This is my second PVPQuest thread! The rifter one went well enough and now it is time to move onto the slasher.
Soon to come after a few more kills and like 5 hours of editing.
More Notes to Pilots I’ve Faced
Thanks for all the good fights as always. The slasher has been a fun experience so far and has a bit of flexibility in terms of fitting styles. Looking forward to the journey. As always, I’m up for a duel, so come find me in Tama.
Ship Choice: Slasher
Having experienced what the rifter was all about, the slasher was an interesting transition into more control typically at the cost of ehp. So far I’ve dabbled with two fits, each having their own niche. I would say the slasher is quite strong so far given it’s agility and damage (when set up to facetank). I still think I enjoy the plated rifter when scram kiting moreso (given its endurance).
The first fit is the paper thin TD slasher. It does relatively poor damage, has basically no tank, but does handily impact turret users. I’ve been somewhat successful and will continue to test as my TD skills improve (over several days). Thus far results have been mixed, and fights have had to be rather selective. Drones and missiles shred this thing as well.
The second fit I love a whole bunch more. This fit is a MSE build with scram kite and almost 200 dps. The mixed guns are due to my skills catching up via AWU V and rigging. Often this fit sits and facetanks/facemelts on the novice button. Reasonably good success with it so far, and it is pretty fun if a bit pricier for a t1 frigate.
Onward to the kills!
