"The Poseidon's all-iron hull makes it extremely tough. Press E to toggle steam engine on and off"-Shipwright Summary
The Poseidon is a level 10 vanity ironclad steamship with no sails, meaning it needs coal to go more than a snail's pace. It has massive health and two special 270 degree rotation gun turrets capable of holding the 42T, a formerly OP gun that is still quite powerful.The Poseidon was used in the Whitecrest and Inyola Conflict during the "Crestfallen" phase of the conflict. It is a Purshovian ship. It needs an Advanced Engine from the premium vendor to craft.
The ship can hold 50 coal just like any steamship
Strategy and Tips
This ship should only be used to skirmish, snipe, or pursue. If you use this to tank, most likely you would be sunk due to its health being nerfed from 24,000. Its awful turning speed similar to the Neptune makes it susceptible to stern/bow locking, especially if one of the guns is disabled. The driver is partially protected from cannon fire.
The Poseidon's slow speed is partially made up for by its health and armor, however, it has been nerfed, making it obsolete to tank other ships, including other ironclads. Like the Neptune, the Poseidon runs solely on coal, lacking sails. If the coal runs out (it shouldn't), the Poseidon will be left as a sitting duck, especially if cannons are disabled. Poseidons should not be used independently, and should have cover from other ships in large skirmishes
The 2 special cannons are capable of covering almost all angles of the Poseidon, eliminating most blind spots in conventional ships. It should be noted that the cannons come off easily, as they are rather large and easy targets for sniping ships. The cannons are covered, so the cannon operators should not worry about being sniped by other ships, however the confined space of the covered cannons make unsuspecting operators sitting ducks for melee rushers.
- The Poseidon is thought to be based off of the USS Keokuk, an ironclad from the American Civil War
- Named after the Greek god of the seas (and appropriately earthquakes and storms).
