Is Winfield Scott a good general in Evony?

Once fully leveled and specialties maxed out, Winfield Scott has a very good ranged attack. However, he does have some shortcomings vs. other high-ranking ranged generals. Firstly, much of his attack is tied up in the final specialty.

This is very expensive to max out. Additionally, his ranged troop HP is very low making his attack a little more squishy than other generals. Lastly, he is really a ranged specialist, making him less versatile for example if you wanted to use a siege and ranged mixed march.

If you have the option, you are better off going for another general of the same rank.

Winfield Scott – Builds

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

Ranged PvP

This build is ideal for players who are very range heavy. It sacrifices everything in favor of ranged attack whilst also topping up ranged troop HP and Defense via equipment refines.

This build will ensure you do maximum damage, especially in the early game when players are quite mounted heavy. You can alternatively swap March Size for Ranged Troop HP if you want to give your Ranged troops a bit more durability.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Attack – Ranged Attack +25%
  • Lvl 4 Ranged Troop Range Bonus – Ranged Troop Range +100
  • Lvl 4 March Size – March Size +12%
  • Equipment Refines:
  • Bow – Ranged Troop Attack % x4
  • Armor – Ranged Troop Defense % x4
