The Wormhole Blitz Drive is a flagship utility which can be equipped on the Javelin Flagship with all three tiers of it being reusable items being available in Devastation. It is of VEGA Corporation design and has a special shield bypass bonus after a successful jump.
It has the functionality to warp inside a sector, from any location to any destination, carrying along a maximum of four escorts no matter the level, it imbues its escorts with shield penetration effects for a short time after jumping.This boost however will actually have at max duration of 5 seconds in combat making it quite easily replaced by the better Wormhole Drive Type-E.
Strategy and SetupEdit
Few advantages come with the Blitz drive as it is easily replaced by the Wormhole Drive Type-E but like every jump drive it is an amazing farming tool.The ability to warp across the sector is very useful for both farming and PvP as you can get to another fleet in less then 7 seconds.
However, the Blitz drive's ability to give shield bypass after a jump is almost completely worthless as by the time the round starts it would already be over.In the best case scenario with a lv III Blitz drive and a immediate attack after a jump you have to wait 15 seconds for setup leaving 5 seconds left of the bypass but by the time the first hit lands it will already be gone.
On top of that, just like other drives it has a EXTREMELY long build and repair making it devastating to have destroyed as you will have at least 12 hours of repair.It also has a long build time making it hard to swap drives in periods of time.
To add insult to injury, they are limited in number. Unlike blueprints, players cannot equip them limitless on their ships, the number they can equip depends on the amount of Blitz drive items they have.They are also incredibly hard to get as the you can only have 1 of each level and the event fleets in Devastation were rather hard on higher levels.
It also requires a alliance and a captains permit to use.This will often make these hulls useless if you have no alliance or are in bigger ones which cant support that many permits.Making it hard to manage with on bigger players.
- It is the first operation to offer shield bypass
- In most cases the shield bypass will be over by the time the battle starts as there is a 15 second setup time and a time it takes for the enemy to attack.
- The Wormhole Blitz drive is the first drive to feature no tag (Ex:-0 or -E)
