Is Gaius Octavius a good general in Evony?

Gaius Octavius is one of the best Evony Generals for Mounted PvP and Monster Hunting. However, you will most commonly see him taking down big monsters and a PvP Mounted march is a more specialist attack for specific keep defenses.

If you set him up as a PvP Evony General, he can also do a job as a Mounted Defense General.

Gaius Octavius – Builds

The below builds outline which skill books and equipment refines you should use depending on your requirements.

Big Prey Hunter

This build is ideal for players who are looking to take down big monster prey. It sacrifices everything in favor of mounted attack and mounted HP via equipment refines and skill books. This build will ensure you do maximum damage to boss monsters on the first hit. This will minimize your losses and allow you to take on higher level bosses for better rewards.

Looter Hunter Hybrid
