Is Epaminondas a good general in Evony?

Epaminondas is one of the best Evony Ground PvP Generals and Ground Defense Generals in the game. He has huge HP and attack buffs for ground troops which make him ideal for this march type.

Unfortunately, a large part of his ground HP buff comes from the final specialty. Therefore, he can prove expensive to get the most out of vs. other similar options.

  1. How do you get the Ground Troop Attack on? The app keeps saying “The general has already had the skill at a higher level” and it won’t let you add it.

  2. Hi, thanks for your comment and for highlighting this issue. Unfortunately, you cannot add an attack skill book to this general due to his special skill already adding a large buff here. Instead, it is a good idea to add a defense skill book to make your ground march even more durable.
