Evony: Zizka

Although you can use Zizka for any activity in Evony, he is a pure Subordinate City PvP General that can fight other players.

As the lord or lady of an empire in this exciting video game, Evony: The King’s Return, you have many responsibilities.

You have to harvest resources, vanquish monsters, explore relics, train troops and construct buildings.


To aid you with these tasks, you can purchase a variety of Generals, one of which is Zizka. This Bohemian national hero is considered one of the greatest military commanders in History.

Similarly to other Generals in Evony, Zizka has several abilities that you can use to your advantage. His special skill, Battle of Kutna Hora, reduces ranged troops’ attack by 40 percent.

It also decreases enemy ranged troops and siege machines’ defenses and health points when he is leading the army. Players should note that this special skill is always active and requires no development.

However, you can focus on developing Zizka’s specialities to enhance his capabilities. Every General has 4 unique specialities which can be used on the battlefield.

Zizka’s Siege Machine Defense speciality increases a siege machine’s health points and defense by 10 percent respectively.

Sabotage, on the other hand, decreases enemy troop defense by 10 percent while War God increases all troops’ attack by 6 percent.

His last speciality, Wagenburg Tactics, decreases enemy ranged troop and siege machine attack by 30 percent. However, it also decreases enemy ranged troop defense and health points by 20 percent each.

We therefore recommend that you enhance his specialities to improve his performance on the battlefield. Keep in mind, though, that his statistics also influence  his performance.
