Is Empress Wu a good general in Evony?

Empress Wu is a sub city development general. Her main focus is on improving construction speed in the sub city where she is Mayor. As such, she is of very little use in PvP.

You should only appoint her as Mayor when you are sure you won’t be taking part in PvP. Indeed, Empress Wu is one of the worst generals in the game for PvP.
