Please Read before posting:

Im showing you what ships can do when the time is right. You need to put these setups in yourself and play with them. This is why they are showed with overload + boosters.

A lot of personal preference on setups, minor though they are, the odd module(s) change for each setup would be tailored your play style and situation, please keep that in mind when posting.

The setups posted are good solid foundations from which to build from.

I cant post setups for all ships, all tactics, all styles of play, would be here all week else. Just take it with a pinch of salt and try to understand what im trying to do.

As ever, make these setups your own and play with them. Im here to try and help you.

Finally mandatory / shameless video promotion because it does showcase setups shown below and tactics used, this is Part 1 of 4 uploaded lovingly to YouTube. 2, 3 and 4 will be linked in the side.

Looking for some Caldari or Gallente or Amarr Setups? -Click respective race.

Setups for Minmatar:

Rifter

Claw

Jaguar

Stabber

Bellicose

Rupture

Vagabond

Hurricane with Single Rep + Plate

Hurricane Plate

Hurricane Sheild Buffer

Typhoon *soon to be obsolete*

Active tanked Tempest *one of my golden oldie setups with a slight facelift*

Tempest Shield buffer

My LOL Triple Rep Tempest

Tempest Standard Plate fit

Maelstrom Station Games

Maelstrom Solo *Expensive implants really suggested*

With the Tempest, it is a very hard ship to make work, its the one ship on my EFT that i have over 27 fits for more than any other i really have tried to make it work, we shall see when Dominion hits if it will improve what is a hard ship to fly.

Maelstrom is again quite difficult to fly solo without crystals that can free up another mid slot. Switching out the MWD for more tank or tank again is down to you entirely. This should hopefully get you started.

Anyways hope you enjoy.

You sure do love your Trimarks. Why slow down every Minnie ship when one of their biggest advantages is speed? I think I'd go with Ambit's over Trimarks on a few of your fits and I also wouldn't ever want to fly that Stabber fit solo... a Nanofiber and at least one neut would be my preference instead of the launchers and DC. I don't know why I'm criticizing your Mini fits though when I don't even fly the race :)

Good stuff as always kess. Can you do Gallente next?

Fair point on the stabber, but its a cheapo fit. The thing with speed on ships is that Warp scramblers make the benefit kind of moot. Its not that i think its isnt an advantage its just very hard to hold range and still get a kill. Your prey will either run, or kill you because you didnt keep range or have enough hit points.

I can indeed do Gallente and Amarr. Im looking forward to Gallente ive so many fits it will make your head 'splode!

Oddly enough I have most of these fits loaded into EFT already. I think I might have been following your previous fitting posts a little too well Kessah. Laughing

Great fits as always for people looking to solo in the face of one-on-one combat being pronounced dead. Thanks for posting!

EDIT: Wow, these threads are hate magnets for some reason.

Hmm, not sure I'm a fan of that vagabond setup;

This is my setup

[Vagabond, norwood]

Dual 180mm AutoCannon II, Barrage M
Dual 180mm AutoCannon II, Barrage M
Dual 180mm AutoCannon II, Barrage M

I prefer 3rd gyro, the extra hp from the damage control is better served by being more maneuverable. Shield rig vs ambit is a matter of taste I'd say.

As far as rigs go I used to used to swear by ambits, but with changes to falloff I'm thinking about dropping one nanofiber, sticking on a tracking enhancer and using polycarbs, since you don't need ambits you do away with the grid penalty associated with their fitting allowing something like this:

[Vagabond, dominion?]

220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M

I think you forget your roots my impeccably rude friend. Not everyone see these fits as obvious.

Bad form Gneeznow. You were new once. Neutral

Will also add im helping alot of the newer chaps on Reddit, who havent a clue where to begin on how solo.

I ran the numbers on this compared to the pre-dominion Vagabond that I use (which are basically the same fits as yours, only a DC in place of the nanofiber).
New 220s + TE compared to Old D180s+2x ambits have slightly more dps, range, and even more tracking, so they're basically better in every way. Cool
Replacing a nano with 2x polycarbons also gains you a little bit of speed with about the same EHP (although you lose a tiny bit of agility).

