My main mission runner for L4s and the Minnie Epic Arc (Wildfire) has been an artillery fit Tempest (1400mm T2s) and it’ suited me well. I just recently gained access to the Gallente Epic Arc (Syndication) and have been reading up on the mission chain.
My Tempest is mainly fit to maintain range (MWD/MJD) and damage - at 130km+ I can pop most frigates, cruisers, and sentries within a couple volleys and can float just out of range of BS cruise missiles - I have a minimal armor buffer as well, but really, just enough to give me time to warp out if necessary. The only times I’ve really had any problem is in deadspace mission rooms that drop you right in the middle of the mob - and even in these instances I can usually pull enough distance with the MJD to stay out of my armor
From what I’ve read I think I should be able to complete Syndication…
For those of you who have run this mission arc - can you think of any pitfalls I might encounter?
A prime example would be getting dropped into a room where you get immediately scram’d (or are somehow prevented from pulling range) or particularly difficult ranged mobs that can hit beyond 150km.
