Hi

@Ion Kirst

Thankyou......

Although expensive I changed my T2 BCUs to Caldari BCUs

It allowed me to fit all T2 Cruise Launchers and put my DPS from 590 (645 was including drones) to 833.

That's quite a jump, and as you said with better skills I should get around your figures.

Cheers

Sorry to dig out old post, I played EvE 3,5 years ago and I decited to come back month ago - I was flying L4 missions in Maelstrom and it wasn't so tough as it is now, I don't know - were there any changest through these years ? Is there any Minmatar/Artylery/Autocannon BS T1 (Excluding Machariel - which I can't aford to loose) that can do L4 in fair time? Well, now in Maelstrom it isn't imposible but it takes a lot of time because of speed of this ship. Autocanons do a lot of damage but it is imposible to get at aceptable range and tank all the damage ( 4 - 20 km) - it's alway - poor DPS or poor tank or capa not even close to stable (lasts 1m 45 s). Now when I search the Internet for info it's turning out that solo L4 missions are possible to do only in expensive Faction/Pirate versions of T1 BS or in T2 (more expensive + skill demanding).

Try putting 1200mm artillery and fitting a micro jump drive, warp in and blip as much as you can until they get too close and then activate the micro jump and start again.

If you have another weapon system trained it might be worth looking at options in that area too

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

Which one?

I can warp back to the station in 26 minutes for the Blood Raider and Sansha one.

Missiles unfortunately are the queen of pve with drones being the king. You would get much faster clear times using a typhoon with missiles and sentry setup

As Bumble indicated, you should never announce you put bling on your ship. Putting modules on the ship that cost more than it would cost to suicide gank you potentially makes you a target. I'm not telling you not to do it as the efficiency gained it hardly insignificant, just don't announce it and be aware you may be a profitable target. Also consider only using two, as the diminishing returns of the third and forth don't really justify the cost, especially as those two can be the difference between whether or not you are profitable to gank.

There's plenty of info on this forum if you want more information (you could also mail me if you're so inclined) and it's not really on topic so I won't go into too much but you've been warned. Twisted

I don't use the MJD because I love slowboating through all the things screaming, "COME AT ME BROSEF!".

For some reason, my wife just rolls her eyes. I just don't get her sometimes.
