Serpentis Ratting - Faster


(Logan Katar) #1

So I am a ratter and I want to kill them faster. Easy as that. I had been using a Sentry Dominix to rat in but felt it was slow going and was hoping for something faster. So here are my two Ideas for “Faster” and somewhat inexpensive. If you see any improvements that are simple and significantly impactful, please let me know.

First is a Cerberus.

Medium Shield Booster II

Caldari Navy Hornet x3

Cap Stable with everything running. Pyfa shows 430 dps against Serpentis (my rats of choice currently).

Next is a Deimos.

Medium Armor Repairer II
Armor Thermal Hardener II

Tracking Computer II, Tracking Speed Script
10MN Afterburner II

Medium Hybrid Locus Coordinator II
Medium Hybrid Burst Aerator I

Caldari Navy Hornet x5

The Cerberus has much longer range (35km for me) vs the Deimos 4.5k Optimal and 5k falloff but the Deimos has 15% more DPS per Pyfa. So am I missing some trick to get the Cerberus better or is the Deimos the way to go or is there some other HAC I should consider (was not convinced the Ishtar was producing the same DPS but maybe I just built it wrong)

Thank you for your help. (and just to include an emoji - :parrotwave1:

You could try rails Proteus. With blitz fit.

rattlesnake i guess

Blasters range is too low really, sure it has more DPS but you will spend time traveling to each rat which lowers your really DPS, also if you are right in the middle of all of the rats then you take more damage /need more tank which means lower DPS again. The same fit would work with Rails, Just AB around the Rat ball at like 20km.

As for Faster, Super Carrier > Carrier > Vindi > Everything else.
