And we get some class 4 action going

So BBW has a nice class 4 connected to it when I log in Monday evening. Since most of those online were either killing pirates in low sec or wandering lost in high sec, I decide to go and run it down. I proceed to jump in my cov-ops and chase down the various sites in the class 4. 3 ladar, 2 grav a mag and a radar later, I decide to kick off the resource sites.

Now the mag, radar and various combat sites are a little beyond my meager tanking abilities atm. Even with the Loki. But it sure made short work of all the resource site spawns. Note that kicking off and killing all 5 resource sites is about the same as a single class 2 combat site in dificulty. The trick here is to do multiple sites BEFORE coming back to salvage since I'm trying to save some wormhole mass for later operations that evening. So, I kick em all off (this refers to warping to a resource site in order to start the spawn cycle) and start killing. It's an eclectic mix of basic and medium sleeper ships. Once I get thru all of them, I go back and grab my salvager, salvage them all. Then I decide to tackle one of the gas sites and go get my gas miner and an alt with a hauler.

Meanwhile my alliance one of my alliance pilots started trying to solo one of the combat sites in a Nighthawk. I do believe his adrenaline fix for the evening was achieved. Getting out of a scrammed situation with 14% armor left in a Nighthawk is not a comfortable feeling. Good thing the sleepers like drones as much as they do (tech 2 drones are cheaper than Nighthawks). He then organized an RRBS gang to go after things properly. This worked much better. I was unable to join as my only armor RRBS was not setup correctly for the type of operation involved AND was back in the base in high sec. Not worried about it too much I'll eventually get one in here.

As we start working with RRBS gangs in neibouring wormholes we will however need to start paying attention to wormhole mass limits. Haulers and smaller do not usualy need to worry about the number of transits to change ships they make. But once you start taking small squadrons of battleships thru, mass limits realy start hitting.

How did the RR BS fleet fare against the sites in the class 4 w-space? How many BSs did you bring? My corp has been doing class 3's with shield transfer gangs. Our next move will be into class 4's.

Heh. My old corp learned about RR BSes the hard way. One Hype, a Drake, and a Myrm all instapopped was not a fun night lol

Letrange said...

@anon, as I recall it was 4 BS one of which was a Scorpion. Although everyone involved needs to work on their fits a bit.

We've been running a couple of 4 person RRBS gangs for about two weeks in class 3's and it's been a bit overkill. Team one usually have an Armageddon, 2 Domi's and a Scorpion. Team two is 2 Megathrons, a Scorpion and Tempest. In both cases, the Scorpion is buffered and everyone is dual repping. In addition, we have a couple of Drake pilots that seem blithely oblivious to incoming damage, managing to survive concentrated Sleeper BS fire and give the RRBS's a chance to regenerate their cap. The Drakes are also awesome at their main job - Frigate Removal. They also spend a lot of time talking about 75% resists, 700 dps tanks and other non-sense. :) [NB - They are also "tolerated" for their Armor Warfare Linkage.

Letrange said...

I suspect Strategic cruisers will also be good for the drake's roles (although there we're talking 82%+ resists)

I'm really looking forward to getting into wormhole space. But since I only started but a month ago ... I have so much to do before then.

But do enjoy your posts on the subject. Keep them coming!

Cheers.

@Jamenta: you sound like LCSC material :) Feel free to drop Let or I a mail in-game.

jamenta said...

Ha ha! If I only knew what the acronym meant, and man have I seen a lot of acronyms in my real life and virtual life.

But i'm most likely not available, too busy building on my 1 man corp (and yes, i'm keep'n it that way for now!)

Look up my blog (The Owl and the PussyCat) if you want some info on wormhole operations in a class 4 wormhole. We are currently int he process of moving in deeper to more dangerous and hopefully more lucrative 'holes.

jamenta said...

Doh! LCSC is Letrange's Corp.
*slinks off in embarrasment*

jamenta said...

I am impressed with Letrange's BLOG, style of leadership, organization, list goes on and on ... including alliance members.

Does the alliance allow 1 man corps to join? What would be criteria?

Listen to me, I haven't even formed my Corp...
