I have purchase most of the Monthly Generals except Lyra, Dexter, Gorlak, Scarlett. I kinda think they suck :D . I have 40FP and am contemplating to buy one more. Which one should I buy?

Or should I save for the next one or try my luck with the chests?

I have currently 40 generals.

I got Lyra in the end. I misunderstood her abilities and under-estimated her. Cheers

There is a thread that is maintained in these forums, which has direct links to buy any monthly general or their gear. You don't have to wait until they're on your front page.

At level 4 Scarlett gives a 6% income increase. Stats lvl4: 20att and 20def

Ok, you really should have Barbarus. And Lyra is very good for duelling. But don't forget Scarlett - 6% increase on your gold income: that's 1% better than Mercedes, and you spend an awful lot of time waiting for refills on stamina and energy: time that you could be making money!!!

I just purchased my first monthly general, and it was Barbarus. Now, I need someone to check my logic here on deciding not to use him in active combat. While he does truly impressive damage, burning 3 times the stamina reduces the chances of critical hits, and thus reduces the total damage done in monster combat. And also, 21 attack, while high, is still inferior to the 26 that Zarevok has after modifier. Thus, I have relegated Barbarus to a slot in my war council and continue to use Zarevok for my everyday monster bashing.

Good decision, or not? And if not, why?

Dude he's awesome! I can crit for more 1 million in damage. Especially useful on serpents because they hit hard on the ship defense.

Another very good use of Barbarus: when you forget the time of leveling and realizing you still have 150 worth of stam otherwise going to waste. Time to hit World monster with barbarus and 50 stamina power attack link! Pow!!! 150 stamina power attack! And level up! :D

Do you have Orc King? If you do, forget Barbarus. If you don't, get him!

Scarlett is actually a good bench warmer. She's good if you have Kayleen or Malekus. +1% money than Mercedes is actually a plus. But her biggest strength is her stats which is way superior than Mercedes.

And where in the hell is this magic thread? I'm not finding anything.

Use this wiki link, very up to date, can view generals and their items and it also offers you the option to buy them.

http://castleage.wikia.com/wiki/Castle_Age_Wiki

To buy, search for game information then click oracle guide, then monthly special. Scroll down, and there are links for you to buy them.
