Trying to get an idea of a ship fit for an orca to act as mobile base for me, unless there is another ship better for the job. I’ll be multi-boxing 4 accounts. Any suggestions? This has probably been done or asked before. I’m a returning player.
it can be done - you’ll be limited to Class 2 and higher. Make sure to fit a cloak and stay cloaked on a deep safe at all times unless you need to access the Orca and have made sure that D Scan is clear. When you log out, make sure D is clear and use log out securely while mashing D - if you see combat probes and sth gets close, break the logoff securely sequence and cloak up again.
If you move, scout ahead…
Is there any reason why you per se want to use an orca as base? For the cost of that orca you could probably also anchor a raitaru, this frees up one of your accounts and is a lot safer.
I’ve been thinking of doing the same in the very near future
You can easily move out to another hole.
You don’t have to wait 7 days to unanchor the cita and move out
And you can uses a small pos as a hutt too
Plus it’s can be a funny and challenging experience
If you want to stick with only high class you can use a Carrier or a dread
Cloak, ECM drones and a burst jammer just incase. Could fit remote reps if your combat pilots goes into hull/armor he can be repaired.
It’s not truly mobile. It takes 7 days to unanchor a cita. I don’t want to wait that long.
I’ve also thought about using a small POS. Didn’t think about using a carrier or dread though. Maybe use both an orca and another capital for ratting. Thanks for the idea.
Thanks for the advice. Any idea on a ship fit though? One that’s been through trial by fire?
Thanks for the idea.
I’d say :
Astero for scanning and doing data/relic and hunting explorer
venture for gas huffing
Couple of T3C with multiple refit for pve/pvp
and regarding the orca :
med repairer (hull/armor) in high, cloak, probes,
Med : 500mn MWD, burst jammer
Rigs : hyperspatial
If you carry out with this and don’t mind, consider writing a blog about your experience and adventures, even if delayed by a month or such so people can’t use it as an intel tool against you. Would be interested to read how it goes with this nomadic lifestyle.
I used to use one as part of my WH pvp team. The orca would generally be there watching the hole I was camping, but on the hs side to watch the incoming hole. I had a small selection of ships in it for different situations, plus a lot of refits.
I did occassionally bring it into the hole, and even killed a few surprised explorers right on the hs with a sebo fit. If I was still WHing I would go with a pos or orca. Citadels and other structures have too much liability.
Haha, not a bad idea. I just might. Might be epic story of me getting blown up lol.
I was thinking the same thing.
So you would armor tank the orca?
Hull tank it (on mine there is just a reactor control unit and a damage control)
But to be honest if you’re caught you’ll die
Hahaha, that’s very true lol.
many have done this, when I was in an old WH corp (one of the first) and I got board I packed up all 4 toons, orcha, small poss with fuel and straunt, 2 brutix navies, scout ships, , 3-4 ventures (no more off grid links tho), and would ninja mine C5 and C6s super gas before and after server reset, you map it all out, partk the orcha in the small poss and mine till the sleepers spawn then do it again at server reset. back then I would get every thing in a day and a half, keep moving when needed, and then hit HS and off load a few bill in gas, or I would take it back to the C6 this is allot of work lol and then process it.
Can u even hold ships that aren’t industrials? not sure because the rorqual can’t?
Yep you can
I had one gila, one astero, one legion on saber and one venture
