The Harvester was the first Miner to ever have a warp drive.
The Harvesterwas the first warp capable miner in Galaxy.
It mines at about the same speed as the Tango. Its smaller size makes it less of a target compared to the Tango, but it also travels a bit slower. It’s total health of 1200 divides evenly between hull and shields (600/600.)
If under fire you can flee quickly.
Small, making it hard to aim at.
If used while under the effects of New Player Immunity, you can mine without the risk of taking damage.
Low health pool.
Small Ore Hold.
No defense against anything.
Slow mining speed.
Slow acceleration and deceleration.
Beaten by the Hornet in everything except cargo hold and speed.
Aliens often target miners.
Make sure to constantly check for hostile ships heading in your direction. Check your minimap every 30 seconds.
There isn't much risk to being at War, as you can warp away to another area quickly, and because your ship is small, it likely won't be followed by a ship like a Dreadnought because of their slow speed.
Watch out if you're at war. You're likely to be ambushed.
Don't mine at the Mega Base If you are at war and you aren't protected. (Unless you have new player protection).
Received a remodel in version .56b.
Nerfed in an unknown version, losing 175 Cargo Hold.
