Rise of Kingdoms: Lapulapu – Skills, Talent Trees and Best Pairings


The Shorestone Shield

Rarity: LEGENDARY

Civilization: The Philippines

Talents:

Lapulapu was the datu (chief) of Mactan Island, located in the Visayas archipelago in what is now the Philippines. When Ferdinand Magellan arrived in the region in 1521, Lapulapu refused to pay homage or tribute to the Spanish Empire or its local allies. On April 27, 1521, in response to this act of defiance, Magellan attacked Mactan with a force of 49 soldiers . Lapulapu fought back fiercely, defeated Magellan (who was slain in the battle) and driving the Spanish from the island.

Lapulapu then left Mactan with his family and friends, thereafter disappearing from the history records. One local legend states that he actually turned into a stone on the shores of Mactan , and has been silently guarding the island ever since.

Review of Lapulapu:

  • Ways to obtain this Commander’s sculptures: The Mightiest Governor event (“MGE”)
  • Lapulapu is best used as a City Garrison Commander in ROK against enemy rallies.
  • When running Lapulapu against an oncoming enemy rally on your city, be sure to send your lower-tier troops out of your city so that your hospitals are ideally filled with severely wounded troops that are of the highest-tier in your city (if your hospitals are filled with your tier 1 troops, this means your tier 4 or 5 troops will die when your hospitals are full). You can send your lower tier troops out of your city by launching a long duration barbarian fort rally, or marching them to the nearest coalition flag.
