General

Description

Your Generals are purchased at the Tavern and allow you to place Garrisons, organize attack forces, enguage in battles to take new territory and win Adventures.

Early in the game you can manage with a single general but once you are able to garrison over 200 troops you will need a second one and having two allows you to more quickly move around the battlefield. Once you reach Level 26 and Adventures begin, 3 Generals is pretty much a necessessity to ferry enough troops into the warzone (basic is 30 min. each way travel to an Adventure).

Injury

Recovering.png

For the most part you don't want your general to be left alone and if your army is wiped out he will almost certainly get injured causing him to retreat to his camp where he recovers over the next 4 hours. You can also use the Medipack to revive the General at once.

After 4 hours have elapsed he can organise his troops, move and attack once more.

Types of Generals

The game possess a variety of different generals. Each general has different 'stats' that can be useful.
