Note: I doubt there will ever be something better than the straight six (6) piece Koryo Set, but if you see a better combination, please let me know.

 

The Freedom Hero Set is a good all-around attacking set, but it's less than adequate for an In-City Defense (Main Wall) PvP Gear.

The Achaemenidae Set remains the best "Red Gear" option, but it looks like the full Koryo Set is about 24% more powerful. For the In-City Defense (Main Wall) PvP Achaemenidae Set, a choice needs to be made for the 1) Special (Ring) slot.

  • For the 1) Special (Ring) Slot, both rings is are very good, so what to do? I've selected the Courageous Achaemenidae Ring, and thus chosen to live with any negative effects of the Siege Range Increase attribute. My primary In-City Defense (Main Wall) General is Leonidas, so I've chosen to live with any negative effects of the Increase Siege Range Attribute. However, if you are using Leo III, William Marshal, or Joseph E. Johnston, then the Courageous Achaemenidae Ring will be the superior choice.

The set-up below is for a Ground Troop focused In-City Defense Army General (for repelling Ranged Troop Attacks). The weapon should be switched out as required for the Primary Troop type of the In-City Defense (Main Wall) General being utilized.


Note: The first set below represents the choices I’ve made for this set, and the alternate options (with scores) are listed below the primary choices.

Overall, the full Ares Set is a much weaker In-City Defense (Main Wall) PvP set, so it's not recommended to use the Ares Set for this army general.


The set-up below is for a Ground Troop focused In-City Defense Army General (for repelling Ranged Troop Attacks). The weapon should be switched out as required for the Primary Troop type of the In-City Defense (Main Wall) General being utilized.
