Can the new destroyers access the pirate epic arc acceleration gates?

The acceleration gates throughout the two pirate epic arcs, Angel Sound and Smash & Grab, generally admit only frigate and destroyer ships (tech 1 and tech 2). I’ve not run either of the arcs since the retribution patch and do not know whether the new destroyers are able to access those missions.

Has anyone tried this yet? If so, were you able to access the sites in one of the new destroyers?

I guess I am almost a 'vet' by now. Hopefully not too bitter and managing to help more than I hinder. I build and sell many things, including large collections of bookmarks.

I have no idea what a T3 destroyer is.

If I had to guess, it would be a destroyer with medium guns. Which sounds kind of cool except I think they wouldn't be nearly as awesome as the T3 BCs are.

Here's a hint, they are just new destroyers. Last I checked they only take destroyer level 1.

I haven't tried it, but why the doubt? They are just T1 destroyers.
Though I can easily imagine CCP forgetting to add them on the list of allowed ships, if it's how it works ofc.

Yes. Apart from using a different weapon system, they're still T1, just like old destroyers.

Absolutely. I am assuming that ... but asking to try see if anyone can actually confirm rather than suppose.

Well I suppose you can always try. Someone has to be the first to try it and report it as being broken or still functional. I suppose that first person could be you.

Besides that, don't you get a list of ships you might use?

Ship restrictions: click - list of ships and that same list telling you "You may use your Corax/Dragoon"

You're the resident pirate epic arc expert, so - go ahead and let us know! Blink

It wasn't an assumption. I've done a considerable amount of tier 1 content on my alt's Dragoon and I've had no problems whatsoever - if a destroyer can enter it, the new destroyers can do so.

Ok, can you stop having sigs that say "Check my bio for details"? I'd prefer if the whole of new eden didn't become Jitarized.
