Baghlah vs Junk (vs War Brig) Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Just looking for some opinions on this question;

Moving up from a sloop for pillying, which one would be the best option, Baghlah or Junk (or War Brig), and why?

Thanks, looking forward to some good responses :P

Depends on the bnaver I think. Junks are great if you play defensive. I love that it needs to hit a few times only, but you have to be careful getting hit.

I like to use it because I dont get hit most of the time, and I can max them pretty fast. I also think that it takes way less people to start the pillage. I can go with 7, so my crew is enough. I get more on the way. You also need only 1 gunner, meaning more sails.

Now WB take way more damage without been that serious, and I know some of my crew bnavers dont mind exchanging some hits. This ship allows way more mistakes, just make sure you shoot and hopefully you will exchange shots. With a JUNK you make this mistake....well you will have a hard time.

I have not done Baghlah, that much soo I cant say anything about it.

I am using my WB for SMH, since I will take a JUNK before a WB for pillages.

I go JUNK

Junks and Baghlahs are a similar staffing level (max 18, need around 8 minimum to be pillage-serviceable); WBs are the next step up needing around 12-15 to start working properly.

A baghlah fires double shot so you need two gunners, but you won't be out-shot by any of the ships you'll meet, whereas the Junk can get by with one but against baghs, WBs and Xebecs you are outgunned. The Junk is a bit stronger but the max ratio for the battles you will have is worse. (For example bagh v WB is 4:5; junk v WB is 5:7.5.)

Some people say that the Junk is better for the 'intangibles' (repair rate, move generation etc). I have not used a junk enough to judge that (just done a few battles on a hearty's pillage). If you can get the gunners the bagh wins on the objective statistics.

Someone ought to turn those into 'tangibles'. IE, get a baghlah and a junk in the same space, max each out, and time how long it takes four swabbies to fully repair the things. Then how long those same four swabbies can clear out the bilge.
