Most of the ships i see on this site are Gilas (about 50%),
you can say it is Gila Harvest for thiefs.

Cruiser or BC drone boat works really well. The AI appears to only shoot at my ship only, like the old AI. Drones that don't get aggro are handy in that first pocket, you'll get perma webbed a lot.

[edit] It's not to say drones don't get aggro at all, they appear to get shot at less in these gauntlets.

Cynabal shreds this site! The only time your drones get shot is when some a$$-hat jumps in.

I tried some different ships, as I mentioned in another post, and went with my Golem.

Overkill, maybe, but in the second room, I one shoot everything, like a shooting gallery.

To get to the first gate I use a MWD. I usually get to the gate, easily before the room is cleared, even with all the webbers.

When I pop the BC, I use a tractor beam to pull in the loot. If I'm in a room with a couple others, and if they don't destroy the BC before I lock on it, it's usually mine. I do the most damage, and get the last shot.

I just need to target things a little faster and I'll be all set.


Always remember Tovil-Toba, and what was done there.

A HAM gila is low maintenance, but I lost some races to a Jackdaw so I usually go with RLML. I've also used an Ishtar with drone nav, TP and web.

But my favorite is a Legion using multi, scorch and conflag. I sometimes dual box it with a navy vexor.

Even with 3 DDA II Gila mkes only about 2000 volley damage with Infiltrator II.
Stratios with 3 DDA II and Geckos makes 2300 volley damage and therefore gives you more chances to get battlecruiser wreck. Just do not forget two webs and target painter to kill frigates quicker.

with Geckos on, makes 822 DPS cold and is able to tank whatever you see in pockets. Without MWD it gives you almost 7 minutes capacitor time to clear the field, if you need more time you are doing something wrong... Blinged version of that fit can apply over 900 DPS with overheated guns.

I have no trouble completing those sites in a Confessor. This is a converted PvP ship (omni-tanked) with just T2 modules (no bling). So these sites aren't terribly difficult. The Fessor moves around quickly and beats drone boats to the BC wreck when some jack wagon in a Gila shows up to steal your loot. I find that in most sites if I just approach the BC while killing it, it is dead when I arrive at 0 on the wreck for a quick loot all click.

If it looks like you might lose the loot to some thief, just pop the wreck and laugh in local.
