Gonna defend myself, I didn’t look to closely at the Arbitrator. 25m3 for drones, isn’t gonna do a lot more then a Vexor with 125m3 alone. Then again, 25 extra bandwidth defeats the 50 of the Arbitrator if you use heavies
Vexor vs Arbitrator
Same drone bonus
25% dmg bonus guns vs 37.5 tracking disruption bonus
4 guns vs 2 guns or 3 missile launcher (variable damage at least)
4 vs 4 mids…same, except theoretically one would use a tracking disruptor as the ship is mostly intended for PVP.
Both can use drone mods, which invalidates the number of mid slot point I was bringing up except innate gun + drone bonus means links and turret modules in the mids to improve the Vexor is better then a useless tracking EWAR mod you won’t use in PVE. Yes, both can use drone mods…but Vexor gets better use out of those mids and can 4 hybrids vs 2 laser / 3 missile.
What I am saying? Its up to the OP, Arbitrator works but Vexor is the better choice for PVE (and reworded, “25 capacity more on the Arbitrator; not the Vexor which is 25 more bandwidth”). Vexor does more damage, means faster completion, and more missions over the Arbitrator. Take to long with the Arby on the missions and your gonna burn your self out from boredom, Vexor does it a bit faster.
Arbitrator does have that super sexy hull though, Vexor is just a green jockstrap.
As for the Omen/Maller, I checked the hanger in my main and admit I was wrong. I have some rigged ships I don’t use anymore but stripped for mods in case I find a use for them again some day (I got so many ships its not funny), wasn’t paying attention and swapped the names. Maller is better choice between those 2, +resist and damage bonus means you can fit an extra damage mod in the low if you want for level 2 instead of upping your resists a bit if you needed it (Maller is basically a free Adaptive Nano resist mod). I am not a huge fan of capacitor reduction unless its a T2 ship, played mostly Minmatar ships so any +Rate +DMG +Opt +Falloff is what I am mostly used to (I know Minmatar don’t use cap eating guns, but -cap use reduction is the least useful bonus except in the long run yet PVP is short or PVE your gonna be mostly stable anyway).
