Thanks for the replies.
@Do_Little the link looks interesting, skimmed it will read his analysis properly some other time.
It’s fine that it’s for higher skilled toons just needed to know before spending too much time on it myself.
Off the top of my head with a cruiser I can perma-tank over 400 damage with less than 100 dps of my own or throw out something over 200 dps with considerably less perma-tank… so it looks like they’re probably out of my reach for now.
Can improve on that with a Gnosis of course but I just don’t feel like throwing that kind of ISK at the event right now.
So I’ll pass on this one I think
