So I had my missioning Arbitrator popped by Ashen Shugar the other day after stumbling stupidly into lowsec after a cheaper set of drones. He was flying a Gnosis fitted with Heavy Ion Blasters. My ship lasted all of 10 seconds.
I’d not been aware of the Gnosis before as it was a special release but can now be picked up for only 55M on the market.
Gnosis bonuses seem huge:
25% bonus to Medium Energy Turret, Medium Hybrid Turret and Medium Projectile Turret damage
25% bonus to Heavy Missile and Heavy Assault Missile damage
50% bonus to Drone hitpoints and damage
37.5% bonus to Core and Combat Scanner Probe strength
• Can fit Warfare Link modules
It looks like it should be a monster for both PVP and PVE however it doesn’t feature much in ship discussions I’ve read. So, what are it’s major drawbacks?
