Is Edward III a good general in Evony?

Edward III is highly effective for anyone looking for an Evony Ranged PvP General. His Special Skill gives a large buff to Attack with his Specialities also adding to this even further. In addition, he also provides buffs to Siege Machines, allowing you to run effective mixed marches of these 2 Evony Troop Types. However, you should have a tilt towards Ranged Troops here due to this being his best role.

Lastly, Edward III can prove useful as a Ranged Defense General. Though it should be noted that his Ascended Skills have a bias towards attacking and therefore there are better options available if you plan to Ascend.

Edward III – Special Skill

Edward III – 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 PvP

Everything for this build is focused on improving a very heavy siege march. This is likely only viable for heavy spenders as the gem repair cost could be very high. However, it is particularly potent and will cause huge damage to the enemy.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Attack – Siege Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Range Bonus – Siege Machine Range +200
  • Lvl 4 March Size – March Size +12%
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Axe – Siege Machine Attack % x4
  • Armor – Siege Machine Defense % x4
  • Boots – Siege Machine Defense % x4
  • Helmet – Siege Machine HP % x4
  • Leg Armor – Siege Machine HP % x4
  • Ring – Siege Machine Attack % x4

Siege and Ranged PvP

Although not quite as damaging as a pure siege march, this mixes in ranged troops and will keep your siege repair costs lower. The siege machines will also be effective at reducing the enemy numbers that your ranged troops will face by taking them out at greater range.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Range Bonus – Siege Machine Range +200
  • Lvl 4 March Size – March Size +12%
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Axe – Siege Machine 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
