I was trying to make a Myrmidon fit for wormhole ratting. Considering my main gig for now is to hack relic and data sites in wormhole, and that can be somewhat unreliable, I wanted to build a ship that could do all sites from C1-C3.
Let’s assume for the sake of argument that I’m gonna get in wormholes I’m pretty sure are empty (i.e.: I’ve been inside for a while scanning all signatures, nobody appeared on D-Scan, citadels inside were empty and control towers had no force fields).
To see what kind of tank would my ship need to have in order to sustain the dps of the hardest site, I use this as reference: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17cNu8hxqJKqkkPnhDlIuJY-IT6ps7kTNCd3BEz0Bvqs/pubhtml#
If that is correct, it seems the hardest site is the Forgotten Frontier Recursive Depot, with up to 1406 dps.
Considering sleeper have neuts, my plan was to use a passive shield-tanked ship and projectile turrets. While the Myrmidon doesn’t have bonuses for that, it has 6 mids and 5 lows, which means it has room for a lot of extenders and power relays. Still, considering the Sleepers’ appetite for drones, I’m training up an alt to fly a Drake… and training myself to stomach the ugliness of that ship
Now, to see which was the target shield regeneration I had to aim for, I trusted this page: https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Shields#Passive_Shield_Tanking
From the graph of shield recharge rates at different shield percentages, it seems that at around 50% shield capacity my shield recharge rate should be double the nominal value.
My reasoning was then to aim for a EHP/s recharge rate of at least half the maximum dps I would face. In other words, above 703 ehp/s
After playing around in pyfa for a bit with alpha clone skillset (max rank 2 for compensation abilities, rank 4 for shield capacity bonus and 4 for recharge rate bonus) this is what I could get (please ignore dps, I still need to find the right guns, but it should be at least 300-350 dps)
As you can probably see, this fit is kind of expensive (130 millions without drones or ammo) compared to what I would need had all my skills been at 5. So before I start poking sleeper drones with a stick, I’d rather have some confirmation that my assumptions were valid.
So… here are my questions:
- Do you know if Rykki’s guide is still accurate?
- Do you know if I can trust the Uniwiki page on shield regeneration?
- Can I be positive the shield recharge rate displayed on Pyfa is the baseline one?
- Just to be on the safe side… do you know if I can test this fit on the test server?
