A few questions please...

Recommended Posts

0 - If a character is unconscious at the end of a battle, does he/she still get the experience?

 

These all related to ships/naval battles:

 

1- Is it worth investing in bigger ships (very expensive)?  I would rather upgrade some of my weapons to "superb" (30.000).  And i noticed you can still "ram" on bigger ships and solve the matter on board with a standard fight.

 

2- If you sink the enemy ship, you don't get any loot?

 

3 - what are your basic strategies, you shoot cannon (to sails, hull or crew?) then you close in and fight on board?

 

4 - how come i always miss with my cannon shots (expert or seasoned cannoneers) while enemies always hit me? :(

 

Thank you!

YOU CAN KILL CREW WITH YOUR CANNONS TO REDUCE THE ENEMIE NUMBERS

 

2- If you sink the enemy ship, you don't get any loot?YES ALL OF IT 

 

3 - what are your basic strategies, you shoot cannon (to sails, hull or crew?) then you close in and fight on board? I WILL POST YOU A LINK

The basic approach is:

 

Get in range of your cannons with Full Sail

 

Turn to board or starboard

 

Hold Position (increases ACC a lot)

 

Fire cannons

 

Jibe

 

Hold Position

 

Fire

 

Jibe

 

...and so on

0) I haven't been checking but considering my mercs that I recruit at the same level always have pretty much identical experience I would assume yes

 

1) If you want to sink rather than board, yeah. But there are people who can play the broadside game with just a sloop (starting ship) or dhow.

 

2) You get less loot, but "important" loot will always conveniently float ;)

 

3) If you wanna sink, cannonball the hull. If you wanna board, board (manually). Other options suck :(

 

4) Maybe you're not at an ideal range for your cannons. Using 1 turn on halting before firing also improves accuracy.

many thanks, i was missing the HOLD command. I will experiment with some of this. I have 4 or 5 bounties to hunt for..

 

I presume shooting at the sails is just a waste then, unless you want to escape and they are faster than you

You can sink (rather than board) with the sloop too. It’s not an “either/or” proposition.

Nah, you can easily sink any ship with a Dhow (probably even a sloop, I just bought a Dhow halfway through cause it was cheap).

 

I never went past a Dhow and I have no problem sinking Junks on the regular.
