I've had a few of these frigates over the years but I've never quite nailed how to fly it. I've tried brawling with an ASB but found it lacks in tank compared to a lot of shield based assault frigate, and not enough dpss to blap things before it dies. As a kiter it lacks the lowslots to outrun other frigates. For its price I'd like to think it shines somewhere like its faction brothers but I just can't seem to find it. So, how do you guys fly yours? Looking for fits and advice!

I don't think pirate ships have been rebalanced yet, so I wouldn't be surprised if there is little to no reason to fly a succubus now. I can't even remember the last time I've seen anyone fly one.

It's pretty much useless. Anything it does you can find a ship to do better at lower cost. Usually that ship is either the Retribution or the Slicer. The poor thing has no real place in the metagame right now.

If you really, really, really want to take it out, use it to explore in Blood/Sansha space. It isn't really "good" for that, but it can get by.

Edit: but just to be clear, the Slicer does that better too.

Like the Phantasm, it's pretty useless until the pirate ships get a rebalanced.

Unlike the Phantasm it doesn't even look good!

I have a pretty standard ACB fitted Succubus, but thanks the the pricetag i cant justify using it ever. So it just sits in storage as a trophee.

Best thing you can do is not buy one. Its a shame though that they are useful like the Nightmare. Maybe TD bonuses since the rats love them so much.

I don't.



It does look pretty in my hangar though?

The way to fly a Succubus is toward Jita 4-4, to be sold.

keep it in your hangar till they rebalance pirate ships.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

263 DPS with multi, 210 with scorch. You have a perma 100 DPS tank.

The problem is... its just so slow :( 2.8k/s unheated with an MWD is sad for a frig. Anything with a long point will kite you forever. Unless you can pull off a hero sling shot. On the other hand, you can also tank them for a long while as well :)

Its not good... But then again the hull is just horrible lol
