    Helloo i have a question
    Is it worth to buy the ablative plates when u have the highest level ribs and ravens?
    And another question about the cannon iron sights
    For a small player is it worth buying this or invest in the best cannons the game has to offer right now?
    Thanks in advance

    Ahoy sjahnice!

    Are you aware of Relative and Absolute values that apply to every extension?

    Ablative Plating can be mixed with anything and will always provide you with the same damage prevention % while ribs will decrease the % if you mix it with anything else.

    So yeah, I would recommend purchasing Ablative Plating.

    Cannon Ironsights? Hmm on higher level (when you are close to max) yeah why not, but in lower state personally I would pass on them.

    Thanx for the fast reply
    I kinda know what the words mean but i have a problem implementing it in my ship. To be honest dutch is my main language so i sometimes get stuck when people use English
    So in same line as my first question
    What would’ve been a good combination to use the ablative plates with? I have the highest level ribs and highest level raven on some of my ships

    What would be best? Well do you care about the amount of Hitpoints on you ship?

    Yes - stick to Ablative Plating only
    No - Mix Chains of speed (faster reload time) with Ablative Plating (damage prevention)

    If you are trying to find out what would be best for events mix a bit of your Ravens with Ablative Plating's that set provide your ship with a bit of Dodge Chance (from ravens) and full damage prevention bonus from Ablative Plating's (but reduced HP bonus).

    Ribs are okay as long as you do not mix anything with them (then you have max dmg. prevention bonus applied to your ship).

    Sorry to bring this post back to the living, but what are the advantages of having multiple ablative plates if that is the only type of extension you have on your ship? Thanks!

    Ahoy smilebandit!

    Ablative planting provide you with certain % to HP and % to your damage prevention.

    The more Ablative Platings the more damage prevention you've got.

    1 Ablative Plating = 100% more HP +1% damage prevention (these values differ for different levels)
    2 Ablative Platings = 100% more HP +2% damage prevention

    Since there are no further questions from the OP I will close this thread.

    @smilebandit if you have any further questions please create a thread of your own.

    Happy Sailing!
