Blood Raider Covenant

From Goonwiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Blood Raider Covenant is a NPC pirate alliance operating in Delve and Amarr space. They fly Amarr ships, and therefore use lasers and an armor tank. Bloods give out Talisman implants, which decrease the duration of energy emission systems, if you run their Blood Raider Missions.


Damage Output

They deal 50% thermal and 50% EM damage.

Suggested Hardeners

Slots Armor Shield
2 EM, Therm EM, Therm
3 EM, 2xTherm 2xEM, Therm
4 2xEM, 2xTherm 2xEM, 2xTherm


Blood Raiders are weak against EM and thermal damage.

Perfect match, use whatever you want
EMP (objectively, EMP does more damage against all blood rats than Phased Plasma, regardless of the below note)
Phased Plasma (seems to work better for me in artillery)
Gremlin Rockets
Sabretooth Light (Standard/Assault)
Thunderbolt Heavy
Torrent Heavy Assault
Paradise Cruise
Mjolnir Torpedoes
Hobgoblin Light
Hammerhead Medium
Ogre Heavy

(Thermal drones are a better bet than EM drones because their damage mod is higher; this makes up for the slightly higher thermal resists)


Range: This is what the rats will try to get to and orbit.

EM/TRM: Percentage of Damage per second from turrets for each damage type. Blood Raiders do only EM and Thermal damage

No Blood Raiders ships fire missiles. Battleships fire defender missiles.

Resistance percentages are the same for shields and armor on blood ships and are listed EM / Explosive / Kinetic /Thermal in that order.

Nossing & EW Battleships

Elder Blood Priests, Elder Blood Revenants, and Elder Blood Sages are Cruiser sized rats which have Neuts which will hit out to almost 40km and brutally sodomize your cap. Elder Blood Arch Templars are short range NOS cruisers.

Several of the smaller blood ships and one of the battleships also use Tracking Disrupters which can rape your DPS.
