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.
