Can somebody please produce these? They are way overpriced and thus the updake of T3 ships is LOW.

So do something about it CCP. What is their expected price point for t3 cruiers and sub systems?

They stated the new rigging is a factor of 5, what is it for T3 cruisers? Give guidence.

Isn't this going to drop already since all the sleeper components etc. have an increased drop rate? (not shure though)

I predict a price drop in a few weeks. I'll let the more savvy marketeers figure out what's propping up demand in the short term.

Meh. The skills needed aren't exactly a dime a dozen, and the volume traded was pretty damn low so far to not justify too many people spending months on training a generic invention/manufacture alt to the skill levels required to build T3 cruisers and subsystems. If overall price of components keeps on dropping, more people will eventually train to build'em.

CCP stated that they want T3 cruisers cost like HAC. However I think we are hearing what we want to hear instead of what they say. Instead of bringing T2 price all the way down they will instead make HAC's go up Twisted Evil

Err ... sort of. You know dyspo and prom. Not that I complain. I am part of entity that has a slice of that that pie and it's a sweet pie indeed.

Anything based on hardcore carebearing with a fighting/pvp alt is doomed to oblivion. T2 is the opposite of T3, T3 blows.

I'm horrible, I can't remember numbers OR names...

But anyway. The t3 salvage piece with increased drop rate's price went way down, and another one went way up. Like the mineral basket, no?

Please Wait one to two months full production will be starting within that time scale hopefully.

I've been making them since they were introduced and I only sell them to my alliance mates. To be honest demand is high enough within my alliance not to have to go to the wider marketplace for buyers ever.

Personally, I have one Tengu, one Legion and one Proteus. I'll get my Loki in a few days when I finish skilling for it.

Overall T3 cruisers are a bit of a mixed bag. While some setups definately have great potential, the overall package is slightly lacking and appears seriously imbalanced between the four racial flavours. For someone like me who can fly all four races it's not a problem, but I have great sympathy for any Amarr specc'ed player trying to get something out of the Legion that approaches being worth the price of admission.

It all depends on what you're using the ship for though, there are niches where the Legion excels, and others like the Proteus utterly fails.

But really, are any of those niches worth the price tag at this time? I'm not convinced myself.

why do the prices need to come down? they started out at almost 2bill for a hull plus subs now they are less than 600m for practicaly any setup. isn't that an impresive enough drop already?


for the amount of time it takes to produce a single hull the current 300-330m price tag is perfectly fair.

think of the production chain. you need a WH op. thats going to require a few billion to get off the ground. then you need to react the gass,thats another billion or more then you need to build the components that go into the subs and hulls, then you need another POS for subs and hull production thats another billion or more. and lets not even get into the skills.

you want people to go through all that work and invest in all the infrastructure and then sell them to you for what? the price of a t2 cruiser? its not worth the effort at that price.

that depends on each person obviously, but in my particular application, the Legion provided a combination of flexibility and survivability that other alternatives save for the Tengu, were unable to match, and so far it has more than paid for itself.

Though tbh outside of that particular usage, I can't see the Legion being very useful for much of anything else due to the price.

Build costs are high so my sell cost is high. I expect a reasonable margin because volumes are low and risk is pretty high. Simple as that

Yes 100% imo (early adopter legion pilot) 330 kills in it (with gang ofc)

I also trained up an alt to build them but could only see like 10% markup so didnt bother though i cant be assed with research POS etc.
