PVE Overkill Maybe? Scorpion Navy Issue Fit Teak request

My brother made an insanely expensive ship because he has more money than time LOL that being said it’s cap stable and he’s able to solo level 4 missions so far just fine (We’re still fairly inexperienced at the game, however so we don’t know the little tips and tricks) we played ages ago, but then were gone for many years so we’re a bit lost… this is what he made, it’s cap stable for him though, not for me so keep that in mind… LOL

What isn’t he taking into account / could be improved on

Hope your not posting on your ingame character becuase if so you have just made yourself gank targets.

You dont need all that bling, even if your not gankedit would take forever to make that ship pay for itself.

That is 110% going to get ganked and end up as a nice killmail well before it even comes close to paying for it self.

I would drop most of it to T2 keep one or two items to make not overly worth the risk to gank you i would just keep the lows and change the rest to T2.

level 4 missions are fairly easy and that ship is well overtanked for them and would not tank close to enough to avoid a gank attack.

Yeah it’s not mine :slight_smile: He already has all of it so it’s not about paying for itself LOL I told him hes asking for trouble though :stuck_out_tongue:

He understands he’s asking if there’s any way to optimize it better… He doesn’t care about the money he’ll just buy another one he says LOL

great fit, love the rapid heavies the obvious BEST choice for L4 missions.

what system are you missioning in again? asking for a friend

Better fit. More optimized. Less wastage. Swap hardeners for mission specific.

You can use what ever rigs/drones you wish. It is NOT cap stable so you need to learn to manage the cap you will be having to burst the XL shield booster.

Over all if you want to optimize it sell it buy a Rattlesnake.

Hi,

Addressing your question.

Things to ‘improve your fit’.

  1. Depending on skills you could drop the Flux Coil and go for a DC or PDS (which will add cap, shields and recharge)

  2. Put some Computer Guidance in the missing mid slot for more range
  3. Put a TP in the missing mid slot

To be fair though, as many others have commented, this is a very very expensive peice of kit to do what you want to do. I was running L4’s in a Raven for fun (well… thats a figure of speach) years ago and never died once and never got ganked. It was a T2 fit Raven… and it worked really well.

The biggest peice of advice I’ll give is that if you know how the missions work and can make a decisions between blitzing and running the whole mission you do not need a tank anywhere near this level…

Know the the mission and you’ll now you don’t need this bling. It’s the tank that makes this ‘really’ expensive and it’s the tank that you’d don’t really need.
