Did CCP buff the Serpentis Burner's tank this patch?

Using the same fit and same strategy as I did prepatch, I now need to go through twice as much ammo as I used to. Used to be able to blow it up before the first reload of my rockets, but now it almost needs 2 rocket launcher reloads before it goes down.

And the Dramiel burner too seems to have had its tank boosted enough to make my rocket Vengeance ineffective.

After i lost two cheap-fitted enyos that worked just fine before, i have the same feeling.

Hello!
Recently lose my Enyo with a-type coreli small rep.
Almost rip his armor off, but unfortunately, my rep was burned.
Rumored to be the same thing happens with Angel Burner.

had an angel right now, but no issues. i got probs with the sansha twice after the patch. shot him in 75 % armor and then he was able to rep up shields to 50 % and i never got him then below 30 %. after slowboating offgrid and warp back he dont use his booster anymore and was fastly down.

they messed something up.

That's because the only time CCP talks about burner missions is to giggle how many mission ships have been destroyed.

Guess you all were getting too good and the amount of mission ships being destroyed was going down.

You'd think some sort of change note would be in the patch notes then. The only mission notes in there are various bug fixes, not re-balancing.

WARNING: CCP changed the Pirate Burner Daredevil, they upped the tank a lot and the recommended Enyo does not work anymore. It barely works with ALL V stats.
I did the Pirate Daredevil with the Enyo and noticed i need to reload the railguns and was barely able to break the tank. I was annoyed but first didn't thought of changing to a Hawk but the 2nd time i did a Pirate Daredevil i had no Warrior II and that change was huge. I couldn't break the tank and only killed it with no cap booster left (used 12) because i had nanite paste in my cargo and was able to repair the heat damage on my guns going for a 2nd heat run. Freaking close.

Hawk and explosion radius a never ending story. You can use 2 different versions, there is literally no difference in the time to kill the Burner Daredevil


Version 1:
Caldari Navy Scourge Rocket + Small Warhead Rigor Catalyst I + Small Bay Loading Accelerator II
Good for Pilots with no perfect range skills as you need at least 11.5km optimal, bad Faction Rockets are expansive.
Real DPS on the Burner Daredevil ~117 DPS, with OH TP
Time to kill: ~1:06min
EFT DPS:
249 Caldari Navy Scourge Rocket
293 hot ~54s

Version 2:

Make sure you have at least 11.5km (12.7km is with ALL V) range with T II Rockets, T II Rockets are cheap.
Real DPS on the Burner Daredevil ~115 DPS, with OH TP
Time to kill: ~1:06min

Garmur Update

Due to recent patches when CCP changed the RoF for LML, you actually now need more or less Faction Missile Launcher to make the Garmur work without wasting time on waiting perma jamming the Logi Burner.
I designed this Garmur especially vs the Team Jaguar but it works vs any Team Pirate. An AB+2xECM Garmur with LML works just fine vs any Team Pirate except vs the Team Jaguar because of speed you actually don't orbit the Team Jaguar at all and just run in a straight line ruining your locking range to get the Logis.
In short a MWD+2xECM Garmur works best vs all Team Pirate and it is unified and i like unified :). The downside it is very pimped. EFT your own cheaper version but it will cripple your fit because of the extra CPU you need.

How to vs the Team Enyo:
This one is simple, set orbit to 25km, MWD on. Kill it.
How to vs the Team Jaguar:
This one is tricky. Do not use your MWD initially, you will most likely get into web range of the Team Jaguar.
Set orbit to 28km, lock anything, apply DPS and use your ECM. Wait until the Team Jaguar is at 30 to 25km only then start your MWD.


Important
Make sure you have perfect skills for the Garmur as you need not overheat 180 DPS to kill the Logi Burner in an acceptable timeframe. Anything below not overheated 150 DPS won't kill the Logi Burner in time you will need more than 10min even with 2x ECM.



Notes:
-Republic Fleet Light Missile Launcher has the same stats as the Domination Light Missile Launcher. Buy the cheaper one.
-Change the ECM modules accordingly

180 with any faction missiles

About other changes like ploing mentioned the Pirate Succubus and Artassaut the Pirate Dramiel, i didn't observe them yet but maybe because i use mostly Daredevils. They just plow through anything and any changes were obscured by that fact. Anyway i will have an close eye on that matter so far only the Pirate Daredevil was significant.

From my point of view not much has changed, they are still all doable. You can even debate that the change/s are ok because the Pirate Daredevil was one of the easier ones and now is tougher. On the other hand if the changes prevent ship diversity and weren't intended CCP should roll back.

Did the single Sansha burner with Daredevil blaster fit (Null - higher thermal dmg, Void is marginally better but you waste time closing the distance), it popped in about 1 min with no overheats.
This was after the Jan 15 server side fix for the NPC.

Took the extra precaution of a maxed OGB, just in case, after reading the burner changes post-patch.
Turned out this wasn't really needed.

The Kitsune with 4 Gallente jammers and a MWD makes the team Enyo ridiculously easy. Just orbit at 35km, jam the logis and wait for your 50 dps (lol) to kill him!

I lost two Wolf"s before trying it though.

It depends on how successful your jams are on the logi's and how many times they burn out to 100km and then come back. Probably about 5 mins. My fit was nearly the same as Thorondir's (below) but I used t1 rigs and a t1 micro aux power core. My EFT stats show a racial jam strength of 9.5, 53 dps with CN Nova (42km range), and 2529 m/s. It all runs cap stable at 55%.

Looking at the other team burner stats I think it would work for all of them, just changing out the racial jammers. Maybe need to be a bit more careful against the Jaguar though.

just orbit at 25km and jam the supporters whenever they come close (ca 60km such that your jams are in optimal)

EDIT: you only need to kill the enyo .. keep the support alive

I've had the chance to do the Sansha Burner twice now, and using a Wolf, I haven't had any issues. I did get Assault Frigates to 5 finally though, which made him much easier to deal with.

Has anyone here had any experience with the Angel Burner in a Vengeance lately? I haven't had him pop up again since I reported the change. Would like to know before I have to spend 50 minutes slowboating out again.
