Is Napoleon a good general in Evony?

One of the best Siege Generals in the game, Napoleon has a huge Siege Machine attack once all specialties have been maxed out. In addition, he can be used as a Ranged PvP General, however, there are several better options here.

Most of his attack buff is only active when attacking, so he should not be used as a Defense General.

Napoleon – 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.

Napoleon – 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 a 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
