How to Assign and Release the General
To assign a beast to a general, open the general’s details screen and press the dragon symbol in the top left corner. The same procedure is used to unassign the beast. Note that once the beast is unassigned, it will not be able to be assigned to the general for a period of one hour.
Beasts are “WEAK” if you don’t train them.
The buffs right after activation are only +1-2% each.
Example: Behemoth King Lv1 Quality Gray
- Siege Machine Attack +2%
- Siege Machine Defense +2%
- Siege Machine HP +2%
- March Size Capacity +1%
Beasts need to be cultivated in two ways
- Level – Use Spiritual Beast EXP to raise it.
- Quality – Upgrade using Gems, Medals and Gold.
These can be raised in parallel and separately. Start with the easiest one to raise first.
Either way, the buffs go up 2% at a time. (If the initial value is 1%, they go up 1% at a time.)
- Lv1 Quality Ash (0) -> Attack +2%
- Lv1 Quality Green (+1) -> Attack +4%
- Lv2 Quality Ash (0) -> Attack +4%
- Lv1 Quality Blue (+2) -> Attack +6%
- Lv2 Quality Green (+1) -> Attack +6%
- Lv2 Quality Blue (+2) -> Attack +8%
- Lv9 Quality Orange (+4) -> Attack +26%
- Lv10 Quality Gold (+5) -> Attack +30%

Which is better, Dragon or Spiritual Beast?
You can activate a dragon if you pay 300,000 gems after making your Pasture level 26. However, dragons are also weak if you don’t train them. A large amount of Lv6 materials, gems, refining stones, etc. would be needed to raise them. However, the buffs you get will be greater if you spend these on crafting and refining the general’s equipment first.
So until the general’s equipment is sufficient, it’s better to refrain from training dragons and train Spiritual Beasts and assign them to the general.
*As an exception, Minamoto no Yoshitsune, Martinus, El Cid, and Isabella I etc. have skills that enable their own buffs when attaching a dragon, so in their case, it is better to use a dragon in some cases. (Mainly if the beast is not fully trained.)
