Part 9/12 - Specialized Duty Officer Rankings [PvP and/or Peace-Time]

Updated: 3 days ago

Army Generals Analysis - PART 9, reviewing Specialized Duty Officers [for PvP and/or Peace-Time].


Ashoka, Stilicho, Mikhail Kutuzov, and Sulla have been recently introduced as Battle (PvP) Duty Officers. At some point, Battle [PvP] Duty Officers will probably have a separate category, but for now there are only four (4), so they are ranked together in one (1) list.


Additionally, the six (6) new and improved Duty Officers (Ashoka, Otto the Great, Stilicho, Maurice of Nassau, Mikhail Kutuzov, and Sulla) are NOT available from buying the 5th ($100) event packs. These new "upgraded" Duty Officers are only be available through achieving the highest level of the King’s Party Bonus (which typically requires buying the 5th Event Packs, that requires spending $185 US in a day, for every day of the Special Event or about $2,100 US for each General), which is way beyond what 99.9% of people can afford to spend on a video game.


There are eighteen (18) buildings that allow Duty Officers. Eight (8) of these buildings have no specialized duty officers, so any general works just as well as any other for these eight (8) Duty Officer positions:

  1. Bunker [Level 20]

  2. Warehouse [Level 23]

  3. Market [Level 24]

  4. Embassy [Level 27]

  5. Forge [Level 30]

  6. Research Factory [Level 32]

  7. Holy Palace [Level 35]

  8. Military Academy [Level 1, K36 to open]

Out of the other ten (10) buildings, four (4) of them have only one (1) Specialized Duty Officer. The Archer Tower, Keep, Trap Factory, Workshop, Stables, and Archer Camp are the six (6) buildings with multiple choices for Specialized Duty Officer.


Also, there are some strange mechanics with appointing Duty Officers, that are reviewed below the Rankings.

 

Specialty Level for 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:

  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]

 

Ranking format:


Ranking # - General Name – Letter Grade with (Percent & Total Score) in parentheses – Description

3-ORANGE SPECIALTY RANKINGS - v3.3.2a


Specialized Duty Officer (PvP &/or Peace-Time) Rankings (at 3-Orange Specialties Level):


ARCHER TOWER [Level 11]

1. Maurice of Nassau - Grade: A+ (100.0% - 94) – By far, the BEST option for Archer Tower Duty Officer, if you can get him.

  1. Specialty: Archer Tower Duty Officer

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

  3. In-City Ranged Attack Increase (when Archer Tower Officer): +20%

  4. In-City Siege Attack Increase (when Archer Tower Officer): +20%

  5. Reduce Enemy Ranged Attack (when Archer Tower Officer): +15%

  6. Archer Tower Attack Increase (when Archer Tower Officer): +54%

  7. Dragon: Not Required

  8. Acquisition: EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, it doesn’t seem like he’s available in the 5th Daily Event Packs (requires spending $185 US in a day). I believe he’s only available through achieving the highest level of the King’s Party Bonus (which typically requires buying the 5th event packs ($185 US) every day of the Special Event, that’s about $2,100 US), which is way beyond what 99.9% of people can afford to spend on a video game.

  9. Culture: Europe

  10. Introduced: June, 2022

  11. Recommended Specialty Level: For most people, 3-Orange Specialties Level 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 Level. However, since he’s the top choice at his position, it probably makes sense to take him to 4-Yellow Specialties Level if you have the resources available.

  12. Duty Officer: He can make the SUPER Duty Officer minimum requirements (Attack 1,350 & Defense 1,350) at Level 34 although it requires getting at least 502 on Defense Cultivation (which is difficult, but not impossible to do). If you’d prefer to save gems on cultivating, you can wait until Level 35.

2. Ban Chao - Grade: C+ (73.4% - 69) – The 2nd best option for Archer Tower Duty Officer, much easier to get (since he’s available in the Tavern), and still much better than inserting a random Army General as Archer Tower Duty Officer.

