To pair and use General John Hunyadi more reasonably, we prepared this article to help you understand him better.

The General Story of John Hunyadi

In 1456, after days of siege, the Belgrade fortress finally saw reinforcements' arrival. John Hunyadi, the Regent of Hungary, led his knights like a storm in a relentless assault against the Ottoman forces encamped outside the city.
Amidst the deafening roar of arrows and cannon fire on the battlefield, Hunyadi swiftly broke through the enemy's rear defenses. Although the enemy attempted to secure the fortress, Hunyadi's foresight anticipated their move. He set fire to the walls of Belgrade with tar and cannon, turning the fortifications into a raging inferno. His strategic brilliance resolved the crisis of the breached fortress, leaving the Ottoman forces in disarray, unable to withstand his onslaught.
After a night of relentless pursuit, Hunyadi emerged victorious from the siege of Belgrade. This triumph not only earned him the title of ‘Defender', but also shattered the Ottoman Empire's ambitions to invade Europe.
Possessing not only supreme military acumen but also the brave spirit of a knight, Hunyadi became known as the ‘White Knight of Wallachia'.

The General Combinations of John Hunyadi

If you have 's and do not consider the Covenant function, it is recommended to still use Pallas as the , because you can avoid re-training the Main General. In addition, since Pallas's original special skill requires carrying a or Spiritual Beast to be fully effective, if she is used as an , both the Main General and the Assistant General need to carry a Dragon or Spiritual Beast to gain as many . But the buffs of the Dragon or Spiritual Beast carried by the Assistant General will not take effect, so it is a little wasteful.
On the other hand, we tend to choose John Hunyadi as the Main General considering the Covenant function, because Pallas currently has no Covenant attributes that can be unlocked. But if Evony adds this function to Pallas in the future, it may have to be a different matter.
The combinations we recommend are shown in the table below.
