Hey, all. I’d put this in the PVE sub forum but I haven’t posted enough to leave the the New Citizen forum, I guess.
I know a lot of people rag on missions, but I actually like them. I plan on paying for my account for a good long time, so I’m not looking to grind for PLEX. What I do want is to have something to do that isn’t Super RNG dependent every time I log in. I enjoy exploration, but only occasionally when I feel like diving into null or WHs. In the meantime, I want to run missions, salvage and explore various industry/research options. But missions are sort of the bread and butter of that plan.
With social skills and a myrmidon, I got most of the way through Level3 missions no problem. Then I was able to skill into a Gila using a mostly tech1 passive shield fit. That made level 3s even more of a synch. And now I’m able to do level 4s but I’m really nervous that my Gila can’t handle it, though I hear all the time that Gilas are aces at level 4s. It can handle 4/4 DED sites without much trouble as long as I’m paying attention and not just diving straight into the middle of the enemies.
I’m at work on my phone, so I don’t know how to link the actual fit, but here’s a breakdown:
4x prototype arbalest RLML
10MN Afterburner II
EM shield gardener II
3x Large Shield extender II
Multi spectrum Shield Hardener II
Damage Control II
2X Drone Damage Amplifier
3x Medium Corp Defense Field Purger II
I’m not actually flying fully tech2 at the moment, but this is what I’m currently skilling into. I’m loathe to change out of the passive shield mode because those rigs were darn expensive. But I’m only getting 72 passive regeneration/second which I’m told is really bad. I’ll have level IV in both Gallente and Caldari cruiser skills soon enough.
Any help people can give me regarding the passive shield Gila and it’s ability to run level 4 missions would be incredibly appreciated. Thank you!
