Freelancer DUR?

72 posts in this topic

So I plan on getting the Freelancer DUR soon, I am just in love with it , from the cargo door and rear turret all the way to the funny looking balls on the nose. I love what it represents... a no nonsense explorer ship with larger fuel tanks upgraded jump drive better scanners it j ist makes me drool lol...what do you gu us think of it?

The Duration should be a good ship. I'll withhold full review until we can see how it performs in AC. Until some more features of the game go live we don't know how fuel, jumping, sensor strength etc all play in to making an explorer ship a 'good' ship. But since its being billed as a solo/small crew explorer then I expect it to live up to its reputation.

I agree with you completely, hopefully it lives up to RSI.com's description. But if not there will always be in game upgrades :)

It's just going to be a bigger exploration ship, In terms of the amount of cargo it can carry. I do like the freelancer dur, considering buying one myself!

I have a DUR myself, though am now regretting not getting the MAX as I plan on focusing on trade (can't melt it down because it has my alpha access). The DUR does look to be a great ship though so I'm not entirely upset with the decision and as I don't currently have a dedicated explorer the DUR should be fine until I can get my hands on a Hull (A-D).

also upgraded mine to the DUR, maybe in the PU I change it to the military variant.

 

DUR looks much better for me then the normal Freelancer :)

You very well might have something like that. It's a viable option sticking the parts from each onto the max. They did say the freelancer was modular in that regard, correct?

I have the DUR, I'm going to use it as my solo playing ship to go exploring but I also considered using it as a long distance hauler. The cargo-space isn't that bad compared to the original Freelancer (148 units compared to 168 units), considered the tradeoff for expanded fule-tanks, enhanced jump drive, long range scanners and a shield upgrade. Stats may change though. I just have to get more precious cargo to make the trip worthwhile. I also considered that I won’t have that much cash to start with so I might not be able to fill the cargo space anyway.

 

I just lover the inside of the Freelancer, it feels so "used" compared to other ships that are way to clean in my opinion. Im going to fill my cockpit with bobbleheads and shit to really make me feel at home =D.

I am on the fence on this one guys. I own the Aquila for exploring, but you guys raise interesting points. I can use the DUR for long range hauls with reduce signature and scanners to avoid enemies. Is it worth owning two explorer ships?

Going to buy a DUR this anniversary sale. Looks like a cool ship and you can enjoy playing with a friend.

Also my first exploration ship and the cargo capacity for rare goods will make me feel a han solo in PU.

Though in the desc it says 25% reduced cargo size, so these numbers seem like they could easily change, I do agree that it's a small loss for the cool upgrades :)  And I just sold off my Connie, so I'm thinking I could use a small bit of the funds I got from that to upgrade my base Lancer.

Would you say upgrading from a 315p to a freelancer DUR is a good deal. Money wise?.

It really depends, I think the 300i will be good just because it's a starter ship so you can get used to game mechanics, if you feel confident enough that you won't make expensive mistakes early game then go for the DUR as it's just an overall better equipped ship for the job

I think the DUR will be one of the best solo exploration ships all around.  It's pretty well armed, has beds (to log out in space) and it's fairly small, able to get through smaller jump points.
