Greetings,

I'm CCP Affinity from Team Kuromaku and we have been working on Ghost Sites for Rubicon. I will use this thread to answer questions as they start to appear on SISI and reveal information as we get closer to release.


What are Ghost Sites?

Ghost sites are a new, rare type of cosmic anomaly. They will appear on your system scanner and will be a new style of exploration site featuring fast paced hacking and combat.

Where will they be located?

Ghost Sites will be in ALL areas of space - including WH

What loot can I get in Ghost Sites?

Sites in each area of space will drop slightly different items, including blueprints for the first ever implant set to be manufactured by players. The blueprints and one of the required materials will be sourced from the Ghost Sites.

What are the Implants?

The new set of player manufactured pirate implants, called 'Ascendancy' implants will vastly improve your warp speed

When we add content we should think about adding it to WH space also :) This is not supposed to be a huge WH feature, but they will get the best blueprint and it's worth mentioning they will be in WH space also as that is not always a given.

Appreciate it.

Let's hope they all return... Someday...

On another note, what constitutes the "slightly different" items? Or they just specifically the stuff for making these implants.

Also, requires a pos to build the implants or can they be made in a station?

I don't want to go into specifics right now ... but the blueprints to complete the set will be spread around the various sites.. with the best blueprint only appearing in WH sites and manufacturing will work very similar to modules :)

With the current planned nerf to warp speeds, these will become pretty much required if you want to fly a BS. While that, IMO, is a bad mechanic in and of itself, it's made worse by the fact that the omega will take up the same slot as certain other implants that are extremely useful and, in some cases, required, such as the powergrid implants.

If not for the warp speed nerf for BCs and BS, I would be totally supportive of the addition of these implants to the game. Instead, I find myself less than enthusiastic about their introduction.

While the sites sound cool, and the BPCs for the implants are going to be a neat step in the right direction for T2 implants, what other types of loot can we expect to see in these sites?

I say T2 implants because t1 are still a good isk sink from LP stores and should stay there for that very reason.

Wrayeth; I'd say warp speeds got a massive buff. Depends on the class you fly, I guess. ;)

I actually like the smaller ships getting faster; it allows them to better fulfill their role. Cool

I just don't like BS and BCs getting slower. Evil

I would like to propose a new title for running the 'ghost' sites. "GHOSTBUSTER'. Cheesy maybe but there I coined it. Pirate

Have there been any changes to the hacking minigame?

This new set of implants, will it be like the other Pirate Implant sets that have an attribute bonus?

And will there be an extra Hardwiring Implant to go with the set to increase the primary bonus to warp speed?

DMC;

There's already a warp speed implant. +5% to +18% -- Eifyr and Co. 'Rogue' Warp Drive Speed WS-6XX

And evidently there's also already a rig, too? I mean, CRAZY. Guess everyone just ignored it because the stat was so unimportant. :x


Affinity! Question for you! What's the total bonus from the full set?

So a Ghostbuster running Ghost Sites would have a Ghost Protocol, right?

Course that just might make it Mission : Impossible.

Yeah, those are Hardwiring Implants for slots 6 to 10. Doesn't affect Attributes.

The Pirate Implants are for Attribute slots 1 to 5 with a small bonus to Attributes. There's also an extra Hardwiring Implant for slot 6 which increases the effect of the whole set.

Since these new implants are like the Pirate sets, then these new implants should also have a bonus to Attributes as well.

When can we expect these implants on SiSi? I have a pressing need to test them to see what fleets my mega is still viable for.
