Is Ludwig a good general in Evony?

Although Ludwig doesn’t have the highest Ground Troop HP in the game, he makes up for it with an insane amount of Ground Attack and Defense! This makes him a terrifying prospect for any Keep you launch an attack on.

Despite his Special Skill only being active in attack, he can also do a job as a Ground Defense General. However, it should be noted that this relies upon you maxing out his specialties which can be very costly. If you don’t plan on doing this, then you are better off going with one of the other Wall Defense options.
