Default What is the use of Battering Rams

So what use are they, you send battering rams, to take out the gate, you win and still the wall has been destroyed??? So what is the point of them?

It is probably done that way since you cannot just rebuild the gatehouse. You have to build the entire wall. My question is what is the value of trebuchets? I have now engaged in two sieges with my trebuchets and they have done zero damge. My supporting troops have taken a severe beating, however that may be own fault by having an improper troop mix. However, the trebuchets really need to do damage before I will consider them a worthwhile unit.

It seems to me that the only worthwhile mechanical unit is the ballista - both offensive and defensive

I know they are siege engines, I was conducting a siege. In neither one of my sieges did I get any report of them damaging the walls. I would suspect that I should get some sort of information when they do actually do something.

Going back to the original question:

Battering rams are used to plunder enemy defences.

I myself prefere moving my capital city since it raises moral and earns gold.
