Catapults in ArcheAge

KumaponKumapon Posts: 764Member Uncommon

XL Games has recently introduced Catapults to the game.

What I find interesting is you can put all sorts of things into the catapult.

You can put Hp potions on them and fire them into the battle field, thus healing your troops!

Or you can put oil (this slows down the enemy troops), Rocks, Logs or Flaming boulders (when they land they give off a flame dot on the ground)

Launching a Flameing Rock!

    Catapults

    "Hey I ignored all the fun content and played this game like a hamster because it was possible just spending long enough time in the wheel. Why are games so boring X-clones these days and can't be more like X? Im going back to grind repeatable tasks in X and hone my skills with some dice roles, waiting 14 months for the next paid content patch."

    would be nice if you can launch troops using the catapults and then use gliders to glide over the walls...

    I don't really understand the fascination with catapults.

    Unless a game has a fantastic physics system, they'll look really stupid, always.

    Maybe not perfect graphics, but at least to me it looks pretty decent.
