As the title suggests im searching for a good fitting to jump safely thru lowsec space.

At the moment i have the following fit:


Bestower Lowsec

Warp Core Stabilizer II
Warp Core Stabilizer II
Warp Core Stabilizer II
Warp Core Stabilizer II

Small Shield Extender II
Small Shield Extender II
Small Shield Extender II
10mn Afterburner I

Prototype Cloaking Device
High Slot

Medium Cargohold Optimization I
Medium Cargohold Optimization I
Medium Cargohold Optimization I


I have a feeling this is not that good at all. Suggestions welcome

You'll want a 10mn MWD instead of the AB. Enough fitting mods to make it work plus whatever else left for cargo I guess. If you muck up the MWD + cloak trick you're probably going down nomatter what so the rest of the fit doesn't much matter. Maybe something like this:

[Bestower, low sec]
Reactor Control Unit II
Reactor Control Unit II
Reactor Control Unit II
Expanded Cargohold II

Experimental 10MN MicroWarpdrive I
'Cetus' ECM Shockwave I
[empty med slot]
[empty med slot]

Improved Cloaking Device II
[empty high slot]

Medium Cargohold Optimization I
Medium Ancillary Current Router I
Medium Ancillary Current Router I

Without Energy Grid Upgrades 5 (and the access to RCU IIs that it grants) this gets harder (4 beta RCUs and two ACRs will do it).

thanks i will test this with my skills on EFT

edit:
seems like the Beta RCUĀ“s are not enough. I only get 142 Powergrid and MWD need 150

Do i need Engineering 5 to get the needed Powergrid amount?

"Engineering" V is pretty much mandatory.

If you only have access to Beta RCU's try something with Aux Power cores. I'll attach a fit at the end of the post. There are better APC variants available, but they are a bit pricey or you may not have the skills to use them. Check it out.

Good advice: if hauling in low sec with bestower, you either finish what you are doing or you are dead. Theres nothing in between. Most ships can instapop it.

im only flying lowsec during server restart where is less risky - also i look carefully on system stats. Im skilling for an impel at the moment but i need to make good trades while im skilling so there is only the bestower option and keeping risk to a minimum.

Thanks melina i will try that also

Impel is a ship that can withstand huge damage, has warp bonus and can haul much more. I remember I was like omgwtf when I switched from Bestower to Impel. Its like comparing a steak and poop Big smile Also the blockade runners are worth considering- their speed and agility are so awesome you wont want anything else.

ROFL @ these guys trying to get you killed

ECM??? ROFL???

in my experiences delivering lowsec courier contracts (in an Iteron V, mind you, but the same principles still apply I'm guessing), you were totally right in your original post.

Lows should be WCS and mids should be AB + as much shield as you can muster (invuln field might be better than those small shield extenders tho, rofl....idk...i would fit 2 medium shield extenders + 2 invuln fields in my Iteron V). Highs need a cloak, yep. Good luck!

If that is an ECM Burst, I tried that once, only to be killed by gate guns, lol.

put some time in industry and get to transports ships, Prorator will fit all your low sec needs.

Improved Cloaking Device II <- Prototype has too high a penalty to speed.
