Part 7A - Mounted PvM [Treasure] Lead General Rankings

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

INTRODUCTION


Army Generals Analysis - PART 7A, reviewing Mounted Generals: Monster Killing for Treasure [PvM Treasure] Rankings


Most players will probably want a good PvM Treasure Army General on all monster marches, except if you are leading the march and/or expecting wounded (see Part 5 - Mounted PvM for Pushing). That’s possibly six (6) PvM Treasure Army Generals, if you plan to kill monsters with all six (6) of your marches.


Personally, I like to have at least one (1) march out Gathering at all times. So, for me, five (5) PvM Treasure Army Generals would be enough.

 

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 the 4-Yellow Specialties Level. 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, see the the 3-Purple Specialty Rankings that have been included below the Featured Rankings Section.


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

Monster Killing for Treasure [PvM Treasure] Rankings (at 3-Orange Specialties Level):

1. Theodora – Grade: A+ (100.0% - 270) – She starts at +10% Increase Double Drop rate and can add another +15% with her 2nd Specialty, then another 18% with a Skill Book for a total of +43% Increase Double Drop rate, the highest possible total. At the 3-Orange Specialties Level, she can obtain a total of +37% Increase Double Drop rate, also the highest possible total.

    4. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +30%

  3. Dragon: Not Required

  4. Acquisition: Fairly EASY, she’s only available as a 1st purchase bonus. I believe the minimum spending amount is $1.00 US.

  5. Culture: Other

  6. Introduced: August, 2021

    4. Reduce Monster Attack: +9%

  4. Dragon: Not Required

  5. Acquisition: DIFFICULT, 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. She’s 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 at it and complete every task or spend gems for the last few levels).

  6. Culture: Europe

  7. Introduced: February, 2021

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Maybe 4 Yellow, she can also be the primary PvM for Pushing Army General, so that possibly maybe makes her worth maxing out all four (4) Specialties.

 

3. Caesar [D] – Grade: B+ (87.4% - 236) – He starts at +0% Increase Double Drop rate and can add another +15% with his 2nd Specialty, then another 18% with a Skill Book for a total of +33% Increase Double Drop rate, the 3rd highest possible total. At the three 3-Orange Specialties Level, he can obtain a total of +27% Increase Double Drop rate, the 2nd highest possible total.

  2. BSC Group: MT10

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

    1. Increase Double Drop from Monsters: +9% (+27% w/ Skill Book)

    2. Monster March Speed Increase: +0% (+70% w/ Skill Books)

  5. Acquisition: DIFFICULT, 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: Europe

  7. Introduced: June, 2021

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Maybe 4 Yellow, he can also be the PvM for Pushing Army General, so that maybe makes him worth maxing out all four (4) Specialties.

 

4. Caesar [ND] – Grade: B+ (85.6% - 231) – He doesn’t lose much power in this category by not bringing a Dragon.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters (for Treasure)

  2. BSC Group: MT10

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

    1. Increase Double Drop from Monsters: +9% (+27% w/ Skill Book)

    3. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +55%

  4. Dragon: No Dragon

  5. Acquisition: DIFFICULT, 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: Europe

  7. Introduced: June, 2021

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Maybe 4 Yellow, he can also be the PvM for Pushing Army General, so that maybe makes him worth maxing out all four (4) Specialties.

 

5. Baibars - Grade: B- (79.3% - 214) – He starts at +25% Increase Double Drop rate and can add another +16% for a total of +41% Increase Double Drop when all four (4) Specialties are maxed out (4 yellow), the 2nd highest possible total. At zero Specialties, he has by far the highest possible Increase Double Drop rate at +25%. At the 3-Orange Specialties Level, his total remains +25% Increase Double Drop rate, so unless you are planning to take Baibars to the 4-Yellow Specialty Level (very difficult) or leave this category at Zero Specialty Level, you are better off with other options for PvM Treasure Generals.

  1. Specialist Against: Boss Monsters (for Treasure)

  2. BSC Group: MT11

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

    1. Increase Double Drop from Monsters: +25%

    2. Monster March Speed Increase: +0% (+70% w/ Skill Books)

    3. Monster Mounted Attack Increase: +45%

  4. Dragon: Not Required

  5. Acquisition: Relatively EASY (at Tavern Level 27 and above), by far the BEST option available in the Tavern.

  6. Culture: Arabia

  7. Introduced: July, 2018

  8. Recommended Specialty Level: Maybe 4-Yellow, since there is only one (1) general better when maxing out all four (4) of his Specialties. But, for most people 3-Orange or less because Runestone Chests are very difficult to acquire.

 

T-6. Sanada Yukimura - Grade: C (70.4% - 190) – Don’t let the low score fool you, everyone probably needs to have at least one (1) copy of Sanada in their final Army General Line-Up. He’s one (1) of only two (2) army generals with Base (Built-In) Skill Debuffs Against Boss Monsters, and the only general that will help rally leaders get to zero wounded faster (with Reduce Monster Defense). For smaller keeps (not in the top 10 largest keeps in the alliance), he is a great Army General to have available early, maybe even worth getting multiple copies.

T-6. Spartacus - Grade: C (70.4% - 190) – One (1) of three (3) Army Generals on the list that increase marching speed to monsters. For “free” players who are missing out on boss monster rallies because of march speed, he is a great Army General to have available.

For smaller keeps (not in the top 10 largest keeps in the alliance), he is a good army general to have available early, but not worth getting multiple copies or investing many resources into.

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, but they will NOT help get the number of wounded to zero.


The Mounted (Movement) Speed Increase Skill Book does NOT work for PvM.

 

Please let me know if I missed any good Mounted Generals: Monster Killing for Treasure (PvM - Treasure), or if there is 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.
