Best of Mounted PvP General (9/23 Update)

9/23/2021 – Added Gaius Octavius
9/13/2021 – Added generals that are now available in relics in “pay no money” section.
9/3/2021 – added Rankings for Reinforcements.
8/4/2021 – Changed the assumptions of the “pay no money” case / Changed all generals’ stats when using Lv4 skillbook / Added Cyrus, Yue Fei

The following rankings are based on my personal opinion when the troop formation is specialized in Mounted Troop.

  4. Hannibal +55%
  5. Roland 45%
  6. Cyrus the Great +41%
  7. Gaius Octavius +41%

Note – Hannibal & Roland’s Weaknesses

Hannibal & Roland can be considered the best general only when attacking (marching), but when reinforcing (alliance member’s city), or defending main city (on wall), his performance drops significantly.

If you are using them as your main general, some players may need to train a separate general for reinforcements.

(However, if you can’t maximize the 4th specialty, it may not be such a problem for some people.)

Note – The following cases are no problem. Attack buffs (march buffs) are applied.

– When participating in a rally / starting a rally by yourself
– When sending reinforcements / defending / attacking an occupied building on the map (Portal, Temple, etc.)

Detailed explanation: Buff / Debuff – Basic Guide

Special Note – Martinus’ Restriction

(This story is for those who can get the third dragon in the Wonder, the Nidhogg, so it may only be relevant to a very few.)

Regarding the mounted attack buffs that dragons have, there are differences as follows

  • Martinus – max +85%
  • Other generals – max +125%

Of the skills that Martinus has, “mounted attack +15%” is conditional on attaching a pasture dragon. There are three types of Pasture dragons, but only Fafnir is suitable for mounted. And Fafnir’s mounted attack buff has a maximum value of +85% (theoretically). (Ladon would have a maximum of +100%, but since Ladon is supposed to be attached to ranged generals, you’ll probably never use it.)

If you can attach Nidhogg to Hannibal or Roland, the maximum mounted attack buff Nidhogg has is +125%. (Theoretically)

Therefore, if you are able to get Nidhogg, you should probably choose Hannibal or Roland instead of Martinus.

Why don’t you have Dmitry listed as a reinforcement general, with his “Hero of Don River” buff – Increase the ground troops’ defense and HP by 20% and ranged troops attack by 30% when General is leading the army to reinforce? He is the only general in the game with a reinforce buff, so wouldn’t it make sense to use him as reinforcement general?

This appears to be a rework of Dmitry with one of the latest updates to the game. I got him early on and just held on to him, but don’t recall him having this buff or skills previously.

Hi, between Roland and Hannibal, who will be best for PvP and Boss? If so, is the difference much?

If you want only attack, it is as per the above ranking.
If you want double-item drops in boss hunting, both are inappropriate.

I also believe that it is impossible for one person to be both a PvP general and a Boss hunting general.
The reason for this is that the Boss hunting general needs to add skill to a “mounted troop attack against monster”. This is a skill that is completely unnecessary for a PvP general.

For more information, please refer to the following article.
Best of Boss General / Monster Hunter

BumbleBee

Thanks for the response mate. I should have framed my question better. My actual query was, between Roland and Hannibal, who would you groom for PvP and whom for boss. My opinion was Roland for PvP as he is bit well rounded and Hannibal for boss as his attack buffs are insane. Your thoughts please?

It’s the same for me.
For monster hunting, attack is the most important thing, so Hannibal.
For PvP, both are fine, but Roland is the choice by process of elimination.
(HP and defense are also important when fighting archers and siege, but Roland has better defense and Hannibal has better HP. (Skill/Attributes))

However, if you prefer PvP to monster hunting, I recommend Hannibal for PvP and Roland for monster hunting.

Hi. I am back with a question on the march size. In particular, what is the maximum march size only from the rally spot and research, at k30, k32 and k35 if possible? (Monarch’s horn, general’s skill and equipment are not taken into consideration)
Recently, when thinking about your suggestion of March size skill for general that cannot use skill of damage (Minamoto, Martinus, etc), I discover that at high level pvp battle, march size increase is better than damage percentage increase. However, as for monster hunter, maybe the necessary number of troop would not reach the maximum number that rally spot and research can provide. So I would be grateful if you can help me with those data.
Thank you so much.

I am so sorry. I read your article about March size again. It is not superior as I thought, though plays an important role still. So I think the answer is not necessary anymore. Sorry for disturbing you

The maximum values for march size, based on rally spot and research alone, are as follows
k30 – 660,000
k35 – 1,260,000

If other factors are added, most people will probably get the following. (If not using march size items)
k30 – around 760,000
k35 – around 1,400,000

It would be great if you could give us an evaluation of Cyrus.

