I’ve been having a lot of fun with a kiting Corax. I’m able to complete Combat Sites (Pirate Dens) and level 2 missions. It goes a little slow at times, but as long as I keep 40-45 k off of rats, I can pick them all off with light missiles.
I was thinking that I could get a caracal and graduate to level 3 missions and higher level combat sites. Am I gaining anything going from 7 light missile launchers to 5 rapid Lights (T1 currently)? Will kiting continue to work well or will I start facing ships that can match my range? Are there more potent weapons (Caldari) that can give me the same kind of range? General thoughts?
Eventually when I have a handful of replacement ships I want to move to NPC null (roughly 2 weeks from now) for pirate missions and arcs. I’m looking at adapting the kiting fit to range and melt anything that tries to tackle me (and GTFO if a gang comes in). Will a kite fit handle itself for missions OK if I’m paying close attention to local and spamming DScan? I know I can wait for a T2 whatever, but I kind of want the challenge of getting out there with a bare bones set of skills trained.
