It is a little sad to see that there was no official thread from CCP where the new precursor ships where introduced like all other ships that came before.
I will start this thread as a placeholder thread for the upcoming precursor logi cruisers, which except that they look very cool, not much is known about them.
Hoboleaks just informed me about precursor remote armor repair modules, the spool up reps, as I like to call them.
The precursor remote reps come in the following variations:
- Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer I
- Heavy Mutadaptive Scoped Remote Armor Repairer
- Heavy Mutadaptive Compact Remote Armor Repairer
- Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer II
- Perun Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer (faction)
Only one spool-up remote repairer is allowed on a ship. Range seems a little short and the maximum spool up bonus is 200% or 3x 184hp at 5 second cycle time.
The Zarmazd looks so damn cool OMG, you have to see this!!! She also seems a lot more ready to role now. Generous fitting and a similar signature radius to an Oneiros. She has nice thermal resistance and a glaring explosive resist hole like most Gallente ships have.
Call me excited how she will perform.
So the mutadaptive remote armor repairer seem to be close to finalized and look more polished now.
However, even though they are currently listed in the medium remote armor repairer, those monstrosities belong into the large remote armor repairers list.
As of today (November 28th) the heavy mutadaptive remote armor repairers start at 448 hp armor per cycle with a 6 seconds cycle time and 512hp for the t2 one.
That’s 1280hp per cycle at full spool up or 2.5 large remote armor repairers, pretty cool huh?
But that also means that the fitting has increased to more large remote armor repairer levels with 48 cpu and 330 powergrid for the meta ones and 72 cpu and 396 powergrid for the t2 one.
This one reminds me a little of the Oneiros and comes with a 4/4/6 slot layout with plenty of cpu and powergrid to work with if you treat her like an Exequror.
As soon as I get more details, I will update this.
So here’s a nice look into the future, the Zarmazd looks like having a more Guardian like resist profile and just got another low slot, which gives it a 4/4/6 slot layout in need of a bit powergrid.
Both ships had a significant increase in drone bay size with the Zarmazd having 125m³ and 75mbit and the Rovida 50mbit and a 100m³ drone bay.
So my hope is that the drones get the Exequror drone rep bonus, which would make both ship the strongest subcapital logi so far that isn’t a sleeper boat.
If I am guessing correctly that would give the Rovida 4.5 remote reps and the Zarmazd 5.5 remote reps without the drones at full spool up - yikes.
Keep an eye out for updates and nervously chew your fingernails with me.
