Effects[edit | edit source]
- Archers and Arrow Ships ×6 damage against buildings
- Archers ×1.5 damage against ships
- Arrow ships +15% attack
- Ballistae +20% crush damage (+Tale of the Dragon) in
- Cheiroballistae ×11 damage against buildings.
Note: Certain myth units (such as the Satyr), siege ships and ranged Greek Heroes seem to benefit from Burning Pitch. However, this is purely cosmetic, as their attack against building does not increase. Also, clicking on the respective unit's info box does not indicate that the unit in question gains Burning Pitch under the "Upgrades" section.
History[edit | edit source]
While arrows were already deadly in combat, well-equipped armies could coat their arrowheads (or even siege projectiles) with burning pitch made from tar or tree sap in order to cause extra damage and ignite the unfortunate victim, ship or building targeted.
