hi all i was wondering what amarr battleship would be best for lvl4 missions, heres my question the armageddon can use 5 sentries or large drones(correct me if im wrong), but the abaddon only can use 3, but it has 2000 more armor hp, and cost alot more than the armagedon, so is it worth geting the armageddon because its cheaper and can use 5 drones( extra dps)or should i just go for the abaddon with its very nice tanking ability. (i plan on active armor tanking whatever ship i pick)

thanks in advance

Depends on your skills.

Geddon... not so much. It can work, but is more skill-intensive to get T2 heavies or sentries as well as all the other stuff.

Apoc - does not shine until you can use T2 Pulse, but gets the job done.

Abaddon - often has cap issues, but works OK with T1 mega beams (not tachs). Also works pretty well with T2 pulse.

Probably Abaddon, despite the cost. Train Controlled Bursts and the capacitor skills.

All of them have a niche where they are great in PvP.

Pretty sure the new navy geddon is gonna put my abaddon out of a job. I doubt it'll be able to compete with the paladin. But the ability to field both light drones and sentry drones makes me thing the navy geddon is going to be a monster.

so the extra drones space is not worth less tank, i figured that, oh well ill just have to make more isk Wink abaddon's cooler anyway.

lvl 4's, the geddon and abaddon both field similar dps. One gets faster firing, the other gets added %damage/lvl of battleship skill.

While the geddon has more drone space (125 vs 75 mtrs) its not really usable for level 4's missions. eg if fit sentry drones they can do good damage, but get an interceptor with warp scram etc and you cant complete the mission. So while the geddon has more drone space, for doing lvl 4's its not much help unless doing it with or in a support role.

The abaddon has one more mid, 1 less low, +5% resists/lvl so its more armor is actually worth quite a bit more in tanking. Most lvl 4's one need around 1x LAR + resists so either will provide good dps and tanking.

The new navy geddon has more armor, another mid, more cap, bigger shield with slower recharge. It will give it more capacity to tank without doing much for dps. I didn't see if the drone space was raised, if it was could run more drone selection and increase damage (eg if 175 mtr vs 125, room to fit sentry plus smaller drones to chew the interceptors).

Oddly, the biggest threat on lvl 4s is frigs, and they're hard to hit with big guns. I've crap Amarr skills, but good drone skills and can do lvl 4s in an Apoc. Gives you use of five lights to deal with the frigs and tanks well enough to handle the rest.