  1. Specialty: Archer Tower Duty Officer

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

  3. In-City Ranged Attack Increase (when Archer Tower Officer): +20%

  4. Reduce Enemy Mounted Attack (when Archer Tower Officer): +20%

  5. Archer Tower Attack Increase (when Archer Tower Officer): +54%

  6. Dragon: Not Required

  7. Acquisition: Relatively EASY (at Tavern Level 27 and above). Available in the Tavern as of 01-27-2022, but he’s also still available in the Great Generals Chest (GGC) activity.

  8. Culture: Europe

  9. Introduced: May, 2019

  10. Recommended Specialty Level: 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 the 4-Yellow Specialties Level.

  11. Duty Officer: He can make the SUPER Duty Officer minimum requirements (Attack 1,350 & Defense 1,350) at Level 37 although it requires getting at least 502 on Attack Cultivation (which is difficult, but not impossible to do). If you’d prefer to save gems on cultivating, you can wait until Level 38.

 

HOSPITAL [Level 15]


1. Skanderbeg – Grade: A+ (100.0% - 60) – Currently, the BEST option for Hospital Duty Officer.

  7. Culture: Europe

  8. Introduced: March, 2020

  9. Recommended Specialty Level: For most people, 3-Orange Specialties Level 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 Level. However, since he’s the top choice at his position, it probably makes sense to take him to 4-Yellow Specialties Level if you have the resources available. However, I expect a better Hospital Duty Officer option to be introduced before the end of 2023, so it may be better to wait on upgrading to 4-Yellow Specialties Level.

  10. Duty Officer: He can make the SUPER Duty Officer minimum requirements (Attack 1,400 & Defense 1,400) at Level 40.

 

KEEP - BATTLE (PvP) [Level 16]

  10. Recommended Specialty Level: For most people, 3-Orange Specialties Level 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 Level. However, since he’s the top choice at his position, it probably makes sense to take him to 4-Yellow Specialties Level if you have the resources available. However, it’s possible a better Rally Spot Duty Officer could be introduced before the end of 2023, so it may be better to wait on upgrading to the 4-Yellow Specialties Level.

  11. Duty Officer: He can make the SUPER Duty Officer minimum requirements (Leadership 1,400 & Attack 1,400) at Level 38, although it requires getting at least 502 on Attack Cultivation (which is difficult, but not impossible to do). If you’d prefer to save gems on cultivating, you can wait until Level 39.

 

SKILL BOOKS FOR SPECIALIZED DUTY OFFICERS


Since duty officers are not involved with PvP or PvM, there are no useful Skill Books for Duty Officers. So, for the Specialized Duty Officers, do not waste Skill Books on them, it will NOT help anything.


This is also true for the Archer Tower Duty Officer, even though it seems like they should be involved in the fight, like the In-City Defense (Main Wall) General, they are NOT directly involved in any battles because they do NOT receive experience from defending attacks like the In-City Defense (Main Wall) General and the Subordinate City Generals (Mayors).

 

GEAR FOR SPECIALIZED DUTY OFFICERS


Most of the time, gear also does not matter for a Specialized Duty Officer. The only time it will matter is when you need to promote a duty officer to the 4th or 5th level (SPECIAL DUTY OFFICER or SUPER DUTY OFFICER).


There are some strange mechanics for appointing duty officers… let’s say you appoint a new Duty Officer at the Junior Duty Officer Rank and over time you level them up so that they should qualify for a promotion to the next level, Medium Duty Officer. You would think the game would automatically change that, right? Well, think again, because it does NOT. When you have improved a Duty Officer enough to qualify for the next level, you will need to dismiss and re-appoint them for their ranking to change. At first, I thought “this must be a bug”, but it is not…


You’ll notice that the two highest rankings (SPECIAL DUTY OFFICER and SUPER DUTY OFFICER) involve a minimum power requirement (either 3.1 million or 3.3 million). Even at level 40, it's not possible for an Army General to make those minimum power requirements unless they are wearing “Red Gear”. I believe the mechanics are functioning this way, so that the “Red Gear” can be temporarily placed on a Duty Officer. Once appointed to their Duty Officer position at SPECIAL DUTY OFFICER or SUPER DUTY OFFICER rank, the gear can be removed (and put back on another general) without losing the ranking of the Duty Officer.
