It'd be nice if the noctis could fight off NPC frigates in hisec when it's salvaging. It shouldn't have to run away when it's attacked by a Corpii scavenger or something. Even 15 mbits would be sufficient, though I'd probably give it a full 25.

More importantly, the Noctis should have some means to retaliate against ninja salvagers. We need to let newbies do dumb things...Twisted EvilYARRRR!!

Reasonable, but unlikely.

Destroyers didn't have drone bays... honestly a salvage ship really shouldn't either... would make it too overpowered.

And if this is a stealth salvage drone thread... please... get over yourself.

Personally I wouldn't care but I don't think its earth shattering either.

Hardy thing wrecks can stand up the the power of a salvage ship as it is now. Noctis is way too OP as a salvage ship as we know currently.

Giving a minor combat/defense feature is hardly OP.

Currently, there is only one ship that has a salvage bonus - and it's not a destroyer (and it's WAY OP for salvage too).

Might be possible to speed tank it?

I don't understand.

Surely you either hand in the mission, meaning no rats, or you are with an alt, who should be tanking.

if they ever make a t2 variations, (Combat Salvager) that could follow fleets and salvage on site while having some tank to hold together if primaried, then yes add to that 25 drone bay. no need for more, no need for less.

but thats a different topic ugh as it is the certain proposal posted i have to say i am not in favor of the t1 hull getting a not needed drone bay. Wink

I'll give you 5Mbit.

I think a drone bay would be nice. As it stands a person needing to pop a few drones to break a lock on by a warp disrupturing rat or two would help out alot.
