One of the Epic, Historic Generals you can collect in Evony is Abd al-Rahman I, and he should mainly be used as a duty character.
Evony: The King’s Return is a thrilling mobile game in which you can assume the role of a lady or a lord in medieval times. The objective of the game is for players to build an empire from the ground up and to become powerful leaders.
As the game’s name suggests, it is based on the well-renowned video game, Evony. As such, you will encounter similar dynamics in both versions.
Similarly to its predecessor, The King’s Return offers you an array of Generals to acquire and play with, but some Generals will be locked initially.
Luckily, you can collect them once you have met the requirements. Once you have acquired some Generals, you can enjoy all the activities and events the game has to offer.
Types of Generals
Generals are an essential part of the game, as they are your troops’ leaders. In addition to leading armies, Generals can gather resources, attack monsters, defeat world bosses, act as Subordinate City mayors, and defend your keep, among other things.
They are divided into categories, which are determined by their rarity. It is alleged that Generals with a higher rarity are stronger than Generals who can be acquired easily.
A General’s rarity is indicated by the colour of their card. Listed below are the corresponding colours and rarities.
Evony: Abd al-Rahman I
One of the Epic, Historic Generals you can acquire in Evony is Abd al-Rahman I, who is the founder of the Umayyad Emirate of Cordoba. Because of his contributions to Spain, he was known as The Eagle of Quraysh.
Like other Generals, Abd al-Rahman possesses a unique skill called Eagle of Conquest. This skill increases ground troops’ attack, defence, and health points by 20 percent.
It also speeds up ground troops’ training by 20 percent, however, Abd al-Rahman must be the Barracks Officer to benefit from these increases.
In addition to a special skill, the General has several specialities, which are listed in the table below. They are:
|Ground Troop Assault||Ground troops’ health points and attack is increased by 10 percent.|

|Sage||It only applies to the Barracks officer. This speciality increases ground troop training speed and capacity by 20 percent.|
|Conquest of Spain||It increases ground troop training speed by 26 percent, while ground troop training capacity is increased by 20 percent. However, it only applies to the Barracks Officer|
Abd al-Rahman I statistics

|Statistic||Level 1 with no stars||Level 35 with 5 stars||Fully cultivated level 35 with 5-stars||Fully cultivated level 40 with 5-stars|
How to acquire Abd al-Rahman I
In your Keep, you will find the Tavern, where you can purchase additional Generals. Players can upgrade their Tavern to unlock more high-quality Generals. If your Tavern is on level 10 or lower, you will only be able to recruit Common and Uncommon Generals.
That being said, Historic Generals can be recruited from a high-level Tavern. This means that you have to upgrade your Tavern to a higher level before you can purchase Abd al-Rahman I. Players can find him in the Arabia section of the Tavern.
Keep in mind that the Tavern regularly refreshes its available Generals. This means that you have to check which Generals are available regularly.
Does Abd al-Rahman I have a specific build?
Since Abd al-Rahman is a pure Duty General in Evony, there is no need to equip him with additional skill books or equipment. This is because these features will have no impact on the General while he is on duty at a building. Instead, you can focus on cultivation to improve his duty rank.
