Pillars of Eternity 2 Best Ships - All Ships Ranked Worst To Best

PoE Ship
Ships Ahoy!

To the seas we go!

Have you ever dreamed of sailing the seven seas? Does the idea of commanding your own crew and battling other ships appeal to you? Well, if you answered yes to both of these questions then Pillars of Eternity 2 is the game for you!

There are a total of seven ships to choose from over the course of the game, each with their own benefits. However, there are some that shine more than the others.

7.  Submarine

The biggest thing that sets the Submarine apart from the other ships on this list is the fact that you can’t simply buy it. Sucks, right? I mean look at it! It’s such an interesting looking ship. If you do manage to get it, it has a hull health of 80 which will help you given the quest you end up using it for.

 However, since you only use it at the tail end of the game, it’s at the low end of the list. You barely get a chance to enjoy it.

How to get Submarine: This is a special, upgraded ship that you get after finishing the Final Maneuver quest. However, the only way you can get it is if you have sided with the Rauatai during the Coming Storm. If you don’t side with them then you don’t get this ship. *cue sad violin music*

 6. Dyrwoodan Sloop

 This ship should have a special place in your heart because it’s the first ship you start with in the game! It’s damaged after you’re attacked (soon after waking up from a long coma I might add), but once it gets it’s repairs it’s good as new! 

I won’t lie to you. It is the weakest ship in the list (though it's fast). However, you can’t go wrong with free and if you’d rather save your money for armor, weapons, etc. then this ship is for you!

How to get Dyrwoodan Sloop: This ship is the easiest and cheapest to get. It’s your default ship! All you must do is start the game.

5. Fonferrus

Let’s just get this out of the way, first. This ship is a ghost ship. It looks like the Galleon ship and, sadly, is unable to be really upgraded. The only thing you can upgrade is the flag and guns. Still, the fact you can manage to get this ship and be sailing around in it is impressive.

For that reason alone, I’d give it a chance! If you could customize it more than this would certainly be higher on the list.

How to get Fonferrus: You get this special ship during the Príncipi sen Patrena questline.

4. Voyager

Ah the Voyager, which sadly doesn’t have a thing to do with Star Trek, but it’s a cool name if you think about it. A Huana inspired ship, the Voyager has a sail health of 25 and hull health of between 40 and 60. It comes with a total of five crew members for you to add as well as three canons.

This is a great upgrade from the default, but still cheap enough so your wallet doesn’t start weeping.

How to get Voyager: You can buy the Voyager in Neketaka at the Shipyard in Queen’s Berth. The Voyager is 20,000 cp.

3. Dhow

The Dhow is a popular ship with the Principi, that while still on the modest side, is just as formidable as larger, more powerful ships. Dhow requires a total of seven crew members to work. Its sail health is 40 with hull health being 60. One of the greatest parts is that it has three canons on one side and three canons on the other. This way both sides of your ship can remain at the same strength. Or, on the flip side, get the same amount of damage. Hope you know how to swim!

How to get Dhow: You can buy the Dhow in Neketaka at the Shipyard in Queen’s Berth. The Dhow is 35,000 cp.

2. Galleon

Here we have the Galleon ship. It is the preferred ship of the Vailian Republic, offering a lot of protection due to its hull. While it may not be as fast as some other ships on this list, it makes up for it in how many hits it can take. To work this ship, you need a crew of eight. Its sail health is at 40 with its hull health all the way at 100.

How to get Galleon: You can buy the Galleon in Neketaka at the Shipyard in Queen’s Berth. The Galleon is a total of 100,000 cp.

1. Junk

Don’t let the name of the Junk fool you. The one thing it is not is a piece of junk. Despite the enormous size of the vessel, it can serve you well in the speed department when you are trying to escape from an enemy. As this is a large ship, it needs a total of 9 crewmembers to fully run. Its full sail health is 60 while its hull health is 70.

 The only drawback of this ship is how expensive it is.

 How to get Junk: You can buy the Junk in Neketaka at the Shipyard in Queen’s Berth. The Junk is 120,000 cp.

 And there you have it, party people! Here are all the available ships in Pillars of Eternity 2 and the ways you can buy them. As always, go with whatever appeals to you the most and enjoy sailing the seven-- err however many seas they have in this sequel.
