Today I found a newsletter (#18) in my mailbox ! Apparently I haven’t been keeping up on the news, as I was surprised to read about patch 1.1.
The Amarr Empire has long boasted about its powerful ships and a fervent willingness to destroy all that opposes them. Finally, the Omen, Zealot and Apocalypse class ships are getting a boost to reflect that devastating potential.
That’s great news ! My combat alt (who is slowly catching up on Morphisat, she’s got 20mil skill points now) is mainly Amarr and has a hangar filled with Amarr ships. Recently she has been training up missile skills and can now fly a T2 Raven to assist my Level 4 mission running. She has already been doing that in a Guardian and a Zealot (to take care of frigs and cruisers on specific missions). Also have been using a Sacrilige for that purpose. It’s an amazing tank and now with my upped missile skills it does a fine job.
Anyway it seems CCP have finally heard the numerous cries over the past years that Amarr was gimped. I hope this patch will put things right.
Some other underused ships have gotten a boost as well.
In order to satisfy your lust for carnage, modifications have also come for the Eagle, Moa, Raptor and Ferox class vessels.
Some love for the Amarr (Eve-O Forum)
