Is El Cid a good general in Evony?

El Cid is very much a reserve general in Evony. Although can do a job in Mounted and Ground PvP, there are far better options. You are better off pursuing one of these rather than spending too much time developing El Cid.

Should not be used as a defense general as the majority of his skill boosts are only active when El Cid is attacking.
