why are they so cheap ? think you can pick up a bpc for around 400-450 mark.
if you have a mini char and was disappointed with the maelstrom how can you not thanks god for the wonderful gift that is the machartiel..... cheap to buy but easy to fit ?
i would live some oppinions on this ship as from the first day i was one i knew i had to have it....

No, its still massively over-priced, all faction BS are considering what you get for your money.

Fly a Maelstrom for less than half the price. Even better, just fly a Dominix, ridiculously cheap for the best none capital ship vessel in the game.

It's nice to own a Machariel though purely so you can say you have one and at 450mil I guess its an opporuntity not to be missed. If you're actually looking for bang for buck though get a Domi or a Geddon :P

They used to be around 1.2bil-800mil, then RA started running complexes extensively and the market got flooded...

It would be nice if other people would use complexes to their full potential so we could have cheap rattlesnakes, vindicators, nightmares, and bhaalgorns.

Thankfully none of these ships are good at PVE.

Im sry but why exactly is a Rattlesnake crappy for PVE?

I dont fly a Rsnake but if a pest/raven/phoon can solo with a bit of care why not a snake/mach and given the only real fear of loss should be to lag then what risk is there (Unless your in lowsec with Igno I guess)?

Edit for clarity

You really think so? If a plex in FIX space (or LV space, or D2 space, or BoB space) started ****ting ISK, do you think it wouldn't get run?

Besides, none of the other plexes are bugged anyway Laughing

Sometimes ppl are to lazy to farm plexes...
They are chance based. You can finish it and get nothing :( Or get few faction items...

The overseer effects are still worth a pretty penny

The overseer was bugged pre-Kali meaning you could sit in a plex for 23hrs and kill the boss every 40mins i think, so tonnes of Machariels went onto the market. Since this bug was resolved i anticipated the price to rocket up to normal faction BS costs but for some reason it's remained more or less the same, whilst gist b-type xlarge boosters have almost trebled i think (RA stockpiling their machs?Very Happy) In my opinion the machariel is one of the best faction BS out there and coupled with it's low price, i'm saving up for one to pimp right now.
