Is Cyrus the Great a good general in Evony?

Cyrus the Great can be used as an Evony Mounted PvP General or an Evony Monster Hunting General. However, he is very much a reserve option and should not be developed much. There are several better options available, even in the Tavern.

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

Big Prey Hunter

This build is ideal for players who are looking to take down big monster prey. It sacrifices everything in favor of mounted attack and mounted HP via equipment refines and skill books. This build will ensure you do maximum damage to boss monsters on the first hit. This will minimize your losses and allow you to take on higher level bosses for better rewards.

Looter Hunter Hybrid

This build will allow you to take down big boss monsters whilst also maximizing your loot return.
