I am looking at battle clinic for decent Archon fits, but i have an issue.

I need to fit a Archon for WH space.
I need to focus on Shield and Energy transfer due to fleet / group dynamics!
What do you suggest as a solution...and what are examples of good Archon set-ups please.


Thanks in advance!!

I was hoping for something a little bit more specific in terms of fitting but thanks for the time posting!

Do you have any specific fitting examples i can look at and EveHQ?

Archon is for armor logistics, you don't set it up for shield transfers.

Get creative! Have everyone in fleet fit x-large local reps. Completely nerf your dps output to fit them and then just keep everyone topped off with your cap transfers. if you slip? No problem! Armor rep saves the day. Roll

You guys will be fine. 100% bulletproof plan. What? Don't forget those large shield rep drones when you're out of triage! Who needs fighters or sentries?

We started-off with Archons shield repping. They were simply fitted with Large Shield Transporter II rather than capital.

The Archons were later replaced by Revelations (same pilots) and Chimeras when we finally got the ships in and pilots trained. We sieged the dreads but didn't use triage on carriers, so we benefited from the fighters being assigned.

All our Tengu had passive resists and remote shield transporters, so the carrier only needed to assist repping when it and a capital spawned an escalation. When we got a Chimera, it took over pretty much all repping duties when it was on the field. When the second Chimera was on field (order = carrier1, dread1, dread2, carrier2) its job was DPS and cap transfer for the dreads if they needed it (usually not). I was the second Chimera pilot, as it didn't require much attention as I was opening cans and salvaging the previous site with an alt.

You really want to train for a shield specific carrier if your going to be doing shield operations, otherwise your fleet is restricted to close range to your carrier.

Unsure if you can fit a 2nd cap shield transporter on an archon due to cpu issues, but something like the below -:

Lows
Capital armor repairer I
Capital armor repairer I
faction EANM
4x faction cap power relay

Mid
4x cap recharger II

High
Triage Module I
Capital shield Transporter I
Capital shield Transporter I (can you fit a 2nd?)
Capital Energy Transfer I
Large energy transfer (meta 4)

Rigs
CCC II x2
CCC I x1
