What is a Spiritual Beast?

A support gear that can be assigned to a general to enhance his or her abilities

Types of Spiritual Beasts and Buffs

There are 7 types of Spiritual Beasts, each specialized for a specific troop type.

Therefore, depending on what the general is good at, you can decide which beast to assign.

Note: The buffs shown below are based on training to the maximum. (Lv20, Quality Red (described later))

Thunder Scorpion – Ranged

  • Ranged Troop Attack +52%
  • Ranged Troop Defense +52%
  • Ranged Troop HP +52%
  • March Speed +52%

Bird of Hurricane – Mounted

  • Mounted Troop Attack +52%
  • Mounted Troop Defense +52%
  • Mounted Troop HP +52%
  • Double Items Drop Rate from Monsters. +26%

Lord of Lava – Ground

  • Ground Troop Attack +52%
  • Ground Troop Defense +52%
  • Ground Troop HP +52%
  • Troop Load +52%

Behemoth King – Siege

  • Siege Machine Attack +52%
  • Siege Machine Defense +52%
  • Siege Machine HP +52%
  • March Size Capacity +26%

Pegasus – Mounted, Ground

  • Marching Mounted Troop Attack +78%
  • Ground Troop HP +78%
  • Enemy Ground Troop HP (Debuff) -52%
  • March Size Capacity +26%

To take advantage of the debuff, it is also good to put it on the mayors of the subordinate city. (Related: Buff / Debuff – Basic Guide)

Nine-tailed Fox – Ranged, Siege

  • Ranged Troop Attack +78%
  • Siege Machine Attack+78%
  • Enemy Mounted Troop HP (Debuff) -52%
  • March Size Capacity +26%

To take advantage of the debuff, it is also good to put it on the mayors of the subordinate city. (Related: Buff / Debuff – Basic Guide)

Kong – Ranged, Siege

  • Marching Ranged Troop Attack +102%
  • Attacking Ranged Troop and Siege Machine HP +102%
  • Enemy Mounted Troop Defense (Debuff) -52%
  • March Size Capacity +26%

To take advantage of the debuff, it is also good to put it on the mayors of the subordinate city. (Related: Buff / Debuff – Basic Guide)

Burning Godzilla – Defense General

  • In-City Ground Troop Attack +130%
  • In-City Ground & Mounted Troop HP +130%
  • Enemy Ranged Troop Defense (Debuff) -52%
  • Archer Tower Attack +130%

If you don’t have The dragon of Thebes and have a lot of ground troops, put it on the defender.
If you have The dragon of Thebes or few ground troops, it is not effective to put it on a defender, so put it on a mayor to take advantage of the debuff.
Or, you can put it on a general exclusively for reinforcements to an ally’s castle. (The in-city buff is effective when reinforcing an ally’s castle (details)).

Note that attaching Godzilla to an Archer Tower Officer or Other Duty Officer does not increase the Archer Tower Attack. This can be confirmed under “Archer Tower Attack” in the “Administration” category of the Monarch’s Detail screen. (Related: Duty Officer Guide)

If you attach a spiritual beast to other than the main general, does it work (Assistant, Duty Officer, Sub-city Mayor)?


Basically no effect. The buffs/debuffs that the spiritual beasts have do not work.

However, if the Assistant general’s skill is a skill that is not activated without the spiritual beast, it must be attached.

Related: Assistant Generals Guide

Duty Officer

No effect. The buff/debuff that the spiritual beast has does not work.

However, it does increase the general’s power, so if power is included in the requirements to be a duty officer, you may put it on when you make the general your duty officer. (No problem if the beast is removed after the assumption of office.)

Related: Duty Officer Guide

Mayors of Subordinate City


However, the buff is applied to soldiers in subordinate cities, not to the main army, so the benefit is quite small.

The debuff is effective (if a subordinate city is participating in the battle). This benefit is significant.

How to Get

You need to activate it with a Pasture.
(Pastures can be built at keep level 21.)

Requires Spiritual Beast EXP to activate it.
(300,000 EXP per beast)
Related : How to get Spiritual Beast EXP efficiently

Requirement Pattern A) Level of Pasture

You can activate one at a time, depending on the level of the Pasture.

  • Lv 6 – Thunder Scorpion
  • Lv11 – Bird of Hurricane
  • Lv16 – Lord of Lava
  • Lv22 – Behemoth King

Requirement Pattern B) Unlocking Item (Pegasus Spirit / Fox Mask / Soul of Kong / Burning Core)

As for below, it can be activated even with Pasture Lv1, but requires an item.

