Is Leo III a good general in Evony?

Leo is a natural defense general. In particular, he is one of the best for a very heavy siege defense. However, he also works very well when mixed with ranged troops. He should not be used for attack as most buffs are only active in defense.

Leo III – Special Skill

An Evony General’s Special Skill is always active and requires no development. Read the description carefully to ensure it is having the impact that you expect.

Please note, that this General can be ascended through the Evony General Ascending feature. Each ascended star level will add an additional buff to the General’s Special skill. Read our Evony General Ascending Guide for more details on Evony General Ascension.

Leo III – Builds

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

Siege Defense

Everything for this build is focused on improving a very heavy siege city defense. This is likely only viable for big spenders as the gem repair cost could be very high. However, it is particularly potent and will cause huge damage to the attacker. HP is added to give a bit more durability to your siege machines.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Attack – Siege Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Range Bonus – Siege Machine Range +200
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine HP – Siege HP +25%
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Axe – Siege Machine Attack % x4
  • Armor – Siege Machine Defense % x4
  • Boots – Siege Machine Defense % x4
  • Helmet – Siege Machine HP % x4
  • Leg Armor – Siege Machine HP % x4
  • Ring – Siege Machine Attack % x4

Siege and Ranged Defense

This defense works well for Leo III who is very balanced between the two. It also helps keep gem repair costs lower than you would see in a pure siege defense. Range buff skill book is added to both along with a ranged attack skill book.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Range Bonus – Siege Machine Range +200
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Range Bonus – Ranged Troop Range +100
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Bow – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
  • Armor – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Boots – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Helmet – Siege Machine HP % x4
  • Leg Armor – Siege Machine HP % x4
  • Ring – Ranged Troop Attack % x4

Ranged Defense

Range defense build for players who are very range focused or do not want the gem repair cost associated with siege machines. Although not as powerful as a siege defense, it is still very effective.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop HP – Ranged HP +25%
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Range Bonus – Ranged Troop Range +100
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Bow – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
  • Armor – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Boots – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
  • Helmet – Ranged Troop HP % x4
  • Leg Armor – Ranged Troop HP % x4
  • Ring – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
