The MA is still good enough believe it or not, as long as the steel in question is not either hardened arveshium or bicorb crystal. The server when calculating the final assembly will apply the corresponding cap and then weigh your resource against it. As the normal type steels cap is 400 then you a...

Thx :) I agree fully with you on the assembly bonus's currently to crafting suits, personally i only have the experiment skills only in my own suits. Only reason i mention them is that given SOE's track record you never know what is round the corner, in hindsight if i was making up new suits i would...

Part six. everything else. Chassis are a huge resource hog, high end well made chassis will certainly command a premium price especially on a server where there is a lot of pvp. For general chassis sales though don't commit your very best resources to them, personally i look out for resources that h...

Part 5 Power, Caps and DI's The reactor sits as the source of power to all ship functions, it should have a high enough gen rate to more than cope with overloaded ship systems whilst having as low a mass as possible. With recent changes to reactor loot drops and crafted reactor stats it is possible ...

Part four, Ship offence and defence. The weapons platforms on a ship are essentially what the ship is built round, there are a variety of blaster and missile types as well as a missile counter measure system. On the whole crafted blasters are a poor relation to there RE'd counterparts, they suffer b...

Part three, Getting the ship to move! This of course takes in engines as well as boosters. Ship Engines have allways been a hot topic of debate amongst pilots and shipwrights, untill recently there was only 1 type of engine sub that was considered usefull, that was the engine overdriver sub. Now how...

Part two. Ship protection. All ships can have two types of protection, shielding and armour. Armour first up. Generally the best selling armours have decent armour hitpoints, it is the last line of defence before a ship starts taking serious damage and pilots will want it to be as tough as possible,...

Bumping an old post wasn't my intention, just stating my take on things. It's not like i'm trolling thru a lot of pages of threads and i feel that anyone should know where a forum contributor is coming from :)

On any POB chassis i would tend to max out the hitpoint line first, its no biggie but where a chassis could be used in pvp i like to make em as tough as possible, i apply the same thinking to a Y8 reactor when its going into a normal POB, 40k gen rate from a mining reactor is more than ample, the hi...

Ok Im curious, have you heard something about countermeasures I havent? You seem to be saying only to use Chaff Launchers and that the effectiveness rating means nothing? Hi folks, all CM's currently work exactly the same. Plain old chaff is as good if not better than EM emitters, more uses and sto...
