Part 10/12 - Siege General Rankings [PvP]

Updated: Sep 24

Army General Analysis - PART 10, reviewing Siege Generals for PvP.


An important thing to know about Siege PvP Attack Marches, is that any other troop type works well for secondary damage (similar to how Siege Troops are good secondary damage for any other troop type).

 

Specialty Level for Rankings:


This Army General Category has been ranked by the 4-Yellow Specialty Score that is used for the "Primary Six (6)" Army Generals. See the Developing Army General Specialties in this article for more information.


The primary six (6) army generals are:

  1. Ranged General Rankings [Primary PvP]

  2. In-City Defense (Main Wall) General Rankings [PvP]

  3. Mounted Generals - Monster Killing for Pushing [PvM]

  4. Ground Generals [PvP]

  5. Siege Generals [PvP]

  6. Mounted General Rankings [PvP]

If the 4-Yellow Specialties Ranking is not realistic for your keep, see the 3-Orange Specialty Rankings and/or the 3-Purple Specialty Rankings that have been included below the primary list.

  5. Siege Range Increase: +0% (+200 w/ Skill Book)

  6. March Size Increase: +10% (+22% w/ Skill Book)

  7. Siege Defense Increase: +10%

  8. Dragon: Not Required

  9. Acquisition: Relatively EASY (at Tavern Level 27 and above), probably the 13th best option available in the Tavern.

  10. Culture: America

  11. Introduced: First introduced before January, 2018, as Robert E. Lee, he was changed to Casimir Pulaski in May, 2022.

  12. Recommended Specialty Level: None, he’s not worth investing Runestones because there are vastly superior choices available in the Tavern and as Relic Chamber Rewards.


20. Raged King – Grade: D (52.4% - 259) – Weak Basic Attribute scores and weak Siege Damage Buffs combine to make him a weaker Siege PvP option. Not the best option for PvP siege, but he’s probably better than any general not listed.

  1. Specialist Against: Any type of opponent.

  2. Strongest Buffs (at 4-Yellow Specialties Level):

  3. Siege Attack Increase: +10% (+55% w/ Skill Book and All Troop Attack Increase)

  4. All Troop Attack Increase: +20%

  5. Siege Range Increase: +0% (+200 w/ Skill Book)

  6. March Size Increase: +0% (+12% w/ Skill Book)

  7. Siege HP Increase: +10%

  8. Dragon: Not Required

  9. Acquisition: EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, since he’s only available on the Wheel of Fortune, and the chances of getting him are about 1 in 50,000 spins.

  10. Culture: Other

  11. Introduced: Unknown (before January, 2018)

  12. Recommended Specialty Level: None, he’s not worth investing Runestones because there are vastly superior choices available in the Tavern and as Relic Chamber Rewards.

Dragons for Siege PvP Generals:


Whenever possible, dragons should be placed on PvP Generals (mostly because moving dragons is a pain in the butt). VERY few players have five (5) dragons, so the dragons should be assigned as follows:

  1. Ranged PvP - Celtic Demon (1st Dragon - Red) or upgrade to Ladon (6th Dragon - Turquoise)

  2. Mounted PvP - Fafnir (2nd Dragon - Purple) or upgrade to Nidhogg (5th Dragon - Dark Blue)

  3. In-City Defense (Main Wall) - Dragon of Thebes (4th Dragon - Gold)

  4. Ground PvP - Norway Ridge (3rd Dragon - Light Blue) or upgrade to Amaterasu (7th Dragon - White)

  5. Siege PvP - Fafnir (2nd Dragon - Purple) or upgrade to Colchian (8th Dragon - Green)

  6. Mounted PvM for Pushing - Fafnir (2nd Dragon - Purple)

  7. Subordinate City Battle (PvP) - Norway Ridge (3rd Dragon - Light Blue)

If Nidhogg (5th Dragon - Dark Blue) can be obtained by reaching the Top 200 in the regular season of Battle of Chalons, then the Fafnir (on Mounted PvP) can be replaced and re-assigned to the Siege PvP General, because it also provides extra Siege Attack Bonuses. But Top 100 in BoC typically requires being a HEAVY spender, spending enough to buy four (4) packages per day (or about US $85/day or about US $2,500-$5,000/month).


Additionally, the Fafnir can be replaced by the Colchian, if the 2nd round of All-Star Battlefield can be reached. But that typically requires being a VERY HEAVY spender, spending enough to buy five (5) packages per day (or about US $185/day or about US $5,000-$6,000/month).


At that point, the Fafnir can be re-assigned to the Mounted PvM Pushing General [PvM - Pushing].

 

Please let me know if I missed any good Siege PvP Generals, or if you have an unlisted general you would like run through the algorithm to get a grade/score.


If you have any comments, requests, or questions, please let me know in the comments section below. Also, directing my attention to any mistakes is especially appreciated.
