The Avalon is a light, Spinal-focused Dreadnought.

Description

The Avalon is a small but powerful Dreadnought that can fire a volley of Torpedoes. Its spinal and turret damage is insanely high if all of them land a hit, but they can be hard to aim. The Avalon's total health is somewhat lower for its class, making this ship vulnerable and an easy kill for smaller, faster ships.

Interior

The interior is small but detailed. The player enters through a teleporter at the rear of the ship into a square room inside the ship with a control seat in the rear, with screens surrounding it.

Advantages

  • Very high Hull damage output, making this ship even better than the Ridgebreaker at taking down hulled or weakened Capital Ships.
  • Small for a Dreadnought.
  • Has 3 Large Torpedoes, which allow it to out-range Starbases by 2k studs if attempting a torpedo siege as well as providing a great amount of hull and shield DPS.
  • Very good for pirating large miners and freighters (Prepavaca, Orca, E Class etc.) with its high hull damage.
  • Large Cargo Hold.
  • Good overall damage for a Dreadnought.
  • One of the most effective Dreadnoughts for sieging, most of the weapons are long range and deal high amounts of damage.
  • Can solo any level of Starbase with ease, as long as the base is undefended.

Disadvantages

  • Fails to destroy defended Starbases or Ships without support.
  • Tied with the Andromeda for the lowest total health of all Dreadnoughts.
  • Very inaccurate Turrets, making it hard to hit anything with the Heavy Cannons and LR Laser.
  • Turning may be rather sluggish
  • Inexperienced players will have a difficult time aiming the Torpedoes.
  • A small blindspot at the back, but this can be fixed by turning the ship upward, a ship small enough to exploit the blindspot will likely die almost instantly.

Strategy

  • The Avalon should be used as a hull breaker to dive hulled ships. Due to docking mechanics, you won't have a hard time hitting your torpedoes.
  • The element of surprise is crucial if you want to survive in battle. Warp in and fire your Spinals, then Warp out before they react.
  • Make sure the ship faces upwards so Turrets and Spinals can hit.
  • If you're participating in a Siege, stay at a more distant range where your torpedoes will hit the Starbase. If the base is distracted, come closer to use all of your DPS and cause heavy damage.
  • Pay attention and check the Minimap often to make sure you're not about to be ambushed. Your relatively low health means you must always avoid damage.
  • Act as an extra pile of guns and not a flagship. The Avalon can do a lot of damage, but being targeted greatly increases your chances of being destroyed.
  • Encourage your team to bring more Avalons or other ships with torpedoes and at least one support ship. A torpedo siege is a very effective way to destroy a Starbase. If anybody tries to defend the base, the siege ships can rip them apart while the support ship takes care of any smaller enemies.
