Is Philip II a good general in Evony?

This Evony General is great for players that are making use of Siege Troops. Once fully developed, he has a huge Siege attack stat.

He is one of the best Evony Siege PvP Generals with a solid 25% Siege attack buff just from his Special Skill. Additionally, he has a 10% Rally Capacity buff which is very useful for active PvP alliances.

Although his special skill is only active in attack, if you fully develop his specialties, he can also be a useful Evony Defense General. However, this is an expensive option and there are better options available.

Philip II – 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.
