Special Activity -


Super Secret Special Elite Level (Army) Generals - A classification of Army Generals not available in the Tavern, Relic Chamber Rewards, Great General's Chest, or Epic Historic General (Premium) Tolkens. Evony doesn't have an official term for this level of Army Generals, so I had to come up with my own. Evony also does not document this anywhere.


These Army Generals are extremely hard to get, and typically require a Very Heavy Spending Level of at least $200 US/day for the entire duration of a Special Event. Highest level of King's Party or they will sometimes appear in the Knight's Duel Chest during the Trial of Knight's Special Activity.


There are currently fifteen (15) of these Army Generals (of which I'm currently aware):


Subordinate City (Mayors) Generals (in order of quality):

  • Darius I

  • Yeon Gaesomun

  • Amr ibn al-As

  • Nordic Barbarian King

  • Cnut the Great

  • Constantine the Great

  • Flavius Aetius - I think must be an oversight by Evony because he's not nearly good enough to be in this classification of Army Generals.

Duty Officer Generals (in order of quality):

  • Otto the Great

  • Ashoka

  • Maurice of Nassau

  • Stilicho

  • Mikhail Kutuzov

  • Sulla

  • Zhuge Liang - Another one that's not nearly good enough to be in this classification of Army Generals.

In-City Defense (Main Wall) Generals (in order of quality):

  • Yodo-dono - Yet another, that's not nearly good enough to be in this classification of Army Generals.
