Just for those that are curious, here’s a topic that will soon hold all the info that we currently have on Destroyers as a class! (No NDA violations here, as it has all been released publicly)
If you have something to add just add it to the comments.
1: They are extremely durable. Even more so than (most) Guard Frigates.
2: They are slow as glaciers.
3: They hold immense firepower and are true to their name as Destroyers.
4: They have (many) main-weapon turrets.
5: They will have special new modules including the following:
A: Repulsor; Pushes nearby enemies away while dealing damage to them.
B: Gravity Lens; Pulls in enemies from a set distance.
C: Wormhole Generator; Creates a wormhole for the user to travel through.
6: They will have portions of their ships able to be destroyed or deactivated.
Namely engines, capacitors, and main turrets.
7: They will have large turrets of indeterminate firepower mounted on them.
8: They are crafted much like Secret Projects.
9: They are big.
10: They will be at the middle-tier ranks of 8, 11, and 14.
11: It is undecided how much Neodium will be needed to craft each ship.
12: They are submarines.
13: They will be released somewhen close to January 8-13th.
14: They seem to work more effectively using a sort of “Broadsides” tactic.
15: They seem to have some sort of Phase-Shield like the Guards of the game.
16: Their shields are extremely wide and could easily protect some allies from attacks.
17: These wide shields also let enemies that dare to venture close be able to attack the hull and onboard structures very easily.
18: They may or may not have a giant death-beam.
19: They have what seems to be a rapid-fire missile battery.
This battery appears to fire and track enemies on its own.
This structure also appears to be destructible.
20: There are no recorded (public) instances of a Destroyer actually being completely destroyed. Only severely crippled.
21: There are firing “sections” of the main weapon where you can get more or less effective DPS, depending on where you fire from your ship.
There are forward turrets, broadside turrets, belly turrets, and rear turrets.
Sections work only one at a time.
Broadside combines all sections and seems to be the most effective. (I love this)
22: The minimap and class symbol for Destroyers is unique and really quite strange as it combines a feature from each of the other classes.
23: Federation Rank 8 Destroyer is named “Procyon”.
25: They seem to have either set, or interchangeable main turrets that fire automatically at nearby targets.
Known possible types;
26: They will require quite the sum of Neodium to craft the internal structures. Unknown other requirements as well.
