The Nidhogg is a fast Cruiser with powerful Shield breaking capabilities.

Description

The Nidhogg is a fast Cruiser with Shield-Breaking capabilities. It can be compared to the Sixfold or Lusso in terms of Spinal output, however, the Spinals on this ship do more damage than both of them.

The exterior is shaped like a cone, with inverted wings on the end of the ship.

Interior

The Nidhogg has no interior. There is just a black pass-through cover over a small square pilot's seat.

Advantages

  • Has very high Shield damage.
  • Very high health for its class.
  • Decent maneuverability.
  • Balanced health.
  • Large Cargo hold.

Disadvantages

  • Against ships with high hull integrity, it is unable to make a real dent.
  • Quite expensive for its class.
  • Rather bad turret placement.
  • Both the Spectre and Nova are marginally better than this, both beating it in spinal weaponry, Turrets and cost.

Strategy

  • Stay in fleets or groups of smaller cruisers.
  • While pirating is a viable option, it's much more suited for fleet PvP.
