Part 8A - Resource Gathering Lead General Rankings

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

INTRODUCTION


Army Generals Analysis - PART 8A, reviewing Resource Gathering Generals.


Most of the Resource Gathering Generals are available in the Tavern (only Princess Lucy is not available there).


Everyone should probably reserve at least ten-twelve (10-12) spots (six 5-6 Lead & 5-6 Assistants) in their final general line-up for Resource Gathering Lead and Assistant Generals.


In addition to the names listed below, there is a Purple “Starter General” for each culture received early on (before K10), that may also have Resource Gathering Bonuses. The Chinese version is Han Xin, who has a +15% Bonus to Resources when Gathering. If he was available to everyone, and I could find out what his specialties are, he would probably rank 3rd on this list.

 

SPECIALTY LEVEL


Specialty Level for Featured Rankings


Instead of the typical 4-Yellow Specialty Score used for the primary six (6) army generals, the generals in this category have been ranked by the 3-Orange Specialty Score because very few people will play the game long enough or spend enough money to get this category of army generals to 4-Yellow specialties. See the Developing Army General Specialties in this article for more information.


The Primary Six (6) Army Generals are:

The 3-Purple Specialty Rankings are in the section below the 3-Orange Specialty Section.

3-ORANGE SPECIALTIES RANKINGS v3.4.2

1. Queen Jindeok – Grade: A+ (100% - 537) – By far, the BEST option for Resource Gathering. She starts out with a strong "Built-In" Skill and gets stronger with her 2nd & 4th Specialties. Ideally, when reaching K35, you’ll want a minimum of six (6) copies of her.

  1. Specialty: All Resource Gathering

  2. Strongest Buffs (at 3-Orange Specialties level):

    1. Extra Resources from World All Tile Gathering: +40%

    2. Extra Resources from Alliance Tile Gathering: +20%

    3. Single Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +0% (+45% w/ Skill Book)

    4. Single Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +0% (+45% w/ Skill Book)

    5. Single Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +0% (+45% w/ Skill Book)

    6. All Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +6%

  3. Dragon: Not Required

  4. Acquisition: Relatively EASY (at Tavern Level 25 and above), by far the BEST option available in the Tavern.

  5. Culture: Korea

  6. Introduced: February, 2019

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: Maybe 4-Yellow, since there are no better gathering generals. But, for most people 3-Orange because very few people will play the game long enough or spend enough money to get this category of Army Generals to 4-Yellow Specialties. See the Developing Army General Specialties in this article for more information.

 

2. Constance I – Grade: C (70.4% - 378) – A purple general, and probably the 2nd best option for Lead Resource Gathering General. However, she does NOT make a good Assistant General because her “Base / Built-In” Skill conflicts with Queen Jindeok’s.

  1. Specialty: All Resource Gathering

  2. Strongest Buffs (at 3-Orange Specialties level):

    1. Extra Resources from World All Tile Gathering: +20%

    2. Single Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +0% (+45% w/ Skill Book)

    3. Single Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +0% (+45% w/ Skill Book)

    4. Single Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +0% (+45% w/ Skill Book)

    5. Extra Resources from World Lumber Tile Gathering: +12%

    6. All Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +6%

  3. Dragon: Not Required

  5. Culture: Europe

  6. Introduced: Unknown (Before January, 2018)

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: None, she’s not worth investing Runestones because Queen Jindeok is vastly superior.

  1. Specialty: Food Gathering

    2. All Resource Gathering Speed Increase: +10%

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: None, he’s not worth investing Runestones because Queen Jindeok is vastly superior.


4. Gaius Marius – Grade: D+ (60.1% - 323) – A purple general, and probably the 4th best option for gathering. He can be especially speedy when gathering Lumber or Stone, if those two (2) skill books are added. He can’t use the Ore Gather Speed Increase Skill Book since that is also his main “built-in” skill.

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: None, he’s not worth investing Runestones because Queen Jindeok is vastly superior.


5. Amir Timur - Grade: D+ (59.2% - 318) – Not the best option, but he’s probably better than any Army General not listed. Could be used as an Assistant Gathering General for the Alliance Resource Tile, or for looting resources from weaker players.

  5. Culture: Other

  6. Introduced: Unknown (Before January, 2018)

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: None, she’s not worth investing Runestones because Queen Jindeok is vastly superior.
