Color of General and difference (Rarity, Quality)

You may have some idea that “the rarer the better,” but you may be wondering what exactly makes them different. This article explains those points.

Types of Color (Rarity, Quality)

In the tavern, the rarity level is shown below the general's illustration

There are five qualities of Evony’s generals.

  • White (common)
  • Green (uncommon)
  • Blue (Rare)
  • Purple (Legendary)
  • Gold / Red (Epic)

White (common)

Green (uncommon)


Blue (Rare)


Purple (Legendary)

Gold / Red (Epic)

(“Orange” in the Tavern notation)

Golden “Historic General (described later)” turns “Red” when they reach star level 10.

Differences by Color

The differences by color (rarity, quality) are as follows. In each case, the higher the quality, the better.

  • Initial status values (Leadership, Attack, Defense, Politics)
  • Status increase value when you level up (lower quality at the same level means lower status)
  • Presence and number of Speciality (gold x4, purple x3, other colors x0)

Nevertheless, even if the color (rarity) is different, the EXP required to get to the next level does not change. Therefore, it is not advisable to recruit and train non-golden generals with little reward.

Color & Historic General

There are two main types of generals: historic general & non-historic general.

“Historic General” exist only in Blue, Purple, Gold, Red.
It doesn’t exist in White, Green.

“Non-Historic General” exists in All colors. (This applies to generals that have the same appearance, even if they are of a different color.)

Historic GeneralNon-Historic General
Common(White)Doesn’t existExist
Uncommon(Green)Doesn’t existExist
Rare(Blue)ExistExist
Legendary(Purple)ExistExist
Epic(Gold / Red) (*)ExistExist

(*) ”Orange” in the Tavern notation

Non-Historic General have a smaller and weaker growth range than Historic General, so it is not recommended to buy or train Non-Historic General, even if they are gold.

What is Historic General?

If you would like to learn more about the historic general, please refer to the following explanations.

What is Epic Historic General?

The term “Epic Historic General” often appears in the game, which, in essence, refers to ” Historic Generals” that are ” Gold/Red” in rarity.

Other variations include

  • Legendary Historic General
    • Historic generals whose rarity is Purple (Legendary)
  • Epic Historic General
    • Historic generals whose rarity is Gold/Red (Epic)
  • Epic Historic General (Premium)
    • Historic generals whose rarity is Gold/Red (Epic). Also, those that cannot be obtained at the tavern.
  • Legendary General
    • Historic generals & Non-Historic generals whose rarity is Purple (Legendary)
  • Epic General
    • Historic generals & Non-Historic generals whose rarity is Gold/Red (Epic) rarity.
  • Adv General
    • Historic generals & Non-Historic generals whose rarity is Purple (Legendary) and Gold/Red (Epic).

Color & Original Skill

General's Original Skill

Only purple & gold historic generals have one original skill unique to each general.
(Blue historic generals do not.)

Historic GeneralNon-Historic General
Common(White)None
Uncommon(Green)None
Rare(Blue)NoneNone
Legendary(Purple)AvailableNone
Epic(Gold / Red) (*)AvailableNone
Availability of original skill

(*) ”Orange” in the Tavern notation

The decision on whether a general is the right general to buy depends largely on what original skills they have, so white, green, and blue generals who do not have this are not candidates.

Look in your Items chest, there will be a scroll there to obtain the general. All your need to do is open it and the general goes in your “generals” box.

My blue/rare Buffalo Bill General has an “original skill” box on his profile (Lv1 ground troop load 15%). However he doesn’t have the golden historic general icon.

To confirm, after receiving your comment, I recruited Buffalo Bill again in the tavern, but he did not have the original skill.
Isn’t that what you granted using the skill book? 🤔
The “original skill” I am referring to is the skill that the general has from the beginning, without the use of a skill book.
