Low Sec Mission Running Suggestions Needed.

Reforming HS mission Runner and unfamiliar with Low Sec Entry.

Question if you have time.

Q = When going into Low for a PVE mission, what is the best fit items to make it past the gate camps. I'll use a mobile depot to fit my mission after I'm in a safe spot. I'll be flying Destroyers for level 3 missions.

? = Any other advice, other than checking D-scan and local. Not going to a heavy PVP area, so there usually are only a half dozen players or less in local.


Thanks

If you want to travel fit, then fit the lows with warp core stabs and inertial stabilizers and then a MWD in the mids and a prototype/improved cloak in the highs.

However, lowsec gate camps are mostly located on highsec to lowsec entry gates and there is always an alternative gate you can use to avoid the camp.

Once you're in lowsec, movement is normally fairly easy.

If you have an alt on a separate account, sending the alt through in a pod to scout ahead helps also, but really aside from a few gates, lowsec gate camps are not a huge problem.

If you are using destroyers for mission running, is a T3D an option? If so, then just fit as normal and use the instawarp mode change.

You can either fly something inexpensive or a cruiser capable of using the mwd/cloak trick. However, if you really feel like trying lowsec, learning a bit of pvp will help tremendously, if not simply to know how to minimize risk while traveling.

This is a signature.

It has a 25m signature.

No it's not a cosmic signature.

Probably.

Btw my corp's recruiting.

HICs are a thing, and when you get pointed by one stabs don't do a thing. IMO it isn't a proper camp unless it has a HIC, and come the December patch I imagine we will be seeing HICs everywhere. "Scripted Warp Disruption Field Generators now Scramble, disabling MJDs and MWDs" https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=454076

I also probably wouldn't bother with sitting around refitting at a mobile depot, waiting a minute can suck and/or get you killed. If the area has stations setting up insta warps on stations is probably a better way to go. and if it is a slow area I'd guess the chances of a camp should be rather low, so it should be easy to just combat fit and move around once you get in.

and since you said lv3s and destroyers I'm kinda assuming t3ds? with some of them you can start in speed mode, hit warp, and switch to another mode and nearly insta warp. Or just stay in speed mode and fit a few i-stabs and have a <2s warp.

I love the spirit of this post I think it's a great idea to get over low-sec phobia. (I make a around 500m/1bn a month from my ISK from Low sec PVE)

That said L4 missions aren't the way to do it. If you want to run missions, join a maliitia. You can run the missions faster, in a safe ship (stealth bomber or travel fit Ahac) and make way more ISK doing it. Plus malitia fleets will get you into basic PVP and let you meet some cool people. I suggest Calibrated Chaos in Amarr Malitia. I thin kthey base out of Huola.

Khanid low sec is pretty good for mission running.

Same with some of the Amarr regions, like Kador or Kor Azor

The way to do low sec missions is in ships you don't mind losing. I watched this video 2 years ago and then set up to do it myself. It works, even without the K-Pop playing in the background Big smile

The best LP is still consistently SoE, and their Low-Sec system is often controlled heavily by a group who farm them.

If CCP were serious about more people doing what this guy wants to, they would increase the randomness and quantity of agents in Low Sec and Null.

Back in the day, I used to blitz the crap out of missions in a very well known system that is virtually -0 space, and had half a dozen agents.

But that was back In the days of the ECCM Tengu Pirate

CCP Quant: Of all those who logon in Eve, 1.5% do Incursions, 13.8% PVP and 19.2% run Missions while 22.4% mine.

40.7% Join a fleet. The idea that Eve is a PVP game is false, the social fabric is in Missions and Mining.

Allbeit you are probably better off mission running in null, its less populated

Miroitem and Thelan are probably the safest places in Lowsec to run missions. Really just a group of miners there.

Thanks for the replies..

I am currently in a Corax and working towards a Jackdaw.
I have a station with 3 level 3 agents and I take every mission that's not faction, low or HS.

I like the added thrill.

Ah sorry my bad, however id still be inclined to do lvl 3's for a faction who offers lvl 5's, longterm goals and all that

Sure thing.... the 835 NPC Ship kills must be a mistake.
