Third Rates are the ideal lineships for naval captains who do not want to sacrifice all of their maneuverability. For a lineship, the 'Wenden' has an excellent mix of maneuverability, firepower and defense.

The 'Wenden' is worth an investment for Naval Officers who are already experienced in lineships, which want the most firepower available at reasonable prices.

Additional information

The 'Wenden' Third Rate is a Colossal Ship of the Line, featuring 84 cannons, in total.

Considering this ship has 8 Swivels, 2 Fore guns and 2 Aft guns; this leaves 72 (84-12) cannons on the broadsides. Meaning this ship has 36 cannons on each broadside.

The 'Wenden' Third Rate is able to deal 1476 damage with one broadside, in basic stats and using Round Shots, at 0 yards.

With the guns similar to a Second Rate, the 'Wenden' is a rightly feared adversary.

It's guns are a major improvement over almost every ship under Second Rate status. The 32lbers on the gundeck are excellent at long range pounding, and at shorter ranges are downright devastating. It is currently the only non-Juggernaut Ship that carries 32lbers.

The 18lbers on the upperdeck are a very reliable mixture combined with the excellent reload and Damage-Per-Second (DPS) potential of the 9lbers round out the fearsome armament of the 'Wenden'.

In terms of maneuverability, the 'Wenden' is a sluggish Third Rate. Even so, that some Second Rates accelerate faster.
