in my opinion all these vessels are great i couldn't rate them the war sloop is fast the war galleon has lots of brods and cargo space the war freight is an intercepter its made for wars.

so if you want to get from place to place fast get the sloop class

if you want tons of cargo and sail alone often get a galleon class

if you sail in a large crew and like to play svs get a freight class


i hope this helps

Post War Galleon or War Frigate?

I am trying to decide between these two ships. I'd like to hear peoples thoughts on which is better for the the Boss Battle for the Curse of the Black Pearl, which I am about to do, and which is better in general. I am usually sailing alone, or with one other person, so it seems as though the War Galleon would be better, but I am so tempted by the War Frigate. Would love to hear folks thoughts, thanks.

You sail the Pearl itself in the boss battle, your ship plays no role in the boss battle whatsoever.
I think the Pearl itself sails more like a galleon than a frigate however, and it has no front cannons.

I personally prefer the War Galleon, but usually the War Frigate is most popular because its basically 'easier' with front cannons and more firepower (although some think it actually looks neater.. again an opinion I do not share, but to each his own).

This guide is extremely inaccurate! ex:light sloop-2 cannons, 3 broadsides, 3 people aboard, and 3 cargo space. NOT 2 cannons, 2 people and no broadsides! edit this NOW!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure that any corrections and suggestions are welcome. However I do wonder what makes you think that its your place to order that this be edited "NOW". Seems rude to me.

Well as stated before - everyone knows that MY reason - just because it looks cool

If this is true then most people must think im crazy!!

I rutinely go after large ships with my light sloop. For the first couple weeks I didnt have full access and all i could have was the light sloop or a light galleon.

I figured out tha the light sloop can kick butt on a big ship real easy if you know how to sail one, and you dont need any crew.

All the big ships in this game have a big weakness, they cannot shoot thier canons to the rear. War Frigates have canons near the rear of the ship but are to high up to hit you when your really close.

So the trick is to use the light sloops speed to get right behind the enemy frigate, and i mean the front of your sloop is actually hitting the rear of the enemy boat.

Then simply use your speed to move right enough to bring your left broadsides to bear on the rear corner of the enemy frigate and fire, then quickly drop sail to bring yourself back to the rear of his boat, and raise sail again and attack the other corner of the enemy boat.

As long as you dont allow your sloop to move to far up the sides of the enemy boat it cant hit you no matter how many rounds he fires.

I call this poodling, since its very much akin to a small dog nipping at the heals of a bigger animal. takes awile to bring down a war frigate or war galleon, but Ive taken down Juggernauts, Man-o-wars, Warlords, omens and everything else.

Ive got a war frigate now but occasionally I still take out the light sloop for fun.

ship tactics

you can avoid being hit by enemy ships if you stay in its blindspots (eg back) or go past it so fast it cant react in time unfortunately these dont dont work well in pvp
