How should I use Sciopio Africanus?

  • Keep at 1 star until the first skill is maximum
  • Then upgrade to 2 stars and maximize the second skill
  • After that, upgrade to 4 stars and then maximize all the skill remaining. The most effective is to have the third skill been max at last.
  • If players want to use Scipio as a secondary commander, keep at 4 stars and up the level for him. If using him as a primary commander, maximize up to 5 or 6 stars.
  • Moreover, players can up to 4 stars immediately after boost the first skill (it can be done directly from 1 star if players have full stars). If Scipio is just played for solo battle, this way is quite effective.
