Is Carus a good general in Evony?

Carus makes an interesting Evony Ground PvP General. He is a little different from other Ground Generals, in that most of his buff is attack rather than HP. You would generally prefer HP buffs for this Evony Troop Type which causes him to slip down the tier list a little.

Most of his buff is only in attack and he should therefore not be used as an Evony Defense General.

Carus – Special Skill

An Evony General’s Special Skill is always active and requires no development. Read the description carefully to ensure it is having the impact that you expect.

Please note, that this General can be ascended through the Evony General Ascending feature. Each ascended star level will add an additional buff to the General’s Special skill. Read our Evony General Ascending Guide for more details on Evony General Ascension.

Carus – Builds

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

Ground PvP

This build is ideal for players who are very ground heavy. It sacrifices everything in favor of ground attack, HP, and speed. This build will work well for both a ground attack march and as a Wall Defense General.

It will help your ground troops get to the enemy quicker and give them greater HP to withstand ranged attacks as they go forward.

  • Lvl 4 Ground Troop HP – Ground HP +25%
