I have a quick question. I am thinking of getting a friend to do burner missions with me.

I Googled around but only found solo videos and guides. Are there any restrictions to fleeting up with a friend to do them?

Also, they will be much easier to do in a pair right? E.g. without expensive faction modules?

yes you can. Just keep in mind that burners are really difficult. Even two new players will have a hard time to kill them. But no reason not to try.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Awesome. Thanks!

I have an Omega account that can fly assault frigates. So does my friend.

Based on what you said, I am probably gonna look for a third assault frigate pilot before we attempt a frigate burner together. (no faction or officer mods, T2 at most)

You Can Fleet up as many as you want for burners. There nasty little critters. Consider a heavy tanked Bait **** with a form of ECM so that the burner will focus on them.

Keep in mind, though that if you fail to finish the mission, there is NO penalty for canceling it. Burners are the only mission you can cancel innumerable amount f times and NOT Suffer a penalty.

Team burners are surely much easier for a pair than solo. You can just bring another dps to kill the logi faster, or bring an ECM to jam the logi.
The other burner missions should also be easier. But remember that if those expensive factional modules are for tank, you'd better still have them, both of you, but as far as I know, there aren't many of these. Or you can drop a dps upgrade for another tank module.

If you make use of remote repair the missions can be much easier. Keep in mind that you should have a plan as you won't have much time to react. I would not be afraid to experiment with cheap fits and cheap ships. You will probably loose some figuring it out.

All of the guides are solo as that is the most challenging and typically the best way to make money. I've theory crafted group burners a bunch but I've never actually tried it.

Daredevil is amazing for its 90% web. Many burners cheat a bit and are too fast or have very small sigs, a 90% web puts them back on a level playing field. Also the DD does a ton of damage.

AF are good due to their t2 resists should make pretty much all burners tank able, but not sure they have the greatest dps. Having 2 should be plenty of damage though.

For the team burners there are many kiting strategies that should work, with 2 people you have plenty of room for ecm and damage. Garmur has become the standard, but I've also played around with a beam retribution and 150mm harpy, I'm guessing a comet or slicer would work with 2 people. That said you have 2 people so overwhelming DPS would probably also be a great strategy.
