Dramiel For SoE

Ive heard that the Dramiel is a good choice to smash through the beginners SoE ark. Does anybody have any T2/cheap faction fits this PVE purpose? Thank you.

Something like that might work:

[Dramiel, SoE]
Counterbalanced Compact Gyrostabilizer
Gyrostabilizer II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

1MN Afterburner II
Small Cap Battery II
Small Shield Booster II
Adaptive Invulnerability Field II

200mm AutoCannon II, Hail S
[Empty High slot]
200mm AutoCannon II, Hail S

Small Capacitor Control Circuit II
Small Anti-EM Pump I
Small Processor Overclocking Unit I


Acolyte II x2
Hobgoblin II x2

Not tested and only put together in Pyfa within 5 minutes.
The speed of the Dramiel is really a plus since the SoE arc makes you warp quite a lot.

Dramiel is a fun ship and a fast way to do the SOE epic arc. I completed it last weekend with this fit:

Upgraded EM Ward Amplifier I

You don’t need the hyperspatial rig and can switch it for more tank. Likewise the deadspace AB is overkill but the Sariel’s Flames skin was worth every penny in my opinion!

you can use a cyna for faster better stronger.
Thanks to its increase tank, you can safely use 3 hyperspatial rigs to go faster than the dramiel.
very hard and expensive to push to 2s align, so 3s it is.
total cost is <200M
keep script range.
Also it has enough cargo to do the courrier mission easily.
if you wannabe safer, replace a gyro with a DCU II.

you have room for T2, so once you can, use T2 (except MWD) ; if you can afford, replace the LSE with eg rf. the auto targeting is here to give more target. you can also activate it when you are full lazy mode.

I m definitely going to give this a good run, I was wondering what your thoughts would be on a Hawk fit and have you used one for the SoE ark?

1 Like

Yes, I’ve used the Hawk - any assault frigate can coast through the ark. That character now flies a Worm but I still have a fit in pyfa:

[Hawk, Hawk fit]

Damage Control II
Crosslink Compact Ballistic Control System

Republic Fleet Medium Shield Extender
Limited Adaptive Invulnerability Field I
Domination EM Ward Amplifier
1MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner
Astro-Inertial Compact Missile Guidance Computer

Light Missile Launcher II, Scourge Fury Light Missile
Light Missile Launcher II, Scourge Fury Light Missile
Light Missile Launcher II, Scourge Fury Light Missile
Light Missile Launcher II, Scourge Fury Light Missile
[Empty High slot]

Small Processor Overclocking Unit II
Small Ancillary Current Router I

Edit: If you use the Dramiel - take some Hail ammo for the our man Dagen mission - it does a lot more damage than Barrage but very short range.

HI again,

I’m sorry i missed the part about you fly a worm! I am sure this would be a better option for my also. Would I use the same fit on a worm as the hawk for the SoE?

Worm produces more dps at longer range but it’s slower.

In my opinion, once you have good skills & implants, this arc is so easy that you dont even need a tank. All you want is the fastest ship possible, with an afterburner as a tank, and also a mwd to be even faster when you need. But i like to speedrun this. In fact i will try a bling version of this next time. 2-3h & its done.

Don’t forget to link the lossmail. :smiling_imp:

The main problem is that 200mm AC’s have bad tracking, especially with Hail ammo at high speeds. 150mm AC’s have much better Tracking speed.

I don’t see any benefit to dual prop with MWD. The ship is already fast enough just with an Afterburner. MWD isn’t really needed in the lv 1 SoE epic arc. It’s a drain on fitting resources and it increases your ship’s signature radius.

Instead of fitting 2x Small Shield Extender’s, fitting 1x Medium Shield Extender will do just fine. Also it’s a good idea to plug up the EM resistance hole in the shield.

Keeping sub 2s align time as well as increase EHP’s and Damage output, I came up with this fit:

Dramiel

High slots:
2x 150mm Autocannon II
1x Rocket Launcher II

Mid slots:
1x 1MN Afterburner II
1x Medium Shield Extender
1x Upgraded EM Ward Amplifier I
1x Tracking Computer II

Low slots:
1x Damage Control II
1x Inertial Stabilizers II
1x Republic Fleet Tracking Enhancer

Rig slots:
1x Small Polycarbon Engine Housing I
1x Small Low Friction Nozzle Joints I
1x Small Projectile Collision Accelerator I

Dronebay:
3x Hobgoblin II
1x Salvage Drone I

Scripts:
1x Tracking Speed
1x Optimal Range

Munitions:
Hail S
Barrage S
Republic Fleet Phased Plasma S
Inferno Rage Rockets

Usually run Republic Fleet Phased Plasma with Inferno Rage Rockets and Hobgoblin II Drones. Use Barrage for long distance snipe action and Hail for up-close brawling with large tough targets when needed.
