Marauders - Fittings for Maximum Damage Application

This is awesome! Thank you for all the effort you’ve put in! Hope to see the Vargur analysis soon.

IMO it’s underwhelming. You look at an activity, and you ask if the vargur is a good choice. In most cases, it’s just worse than another marauder.

WRT AC, Its efficiency range should be around 25-100km for frigates and 10-35km for bigger ships. you can swap to barrage but then you are damage locked (so a bit less DPS depending on the rat) and many rats (especially guristas BS) will stay on the edge of efficiency.
Basically you need a falloff rig and a TC to make it acceptable. It’s still good, but compared to the 50 base range of torp golem it’s lacking vs big targets, and golem will one shot small target as much as vargur, and have more DPS on closer range (assuming it can paint the target). It’s better than golem vs lots of small target though because delayed golem DPS (torpedo are soo slow)

I personally love my vargur, and find it much more fun to fly than the golem. Been waiting to see the vargur post.

Arriving this weekend, along with a comparison between them all. Will shoot a reminder when it’s up for certain though. Admittedly the vargur does need some love, and just prior to the marauder update I thought it was going to be the Paladin…

Vargur is going to come so far behind! With 800s - max is 2.5k with Hail … sadly, artillery is in the ‘meh’ category.

Bastion on and its rather pathetic tbh. Me and my mate in his Golem - laughable - ‘you do the small stuff’ while he nukes all.

have you seen the paladin??? at least you can change damage types… my leshak actually does more dps when spooled up…

with the tank of a cruiser, I guess. And the speed of a triple bulkhead freighter with bad rolls…

nope… it tanks hard af… it tanks and does all lvl 4 missions with ease… my paladin can and does out tank it.

dont forget… it takes a while to spool up and thats where it is not nearly as good as a marauder…

Did you read anything above my post?

Vargur - decent damage if at 20k or so and below with 800s. Fine for Angel rats, but the typical 50k ones its peck peck peck. Artillery is so ponderously slow.

Damage type choice? Meh - its still in the cruiser level DPS at 30k and above with 800s. Lets see what results appear here. I have a Paladin, Golem, Vargur and Kronos. Paladin and Golem by far the best.

Its about marauders - so I could post a great … rupture fit with 100mn … but you seem to have missed the point.

Paladin ugly child ? I think she is quite sexy maybe it’s just an Amar thing .
