When this terror was first seen haunting the spacelanes, rumors abounded about its design, which bore the indelible stamp of Sansha Kuvakei's unique madness. Who else, the conspiracy theorists argued, could come up with such marvelously twisted designs?
Caldari Battleship bonuses (per skill level):
The Nightmare is a pirate faction laser boat. It is designed to be shield tanked. While the nightmare only has 4 turret slots, the Nightmare's 150% damage bonus makes them deal as much damage as 10 unbonused turrets, without any skill training and at less than half the capacitor cost. The Nightmare has a respectable 7 mid slots to accommodate its tank. Unfortunately, as a shield tanker and a laser boat, the Nightmare's capacitor requirements are very high and its base capacitor has trouble fulfilling the demand, so mid slots often have to be used for capacitor upgrades as well as tank.
The Nightmare has a hefty price tag that makes it unpopular in PvP, but it a solid choice for PvE. The high firepower and tracking bonus makes it a decent choice for incursions.
The Nightmare is capable of a multitude of roles. No matter what role it is in, due to the nature of laser boats Capacitor Systems Operation and Capacitor Management are very important to get to V. Controlled Bursts is another very important skill.
Worth noting is that you only need to train Caldari Battleship I to make nigh full use of this ship, since the Caldari skill only increases the afterburner efficiency (which is only useful if you actually fit an afterburner).
