[I’m going to humbly ask that if you haven’t run the Burner Ashimmu mission at least 5-10 times in the past year or so to refrain from offering what may be antiquated and potentially dangerous advice.]
Ever since the Orthrus nerf, Anize’s fit hasn’t been possible (that I know of.)
I’m wary of the Gila for reasons stated here: Burner Ashimmu fits
I’m currently trying the cheap Cerb fit mentioned there, but it seems like I’m noticing these things:
- Even with max skills and missile implants, it takes almost a full load from the rlml just to take down ONE sentinel
- I feel like if I wait too long to deploy drones, the DPS really starts to chew through me faster than comfortable, even with the XLSB on overheat. This is regardless of whether I initially turn and run away, or if I select ‘orbit at 13km’ right away on the ashimu.
- Without a tractor beam, seems like getting to the wrecks takes a ton of time. Not sure with the drop rate if it’s worth it.
How are y’all flying the Ashimmu these days to give yourselves a comfortable margin of safety and a reasonable return on your time? Out of curiosity, do any of you burner / blitzing regulars skip Blood Base now? Is the bling version of the cerb fit in that guide pretty much required these days? (I ran the cheap version, but it was a little too close for comfort.)
Would love to hear thoughts from Chainsaw Plankton and company. (How do you tag someone in these forums anyways?)
