Is Roland a good general in Evony?

Once fully leveled, and specializations maxed out, Roland has one of the highest mounted attacks against monsters and other players. His special skill is also highly specialized with his mounted attack, defense, and HP all getting a massive boost right from level 1.

This makes him a great option if you can get your hands on him. Indeed, if you do not plan to maximize the final specialization, due to cost, then Roland gains a slight advantage over Hannibal who currently sits above him in the rankings.
