 General Description

The 3rd rate is a 3rd rate ship of the line(if you didnt figure that out through the name), the third rate in the game is based on the Bellona and apart from paint job she looks and performs the same. The 3rd rate has 2 gun decks and can also mount cannons on her weather deck


the third rate can mount 24pd cannons on her lower gun deck, 18pd cannons on her top gun deck and 9pd cannons or 32pd carronade on her weather deck. For her bow chasers she can either mount 9pd cannons or 68pd carronades and for her stern chasers she can only mount 68pd carronades

Deck Cannon Count Cannon Size Carronade Size
Bottom Gun Deck 28 24pd N/A
Middle Gun Deck 28 18pd N/A
Weather Deck 18 9pd 32pd
Bow Chasers 2 9pd 68pd
Stern Chasers 2 N/A 68pd


The 3rd rate is not a fast ship, the pavel is faster however she is more maneuverable than a pavel and she does not require as much crew. Compared to a Constitution however she is slower, and not as maneuverable however she has a lot more guns.


Here is the Sailing Profile for the 3rd Rate; she is predictably a difficult ship to sail. While she displays the same preference for a broad reach as the other square-rigged vessels, she also displays notably weaker speeds when running before the wind than might be expected. Furthermore, her loss of speed when putting the helm towards the wind is rapid and can often be disastrous in engagements. On a positive note, she performs decently well relatively on a beam reach. In short, do not expect to perform any advanced maneuvers in the 3rd Rate as her low speed, bad turning rate and poor sailing profile combine to make a very challenging command for any Captain.

How to get Crafting recipe

You can get the crafting recipe of the 3rd rate by random drop from crafting Trincomalees or crafting Constitutions, you can also get it as a random drop from breaking up 3rd rates, however this is not recommended as a 3rd rate is an expensive ship to produce.
