Regarding burner mission: We are not aware of any problems with burner missions and I can also not see any bug reports about this. Could you please give more details or send a bug report?


So, let's start filing bug reports?

I was finally blessed/cursed with the Daredevil. I knew he'd be tricky, and I had to give up on my "only guns" approach. Believe me I tried..

(2 capacitor modules = cap stable)
Time to kil ~7 minutes. With 313 EHP/S sustained, you can slowboat out of range if you need to (takes hours). I have Hybrid Turrets LV3, so I imagine all 5's and T2 could get one more damage. PYFA reports 149 DPS, 10.9km optimal and 0.171 on tracking.

Besides skills, I'd love to see this fit be sped up. I'm new to hybrids and Caldari are the only other Race I can swing an AF in. Bottom line: if you can make this cap stable, it is a sure (slow) win.

I have tried using the Kestrel as well as the Hawk on solo burner missions, the Kestrel was an utter failure, I assume due to the recent nerf. The Hawk was more successful, but horribly slow at killing. After merging some ideas from several people I came up with a fit on a rather strange ship to use. The Ishkur is an excellent ship for all the team burner missions. I'll enclose a youtube video of my first test mission. Check it out if you want to try something new.

Has anyone here had any experience with the Angel Burner in a Vengeance lately? I haven't had him pop up again since I reported the change. Would like to know before I have to spend 50 minutes slowboating out again.

Just did the Angel burner with my regular vengeance fit. The Angel burner went down like he normally does, no weird double shield booster power bug. That puts me back to being able to do all the burners again.

enter gate ... soon as u land burn away from them until your in 30-40km optimal ranges for rails and match their speed manually while heading away in a straight line ... once they line up behind you in low transversal apply guns and drones. it was the mission with the jaguar and 2 bursts ... . took less then 5 minutes im sure but I wasn't counting.

I watched the vid, great job.. By the way, what is the exact loadout you used? Will this work against the single burner missions or is it just mission specific?

I just came up with that fit on the fly from stuff available in my region fyi .. im sure someone could refine it and improve it. like I know now from looking at eft the 2nd cap recharger is pointless and can be exchanged for a target painter.. something like this mb.

230+ dps and just kite them .. shoot guns let them agro and follow you at low transversal(don't orbit) and then match speed at your optimal and send drones out

Time to kill : 1m17s so it should work with overheated m4 webs. Tank was generous, probably I could use second mfs but I ran out of cpu so it would need much more pimping. Deadspace platings were very cheap, so was t2 rig.

Btw I think that triple web hawk will be even better vs serpentis burner.




Have fought the Serpentis Burner recently using an enyo like mentioned above.
Had no probelems to break his tank. (ok, overheated my guns but nothing else)
Maybe i had just luck xD

Sorry for the delay, here is my Ishkur loadout. And yes, it is good for all the team burner missions, do not try it on the solo burner missions or you will die in a fire in your capsule. Also, be sure to swap out your ECM to the proper mission assault frigate as well as your drones.

Basic Rules and some special ones. For a long time i didn't lost any Frigate to Burner then it snowballed. Losses right now are ~1.8b including 3x Garmur, 3x Daredevil and 1x Wolf, the good thing my ISK/h is 400m/h (including LP of course) with raiding selected missions to get at best 8x Burner missions per hour. I can't remember all losses in detail but i know what caused them. Burner are unforgiving one big mistake and you are dead.

So here they are ... rules:

  1. Do not deal with Burners when you are tired, drunk or stoned you will forget something important like to use your MWD, rep etc.
  2. Before you enter the room make sure you have the correct Frigate to deal with the Burner. Double check it every damn time.
  3. Do not enter a Team Burner again/alone in a kiting setup after you lost a Frigate. The NPCs will be at ZERO and kill you again.
  4. Do not get cocky in any way like "i could let the armor/shield drop a little lower to spare cap booster", a wrecking shot will hit and kill you.
  5. Always and i mean always double check that all mods are activated/deactivated and heated if necessary even if you aren't tired. In plain english do not burn out your mods.


I lost ships to all 5 rules at least once ignoring them willfully. Especially losing to rule 2 is hilarious when you notice what just happened.

the thing that originally sucks on this one ... is if u burn out your mwd or scram from the initial overheat and slingshot to scram them then ur screwed!

with this fit all u gotta do is go repair ur mwd if u miss ur slingshot and come back and try again because you can always warp off.

its a great way to practice slingshotting with an overheated mwd that's 100% safe.

once you get the hang of it you can do it with no stab and feel like a pro..... =)

overheat your mwd and run him down ... you need to land your scram before your mwd burns out basically ... once you got him scrammed then he drops down to like 300 ms and u can turn off your mwd and just tank'n'spank him.

use VOID instead of antimatter as well its a bit better dps.

you will need 2-3 cycles of overheated mwd on approach to him to get in range ... and put the cap booster in the middle of the mid slots ... helps disperse the heat. even if your mwd burns out as long as u got him scrammed your good to go. if your scram or booster burn out during initial approach then its time to abort warp out and repair the burned modules(paste or station)and try again.

ive only tested this fit vs burner worm and works great fyi.

tanks just fine with good skills

enter gate ... overheat mwd and approach worm ... turn on repper(leave repper on) and cap booster as needed ... scram him when in range and turn off mwd/overheat ... turn on guns in optimal 2-3k ... overheat guns and put drone on him at 50% shield or so.

warp out if u cant do it and repair(paste or station) and try again. if your careful should be a high success rate for burner worm doing this although may not be the fastest. still decent though for a cheapish fit.
