Best setup for l4

nothing on the rokh was touched as far as i can see… scorpion was touched. but i don’t believe the rokh was… Rook was messed with .

I only trained in the Rokh for bombing. not really turrets.

Why don’t you just fly what you have the most fun flying with? There are many good ships out there that can do the job just fine and if you must you can fly more than one ship at the same time.
If you wanna fly a loki and a tengu, fly a loki and a tengu, as simple as that.

Just for sake of it, I did level 4 missions in a Harpy for a while, just because I could. Success is what you define it should be.

No problem mate ^^

afaik nothing, and that alone makes it a bad choice, meh damage

best should still be burner blitzing, so mostly frigs/cruisers + a mach or two

Cruise Raven can do Angel’s Bonus with the right setup, always has been able too. It costs a bit more and you can always try flying it without being cap stable. “Permatank” is the best way to kill missioning speed.

I generally use heavy assult cruisers, and a rattlesnake for doing level 4 missions. I have 3 of the 4 main factions to level 5 cruiser. Ishtar probably the easiest to use out of all of them. Looking for a change up, try a T2 frig. Probably wouldn’t use the frig vs missles, but fun up against the right targets.

Thx.

Dont have three box running, Cant really make the bling, and still not convinced to train T2 cruise missile. Tho i get the concept so i made my own quick fix on two of my toon with lots of range scripted missile guidance, T1 arbalest, and compact stuff.

220 km reach auto targeting lazy machine of raining death. Just under 600mills each. Third box are being trained and incoming in a near future.

For maxed laziness, i have some stuff in mind. Help me test them for the sake of Convenience.

launch heavy drones as soon as you landed on grid, before anything lock you, then MJD. So it wont be like warden that wont automatically attack anything that gets in the drone range.

Medium drone might works. Not bonused but you can bring five of them, moves faster, and better tracking. Use T1 drones since you can shrug off in case one of them gets destroyed or in those cases you left them all in space. Low dps in paper, but pyfa cant simulate the convenience level for lazy people like us.

Use SeBo and reload to normal missile to snipe some missions that have annoying NPC with long enough reach at me (or just decline that mission and use other toon to get another mission for advanced case of laziness). Use it in Apanake that have no gurista type of enemy.

Thx dude, the cat are saved.

I still dont have cat.

Do you really use a leshak for L4’s? Can you share your fit, how does it perform? I would be interested in trying it.

Use that for clear missions. MWD AutoMach for blitzing.

remove one BCU and one DDA, they may add only 15 DPS each.
damage control + sig amp is better.
also PX LSB is really not that good, the ratio hp/GJ is very bad. IIRC even a T2 is better.
finally, rigor 3 is useless. Use rigor T22+ flare, because the T2 rigor has same malus than T1 and the stacking penalty dos not help. actually even rigor T2*2+ CCC may be better.

they use the same GJ to boost and the pith x-type gives 94 hp more per boost. The Dread gurista/caldari navy version are the ones with worse efficiency.

This rattle was made to clear L4 sites as fast as possible. It has enough tank and cap life to clear each wave or pocket. Anything extra is wasted and detracts from site times, and therefore income.

LSB and P X-type LSB use the same cap, but the P X-type will boost 94 more HP per cycle. It will also cycle 0.8 seconds faster.

Rigor 3 could be swapped with Flare, but I prefer the Rigor because of pesky elite Angel frigates among others.

Please don’t EFT-warrior what my friend and I took time to perfect.

Kronos… There is no substitute. I can run circles around Rattlesnakes. Which isn’t to say Rattlesnakes are bad, but they are kind of a flying loot piñata (not to mention somewhat skill intensive).

With the Kronos you can get away with a really cheap 3-4 slot tank if so desired (RAH, Deadspace large armor rep and 1-2 resistant specific Deadspace energized membranes). It’s faster, more agile and has 100% damage application.

For anything requiring salvaging it’s definitely the ticket.

Until you Bastion. Plus you can’t apply to the entire grid without fitting 425s which gimps your DPS.

And Marauder V isn’t?

With what fit?

This post applied 100% damage to my intelligence.

I would love to salvage some of it back…

If there’s an actual question here I’d be happy to answer it.

There were 2.

  1. Do you consider training Marauder V not intensive?

  2. What fit are you using?

  1. Yes, but you don’t necessarily need Marauder V. You can get away with Marauder IV or even Marauder III.
  2. I’ve previously posted my fit, but basically 4x Neutron Blaster Cannons in pairs, 2 tractor beams, bastion, 500MN MWD, tracking computer, sensor booster, large cap battery, 3x mag stabs, RAH, large Deadspace X-type armor rep and a pair of Deadspace A-type energized membranes. Hybrid Burst Aerator and Hyperspacial in the rigs.

I’ve also run this with as thin as a 3-slot tank (RAH, DC, large armor rep) but I’ve found that a pair of energized membranes allow you to pretty much run any mission. You can drop the sensor booster or battery for another tracking computer, and this does gain you some range (although the stacking for Bastion does kick in).

The thing is really over-tanked but I like using the MWD a lot so the battery tends to replenish use.
