Ship for 3/10; 4/10 escalations

Hi, guys. I’ve been using gila for 4/10 escalations but i think that it’s too expensive for 4/10 and i was doing it so long.
So can you tell what ship should i use for 3/10 or 4/10 escalations?

which faction ?

The gila is good in escalations that have less rats with good EHP.
it’s typically bad when rats are small frigates spread over the rooms

it’s thus pretty bad for most ded3s. It’s however quite good for most ded4s.

Any cruiser will do them. T3D also works well. I was having lot of success with cheap algos/draggon in galente space.

Tactical Destroyers smash 3/10s. I use a hecate, or a worm.

I use an Orthrus with rapid lights and autotargeting missiles. Not for 4/10’s but for the 3/10’s it makes real quick work of them. Incredibly fast anoms in highsec too. Stick to Serpentis imo or come back later with a Gila or better for those 4 and 5/10’s you find.

Jackdaw.

I’ll try Algos.

I don’t have Omega :confused:

Use a Wormy :bug:

Faction Cruisers my friend. Orthrus and Gila are outstanding. I’d use the Orthrus for all your 3/10’s and finding any escalations in Serpentis and Guristas space. Run the 4/10’s in your Gila. You can also put the Rapid Light Missile Launchers on your Gila with autotargeting missiles but the Orthrus just does it better (fastest).

also the orthrus has a bonus to missile speed which means less ammo wasted per salvo.

Two fits, just in case you or people reading don’t have the skillpoints are less or you’re an alpha maybe.

  • Don’t group your weapons, you will want to count a second or two between activating them.
  • You’ll need aggro from the rats, so prioritize running a Refuge first or send your drones at the rats to begin.
  • Once you have it, you can warp to the rest of the anomalies and just activate your launchers for fast site clearing.
  • Edit - once you leave system you’ll have to get aggro again.

Stick to Hideaways and Refuges with the Orthrus in my experience. Switch to Gila for 4 and 5/10’s. You can put Rapid Lights on your Gila with these missiles but you’ll see how this is just so much better.
