Is Gaius Marius a good general in Evony?

Gaius Marius is a real specialist when it comes to Ore Gathering. His Special Skill, The Marian Reforms, increases ore gathering speed by a massive 30%. In addition, it also increases the speed of gathering wood and stone by 15%. Outside of Queen Jindeok, he is easily one of the Best Evony Gathering Generals and will work nicely until you are able to get a Queen Jindeok for all of your marches.

For gathering generals, everything needs to be focused on improving gathering speed. Troop load is not important as you can just send more troops to a spot to clear it. For refines, choose one resource and focus on it to create a gathering specialist.
