Ancient Reapers are advanced versions of Alien Reapers introduced as NPC ships in the event AXIS. See Ancient Reaper/NPC for more details.

Much much later, during the Tier 8 story arc, Rhea Dage provided the Miner Rebellion with their adaptation of this fearsome ship, retaining a fraction of its long range and the ability to spawn a large amount of spawned ships.

Note that Tier 8 ships have a fixed repair time which is not affected by equipment.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Ancient Reaper has extremely long range that is comparable with that of dreadnoughts. Coupled with its 360-degree firing arc, this enables it to run directly away from enemies whilst sniping at them, much like the fighting style of a Tyrant with Scourge Fuel. Adding to that, the Ancient Reaper can continuously spawn Alien Reapers upon dealing a small amount of health damage to its enemies, further distracting them. This makes the Ancient Reaper an excellent kiting ship overall.

It has enhanced stats over other non-dreadnought Tier 8 ships, with larger mass reductions and cargo capacity, as well as bonuses to DPS and shield energy. Moreover, most of its maximum potential is achieved at Mk V rather than at Mk VI, reducing the necessity to upgrade the ship.

This ship has a large amount of shield regeneration, and like other Tier 8 Altairian ships, can regenerate its shields even after being depleted, making it difficult to take down without the use of Shield Bypass.

Unlike other Altairian Hulls, the Ancient Reaper has resistance to Blight Damage and can thus fare better against enemy Umbra Hulls in general.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Ancient Reaper is relatively slow and can be caught up to by pretty much any Tier 8 ship in time. This can be somewhat mitigated by the NET Missile, however.

The spawned Reapers have quite a bit of health and damage, but keeping the damage output of Tier 8 fleets in perspective, they could still be taken down rather quickly. Enemies could also simply ignore the Reapers in order to avoid triggering the Ancient Reaper's Lex Talionis overdrive.

Despite its 100% resistance to Blight Nebula Fields, no shields available to the ship have resistance against that, so they will still deplete if the Ancient Reaper flies in them.
