Hi guys,

Quick question

I run lv 5 missions now in a carrier, but because of the 4 hour decline rule i cant perma run them once i get a mission that cant be done with a carrier (IE its Gated)

What are my options.

What would be the best ship to use for doing the other Gated missions iam guessing a Golem or vagur as they can be used with passive tanks.

Also i read somewhere that if you get faction standing above +7 your corp/agent level is not then taken into account. so declining more then once ever 4 hours would still knock down your faction standing... but becasue of faction standing you would still be able to pull missions as long as corp/agent standing remains above -2.0??

Can anyone confirm this?

If the faction thing is true how long would it take, to get a char to above 7 faction standing if you jsut ignore the other factions as never going to HS anyway so dont have to balance it.

Ty for your time guys Hope someone can help me with the correct info.

As long as your faction is above 7 and agent above -2.0 you can accept missions. Declining still affects faction standing but only by a minimal amount, and the storyline's offset this decrease. The problem will be stopping the agent going below -2.0 as that standing drops like a stone. I use ishtar for gateds but then I'm running for gallente, not sure how this works for elsewhere. Rattlesnake seems like a good choice as well.

COSMOS, epic arcs, data tags all get your faction standing up. Done for both allied faction it wouldn't take more than a couple of weeks with max social skills.

Useing sentrys or normal drones could ya give me a fit by chance?

use a tengu or a gila for gated ones . Get standings on a few alts to "pull" missions .

Opportunities multiply as they are seized.

I had great aspirations of running all the gated level 5 missions so I bought all the pimped ships I'd need on TQ and waited on SiSi to update and gave it a try.

I was dualboxing and running a machariel + basilisk. It didn't go very well but there were a few I could run. I've seen people run them in tengu's and you could probably get away with a lot with dual RR tengu's. The abysmal DPS of tengu's made me not want to waste my time though.

Not today spaghetti.

I have 5 toons atm that can pull them but still seem to be running out. thinking about a nother account but 4 accounts starting to push it a little really :).

maybe tho :P

I did them before with 2 golems but they where passive tanked becaue of the neuts but sites just seemed to take for ever. want to be able to blast them out fast so i can get back onto the carrier missions.

will a gila or tengu manage this as the longer iam in space the more iam at risk.

I've seen people do them using RR Domis.
