Hey guys, newbro there, is it possible to safely rat c3 combat sites with this praxis fit?

Caldari Navy Wasp x9

Scourge Heavy Missile x4000

Caldari Navy Scourge Cruise Missile x4138

‘Arbalest’ Rapid Heavy Missile Launcher I x6 (planning to bring both cruise and RHM launchers w/ depot to switch depending on situation)

The whole idea was about creating fit (any replacement advices are welcome) capable of doing c3 on a budget (total fit cost is ~231 mil) so i can afford to lose 3-4 ships because im completely new to wormholes and im solo without corp. With my current skills i have total 612 dps with cruise launchers and 629 with RHML, 69 all resists, 258 shield/sec (without any implants or boosters), 7.5k shield pool and cap stability with everything up at 57% with 36.7 capregen/sec to outsustain neut spawns. Im also thinking about swapping out one invul for painter/web. Is it worth it? And im also not sure about drones, are wasps good for c3 ratting?

Also i would be very thankful for any kind of c3 ratting strategy/target priority list/other tips and tricks

Any advices are very welcome!

P.S I`m sitting at 4.5 mil SP and i cant use t2 launchers, rockets and drones yet

P.S 2 I`ve also heard about similar fit based on lasers but thats definitely bad option for me because i have no laser skills at all

You can run class 3 anomalies in a heavy missiles Drake which only cost 190 million less than this praxis does and she can be insured.

Only use scourge missiles for a Drake. A battleship just makes for a way too nice gank target and you can have a probe launcher on a Drake, though not a bonused one.

If you’re able to maintain eyes on the incoming WHs and are 99% sure there isn’t anyone else in system with you, yes it should be possible to safely rat C3 combat sites.

I’d suggest starting out here: https://eve-survival.org/wikka.php?wakka=WormholeSpaceClass3
Maybe even consider dropping down to C2 sites to start with, but eve survival is great for listing triggers and make-up of the ships you’ll be facing in each site.

I’d would agree with elitatwo and also suggest a Drake fit for running the sites (I posted a fit here, drop down to Meta IV mods until you can use T2), so that when someone decloaks on top of you tis better the ship costs as little as possible… ECM drones might enable you to get away… maybe.

They still work after ECM nerf?

They do, the ECM changes didn’t impact drones nearly as much as it did the ships dedicated to using it, but it (ECM) is still reliant on rng to get a successful jam and you need to be aligned & ready to warp when that jam lands (assuming you’re not bubbled by an interdictor / there’s only one ship preventing your warp), meaning ecm drones as a gtfo option are still a bit hit & miss… so like everything with Eve, it depends! :slight_smile:
