They need too sort out the web bonus is it strength like serpentis or range as the bhaalgorn gets? that and reduce the OP webs/web bonuses

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

Nerf web strength, Make the blaster Eagle worth using

The new skill is needed because the Tactical Reconfiguration one gives a fuel reduction to Strontium Clathrates. I'm pretty sure you guys don't want to overflow your cargo with those P

Also, remember the bastion cycle time is only 60 seconds when maxed. For Incursions, you can always pulse it on / off depending on circumstances.


You need Jump Portal Generation for the Covert Jump Portal Generator, even though there is a useless activation cost reduction there, too. Anything else?

The amount a vargur can tank atm is already crazy. Now give it 30% resist across the board and double the shield repair amount....

That thing will be absolutly crazy. Looking forward to doing c6 sites solo in a ASB Vargur. (ASBs will also be buffed with odyssey 1.1 fyi)

Heated discussions on PIZZA comms about how useless in PVP this is in its current state.

Sounds like an amazing anom runner though. Cool

a little OP isn't it?

..and need to keep cargo for possible salvaging.

Without proper bonus to salvaging (reduced cycle time) fitting Salvager on Marauder is not viable option. In current state, it's just better and faster to make bookmark on wreck and bring Noctis. And 3 Tractor beams for looting is the best option.
I wonder why you don't want to increase tractor beam bonus? It's not like it might affect PVP balance in any way or leave Noctis without currrent role.

So if I did my math right, a max skilled MJD pilot with a Marauder can jump in 2.7 seconds? 9 * .3 (70% reduction) = 2.7


No, that's the spool up timer when you activate the MJD. The bonus reduces reactivation time by 70%. Thus, 180s*0.3 = 54 seconds.

For the love of God stop introducing new skills and modules for no reason and just balance the ships. This Bastion thing will be incredibly OP in niche PvP situations and most PvE situations and incredibly useless the rest of the time.

Scrams turn off MJDs and MWDs. Warp Disruptors do not.

The time it will take will still be painful because of the lack of a DPS bonus, so have fun whittling away at them. Probably be better soloing C4s.
