Ruthless, methodical, merciless, unyielding - these are the hallmarks of the Gropho, one of the largest expressions of the Pelistal Empire’s strength. Although not the ultimate power in the Pelistal Empire, no Nian - Theolodican or Nuimqol - dismisses the power of the Gropho’s fusillades. Even the Gropho’s masters recognize the power of their subjects, and are mindful of it, as a kennel owner is of its most dangerous dog.

Conventional usage

Long range

Conventionally, gropho is being used as longrange artillery units. Powerfull reactor and number of headslots allows pilot to fit enough range extenders to reach optimal range of 800m, or even more. To utilise accumulator and increase vitality, long ranged gropho is usually fitted with a shield. This modification is extremelly fragile to focused fire, thats why it playing a role of long ranged support of constantly los semi-independent fire.

Short range

Short ranged modifications allows pilot to play a role of frontline tank. Native shield bonus, extra-engeneering slot, and compact missiles makes gropho very durable frontline assault bot. The usage of this modification is very depends on situation: nuimquol active-repair mech can simply outmanuer and ignore closeranged gropho, but artemis pilot should be very carefull against this modification.


Grophos are ideal for PvE: given that nian NPCs have not perfect AI, gropho can outmaneuer them, and use a range to kill them all one by one. The most usable fit would be a damage tunnings and repair complex, without a shield.
