Its Phased Projectile field ensures more direct damage to the enemy's armor.

The Valkyrie Carrier is a Tier 4 hull with more advanced VEGA Security technology.

As a carrier, this ship generates a Support Field that improves the combat effectiveness of other friendly ships, making it the centerpiece of a fleet.

All player Valkyrie Carriers are equipped with the Phase Shifter, while NPC ones sometimes use the Stasis Field.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Valkyrie Carrier is commonly used in cancer fleets, which contain long-range ships such as destroyers to guarantee that the enemy takes more damage than the user does. The extra 25% shield bypass stacks with mark upgrade bonuses, rendering shields almost completely useless.

Battleship fleets that are boosted by the Phase Shifter gain a distinct advantage against others that use recharging shields, by inflicting much more direct health damage without having to deplete their shields.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Ragnarok Carrier is more reliable because opponents can simply choose to run and not engage Valkyrie Carrier fleets.

Valkyrie Carriers are not useful against NPC Targets because NPC ships usually have sufficient health to outlast shield depletion, even against high levels of shield bypass.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Valkyrie Carrier was first featured in a video months before the event, seen in the KIXEYE Youtube Video around 0:32-0:33 featuring two scenes of the Valkyrie Carrier in combat.
  • A picture of the Valkyrie Carrier's specs was supposedly leaked on the forums, foreshadowing its availability in Shadow Strike.
  • Before the Shadow Strike event started, players thought that the Valkyrie Carrier would have a Stasis Field rather than a Phase Shifter. This led to disappointment when it was introduced to the players.
    • The support field was swapped due to concerns that it would be too overpowered, despite the Agility Field providing a similar (but opposite) effect.
