I think my best time was about 1h 10m. Doing what? Almost max skill prowler, L4 distribution. You’ve got an align time of about 5 seconds and a warp speed over 10AU/s with HVO rigs, while still fitting 3 cargo expanders to net you 9k cargo space, enough for 3 giant secure containers, giving you space for almost any distribution mission save one, which is going to take 3 trips, but it’s a L4 storyline.
Keep a couple interial stabs in your cargo for the 4km3 missions, and you can even bring the align time down to sub-4s, while keeping the 2 repacked secures on you.
Start the run in the heart of an empire, but just grab whatever’s close to your destination for the next one, and you shouldn’t have any take more than about 5 minutes. The only ones that will slow you down are the rare kill missions, which are still generally much easier and faster than the Security alternatives. Keep tabs on your completion count (16/storyline), and make sure you complete the final one for the right faction/corp. It’s going to take a bit longer if you’re trying to be picky about who you work for along the way.
Fit isn’t hard by any means. Tank is whatever keeps highsec gate campers off your back for those few seconds you’re uncloaked , and as long as you’re not near Niarja on a Friday, no one’s going to bother you while you watch tv while semi-mindlessly clicking ‘jump’. I normally toss on a purely passive buffer shield tank for about 25kehp which is totally overkill.
I’ve been engaged twice at gates, survived both times since they couldn’t kill me before I was warping away. Some may think you’re a potential juicy target since you can’t be scanned.
They get dead boring, and you have to be on top of your clicking jump, but hey, makes a great ‘netflix and chill’ mission setup with extremely low risk in a sub-300M fit. Your LPs end up all over the place, so it’s not great for isk if you’re doing them for whomever, but if you need to repair standing nothing really beats it that I’ve found. Also good for getting standing up on the research corps that don’t have many higher level Security agents.
