Hey guys,

I've trained up my skills in missiles, successfully trained 5s for lasers, and flown all Amarrian cruisers and BS. I have a Cloak/Nullified Proteus, but I've come to find interest in the Legion. As far as forum posts go, I've seen that it's a great neuting ship when accordingly fit, and I also hear they are great for laying out DPS, and having high tanks.Rather than just trust some guy selling one in Jita, I'd love to hear from the forum community about how these beasts perform in PvP Pirate , as well as PvE.

No idea about PvP, apparently they're the worst of the 4 T3s, but that's just some rumor I heard. However, they're one of the best T3s for armor VG fleets.

they make a pretty mean 100 km sniper ship . . . for PvE, the most popular seems to be a HAM fit.

for vanguards the legion is king in the dps department closly folowed by the loki for the web's

on a more personal note i think the could do well for low class WH due to the fact they don't need a whole cargohold of ammo :)

for pvp i have no idea nerver seen one used in pvp so far

actually there is no reason at all to use a legion.
everyone else does same thing better with the tengu outshines it in all departments.
its also a fast training to get to tengu so shouldnt be any problems.

Legions are pretty good for Incursions.

If you think about it, there is no "worst" one, as they all specialize in a certain role, or whatever you see to fitting it for. I'd just like to know, how they do for Logistics, PvP, and sniping (if you've used them in Wormholes or other PvE, please share that too.

a legion can solo C1s and C2s ok except when salvaging is involved, for that you need to gimp your ship, whereas you can simply solo them in a drake and salvage as you go without gimping yourself

Expanding on WH, since you can go virtually ammo-less, it can last a long time in the environment. Nanite repair paste is your only concern, but only if you are prone to over heating. Ok, that and probes maybe. Still, you get the idea. It plays well off the advantage of lasers.
