Battering Rams

History

battering rams unit type evony

In its simplest form, a Battering Ram is just a large, heavy log carried by several people and propelled with force against an obstacle; the momentum of the Ram would be sufficient to damage the target if the log were massive enough and/or it were moved quickly enough. In castles, defenders attempted to foil Battering Rams by dropping obstacles in front of the Ram, such as a large sack of sawdust, just before it hit a wall, by using grappling hooks to immobilize the log, by setting the Ram on fire, or by sallying to attack the Ram directly.

Most of these figures are accurate, a few are off by a couple of seconds. But overall they are a good indication of what the bonuses are. The formula for the technology bonus is very simple, 10% reduction per level, ((min*60+sec)-10%)/60. The attack bonus was slightly harder to figure out but in the end it seems every 100 points of attack reduce the time by 13%, so ((min*60+sec)-13%)/60.
