I am recently back to eve and I would need an advice for a lvl4 rattle.
Just to clarify, this toon will be used exclusively for PVE, lvl4 missions only. I am asking since I have to decide which skills to train.
With another toon (sold) I had a rattle fitted with cruise missiles which where quite effective, now I am seeing some fittings with Rapid Heavy missile launchers so I decided to test a fitting on EveHQ and Pyfa.
The DPS stats were quite surprising in favor of the RHML even when reload time was considered.
Through the Pyfa graph I tested the effectivness of the two fittings and as expected the RHML are more effective vs medium targets as well.
I googled a bit about the argument and I found this:
- the downside of the RHML is the range
- the second downside is the reload time (which DPS wise seems to not count that much, at least according to pyfa)
Now, considering the rattle uses drones as well for far targets, and if I recall correctly the NPC on every missions are around 60Km and below, wouldn’t be better to switch to the RHML?
Do you have any RL experience? Am I missing something? Or something has changed trough the expansions?
Thank you for your advice
