Wallenstein is a new General in Evony, however, upgrading him to the fullest requires a vast amount of resources.
Evony: The King’s Return is an exciting mobile game that invites you to assume the role of a lord or lady in the medieval era.
As the name suggests, it is based on the classic video game, Evony, which means that you are likely to experience the same features and gameplay in both games.
As the player, it is your responsibility to build an empire from scratch and defend your keep from attacks. To aid you in your quest, you can recruit troops and Generals. One of the Generals that you can collect is Wallenstein, who is a Bohemian military leader.
Why are Generals important?
Although Generals may seem like an inconsequential aspect of Evony, they are a vital component of the game. This is because you use them in everything you do, including fighting, crafting, researching, and constructing.
There are numerous Generals that you can collect, each of which serves a unique role. The better the General is, the more effectively they will function in their role. Some Generals perform best in the player-versus-player mode, while others help you gather the most resources.
It is thus essential that you select the correct General before you start with any activity in Evony.
The game’s developer, Evony, occasionally introduces new features and activities to keep players interested in the game. They recently added a new General called Wallenstein.
Wallenstein is a Bohemian military leader and statesman who fought on the side of the Holy Roman Empire during the Thirty Years War.
Similarly to other Generals in Evony, Wallenstein has several statistics, namely:
He excels as a ranged General in the player-versus-player mode. When fully developed, his range attack is extremely powerful, and he has the additional bonus of a buff to rally capacity.
This is extremely helpful when you are attempting to defeat a big player with your Alliance. Unfortunately, players must spend approximately 60 million gold to collect Wallenstein, thus, he is suitable for high spenders.
It also makes ascending him quite difficult, and he relies on his final speciality to add 40 percent ranged attack to his buff. If you are a low-spender, or a free-to-play player, you should rather use Wallenstein as an Assistant General.
Although Wallenstein performs well as an Evony Defence General, it is advisable that you never use him in this role. This is because it requires that you complete his final speciality which needs a huge quantity of resources.
It is recommended that you rather use Wallenstein as a PvP General, or as an Assistant General.
Generals in Evony have specialities which are only unlocked when they reach level 25. These specialities can be expensive to develop, as they require Gems and Runestones. The table below lists Wallenstein’s specialities:
|Battle of the Alte Veste||
|Ranged Troop Assault||
