Greetings!
Jarette Domongatt here bringing you another guide for the Node War Series. 


Foreword
Cannons in Node War & Siege War is vital however there is a huge lack of information how to get good on doing it.
Top guild in SEA Server doesnt share guides outside of their group therefore, other guilds new & old doesnt know much about cannons.
This guide will be in simplified form for easier to understand and follow.

A year ago, we've shared this guide to our allied guilds  in order to boost our potential during sieges.
And now, almost everyone is using it and that is good.

Learning the basics of Cannoneer

The best class for cannoneer are those who can 1v1 well or if you're good at 1v1 PvP then any class will do.
Your objective is to hide your spot from unwanted enemy scouts finding you and target their base.
It is also advisable that you move from 1 spot to another to avoid detection and being camped.

For beginners who doesnt have any experiences in Cannons.
Ask your guild master to make you an officer and put some allowances so you can purchase the [Guild] Practice Cannon & Cannon Balls.

Using the Cannon is self explanatory, it is very similar in using the Cannon of Guild Ships, Sailboat & Frigate.
By now Im 100% you've already experienced in using these cannons during Vell Hunt.
Therefore, I will not explain further how to use Cannons.

**IMPORTANT**
When you first summon the Cannon, it starts at 0 angle. Everytime you tap S, the angle goes up by 1 & maximum of 6. To decrease the Angle count, tap W. While holding Shift for aiming.

**IMPORTANT**
There are only 10 power levels. 0 - 100.
So if power is 31, that is within the range of 30-39. So When you fired at 31 but the chart says 30, that is ok.

 

Aiming & Target Prioritization

When you have found your spot, set a target by market it in the map.
Open Map (M) and right click on the supposed target.
A path-guide should be visible now.

The red mark indicates the direction of your target.
The green mark indicates how far you are from your target.

Target Prioritization
Our objective is to disrupt the base and destroy annexes.
But we'll just not focus on any annexes, we have to priorities the following targets (in order):
➤ Flame Tower
➤ Hwacha
➤ Flag
➤ Elephant
➤ Recovery Centers

Upon spotting the target, use the iron cannon ball type (Cannonball)
This type of cannonball has the most effective damage to annexes.
Flame Cannonball however is best for disrupting repairs.

 

A need for scout / spotter
It is highly recommended that, YOU as the cannoneer should go in separate voice room.
Preferably join the Flank team's voice room as for the Flanks will be your main spotter.
Or you can have a separate voice channel with your personal spotter.

Your job as a spotter is to report every hit your cannooner does.
And if possible, ping the spot where the priority target is located.

It is important also to be in the party of your cannooner.

Tip: You can spam ping by hitting ~ (tilde) key.

 

Positioning your Cannon
This is very situational and there are no best spots.
So, its up for the cannooners creativity where he/she should hide to avoid detection from enemy scouts.
Recommended spots are:
➤ On mountain top
➤ Top of a building that is hard to climb on
➤ On a tree! (yes this is possible)
➤ Inside your own base (If enemy is within target distance, just be in your base)
Tip: Try not to stay in one place.

Countering Cannons
It is no secret that to counter cannons is to have counter-scouts that search & destroys cannons.
These scouts can also be part of your flank team.
A good scout is Musa, Maehwa, Ninja & Kuno.

Cannons are tough, it will take longer to destroy. That is why it is best if you have a Horse with Charge Skill (preferably with S.Charge or just bring a Doom Horse).
Also, if you have a Trina Axe (III or IV) is much better.

If you base is on fire due to Flame Cannonballs, use Purified Water to cleanse it.
