However, because of this reason, Joan is the first target to be attacked by enemies at all times. Therefore, we have to find out the way to build a strong-buff and flexible Joan of Arc. This article will help you to solve this matter.

Descent of the Goddess

Upgrade: In the next 2 seconds, Joan of Arc grants her army and nearby allies a strong buff that helps increase 30% of infantry units’ health, 30% of cavalry units’ defense and 30% of archer units’ attack. Additionally, she also gains 50 rage bonus every second.

  • Skill 1: This is the powerful AOE buff effect that makes Joan of Arc famous. This skill is the reason why Joan should present in all fights. However, this buff doesn’t stack, which means if there are more than 1 Joan of Arc in your team in a battle, then when this skill is activated, it will be “overwritten” on Joan’s previous buff, rather than adding 2 together.
  • Skill 4: This skill does not only affect attack but also affect counter-attack.
  • Descent of the Goddess: This skill is an extremely powerful buff of Joan. You should try your best to maximize Joan as fast as you can to unlock this buff course.

For Gathering

  1. Upgrade her to 2 stars immediately, you should have her at levels 18-20 until Skill 2 is maxed. If you want to use Joan in the early game, the first 2 skills should be maximized.
  2. Upgrade to 3 stars and maintain at level 27, maximize Skill 3.
  3. Upgrade to 4 stars if you have enough sculptures and experience books to level up at 37.
  4. In addition, you can also upgrade her to 4 stars after maximizing the first 2 skills, if you want Joan to fight straightway.

For Combat

  1. Keep her at 1 star till Skill 1 is max.
  2. Upgrade to 4 stars and gradually maximize other skills.
  3. If you only tend to use Joan as a Secondary Commander, just maintain her at level 37 to optimize assemble skill. The next upgrade depends on whether you continue to use her as Primary Commander or not.
