Greetings, I am busy in the Exploration career and am looking for recommendations on drones.
1 - I am generally running data/relic in 0.6, limited jumps into WH’s till my experience and expertise improves. When I get attacked I generally freeze up, panic and die miserably, just putting that out there.
2 - I am using Hornet EC-300 set to aggressive
3 - I have died, quickly due to not understanding the various relic sites, that issue has been solved using Uni-Wiki. Lesson learned.
4 - I have been killed by NPC and it seemed my drones were swept aside easily. This may also have been a problem with me as PVP is not my skill and I am poor at targeting.
I would like drones that will protect me when attacked with minimal to zero input from myself, similar to drones in High Sec Mining. These set to agressive will jump on NPC when they get in range.
I would like drones that will at the least last long enough to allow escape, I fly an Astero.
I would like drones that will provide this in WH space whether it’s NPC’s or other players.
Would sentry drones work for me.
I wold like to run some of the combat sites but that is a real stretch for me.
Cost effective would be a bonus, though you can say the price of losing my Astero vrs drone cost needs to be considered. But ISK is always a factor.
I have the necessary skills for pretty much all drones, amplification, scanning etc. I don’t have a slot for amplification in my current fit.
I have the skills to use basically all drones, do not have any slots for amplification.
I have tried to include as much information as possible here, I have seen other posts that limit the recommendations due to not enough information.
