x How To: Best Ships for Robbery
Sailing is very important gameplay in ArcheAge online, especially you need trade to earn currency in the middle and late game. If you want to make a profitable trade, the best way is across the sea trading with your ships, such as the players of western continent from Sanddeep to Mirage Isle, the players of eastern continent form Ynystere to Sanddeep. As these trade routes relatively fixed, so you often face the enemies or pirate players robbed to get loot.
Harpoon Clipper low-cost vessels, 50 Gilda Star with some materials. It is can be said to be born specifically for robbery. Speed is 11.1m/s, it is the fastest vessel with non-Buff, 1 driver and 1 harpoon gunner, can carry about 10 players.
The greatest feature is harpoon cannon, once hit the target (enemy or allies) successfully, your vessel will automatically drag to the target, so just need you hit enemy successfully in Naval Battle, after wait the distance close enough, then the players on board with glider jump to enemy’s ship to kill them. Drawback is no radar, so the success rate is very low if you hunting alone, in general, need an auxiliary warship at least or a combination of multiple harpoon clipper to search.
This ship is not small, 250 Gilda Star, need 6 players at least to ensure the combat effectiveness, of which 1 captain, 1 navigator (radar), 4 gunners to ensure a side of ship can fire at least. This ship can carry 20 + players, is a type of group battle warship, can be used as a Clipper is scheduling by command ship, also as escort ship beside in cargo ships. Of course, it can also composed of battle with other warships in Naval Battle. Drawback is the speed too slow 10.8m/s, if the enemy is a clipper, you can not catch it, if the enemy is a trading ship, there is still likely to be run away though you blocked them. But this shortcoming make up the perfect by the ultimate vessel of Black Pearl.
Adventure Clipper are like the Harpoon Clipper, the difference is the weapon of Harpoon Clipper is harpoon and the weapon of Adventure Clipper is a cannon. The availability of this clipper is very lower than Harpoon Clipper and Eznan Cutter, personal think the role of this clipper is peripheral guerrilla in group naval battle, and destroy the enemy’s ship according to fighting that time.
Black Pearl is the cool and most powerful warship, the shape like the Eznan Cutter, the different is more than one cannon on each side of the vessel, the radar distance doubled can cover than half of the sea, and the speed can up to 14.2m/s with accelerate the shift towards ability. Of course, Black Pearl is hard to get, this design need the 55 piece of fragment of design to change, each price of fragment are associated with a clipper, but the damage is very big once you use black pearl, other ship can not escape as long as the fire not so strong, if enemy’s fire stronger than you, they also can not catch you. Black Pearl is can said the artifact for pirates in the sea. But its disadvantage is too expensive!
Every players has their own a routine for robbery, so how to do once you faced the robbery? If you are a junior trader with a clipper, do not panic to change your direction, keep your direction will have a great chance to escape. If you are a senior trader, the best way to prevent robbed is trade not alone, and have a few players can escort your ship, just only way to ensure each trade smoothly.
