DDD Is the light drone bunnie, you will be assigned all the light drones in the fleet and kill the frigate class Sansha. You’re number one target that you must kill first is the Niarja . The Niarja uses ECM & neuts so can cause havok with our logi so needs to be killed a.s.a.p.
The general rule of thumb for kill order is :-
Niarja > Tama > Schmaeel > Renyn > Eystur
Tama are another really important frigate to kill of fast. As they do 300 dps each so in large numbers they can be lethal.
The way drone mechanics works, is the last offensive modual you use, whether that be a gun, webifier or target painter, On an enemy, your drones will attack that target. So if you web and shoot one target and then web another with a second web. The drones with move over to the target that had the second web applied to it. As it was the last offensive modual used.
Pro tips: In HQ sites (40 person fleets) if you sit just of the person taking aggro you should be able to kill of the frigates much easier as they will be in web range. Also the kill order doesn’t matter as much just kill of all frigs as fast as you can (Niarja must always die first though if on grid).
What i mean by that is if two people are taking aggro and the frigates are split. Go to the closest person first and kill of all the frigates on them, then switch to the other group of frigates. As travel time for your own ship so you can apply your webs and travel time for the drones from one target to another is a big loss in dps and time sink.
Last thing you want to do is kill the Tama’s on one person then burn 40+ km to kill a couple of Tama’s on another person. Only to have to burn back to the original person, who is still 40+km away just to kill a couple of Schmeal. So just use your own common sense when it comes to kill order in HQ. Except for Niarja they must always die first
Special note: True creations research center is a special HQ site. In this site there is initially 2 Niarja that spawn. You need to kill them both A.S.A.P. one of the Niarja though will respawn every 45 seconds to a minute. Just behind and to the left of the sansha battletower that the full fleet shoots. You need to keep killing that Niarja as soon as it spawns. In between the spawns you also need to kill of any untagged Schmaeel class frigates.
