All Ship and Hero Formations in Sea of Conquest (Flagship, Artillery, Blaze, Cutthroat, Strategic & Drowning)

Building your formation in Sea of Conquest is crucial for success and a long-term effort. I know a lot of players simply put together the heroes that are strong individually and believe that will work out, but the way your heroes in Sea of Conquest synergize with each other and also with their ship and the ship items you have there make success.

General Formation Strategy in Sea of Conquest

A very vanilla description of your formation strategy is that your Flagship should be as defensive and durable as possible and take all the enemy attention and the other ships should be specialized ship in damage and deal as much damage as possible.

This then comes down to what you’re fighting against – you would use damage types like artillery damage against everything that has multiple targets or cutthroat damage against single targets like sea monsters. Again, very vanilla description of the damage types and ship roles in your formation in Sea of Conquest.

The key takeaway is that you need to build a ship for a certain type of damage, including the heroes, ship, ship items and stats on the ship items.

Below you will find the different damage types and ships with their best hero setup. I also have linked the full guides for each ship type with alternative heroes to use, the ideal ship setup and more info that you will find useful.

Flagship Hero & Ship Build

Your flagship should always be as durable as possible as it’s taking the most hits and you want it that way. This means you can build your other ships in your formation for damage directly and they can deal the damage and scale well while your flagship takes the hits.

This is right now the best setup for your Flagship ship in Sea of Conquest. But if you don’t have the heroes or you want to know more about the optimal ship item sets and stats on them, I have a full guide on building this ship here:

Artillery Hero & Ship Build

Your artillery ship in your formation deals damage to multiple enemies and is in many battles the one when attacking anything that has formations. Not too great against single targets like monsters.

Cutthroat Hero & Ship Build

Your cutthroat ship is a blasting single-target damage ship that you use against either sturdy setups where you have to break through a strong flagship or against single targets like sea monsters. It’s not perfect against formations with many ships unless there is a durable flagship to get through.

Drowning Hero & Ship Build

Drowning damage is a specific type of damage that has a damage-over-time part which is good as it ignore armor but also takes more time to really unfold.

This is right now the best setup for your Drowning ship in Sea of Conquest. But if you don’t have the heroes or you want to know more about the optimal ship item sets and stats on them, I have a full guide on building this ship here:

Blaze Hero & Ship Build

Your blaze ship solely rely on damage over time so it’s for longer battles where the damage can sum up over the duration and also against targets with high armor that is not affecting burning damage. Sea Monsters or also very sturdy targets with a lot of armor are ideal for this.

This is right now the best setup for your Blaze ship in Sea of Conquest. But if you don’t have the heroes or you want to know more about the optimal ship item sets and stats on them, I have a full guide on building this ship here:

Strategic Hero & Ship Build

Strategic damage is not as burstful as cutthroat damage or affecting as many targets as artillery damage but a solid damage source between them. Consider it as ‘normal’ damage.

This is right now the best setup for your Strategic ship in Sea of Conquest. But if you don’t have the heroes or you want to know more about the optimal ship item sets and stats on them, I have a full guide on building this ship here:

Support Hero & Ship Build

In later stages (and I mean if you go to Season 3 and beyond), the meta shifts so you will start to have a support ship with heroes that will provide benefits for all ships in your fleet

Conclusion

These are the different ship types that you will build in Sea of Conquest right now as it makes no sense to simply put your strongest heroes together since there are so many different archetypes of damage they deal.

  1. Cordelia does healing depending on the amount of damage her ship has, putting her with Ahab and the emo guy (i forgot his name), means she won’t heal as much as if she were in another ship with stronger heroes.
