Anyone know what the cause is? There was a price increase after the POS exploit was canned, but then it went back down to about 85 million for awhile. Now you'll be hard pressed to find one under 90, and there's only one! available in the entire domain region. [At 98 million isk.]

Not sure of the exact cause. But I'm sure the words 'supply' and 'demand' will come up with the next couple responses. Cool


Sounds similar to what happened with Falcons the other day in Jita.

Pilgrim is much more the flavor of the month post-QR, imo Razz

Heh, I don't really mind the new prices too much, it's making me a nice little profit... Smile

But I'd still be interested in knowing what's possibly causing it so I can plan ahead in purchases.

7 lows on a cruiser hull. 7 lows. It can snipe or go short range or tank while maintaining decent speed. One of the best HACs post QR. Shame about the drone bay.

Or you can load it down with cargo expanders and haul expensive stuff safely.

Not that I'd do that. Embarassed ugh

I'd love to have a drone bay on the zealot. Even just a 15m3 one. Scrambling frigates can be a pain in the ass on missions without drones to kill them.

I really wish the zealot would get the Omen's paltry 15m3 drone bay and huge cargohold :( I wish I could carry more cap boosters, then I might try a crazy dual repped close range pseudo-Deimos/Sacrilege Zealot.

...and out come the trolls.

How about we keep this thread to discussions around the price of zealots? It's why I started the thread, and I'd rather it not devolve into a trollfest. If you want that, why not go start another thread? I suggest the title "lol zealots are underpowered plz boost" for maximum effect.

Edit:
Speaking of Zealot prices, I was looking at Amarr's market again, and the moving average for Zealots is pretty steady at around 25 per day. There's only one zealot for sale in the region currently; I think this could be a traders' wet dream. Assuming you have enough cargo space to transport zealots in bulk, and can find zealots cheap enough to be worth shipping and selling. Cool

Calm down there tiger. Remember what you're getting angry over.

I'd heard that it costs about 40 million isk to construct a zealot, but that doesn't seem in line with how much they sell for.

I'm not getting angry. I'm simply saying GD probably isn't the best place for this Neutral

No, what you're saying is that I need to get off general discussion because YOU don't think the thread is relevant. More importantly, you only state that the thread should be elsewhere after I ask people not to troll about whether zealots are overpowered or not.

You know, it's general discussion for a reason, I don't mind if the thread goes all over the place, but I do prefer it to have a semblance of reasonable discourse.

Regardless, it's too late for me to change my mind on the matter: The thread is posted, the damage is done. I will note however, that until you brought it to my attention, I had not realized there was a board for discussing market details such as this. So uh, thanks for that, I guess.

Mere conincidence that I chanced upon this thread, really

If all you're doing is talking about the generalities behind Zealots, fine. GD is the place. But the title of this thread is very specific, is it not?

Why are you calling people trolls when the first 4 words of their post answers what is in my opinion a pretty dumb question?

Onestly, it does not hurt to check that yourself. Also, you must add the invention costs (and sometimes you can be very unlucky and burn lots of ISK for nothing). And don't forget that it takes at least several days to build a zealot (components + ship), so i guess you'll want a little bit of profit from that activity.

Once, there was a beautiful cruiser, a heavy assault cruiser, one of a new generation of tech 2 ships. It had four turrets, powerful fast-tracking lasers, and the firepower to melt heavily tanked battleships without breaking a sweat. But the people cried out, for the cruiser seared their ringpieces and haulers with ease; lasers were nerfed, hit-points were multiplied, and the poor cruiser lost its teeth.

But, as with all things, time undoes the folly of men. The grumblings of dedicated Zealot specialists, coupled with an extensive kidnapping/blackmail campaign conducted by the Guiding Hand Social Club, targeting certain CCP employees (Reynir, your beloved pet budgie is unharmed; Oveur, the pictures have been destroyed) - the Zealot regained its bite. The fifth turret turned it into what it was meant to be - a zone denial platform using beams for point offense, or even a pulse hunter for swatting interceptors out of the sky. Rejoice.
