Back in September I posted my preferred Orca travel fit, with Gist C-Type 100MN Afterburner.
I suggested that this allowed you to use the 10 second quick warp trick of a 100MN Microwarp Drive, but was much easier to fit.
A couple days later Jester posted his own Speed Warp Orca fit
I remarked in the comments that you could use a 100MN Afterburner instead.
Unnoticed, a while later someone queried this – with Jester suggesting he would bet money that it didn’t work.
With mild ignition I responded to say it was possible, and that I had used the process hundreds of times. Later in the day I loaded Fraps and recorded the proof.
Only to find I was wrong.
*Sound of head hitting desk*
The Afterburner has a base cycle time of 10 seconds. However it is increased by 10% for every rank you have in Afterburner. If you can use a T2 100MN Afterburner, your cycle time will be 14 seconds.
So I was right – you can use the Gist C-Type 100MN Afterburner to initiate a quicker warp in an Orca. However I was wrong, it will take 14 seconds on average instead of 10.
It was while editing this video when the penny dropped:
That will teach me for opening my mouth.
I’ve basically done nothing in EVE for the last fortnight aside changing skills. Real life has been murdering me. I am hoping for some log in time over the next few days.
