EvonyAnswers, Series G & H: Army General Equipment (Gear) Analysis

Updated: Feb 17

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

INTRODUCTION


Civilization Gear has replaced Achaemenidae Gear as the top equipment for most types of Army Generals.


But, many Achaemenidae pieces can be reused on Subordinate City PvP Generals (Mayors), see Part 2 of the Army General Rankings Series, and Part 7 of the Army General Equipment Analysis Series for more information.

 
 

CIVILIZATON SCROLLS


Civilization Scrolls


Each piece of Civilization Equipment requires a Civilization Scroll to start crafting the item. Each Civilization Scroll requires thirty (30) Civilization Scroll Fragments before the fragments can be composed into a Civilization Scroll that is useable for crafting.

 

OBTAINING CIVILIZATION SCROLL FRAGMENTS


King's Party


The King's Party (spending activity) is the primary way of obtaining Civilization Scroll Fragments. A full set of thirty (30) scroll fragments for two (2) pieces of a Civilization Set are typically available during a Special Event.

  • Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Conquest) - Typically available at Level 4 of the King's Party. Level 4 is available for spending around $200 US in the same Special Event (usually a 10-13 day time period).

  • Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Supremacy) - Typically available at Level 10 of the King's Party. Level 10 is available for spending around $2,100 US in the same Special Event (usually a 10-13 day time period).

Each Civilization Scroll Chest obtained from the King's Party enables selecting thirty (30) Civilization Gear Scroll Fragments from any of the fourteen (14) Civilization Sets.


Spinning for Fragments


Another way to obtain Civilization Scroll Fragments are the Spinner Activities. Each spin allows players win either one (1) Civilization Scroll Fragment Chest or a full set of thirty (30) fragments.


There have been several iterations of Spinner Activities introduced:

 

CIVILIZATION SCROLL FRAGMENTS & CHESTS


Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests


Two types of Civilization Scroll Fragments & Chests:

  • Conquest Civilization Scroll Fragments & Chests

    • Special (Ring)

    • Helmet

    • Leg Armor

  • Supremacy Civilization Scroll Fragments & Chests

    • Weapon

    • Armor

    • Boots


It appears that the Tyche's Wheel of Fortune has been deemed unworkable by the game designers and has been replaced with the Wheel of Civilization (WOC). It's pretty much the same activity, but instead of specific Civilization Gear Scroll Fragments, the new Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests are available.


Each Civilization Scroll Fragment Chest, obtained from the Wheel of Civilization (WOC), enables selecting one (1) Civilization Gear Scroll Fragment from any of the first eleven (11) Civilization Sets.


  • Sets currently available in the WOC Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Conquest & Supremacy):

    • Plantagenet Set - Ranged/Mounted PvP

    • Freedom Hero Set - Siege/Ranged PvP

    • Furinkazan Set - Ground PvP

    • Han Dynasty Set - Mounted PvP

    • Koryo Set - In-City Defense (Main Wall) PvP

    • Rurik Set - Mounted/Ground PvM

    • Abbas Set - Siege/Sub-City PvP

    • Bourbon Set - Mounted PvP

    • Augustus Set - Siege/Sub-City PvP

    • Antonine Set - Ground/Mounted PvP

    • Heian Set - Siege PvP


  • Sets currently NOT available in the WOC Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Conquest & Supremacy):

    • Thebes Set - Ranged PvP

    • Aztec Set - Ground PvP

    • Sassanian Set - Ranged/Siege PvP

 

AMPLIFY CIVILIZATION GEAR


Amplifying Civilization Gear (adding Diamond Stars 6-10)


Overall, Civilization Gear Amplification is actually easier than I thought it would be, and the bonuses are smaller I was expecting.


Of course, Amplifying Conquest Gear will be much easier than Amplifying Supremacy Gear. So, the Special Slot on your most often used Gear Set, is probably going to be the best place to start. For most players, that's probably the Ranged PvP Set or In-City Defense (Main Wall) Set, and for more advance players, that's probably the Ground PvP Set.


