Assumptions

Compatibility with the main general

Compatibility with the main general is also a consideration, so it is not possible to create an absolute ranking.

The rankings in this article do not include as a ranking factor who can be paired with whom.
Basically, the rankings are based solely on the height of the buffs.

Please also refer to the “Basic Skill Competitive Table for Assistant” in this article.

Evaluation Criteria

Listed in order of the total buffs each general has, from highest to lowest.

(Attack, Defense, and HP of the 4 type of troops buffs are added together.)

Two types of ranking

Each general’s performance depends largely on his ability to maximize the 4 specialties. And it is difficult to maximize all 4 unless you are a heavy payer. (Reference : Specialty Guide)

Therefore, the ranking is divided into two categories: without specialties and with specialties.

  • Ranking A) Basic skills only
    • Mainly for F2P (Free to Play) or players who pay a little.
  • Ranking B) Basic skills + Specialty + Covenant
    • Mainly for players with heavy payer.

Ranking A) Basic skills only

Mainly for F2P (Free to Play) or players who pay a little.

Specialties are not included.

Does not include additional basic skills added by ascending. (They do not add up due to the specifications.)

Covenant is not included.

Overall Rating

I recommend the following.

If you want to strengthen…

– Siege: Melisande
– Ranged: Godfrey of Bouillon, Yodo-dono
– Ranged & Siege: Mason Weaver

is boudica as wall gen and james bowie as asst wall generals good?

Boudica is good if you have a high-tier cavalry-oriented defense, but if you don’t, you should stop. For some reason, it is popular to put Boudica in a castle with t1 cavalry defense, but it is almost pointless.
James Bowie is not recommended because of its poor performance as shown in the ranking on this page.

Wouldn’t using William Marshall with skin be the best Asst. Defense General to Brock?

Isaac Brock with Takenada as the assistant wall gen? Do you think that will be stront, effective defense? Thanks for your thoughts!

Hi. Thank you for the awesome information! What do you think about having a 10 star

Dark knight8

I believe if you use mu guying she will one of the best assistant for wall

Ecco il mio Generale principale della Difesa . Quale assistente mi consigliate ?

I placed a poligenus on a defense assistant such as Leo and the buff worked. The wording says it is “when attacking”…am I mistaken on this?

Aueen Boudica comes with great Subcity features. If not at war do you switch her to Mayor???

Dear Admi, first of all, I can’t thank you enough for this tedious work you’ve done ,gathering /composing and delivery all these data

I am in a predicament, I can’t seem to fully ascend my William Marshal , despite having full caked several times .

I have been hearing a lot about the much neglected wall general, Richard the Lionheart , I would truly appreciate if you could give your opinion about him, please note : I’m a 1B T1 trap keep , that’s able to ghost all high tier cavs + grounds , except siege , so I’m looking to improve siege and range buffs . most importantly, I am hoping to fully ascend the wall general .
Many thanks

Please refer to the following article with the addition of Richard and comments about him.
Best of Defense General (Wall)
If t1 traps are the objective, there is no big difference between any of the defense generals.
If you want to improve high-tier siege machines and ranged troop buffs, Richard is not a bad choice. However, his defense and HP are high, but his attack strength is low, so you must be compensated for by an assistant or equipment refinement, etc. The assistant in this case is George Dewey (with max specialty). It also requires a much larger number of troops to compensate for attack.
Another good choice for a 5-red-star would be Zachary Taylor, which can be obtained at the relics. However, the attack strength of the siege is not high, so it is necessary to compensate for this an assistant or equipment refinement, etc. In this case, the assistant is either Takenaka, Leo III or Edward Teach (all with max specialty).
The other easy to make red star 5 is George Dewey. However, it is more difficult to obtain than Zachary.
Please refer to the link above for more information.

How about Maeda Toshiie for wall asst general. He allows ground attack also compared to Turrene.

How is Mason weaver a wall general, Her skills and attribute do not have “In city” troop attack/ hp/ Defense

Anonymous

Hello Sir,
If I use Mason Weaver as a “Assistant Defence General”, then her main skill book buff( 25% defence and hp after attaching spiritual beast) will work? One more question: Main defence general:Trans Hung and Mason Weaver as assistant defence general, how is this pair?

Hi,does spiritual beasts and dragons works on assistant wall general. When tried attaching spiritual beasts on assistant wall general the beast didn’t discolored. While it is discolored on launching March.

Hi, what do you thing about the new ground general Turenne as assistant wall? Looks a better version of Leonidas right?

Bonjour, est-ce que sur le général assistant du mûr, les étoiles rouges sont actives ?
Merci

Do skillbooks cancel each other out with Defense Generals (Wall), like they do for PvP Main & Assistant Generals? So if I have Leo III with Siege Range Bonus, Ranged Range Bonus & Siege Attack, would I put the same skillbooks or different ones on William Marshall? Like maybe Ground Troops Speed, Mounted Troop Speed, Mounted Def or HP or Ground Def or HP?

If I make David Farragut an Assistant General will his debuffs be in effect?

hello, if I put QueenBoudica with assistant Leonidas, does it work?

is defense wall general need to be equiped? also with assistant general

Anonymous

In the Beginner’s Guide to the Duty Officer, it states, “In order to be stronger in a defense battle, the equipment and stats of the defense general needs to be better, but improving that of the duty officer has no effect on the battle.” This is stated in the guide.
Not sure about the assistant. (I would like to know too)

First of all, I am learning and empathizing a lot on your site. I have a question because of Yodo-dono. The battle report shows that the siege machine hunts a lot. However, when archers attack, defenders’ archers often can hardly hunt. There are many archers in the first attack, but in this case, isn’t it right to strengthen the ground troop? I wonder when the defender’s archer attack will begin.

If using William Marshall as assistant general for defense with Leo as main defense general; Marshall is not the main defense general; so, do his basic skills activate?

Why does Basil II not feature on your assistant defence general list?

I had thought that, as you say his buff would not apply, but when he is attached as an assistant the buff is not disabled. Is this a bug, and even though it’s still showing as active it doesn’t actually work, or is it that it’s effective but as he’s not marching it just doesn’t work?

Barbazzalla

if I put George Dewey, as main general, and Ly Thuong Keit, as assistant, the basic skills and skills added with tiles?

Gần đây có một lối chơi phòng thủ bằng T1, bạn có thể chia sẻ nó ?

When I have a general with the “when General is the Main City Defense General” buff as an assistant defender, is that buff valid? I understand that the “when General is leading the army to attack” buff is not valid…
