I like the jackdaw for small gang/brawling potential. Anything bigger than that, and its pretty much useless. Especially as LML configuration.
Forget kiting big fleets with this hull. At least with the confessor you can make that work. And if your stuck with any kind of tidi, you'll be so much more happy that you stuck with confessor. You will at least have instant damage application with your lazors. And from what I could tell, much more consistent damage application.

Jackdaw burns through rockets like crazy...
Got a 8.4km rage range and it fires the second volley before the first even hits...

I'm going to be spending a lot on ammo for this thing.... assuming it survives that long.

It does burn through them, but therein lies the other reason for going rockets instead of LML, rate of fire. I can see a lot of situations when brawling when the quick rate of fire is going to make all the difference between wrecking or getting wrekt. Especially when you are fighting small ships, you don't want to explode because your quarry survived the first volley and popped you before your second volley even goes off.

Once again another reason to love the confessor.

That reload time though.... It's awesome!
However, I think this ship was balanced with this reload time.... Based on it's slow velocity, I think it would have been much better off with a damage buff, range, or web bonus.....

It's slow, and ineffective with LMLs, so it needs something better than a reload time, despite the reload time being pretty cool.

LMLs win for me thanks to range. Also their volley is a good 2.5x higher so where it counts you can practically volley straight through some reps.

Hopefully the image is big enough, it seems to have been shrunk when I try to look at it.
For reference all fights at the time of death were solo 1v1 with no links (on my part) involved.
The fit I've been using is t2, except for the 2 most recent ones which had 2x faction (not deadspace) modules installed.

I consider my fit to be reasonably sound, able to fight off linked garmurs at a pinch as well as some unlucky chap found out today. Getting pointed at 45km away makes me upset.

It would take a pretty dumb garmur to stick around for your volleys to hit. Even if they have to align somewhere and click warp.
I think I've only fought one ASB garmur before and it died in about 2 volleys (at 80+km with aurora). That would be about 1 cycle time for beam lasers.
How many cycles do you think I'd manage compared to a jackdaw firing at around 100km away, before that first volley of missiles hits?

It can hit to 70 km, it has flight time of 7.5 and a cycle of 6, you aren't wasting shots.

My preferred fit has managed to get LML, a T2 MSE, and combat probes. The people complaining about tight fits don't use nongank destroyers and the other D3 set a bad bar.

65km on my fit. Must be missing a level 5 skill somewhere.

Have you considered using navy medium extenders?

Currently republic extenders are 7mil a piece or you can grab cal navy for 10 mil each. 14k or 14.5k ehp respectively and fittings to spare for other mids. approx 40cpu and 3 pg.

as for damping that requires me to actually have them fit no?

I made cuts to dps for speed and utility. Sticking to cheap means when it all settles it will cost 45-55mil. And it has sub 2 tick align.

I suppose I could move up to T2 rigs.

Personally I'd just fit a passive EM hardener and an em rig rather than the invul, because it's cap expensive and if it shuts off so does 18% of your resists in EM. FWIW that jackdaw does have respectable cap but you have no injector and iirc the confessor/svipul are still faster with an extra spare high which will present some problems for you if they elect to run even a single small neut and let you burn your cap with the micro. You would cap out in 53 seconds. Even less when considering the invul, painter and damp. 30 seconds.

I'd be very careful about flying this ship in pvp especially against another t3d.

Is probably a fit i'd personally run. Totals up to 100mil ship + fittings, flavour for taste with your favourite implants.

A garmur in a 40-45km orbit at 7km/s is already safe from sharpshooter LMLs. That's like snakes only if I'm not mistaken.

I forced one off today. They're not completely safe I'd say. To that effect I always carry a standard crash booster to up the meagre dps as well. When my garmur friend warped off he had about 30% armour remaining.

7km/s orbit requires both MG Snakes and links, you'd be able to get only around 5.5-6 with just links or just snakes, cold. When linked + HG Snaked Garmurs are immune to pretty much every kind of anti tackle weapons except Lights from another Garmur or an Orthrus.

Coming back to the Jackdaw, it's completely outclassed in the LML role. Flycatcher does it much much better. It's faster and has much more reliable range since going into sharpshooter gives your 'kite' D3 the speed of a plated Cruiser. Flycatcher has more dps, more alpha, 5 mids so it gets just as much utility as the Jackdaw does. The fitting is quite solid and it can fit LMLs quite comfortably while maintaining a tank. Most importantly, Flycatcher gets an application bonus (which is absolutely huge for killing frigs) and allows it to use fury against tackled frigates and against other destroyers.

The only things the Jackdaw has going for it in an LML role is marginally better tank in speed mode, and much better tank in defense mode (which is basically just a last ditch effort if you get scram/webbed and try to kill the tackler). Also much better agility, which is the only real advantage in a kiting LML setup. The rest of the 'advantages' doesn't really matter for the role.

Either rocket brawl or go home with the Jackdaw IMO. CCP has pretty much pigeonholed it into that role by nuking the speed. This is pretty much exactly what they did to the Corax which is easily one of the least flown dessies from my experience.

Corax is a fleet vessel. When used in a fleet it is vicious. Not everything has to be great in solo and not every solo ship scales well in fleets.

Jackdaw can kind of go either way.

That's a bad argument cause the Talwar completely outclasses the Corax, better fittings, faster, same dps, same alpha, same range AND it has an MWD sig bonus which makes it significantly better in fleets. The only thing the Corax gets is an extra mid which it can't fit because of the horrendous fittings lol.

There's just absolutely no reason to use a LML Corax for anything. Ever.

If you've seen Suitonia's recent video on the Corax, its speed is so bad, that it's like 10m/s faster than a 1600plate Maller, which is pretty much the slowest Cruiser out there.

Here is a reasonably cheap fit that I've used when flying in fleets and doing FW plexes. Why this fit? It smashes frigates off the field in 2 hits.
