Ramming Speed is a sailing skill which hurls a pirate's ship forward at great speed; any vessel in its path suffers wood-splintering hull damage! This skill is unlocked at SailingLevel 12. When the captain calls it out, the vessel lurches ahead at maximum speed. In SvS, this will knock down a target ship's captain and prevent him or her from attacking for a short while. Sometimes, on rare occasions, when an Enemy Ship Rams directly into a gunner, or near them, that gunner will be knocked out and will not be able to leave their cannon, nor shoot from it. A member of the ship's crew must heal them, or they will be sent to jail.
Note - The amount of damage done depends on the size and class of ship - not on the skill rank. See Damage Table Below.
To use this skill, press '6' or click on the Ramming Speed icon from the bottom of your screen while you are sailing.
