Part 5A - Mounted PvM [Pushing] Lead General Rankings

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

INTRODUCTION


For PvM Pushing (the strongest bosses you can kill), Caesar, Athaelflaed, Theodora and Baibers, all PvM specialists, have been ranked along with the Mounted PvP Generals.


Unlike Mounted PvP, generals that focus on Mounted Attack Increase, will do better in this ranking, since secondary damage does not help in PvM. Also, Toughness Buffs only help to reduce wounded, but do NOT prevent wounded (bring wounded to zero).


Note:

  • There are DIFFERENT Mounted Generals for PvP that are covered in Part 4.

  • There are also DIFFERENT Mounted Generals for PvM TREASURE HUNTING that are covered in Part 7.


For Mounted PvM Pushing Generals, the most important goal is getting to zero wounded on B12+ boss monsters as quickly as possible. So, the old saying, “the best defense is a good offense”, will be very relevant for this Army General category. Thusly, Mounted Attack Increase and Monster Mounted Attack Increase have been very heavily weighted in the calculations below.


Note: The top 3-5 largest Keeps in the Alliance may want to make the Mounted Monster Killing (for Pushing) General [PvM - Pushing] a higher priority, since they will likely be leading boss rallies most of the time.

 

METHODOLOGY


General Methodology


There's a multiplier for each Attribute. All those multipliers are applied the same way to ALL Army General Attributes in each category.


That includes:

  • Basic Attributes Score - Leadership, Attack, Defense, & Politics

  • Base Skill Score - Also can be known as the "Built-In" Skill

  • Three (3) Skill Books - For the Lead General's Best Three (3) Possible Skill Books.

  • Specialties Score - As appropriate for that Specific Ranking, i.e. 4-Yellow, 3-Orange, 3-Purple, etc.)

  • Ascending Enhancement Score - this number is only added for the Ascending Enhancement Rankings.


If that were written out in a formula, it would be:

TLGS = BAS + BSS+ 3SB + TSS + AES


TLGS = Total Lead General Score

BAS = Basic Attributes Score

BSS = Base Skill Score

3SB = Three (3) Skill Book Score

TSS = Total Specialties Score

AES = Ascending Enhancement Score

4-YELLOW SPECIALTY RANKINGS - v3.4.2


Mounted General (for PvM Pushing) Rankings (at 4-Yellow Specialties Level)

1. George A. Custer – Grade: A+ (100.0% - 447) – Excellent Mounted Troop Buffs, and an excellent (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him an excellent PvM Pushing option. Despite the wording of his “Built-In” Skill, he is able to use the March Size Increase Skill Book. He also has the 5th highest Monster Mounted Attack Increase available (at +170%).

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

2. Martinus [D] – Grade: A+ (99.1% - 443) – Excellent Mounted Troop Buffs, and a solid (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him an excellent PvM Pushing option. Since the Monster Mounted Attack Increase Skill Book is available for this set-up, not being able to use the Mounted Attack Increase Skill Book is less of a problem. He’s tied with Hannibal for the 3rd highest possible Monster Mounted Attack Increase available (at +171%). He is an excellent PvM General, but keep in mind, he needs ANY dragon to max out buffs and will likely need to share a dragon with a PvP General.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

  2. Conflict Group: MT3

  3. Strongest Buffs (at 4-Yellow Specialty Level):

    1. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +126% (+171% w/ Skill Book)

    4. Monster Mounted HP Increase: +20%

  4. Dragon: Yes, ANY Dragon

  5. Acquisition: Relatively EASY (at Tavern Level 27 and above). Available in the Tavern as of 01-27-2022, he's probably the BEST option available in the Tavern. Also, still available in the Great General’s Chest (GGC) activity, but his token fragments seem very rare compared to others.

  6. Culture: Other

  7. Introduced: Unknown (before January, 2018)

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: 4-Yellow, especially since he's the highest rated option available in the Tavern, and will help get him to maximum Ascending Enhancements faster.

 

3. Mordred – Grade: A+ (97.3% - 435) – Excellent Mounted Troop Buffs, and a very strong (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him an excellent PvM Pushing option. Additionally, he has the highest Monster Mounted Attack Increase available (at +180%).

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

  2. Conflict Group: MT1B

  3. Strongest Buffs:

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: 4-Yellow.

