I've had this wolf hull up in high sec for what seems like ages now. I had bought it back when I had first gotten the skill to fly assault frigates. But I had been unhappy with the various fits I had observed and come up with. So, in a container it sat for many a month.
With Quantum Rise, however, there are some changes in the mechanics of warp scramblers. A scrambler will now turn off an MWD. Also, signature now has much more of an impact in missile combat than speed. So I've finally found a fit I like. After spending a good part of last night running around getting salvage from the market and grabbing modules from various places, I now have a decent wolf fit. We'll see how it performs in combat. May it last longer than most of my combat ships (not likely I know).
One of the advantages of having a nice big BPO collection is that I'm relatively independent from the module/ammo/hull market for T1 equipment. Not you'll note from the mineral market, but definitly from the T1 market. As a rule of thumb, I tend to use pure T1 modules in T1 ships if they are intended to be used and lost. This keeps my expenses down to a very reasonable level. T2 modules go into T2 ships as a rule of thumb. Rigs of course are a different story, I don't realy bother with T2 rigs since they are WAY over priced. The way rigs are structured, they are only realy worth it for larger/more expensive ships. I realy hope one day we get sized rigs.
I know a lot of people tend to go for T2 modules in T1 ships, and indeed I do do this some times. However the truth is the T2 hulls tend to be more survivable than the T1 files. I prefer to put the expensive modules in a more survivable hull. But that's me.
