Is Zhao Yun a good general in Evony?

This Evony General is very effective when making use of mounted troops in attack. Indeed, he can be used for both Monster Hunting and Mounted PvP.

In addition to this, Zhao Yun’s Special Skill also gives Ground Troops under his command a good boost. Therefore, for players looking to utilize a mixed Ground and Mounted March, he can make a great option.

Lastly, despite his Special Skill only being effective in attack, he ranks surprsingly well as a Mounted Defense General. However, he should be used here only if you have fully maxed him out. His final specialty must be completed to be of any use here. Therefore, there are better options for Defense.

Zhao Yun – Builds

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

Big Prey Hunter

This build is ideal for players who are looking to take down big monster prey. It sacrifices everything in favor of mounted attack and mounted HP via equipment refines and skill books.

This build will ensure you do maximum damage to boss monsters on the first hit. This will minimize your losses and allow you to take on higher-level bosses for better rewards.

  • Skill Books:
  • Lvl 4 Mounted Troop Attack Against Monster – Mounted Attack Against Monster +45%
  • Lvl 4 Mounted Troop Attack – Mounted Attack +25%

Looter Hunter Hybrid

This build will allow you to take down big boss monsters whilst also maximizing your loot return. It replaces the march size skill book with the luck skill book to increase the double item drop rate.

This will of course decrease your damage output slightly. However, the double drops are good compensation.

Mounted PvP

Mounted PvP can be very useful in the early and late stages of the game. Early game, players will have huge, mounted marches which you can destroy with your higher mounted buff.

Late game you will start to come across keeps set up with ground troop defenses, mounted troops annihilate them. This build will maximize your mounted attack and mounted HP for a mounted PvP march.

Mounted & Ground Rush

Hannibal’s skills also set him up nicely for a mixed Mounted and Ground march for PvP. This is a slightly more niche attack, and you must be careful to scout your enemy before using it.

You will need to vary the ratio of mounted to ground troops depending on the defense. It relies on speed to get your troops into the action as quickly as possible to avoid too many getting picked off at range.
