Hi,

Sorry if this has been addressed already (a cursory search didn't turn up much), but I was wondering if highsec level 5s are still viable; that is, do agents in lowsec still offer missions in neighboring 0.5+ systems a fair amount of the time? I'd like to eventually fit a Rattlesnake for that end.

Level 5's are still occasionally in high sec but it is much rarer now. I do not believe they are worth buying a very expensive ship just to run the few that still spawn in high sec. That said, I also believe it wasn't worth while back when every 3rd or 4th mission was in high sec (too much hassle). So take that how you will.

How often they spawn in high sec depends on many factors. Some factions (Amarr) have most of their l V agents in deep low sec, where as others (Caldari) have them in areas much closer to high sec.

I agree with King Rothgar that buying a ship for the exclusive purpose of running level 5 missions is bit of a gamble, however take note that the Rattlesnake is the least expensive pirate battleship on the market for reasons that go beyond this thread.

It is more affordable by at least 50% over the most expensive pirate battleship. In fact it is the only pirate battleship that is less expensive than a Navy Raven!

I insist you buy 2 Rattlesnakes for he price of one Vindicator, Nightmare, Mahariel or Bhaalgorn and laugh all the way to the bank as you put out more than 2x tank and much more gank. Very Happy


Or not.

There are no more high sec Level 5 missions offered by agents, regardless of neighbouring high sec systems. Tyrannis patch fixed it permanently :(

That's false.

King Rothgar is correct on this. There can still be lvl 5 mission occasianally offered by agents close to highsec. I would also agree on that it's not worth buying and fitting a rattler with hopes of making isk from that.

Did you even read the post you linked?

However, while that particular distribution bug was fixed, agents may still occasionally send you to a 0.5 system for a level 5 mission.

Even lvl 4's are appearing more and more in .4 and .5 space. I have not run any missions for months because of this. Not risking losing 500 MIL plus ISK ships to Pirate gankers because a PVE fitted ship is dead meat when doing a mission and jumped by a PVP fitted ship. All that they have to do is pin you and wait for the mission ships to do enough damage to you and finnish you off...

Troll much?

.5 is high sec.

I recently bought Raven Navy Issue, 550 mil isk, and I am running Level 4 missions in high sec.

Why would you be scared of .5 space? That's relatively safe and the only place I really ever mission in.

Cowboy up!
