Tengu still ok?

Hello,

I have been away from Eve for a while and just come back . Last time I was playing , I was training for a Tengu and now resumed the training.
Like the title says, is the Tengu still ok for level 4 missions ?

no … use smth else

Unfortunately, all the T3’s had a subsystem removed, so they’re no longer OP. It will still work, but probably isn’t the best option. Anyway, you might want to check out Hateless Gaming’s channel. He has a lot of videos about missioning, and should have more up to date ships and fits.

Thank you ! What I am interested is if it can still tank the missions. From what I remember , there wasn’t any level 4 mission that could cause trouble for a Tengu. I know the DPS might not be fantastic , but not all of us want the best ISK/h and just want to enjoy a ship for what it is.

What would you recommend ?

Well, some missions might get a little hairy depending on your fit and piloting, but it should be able to handle level 4’s no problem. I think the main problem with it is, as you pointed out, that the DPS is a little underwhelming.

you can make it work, but it’s not great.

ideally for missiles a cruise missile battleship, Also torps just got a recent buff so can make a few ships work well there. Golem and barghest have the best natural bonuses to help out. but those are some expensive options.

AC mach is still a great choice for turrets

The Tengu works just fine. A shield one with a largw shield booster, a faction or blue shield boost amplifier, one or two multisoectrum shield hardeners, a battery, a DCU II and an afterburner will have no problems. And you can do that while still having a decent 600 DPS.

The most basic/cheap tengu these days should be the one with two pithum c-types for shield booster. While meant for DEDs, HAMs still get you close to 1k dps, or above with amp node subsystem for highsec only, the tank is more than plenty for L4s.

I’m not sure with the 2 PCT MSB, I think two solidifier rigs give +50% HP/s

the BC are bling but on each fit you are close to limit to they save up some nice CPU.

The 3 fits have ± 400 EHP/s, the 2PCT has the least capstable and also the highest peak rep so it’s the best in that case. However you can swap a cap rig for a solidifer on the others and it makes them have highest peak(and remain capstable without 50MN) while you can’t with the 2PCT.

Left long ago and literally got some omega time this weekend. I started off with old faithful tengu. ofc. Have options like rattler but wasn’t in the mood to relearn pet/drone mechanics day 1 lol.

I did see the changes. Haven’t read in detail. Its just yeah, I knew I didn’t pull rigs and fit window to pull up old saves was going some stuff obsolete. So I went as close as to old I had with the changes.

Initial impressions to me were…

it still can speed/sig tank well. To not be uber blinged I relied on this in the past. I get some dual boost pith boost fits are good but for level 4 needs unless you have to sit still…right click orbit with a decent 10mn AB mitigates damage well mixed with racial resists. Saves some isk in the shield portion of mids.

Since it has been years I don’t know what good run times are…I got gurista assualt and a GE back to back. Bit grindy but not too bad… Also not a concern for now. It let me settle into working the ui again so a slower pace of help there… GE full clear to me was more a BS run anyway. Old standy of t3’s blitz, BS’s wipe the place. BUt the tengu did the GE well, imo. I did not do bonus room.

I recalled something could be “fun” there even if you knew it was there. So I gathered it be really “fun” coming in cold so opted to skip the bonus.

Today I decided to tryout Tengu beacuse I have good missile/shields kills. Just for Pve and I’m quite happy. I personally don’t like big ships in Eve because they are slow. When comes to dps I go around 640dps with Hams using Javelins 42km range and almost 1000dps using rage missiles at 24ish km. Im very casual player and don’t have time to play a lot. First day and tryed few lvl 4 and I’m quite happy with performance.
