Command Bursts

Jump to: navigation, search
Warfare-links.png Command Bursts are modules that increase the effectiveness of one or several aspects of a ship. They can only be fitted to certain ships but are extremely potent as they will give their bonuses to every single member of the fleet (up to 256 people) as long as they are within the area of effect of the burst.

Command Bursts

The command burst modules come in five different variants, each with three different type of charges giving different effects, as well as a tech one and a tech two version of the command burst modules. The only notable difference between the Command Burst I and Command Burst II module is that the tech two module is +25% stronger and the tech two variant requiring the specialization skill.

Upon activation of a Command Burst module you will get a Icon timer weapons.png weapon timer for 60 seconds and the bonuses will spread amongst any and all fleet members within your area of effect range. Both the duration and area of effect range is highly influenced by your skills and if you're using any of the special command mindlink implants or industrial cores.

  1. ^ Ships like Strategic Cruisers get three racial bonuses.
  2. ^ With the exception of the Porpoise, who only gets the mining bonus.
Command Processor rigs

There's a rig called Command Processor I that will allow your ship to fit an additional command burst module. The rig uses Icon calibration.png 150 calibration so ships are limited to +2 more command burst modules due to the high calibration cost (as ships cannot have more than 350 - 400 calibration available). This will allows an Orca to fit up to 5 command burst modules, command ships to get 4 command burst modules, command destroyers to fit 3 command burst modules etc. The balance comes with the fact that you'll be giving up precious rig slots, which often drastically lowers the tank potential of the ship.

For the armour and shield command burst using the Icon armor reinforcement.png Armor Reinforcement Charge or the Icon shield extension.png Shield Extension Charge it usually pays off to have one person run it, as the maximum bonus (+21.56% hit points) will give you a higher boost compared to a Module icon armor rig tech2.png Trimark Armor Pump II or Module icon shield rig tech2.png Core Defense Field Extender II rig (+20% hit points), not to mention the fact it gives this bonus to anyone within range.

Industrial core

The industrial core is a module that the Rorqual can fit that gives additional bonuses to Icon mining command burst.png Mining Foreman and Icon shield command burst.png Shield Command Burst modules, but only when activated. Activating that core locks the ship down in a similar manner to how siege works.

Calculating Command Burst bonuses

For those wondering how these different bonuses are calculated, here's the math behind the way CCP calculates Command Burst bonuses.

Formula for strength

The various multipliers for strength are calculated as follows:

Strength = Base charge bonus * (1 + specialization/100) * (1 + module/100) * (1 + ship/100) * (1 + mindlink/100) * (1 + core/100)[1]
  1. ^ This is a unique case for the Rorqual using the Industrial Core module.

Here are two examples of how the strength scale with skills, ship bonuses and implants. This assumes you swap to a tech two module once you have the required skills for it (indicated by the tech two icon in the chart).

The following is a bonus-scale for the 8% resist bonus:

Formula for duration

For duration the multipliers are calculated as follows:

Duration = 60 * (1 + command/100) * (1 + ship/100) * (1 + mindlink/100) * (1 + core/100)[1]
  1. ^ This is a unique case for the Rorqual using the Industrial Core module.

Here's a bonus-scale for the 60 second duration of command bursts:

  1. ^ a b The Rorqual gets a +5% bonus to mining bursts and +3% bonus to shield bursts.
  2. ^ a b The Orca gets a +3% bonus to mining bursts and +1% bonus to shield bursts.

Formula for area of effect range

The area of effect range is calculated like this:

Strength = Base charge bonus * (1 + (leadership/100) * (1 + (wing command/100) * (1 + (fleet command/100) * (1 + (ship/100) * (1 + (core/100)[1]
  1. ^ This is a unique case for the Rorqual using the Industrial Core module.

Here's a bonus-scale for the 15km area of effect range of command bursts:

Formula for reload speed

Since reload speed is affected by fewer things, the calculation is simple:

Reload speed = 60 * (1 - command specialist/100)

As such, the reload speed ranges from 60, Certificate-level1.png 54, Certificate-level2.png 48, Certificate-level3.png 42, Certificate-level4.png 36 and Certificate-level5.png 30 seconds based on your Command Burst Specialist skill.
