Bludgeon

From YPPedia

Contents

Bludgeons are used whenever two or more players rumble. Rumbles can occur in sea battles, when one pirate challenges another to a rumble, at brawls in inns or on ships, or during rumble tournaments.

Each bludgeon has a different drop pattern that is used to determine what balls will be sent to an opponent during a rumble. The colors of the drop pattern will be altered by the paints used on the bludgeon. Only certain paint colors are available for bludgeons. The bludgeon palette shows all available color combinations. All drop patterns have advantages and disadvantages, but some are better than others. On subscription oceans, some bludgeons are only usable by subscribers.

All bludgeons decay, but can be stored in a bludgeon trunk to slow their decay. If a player has no bludgeon equipped, or has selected the "No bludgeons" option, they will fight rumbles using bare fists or a hook, based on their injury status.

Among high-level players, the blackjack, hammer, and chain are the most popular choices. At the lower levels, the bare fists, gaff, and rope coils are overwhelmingly popular, probably due to their low cost. Fish are also very common as they are one of the natural byproducts of a sinking blockade. See each bludgeon page below for further descriptions.

Also of note, while there are sixteen total bludgeons, only fourteen may be held in inventory; hooks and bare fists are used only when no other bludgeon is equipped via the booty panel.

Historical notes

  • Bludgeons were first seen with the release of rumble on the Ice Ocean with update 2006-03-02.
  • Bludgeons were originally called gloves until Ice release 2006-03-23.
  • Three test bludgeons were added to the game in July 2010 in order to help test revised drop patterns for the blackjack. These bludgeons were available to purchase from the palace shoppe for 1,000 PoE, lasted one day, and could not be wrapped or placed in a bludgeon trunk[1]. They were also misspelled, 'Bludgen,' but had its spelling revised later. For a short time, they were also unintentionally distributed through chests in Cursed Isles.
