Small deadspace shield booster or medium? If im going for max tank its medium with boost amps but that takes more CPU and limits other modules.

Is a Pithi A Type with two boost amp strong enough for 8/10 DED?

Looked up...saw this F***ING clown dropping like a rock.  Woke up in Vylade wondering what just happened!!!

What limitations?

600 DPS gank with a large booster is for sure possible, I use one myself & It's cap stable 1400 omni with a partial low grade crystal set.

A-Type Pithi Small Shield Booster CAN be enough. Provided you don't meet any hostiles, use HMLs and not HAMs, manage range properly, use some crystals and so on and so on. It's not a ******* simple question, it's EVE.

And ofc this is only the case if the 8\10 you're doing doesn't kill you using Ewar and you have proper damage projection and so on.

And using a bunch of Shield Boost Amplifers means less buffer which means more stuff can go wrong.

IMO, don't be a cheap'o and get an A-Type Gistum Medium Shield Booster or Pithum A-Type Medium Shield Booster instead. Pocket change for a real explorer, ofc this also means fitting deadspace or faction invuln field, BCU's and so on.

I use a large with 1 boost amp. My fit limits me to afterburner only, but that keeps my syg radius small. Tanks all Serpentis sites. Heavy missiles and range is how I fly them.

I tend to fly in blue space so as long as you have intel channels open your good to go. Flying in red space in a different kettle of fish. Unless you go deep into null you will be scanned out as soon as a blue of that area sees wrecks on scan.

I use one small Pith A, one T2 boost amp and a faction hardner. Easily does 8/10s (Gurista).

What rats you shooting?

T2 fit tengu, medium booster + amp. Can do all guristas plexs up to(including) the 8/10. Serpentis plexs all DED sites except the 8/10. (C type medium makes it possible).

Always use lowgrade crystals if needed.

Small deadspace boosters work great on Tengus.

In relatively secure space, this ship works absolutely amazing. You can warp into any site (Except last room of Guristas 10/10 ofc) and tank full room agro stationary. However because of the price tag, I've found I'm not using it as often, especially since most of my plexing is off the beaten path, where I would not take that thing.

Both fits work on either Serpentis or Guristas, with the second fit, I've soloed numerous of every ded site for both factions, excluding the Guristas 10/10.
