Picking Your Starting General
Your mission of ruthless pacification will be nearly impossible without the help of a reliable comrade. Below are detailed profiles for each starting General. Choose wisely!
Stats: Strength 52, Bravery 80, Intelligence 48
Gambit: Thunder Strike
Unit Type: Phoenix Rider
Rock is a popular choice among new players. His normal attack is pretty decent, and his gambit attack is especially deadly. He can also Block, Dodge, and deliver Critical Strikes.
Stats: Strength 47, Bravery 59, Intelligence 74
Gambit: Special Forces
Unit Type: Mounted Bowmen
Dragon has a high chance to Critical Strike. His Gambit also slowly reduces the units of enemy generals. He is a good overall pick and fairly well-balanced.
Stats: Strength 74, Bravery 57, Intelligence 49
Gambit: Demoralizing Shout
Unit Type: Magma Launcher
Jasper has a powerful normal attack and a high chance of Critical Strike. His Gambit reduces the morale of all enemy generals, greatly reducing the threat of their Gambit strikes. At the beginning this ability is not very useful, but against later armies with morale boosting units, it is particularly potent.
Stats: Strength 76, Bravery 50, Intelligence 54
Gambit: Iron Will
Unit Type: Maul Infantry
Zen has a decent normal attack, but his strength lies in his defense. After initiating his Gambit, the damage from enemy attacks will be reduced to 1. Unfortunately, once you unlock Hua Xiong around Level 10, Zen becomes fairly obsolete because Hua Xiong has the same ability with better stats. However, if you put them together in a Formation, the strong defense may be enough to overwhelm enemy armies.
Strength 75, Bravery 49, Intelligence 52
Unit Type: Guerrilla Corp
Orchid is a favorite among new players. She has a vicious normal attack and a high chance of dodging attacks. Her gambit reduces one enemy general’s morale to zero, effectively shutting down any gambit powerhouse you might go up against.
Strength 43, Bravery 77, Intelligence 60
Gambit: Line Breaker
Unit Type: Inferno Rider
Daisy is favored by ladies and gents alike. Her units are quick on their feet and often enjoy the luxury of first strike. Her linear gambit is also quite deadly against enemy armies that are not spread evenly between the center and two wings.
Strength 59, Bravery 60, Intelligence 71
Unit Type: Stone Bowmen
Jasmine is from a small city north of the Great Wall and uses a vicious longbow as her weapon of choice. Her high block rate and panic-inducing gambit are a nightmare for all types of enemies. Players love her.
Strength 63, Bravery 45, Intelligence 72
Gambit: Full Assault
Unit Type: War Elephant
Jade has excellent defense and can sustain the deadliest of attacks relatively unscathed. Her normal attack doesn't have much punch, but her linear gambit can do a good chunk of damage if she has the right horse.
