Is Alfred the Great a good general in Evony?

Alfred the Great has the second-highest ranged attack once he has been fully leveled and specialties maxed out. This puts him just behind Simeon the Great. However, like Simeon, much of this attack is tied up in the expensive final specialty.

Maxing this out will cost a lot of Gems and Runestones. If you are not a big spender, it is better to go with Elektra who has a higher ranged attack when the final specialty is not maxed out. She also has a superior ranged troop HP.

Alfred the Great – Builds

The below builds outline which skill books and equipment refines you should use depending on your requirements.

Ranged PvP

This build is ideal for players who are very range heavy. It sacrifices everything in favor of ranged attack whilst also topping up ranged troop HP and Defense via equipment refines.

This build will ensure you do maximum damage, especially in the early game when players are quite mounted heavy. You can alternatively swap March Size for Ranged Troop HP if you want to give your Ranged troops a bit more durability.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Range Bonus – Ranged Troop Range +100
  • Lvl 4 March Size – March Size +12%
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Bow – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
  • Armor – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Boots – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Helmet – Ranged Troop HP % x4
  • Leg Armor – Ranged Troop HP % x4
  • Ring – Ranged Troop Attack % x4

Siege and Ranged PvP

If you like and can afford, to mix in some siege to your march then this is the build for you. It still assumes you are more range heavy, given Alfred the Freat’s skills, however, it also gives your siege troops a boost to their range.

Siege range is prioritized over siege attack as siege attack is already very high with the additional range giving you some extra attacks before the enemy has you in their range.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Range Bonus – Ranged Troop Range +100
  • Lvl 4 Siege Troop Range Bonus – Ranged Troop Range +200
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Bow – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
  • Armor – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Boots – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Helmet – Ranged Troop HP % x4
  • Leg Armor – Ranged Troop HP % x4
  • Ring – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
