Hey guys, you'll have to excuse me if this has already been mentioned, but isn't the orthrus a bit strong? I can pull 700+ dps with 30k+ ehp out of it with just my crappy skills. Is there some weakness i've overlooked or are there nerfs incoming. The reason I ask is that i'd like to invest in said ship, but i'm a bit weary of an over-nerf coming in the future.

So it does a bit more damage than a HAC with a bit less tank than a HAC?
Nah. Seems about the right spot for a pirate cruiser.

Yes.

If it is caught it dies.

My Stratios has about the same DPS with 65k ehp, sounds about right to me then.

No nerf will be incoming. Orthrus is a glass cannon. It fights like the cynnabal only at slightly longer range. if its caught and scrammed, it dies just as fast as a caracal.

Please buy more Orthruses (Orthri?) and Garmurs. This message brought to you by your local Mordus Legion security patrol.

CCP mostly sucks at their job, but Veritas is a pretty cool dude.
