Ive added it to the OP to cos ive been asked a few times.

EDIT: NFI why it's locked... feel free to ask questions here, or just mail me.


Cheers.

Nothing new there, but it can't hurt to look. Other people have other ideas and you might have been doing something obvious that we've missed.

Do you warp all the ships to zero into the site? What about bumping? I imagine that if a dread hits the carrier, it will float around for minutes, not hitting anything, maybe even drift out of refitting range...

Yes, although generally everything after the first carrier warps to the carrier at zero, not the site itself. The bumping generally only happens once the dreads leave siege when the site is finished (and bumps are fairly rare).

You can set your default warp to distance to 2k if youre worried.
Like Mat said tho, generally not an issue.

Just have the carrier approach the dreads, that will automatically put it at 0km (so if it's inside bumping radius, it will move outwards).

One time my dread did get mega bumped though, like 20km away and I didn't notice until I needed to refit more tank and then freaked out when I wasn't in range. Good thing that sleepers stop shooting the dread if you stop dumping out the dps.

You sure they do? Sounds like a good way to manage aggro when in trouble!

So far I'm running only C1-C4 sites, and never had a reason to stop shooting ;)

Well, I'm not sure since this only happened once. But that's pretty much what seemed to happen. I turned off the dreads guns to conserve cap, and after ~30 seconds or something, all the sleepers started shooting the carrier--presumably because it was getting RR aggro from repping my loki.

It's been a while since last post but I only just found your guide.
Very helpful, mucho thanks.

Any tips and guidelines on soloing the sites?

If by solo, you mean you and your 5 alts - follow the steps listed in either post. If by solo you mean 1 pilot... well... you're funny

Sites can probably be done with 3 characters total. 1 carrier, 1 dread, 1 loki if you really pimp your ****.

Not if what you do is run the escalation, warp back to the POS, and have the carrier and dread pilots swap (into a new carrier/dread, because it remembers which carrier/dread was used before). So technically you can manage to get a full escalation with just 3 characters... its just... painful. Much better to do it with 4-5 characters.

You can't do this, in order to get the 3rd and 4th escalations you need to still have the first dread and first carrier on field.

I see, so minimum number of pilots to effectively run escalations is five ?

1 carrier
2 dreads
1 loki
1 noctis

is the extra carrier worth it for the extra BS spawns?

did you actually read the guide?

What you will need:
1 Triage capable Archon.
2 Moros/Revelation dreadnaughts. (No, you can't bring your Phoenix.)
1 Carrier, any race.
1 Loki.
1 Armour and Skirmish capable fleet booster. (Information is also recommended.)
1 Noctis.

Yes I did... hence why my list was exactly what you typed minus the link pilot and asking if the second carrier was worth it.

I was just asking for tips/advice on doing it solo, no need to be aggressive about it.

Don't think he was being agressive as such - Jack has pretty much cut it back to the barebones so what he lists is basically the minimum to make it worthwhile and efficient - sure you may be able to come up with some variations on the theme with experience but thats another matter.
