About Those Cruisers...

Yesterday I wrote that I was feeling comfortable taking on NPC cruisers in Eve Online with my Rifter. Then I did a mission and discovered that the "boss" NPC cruisers are a LOT nastier customers than the trash cruisers that were in my way through the first four missions of the story line and the first three rooms of the instance. Oh, I managed to kill the boss cruiser, but not until I lost half my structure and was trailing flame.

The lesson from this? Never feel complacent in Eve. Never.

  1. Part of the surprise is that there are many "cruiser" rats of differing abilities and defences, even though they look the same. Best way to be sure is to look at the bounty on them: the higher, the tougher :)
