Woohoo! we are getting new repair drones! read on CCP Fozzie’s announcement on the official EVE-O forums:
We’ve got another addition ready to gather some feedback for. This one will release in a future Rubicon point release (I know which internal release it will be in but we’re not sure yet if it will be called 1.2 or 1.3 in public).
We will be releasing a full line of Hull Repair Drones! We expect that these drones will be especially useful for those times when you need to rep a relatively small amount of structure damage, such as an incapped Starbase module.
There will be Hull Repair Drones in Light, Medium and Heavy sizes, both T1 and T2. Their skill requirements will follow the same pattern as Armor Rep Drones, except using the Remote Hull Repair Systems skill instead of the Remote Armor Repair Systems skill. Like other logistic drones, these will require the Repair Drone Operation skill as well as the Drones skill.
The Repair Drone Operation skill and Drone Repair Augmentor rigs will be expanded to apply their rep rate bonus to Hull Maintenance Bots as well as Armor and Shield bots.
All the drones will apply their reps every 5s, and the hull repaired per cycle for each drone will be:
Light Hull Maintenance Bot I – 6
Light Hull Maintenance Bot II – 7
Medium Hull Maintenance Bot I – 12
Medium Hull Maintenance Bot II – 16
Heavy Hull Maintenance Bot I – 30
Heavy Hull Maintenance Bot II – 36
We’ll let you guys know when these hit SISI for your testing pleasure. It will be a few weeks since our testing priority right now is the new Universe Data changes that are on SISI as we speak.
Let us know what you think!
