The Manticore Battlecruiser is an Umbra Battlecruiser, designed for swift and deadly strikes. It is the first Battlecruiser in existence.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

With a high forward speed, the Manticore Battlecruiser is able to close in on targets quickly, making escaping from it impossible, much like cutters.

The Manticore's Bloodrush ability grants it increased weapon speed, as well as turning and strafe speed, granting it the maneuverability of a frigate and allowing its weapons to connect much more easily whenever an enemy enters its firing arc. This counters any ship that is suited to long-range weapons such as Battleships and Destroyers, making them easy prey for the Manticore's weapons. The Bloodrush also disrupts the shields of enemy ships, reducing their resistance to all weapons by a small amount.

The Manticore also has 10% Shield bypass, deals 20% additional damage to Altairian ships and 10% additional damage to battleships, making it the ultimate counter to the Paragon Battleship.

The Manticore also possesses the characteristic 100% Blight Nebula Resistance as well as 50% Alien Resistance, and a maximum of 40% Blight resistance when mked up.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Manticore loses out to the Wraith Cruiser in terms of durability, and will surely fall if it is forced into an engagement with it.

Unlike cutters, the Manticore does not have stasis resistance, and thus, any ship with Void NET Burst Torpedo or NET Torpedo can slow it down easily if the pilot is not careful, making it easy prey for most ships' weapons.
