Welcome to the Advanced Maritime Academy. Here you will be learning many new things while still using what you have learned thus far on a daily basis. The first course you'll be taking is one on Hostile Waters from Instructor Maximilian. You should be able to find him waiting for you somewhere nearby the Port.
You can choose two weapons for a land battle and use items that have been pre-registered. You can use your main weapon by equipping it, but an additional weapon and items must be registered as a Land Battle Item in the Equipment Screen.
Techs for Land Battle:
Each of the three occupations has its own favoured tech that, when used, can help mount a formidable attack. Each weapon has a compatible distance, so bear that in mind during conflict. Next thing to do is attack the Bandits in Naples!
Successful subjugation of Naples' remaining warriors:
The surviving Soldiers of Naples have been defeated. Go and see Instructor Maximilian in front of the gate to the suburbs of Naples.
Tactics incorporating items:
You have completed a lecture about land battles. Tactical use of items helps accumulate stronger power and greater strength. From now on you will probably need to study about the effects of each item.
Instructor Maximilian has taught you what a land battle entails. Much like a sea battle, there are many factors involved in land battles, so from now on you will need to devote some study to the matter.
In this next course you will learn about the different types of cannons and their various effects in battle. Cannons are simple weapons that fire cannon balls using gunpowder but with a little creativity they can be modified to inflict a variety of different effects on your opponents.\nInstructor Maximillian will teach you all you need to know. He's waiting for you outside of the Academy.
You have taken a lecture in five types of cannonball, excluding normal shot, from Instructor Maximilian. Each cannonball has its own purpose and effect. After taking a break, take the next lecture.
Flaming shot exercise begins:
Excluding normal shot, there are five types of cannonball that have their own effect, and a special cannon is required for each of them. Alternate cannons according to the type of cannonball used. Training will commence soon with a ship equipped with incendiary shots. Head for the waters north of Benghazi.
Flaming shot exercise completed:
You have completed training on a ship equipped with incendiary shots. Next up is training using smoke shells.
Smoke screen exercise completed:
You have completed training on a ship equipped with smoke shells.
You have completed a lecture on five types of cannonball, excluding normal shot. Each Cannonball has a different effect to the others. Choose the right cannonball to match your tactics.
You already learned a bit about this in the Intermediate Maritime Academy, but there's still more to learn about Melee battle skills. Instructor Maximillian is waiting for you outside the Academy. Go speak to him when you're ready.
You have taken a lecture about skills in Melee battle. The Knights of Rhodes are staying in Athens right now. One of them, La Valette, is a distinguished practitioner in the art of Melee battle. Go to Athens and learn from La Valette.
During Melee battle, you can sometimes plunder your enemy's inventory. The Plunder Skill makes this easy. There are many specialist items for use in Melee battle. At the end of the lecture, go and practice on the training ship off the coast of Athens using the Tactics Skill.
Exercises and lectures completed:
You defeated the training ship for Melee battle off the coast of Athens. That ties up this lecture.
You have learned about skills in Melee battle, the plunder skill, and items used in Melee battle. Make a report for the Instructor of the Maritime Course in Pisa and at the same time acquire the items needed for Melee battle.
Do you know about Epic Sea Feuds? Soldiers fight against pirates and bandits on a daily basis, but Epic Sea Feuds are on a different level entirely. Instructor Maximillian will give you the details. He'll be waiting for you outside of the Academy.
Epic Sea Feuds experienced by sailors in each country help to increase the influential level of a city. While this may be the main purpose, another advantage of such battles is that it provides an opportunity to try out military strength. Go to the maritime guild in Naples and continue the lecture.
Trail leading to the outbreak of Epic Sea Feuds:
Attacking Sailors cast a vote to decide which city to target. But then again, it seems that the request to make a contract and join a Epic Sea Feud is mandatory.
Conditions for fighting:
After contracting by request, there are some restrictions in a Epic Sea Feud. In such a battle there is a ship classification. First is the battle of the small ships, next come the mid-size ships, and then there are the large ships. Battles involving mixed ship classifications are forbidden, making it impossible to group together mixed fleet defence and/or attack situations.
Calculating Merits of War:
The fruits of battle can be attained by joining and winning the battle. The person who gains the most merits of war earns the right to enter their own name on the Maritime Guild's information list for exceptional performances in Epic Sea Feuds
You have completed a lecture on Epic Sea Feuds. The main purpose of a Epic Sea Feud is to increase one's own influence levels by using ports as targets. Some restrictions will be met when joining a battle. Try to increase sea battle skills in the future.
It's time for you to take the Maritime Academy graduation exam. Don't get comfortable, this exam is no child's play! Instructor Maximilian is waiting for you outside of the Academy. He will inform you of the exam's contents.
