As announced in the EVE Keynote speech during Fanfest 2014 by CCP Fozzie, with the Summer 2014 expansion we will see a Tech 2 version of the popular Venture mining frigate.

The new Prospect ship is the first expedition frigate with a focus on "ninja mining" in dangerous space.

Read all about this exciting new ship in CCP Fozzie's latest blog Fortune Favors the Bold!

Currently, mining gas in null sec is difficult/impossible to do at any large scale in ventures because the gas clouds actually cause explosions that are difficult to tank in a frigate. Once you get to 2-3+ gas miners, they're each triggering explosions and just blowing up the poor little frigates. Without any role specific bonus to prevent these explosions, I don't see how the T2 variant will be any more usable at a large scale for null sec gas mining.

Could there be another role bonus added to the Prospect to reduce explosion probability, or damage, or something like that, so that you can actually use the dedicated gas mining ships to gas mine in null sec instead of having to use something like turret-heavy BCs that can tank the damage?

Was a little disappointed because i was hoping it would be an Intaki Syndicate modification of the Venture because of the Gas harvester bonus and the "mining in hostile territories" theme. But nice ship after all Blink

I like the ore changes, since it pokes some holes in the needlessly tight separation of resources between security levels. That in turn creates a more varied gameplay environment in general and provides those tasty rare treats that players tend to enjoy.

If I'm reading this right, there's a new skill, "Expedition Frigate", to study? What are the other pre-requisites for using this ship?

no drones .. funky

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

Why doesn't it have 3 turret slots?

Is it getting mining laser yield bonuses for both skills or is that a typo?

It's got three highslots, but only 2 turrets. The third high is a utility high.

Isn't this better than the venture in every possible way? I thought that wasn't supposed to be the point of T2 ships. It looks like the only way the venture is any better is in price, which, also, you said you weren't going to do any more.

edit: I guess this one doesn't have the built in warp core strength, but how frequently did that bonus ever actually come into play in the past?

Maxim 6. If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

This is great, I can't wait to hear stories of asteroid thievery and claim jumping. Or to put it another way: "Yeehaw".