Overall Dominion was a slight overall boost to the Vagabond which is nice; it's just as fast now but will be a little better at bringing the DPS.

Understand what your trying to achieve, however i did, in all fairness say:

So the setup i posted could be better suited to Low Sec, perhaps holding sentry fire for alittle bit longer to kill that barge coming through.

All i ask is people try as see what im trying to do with each fit. If you don't get it, i will kindly respond to your questions. Smile

Stabbers that need to come so close to scram range die horribly. And if you do intend/need to get that close shouldn't you have a scram, especially as you're only going to be able to kill frigates (solo). You really need ambits imho. Dunno what this ship is going to be good for after the ambit stacking nerf.

Shield tanked hurricane:

3x Gyro II
2x Tracking Enhancer II
Damage Control II

10MN MWD I
Scram
Invul II
LSE II

6x 425mm AC II
2x HM II (no web or TP - may as well use heavies in my opinion)

5x Hobgoblin II

3x Extender rigs

This is what I would fly post Dominion for shield gank cane.

If you fit a scram, you will need to be within 10km. I suppose when your being chased you can hammer away and hope they dont warp in time, but i feel the align time of 5.6 seconds *faster than a cruiser* would be more beneficial.

I'm certainly open to the increased agility. I was thinking more in line with some flexibility in range with the added falloff of the tracking enhancer. My rule of thumb is to be within half of the falloff number to get roughly 80% of my dps on target. With TE I can hit that 50% number further out to the scram range.

I suppose two nanos would be useful too - should be able to go over 2000 m/s then.

Hehe, that triple Tempest is worth a try.

I've been very succesfull with the shielbuffer cane and fight at falloff. I also have some speed modules fitted in the lows to keep distance from other targets easier or just GTFO when ****s hits the fan. I've got alot of pleasure in this ship.

Kessah: Je t'aime! i.e. Thanks for sharing. As a (whiny) Minnie, I've been wondering how to go about setups after the patch. This will help a lot.

Edit: Love the EHP on the Bellicose. That ship is somewhat underrated, I feel, as it has a great surprise factor and, as you point out, enough slots to make for interesting fits.

The ehp on the rupture fitting is off by about 16k. When I put the tank into eft, i got about 34k ehp.

Sorry, I wasn't quite clear. Your fit has too much ehp (its 50k). When I tried HG slaves in eft, i could only get in the mid 40s. The closest I got to the 50k was with an emp only damage profile (the highest armor resistance).

Ah damn, my bad lads, i had slaves on it. I used to have a full set awhile back and i must have forgotten to take them off when i screenshotted the image.

Its still a good fit though.

Appreciate that lads,

Ive been courteous, polite, friendly and helpful even though ive been lambasted, sworn at and basically spoken to in such a ****ty manner that at this point, im starting to lose my patients with long drawn out conversations with a single specific fit.

Its like as though because i didnt mention their particular fit they make a reaction similar to if i had come into there house on Christmas morning and just took a wizz on their tree/presents.

If it were real life it wouldnt surprise me if i would have been spat on.

Trolls make your point out in the open so people will read it and see what works for them. Thats all, im not getting into drawn out conversations about why 'this specific module is teh w1n'

You have yourself a pleasant day.

Some good fits there, id be tempted to make afew changes to a couple of them, i perfer the 400mm plate claw with neut myself but i guess both fits have there benefits. Im also a fan of using 180s 2 tracking enchancers and a tracking rig on the vaga, you get great tracking, 37km falloff with barrage and 25km with rf emp, the dps is less than yours but its great for killing support ships while traveling at high speeds.

Its nice to see people doing threads like this because its a great help to new players, i used to read these forums all the time when i first started playing to help me get ideas on to how to fit ships, so ignore all the negative comments mate.
