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 🙂

The RL brother has come up with a new theory in which I’ve apparently got a horseshoe up my arse. I ran a couple of sites over the weekend and scored some good drops. The first was a Gas Site I scanned down, an Elohim Sooth Sayer Distribution Base, and was able to hack all the cans and came out with a couple of Standard Sooth Sayer Booster BPCs and a Neurotoxin Control Skill Book. The other was a Relic Site and I can’t remember the name of it but it dropped an Angel Control Tower BPC!

I’m not sure that it has anything to do with a horseshoe, it’s more likely a case of the shotgun effect – I’m just running everything I find that I think I can handle and some that may be just out of reach but maybe I can snag a prize or two before getting wrecked.

Had a few good exploration finds over the weekend…

Scanned down and jumped into a Class 2 Wormhole from the home system. I always get a little rush jumping into the unknown of W-Space, you just never know what you’re going to find and this one was untouched. When I’m hunting/exploring in W-Space I make it a point to at least identify all the Cosmic Signatures in the System I’m working and this C-2 had a ton! There had to have been at least twenty Signatures to scan down and I can’t remember what they all were but I did pinpoint ten hackable exploration sites, six Relic and four Data.

I had jumped in flying the Hunting Hound hoping I might find something to shoot but no joy – it was a small System and all I could see on the D-Scan were some Control Towers, there was not one ship in system. The first thing I do anytime I jump into a Wormhole is bookmark my exit and after scanning down all the Sigs and bookmarking all the hackable sites I warped back to it, jumped out, re-shipped into my Cheetah and headed back in.

I managed to hack all but two of the cans (two Data site cans) and ended up with a little over $175 million ISK in the hold and found a  3-run Dark Blood Large Beam Laser Battery BPC – not one of the epic BPC’s but it’s the first Faction BPC I’ve found and it got me pretty excited!

I also stumbled upon my first few Drone Data Sites and scored a number of ‘Augmented’ & ‘Integrated’ Drone BPC’s.
