Is Petronas a good general in Evony?

Petronas is a quality option as an Evony Siege General. Once fully developed, he has one of the highest Siege Machine attacks in the game. Unfortunately, 30% of this attack buff does come from his final specialty which will take a large number of resources to attain.

This Evony General can also prove useful in a mixed march. Indeed, his skills and specialties also give some nice buffs to ranged troops. As such, for players making use of both these troop types he can be a great option.

He can also be ascended for further siege buffs however he is not an easy general to go hold of. Therefore, as a candidate for ascension, he is a difficult option that will require a lot of spending to attain sufficient fragments.

Petronas – 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 Guide for more details on Evony General Ascension.

Petronas – 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 big 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 Range PvP

This build focuses on a mixed range and siege PvP march. It looks to increase the damage output of both troop types whilst also increasing the ranged troop range.

You can always swap this for siege range if you prefer. However, we favor it on the ranged troops since siege machines already have an incredible attack range.

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