i missed it in the original post first time i read it; it uses armor rigging skills and has the same penalty (speed).


Yeah missed it too. We need to help Fozzie understand how devastating this penalty is.

Are we also getting hull resistance rigs? What about hull rep rigs? Why not make it a full blown third option for tanking?

What about Honor rigs?

Increases Honor Tank by 20/25% for Tech1/Tech2.

Could fit a bunch on a Taranis. To go well with that Bulkhead 4k ehp build.

actually, reduced speed isn't that much of an issue for an orca. assuming it's a 5% penalty with max skills that's what? 3.75 m/s per rig?

oh noes.

The only ship that will use this is Orca, and everyone will use those now. Make it 15% stacking penalty for EVERY type of cargo hold and it might be ballanced. Then you have choice, either fit tank or fit cargo. Also why cargo expanders lower hull but hull expanders do not lower cargo holds?

Hull rigs on orcas, with DC and Bulkhead. Yeah, not looking forward to trying to pop those.


Ah! Hull tanking at it's finest.

The market may be limited but this is a humorous and good addition.

Another small change in our Summer 2014 release that we're ready to collect feedback on:

We're planning on adding a series of Hull HP rigs. These rigs will use the Armor Rigging skill, with the same speed decrease penalty as trimarks. They will be available in all sizes.
The T1 rigs would increase hull hitpoints by 20%, at the cost of 50 calibration.
The T2 rigs would increase hull hitpoints by 25%, at the cost of 75 calibration.

We don't expect these to replace trimarks and CDFEs for most players, but having the option should be interesting in several cases.

Let us know what you think!

Will have to refit my orca from 3x core defence to those babies now :)

For many Gallente ships, if you want full-on hardcore buffer tank then this will be the way to go.

Was about to complain about invincible Orcas and this being a stealth highsec buff.

Then I remembered that highsec carebears don't tank their Orcas as is.

Damage Control II is your hull resist mod lol

Faction DCUs would be nice though. Imagine Tech 2 resistance profiles on your structure... I don't even know if that would be worth it, but #YOLO #SWAG #!

I've been thinking about Bushido fits to defend planetary satellites...or like objectives...hmmmm.

How about letting us overheat our damage mods then!!

+15% extra resists per damage type, but it loses all resists for shield/armor.

3x hull rig Damage control Bulkhead Orca insanity.

I already use an Orca instead of a freighter for shipping. Never going back now.

Looking forward to trying an hull tanked Algos. Now all we need is an ancillary hull rep

No rigs that affect hull repairers? Seriously?
