The Warden is an agile PvP Battleship.


Description

The Warden is a shield-breaker counterpart to the Hawklight, and has many similarities to its counterpart aside of the health type it excels at countering.

Interior

The Warden has a fairly interesting interior containing a teleport pad to the interior where there is control panels to the left and right of the interior, there is also a chair in the middle.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Target needs to be a little above for all turrets to fire.
  • Somewhat mediocre Shield health, although it is enough to be sufficient for tanking kinetic weaponry for a while.
  • Blind spot underneath.
  • Mediocre Hull damage output, although it is better than the Prowler.
  • Requires good spinal aim, as over a vast majority of the Shield damage output comes from them.

Strategy

  • Extremely good at defending Starbases; the low cost makes it less likely to be focused by a fleet, and the shield shredding properties will quickly scare any attackers into retreating.
  • Use this ship to counter Cruisers, Battlecruisers or Battleships. It won't do well against ships bigger than itself or extremely agile ships.

Version History

  • Buffed in .66b, having its shield go from 4000 to 2750 and its hull going from 2000 to 4150, as well as its light gatling laser being changed to a Medium Flak Cannon.
  • 2 Medium Phasers and 1 Triple Heavy Cannon removed and Hull reduced to 3150 in version .69a1.

Trivia

  • The Warden is supposed to be the Hawklight's shield-breaker counterpart.
  • Somewhat better than the Hawklight if used correctly.
  • The Warden has the same mobility as the hawklight, as well as the exact opposite weapon loadout and shield/hull.
