In Evony, Generals play a crucial role in every monarch’s rise to power. A General’s strength is directly tied to their level, which in turn depends on their EXP (experience). There are numerous ways to earn General EXP in Evony. Today, let’s explore six main effective methods to increase General EXP, along with other techniques.

The 6 Effective Ways to Increase General EXP:

No.1 Killing Troops

Killing or injuring enemy troops is an efficient way to improve a General’s EXP.
The EXP you get is related to the number of troops you kill or injure.
Therefore, if there are no troops in the enemy’s castle, your lead general will not gain EXP.
Under this logic, killing NPC troops in subordinate cities is also effective for upgrading Generals. [PS: You should make your subordinate city slots full when you do this way.]
The better the quality of the subordinate city being attacked, the more experience your Generals can gain, and the faster their experience can increase. So, try to choose a golden subordinate city to make multiple attacks.
  1. Killing Troops in the Battlefield is not a recommended way to upgrade Generals because the General EXP gained in this way is only 30% of what it is out of the battlefield.
  2. When you match with Subordinate Cities, the experience of your Marching Main and Assistant Generals, Main City Defense Main and Assistant Generals, and Subordinate City Generals will improve together. In this case, you can appoint the General who you want to upgrade as a Mayor.
  3. The EXP gained by the Main and Assistant Generals is equal. And the EXP they gain is related to how many troops they kill or injure through attack or defense.
  4. The EXP that each Mayor can gain depends on the number of enemy troops his or her sub-city troops kill or damage. The higher the Subordinate City level and the more troops it has, the more enemies it can kill or damage.
