Evony: Blazons... What's Up With That?

Updated: Nov 6

Are Blazons confusing? Yes, absolutely!



Let's break it down and go step-by-step.

 

The Basics


There's a viewing/leveling interface available in the "Items" screen under the "Blazon" tab. There's a gray "Sort By" button in the upper right corner. Choose "Troops" . The other two choices, "Acquired Time" and "Level" just make it more confusing.


This sorts them into four (4) groups:

  • Circle icon for Ground Troops

  • Triangle icon for Ranged Troops

  • Diamond icon for Mounted Troops

  • Hexagon icon for Siege Troops

NOTE: If a Blazon is used in ANY PRESET, make sure it's LOCKED, so it doesn't accidentally get used to upgrade another Blazon.

 

Equipping Blazons

To equip the Blazons, there's an interface screen that can be accessed in any of the four (4) troop buildings (Barracks, Archer Camp, Stables, & Workshop), click on one of the buildings, and then click the "Blazon" button.


NOTE: If a Blazon is used in ANY PRESET, make sure it's LOCKED, so it doesn't accidentally get used to upgrade another Blazon.

 

Types of Blazons


There are six (6) Blazon slots for each of the four (4) troop types.


The six (6) Blazon slots correspond to the six (6) types of Blazons:

  • Earth

  • Wind

  • Fire

  • Ocean

  • Light

  • Shadow


Each of the six (2) types above, belongs in one (1) of two (2) Sets:


Troop Type Attacking Set Defending Set


Ground Troops: Justice Set or Sacrifice Set

Ranged Troops: Valor Set or Compassion Set

Mounted Troops: Honor Set or Soul Set (PvM - Monsters)

Siege Troops: Honesty Set or Humility Set


So total, there are 48 types of Blazons (4 troop types x 6 Blazon types x 2 Sets). They group into eight (8) Sets with six (6) Blazons each.


Each Blazon randomly generates at Level 1 with two (2) Attributes.

NOTE: If a Blazon is used in ANY PRESET, make sure it's LOCKED, so it doesn't accidentally get used to upgrade another Blazon.

 

Step 1 - Assemble the Eight (8) Sets


The eight (8) Set bonuses are huge and pretty easy to get. Just find one (1) of each type of Blazon, the level and quality of the Blazon don't matter. Mix the (2) sets if you need to, just get all 24 slots filled as soon as possible.


Equip the Sets in the Blazon Interface Screen:



For Multiple Sets, you'll need to set-up the presets in the upper left corner. Very similar to the way Monarch Gear Presets work.


NOTE: If a Blazon is used in ANY PRESET, make sure it's LOCKED, so it doesn't accidentally get used to upgrade another Blazon.

 

Step 2 - Find a Good Blazon of Each Type


This will be the hardest step, I'd say about one (1) in 100-200 will be good. The rest will be garbage and used for leveling up the good Blazons.


Just like Refining Gear or Refining Dragons, some Attributes are good, some are mediocre, and some are bad.



A good Blazon has two (2) of the best attributes (that are listed in the previous section), like:

  • Ranged Attack Increase

  • Marching Ranged Attack Increase

OR

  • Defending Ground HP Increase

  • Ground HP Increase

OR

  • Marching Mounted Defense Increase

  • Mounted Defense Increase

OR

  • Siege Attack Increase

  • Defending Siege Attack Increase


NOTE: When you find a good Blazon, hit the "lock" Button in the upper right corner to make sure you don't accidentally use it to level up another Blazon.



A mediocre Blazon has two (2) different Attributes both with Limiting Modifiers, like:

  • Marching Ranged Attack Increase

  • Ranged Attack Increase on Monsters

OR

  • In-Rally Ground HP Increase

  • Reinforcing Ground HP Increase

OR

  • Mounted Defense Increase on
