Shipwright-Buddy.pngShipwright says... A steam engine gives the Phoenix an advantage over the Badger.


The Phoenix is an improved version of the Otter and Badger, possessing both a steam engine and iron reinforced hull while keeping the same other performance statistics as its sister ships. The Phoenix's two front facing mortars are very deadly in the hands of skilled artillery-men, so one can most commonly see the Phoenix hanging back in combat as it mortars the opposing ships. Be mindful although, if an enemy gets close to the ship the slow turn rate of the Phoenix will allow your enemy to get a few good broadsides on you. Which is where the hull strength comes in. With an impressive broadside (4x size 7 cannons per side) it can tank hits as well as dish them out.

Trivia

The Phoenix is one of the most "meta" combat ships of the game, due to its extremely well-rounded statistics and lack of major weaknesses. As such, it is extremely common to see being used by Navies and Pirate crews alike. It is most commonly paired with a Tyrant in combat.

Players commonly refer to the Phoenix as a "Nix" to shorten the name down.

A uncommon usage is to replace the two front mortars and instead use two chasers although players prefer the mortars for combat.
