Would be awesome if the Astero could get a scan probe launcher cpu reduction bonus, maybe rolled into the cloak bonus.

It's a Sisters of Eve ship after all!

resist profile for those ? Same as gallente or amarr. Or completly diffrent ?

I guess those ships are not overpowered. Look cool and all. Dunno why there is no energy bonus on frig for dem lasers as on cruiser tho.

These look nice though the frig could use another high slot.

Can these use covert cynos?

The cruiser missing the Cloak CPU bonus is intentional, the CPU is set with that in mind.

If you guys can show me fits that you feel SHOULD work with the cloak and don't because of missing the bonus please let me know, but we were able to run 6/10s with it set like this and it gives it some interesting tradeoffs when deciding what to do with it.

I do question the armor resistance bonus only on the fact you (CCP) have said how you really dislike the passive resistance bonuses. Is it wise to be introducing more ships with these into the game?

Otherwise they seem mostly fine in that their roles don't overshadow the ships already in the game as CovOps still hold stronger hacking bonus.

What skills will we need to fly these?

I don't think it would be good that Stratios gets larger drone bay than Navy Dominix and Rattlesnake.

Only 2 High slots on the Astero?? So, if you have a cloak and a probe launcher, you get no turrets at all, just drones...

I like the setup on the Stratios though.


I thought this too - but then it's a frigate and even with three high slots one turret or launcher is pretty useless anyway if you go covops/probes. Maybe an slight increase in drone bandwidth or 2/4/5 so you can fit an extra stab (and RUN AWAY)?

Everything is wonderful and tasteful, however 550 cargo capacity for the cruiser doesn't seem as a "large cargo" to me... It's roughly big as a Stabber for example and from my experience I can load stuff into my Stabber from just one "scavenger trip" (looting wrecks on gates, sites loot etc), so I would go for 1000 when comes to SOE.

Drop the cloak, drop the carebear bit, drop the laser bonus.

More bandwidth on a cruiser than on any battleship? Are the rest of the pirate factions going to be following this design trend? This is just better than the Gila in every way.

AWESOME! <3

But... I am missing the most important thing: where can I haz this??!

Ok, I am not sure if you guys are willing to share this information at this point...
I figure that at least one way to acquire the ships will be SoE LP stores. But unlike other pirate factions, there are no kill missions or plexes vs. SoE where these could possibly drop, am I right? And the price tag in the LP store will be rather steep.
So please do seriously consider (if you have not done already) adding these beauties to the loot tables of Data and/or Relic sites somewhere. I think this would nicely fit with the exploration theme of these ships.
(even though it's not PERFECTLY clear why a SoE BPC should drop in a Local Guristas Mainframe - but maybe in one of these Relic ship graveyards, that would be more appropriate)

We felt the ships needed a defensive bonus of some kind to help them run sites, but we didn't want to use the Gal side of the bonus for active armor rep (especially since people don't love active armor rep bonuses generally).

Please,if you can't increase the virus strength to match covert ops, let the covert ops skill add the other 5% i would hate not to be able to use this and forced to use covert ops instead. This is sisters of eve! They are meant to be good at scanning and exploration!

There is one EvE. Many people. Many lifestyles. WE are EvE

Can you jumps these via covert jump portals? Don't care about cyno.

just noticed the lack of expanded probe launcher cpu bonus

is this intentional? considering these are faction exploration ships i would have thought combat probing was at the forefront of their pvp usages

overall they seem a bit on the weak side when it comes to being covert in a pvp scenario. no cyno on the frigate, no combat probes on either. the cruiser certainly has respectable damage with any of the turret weapon systems, but will have trouble fitting reasonable tank although after skills i guess it actually has better than 300 cpu after all

the best thing about the frigate is it's the first ship in the game that can bridge for reasonable fuel cost and actually fight other frigates - something bomber fleets traditionally have a lot of trouble with

of course, anything that has the ability to fit a covert cloak can take a covert bridge