 

4. Zhao Yun – Grade: A+ (96.6% - 432) – Excellent Mounted Troop Attack Buffs, and a very strong (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him an excellent Mounted PvM Pushing option. Additionally, he has the 2nd highest Monster Mounted Attack Increase available (at +175%).

  3. Strongest Buffs (at 4-Yellow Specialty Level):

    1. Mounted Attack Increase: +105% (+175% w/ Skill Books)

  5. Acquisition: DIFFICULT, only available in the 5th Daily Event Packs ($100) and possibly during the King’s Scheme, Ekaterina’s Garden, King’s Party, or other pay events.

  6. Culture: China

  7. Introduced: July, 2022

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: 4-Yellow, especially since he’s ranked 1st at the Ascending Enhancements Level.

 

5. Sun Ce – Grade: A (93.7% - 419) – Excellent Mounted Troop Attack Buffs, and an excellent (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him an excellent Mounted PvM Pushing option. Additionally, he has the 7th highest possible Monster Mounted Attack Increase available (at +165%).


Note: The wording of his Built-In Skill exactly matches BISC Group MT2 (Zhou Yun, Hannibal, Yue Fei, Basil II, & El Cid) but he's compatible with all of them. So, either Evony made a mistake, or for some unknown reason, he's in a new BISC Group. I suspect they made a mistake and will "fix" this soon.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

  2. Conflict Group: MT2

  3. Strongest Buffs (at 4-Yellow Specialty Level):

    1. Mounted Attack Increase: +95% (+165% w/ Skill Books)

  7. Introduced: January, 2023

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: 4-Yellow, he makes an excellent Lead or Assistant General.

 

6. Hannibal – Grade: A (91.5% - 409) – He received a huge upgrade in Version 4.0 (released 11-06-2021). Excellent Mounted Troop Attack Buffs, and a solid (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him a very strong Mounted PvM Pushing option. Also, he’s tied with Martinus for the 3rd highest possible Monster Mounted Attack Increase score available (at +171%). Unlike Martinus, he does NOT need a Dragon to max out Buffs, so he’s probably a better choice for many players.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

  2. Conflict Group: MT2A

  3. Strongest Buffs (at 4-Yellow Specialty Level):

    1. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +101% (+171% w/ Skill Books)

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

    3. Monster Mounted HP Increase: +56%

    4. Mounted Defense Increase: +10%

  4. Dragon: Not required

  5. Acquisition: Relatively EASY (at Tavern Level 27 and above). Available in the Tavern as of 01-27-2022, he's probably the 2nd best option available in the Tavern. Also, still available in the Relic Chamber Rewards (RCR) Activity.

  6. Culture: Other

  7. Introduced: First introduced in October, 2018, then changed to Hamilcar Barca in July, 2019. Hannibal was reintroduced around July/August 2019, then received a major upgrade in November, 2021.

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Probably 4-Yellow, since he’s the one of the best options that doesn’t require a dragon.

 

7. Prince Eugene – Grade: A- (90.6% - 396) – Very strong Mounted Troop Buffs, and a strong (Basic Attribute) Attack Score make him a very strong PvM Pushing General. But, keep in mind that he CANNOT use the Mounted Attack Increase Skill Book, which hurts his score.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

  2. Conflict Group: MT3

  3. Strongest Buffs (at 4-Yellow Specialty Level):

    1. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +90% (+135% w/ Skill Book)

    3. Increase Double Drop from Monsters: +0% (+18% w/ Skill Book)

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Probably none, he’s probably not worth investing Runestones because there are superior choices available in the Tavern and as Relic Chamber Rewards.

 

8. Caesar [D] – Grade: A- (90.6% - 405) – A PvM specialist, he does ok on this list, but I expected him to end up higher. At B12+, he can reduce the number of wounded being taken, but higher ranked generals will get to zero wounded faster. Overall, he is a very strong PvM Pushing General, but keep in mind, he needs ANY Dragon to max out Buffs.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters

  6. Culture: Europe

  7. Introduced: August, 2021

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Maybe 4-Yellow, but only if you plan to use him as a Monster Killing for Treasure (PvM) General. For most people, 3-Orange because Runestone Chests are difficult to acquire.

