Advanced Ship

This ship is an Advanced ship. It is a powerful, semi-limited ship that stands out among others of its class and may require special build materials or quests.

The Osiris is an Advanced Dreadnought with custom Turrets.

Description

The Osiris is a powerful Dreadnought and was the second ship in the game to have Artifacts in its materials cost (although they have since been removed). The ship thins out towards the front end, but despite a "barrel-like" appearance, the Osiris has no forward-facing Spinals, and instead was the first ship to employ broadside Spinals.

Interior

The interior of the Osiris is a large room with a control panel and a large screen at the front, left, and right. The Event Horizon Ship Yard logo is displayed on the left and right walls. A nice chair is placed in the middle, surrounded by what appears to be a glass border or wall. On the left wall, or "screen", there is an "Argos Combat Coordinator". On the front "screen", there are lines which most likely represent text.

Advantages

  • Powerful and unique Advanced Turrets and 6 Large Phasers give more DPS than most other Dreadnoughts and some Super-Capitals.
  • Turrets and Spinals are both optimized for broadside combat.
  • High Combined Health of 15,450 allows it to tank heavy fire in a siege or team fight.
  • Fantastic for PvP against other Dreadnoughts, Carriers, and even Super Capitals.
  • Good speed and turn speed for its size
  • Large Cargo Hold for a Dreadnought.
  • Since it is a Dreadnought, it requires less loyalty than an equivalent Super Capital, and three can be spawned per faction.

Disadvantages

  • Somewhat Vulnerable backside; only 1 or 2 non-Quantum Turrets have line-of-sight.
  • Fighting broadside leaves a large surface area available for spinal and turret fire, increasing the damage you may receive.
  • On rotation, if you lose it outside of its month, you have to wait for it to come back in rotation.
  • Expensive, costing 1 million credits and hard to find artifacts.
  • Inconsistent spinal aiming due to being broadside.
  • Its status as an Advanced Ship puts a big target on your head, and its semi-limited nature means it will take a while to get back if lost.

Strategy

  • Broadsiding is key for all Turrets to hit.
  • Beware of swarms of small Ships that can overwhelm and outrun the Osiris' weaponry.
  • If you are up against a Prototype or Super Capital, try to get under them and behind them so you can take it down without it attacking you with their main, heavy-hitting Turrets.
  • You can take on any Dreadnought in a 1v1, so don't hesitate when a Nemesis or Apocalypse shows up to Siege your Starbase (assuming they are alone in an empty server)
  • Always use in a fleet as factions target players using the Osiris.
  • When fighting other ships, use your high mobility to try and work your way into your enemy's weak points.

Trivia

  • Accidentally released in the build menu on 5/18/2020. Was found by a BlackHawk member on the Galaxy Development Server. About 10-20 were built in a single private server before it was shut down. The equivalent materials used in this glitch cost about 471,302 with a Level 26 Warehouse, much cheaper compared to the 2 million credit cost while it was in rotation.
  • 3rd most expensive non-Super Capital ship in the game.
  • The first ship to have broadside Spinals.
  • Considered by many as better or more versatile than a Super Capital due to the fleet you can build up with these, and the amount of firepower on the Osiris. However, some people believe a Super Capital is better due to their superior health, and sometimes superior DPS.
  • This ship is one of the few Ships in the game to contain Quantum/Advanced Cannons. Only 7 other ships have this, the Imperator, Zhen, Prototype X-3, Cyber Leviathan, Nightmare, Frankenemi, and the Baby Tyrant
  • It was featured last in rotation during April 2020. It was found under the stairs of the Derelict Station, which could be accessed through a non-collidable wall behind the emergency gun. There, you would find the Shady Soldier who would sell you it for 2,000,000 credits.
  • Has a faction named after it: The Osiris Legion
  • Used to have the same amount and type of broadside spinals as the Genesis.
  • Sells for 258,935 Credits
  • Has the Event Horizon Shipyards logo next to the Quantum Turrets.
  • Re-added in version 72e. with a new cost of 1 million credits, 3 Antimatter shards, 25 Plasma batteries and 5 Data archives.
  • (Previously?) Sold in the top level of Freedom Base by the Strange Character.
  • Highest DPS out of all build menu dreadnoughts and most limited dreadnoughts in the game, even higher than few Super Capital ships, although the favourable output DPS is pretty much impossible to reach if broadside spinals are not well used.
