A better ship compared to? And for which level of missions?


Without knowing anything else, all I can say is use a drake.

For Amarr Coercer is good for Lvl 2 Missions, Harbinger Lvl 3, Apoc Lvl 4.

Caldari has a better Dmg profile. Caracal Lvl 2, Drake 3, Raven 4.

Don't use a Drake. Please. Oh god please don't use a Drake.

Any particular reason why you dislike the Drake?

What do you think is terrible about it?

Great Range
550+ DPS on Cruiser sized Targets.
Strong Tank

Not seeing a big problem here.

You're missing the part where it's a Drake.

If using a punisher I am assuming you are training up you gun and fitting skills and based in Amarr space. Personally I'd go with the Harbinger for Lvl 3's.

Yes the Drake is a good PVE ship but it is terribly BORING....volley counting etc lasers are excellent vs most mission rats you will come up against in Amarr space and it's instant damage - stick with it, for me ultimate ship in that scenario is the Nightmare for lvl 4's....annihilates the opposition.

It's not. You'll need a cruiser unless you have some exceptional skills.

No implants, 3 BCU, 2 Painters which makes Cruisers take the DPS.

We are talking Lvl 3 Missions here if you fit more tank you don't know what you are doing.

Which begs the question if you find it so funny what low end over tanked crap Drake setup have you been using for Lvl 3's that makes you find 550 DPS funny?
