Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
It can make use of its Myrs to generate Blight Nebula Fields, then fly into them in order to receive both defensive and offensive bonuses from its Stalk overdrive. The closer it gets to enemies, the faster its Myrs are destroyed such that they respawn at a higher rate, which in turn fuels its Rile overdrive.
Its speed, when combined with the 15 km engagement range of its spawned ships, enables it to kite most enemies except for dreadnoughts, battlecruisers and other uniques such as the Zeus, in addition to all Pharmakon Hulls due to their speed bonus in Phase State. Despite this speed, it is no pushover in terms of defense either, with four slots for Ablative Armor, on par with the Behemoth Dreadnought.
In PvE, its spawned ships can keep the enemy AI distracted from the main fleet, thus reducing the amount of repair time taken from the battle.
Like other Umbra ships, this ship deals extra damage against Altairian hulls.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Blight Nebula Fields generated by its spawned ships are ineffective against Umbra Hulls and to a lesser extent, Pharmakon Hulls. Moreover, enemy Umbra Hulls can quickly recover their ablative armor by targeting and/or destroying the Myrs, making this ship weak against its brethren.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Aerico is the first Umbra ship with spawner slots.
- All player ships had their Resurgence values modified as a result of the late February 2020 update.
- At the start of the Penultimate event, all active players were gifted a fleet of 6 Aericos.
- The repair time of all Tier 7 ships apart from dreadnoughts has been standardized to a flat 2 hours (similar to existing Tier 8 ships) in the late September 2020 update.
