When building your Drowning ship in Sea of Conquest, you have several options when it comes to heroes and ship parts so I wanted to write this guide here to give you a clear ideal what is important to do.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.
Important! If you want to check how well the heroes in general perform in the current meta of Sea of Conquest, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. Also really important is that you check out my overview where I have builds for all kinds of ships and damages that will help you build your formation: Check out all ship and hero formations in Sea of Conquest here.
Best Ship for your Drowning Ship in Sea of Conquest
These are the ships that work best for building this team:
Best Heroes for your Drowning Ship
Barnacle is your ideal captain for your drowing ship, dealing good drowing damage and applying and synergizing well with the damage over time of Taking-on Water, the damage over time effect of heroes that use Drowing damage. – Eileen also deals Drowning damage to multiple targets, apply Taking-on Water and synergizes really well with Barnacle when put in the First Mate position of this ship setup. – Adeline is a important hero in the gunner position simply as she is incredibly strong for Drowning and Taking on Water effect as the seasonal legendary hero she is she brings the Drowning archetype into the meta a huge more.
This is the perfect Drowing damage hero team setup if you want to run a ship with that type of damage in Sea of COnquest for me. Dealing a lot of damage and affecting multiple targets is a lot of fun and also effective.
Possible alternative heroes:
Mad Dog in the Gunner position makes my good team here if you don’t have Adeline. He works well with the other heroes and this ship will ramp up a lot of damage to multiple targets here and synergize well with their passive effects. – To see all alternative heroes you can possibly swap into this ship setup, please support us on Patreon.

These heroes make sense to swap in if you’re building a Drowining team. Make sure to run at least 2 drowing heroes or maybe consider using another type of damage dealing ship that will work better as there is not too many heroes that make a Drowning team well here.
Best Ship Parts
The Ship Parts need to fit the goal you want to achieve with your ship and make also an important part. Don’t just use the highest rarity or leveld ship parts here, use the ones that make the right set and ideally have the correct stats on them.
Best Ship Part Set(s)
Best Ship Part Stats
Stats are contributed randomly on your ship parts, so this gives you sometimes the annoying quest of getting a couple items that fit. As soon as you have your set bonus as above ready, it’s time to refine it with ship parts of the right set that has ideally the main stat and 2 sub-stats fitting well. Here is the effects you’re looking for:

I hope this guide here helps you build your ships in your formation well as this is so important for your progress long-term. Don’t just randomly throw together heroes and ships of the highest rarity, build your ships for specific causes! Also, I will update this guide with new heroes released in the future so this will be your go-to guide to see what heroes and items to work on.
