CCP Rise recently wrote on the EVE-O forum the following presentation for the new Sisters of EVE Battleship.
I am very relieved to finally show you the Sisters of EVE Battleship, the Nestor. We weren’t able to get it finalized before Rubicon went out, but that’s alright because now it makes a nice Christmas present (just kidding it’s not until (late)January).
We all agreed that keeping the covert cloak theme was not going to work for the battleship. Instead, we’ve kept the rest of the exploration feel from the Stratios and Astero by giving the Nestor hacking and probing bonuses, but instead of cloaking it will receive a bonus to remote armor repair amount, drawing on the Sisters of EVE themes of aid and relief. On top of that, the Nestor (as designed currently) has incredibly low mass – around half the mass of a normal Battleship. This should make it very popular in wormholes. The rest of the attribute layout follows the principles from the other Sisters of EVE ships pretty closely, as do the bonuses.
Here’s the details:
Amarr Battleship Bonuses:
4% Armor resistances per level
Gallente Battleship Bonuses:
10% drone damage and hitpoints per level
50% bonus to remote repair amount
50% bonus to large energy turret optimal range
50% increased strength for scan probes
+10 virus strength for relic and data analyzers
Slot layout: 7H, 6M, 6L; 5 turrets, 0 launchers
Fittings: 11250 PWG, 680 CPU
Defense (shields / armor / hull): 8900 / 9950 / 9900
Capacitor (amount / recharge rate / cap/s) : 6200 / 1044 / 5.9
Mobility (max velocity / agility / mass / align time): 92 / .18 / 56000000 / 13.97
Drones (bandwidth / bay): 125 / 500
Targeting (max targeting range / Scan Resolution / Max Locked targets): 75km / 85 / 7
Sensor strength: 24 Magnetometric
Signature radius: 465
Cargo Capacity: 700
It will be acquired in the same way that the Stratios and Astero are, via Sisters of EVE LP stores. Here are the LP offer specifics:
Discount Nestor (From the Sanctuary)
Discount Nestor Blueprint (From the Sanctuary)
I wanted to show you guys some art, but wasn’t able to get ahold of the newest version today so I’ll edit later with it.
Hope this is exciting! Let me know
