Description[]

'My scouts had some trouble in approaching his columns, for his outriders have eyes like hawks; but they did get close enough to see the engines he is dragging on ox-cart wheels drawn by camels

Sometimes the proper tool for destruction is a giant ball of stone flung through the air from a trebuchet. Sometimes the proper tool for destruction is a bolt powerful enough to split a man in two. A ballista can do both. While the stones it fires aren't as large or powerful as the stone boulders flung from a trebuchet, it is much more accurate, allowing you to target the specific door or wall to destroy. Their bolts, on the other hand, provide reliable defense against intruders or an avatar summoned by enemies. Their weakness is their immobility, they cannot be easily moved once placed and finding the correct range and angle requires time and patience. With repeated use, it is almost certain that some or all of the pieces of the trebuchet will degrade and need to be replaced.

Notes[]

The Ballista is currently one of three siege weapons in the game (the other two being the Ballista and the Battering Ram). In order to start building it, players are required to place down a Icon trebuchet foundation a2c2 Siege Foundation, and then place a Icon trebuchet base Siege Weapon Base on top of it. From there, you can then interact with the crafting station, and feed it the required materials to start building the Icon ballista Ballista. Once built, you can do the following:

  • Store the required materials to build the projectiles.
  • Select the projectile to use.
  • Use your character to push the sides of the siege weapon, to point it to another direction.
  • Interact with the front of it to access the inventory.
  • Interact with the back of it to enter into shooting position.
    • Hold right click to slowly bolt back the mechanism (throw power)
    • Left click to shoot the currently loaded projectile
