High sec lvl4 mission ship advice

Indeed, or that guy is trolling or doesn’t have a clue, evepraisal shows listing priced in jita now
4.01 Billion estimated sell value 3.31 Billion estimated buy value… gank magnet indeed.

My current Golem cost at today’s market price 2.21 Billion.

Anyway, in the end of the day in my opinion, a Marauder always will attract gankers attention, even if they don’t make any “profit” at all from killing it.

I’m pretty sure my barghest fit costs less than the kronos hull alone. you really don’t need to go full deadspace mids.

Okay sure, this fit is pretty specialized, but you could pretty easily swap the rigs to application and swap the guidance comps for a bit more tank or cap if you want, and/or go with the old school 6 mids raven fit. And should probably use a few faction BCUs but that’s a pretty minor detail. Then maybe a faction 500mn MWD for the lower cap penalty.

I guess my point was I can run a T2 Marauder fit for less than half the cost of this blinged Barghest fit, and probably complete missions in less time (since I have a higher warp speed and prop mod). There’s also the salvaging bonus.

Which isn’t to say the fit is bad. It just seems guaranteed to attract the wrong kind of attention at some point in the not too distant future.

Depends on your skills/play-style.

If you like to brawl and have great tank skills then Yes, Rattlesnake.

If you prefer more passive play then a sentry Domi can be almost as efficient speed-wise and for hundreds of millions less. Land at 100km out, drop warden II’s, blap blap blap… when they start hitting you MJD out another 100km. rinse and repeat. Cheap, effective, consistent.


(lilrchronos) #26

Would you be willing to share this fit?

Since he hasn’t posted anything yet, this is the Kronos I use for running missions:

I don’t always go into Bastion Mode, but occasionally “run wild” by NOSing other battleships, holding them down with the Grappler and killing them with Void L up close and personal at about 1500 DPS (before implants).


(Arthur Aihaken) #28

I’ve temporarily switched to a Leshak for missions.


(Magnus Witchspace) #29

I love my Golem. That is all.


(elitatwo) #30

@Arthur_Aihaken, after some weeks, how does the Leshak feel? Is it worth it?

Another option is the Amarr Arma.

I’ve been using this for ages. Armament wise you can use anything due to 5/5 turret/launcher setup, and it’s drone capacity is right up there, you can use 2x geckos or 5 heavy/sentry drones due to its 125mb/s bandwidth.

Personally if have it armour tanked, armed with 5 rapid heavy launchers and 2 drone links, carry a mix of drones as you can with the drone capacity (currently have 5 light, 5 med, 5 heavy, 5 sentry and a mix of ECM and salvage drones. Did used to use 2 geckos with an tp900, but found augmented heavy drones did more damage and we’re faster, but does require you to have high drone skills unlike the geckos.

I’ve solo lvl storyline missions with this ship, and never gone below 50% armour hp.

The cool thing is with this ship is the ability to use any weapon system, it even had instead of the links mounted 2 turrets for antifrigate use.

Should add fit has a huge cargo capacity for ammo and mission loot.

Point is there are always other options.


(Saori Ishida) #33

Could you list the fit?


(dewk) #34

For the Arma fit?


(Saori Ishida) #35

Yes please


(Saori Ishida) #36

What is your passive shield regen per second? Also, you don’t need a prop mod? I just set up my Gila very similar to this but dropped a AIF for a 10mn AB and used the low shield mod instead of the DC2. The one that bumps shield regen. I’m sitting at 124 regen/sec and 750ish dps. I have not tried a lvl 4 but hope to tonight. Thanks!


(dewk) #37

Ok. Put it up soon.


(Sienna Khalifa) #38

seeing that this is an advice thread. i’ve been wanting to ask the following. why people fit MWD on Battleships for L4s? does the speed bonus offfset the bloom in signature or something? all the other ships use AB for missions, is the 100MN AB that bad in comparison?


(Felicitas Minbar) #39

It depends.

I always preferred afterburners over microwarpdrives.

Nothing beats a afterburner plus micro jump drive dual prop fitting.


(Buoytender Bob) #40

Some missions have gates that are 50+ km apart and they want to speed up their mission completion times. A Snake moves like a wounded oil tanker without a mwd on those types of missions.