  • Pegasus – “Pegasus Spirit”
  • Nine-tailed Fox – “Fox Mask”
  • Kong – “Soul of Kong”
  • Burning Godzilla – “Burning Core”

How to get Unlocking Item

Unlocking Item can be exchanged by collecting 400 items called the “Spiritual Beast Scale” during certain events. The timing of events is irregular.

As of 2/17/2023, only the “Burning Core” required for Burning Godzilla requires 2,500 “Godzilla Badge” (but will probably be replaced by “Spiritual Beast Scale” in future events). Godzilla Badge can be obtained by hunting bosses during the event, using King Ghidorah’s Token, obtaining them through Login Rewards, or Purchasing Packages.
With the 2023/3/3 event, Burning Godzilla can also be obtained for 400 spiritual beast scales.

How to get Spiritual Beast Scale

Spiritual Beast Scale can be obtained by hunting bosses or buying paid packages during certain events.

In case from bosses

In case from bosses, I have confirmed that they drop from normal bosses. (Lv1 zombies ~)
Double drop available.

For event bosses, they dropped from Lava Turtle, Cerberus, and Bayard, but not from Viking or Ymir, so they may not drop from some event bosses.

In addition, it seems that the limit is 42 pieces per day.
(Technically, you can get up to 43 if you double drop with 41)

In case of paid package

In case of paid package, you can get the “Spiritual Beast Scale” by opening the “Spiritual Beast Scale Box” inside.

The quantity is random, either 10 / 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 400.

  • Availability (as of 3/3/2023)
    • 10: 21.9%
    • 20: 21.9%
    • 40: 36.5%
    • 60: 10.95%
    • 80: 7.3%
    • 400: 1.46%

Activate Procedure with items

  1. In the pasture, spend Spiritual Beast EXP on the spiritual beast you wish to activate.
  2. With the activation item obtained, press the Activate button on the beast in the pasture.

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 +1-4% each.

Example: Behemoth King Lv1 Quality Gray

  • Siege Machine Attack +2%
  • Siege Machine Defense +2%
  • Siege Machine HP +2%
  • March Size Capacity +1%

2 ways to train

Beasts need to be cultivated in two ways

  • Level Up – Use Spiritual Beast EXP to raise it.
  • Smelt – Upgrade Quality using Gems, Medals, Smelt items, and Gold.

Note that the quality must be raised to “Red” beforehand in order to raise the level to 11 or higher.

In case of Level Up

In case of Smelt (Quality Up)

These can be raised in parallel and separately. Start with the easiest one to raise first.

Either way, the buffs go up by % of the initial value.
(If the initial value is 2%, they go up 2% at a time.)
(If the initial value is 3%, they go up 3% at a time.)


In the case of Thunder Scorpion: the initial value 2%

  • 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%

Level Up

  • Pegasus, Kong, Burning Godzilla – “Crimson Crystal” “Spiritual Beast Badge” (2/17/2023 Specification changed)
  • Nine-tailed Fox – “Fox Tails”

How to get “Crimson Crystal”, “Fox Tails”

As of 2/17/2023, the “Godzilla Badge” can be collected and exchanged for “Crimson Crystals” (but this will probably change in future events). The Godzilla Badge can be obtained by hunting bosses, using King Ghidorah’s Token, obtaining it through Login Rewards, or Purchasing Packages during the event.

Previously, if one collected 20 “Spiritual Beast Scales” during the event, one could exchange them for 10 “Fox Tails”.

For details on how to obtain the Spiritual Beast Scale, see above.

How to get Awakening Stone

  • Paid Package
  • Top 10 in World Boss Individual Damage Ranking
    • 1st place 5 pcs
    • 2nd-3rd 3pcs
    • 4th-6th 2pcs
    • 7-10th 1pc

Which is better, Dragon or Spiritual Beast?

You can activate a dragon if you pay 300,000 gems after making your Pasture level 26. And, dragons are also weak if you don’t train them.

If the comparison is to be made with the maximum development, dragons are better than spiritual beasts.

However, a large amount of materials, gems, refining stones, etc. would be needed to raise them. And these are better spent first on crafting and refining the general’s equipment, which will provide more buffs at an earlier stage.

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.