Amplification Requirements


Star Level Gear Fragments Meteoric Stones

6 8 100

7 12 160

8 16 220

9 24 320

10 30 400


Total 90 1,200


Star Atlas


The Star Atlas provides another opportunity for adding small bonuses to the Civilization Gear Set.


Each Amplified (Diamond) Star achieved also provides one (1) opportunity to improve the Star Atlas. There are five (5) Stars times six (6) pieces of gear in each set, so thirty (30) opportunities to improve the Star Atlas. There are fifteen (15) Stars locations in the Star Atlas, so each location will probably have two (2) levels.

 

FUTURE POSSIBILITIES


Future Possibilities for Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests


It's possible Evony will make Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests available from Boss Monster drops sometime before the end of 2023. I suspect the Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests will only drop occasionally, and only from B18 or B19 Boss Monsters (Ammit and Styphalian Bird).

  • The chance for Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Conquest) to drop will probably be around 3-5%.

  • The chance for Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Supremecy) to drop will probably be around 1-2%.

 

EQUIPMENT ANALYSIS

It seems like, for now at least, they have stopped at fourteen (14) Civilization Sets, but who knows... at some point they may keep going to twenty-one (21), twenty-eight (28), or maybe just keep going forever. Yuck!!


Having too many Civilization Sets is going to be very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very irritating!! Similar to having too many "very's" in the previous sentence.

 

TYCHE'S WHEEL OF FORTUNE (RETIRED)


Tyche's Wheel of Fortune (Retired)


The "Tyke's Wheel of Fortune" activity, seems like a reasonable way to accumulate Civilization Scroll Fragments during the Holiday Special Events (i.e. Women's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, Easter, etc.). It seems like one (1) pieces will be more common and one (1) piece will be less common.


1st Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Results


During the 2022 Saint Patrick's Day Event starting on 03-11-2022 the following fragments were available:

  • Plantagenet Boots Scroll Fragments (More Common)

  • Plantagenet Leg Armor Scroll Fragments (Less Common)

During this event I was spending $35-$45/day, and estimate about 900 spin chances were received:

  • Plantagenet Boots Scroll Fragments: 41 -15 = 26 = 2.88% chance per spin

  • Plantagenet Leg Armor Scroll Fragments: 28 - 15 = 13 = 1.44% chance per spin

Fifteen (15) of both fragments were available for reaching 500 spins. So, through spinning I received twenty-six (26) Plantagenet Boots Scroll Fragments and thirteen (13) Plantagenet Leg Armor Scroll Fragments.


2nd Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Results


During the 2022 Easter Event starting on 04-06-2022 the following fragments were available:

  • Plantagenet Ring Scroll Fragments (More Common)

  • Plantagenet Golden Bow Scroll Fragments (Less Common)

During this event we were spending about $5/day on my wife's account, and received 301 spin chances:

  • Plantagenet Ring Scroll Fragments: 16 - 5 = 11 = 3.65% chance per spin

  • Plantagenet Golden Bow Scroll Fragments: 9 - 5 = 4 = 1.33% chance per spin

Fifteen (15) of both fragments were available for reaching 500 spins, and five (5) of both fragments were available for reaching 250 spins. So, through spinning I received eleven (11) Plantagenet Ring Scroll Fragments and four (4) Plantagenet Golden Bow Scroll Fragments.


3rd Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Results


During the 2022 Fire Festival Event starting on 05-20-2022 the following fragments were available:

  • Plantagenet Helmet Scroll Fragments (More Common)

  • Plantagenet Armor Scroll Fragments (Less Common)

During this event I was spending about $75-$85/day, and received 1330 spin chances:

  • Plantagenet Helmet Scroll Fragments: 65 - 10 = 55 = 4.14% chance per spin

  • Plantagenet Armor Scroll Fragments: 25 - 10 = 15 = 1.13% chance per spin

Ten (10) of both fragments were available for reaching 800 spins. So, through spinning I received fifty-five (55) Plantagenet Helmet Scroll Fragments and fifteen (15) Plantagenet Armor Scroll Fragments.


