Evony Answers, Series A, B & C: Lead (Primary) Army General Rankings

Updated: 4 days ago

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

WELCOME


Welcome to Evony Answers. Army Generals are a great place to start researching because that's where the most serious errors can be made in Evony. Investing too many hard earned items in the wrong Army General, can be an error that's very costly to fix.


See below for links to discussion on Runestones and Blood of Ares (two of the most difficult items to acquire in Evony).

 
 

INTRODUCTION


When these rankings were first published there were no comprehensive Evony Army General Rankings anywhere else. Other rankings were either incomplete or didn't include any information about relative strength when compared to other Army Generals in the same category.


The EvonyAnswers (EvAns) Attribute Ranking System is geared towards the 99% of players that are not Very Heavy or Crazy Heavy Spenders.



If you are in the Evony 1%, the Attribute Rankings are probably NOT the best for you, you should primarily be using the SUMMARY Rankings.


You're probably in the Evony 1%, if you:

  • Are VIP 18 or above.

  • Have eight (8) or more Dragons.

  • Have opened Level 5 of the Dragon Cliff.

  • Have three (3) or more complete sets of Civilization Gear.

  • You play battlefield every week and your Alliance is typically in the top 20 of your Continent.

  • You play battlefield every week and your Alliance has four (4) or more Very Heavy or Crazy Heavy Spenders.

 

METHODOLOGY


Attribute Ranking Methodology


The EvAns Attribute Ranking System will tend to favor Offense (Attack & March Size) over Toughness (HP & Defense). It also tends to favor Army Generals with good Enemy Debuffs.


There's a multiplier for each Attribute. All the multipliers are applied the same way to all Army General Attributes in each specific category.


Category Scores


The Attributes Scores are broken up into six (6) categories, so that it's possible to calculate different levels of Lead and Assistant Army General development (i.e. 4-Yellow, 3-Orange, 3-Purple, etc.).

  • Basic Attributes Score (BAS) - Leadership, Attack, Defense, & Politics.

  • Base Skill Score (BSS) - Also known as the "Built-In" Skill Score.

  • Four (4) Skill Books (4SB) - The Lead General's score for the best four (4) possible Skill Books: March Size Increase and Primary Attack, HP & Defense Increase.

  • Three (3) Specialties Score (3SS) - As appropriate for that Specific Ranking, i.e. 4-Yellow, 3-Orange, 3-Purple, etc.

  • Fourth (4th) Specialties Score (4SS) - As appropriate for that Specific Ranking, i.e. 4-Yellow.

  • Ascending Enhancement Score (AES) - Only added for the Ascending Enhancement Rankings.

Summary Ranking Methodology


If you are in the Evony 99%, the Attribute Rankings are probably the better for you.


The EvonyAnswers (EvAns) Summary Ranking System is geared towards the 1% of players that are at the very top of the Evony "ladder", they are most likely Very Heavy or Crazy Heavy Spenders.



You're probably in the Evony 1%, if you:

  • Are VIP 18 or above.

  • Have eight (8) or more Dragons.

  • Have opened Level 5 of the Dragon Cliff.

  • Have three (3) or more complete sets of Civilization Gear.

  • You play battlefield every week and your Alliance is typically in the top 20 of your Continent.

  • You play battlefield every week and your Alliance has four (4) or more Very Heavy or Crazy Heavy Spenders.

LEAD GENERAL RANKINGS


Series A, B & C


The list of eleven (11) Army General Categories below is roughly in order of importance, based on a defensively focused keep.


Most people would probably tell you to move Ranged Generals to the top (for better Offense) and move In-City Defense (Main Wall) Generals & Subordinate City PvP Generals (Mayors) down a notch. Or possibly, to switch Ranged Generals and In-City Defense (Main Wall) Generals.


Part 1 - In-City Defense (Main Wall) Lead PvP Generals



Part 2 - Subordinate City PvP Generals (Mayors)



Part 3 - Ranged Lead PvP Generals



Part 4 - Mounted Lead PvP Generals



Part 5 - Mounted Lead PvM Pushing Generals



Part 6 - Ground Lead PvP Generals



Part 7 - Mounted Lead PvM Treasure Generals



Part 8 - Resource Gathering Generals



Part 9 - Duty Officer Generals



Part 10 - Siege Lead PvP Generals



Part 11 - Peace-Time Generals


 

OTHER RESOURCES


Good Information Resources


In addition to these lists, please look at other lists and do your own research, so you can make up your own mind. After all, this is only one person’s opinion.


Other Good Evony Information Resources:

 

DEVELOPING SPECIALTIES


Developing Army General Specialties and Runestone Chests


The biggest mistake that can be made in Evony is taking the wrong Army General to four (4) maximum level (4-Yellow) Specialties. Be VERY CAREFUL about which generals you decide to take to 4-Yellow Specialties.



Please check out the article below for more information on:





 

DEVELOPING ASCENDING ENHANCEMENTS


Developing Army General Ascending Enhancement (Awakened)


The 2nd biggest mistake that can be made in Evony is taking the wrong Army General to ten (10) Stars or maximum Ascending Enhancements. Be VERY CAREFUL about which generals you decide to take to ten (10) Stars.