* EXCEPTION – Minamoto no Yoshitsune, Martinus, El Cid, Isabella I, etc. have skills that enable their own buffs when attaching a dragon. If the spiritual beasts are not fully trained, they may be given dragons early on.

Thank you very much for all your help. I think the Spiritual Beast Scale only drops up to a few per day from monster hunting, have the specs changed? (I’m in an alliance that does a lot of rallying, so I’d think I could save up a lot if I got 42 drops a day, but I don’t save up much).


Spiritual Beast Scale, seems to be back to 42 after Friday’s server reset.


I started this game last August and the Spiritual Beast Scale has always been 4 pieces/day.
So I think it has been that way for a long time.
Rather, I got 42 pieces only in 2 days this time, so I even suspect that this time is special (lol).
I hope this will continue from the next time onward.

Ho una domanda: equipaggiamento Ares o achenemeide ha effetti per i buff e debuff se vengono equipaggiamento per i generali dei edifici interni. Esempio se faccio equipaggiare Giovani l del Portogallo con full achenemeide , i buff o debuff in città aumenteranno ?

> I have a question: equipping Ares or achaemenidae has effects for buffs and debuffs if they come equipping for generals of inner buildings. Example if I equip Young l of Portugal with full achaemenidae, will buff or debuff in city increase ?

It is explained below
Duty Officer Guide


Does it make sense to put Godzilla on the general in the Archer tower?

In a heavy ground troop account, is a high level Thebes Dragon preferred over Burning Godzilla for Main Defense General because of the General Attribute Boosts to leadership, attack, defense, and politics plus the power addition? Too bad we can’t put Godzilla on the Archer Tower Duty Officer.

I think Thebes dragon is preferable. The difference in buffs gained is significant. It would be a good idea to buff the infantry with cultivation. See below.
Dragon Complete Guide – Type, Buff, Enhance

Godzilla can be attached to the mayor to take advantage of the debuff or to the reinforcement general to take advantage of the in-city buff.
Since the archer tower does not do much damage, the archer tower attack is not worth much.

Hi, to upgrade the “new class spiritual beasts” to red quality….

70K gems, 500 “smelt items”, 35M gold, 10 awakening stones


Will the Beast buffs and debuffs on the General in the Archer Tower be effective?


Who does Kong work best with and who do you put as their assistant general?


i got told to unattached my spiritual beasts from generals before i logoff but i dont know why


Since it takes time to replace the beast, the person may be using one beast for multiple generals.


I thought that spiritual beasts basically do not have marching effects attached to them like dragons do, but I heard a rumor that they do on Pegasus. Is this true? Also, do Kong and fox also have effects?


Can you use a spiritual beast exp on dragons or it’s only exclusive to the beasts and leveling up the dragons has it’s own thing?


I have a question please.

Is it better to add Nine-tailed fox or Celtic Demon to Princess Kaguya as a leading pvp general?


Can you include the power number each beast has when max-upgraded/max-smelted? It will be important to know when trying to get to 6/6 5.8M generals for victory column level 2. Thank you.


I always refer to your articles.

Since there is a wide variety of spiritual beasts, it would be helpful if you could verify if there are any recommended combinations when rallying in PVP, barbarians, etc. 🙇
I haven’t been able to raise spiritual beasts yet ……
(I heard that buffing and debuffing the rally host and one participant is valid.)

Each person’s buff is applied to his or her own troops, so each person should participate with a Spiritual Beast that is appropriate for his or her troop type.
One of them can be a beast with a debuff, but instead of having a debuff, they do not have a defensive or other buff. So, the effect varies depending on the enemy.

For people without the 4 dragons, it seems that the Fox is a very good substitute of the Thebes dragon. Very high archer and siege attack and debuff against cav, seems to work for many players.

Scroopy Noopers

Yup. I’ve counselled everyone in my alliance to use Fox on the wall. It’s great.


I was also curious if their debuffs would apply to sub generals.

Happy Dip

Which do you like better for Trajan… Lord of Lava or Pegasus? If they are both fully level 10 and fully smelt…

What if I couldn’t get all 400 scales, do evony keep Pegasus to use same spiritual beast scales???

Xander - Server 514

Thanks for sharing your wiki, it’s great content. Wanted to pass along orange smelt requirements for Pegasus are 20k gem, 250 beast badge and 10k gold. Any intel on how to earn best badges post event?

