Hi I have been reading as much as I can about the Rattlesnake, how to fit it, what DPS to reassembly expect from it and the tank ect.
My question is about the tank, whilst reading on the internet I have come across the opinion that passive tanks are no longer recommended as opposed to an active tank. They don’t tank as much and only have a peek output for the first 25% of the shields capacity.
My experience tells me otherwise, I enjoy using a passive tank and have no difficulty tanking damage during high security level four missions. I have the philosophy that higher DPS means I can take a reduced tank and so far this has worked out for me.
What I would like to know is what is the current community’s opinion on the topic of passive vs active tanks with regards to the Rattlesnake? Am I a dinosaur for still using a passive tank or a sheep following the herd or am I leading the herd?
