List of Best Generals

First of all, the basics are:

  • Only the golden historic general should be hired.
  • Most historic general who come to tavern are useless.
  • If tavern level is over 21 (24 or higher recommended), it is relatively easy for a gold historic general to appear.
  • “Great General Chest” must be opened every day. (Daily activity needs to reach 145 points)

Who you hire depends a lot on how much you charge. (There are generals who can’t be obtained without charging.)

Tran hun Dao is very popular on my server with great results against range troops?
Any opinion?
But my question is why can not you put lvl4 range attack skill book on black prince but you can on Alfred?

If you don’t have a good golden historic general, you can train him as a temporary main general and make him a duty officer when you get a better one.

I recently started a game on a new server, and Maensikov was a bonus for purchasing 1 gem (the actual cheapest was a $0.99 package).

Hi – do you think Hannibal is better then Martinus or Roland. I’m currently using him and fully maxed he appears to have the same attack as Martinus but with higher HP / Lower march size?

Hi… It could be an stupid question but Wall general is helping on monster’s hunt to when on duty or just support defense and attack on pvp?

When defending a city in PvP, do the skill buffs, equipment buffs and spiritual beast buffs of the duty generals and mayors apply as city defense buffs?

Duty Officer – Basically ineffective, but the original skills that the mayor has that are activated by making him the duty officer are effective. (e.g. Ban Chao’s ranged troops buff)

Mayor – Does not apply to troops in the main city. In addition, the debuff by the mayor is valid.

Hi, thanks for the info. I started playing the game just two weeks ago, however, and am wondering what you mean by low and heavy coining?

Thanks for reading!😃
Sorry for the poor English. Thanks for pointing that out. 😃
low coining mean, “Not paying any money” or “Pay only a little money”.
heavy coining mean, “Pay a lot of money”.

I will correct the text of the article!

Thats a very good info but do you mind if you can explain about the stats of these generals and how they benefit the player, especially PVP generals (attack gens, subordinate city gens)

Thank you.

I can not go into detail here, so I will give a rough description.
In terms of stats, the generals listed above are relatively high.
The height of their stats is roughly, but proportional to the height of their gold. You can find a list of them on a later page.

Ranged Generals
– Alfred the Great, Gustavus, Gwanggaeto – if the Siege machine also emphasizes
– Elektra – if the Mounted also values
– Minamoto Yoshitsune – If you want a Ranged specialization

Mounted General
– Martinus – if you want a Mounted specialization. Equipped with dragons and maxed out Specialty, it is the strongest. However, it is quite hard. (Attack 25 + 15 + 10 + 10 + 20 + 10 + 46 = 126%)
– Roland, Li Jing – if you want a Mounted specialization.
– Yue Fei, Takeda Shingen – if you also want to focus on Ground

Ground Generals
– Scipio, Trajan – if you want a Ground specialization. Also useful as a wall general against Ranged specialization enemies.

Wall Generals
– Joseph – good at Ranged and Siege
– Kusunoki, Ly Thuong Kiet – good at Ranged

Subordinate City General
All I expect them to do is debuff. And the performance of the debuff does not depend on the stats.
Depending on your play style, you can make your mayor a general with the debuffs you need.
To see who has what debuff, here is a list of who has what debuff. 😃
