Is Charles Martel a good general in Evony?

Charles Martel is a sub city development general. His main focus is on improving construction speed and training speed in the sub-city he is Mayor at. As such, he is of very little use in PvP.

You should only appoint him Mayor when you are sure you won’t be taking part in PvP.

  1. So, I’ve been using the suggestions on this site faithfully since I found it, and it just burned me.
    After getting Charles Martel, I had immediately added a Lv1 Gold Production skill book as well as Lv4 Training Capacity. I hadn’t yet checked this site. While looking at the suggested builds for Martel, I tried to add a Lv1 Training Speed book, but it replaced my (only) Lv4 Capacity skill.
    I understand the gamble, but I’m kinda pissed that I was planning to follow with Lv1, then Lv4 Construction books, only to find that you CAN NOT add Construction Skills to Martel, because he has a 50% buff, and NOT the 40% buff as mentioned on this site. Had I noticed that before I started messing around, I may have done things differently.
    Still, I can’t stay mad. This site has been INCREDIBLY helpful since I started playing Evony, and we’re all human. OCG made the mistake in buff percentage, and I burned myself out of a book.
