The Wraith Cruiser is the Umbra Cruiser, capable of nullifying chain effects. It has also been designed to counter Altairian technology, having shield bypass as well as a damage boost against Altairian ships.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Wraith is the ultimate front-line brawler, possessing high base health, as well as high amounts of counter chain. Its damage boost against Altairian technology as well as shield bypass makes it brutally effective against Bastion Cruisers, due to their tendency to be shield heavy, as well as frequent usage of the Epsilon ECHO Cannon.
Its Culling hunting mode also capable of further enhancing its tanking ability, allowing it to jam the weapons of that particular enemy ship, resulting in a fire, charge and cooldown disruption. It also gains Ablation in the process, restoring damage taken when it deals damage to the target enemy ship.
It also has a 100% Blight Nebula Resist, allowing it to fly through Blight Nebulas without any noticeable damage, as well as Alien resist, reducing the effectiveness of xeno Weapons against it by a significant amount.
Lastly, Its +10% cutter damage bonus also allows it to take down cutters faster in a brawl.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Like all Cruisers, Wraith Cruisers have high repair times as well.
Wraiths are also vulnerable to Battleships such as the Paragon Battleship, which possess a damage modifier against cruisers allowing them to destroy them faster.
