Seemed like a fun idea. Will the speed keep me alive or will I die quickly to cruiser/BC guns? Could use any advice you guys have. Thanks.
I've used a Retribution in many L3 missions. However, there have been some that I just wasn't able to complete. Any mission with NPCs that web is dangerous, and sometimes there was a bit of warping out to repair.
I've started to prefer my Harbinger because of the added damage from drones. I also have the option of replacing a Cap Recharger with a Web for faster targets, where the Retribution had only a single Med slot which meant giving up my afterburner.
I really didn't have much trouble with Cruisers and Battlecruisers in the Retribution. I never encountered one of the rare L3 Battleships, but I certainly did fear stasis webs and anything that was faster than my guns at close range... which were usually other frigates with webs.
