
Commander sculptures are usually used to call upon new commanders and to upgrade their skills. They can also be used to help commanders gain more stars but it’s rarely suggested.
It takes 10 commander sculptures to summon a new commander. Subsequently, this charge will increase as your rank sees an upward trend. Luckily, getting commander sculptures is just a piece of cake. You can attain these sculptures through Silver Chest and Golden Chest. I highly suggest that you should join a top alliance to get free silver keys and golden keys from whales.
There are two types of commander sculptures:
Universal Sculptures (which you can trade for any commander sculptures)

How to Upgrade Skills using Commander Sculptures
Using commander sculptures has another advantage is upgrading the commander’s skills with them. As your rank is up, the cost of using commander sculptures increases and your power grows in relative. Thus, it is crucial that you maximize your commanders’ skills to use them to their fullest potential.
Here is a simple guide to show you how many commander sculptures are needed to gain more skill points. If you plan to put aside sculptures for trading a particular commander, this guide will be helpful.
Specific Commander Sculptures
Specific Commander Sculptures just like Universal Commander Sculptures which can be used to upgrade skills. However, specific commander sculptures can do one thing that universal commander sculptures can’t and that is summoning the commanders.
You can attain these advanced commanders from numerous events and missions at the beginning of the game. And also, you can get them through Silver Chests.
You can get these elite commander sculptures from various events and expeditions. They also can be obtained in Silver Chests.
These epic commander sculptures can be obtained from various events and expeditions. They also can be obtained in Silver Chests and Golden Chests.
These legendary commander sculptures can be achieved from different events and expeditions. You can also get them from Special Privilege Chests, VIP Stores, Silver Chests and Golden Chests.
How to Get More Commander Sculptures?
If you are a free-to-free player who doesn’t plan to spend any money on charging chests and other goods, there are some methods to more commander sculptures but these require doing things like farming, upgrading your buildings and accomplishing missions. If you are a F2P player, this is how you can get more commanders:
- Join in a top alliance where the whales are.
- Complete Missions
- Accomplish expeditions.
- Open daily chests.
- Take in the events.
But if you are a whale and you want to spend more money on getting these commander sculptures, VIP Shop is the best place where you can exchange for specific commanders that you want to summon and upgrade their skills.
Tips for Using Commander Sculptures
Before using any of these sculptures to your commander, I highly suggest that you should wait for them for a while, which likely to take 2 to 3 weeks at the beginning of your game. This will give you a chance to see how the game rolls for you and gives you a good starting point to use your commander sculptures.
I also recommend choosing a commander that you want to use and stick on the power to upgrade the commander until you maximize him/ her. Use the Star Trick to spend fewer Starlight Sculptures so that you can maximize the commanders faster.
A high-level commander is much more valuable than a low-level commander because the higher one is able to make further progress in the Expedition Mode, do more steps in Karauk Ceremony and even will help you win extreme battles in both Ian’s Ballads and Ceroli Crisis. This is one of the best ways to increase your total power rapidly.
One of the early mistakes that some players make is spending their commander sculptures immediately without seeing the whole picture first. Therefore, sometimes they aren’t so lucky and get stuck with a low-level commander. You should avoid that by spending time storing your commander sculptures and determining where to go so that you can max it out in a few weeks.
