The Azreal is a powerful Dreadnought that was part of the Halloween Event 2019.

Description

The Azreal is a mid-range turret-focused variant of the Abaddon.

This ship excels at providing firepower support in fleets against capital ships and Diving Ships with it's extremely high firepower.

Appearance

The Azreal is a very futuristic and slim dreadnought with many fins jutting out of the ship, similar to the Abaddon. At the front are its 6 Spinal Barrels which gives off an effect. The Ship's design somewhat resembles an aquatic creature.

The Azreal shares the same interior as the Abaddon and Lucifer, with a black, foggy hallway. At the front, there is a yellow glowing orb with electricity coming out of it, and in front of it there is yellow text that says "SANCTION AZREAL ONLINE".

Advantages

  • Extremely high firepower for a Dreadnought.
  • Has a thin structure making it rather difficult to hit with weapons when facing towards an opponent.
  • Fantastic for PvP against other Capital ships due to its firepower.
  • Good maneuverability for a Dreadnought with a turn speed of 0.17.

Disadvantages

  • Must be facing towards the target to use all weapons.
  • Azreal's Spinals have poor arcs and they can be difficult to get used to.
  • Large Blindspots underneath and on the back of the ship.
  • Extremely expensive for a Dreadnought, having high Material Costs and costing a Class B Permit.
  • The extremely loud ambient noises can be heard from almost all across the map.

Strategies

  • Try not to engage small Ships, as your Turrets are not accurate enough to hit them.
  • Use the high firepower on this ship to dive and chase down vulnerable or isolated Capital Ships.
  • It is very good at brawling other Capital ships, with strong Turret firepower and high turnspeed.
  • It cannot support itself well without a fleet, so try staying in a fleet.
  • Avoid swarms of small, agile ships; your turrets aren't accurate enough to hit and destroy them, on top of your size and maneuverability making easy for the swarms to stay in your blind-spots. Bring support ships if possible to protect yourself.
