Burning a Hull

I'm burning through the skies Yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman out of you
Queen - Don't Stop Me Now

I've been killing Serpentis out in 0.0 for a few days now. Lets take a look at my Harpy. Tanking is keyed against Serpentis.

Lets also look at what I hope to use eventually:

This is a modification on an earlier build that had about half the DPS but double the tank against Serpentis.

I'll have to kick up Advanced Weapons Upgrades to 5 and Hybrid Turret Rigging up to 4 to get this to fit. I'll need to use the +5% powergrid implant as well. For those of you that wish to take issue with the use of void ammo, calling it unrealistic to base DPS figures on it, remember that I'm in a frigate shooting at cruisers, battlecruisers, and battleships.

My experiences with it so far are good.

Strategy is mostly straightforward. Ignore everything but the battleships(or battlecruisers if that's all you can find). Approach them with booster and MWD running. Once you hit about 10k, kick off the MWD(unless it's very near the end of a cycle). Pull into an orbit of 2250(with your MWD off, it'll settle into about 2600 Meters) and fire away. Watch local and wait.

I stocked up on nothing but Void before I left, but there are a few elite frigates that give me a bit of a problem by webbing me and then sitting at 9.5k. With maxed skills I can hit at over 11k with Iron charges. Right now they'd be just inside my range if I had any Iron charges. That brings me to the next issue.

I'm wondering if someone who flies transport ships would be willing to do a resupplying run out to where I am. I'm not that deep in 0.0 really. I'll pay you for your trouble. I think a single giant container ought to do the job. I'll load up the Ammo into the container in the nearest high sec system. You do your own scouting and you'll need to be online with me to give me the bookmark(or you can just fleet me and we'll go to the location together). Payment is upon my receipt of the goods. You'll need to be able to anchor the container. If you're interested, start a conversation with me ingame. Don't bother sending a mail, because we'll need to be online at the same time.

See you in space.

PS: This is Monday's Update a bit early. See you on Tuesday.

  1. Resupply run out to a pirate in nullsec?

    That sounds like a BRILLIANT idea.

    You made your bed, now lie in it.
