How to get new Evony generals?

In case you just started the game, and you didn't know, you can acquire generals from the tavern at any given time.

1
Best Ground Generals

Best Ground Generals

Peter the Great Scipio Africanus Trajan Elise Carus
Ground troops excel in battles against ranged units, as they counter them pretty hard. Since ground troops are tanky units, HP and DEF are very important to them.

2
Best Mounted Generals

Best Mounted Generals

Martinus Li Jing Roland Hannibal Washington
Mounted troops are the best type when it comes to boss killing in Evony. They also perform very well when they go up against ground troops. The most important stats for them are ATK,HP, DEF.

3
Best Ranged Generals

Best Ranged Generals

Minamoto no Yoshitsune Elektra Alfred the Great Tomyris Simeon the Great
Ranged units are the natural counter to mounted forces due to their range. Their best defence is attack, as they want to eliminate the enemies before they get close. Because of that, high ATK is a priority.

4
Best Siege Generals

Best Siege Generals

Ramesses II Ulysses S. Grant Matthias I Napoleon Emperor Qin Shihuang
Siege units have the longest range of attack in Evony. They are mostly used as city defenders or attackers in the later stages of the game, as they are expensive to heal. High ATK buff is important.

5
Best Wall Generals

Best Wall Generals

Zachary Taylor Leo III Leonidas I
These are the best defensive generals for Ranged, Siege and Ground focused forces respectively. Keep in mind that these generals will lead all of your troops, not just a certain type. Because of that, skills that benefit more than a single type of units are essential. Defending with a mounted focused army will put you at a great disadvantage, since most players attack with ranged units. These are the very best for each type, but, that doesn't mean there are no other viable choices. In the end, it comes down to your composition. As a new player, defending your city shouldn't be a priority.

6
Best Resource Gathering Generals

Best Resource Gathering Generals

Queen Jindeok
There's no complicated answer here. It's simple. Queen Jindeok is by far the best choice.
