Thutmose III – Skills, Talent Tree and Commander Pairs 2022

Thutmose III

Beloved of Thoth

(1479 – 1425 BC) – 54 years


Civilization: Egypt


Thutmose III was a renowned military leader and pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of ancient Egypt, most well known for his military prowess. After officially beginning his reign in 1458 BCE, he began building his empire, progressively expanding his rule to include Syria and Palestine. In 1445 BCE, Thutmose defeated the king of Mitanni in battle, gaining control over the west bank of the Euphrates. Under his military leadership, Egypt grew into an empire that spanned land and sea. Thutmose’s military accomplishments gained him the title of “the Napoleon of ancient Egypt”.

Throughout his entire life, Thutmose was never defeated in battle. Of all the Egyptian dynasties, the Eighteenth Dynasty ruled over the largest territory, had the strongest armies, and lasted longest, and Thutmose III undoubtedly played a critical role in this accomplishment. During his reign, the rulers of Libya and Babylon paid tribute to him, and Palestine and Syria became part of Egyptian territory. He was a brave and highly skilled military leader who led Egypt into an era of unprecedented prosperity.

Review of Commander Thutmose III:

  • Thutmose III is a Legendary Commander that players obtained for free in June 2022 with the launch of the Egypt Civilization, simply by logging in daily for seven days in a row.
  • Other ways to obtain Thutmose III commander sculptures: Tavern (Golden Chest)
  • Relic for Thutmose in Museum is available for purchase – granting 15% increased Attack and Health bonus.
  • If you are free-to-play player, you are better off spending your Legendary Commander Sculptures on other early-game Archer commanders like Yi Seong-Gye (who remains useful later in the game), as Thutmose III will lose competitiveness against other Archer commanders released in later stages of the game (e.g. Boudica Prime, Henry V).
  • Thutmose III is effective against Richard I as he is an Archer talent commander, and has skills that reduce healing and counterattack damage.
  • It is not recommended for you to spend universal legendary commander sculptures on Thutmose III if you are already in Season of Conquest in KvK, as there are other better options. You can consider upgrading Thutmose III if you are in earlier seasons of KvK (KvK 1, 2 and 3) when many players still use Richard I.
  • Thutmose III is better used in enemy or neutral territories as his second skill (Empire Builder) gives his troops increased damage when outside of alliance territory.
