That's when I sat up straight in my chair.
Faction plates and shield extenders.
Faction implants that increase sensor strength.
Faction cap charges that are 25% smaller.
Faction energy transfer array and power diagnostic system.
Hello baby! That's some sexy shit. The new drones are especially interesting:
1. Faction light, medium and heavy combat drones (drone types are based from the FW militia):I like that they don't have more damage than Tech II drones but better attributes in tracking and hitpoints.
Attributes: -15% damage, +10% tracking, +100% armor and shield hitpoints next to TII drones.
Offer requirements: x5 of them for x5 TI drones, between 3,000-5,000 LP and 3-5m ISK depending on the size
2. Faction sentry drones (drone types are based from the FW militia):
Attributes: -10% damage, +5% tracking, +100% armor and shield hitpoints next to TII drones
Offer requirements: x5 of them for x5 TI drones, 6,000 LP and 6m ISK
And the new cap charges?
5. Faction cap charges (sizes from 100 to 800, available for all FW militias):
Attributes: 25% less volume than regular cap boosters
Total requirements: x20 for x20 regular cap boosters, between 100-2,000 LP, 100k-2m ISK depending on size
This is huge (or smaller actually)! Because not only can you get more charges into your cap booster, you can carry more of them in your cargo hold which is nice for cap heavy battleships that count on those charges for tanks and weapons during PvP.
These new items are not game changing but its definitely going to shake up the field of ship fittings. I can't wait to see how they price on the market a few months after the patch.
