Looking for a Loki fit for PvE in Blood Raider Space.

I prefer to stay away from deadspace items. I would like it to be an autocannon fit with no missles.
This is my first T3 ship and im pretty much clueless when it comes to selecting subsystems.

Any and all advice is appreciated, thanks for your time.

this one is ok:
http://eve.battleclinic.com/loadout/48369-Loki-PvE-LV4-CR.html

if you don't want to waste 300 mil on the booster, a large T2 may do it, if you have the PG. if you don't care about being ganked, you can use em/thermal hardeners instead of invuls.

edit: if you need a probe launcher, you can easily swap the defensive subsystem for adaptive shielding, which will cost you some lows but grant you a medium for a tracking comp and a high for your launcher.

I should buy an Ishtar.

yea except that fit isnt very helpful now is it? Its active tanked. You said blood raiders. Dont be afraid to tell this battleclinic idiot his fit is terrible and he should feel terrible.

Now for blood raiders you want a pasive tank since obviously in a loki, youll be up close in the neut range. and im going to just take a guess here and say youre running plexes with it. Because why else would you use a loki instead of a long range nightmare that does great damage types and stays out of range?

Anyways... heres the fit you want and no this isnt going to be an EFT style link.
High slots: 5x 425mm Autocannon II, 1x Savager II (though you can leave this slot empty to use as a 'heat sink')

Med slots: 2x Pithum A-Type Thermic Dissipation Amplifier, 1x Pithum A-Type EM Ward Amplifier, 3x Republic Fleet Large Shield Extender. (Yea you said no deadspace/faction but the resists are a necessity. The extenders you can go T2, but I recommend the fleet ones for reduced sig radius)

Low slots: 4x Shield Power Relay II

Rigs: 3x Medium Core Defense Field Purger II (Its a loki don't be cheap)

Subsystems: 1x Loki Propulsion - Chassis Optimization,
1x Loki Electronics - Tactical Targeting Network
1x Loki Offensive - Projectile Scoping Array
1x Loki Defensive - Adaptive Shielding
1x Loki Engineering - Supplemental Coolant Injector

Have fun, tanked a 10/10 last time i used it

Bad fit


You must be trolling surely?

No prop mod
No damage mods
Expensive

The only thing that fit does is tank. Even with perfect skills that Loki will be doing about 120 DPS at 30kms with barrage. In short, it is a terrible fit.

as in missions in hisec, ratting in null or something in between?

ratting in null? use a cheap Tach fit Oracle, park it at range and press F1 to watch the pretty lights incinerate stuff

missions in hisec? pretty much any other ship will be better

something in between? if that something requires a cloak and probe launcher you should be ok, if not use something else

Its explained in the post that its for blood raider plexes. toss it in to tank **** and bring an alt for DPS. Or be a man and use a nightmare if youre just ratting with a ship because lokis are not the best for flat out ratting.

Why buy a 3/4 billion ship and fit it secondary mods.

When You're flying T3 cruisers you should not hold back on the mods.

If you're in alliance space, a loki isn't the best option, if you're in hostile space a Loki is a nice covert-ops plex runner.

If you want to do blood raider plexes, you dont want to do it with one ship but at least two.
The passive Loki is an excellent tank for blood raiders but in addition you will require an dps ship.

after patch rats will switch targets, say bye bye to tank + dps ship tactic. BR anoms will be the hardest imho.
