Why are items and gear important?

Even if sometimes the items in the game may seem unimportant, they can have a great impact on your game. This is because some items have the ability to increase your general’s statistics and power, while others can impact your troops on the battlefield.

That being said, you can still enjoy the game without any items or gear, but it is recommended that you make use of them, as it can make your gameplay and battles much better and easier. Subsequently, you could gain experience points much faster and level up more quickly in the game.

Evony: Dragons

One of the aspects that you will discover in the game is dragons, which are seen as support gear that you can equip your Generals with. They are able to increase and improve the Generals’ skills, statistics, and abilities.

The game currently features 7 unique dragons, each of which have their own buffs. You can select which buffs you want to activate through a process called refinement.

Please note that you have to train and level up a dragon in order to increase the number of buffs your General can receive. Many players believe that dragons are better than spiritual beasts, as they can give you 3 to 4 times more buffs.

Some Generals have abilities that will only be activated if you equip them with a dragon. It is thus advised that you check your General’s abilities, to see what type of dragon you need to activate their specific skills.
