Evony: General Trajan

In Evony, players can acquire an array of Generals, one of which is Trajan, who is considered one of the best player-versus-player ground Generals.

Evony: The King’s Return is a tactical, exciting mobile game that invites gamers to assume the role of a lord or lady.

Since the game is based on the renowned video game, Evony, you will likely encounter similar mechanics and features in both versions. The objective of the game is to build an empire from the ground up in medieval times.

There are many various activities and occasional events you can enjoy in this mobile game, but you first have to acquire some Generals. You should note that some activities may initially be locked, however, you can access them once you have met the requirements to do so.

Are Generals important?

Although to some, Generals may seem like an insignificant aspect, they are an essential part of the game. This is because players need Generals in everything they do, including fighting, crafting, building, researching, and gathering.

Apparently, the better the quality of the General, the more effective they are, which can influence your gameplay significantly.

Some Generals have the ability to perform better in specific activities or tasks than others. For instance, Simeon the Great is one of the best Generals to use in a player-versus-player ranged attack, but it is recommended that you do not use him for attacks with ground troops.

Players should carefully consider their Generals’ statistics and abilities before allocating them to a specific building or troop.

Trajan’s build

Trajan should be used in a very ground-heavy combat strategy. His build sacrifices everything in favour of ground attack, health, and speed. However, this build works well for both a ground attack march and a Wall Defence General in a player-versus-player gaming mode.

With this build, your ground troops will get to the enemy quicker and they will benefit from additional health points. It is advisable that you use the following skill books:

  • Level 4 Ground Troop Attack: Ground Attack increased by 25 percent
  • Level 4 Ground Troop Health Points: Ground Health points increased by 25 percent
  • Level 4 Ground Troop Speed: Ground speed increased by 20 percent

The following equipment refines should be applied:

Item Equipment refine
Sword Ground Troop Attack percentage x 4
Armour Ground Troop Defence percentage x 4
Boots Ground Troop Defence percentage x 4
Helmet Ground Troop Health Points percentage x 4
Leg Armour Ground Troop Health Points percentage x 4
Ring Ground Troop Attack percentage x 4


How to acquire Trajan

Evony players can purchase Trajan in the Tavern, which can be found in their keep, for approximately 35 000 000 gold, though you first have to upgrade your Tavern before you can purchase him. You can only purchase Common and Uncommon Generals if your Tavern is on level 10 or below.

The Tavern refreshes its Generals every 4 hours, so it is advised that you check the purchasable Generals regularly.
