Level 5 Low Sec Mission Questions if you have time?

For the two years I've played various characters, I've just done Level 4 Missions for ISK in High Sec or Anoms in Null Sec.

I am wondering the following about LVL 5 missioning in Low Sec.

1) If one was to join a Low Sec Corp, is low sec similar to Null with the shiny blues and everyone else gets attacked? So in other words, the locals look out for the locals..... or ...... is it Dog Eat Dog with the various corp in Low compared to Null. Are Alliances common to Low as well?
2) The LP Payout is Huge compared to HS Missions. I've researched the completion times from others who've done them and they appear to be a much better reward for time. Is that your experience?
3) If you were to decide to run 3 toons for LVL 5 mission running, how would you do it to survive the PVP aspect of the risk/reward variable. Understanding that PVP isn't something I want these characters to be used for.

Thanks

You can get around 100k lp for a lvl 5 mission

not worth doing as most of them are anti faction missions. and the tags that drop are the same as lvl 4 mission just more of them.

imo not worth the hassel.

Check out my old post for lots of l5 info.

In short.
A group of three can run 3 to 4 L5 per hour
select blitz missions only
Pirates are no problem assuming you can use d scan and aren't stupid.
I would go domi x2 + auguror
Cant post fits from phone.

Thanks for that... I will check it out...


and as Julius mentioned.... 100k Lp is huge = $100m ISK per mission if each LP trades around 1k ISK each.

ten times my lvl 4 missions.

thing is, I multibox 4 toons on my missions anyway.


Just don't know the PVP variable or corp issues..... anyone?

2x domis + logi. 4th char in falcon. At that point, only a 10+ man gang or hotdrop really bothers to engange you.

If you can find an area and join the locals that are blue to each other and can really control the mission a carrier is the way to run em.. You can run up standings on four or five cyno alts and move from system to system running only blitz missions and declining the rest.. the more alts you have to pull missions the most isk you can make because you can pick what missions you wanna run.. I know people who have netted over a million lp an hr very easily this way..

The trick really is about the alts and getting enough of them to pick and choose missions..

I've run level 5 missions with my alts for yrs. my preferred ship is a tengu or 3, reason for tengy is it can do them passive fit easily enough, also fair amount of travelling in low sec so you can always carry the covert sub in your cargo hold and if the mission system has a station just dock fit the dps sub and run the mission. After its finished dock replace covert and head bck to agent.

Also make your self some insta undock points and insta dock points for stations. This will prevent you from being camped or getting caught out at station when warp to 0 does anything but warp you to 0.

Yep faction standing is preferable to corp as you can skip alot of crap missions but be sure not too quit too many cause if ur corp standing drops below minimum for missions with that corp faction standing wont help ya!

If you want to use capitals then yes you will need blue with locals or save yaself sometime and blow urself up cause you are a huge target

I tried 4 ships once, but the extra amount of dps it gives and the logistics involved in boxeing 4 accounts means its just not needed, i'd stick to 3 and just have a looter

What do You think about doing them with rubicon marauder, especially taking missions from agent that's in LS system directly next to HS system so he will give some missions in HS? Worth it? How often can he give mission in HS?

Doesn't happen.

Never forget.

Used to happen, and it was fixed.

It is dog eats dog, you will get some blues and some intel, but don't expect people holding your hand or coming to your rescue if you do something stupid. It is highly advisable to be a halve way proficient pvper or at least know how to avoid getting ganked in locals that are not blue.

Edit: The tip with 2 domis, 1 logi and 1 falcon is very solid, since it gives you enough to ignore the random traveller in a cane, means to get ships off grid against single tacklers and ok DPS for the ISK invested.
