A battering ram can break down walls, homes, or just scare the hell out of your neighbours with your military might.
After building a battering ram, it takes 24 hours for bone glue to dry before use.
Then an additional 8 hours for repairs.(it will probably take more than one glue to fix.)
How to useEdit
To use the battering ram, right-click it and select "Move". Your cursor will change to the icon you get when you select the "Lift" option. You can now push the ram to where you click, so you can take it to the wall or building you wish to demolish. Simply moving it close to the target isn't enough; you have to click on the target with the weird cursor. Next, release your grip on the ram, right-click it again, and now you should also have the "Use" option available.
A battering ram can only be pushed for a small distance before breaking down, so make sure to build it close to the wall you wish to attack. If your strength is too low and you don't have people to help you, Boar Tusk Snuff can make for a nice boost.
The damage you deal while destroying is the square root of your strength with an additional bonus for wielding certain tools, so 16str = 4 damage, 36 str = 6 damage, 144str = 12 damage etc. A ram adds a static 20 damage and allows up to 4 people to combine their damage.
Pickaxe does not help while using a battering ram, according to loftar.
Say we have 4 people attacking a palisade, one has 64 strength, the others have 124 strength. The damage you deal to the wall is calculate as follows:
