Part 2A - Subordinate City Battle [PvP] General (Mayor) Rankings

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

INTRODUCTION


Army General Analysis PART 2, reviewing Sub-City Battle Generals (Mayors) for PvP (Battlefields, KE, SVS or Purge). This will be one of the longer articles, so hang in there...


There are DIFFERENT Sub-City Generals (Mayors) for PEACE-TIME that are covered in Part 12.


The mechanics of Subordinate City Army Generals in battle are such that any offensive buffs to attacking troops only apply to those troops within that particular Subordinate City. Since that’s only a few thousand troops, and they are usually lower level than your main troops, it’s usually not worth putting any offensively focused Army Generals in as Subordinate City Mayors.


Another thing about Subordinate City troops is that they tend to die first. So, between Battlefields, KE, SvS, and Purge, I’m always building them up from a very low number… I seem to keep an average of 2,000-3,000 troops in each Subordinate City.


However, the thing that work really works well for Subordinate City Battle [PvP] Generals are ENEMY DEBUFFS to Enemy Attacks or Toughness (HP and/or Defense). Those debuff bonuses apply to the ENTIRE ENEMY ARMY.


Personally, I think Overall Debuff ranking on the 1st list in each section is the way to go, but if you’d prefer to focus on Attack Debuffs, those rankings are on the 2nd list in each section. The Toughness Debuff rankings can be found on the 3rd list in each section.

 

DEBUFFING SPECIFIC ATTACKS


Debuffing Ranged Attacks


If you’re like most people, and are heavy on Mounted Troops, AND you’d like to focus on debuffing RANGED ATTACKS, then take a closer look at:

  1. Hojo Ujiyasu (+35-75%)

  2. Mark Antony (+35-75%)

  3. Baldwin IV (+30-60%)

  4. Nordic Barbarian King (+30-30%)

  5. Cnut the Great (+25-61%)

  6. Andrew Jackson (+20-60%)

  7. Arminius (+15-25%)

  8. Amr ibn al-As (+15-15%)

Many people do this, but like I stated above, I’m not one of them.


Debuffing Ground Attacks


Ground Attacks are the most difficult attacks to debuff with standard Achaemenidae Gear on all Subordinate City Battle Generals (Mayors), so the selection of Subordinate City Battle Generals (Mayors) is the best way to Debuff Ground Attacks.


For debuffing GROUND ATTACKS take a closer look at:

  1. Yeon Gaesomun (+40-50%)

  2. Darius I (+35-65%)

  3. Amr ibn al-As (+25-45%)

  4. Gilgamesh (+25-35%)

  5. Constantine the Great (+20-40%)

  6. Honda Tadakatsu (+15-15%)

  7. Wei Qing (+15-15%)


Debuffing Siege Attacks


Advanced, high level players may want to focus on debuffing Siege Attacks.

SPECIALTY LEVEL


Specialty Level for Featured Rankings:


Instead of the typical 4-Yellow Specialty Score used for the Primary Six (6) Army Generals, the Army 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:

If the 3-Orange Specialties Ranking is not appropriate for this Army General Category, the 3-Purple Specialty Rankings have been included below the Featured Rankings Section.


The Ascending Enhancement Rankings and the 4-Yellow Specialty Rankings are located above the Featured Rankings Section.


Note: The Offensive Specialties only work on the troops the Army General is commanding (troops in that particular Subordinate City), but their Enemy Debuffing Specialties work on the entire Enemy Army. Typically, the 1st and 3rd Specialties are offensively focused, and the 2nd and 4th Specialties are focused on Enemy Debuffs. Only the 2nd and 4th Specialties are worth developing. Everyone should probably be developing their Subordinate City Mayor's 2nd Specialties as high as possible. Even if that means Green (1st) or Blue (2nd) Level, every little bit helps. Unfortunately, the 4th Specialty is extremely difficult to develop, so that's probably only available to VERY HEAVY Spenders.

Subordinate City Battle Generals (Mayors) – OVERALL Debuff Rankings (at 3-Orange Specialties Level)

1. Gilgamesh - Grade: A+ (100.0% - 322) – Sometimes Evony releases an Army General that’s so much stronger than others in the same category, that it appears to be a mistake. This is the case with Gilgamesh. Very strong Enemy Ground Attack Debuffs, excellent Enemy Ranged Defense Debuff, excellent Enemy Siege Defense, and a strong Enemy All Troop Defense Debuff combine to make him an excellent Subordinate City PvP option.

