Greetings and salutations Capsuleers,
The “Harbinger of Gneiss”, a
Rorqual ORE Development Edition
is now posted for auction
infos on the hull:
No, not a skin. The actual ship. Its stats are similar to a 2012 Rorqual with double the mining foreman link effectiveness and 100% drone damage bonus on top
It has a different slot layout, stats, traits and description from a regular Rorq. It does show up as ORE Development edition on the overview and when hovering over the hull in space.
Most importantly, it is currently assumed to be the only one of its kind.
Why does our group believe that?
It was available as a special promotion code from april 2014 onwards, but in may 2015 every bpc and ship in people’s hangars were converted to skin licenses.
This ship’s bpc was stuck in an expired contract and therefore survived the conversion. It is therefore a neat collector’s item.
Since may of 2015 there was not a single one posted on the forums for sale, sold in any ingame market or had kills/got killed on zkillboard.
Entity, eve’s most renowned collector, confirmed that not only does he not have such a ship in his possession (he will most likely participate today <3) but also that none of his contacts have one. yet.
It is neither glitched nor gamebreaking in any way (can be fit, contracted and used like any regular 2012 rorq) and I’ve confirmed that I am able to keep it.
The proceedings of this auction will be as follows:
