Fortifications

From Plarium Games Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are two types of Defensive buildings: Beachhead Fortifications (under the «Fortifications» tab on the «Construction» menu) and Improvements (under the «Improvements» tab on the «Construction» menu). To purchase Defensive buildings, you need Rubies and Resources. Your Beachhead is the colored perimeter standing between your Haven and the sea. You can build Walls, Towers, Gates, Cannon, Crow's Nests, and Harpoon guns along this line to improve the defensive capability of all Crew within your Haven. Better Fortifications will become available as you make more advanced Discoveries.

Defense Bonus

Defense Bonuses increase the defensive rating of your Haven's defenders. Build Fortifications (Walls, Towers, Gates, etc.) and Improvements (Brick roads, Planks, etc.) to increase your Haven's overall Defense Bonus. But it won't do you much good without Defensive Crew . It's your Pirates that do the fighting not your walls.

Wall

Each segment of Wall you build helps to increase your Haven's Defense bonus. It also serves as a platform for installing Harpoon guns, Cannons and Crow's Nests. The number of Walls you can build is limited only by your Haven's size. Walls can be only be installed along the grey beachhead line along the outside of your Haven. Research Beachhead Discoveries (Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4) to gain access to more advanced beachhead Walls.

To build a Wall:

  1. Go to your Haven.
  2. Click «Construction».
  3. Open the «Defensive» tab and select the Wall.
  4. Choose an area along your beachhead and start building.

This simple wooden palisade slows down attackers enough to pick them off and cut them down... It's also a fine way make your Pirate town look intimidating.
Haven Defense Bonus: +20 Experience:10
These thick wooden walls are packed tight with sand and rocks, making them far stronger against cannon fire than your wooden palisades.

Haven Defense Bonus: +40 Experience: 20

With these thick stone walls only the most stalwart crew with the strongest of cannon could hope to breach these walls and enter your Haven without permission.

Haven Defense Bonus: +60 Experience: 30

Any Captain crazy enough to order his men to storm these walls will find himself voted down to Cabin Boy - pirates don't think much of suicide missions.

Haven Defense Bonus: +30 Experience: 40

We have a miracle of military engineering! Or at least a much better Tower than the previous one...

Haven Defense Bonus: +60 Experience: 50

If you must negotiate with the Royal Navy, it's best to do it from behind the battlements of your fine stone towers.

Haven Defense Bonus: +90 Experience: 60

The best way to attack these towers is to wait a thousand years for them to crumble, then have your pirate descendants attack them, sir.

Haven Defense Bonus: +60 Experience: 50

These are a fine improvement over the older gates, Captain. But you'd better think of a better password than "Arrrrrrrgh!" or there might be some problems...

Haven Defense Bonus: +120 Experience: 60

There's something about a massive stone gate that says, "Abandon all hope those who enter here!" - which I think is what you're going for, sir.

Haven Defense Bonus: +180 Experience: 80

True pirates would follow a fearless Captain through the very gates of Hell itself... but he'd be on his own against this one.
