Repeating Ballista

Post by RiverRaider 1097 » Sun May 17, 2015 4:41 pm

Could be an upgrade to the Ballista, or new unit with the same stats as the Ballista but shoots three bolt shots not with the splintering effect but high in piercing armour

I'd see a repeating crossbow something more fit for an upgrade of the crossbowman

Actually it was stationary armament like the Ballista, which shot six to eight bolts

ballista upgrade IMPLEMENTED

Post by TheBluePhoenix » Tue Sep 06, 2016 5:48 am

i checked but found no topic solely dedicated to a ballista upgrade. So i propose this-

Cost 6
Changes made-
The range increases by 2 (5+2 =7)
This conviniently places it between catapult ship and catapult upgrade and at par with the catapult
Also, the speed increases to 2
The damage/attack power increases by 5

If this is op, then the cost of ballista may also be increased to 5 after upgrading

I don't think the cost should change, but otherwise I like it.

I already proposed a speed increase to 2. Please read carefully....
After upgrade i think it should be called heavy ballista but the problem is that it has gotten lighter....

I think its speed+1,range+1,attack +0 or -1 is enough because it just need 4 turns to build.
I think it can be done in blacksmith.Maybe name can be "Light billista".

Naah.. the range should be atleast increased to 7, speed to 2 and maybe a small increase in attack (+2)
Will be sufficient. Cost of the tech should be 6-8 turns

Not really- the hp remains the same. If you see the heavy catapult upgrade, then it doubles the health, +1 range and about +10-15 power . Comparing, it doesnot seem op for an 7(or 8 ) turn tech

For an upgrade yes.

For other it can be new design but must blend into the existing units look, angle style and quality.

i want to refresh this because i think ballistas needs some push, because i never see them in battle, an upgraded one might help it.

Something that would make these strategically viable:

If catapults are changed so they cannot enter wagons, I think ballista should still be allowed to be transported via wagon. This is historically still accurate, and ballistae were normally not that large. It would also make them much better shock weapons for fast and powerful attacks, while catapults/trebuchets would be mostly limited to defense.
