Frigate adalah kapal defensive yang cocok untuk melindungi teman, mempertahankan wilayah, dan mengendalikan area perang. Brigantine adalah kapal dengan kemampuan serang jarak pendek yang cocok untuk menyerang musuh dan mencapai wilayah tujuan. Sementara itu, Scoop-of-War adalah kapal dengan kemampuan serang jarak jauh yang dirancang untuk membantu teman dan mengganggu musuh. Selama permainan, pemain akan dapat membuka senjata dan pilihan kapal baru yang dapat dimutakhirkan.
