Strategy Edit

They deal a large amount of hack damage and have a large amount of crush armor, making them highly effective against Siege Ships. They are also effective against Myth Units, making them crucial against enemies with naval myth units. Since there are no naval heroes (except for Poseidon's The Argo) they are the only anti-myth unit warship available.

Atlantean Fireships are arguably inferior to other "ramming ships" as they have lower speed and HP and are the only ones with a minimum range of attack which forces them to repeatedly back away from any melee attackers. They are especially vulnerable to Arrow Ships due to their low pierce armor. Any defenses on the shore should be avoided as well, though Fireships can be effective at harassing land units close to the shore, or Docks.

History Edit

The success of the Fire Siphon on the battlefield was noted with great interest by the admirals of the Atlantean navy. It was not long before similar devices began appearing on warships. Early mishaps were common; the first few vessels outfitted with the new weapons caught fire before leaving port. But in their first battle against the Egyptians, the Atlantean fireships returned without a scratch, leaving dozens of burning galleys drifting in the shallow waters at the mouth of the Nile.
