The Warlock is a powerful Battleship with a unique design and many Medium Turrets.

Description

The Warlock is a long ship, with Lasers and Railgun Turrets grouped together along the sides of the ship's body. This ship is well known for the ring surrounding its engines, which can be seen near the back of this latest remodel.

The Warlock can be used as a support siege ship since it has an array of balanced Turrets and great health.

Interior

The interior of the Warlock is the exact same as the interior of the Witch. There is a small teleporter pad that leads to a hallway stretching nearly the entire length of the ship. The hallway has three wider openings with a set of three windows on each side of the openings. The middle opening contains one large pilot's seat and a faction-colored neon screen.

Advantages

  • Pretty good firepower with its 9 Medium Turrets and 1 Heavy Turret.
  • Decent range allows it to dish out full damage while staying behind a tank during PVP and sieges.
  • Decent health for a Battleship.
  • Great fleet support due to its versatility.
  • Performs surprisingly well as a Pirate ship due to the balanced damage the Railguns and Lasers can deal.
  • Great maneuverability.

Disadvantages

  • Vulnerable backside and only 1 turret on the bottom.
  • Lacks Small Turrets, lowering its effectiveness against small Ships.
  • Jack of all trades; master of none. Can't deal very well with being outgunned.
  • Rather mediocre damage output, it is on par with the Prowler.
  • Second most expensive battleship on the build menu.

Strategy

  • Pick your fights. You won't last very long in direct combat with bigger ships.
  • Attack from below to ensure that all your Turrets hit.
  • Try to move slowly behind Dreadnoughts during a siege, let them tank, while you use your firepower.
  • Another strategy is to warp over the Starbase then rotate yourself upside down. This will allow all your Turrets to hit on a large target surface and may prevent low Orbital Turrets from having a line of sight.
  • When attacking larger and slower ships , always stay underneath them or in a blind-spot using the Warlock's speed.
