The Raven is one of the fastest and cheapest Frigates in the game.

   

Description

The Raven is a fast and maneuverable Frigate that can distract bigger ships and can outmaneuver them, getting into their blind spots. Its major weakness is that it's not very durable, preventing it from fighting alone for extended periods of time.

Advantages

  • Very agile.
  • Easy to remake in the event of it being destroyed.
  • Spinals do decent damage against shields and have a good rate of fire.
  • Turret provides decent hull damage
  • Overall, a great ship for beginners.

Disadvantages

  • Low amount of health, staying at top speed is critical to staying alive.
  • Hard to aim with, making attacking hard unless you are fighting slow or large targets.
  • Slow for a frigate; even the Wasp beats it in terms of speed.

Strategy

  • Sometimes overestimated by new players who try to fight better ships or bases, usually ending with them losing their Raven.
  • Useful for distracting enemy base turrets and destroying enemy fighters.
  • Fly into large ships' blind spots and slowly deal damage.

Trivia

  • The Raven is currently the smallest ownable combat ship in the game.
  • It's one of the most common starter ships.
  • The cheapest ship in the game.
  • There is a ship called by the same name in EVE Online.
  • Good for scouting enemy fleets as it has high speed, warp drive, and a small profile.
  • Received a remodel decreasing its size and slightly altering appearance, a minor buff soon followed, adding its small flak cannon.
  • Certain players will spam this ship. One player spent over 100k credits doing so.
