The weaponry is an additional upgrade which you can add to your hosts and escorts.
There are 3 types of upgrades for your ships in the weaponry:
Cannons: Adds 0.5% bonus Damage to the ship its added to and increases by 0.5% for each level in this upgrade. Max level 60 (30% Damage).
Platings: Adds 0.25% Plating to the ship its added to and increases by 0.25% for each level in this upgrade. Max level 60 (15% Plating).
Thrusters: Adds 0.5% speed to the ship its added to and increases by 0.5% for each level in this upgrade. Max level 60 (30% Speed).
The amount of weaponry depends on the rarity of the ship its attached to.
- Common ships can use 1 Weapon
- Rare ships can use 2 Weapons
- Epic ships can use 2 Weapons
- Legendary ships can use 3 Weapons
- Immortal ships can use 4 Weapons
- The immortal ship Titan can use 5 Weapons
Currently the thrusters are useless, so i suggest combining cannon upgrades with ships that have high plating and plating upgrades for the ships that have high damage, check ships tab for more information about ship stats. When removing a Weapon it's permanently gone.
Weapons may be upgraded with Prime matter. The costs for each level up can be approximated using the formula:
Cost= 0.5*level^2 +20 Where level is the level that the Weapon is upgrading to, not its current level. For a full list of Prime matter costs, see: Prime Matter.
