Age of Empires Castle Siege Wiki

"Alexander fought for the prince of Kiev and defeated invasions by the German and Swedish people to keep Kiev independent."


Offensive Strategy

  • Use Alexander's Scorched Earth special ability to temporarily launch flaming projectiles that ignite their targets and any surrounding buildings or troops.
  • Alexander is arguably the best hero. Use his ability to cause huge destruction to an enemy's base. Aim for towers and trebuchet emplacements.
  • Make sure to use a distraction unit to draw fire away from Nevsky.
  • When using Scorched Earth, attack different targets to spread the fire damage around.
  • With or without his ability turned on, use Nevsky to attack a wall or building in front of a tower. If you do this correctly, he can use area damage to destroy the towers whilst being out of the towers range.
