Weapon Color: Blue

Discription:
Nothing really to say here. The idea came to me when me and a friend were discussing weapons that NOBODY uses. Ettin was the first thing that came to mind, so I made an AC for it. So far I like how it runs, especially how well it runs with Lotus if you know what your doing. Ettin is BY FAR the hardest weapon I've used(Sub-par accuracy, drains like hell, and weighs as much as an freakin' MT), but jousting with that thing reaps so many rewards LOL

Tactics:
Whore out the OB while firing away with SR3/Nmyphe. Once the joust line has been set, OB in and fire away. When the opponents AP is below 2100, drop Ettin and SR3(if there is no ammo left) and rush in using 69H and ELF2.

Of course this is only one of the many stratagies I use with Frostfell, but this is how I normally run her if the match is in my favor.

Known Issues:
Slow for its weight class(375 max boost speed, but OB eliminates this)
You HAVE to watch your energy reserves and make sure the Ettin shots land.

Vs. Record:
21-10

Notes:
Changed left hanger to ELF2
Added Urchins in the inside slot

iirc, the phage hardly does anything at all. you can also drop the r+ so you you can have room for the SS and the marishi.

<a href='http://ravenrepublic.net/index.php?showtopic=154' target='_blank'>We had a design contest once around the Ettin</a> (which we never finished lol). Smile)

Suffice it to say, it was hard, mostly because of all the extra rules.

Aside from the R3, everything else here needs very careful management. Gotta watch that heat, heh.

Why the Eye? It's quite drainy.

Stability and Radar, I'm guessing...

I actually tried a design with the Ettin before and I wasnt too fond of it because its velocity is so slow leading to crap tracking. You have to be at close range to score a hit effectively and with the Ettin weighing so much, manueverability is shot.

So in short...i ended that project lol.

which is why you joust with weapons like the 81G and the ETTIN.

Yes, Yes I know this, but the Ettin drains so much that you have to make Jousts crisp and concise and something one must work at...just that I havent worked at it so I dropped it Tongue

Yeah thats why I play the midrange game. If im fightin somebody that plays CQ, then landing shots with Ettin is quite easy, long range pilots give me a bit of trouble, but most of em are either light(which means that two shots from Ettin will drop em about 4k), or they are heavy, which makes jousting them sooo much fun.

Even though I haven't prefect my energy management with this AC. I'm still be able to rack in some wins and even makes some sick comebacks(Beat a OB bruiser when he had about 4200 AP on me, three precise shots with Ettin brought that down REAL quick.)

Oh and btw, the Eye is for the stab and the decent radar, as well as its wieght.

Hehe lucky guess...

If that's how you play it, then I think you're doing well...
Check my AC in the Ettin Design challenge, you'll see that I use that use it the same you do with yours...
Mine has more defense though...
And AC's equipped with the Ettin is really hard to manage energywise...
Since it fires 2 shots, it consumes twice the energy...
So I think a Kongoh will work on this one for much faster energy recover...

Try looking for a lighter missile pack and combine it with RM or Gar...

no! the kongoh will burn this thing. it's an OB jouster.

anyway,

i worried about the durability of the 3 parts. namely, the eye, the ul, and the gazelle.
