Is Matthias I a good general in Evony?

Matthias I is a very strong Evony Siege General and Evony Ranged General. This makes him a great option when you have a good mix of these Troop Types.

Additionally, he can be used somewhat effectively as an Evony Siege Defense General. However, this role relies on you maxing his specialties as his special skill is only active in attack.

Matthias I – Builds

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

Siege PvP

Everything for this build is focused on improving a very heavy siege march. This is likely only viable for heavy spenders as the gem repair cost could be very high. However, it is particularly potent and will cause huge damage to the enemy.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Attack – Siege Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Range Bonus – Siege Machine Range +200
  • Lvl 4 March Size – March Size +12%
  • 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 PvP

Although not quite as damaging as a pure siege march, this mixes in ranged troops and will keep your siege repair costs lower. The siege machines will also be effective at reducing the enemy numbers that your ranged troops will face by taking them out at greater range.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Siege Machine Range Bonus – Siege Machine Range +200
  • Lvl 4 March Size – March Size +12%
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Axe – Siege Machine 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
