  • Is leveling unused generals useful?

    I know that the total count of heroes and generals is used during battles (along with equipment counts). But are their levels also taken into account? My assumption is no, but as I have a surplus of XP potions, I'm wondering if I should bother leveling the old heroes or just keep saving the potions for the distant future when I get enough resources to level the ones I do use.

    Well, I think I've found the answer here:
    Invading is a type of PvP when you attack someone with your army (as opposed to Dueling where you fight alone). After training in the Training Grounds and reaching invading level 2, invading other players "levels" your invading, which increases your Defense skill by 1 for each invading level...

      I think the stats of your generals do matter. However leveling them up just for this purpose would be a waste IMO. At low levels your generals' stats don't increase much with each level. And invade is an old feature which has no use once you're High King.

      I'd keep lvl 1 generals to complete the "Level up your Hero!" task when you get it in a Hard Campaign. Then it's easy to reach 20 level-ups and get 60 Epic Shards for it.

      Also, I've heard that alliance stats matter for Invade. I'm not sure of this, I haven't tested it. But that would mean that you should put your 2 highest level generals behind all of your unused generals to get a huge overall stats boost for Invade.

        This is something I do a fair amount of.

        I've heard this too, but I'm not sure I believe it. It's a hard theory to test.

          Overall, no. Adding stars to unused generals is a waste, too, if those FP can be used to increase the quantity of generals for invasions, or for special powers based on quantity of generals. I've wasted a lot of FP realizing this.

          For secondary alliance generals that will never be the lead, I've decided to limit even their stars to 3, and their level to 54. Then I can use those resources for the lead generals.

                Leveling generals is one of those tasks that I ignore.

                It’s really rare that I will level a General and that coincides with a campaign task.

                For me, hero crystals and green crystals are my bottlenecks to level up generals so I cannot squander the those hard to get resources.

                  I leveled Kath to lvl 80, then Barbarus and then MK. Hera (lvl 79), Trundle (lvl 79) Brackus (lvl 69), and Aethyx (lvl 64) are next on my list to lvl 80. 6* Dolomar is at lvl 79 and will stay there (he was made obsolete due to Moonlight Dragon). 8* Daphne is at at lvl 59 and will also stay there (made obsolete due to Groot).

                  So these 4 generals that I need to lvl up require a staggering amount of hero crystals and colored crystals with green crystals in short supply

                  So my question to you is: Are there maybe 5 or 6 generals you want to get as high as possible to get the maximum benefit out of each general?

                  My advice has always been best and highest use: Put your limited resources be it crystals or potions into a handful of generals to get the most enjoyment of the game.

                  I’ve always have recommended 5 generals to level up:
                  - Atk General
                  - Def General (when afk)
                  - Monster General
                  - and 2 special situation generals for guild battle, etc,

                  The problem with this game is that rules changes, better generals keep getting released, etc so we have to make new decisions regarding generals. Trundle caused me to retire a 4* Jera; the alliance rules revisions caused me to retire a 5* lvl 54 Maalvus; then Time Keeper became available via Colo, etc. It never ends.

                    Yes. I've lost count of how many times this game has shifted, and destroyed good plans and efforts. 😄

                        I would level unused generals through normal questing, healing or alike, but would not spend potions on them unless it is required as a Chaos Campaign task.

                          Thanks. I was thinking more along the lines of the very low level generals that you start out with and which quickly become obsolete. For example: When you battle another player, and it counts the number of generals you have vs the number they have, does it take into account their levels as well, or just the count?

                            levelling up old generals should probably be saved for when you need them for campaign.. save as many as you can at level 1 just for that..

                              I think the stats of your generals are taken into account when you Invade. That would make sense as the stats of your items and units are taken into account.
                              From what I've heard, it even takes into account the stats of the full alliance, meaning that you should put your ž strongest (best stats) generals behind all the generals you don't use to get a huge boost in power when Invading. I've never tested that myself though.

                              However, Invade is a tiny part of game and even if you use it, once you're High King it's basically useless.
                              So I wouldn't advise leveling up generals only to get a stats boost in Invade.
                              Linking high stats generals behind all your generals though doesn't cost anything.
