View Full Version : Getting certain Elite Upgrades

Do you really need Elite Heavy Shot to take down Legendary ships ? (Heavy shot is Fire shot right). Seems like you'd want to fight The Legendaries at more of a distance. With Mortars & Roundshot.
And does Aquila's wheel, make steering the boat much easier ? If not what wheel does

The wheels are just for looks, so they won't make steering the ship any easier. As for taking down the ships, you don't NEED the elite heavy shot, but it sure does help. In particular against El Impoluto or however you spell it...that one gave me fits, took me 7 or 8 tries to take that stupid thing down. If you haven't fought the ship, it's tough because it constantly tries to ram you and it's SO fast and turns on a dime...so knowing that I was trying to keep my distance from it. That didn't work, so I tried to stay right on top of it and not let it build up speed, and that was how I beat it. And in that situation, boy did the elite heavy shot make a big difference.
