HIGHLIGHTS

Right from its very appearance on a battlefield, the Harbinger proclaims its status as a massive weapon, a laser burning through the heart of the ungodly. Everything about it exhibits this focused intent, from the lights on its nose and wings that root out the infidels, to the large number of turreted high slots that serve to destroy them. Should any heathens be left alive after the Harbinger's initial assault, its drones will take care of them.

Summary

The Harbinger is the preferred Amarr battlecruiser, with considerably better performance than the Prophecy. The Harbinger is a well rounded battlecruiser; it doesn't have the legendary tank of the Drake or the firepower of the Hurricane, but can be depended on to perform well in any role.

This battlecruiser is a shield tanked cruiser's nightmare, with the the ability to wield six heavy pulse lasers and still have the CPU and powergrid left over to fit a respectable tank allowing it to wreak havoc on the battlefield. The Harbinger, even with a large tank, ironically has the ability to be rather agile within engagements. Its large CPU and Powergrid gives it the ability to fit a 10MN Microwarpdrive and burn towards many targets that are out of range, while the 75m3 drone bay and bandwidth allows the Harbinger to field either a full flight of medium drones or a full flight or light drones, depending on circumstances. This particular battlecruiser is a great incentive to train the Battlecruiser skill to at least IV. Lastly, the Harbinger has the ability to be fit either a full armor or shield tank.

For Incursions the Harbinger is not ideal, but can serve as a starting point for trying them out and to use while training into a more suitable ship. See Amarr ship progression for more information on where to go from here.

The Retribution 1.1 update removed one turret slot but increased the damage increase per skill level from 5% to 10%, meaning that, with Battlecruiser V trained, the Harbinger does even more damage than before. However, having skills below Battlecruiser IV mean that the Harbinger does less damage than it did pre-patch.

  • Pilots with Engineering V and Advanced Weapons Upgrades IV can fit a Medium Energy Neutralizer II in the utility high slot. Pilots with these skills may also swap out the Focused Medium Pulse Laser IIs and Medium Capacitor Booster II for a rack of Heavy Pulse Laser IIs and a Cap Recharger II instead for increased DPS.

  • This is a difficult fit: with perfect skills you'll have less than 1 CPU spare! However it will deliver an impressive 750 to 850 dps at 8-10 km, and 550 - 625 at 25 - 30 km with 56 - 57 K EHP.
  • One of the weaknesses of the Heavy Pulse Laser is the low tracking speed. Always carry a Tracking Speed Script.
  • For ammunition, on top of Conflagration and Scotch a set of Imperial Navy Gamma or Xray is recommended for the increased tracking speed and slightly better range than the Conflagration.
  • Use either the light or the medium drones, depending on your target. You can also carry one set of damage and 1 set of ECM drones.