  1. Specialist Against: Enemy Ground Attacks or opponents that are heavy on Ground Troops.

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

    1. Reduce Enemy Ground Attack: +25%

    2. Reduce Enemy Ranged Defense: +40%

    4. Reduce Enemy All Troop Defense: +6%

    5. Troop Death into Survival Increase in Subordinate City: +0% (5% w/ Skill Book)

    6. Subordinate City Training Speed Increase: +0% (25% w/ Skill Book)

  5. Culture: Other

  6. Introduced: February, 2023

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: For most people, 3-Orange (or only 2nd Specialty to 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. Although, if you have the resources, he ranks 1st in the overall rankings at 4-Yellow Specialties, and he ranks 5th in Reducing Enemy Ground Attacks, so he’s an excellent candidate for the 4-Yellow Specialties Level. He also has excellent Ascending Enhancement bonuses.

 

2. Jan Karol Chodkiewicz – Grade: A- (89.1% - 287) – Excellent Enemy Mounted Attack Debuffs, very strong Enemy Siege HP Toughness Debuffs, and a solid Enemy All Troop Attack Debuff combine to make him a very strong Subordinate City PvP option.

  5. Culture: Europe

  6. Introduced: April, 2023

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: For most people, 3-Orange (or only 2nd Specialty to 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. Although, if you have the resources, he ranks 2nd in the overall rankings at 4-Yellow Specialties. He also has strong Ascending Enhancement bonuses.

 

3. Harald – Grade: B+ (86.6% - 279) – Strong Enemy All Troop Attack Debuff, strong Enemy All Troop HP Debuff, and a strong Enemy All Troop Defense Debuff combine to make him a strong Subordinate City PvP option.

He is also 1 of the 8 army generals available in the Europe Epic Historic General Chest at level 50 in the Dawn of Civilization Event ($20 for easy mode, or $5 if you work hard and complete every task or spend gems for the last few levels).

  5. Culture: Europe

  6. Introduced: Unknown (before January, 2018)

  7. Recommended Specialty Level: For most people, 3-Orange (or only 2nd Specialty to 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. Although, if you have the resources, he ranks 6th in the overall rankings at 4-Yellow specialties and is a strong candidate for the 4-Yellow Specialties Level.

SKILL BOOKS


Skill Books for Subordinate City Battle [PvP] Generals (Mayors)


UPDATE: I've heard rumors that Enemy Debuff Skill Books are in live testing on some servers. So, I expect that they'll be released for everyone before the end of 2023 (depending on how the testing goes).


Since there are NOT any Enemy Debuff Skill Books in the game right now, the following Skill Books are most useful:

  1. Training Speed

  2. Training Capacity

  3. Rebirth

 

DRAGON


Dragons for Subordinate City Battle [PvP] Generals (Mayors)


Whenever possible, dragons should be placed on PvP Generals (mostly because I hate moving dragons). VERY few players have five (5) dragons, so the dragons should assigned per the following:

  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 Amaterasu (7th Dragon - White) can be obtained by reaching the 2nd round of All-Star Battlefield, then Norway Ridge (on Ground PvP General) can be replaced and re-assigned to the best Subordinate City Battle (PvP) General since it provides extra Enemy Debuff Bonuses. 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).

 

Please let me know if I missed any good Subordinate City Battle [PvP] Generals (Mayors), 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.


Thanks for Reading,

Any update on Zizka?

Yes, I'd say he's in your top 11, he's probably better than Baldwin IV and Hojo.

Does it make sense to have a mix of different types of de-buff generals, because you can't predict what troop type your enemy will hit you with. If you have 11 sub cities, which of these generals would you pick to be your 11 in battle? Arminius

Baldwin IV

Cnut the Great

Constantine the Great

Darius I

Empress Dowager Cixi

Harald (1) [I have three copies of him]

Harald (2)

Harald (3)

Hojo Ujiyasu

Mansa Musa

Nero

Nordic Barbarian King

Yeon Gaesomun

I also have Zizka, so I too am interested to see where he ranks. But, I need to get caught up on the combination rankings first. Maybe update this article in January?

Why do you not include William Wallace here?

That's a good question... I think because I missed the Enemy Debuff part of his Base Skill.


I'll add him the next time I'm updating this article.

Despite scoring highly overall at 3 orange, Jan Karol does not appear in either the attack or the toughness specific lists for that category, nor does he appear at all in the 3 purple lists. I would expect from the description that he is a strong attack mayor even at 3 orange, and a reasonable one at 3 purple?

It looks like I forgot to update everything below the Featured Rankings. It's been fixed now.


Thanks again for letting me know.

I was surprised at the amount that the generals moved around in the list when Gilgamesh. For example Mansa Musa and Harald changed places in a few of the lists, as did Darius and Nero, and that's just some of the simple one line swaps! Did something change about how the scores were computed?

Good question, I've been thinking about adding more rankings lately... I probably need to figure out what levels to add, then figure out how hard it would be... maybe in the next couple months.
