The Society of Conscious Thought’s Gnosis Class Battlecruiser will be the only Battlecruiser sized hull that the Alpha Clones can pilot and it will be the only viable hull they can use to possibly run some Level 4 missions with.

I believe it will become a high demand item for the Alpha Clone gang once they get their skills up but we will have to see what CCP does in regards to the availability of the Gnosis – it looks like every subscribed toon between now and November will be getting one so we could see a flood on the market but once that subsides they could become fairly scarce once the numbers get dwindled down.

I’ve been playing around with some fits for the Gnosis and see some decent PvE options for it. I’m most familiar with Projectile Weapons and Angel Space so the fit below, which is based off of Abbadon21’s Caldari Alpha Clone Mission Fit, is geared towards that and it’s a fit that I believe would make a solid Hi-Sec PvE/Exploration Vessel.

I’d take on Refuge and Dens, I think it could also run the High-Sec Ghost Sites so I would run this with a Mobile Depot in the hold and carry both a Data and a Relic Analyzer which would give you the option to run any Exploration sites you come across.

For the Unrated Complexes I’d go for the Lookout for sure and I’d give the Watch a try but would take it slow to test the waters.

The only DED site it can fit into that you’ll scan down in High-Sec is the 4/10 and I’m not completely sure about it’s ability to run that second room in the 4/10 DED site but it may be doable, another one to take slow and test the waters? The biggest issue with the Gnosis is its speed – she’s a turtle – so while many ships can blitz that second room in the 4/10 the Gnosis will be on field much longer and with 30+ rats engaging it may be too much? It is worth a test though 🙂

I had not run across a ‘Ghost Site’ yet so when I saw the Standard Angel Covert Research Facility just a few jumps from home naturally I was a little perplexed as to what it was. Google is such an excellent tool for this kind of research and as soon as I typed it in I had a number of resources to glean data from but the most solid information came from the EVE University Wiki entries – Ghost Site & Ghost sites 100.

The recommended ship types to tackle one of these sites is an Armor-tanked T1 cruisers (like a Vexor or a Maller), a  Gnosis battlecruiser, a Stratios or a Strategic (T3) Cruiser. Out of those choices all I have access to and can actually fly is a Gnosis. I’ve got one Gnosis left from when I picked up the Collectors Edition and will be looking at fitting it out to run the Angel sites that are near our Low-sec home specifically. It will look something like this…

I recently purchased the EVE: The Second Decade Collector’s Edition and with it came a five-run blueprint copy of the impressive 10th Anniversary Gnosis Battlecruiser gift ship. I made all five, sold off three and after some discussions with the brother have fitted out the remaining two like so.
