Hello,

I've been using Nighthawk and Tengu for a lot of time doing L4's with HM, Nighthawk dish out 620, and Tengu 756 DPS. No tanking issues. However, I'd like to move on and try to do L4's faster. First I looked at Cruise Missiles, but they aren't really a difference from my Tengu's DPS, not much at least, and a Raven couldn't outperform my Tengu, it had to be CNR or Golem. Still, the DPS wasn't attractive.

Then I looked on torps, which has an amazing DPS! And I know a torp-golem is very popular, I also know torps are very skill intensive, but I do have a lot of missile skills. Anyway, enough crap, here's my question! I tried to make a Golem all L5, with max implants and rigs I could only reach around 40KM with my Torps, now I wonder why and how a Golem is faster when it can only reach so far, and since it's a big as slow BS, wouldn't it be irritating and annoying to move it around all the time? Or am I mistaken something completely?

With t2 range rigs and javelins you can reach 60 something, which is plenty for most missions.

You can reach 68km with javs, implants, T2 rigs and skills.

you might check this one, as it gives details on range with torps, plus, drawing aggro is with TPs...

T2 rigs and 5% implants gives ~43-44km (real) with T1/faction torps. Javs go more.

TBH the Golem isn't faster, but it is more profitable because it can loot/salvage on the go. Golems are for making ISK, CNRs are for blitzing missions.

that and most stuff spawns under 60km anyways.