 

9. Gaius Octavius – Grade: A- (90.4% - 404) – He does surprisingly well on this list. Very strong Mounted Troop Attack Buffs and a solid (Basic Attribute) Attack Score combine to make him a very strong Mounted PvM Pushing option.

12. Aethelflaed – Grade: A- (89.0% - 398) – A PvM specialist, so she does ok on this list, but not as well as I expected. At B12+, she can reduce the number of wounded being taken, but higher ranked generals will get to zero wounded faster. Overall, she is a very strong PvM Pushing General.

  6. Culture: Europe

  7. Introduced: February, 2021

SKILL BOOKS


Skill Book Preferences for Mounted Monster Killing for Pushing

  1. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +45%

  2. Mounted Attack Increase: +25%

  3. March Size Increase: +12%

  4. Increase Double Drop from Monsters (Luck): +18%

  5. Monster March Speed Increase: +45%

  6. March Speed Increase: +25%

  7. Monster Mounted HP Increase: +45%

  8. Monster Mounted Defense Increase: +45%

  9. Mounted HP Increase: +25%

  10. Mounted Defense Increase: +25%

Keep in mind, the Monster Mounted HP Increase and Monster Mounted Defense Increase Skill Books will help reduce the number of wounded in the "BOSS MONSTER GAPS” at K32-34/B12/B13 (see explanation below), but they will NOT help get the number of wounded to zero.


One note of caution, the Mounted (Movement) Speed Increase Skill Book does NOT work for PvM. This has been tested and proven with published data.

 

DRAGON


Dragons for Mounted Monster Killing (PvM) for Pushing


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 Nidhogg (5th Dragon - Dark Blue) can be obtained by reaching the Top 100 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 (on Siege PvP) can be replaced by the Colchian Dragon, 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).


The Fafnir can then be re-assigned to the Mounted PvM for Pushing General.

 

BOSS MONSTER GAPS


Boss Monster Gaps


  • The 1st “BOSS MONSTER GAP” is between Boss Levels 11 and 12 (Level 12 boss monsters are in the 75-95 million power range; Kamaitachis; L1 Junior Hydras; L3 Nians; L3 Golems, L3 Lava Turtles, L3 Witches & L3 Warlords; the last 4 Vikings on Normal; the L1 Icebreaker Viking, etc.). Boss Level 12s (B12s) seem to require 1.6 to 2 million T12 Mounted Troops and a REALLY GOOD PvM general to kill them without any wounded. At K33, the largest unbuffed march size is 1.1 million (and still getting 4,000+ wounded with T12 Mounted), so a single person does not seem to be able to kill B12 with T12 troops without getting wounded. So, T13 troops (1.1 million) and a really good PvM general are needed.


  • The 2nd “BOSS MONSTER GAP” is between Boss Levels 12 and 13 (Level 13 boss monsters are in the 96-155 million power range; L3 Ymirs; Fafnirs; L2 Hydras; L2 Knight Bayards; L2 Cerberus; L4 Nians; L4 Golems, L4 Lava Turtles, L4 Witches & L4 Warlords; the L2 Berserker Viking, etc.). Boss Level 13s (B13s) seem to require 1.6 to 2 million T13 Mounted Troops and a REALLY GOOD PvM general to kill them without any wounded. At K34, the largest unbuffed march size is 1.2 million (and still getting 4,000+ wounded with T13 Mounted), so a single person does not seem to be able to kill B13 with T13 troops without getting wounded. So, T14 troops (1.2 million) and a really strong PvM general are needed.

 

Please let me know if I missed any good Mounted PvM (for Pushing) 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.


Thanks,

I calculated Guesclin without ascension (counting only Main Skil, Books, Specialties) and I am getting 35 + 70 + 45 = +150 Mounted Attack. You credit him with +160. Your methods are great for determining Assistant Generals.

Check his 2nd Specialty, it's 20% instead of 10%.


35 + 70 + 10 + 20 + 25 = 160

Why is ascension not considered when you calculate attack increase?

Those stats are under the "4-Yellow Specialty Rankings". I haven't done the full stats for the "Maximum Ascending Enhancements and 4-Yellow Specialties Level".


The good news is that I'm working on a new ranking system that based on total stats, so at some point, there may be total stats for all the Ranking Levels. Unfortunately, right now, there's no ETA for implementing the new system for Lead Generals.
