New Destroyers

Destroyers are primarily attack vessels, and with all the attacking that goes on in EVE, we wanted to add more options to the list of how to go about doing it.

Retribution introduces four new destroyers for pilots that like iittle ships and big damage. The Gallente and Amarr destroyers have been designed with drone pilots in mind, while the Minmatar and Caldari destroyers are for pilots that enjoy missile-based assaults.

All four ships are dedicated damage dealers with slight variations to suit different strategies in combat. The Amarr Dragoon excels at neutralizing the enemy, sporting bonuses to aid in draining the enemy’s capacitor. The Gallente Algos sports some extra boosts to allow their drones to ambush and tear up enemies at close range. The Caldari Corax and Minmatar Talwar differ primarily in the damage type that is amplified by each ship’s bonuses. The Corax is also a good long-range combat ship, while the Talwar really shines in an up close and personal brawl.
