[Feature] Extinguishable fires for Castle Guard (role specific)
Castle Guards should be able to extinguish fires on the siege weapon platforms as well as the wooden keep/castle walls. The Castle Guards could throw buckets of water or team together to use a water barrage. The Castle Guards would receive valor similar to the rate of building a siege weapon.

I would like to add this would incentivize the castle guard squad to stay at the castle and still earn valor for defending and keeping things not destroyed

1) This increases the value of actually playing castle defense (which is a good thing).
2) Use one of the titles (either at Valor 1, or every odd valor level) to add a bonus to this action: i.e., % extinguish

What about having Water Buckets around the wooden structures that any Defending Player could click on, carry over to the fire and toss on said fire.
So it's not an insta-cast solution to putting out the fire but it's also do-able by any Defender.
I play very often as guard castle and I found that it has no option to stop the fire on the buildings.
This is something quite frustrating because no couterplay is possible.
Example: a mage lightnings the ballista and the tower dies over time.
I think it would be an idea to implement a way to counter it like a water bucket or other idea if you have.

I think setting something on fire right now is too strong, so castles should have a water bucket feature that puts out fires and maybe protects against them for a short time.

That would be rad—a well with buckets around it that can be picked up and filled with water.
We could carry it to wherever there is a fire and douse it with the filled bucket. Of course, we should be able to put the bucket down whenever something else more important demands our attention, but it should be left there for the player (or someone else) to pick bucket the bucket back up.
Bonus points if we can dump the water on an ally to extinguish their flames and on an enemy to increase how much lightning damage they take.
If a wizard uses a lightning strike on a structure, it shouldn't be an end all be all. You should be able to put that out. Dispel already puts out a lot of effects so it would fit in with the spell description perfectly.

This ABSOLUTELY needs to be a thing. There NEEDS to be a way to combat fires.
Dispel should be able to put out fires on buildings, IF the fire was caused by magic. This should probably not apply to siege engines for attackers, since that would make them much harder to stop. This both helps push people towards using dispel (which in my experience isn't used as often as some other clerical spells).
This would probably need some balancing to still allow attackers a reasonable way to break buildings- one possibility might be increasing the demolition of crossbows by a little bit? I don't have an answer for that.

I suggest a "water cannon" spell for the wizard.
Short-Med Range, No Damage, High Push Back CC, Puts out structural fires.
If not.... buckets? or maybe a perk? that allow's us to put them out.
