Ships for Burner Missions

I tried a garmur for a burner mission, but lost it. I didn't even scratch his shields. I used the right missiles and also overheated them.
I was thinking it was because he was going so fast. I didn't fit a web, was that why? Was my ship of choice poor..? It seems it gives bonuses to warp scrambler and warp disrupter that don't help in this mission. My next ship of choice is using a wolf or a jag, over even a dramiel. Any thoughts about approaching these missions better..?

Before you do anything else Burner related, I suggest first reading all of the various 'Burner' guides in this sub-forum.

Just remember that these forums will soon be shut down and turned into 'Read Only' due to CCP activating new forums here :

Wish I had an answer for you that was more helpful.

overall players have found a bunch of ways to deal with the burner missions, and they have been pretty well documented in these threads:

burner thread on new forums:
burner thread on these forums:

note with the forum switch over (tomorrow?) these links probably won't work after that. Both threads should be pretty easy to find in the missions forums though.

going to need to start with which burner mission it was, and what your fit is. The garmur is mainly useful for the team burner missions, where it can kite and DPS from range, polarized rockets are the main fit.

Garmur might work for some of the pirate burners, but I've never actually tried it there. Going to need a pretty big tank for most of those, and probably some webs and/or painters to apply damage.

IIRC the only burners the garmur works for are the team burners.

You definitely should read the aforementioned threads. Burners are not something you can jump into with whatever blingy ship you think might work. They require extremely specific ships/fits to clear, and are so difficult that most require their own unique ship/fit.
