The Grievion is a Battlecruiser designed for ship-to-ship combat.


   

Description

The Grievion is a large Battlecruiser that has a total of eight Turrets. Two are Medium and six are Small. It is mostly grey in color with small faction colored marble pieces, most of which are currently stuck displaying as dark red.

The Grievion's latest model is notable for being much flatter than the original, but with an equally exposed underbelly. The ship has two large engine intakes visible on either side of the cockpit area. Its wings remain in the back and are similar to those of the original model. The top-back of the old model is where a Medium Railgun used to stand.

Interior

The Grievion's interior is split by a ramp up and a ramp down from the entryway. The ramp up and to the left leads to the bridge, while the ramp down and to the right leads to a small living quarters. The bridge has a tall, glowing cylinder with controls directly behind the pilot's seat, which itself has a glowing control panel. In front of the pilot's seat is a set of 3 cargo containers. The living quarters below the bridge has one bed and a small computer.

Advantages

  • High firepower.
  • Good mobility.
  • Great for escorts.
  • Good Spinals for its size.

Disadvantages

  • Expensive.
  • Vulnerable bottom.
  • Low health for its cost.

Strategy

  • It can take down ships of the same class or below with ease, provided it is able to destroy the ship before it escapes.
  • A good choice of a pirate ship if needing Medium Turret firepower, although the Sixfold is generally better due to its higher mobility.
  • It can be a substitute for the Ampharos due to a similar turret loadout and the advantage of higher mobility. However, the Ampharos is tougher and features 2 Large Cannons instead of 8 Small ones.
  • Use it's high mobility to ensure that enemy ships cannot reach it's vulnerable bottom.

Version History

  • The Grievion was subject to a major nerf in .47. It had 1 railgun and 8 small phasers removed, as well as a mobility nerf down from 155 / ? / 0.6.
  • Its speed was further nerfed to 100 in a later version.
  • Received a remodel in .64c.

Trivia

  • farterbotz, the Ex-Shipmaster, used it as a cautionary tale to nerf ships before actually adding them in.
  • There was a pumpkin on this ship for Halloween in 2016.
