“A hero and symbol of France!” Edit
Along with Alexander the Great and Cleopatra, Joan of Arc is one of the three Generals unlocked when you first build the Castle in Medieval Age. After level 21 these Generals will ride tanks and have 3 range.
Historical Description Edit
Joan of Arc, a peasant girl living in medieval France, believed that God had chosen her to lead France to victory in its long-running war with England. With no military training, Joan convinced the embattled crown prince Charles of Valois to allow her to lead a French army to the besieged city of Orléans, where it achieved a momentous victory over the English and their French allies, the Burgundians. After seeing the prince crowned King Charles VII, Joan was captured by Anglo-Burgundian forces, tried for witchcraft and heresy and burned at the stake in 1431, at the age of 19. By the time she was officially canonized in 1920, the Maid of Orléans (as she was known) had long been considered one of history’s greatest saints, and an enduring symbol of French unity and nationalism.
Attacking Strategies Edit
- Joan of Arc can tank up defensive damage and deal damage to enemy defenses/troops.
- AVOID ballistics towers, cannons, or anti-tank towers with Joan of Arc. These defense buildings are designed to take out any troop/general that has high hit-points.
- A good way to avoid the Cannons is to rally straight back out of your clean path near buildings, bringing your troops back with your generals to help escort her or for Joan of Ark to kill any cavalry, foot troop, or general stalking your troops
- Avoid rallying at 45 degree angles, since your troops are defenseless until meeting the rally point, and it is very possible cannons, towers, and troops can kill Joan of Ark and your troops if you pass by the defense buildings.
- If you are attacking without tanks with your troops, Joan of Arc can take up some of the damage, and is best used to take out mortar fire. Beware not to rally your troops with Joan of Ark to a Mortar that can still hit your troops, since it will turn into that Joan of Arc will be the only one alive.
- (Mainly used for Medieval age) If a mortar is in position to wipe out troops, but is easily accessible without Cannons in range, put Joan of Arc down and rally her to the Mortar to wipe it out. Then continue your attack with placement of troops and tactics.
Note - Starting at level 10 the Generals stats include all 4 chapters of Leadership research 10% extra health and attack.
- Joan of Arc's horse is the same as the Guard Chevalier's.
- Joan of Arc was the daughter of a tenant farmer, Jacques d’Arc, from the village of Domrémy, in northeastern France.
- Joan began to hear voices, which she determined had been sent by God to give her a mission of overwhelming importance: to save France by expelling its enemies, and to install Charles as its rightful king.
- In May 1431, after a year in captivity and under threat of death, Joan relented and signed a confession denying that she had ever received divine guidance. Several days later, however, she defied orders by again donning men’s clothes, and authorities pronounced her death sentence.
- On the morning of May 30, at the age of 19, Joan was taken to the old market place of Rouen and burned at the stake.
