ok... this can't be real...

I almost fainted when I saw this on escrow...

GISTII A-TYPE Small Shield Booster
Tech 1
Shield bonus = 57
Activation cost = 13 energy
Time/duration = 2.00 seconds

To give you a comparison:

Dread Guristas Small Shield Booster
Tech 1
Shield Bonus = 30
Activation Cost = 20 energy
Time/Duration = 1.60 seconds

Small Shield Booster II
Tech 2
Shield Bonus = 30
Activation Cost = 20 energy
Time/Duration = 2.00 seconds

OK.... My questions to ALL of CCP are...

1)Is this a REAL module? (is it usable or did it slip through the cracks some how?)
2)Why doesn't it show up in the market?
3)If it is real, is there also a med, large, and xlarge GISTII A-TYPE shield booster?
4)Will they also have unbelievably high stats like this one?

Imagine this shield booster fitted to a ceptor or an assault friggy... Shocked

Complex-Officer loot. And there is one for sale on the market forum I think.

But remember, you'll have to get past dozens of complex BS and frigs and only have a very small chance of getting this.

hmm, something wrong with loot then. High end complex tend to not drop anything nice at all. these are quite clearly über to the max and should be exceedingly rare.

Might be an error after all.

My small gistii shield booster took about 5+ times (stopped counting after that) of doing the same complex to get it.

If they follow the same pattern as the microwarp drive naming then the Gistii tag on the item means it is a small.
The type a, b, c is how good it is

Cruiser class ones will be Gistum, again type a,b, and c and the Battleship size will be Gist, type a,b and c.

A BS with a MWD is the size of a small moon anyway, an extra 20% to sig rad would make mininal difference compared to the exessive speed gain Very Happy very worth it when only one speed mod can be used at a time....

Hell yeah !
Why want it otherwise ? To kill more npc with to get more nice mods maybe, but at some moments your gonna be quite ready to use em to kill someone else right ?

it has to be a bug. you get type-E and type-D mods fairly easily where type-D is better than type-E. this is type-A equivalent without type-Bs and type-Cs. why would they skip type-Bs and C-s? this has to be a broken loot table.