4th Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Results


During the recent 2022 Midsummer Event starting on 06-17-2022 the following fragments were available:

  • Furinkazan Bracers Scroll Fragments (More Common)

  • Furinkazan Boots Scroll Fragments (Less Common)

During this event I was spending about $75-$85/day, and received 1192 spin chances:

  • Furinkazan Bracer Scroll Fragments: 49 - 10 = 39 = 3.27% chance per spin

  • Furinkazan Boots Scroll Fragments: 31 - 10 = 21 = 1.76% chance per spin

Ten (10) of both fragments were available for reaching 800 spins. So, through spinning I received thirty-nine (39) Furinkazan Bracers Scroll Fragments and twenty-one (21) Furinkazan Boots Scroll Fragments.


5th Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Results


During the recent 2022 Running of the Bulls Event starting on 07-15-2022 the following fragments were available:

  • Freedom Hero Helmet Scroll Fragments (More Common)

  • Gentleman's Rapier Sword Scroll Fragments (Less Common)

During this event I was spending about $75-$85/day, and received 1,240 spin chances:

  • Freedom Hero Helmet Scroll Fragments: 52 - 10 = 42 = 3.39% chance per spin

  • Gentleman's Rapier Sword Scroll Fragments: 21 - 10 = 11 = 0.88% chance per spin

Ten (10) of both fragments were available for reaching 800 spins. So, through spinning I received forty-two (42) Freedom Hero Helmet Scroll Fragments and eleven (11) Gentleman's Rapier Sword Scroll Fragments.


Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Summary


The latest results are back to pointing towards a 3.0% chance for the more common piece, and 1.5% chance for the less common piece. If that's the case it would take around 1,350 spins to collect thirty (30) of the less common scroll fragments. So, that probably takes spending around $95-$105/day, or buying four (4) event packages/day ($85/day) six (6) days/week and buying five (5) event packages ($185/day) one (1) day/week.


Tyche's Wheel of Fortune Full Rotation


It appears that two (2) Civilization Equipment Scroll Fragments will be available during a Holiday Special Event once per month, and that it will rotate until all pieces have been available once, then the rotation will start over again. There are forty-two (42) total Civilization Equipment pieces, thus it will take 21 rotations to get through the entire line-up, and will take 22 rotations for each item to repeat in the rotation. That would mean it will take 22 months (1 year, 10 months) for the cycle to repeat itself. If all those assumptions hold true, the Plantagenet Boots Scroll Fragments and Plantagenet Leg Armor Scroll Fragments will be available for a 2nd time on the "Tyke's Wheel of Fortune", sometime in January 2024. Ugh!

 

ASTROLABE


Astrolabe


Another Spinner Activity, the Astrolabe, was introduced around 06-13-2022. The Astrolabe uses Starblue Coins to spin and gain prizes. The first Astrolabe Event offered 30 Furinkazan Katana Scroll Fragments. The Starblue Coins were only available through purchasing of special packages. It was way too expensive for me to play, and only played it once spinning only 10 times for $100 US.


Starblue Coins were more available during the 2022 Midsummer Event starting on 06-17-2022, but the there was no Astrolabe to spin, so all the Starblue Coins turned into Starblue Chests after the Midsummer Event ended. I was able to accumulate 425 Starblue coins through my normal play and spending during the Midsummer Event.


The Astrolabe has appeared regularly (approximately twice per month), but the Starblue Coins have never dropped from Boss Monsters and Resource Gathering again. It's possible the alternate method for obtaining Starblue Coins could be added at some point in the future along with the Astrolabe.


Until then, the chance of get Civilization Scroll Fragments is 1 in 200 spins, so it would be easy to spend $2,000-4,000 US and get zero (0) Civilization Scroll Fragments. No thanks, I'm good.

 

WHEEL OF CIVILIZATION


Wheel of Civilization


In November/December 2022, another Spinner Activity, the Wheel of Civilization (WOC) activity was introduced to replace the now retired Tyche's Wheel of Fortune. It's similar to the Tyche's Wheel of Fortune but, the Civilization Scrolls for specific pieces of Civilization Equipment have been replaced with WOC Civilization Scroll Fragment Chests (Conquest & Supremacy).
