Drop Rate of Historic General at Tavern (Survey Results)

Increasing the level of the tavern increases the probability of the historic general appearing, but at what level and at what rate?

In fact, i conducted 100 refreshes for each level of the tavern to determine the number of times the historic general appeared. The following probabilities are based on these. (Please note that these are not specified probabilities.)

*If tavern level is 10 or below, historic generals will not appear. Only white (common) or green (uncommon) generals will appear. (Reference: Types of rarity of generals)

*Tavern level 20 and below has not yet been investigated.

  • Tavern Level 21 -> Blue 23% Purple 1% Gold 1%
  • Tavern Level 22 -> Blue 32% Purple 0% Gold 2%
  • Tavern Level 23 -> Blue 49% Purple 7% Gold 0%
  • Tavern Level 24 -> Blue 46% Purple 9% Gold 2%
  • Tavern Level 25 -> Blue 50% Purple 5% Gold 2%
  • Tavern Level 26 -> Blue 60% Purple 3% Gold 3%
  • Tavern Level 27 -> Blue 68% Purple 7% Gold 2%
  • Tavern Level 28 -> Blue 81% Purple 5% Gold 5%
  • Tavern Level 29 -> Blue 86% Purple 10% Gold 5%
  • Tavern Level 30 -> Blue 106% Purple 8% Gold 4%

*The probability is unknown, but I’ ve been informed that they have appeared at levels 13, 14, 17, 18, 20, 23. 😃

The gold historic general also appeared at tavern level 21, but if you wanted to search for it with a serious Gem refreshment, tavern level 24 and above would be a good place to start.

Note that only a few of the golden historic generals appear in the tavern. The list below summarizes who appears in the tavern, so please refer to it.

Reference: About Generals to be Employed

Also, the majority of golden historical generals that appear in the tavern are useless. The following is a summary of who the generals to hire, so please refer to it.




I recently created a sub-account for resource gathering, and at tavern level 8, a non-historic golden general appeared.
Then at tavern level 10 a golden historic general appeared.
I didn’t recruit either of them, though.

If the golden historic general appeared at level 10, then the in-game description is wrong😓.
(If you press the “i” in the upper right corner of the tavern, you will see the explanation “You can only recruit Common and Uncommon Generals in Tavern of level 10 or below.”)


I’m sorry, but I have a question. I just got a popup on my screen that said “Historic General’s Quest”. One of the quests said it was clear, and the other two said to spend 2000gem and pay tribute 8 times. So I tried spending 2000gem, but nothing happened, and no matter where I looked, the quest wouldn’t start up again. What was that all about? By the way, I just got the keep lvl 21 yesterday, and it appeared around the top of the research factory.

Also, Queen Jindeok is supposed to be a good general for gathering resources from the world map, but she never does a full gathering for some reason, and every time I send her to gather, she only stays for a very brief amount of time, and gathers a small portion of the available resources??
This is frustrating, and I am about to give up on her completely, as every time she starts gathering resources, it comes back saying 20 minutes, instead of the hours the other generals spend gathering, She does get a bonus, but that does not make up for the fact that she only gathers a small percentage of the available resources from the spot!!

*Actually, I figured out what was happening with jindeok….
All of my troops were going out with my other generals, and she only had something like 3000 troops with her, which is not enough to carry much.
So, she was only gathering what she could carry!!

I have found that trying to refresh at the Tavern is a waste of gems, and even when you do get a gold general is it not historic….
After some 500 refreshes, I have not been able to find a single historic general at the Tavern, it is a waste of gems, and you will HAVE to get good generals some other way.
For the record, my Tavern is level 20, if that has anything to do with it!!


ya, I have lvl 23 tavern and I just spent… way too much on gems trying to find a gold historic. Well over 500 refreshes and not a single one. I will wait until 25 to try again.

I have tavern on lvl 23 and all generals for my 7 sub cities are bought there ☺️

I got my historic general Genghis Khan recently at tavern level 14. Sadly, I have not seen any more golden generals in my tavern as yet but I am hopeful. I am now up to tavern level 16.

My Tavern is level 26 now, and I get a gold general after every 3 or 4 refreshes….
It may not be one that I want, and they are HARD on your gold, but they are golden generals, with special abilities!!


In the past two weeks, I’ve gotten James Bowie and Charles the Great in the level 17 and 18 tavern.
I haven’t done any gem updates, but I check every time.


Charles the Great appeared on level 13 in the tavern. Unfortunately I recruited him. Probably this was a mistake… 🙄 What’s your opinion?

Certainly not the best general at the end of the game. However, in the early stages of the game, you probably don’t have a strong general, so it’s not a bad idea to train him as your main general temporarily until you get a better one.
In the end, you can use him as a duty officer. (Making him mayor will increase gold production, but it’s not very useful.)
Reference:Duty Officer – Required General Level, Star, etc

Saladin and Oda Nobunaga appeared at level 17 in the tavern, and Trajan at 18. I didn’t have enough gold to buy them, though.


I refreshed purple historic general Yi Song-gye. But after I boosted up to 10M money and re-enter into tavern, all generals were auto-refreshed. (But there were still 2 hours before auto-refresh time)


If i read this correct, its useless to try and use gems to get a gold one at tavern 15 to 19? No matter how often you spin it?

I got a gold historic general (Queen Jindeok) at tavern level 14.


Thank you! But I couldn’t get her because I couldn’t get the money before the next auto-renewal timing lol.


In the tavern on level 22, appeared the gold historic general Khalid.


I don’t know what the odds are, but even level 23 of the tavern gave me gold!
