Blood Zealot

Given the competition in Blood Raider Gauntlet sites I wanted to swap to something not drone based. Just to fly something different, I put together a Zealot to use in the sites.

I tested it against some standard anomalies, including Drones which can be troublesome for Medium turrets to hit. It handled everything without issue, aside the lock times being a little long.

I then set out to find some Blood Raider Gauntlet sites to run. I aimed for quieter systems off trade routes, and spent more than 90 minutes travelling across Domain and Tash-Murkon, in the end finding only 3!

One was uncontested, and the Zealot cleared the site and collected the loot in exactly 5 minutes. The second site was contested, with a Dominix Battleship sitting at 15km from the gate but with the Frigates cleared. I could have easily flown past him and into the final room, but I left the pilot to it. I returned a few minutes later after checking out a couple dead end systems and noticed the site was still on overview and the Dominix wasn’t on scan. Not sure what happened there, but I looted the site anyway. The last site I started by myself, but had an Ishtar join me. I managed to win the race for the Blood Battlecruiser and collected the loot from that site. Lasers trumped drones.

So it is certainly a workable hull. I might keep it until the blood event finishes.