Some info on Pegasus…

First smelt, 1K gems, 25 spiritual beast badges, 500k gold
Second smelt, 4k gems, 40 spiritual beast badges, 2M gold

I know you have third… and will update more once I learn more

Fourth smelt, 20k gems, 250 spiritual beast badges (!), 10M gold

OK, finally have the 5th smelt (queued up but not actually done)

60K gems, 360 scales, 30M gold

takes mounted attack 42 –> 45
ground hp 42 –> 45
enemy ground hp -28 –> -30
march size 14 –> 15

I spent 300k spiritual beast XP on the pegasus without realizing I needed the Pegasus Spirit to activate it! I think I won’t we able to get all 400 scales for the spirit! I’ve been killing so many bosses but my luck has been horrible! I only have 43 scales until now and the event ends in 5 days!! Will I get my spiritual beast XP back after the event? If the spiritual beast xp I used on the Pegasus will not get returned it will be as if Evony is a rip off! Why couldn’t they make someone activate the Pegasus BEFORE making them waste 300k spiritual beast xp! Very pissed of right now!


Right. I did the same thing. It was not readily clear that no matter what, you needed 400 Scales to Activate Pegasus, and instead of advancing another Best to the next level, I used the 300,00 on Pegasus. I hit bosses none stop for days now and still only have 51 scales. They would need to have this event a few more times before I come close to 400 Scales. Just not right

For ground pvp gernal which spritual beast is recommended?
Pegasus or lord of lava?

I recommend Lord of Lava.
This is because attack, defense, and HP are all important for ground troops.
I also believe these are more important than the ground HP debuff that Pegasus has, since the ground troops’ primary role is to counter ranged troops.

There is a new spiritual beast now called Pegasus. There is a lot of confusion about what it takes to unlock and level it.


This is something I’ve wondered too. Particularly, do the debuffs of the new beasts carry through like gear debuffs do?

if i attach spiritual beast to defense general will its buff work


I’ve heard of people using the Thunder Scorpion on Ban Chao in the archer tower. Will this still buff your archers or is it a waste? Thanks for everything you do, this site is vital to evony success

I read the article again and realize that you did mention the max percentage at 30% on each (Luck would be halved at 15%). Sorry for disturbing

Hi, can you tell me the stats of Thunder bird at maximum level and smelt? Thanh you

Zachariah A Lloyd

Is Smelting really worth the cost??
I mean, it is not cheap, and Medals are somewhat slow to come by, as are Gems / Gold….
From what it shows, the improvement is not substantial versus the cost!!


I think it’s worth it. Nothing is cheap in this game. The last few percent of buffs are always more expensive than the first few. I completed the smelt for by Bird of Hurricane, and I don’t regret it. In fact, getting the spiritual beast EXP to get to lv10 is actually taking longer time than the gems and medals. I still need a few millions of Beast EXP, but the bird will be very nice in the end.

Zachariah A Lloyd

Hello all, interesting conversation, and I have a question really….
How do I get enough exp to activate the Thunder Scorpion please??
Because every time I try I get the same stupid error that I need more Spiritual Beast exp, and it does not show me anywhere that I could find how much you need, nor how much you have. Did I build that Pasture thing for nothing, or what here?? Is there a bug that will not allow you to activate any of the beasts?? Someone please explain this to me, and Thanks in advance!!

Beast exp. can be obtained several ways. You can purchase it at the market under the black market tab. You can also get it by killing thieves. Lastly some of the monsters you kill will provide monster exp.

For me the best way to get Spiritual Experience is Lv12 resource tiles; they contain 5k Spiritual Experience. You do not always get it in times of peace, but you always get it during KE and SvS (do not farm though during SvS). During KE in my server, we have agreed to not attack resource tiles).
You also get Spir Exp in the wheel of fortune, if you are lucky (up to 10,000),

G maximus

I activated my bird of hurricane and assigned him to a general. I’ve been adding beast EXP to it, but I don’t see it fly with the troops when I go into battle. Am I missing something?

So should I not assign a scorpion to minamoto since he would be good with a dragon?

If the Thunder Scorpion is well trained and the dragon is not trained, it is better to attach the Thunder Scorpion.
If you attach a dragon that is not trained at all, the ranged attack is +15%.
Therefore, if you have already trained the Thunder Scorpion until it has more than +15% ranged attack, then the Scorpion is better.
If Scorpion is weaker than that, then Dragon is fine.

It’s a bit confusing about upgrading spiritual beast. Is it all 5 quality levels available for upgrade at any of 10 beast levels? And what to upgrade first? Is there any difference? Thank you.
