Is Leonidas I a good general in Evony?

Leonidas I is one of the most versatile Ground Generals in the game. Indeed, he is incredibly powerful when used as an Evony Defense General. Without any development, you will get an immediate 30% Ground HP buff from his Special Skill with the ability to also add a Ground HP Skill Book!

If you are struggling for a pure Evony Ground PvP General, then you can also use him in this role. However, this will require you to have done significant work on his specialties as his Special Skill is only active in defense. You are better off pursuing another option in this role.

Leonidas I – Special Skill

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.
