Default Aegis Veteran or Elite?

Hi there,

I am thinking about purchasing an Aegis design. However, I'm not sure which design is better.

Could the members of this community please recommend one to me, with the pros and cons?

Much appreciated!

Default Depends

Well i got both and it depends on what you are gonna be doing hunting or cubing and doing GG

if you are going fot killing aliens, cubing or doing GG go for veteran no doubt those 5% boosters in exp and honor are helpful but if you are gonna hunt go for elite

I got both

I would stay with veteran since aegis is generally used to be an alien hunter ship, to the most of players at least, you will use better the bonus of EXP/honour and it's cheaper, if you want something to hunt players on enemy maps i'd rather to buy a golitah skill design :S

The Aegis Veteran is better mainly cause not only does it increase armory capacity but also gives a 5% XP and Honor bonus that is a nice division between the two. Not only that, the Elite takes away 25% of both the shield and repair arm which I feel are too important to lose as is. Yeah the pod is increased by 50% but honestly I don't find that one as critical as the shield beam and repair beam. I'd stick with Veteran if I was you

ytr968,


I would have to agree with Mullet-X aka AtariJaguar[MSPF] because it is the most thorough answer, and I will leave this thread open for more opinions.

I agree that Veteran is more worth it cause its 100k uridium cheaper, But I have a question on top of yours. Is the veteran design worth getting or should i stick to spending uridium on upgrading drones and other stuff??

Could someone please clarify on the time changes?

Here's from the wiki:
"changes to the duration of the Aegis' skills: 50% increase for Repair Pod, 20% decrease for Shield Repair and 10% decrease for HP Repair"

What does that mean for each skill?

Thanks!

Cooldown: 90 seconds

Shield Repair Beam
Duration: 5 seconds
Cooldown: 30 seconds

Cooldown: 120 seconds

For the Elite Design:

(All cooldown times remain the same).

Do you have further questions?
