Need Drake build


(Krima Sumyungi) #1

Something that can handle L3/L4, but also withstand the occasional gank attempt, even if it just gives enough time to cut and run.

well bcs arent ideal for level 4s but i guess something like this could work
use the right hardeners and pulse mwd to get in range of enemies

Yeah, I figure if it can even do L4’s it’d be slow going, but slow is better than not at all! hehe

Edit: Doh! Thank you for the build!

actually posted the wrong fit it was supposed to be hams lol
its exactly the same just with hams instead of hms just wanted to see what damage hms would get
but would recommend using hams with the mwd but whichever you prefer

I use the same build, but with :

  • 1 navy power relay and one more ballistic. more punch
  • t2 or even better faction LSE (CN)
  • 10mn AB , always active for speed tank
  • harmonizing charges because better ehp/s
  • missile guidance computer II, precision script in cargo if I get close to target
  • invul +1 dedicated hardener for tank.

total is 250M for 250 dps on missiles, range 70km

Hi,

I am a returning player & I have a similar question on this topic. My plan is to do L3’s to earn enough cash to get myself restarted in the game. On another character I am in the process of manufacturing my drake because I am so limited on funds & I have about 50 million isk on hand to use for this budget project. So I am looking for any suggestions that would assist me in doing just that. Also what kind of missile ammo should I be using for Caldari space?

I apologize to the OP for in a way borrowing thier thread, but the system will not allow me to create a new one since this is the first time I have used Eve’s forums to post anything. Thank you all for reading this!

The typical passive tank Drake fits posted above are effective with tech2 modules, so can easily be fitted on a budget with no need for faction mods. With regard to ammo, that depends on your Battlecruiser skill. The Drake has a bonus to kinetic missile damage, so if your BC skill is 4 or higher, it makes sense to simply use Scourge missiles on everything. If you have tech2 launchers, bring along some Fury missiles for taking out battleships, as without them your dps will be somewhat marginal. For everything else, standard Scourges are fine.

Thanks! I just hope the Drake will have some of the same feel like the Gila I got used to using in null.
