The Daemon Battleship is the Pharmakon Battleship, designed to overwhelm enemy targets with sheer DPS. It is designed specifically to take out Wraith Cruisers with its Umbra and Cruiser damage modifiers.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Daemon Battleship is designed to decimate enemy targets, gaining increased weapon speed and AoE radius when it exits phasing, and drastically increased movement speed while phased.

Like other Pharmakon Hulls, it has the ability to inflict Damage Over Time, which greatly complements its Phasing ability, since this ship can continue to deal damage when in Phase State, while its enemies cannot.

It is specifically designed to counter Umbra Hulls, in particular the Wraith Cruiser, with its additional damage to Umbra Hulls and Cruiser Hulls, as well as increased resistance to Blight weaponry as it is upgraded.

It is also able to pass through Plasma and Blight Nebula fields unharmed, and possesses 50% resistance to Plasma weaponry.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Daemon is not as durable as the Ogre Battleship, possessing less base health. Being a battleship, they are sitting ducks if enemy ships are able to get close to it.

While it is able to phase in and out of combat when equipped with a screen, it is unable to fully utilize its weapons while in Phase State.

Without resistance to Alien weapons, as well as Counter Chain and Counter Pierce, the Daemon is vulnerable to the effects of most Altairian weapons, and a fleet of them will most likely be destroyed very quickly.

At lower Mks, the Daemon does not have as high a resistance to Blight weapons. Umbra ships can take advantage of this to deal full damage to them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The ship's 270 AU/h sector speed is unintended and has been reduced to 240 AU/h, which is the norm for battleships, in the late February 2019 update.
  • The ship originally suffered from a bug where the bonus Piercing only applies to Torpedoes, instead of all weapons. This has been fixed in the late February 2019 update.
  • The ship's hitbox size, rear speed and acceleration being identical to that of the Trojan Cruiser is unintended and has be set to the norm for battleships in the early April 2019 update. See here: https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/758678
  • The Daemon Battleship design is reminiscent of a Cannon with 2 barrels.
