Might be a stupid question with that noctis released. But is it the most suitable ship for salvaging at current? I can imagine that a Max pimped out hurricane or something will do quite well aswell?

And I can't seem to find it in evemon for some reason... the noctis, that is.

Nothing can compare with 80km tractors, 10 targets and 1460m3 (3k with modules) cargo bay. Tractors are also faster too, so you can mwd while collecting stuff.

I see no reason to use anything else, unless you're trying to salvage while rats are still up and targeting you. If there's a real risk of losing it via low/null shenanigans, dessies are better, as a cane is not that cheaper compared to noctis.

Edit: EVEMon is outdated at the moment. Use EFT or EVEHQ or grab the RC release from Battleclinic.

TBH, the Noctis can fit a pretty awesome tank if that's how you're using it. I mean not enough to stop people in low/null, but definitely enough to laugh at some aggro in an L4.

The only reason I can see not to use in high-sec, is if it's currently Hulkageddon since they're a target this time around (i.e. don't fly it sometime next week).

Noctis is the best salvager there is.

just dont take it into low/null, use a catalyst for that (mainly so your not out much if its blown up)

The noctis is best at mission cleanup where rat respawns are a non-issue.

This setup tanks 539 damage omni. (Really 434 EM/Therm, and way more Explosive) (Realistically, you'd probably use T1 rigs and PDUs to avoid nerfing your capacitor. 305/237 in that setup. 337/271 in a still cap stable hybrid setup.)

I fit my noctis with an ab and sebo and follow behind the mission runner. It's so damn quick I can usually have the room cleaned bare before the next room is even remotely finished.
