No offense but if you need to come here asking if that is a good fit, you definitely should not be putting half a bil+ into a frigate fit. You arguably should never put half a bil into a frigate fit.

You should ditch that plate for a drone damage amplifier and for the love of Sansha, fit a mwd and a long point.

Which of those mods costs that much? I mean your advice is sound, no question.

Just curious. The a-type rep costs around 40m and the afterburner I am not sure. I found 2x a-type afterburners in 2x DED 3/10.

You cant run that fit witnout a +5% grid implant or a full geno set.

Altho I prefer the Navy Maulus (worship it) for that.....

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)

Which is a hell of a lot for a Frigate, but it's not half a billion.

they're pretty schmick and insanely cheap for the wicked bonuses they provide. I've used one with links, 4x friendly re-sebos and a faction scram on gatecamps once or twice. +5 points of scram at >18km cold and <1.5s lock time? It's kinda rude actually.

Also, fantastic for holding down stabbed LP farmers in Faction Warfare 'plexes.

As the person who invented using the Astero for PVP, (seriously check it out, the evidence is on zkill. I got the first ever kill with the Astero on Tranquility at 15:18 EVE Time on November 19th 2013.), I feel like I can speak on this subject with some authority.

Firstly, your fit is bad and you should feel bad. It is too expensive and poorly tanked. That 100mm plate won't do anything and with your fit, the bling is bad.

Secondly , There are 3 main ways to fit a PVP, non-stabbed ship catching Astero.

1) MIds: AB, Scram, Web, Small Cap Booster. Lows: DCU, 2 deadspace small armour reppers, EANM. This ship is a regular brawler, repping loads of DPS and benefitting from the Astero's high resistances.

2) Mids: AB, scram, 2x webs. Lows: 200mm plate, Small Ancilliary Armour repper, 2 x passive resist mods. This ship is fights at the edge of scram range, using 2x webs for raneg control and disengaging if needed. This is the pussycat fit that lets you run away screaming like a little girl if needed, and was my favourite for a long time .

3). Mids: MWD, Warp Disruptor, Small Cap Booster, one other mod. Lows:. DCU, small ancilliary reppert, 2 x Drone Damage Amps or 1 x DDA + 1 Overdrive Injector., or 2 x Overdrive Injectors. This is the kiting fit, flown like a cloaky kite tristan.

For catching stabbed people, it depends on your victim. For catching explorers a scram + true sansha scram will grab those pesky fools who put 4 warp core stabs in their lows. For lowsec FW plexes, the farmer will often be outside of scram range and thus you must use a MWD and 3 warp disruptor 2s in your mids.

I normally run with a full set of genos so thats the reason im not concerned about fit.

Looks kind of meh, but I used this to great success months ago. I pretty much roamed to nullsec pockets that were occupied with pets, because you are in a frigate that is not normally used for PvP, they often threw things like Daredevils, Sabres, Dramiels, every frigate really. Could pick and choose my fights, if you decloak on the gate and cloak + re-approach, they pretty much take the cloak as "If I catch this guy, free kill".

Rather than start a new (but similar) topic, I thought I'd leave this here.

I'm looking at getting into wormhole pvp, and this is the Astero fit I'm considering.

[Astero, Astero]
Damage Control II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
Small Ancillary Armor Repairer, Nanite Repair Paste

1MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner
Warp Scrambler II
Fleeting Compact Stasis Webifier
Fleeting Compact Stasis Webifier

Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Core Probe Launcher I, Core Scanner Probe I

Small Auxiliary Nano Pump I
Small Auxiliary Nano Pump I
Small Nanobot Accelerator I


How is this for a starter fit? Are there any obvious improvements that I can make?
