Special Notes – If you don’t want to pay a lot of money, but want to increase the general’s “specialty” as much as possible

Ulysses S. Grant and Khalid should not be chosen. (Their specialty is more siege machine, and their mounted troop buffs don’t extend very far.)

In this case, you should choose Martinus or Li Jing.

1. Hannibal

  • Mounted Attack +105% (can’t use)

  • Mounted HP +35%

Special Notes

Martinus’ skill requires a Pasture’s Dragon. (If not, his attack is reduced by 15%.) There are three types of Pasture’s Dragon, and only Fafnir is suitable for mounted. And Fafnir’s maximum mounted attack buff is +85% (theoretically). (A Ladon would have a maximum of +100%, but since Ladon are supposed to be attached to ranged generals, you’ll never use them.)

If you can attach Wonder’s third dragon, Nidhogg, to Hannibal or Roland, the maximum mounted attack buff from Nidhogg is +125%. (Theoretically)

In other words, only in this case, Hannibal or Roland can surpass Martinus’ mounted attack.

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

It’s not useless, but it’s hard to recommend it as the best cavalry general.
Please see the answer to a similar question below.

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.

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. 🤔