Added to the ranking.
I don’t think he is a very good cavalry general.
The focus is on cavalry + ranged troops, and it seems half-baked. 🤔

Hello, thank you for your excellent work, it has been very useful! I would like an opinion: I won my second general Martinus. I already have one developed for PVP (skillbooks) and I am thinking of developing the new one for monsters. So, I would sell my Li Jing (I also have 4 Baibars). Does having 2 Martinus, both with dragons, make any sense? Thanks

It depends on the following.🤔

– Which dragons you have.

– Which troop types you are focusing on and which ones you are discarding. Or not, you are raising generals of all troop types.

If you have the following dragons,

– Celtic Demon, Fafnir, Norway Ridge, and The Dragon of Thebes.

And if you are raising generals of all troop types, your dragons will have the following uses
– Ranged: Celtic Demon
– Mounted: Fafnir
– Defender: The Dragon of Thebes
– Ground: Norway Ridge

In this case, it would be better to assign the second Martinus a Hurricane Bird instead of a Dragon.

Please see also the following article.
Dragon Complete Guide – Type, Buff, Enhance

HI….so for mounted PVP, Takeda is better thn Li Jing? Wat abt monster hunting, who is better Takeda or Li?

If you want to increase the specialty to the maximum, Li Jing is the way to go. If you don’t, there is not much difference between the two.

This has been very helpful.
I don’t have enough information about Aethelflaed, and I think it is suitable for cavalry, but what do you think?

She is suitable for cavalry, but only for hunting monsters, not for PvP.
Also, if you assume that the specialty is maxed out and you use the mounted troop attack skillbook Lv4, her mounted troop attack will be +120%, which is inferior to Hannibal and Martinus (+126%).
(You can’t use the mounted troop attack against monsters skillbook on Aethelflaed.)
Therefore, it is not recommended to spend the cost and effort of specialty on Aethelflaed.

Buenas aprendiendo mucho de la página
Consulta cuál es mejor para montado si tendría Takeda shingen y khalid …… Para poder mejorarlo por favor espero su respuesta gracias

>Good learning a lot from the page
Consultation which is better for mounted if I would have Takeda shingen and khalid …… To be able to improve it please I wait for your answer thank you
————————————-
If you want to raise the specialty, Takeda Shingen will have more mounted buffs.
If you don’t consider specialty, neither is much different.

Miguel Ángel

Buen día resien me tocó en la taberna los dos 2 y quiero saber cuál de es mejor para mostros jefes o los dos son para atacar castillos esa es mi duda soy nuevo aún …. nota que quiere decir de khalid ataqué aumentado en 20% y 20% puntos respectivamente

>Good morning, the two of them touched me in the tavern and I want to know which one is better for our bosses or both of them are for attacking castles. That is my question. I’m still new…. note what khalid means I attacked increased by 20% and 20% points respectively
————————————-
Good morning.😃 I don’t think they are the best, but both are suitable for boss battles and castle attacks.
However, if you want to increase the “specialty” of general in the future, Takeda Shingen is better than Khalid.
(But in that case, Martinus or Li Jing is better than them.)
“Specialty” is unlocked when the general’s level reaches 25. After that, you need to use a lot of items to raise it. It’s quite a challenge.
The “specialty” of each general can be found in their portraits in the tavern.

Thank you for all your informative articles.
I have a question.
You have created articles on ranged generals, ground generals, and mounted generals, but is there any need for siege generals?
In the previous article on the roles of generals, there was no mention of a general who specializes in siege, so I was curious.
If there is a point to raising siege generals, it would be nice to have an article about it.
Thank you for your time.

Is there an area where you explain cultivating? I don’t understand why it minus some basic skills when I hit the button.

I’m always learning from you. Thank you very much. Is Washington a bad general?

As I added to the article, if you don’t max out your specialty, he is pretty low rank. It’s also hard because of the low stats increase.
Even if you max out the specialty and use the skill book Lv4, he still has 81% cavalry attack (you can’t use the attack skill book), 35% HP, and 62% defense.
It’s hard to recommend him as the best general. 🤔

Assuming the specialty is maxed out, even if you use the skill book Lv4, it is only 91% mounted attack, 25% mounted HP, and 45% mounted defense.
Therefore, it is inferior to not only Roland, but also El Cid and Li Jing. It’s hard to recommend him as the best cavalry general. 🤔

Article has been updated. If the general’s specialty is assumed to be maxed out, he will not be included because the difference between him and the top generals is too great. If you only pay a little money, he is #1, but I believe it is conditional. Please refer to the special note for details. 😃

What about Li Jing? I can’t give him a skill book attack, but I can give him a march size.

As I added in the section on “A) If you only pay a little money”, if specialty is not taken into account, even if you add march size, it is inferior to Martinus and Barbarossa.
If you take specialty into account, it is still inferior to Martinus.
It’s hard for me to recommend him as the best general. 🤔
