Hey, just came back to eve after over a year and a half away. im looking the best setup to solo lvl 4 missions. i used to always do them in the dominix, now they have brought the faction domi out ive never used it and dont currently have enough money for it. so would need to be standard ships for now.

i can fly gallente ships bs and hacs, got t2 drones and can use t2 large railguns and t2 large blasters.
whats going to get me through missions the quickest a domi setup or a megathron setup

also what should i be aiming towards getting to run missions when i have more money? is faction domi king? are the pirate faction ships worth a look?

cheers

I really like the Navy Dominix, but most people don't consider it much of an upgrade. The main limitation is the lower calibration, but I only ever fit one SDA anyway.

A nice long term ship is the Machariel.

Ishtar is good if you like taking naps while running serpentis missions.

For "active" as opposed to afk missioning, train up T2 sentries and fit a couple of sentry damage augmentor rigs on your Domi, plus a couple of Omnidirectional Tracking Links. If you add T2 Large railguns and sacrifice tank a bit for 2 or 3 magstabs, most L4 missions can be done pretty quickly in a Sentry Domi set up like this. It's not the fastest option in EVE, but it's about as fast as you can go with Gallente.

Beyond that, for ultra fast L4 missioning, you're looking at cross training for a Caldari Navy Raven, or Machariel, or Rattlesnake or something like that.

Help yourself to a Marauder. In your case the Kronos.
Just make sure that you tracking and gunnery skills are
top notch.

After that have a look at the Machariel and the Vindicator.
While the Vindi is a great PVP ship and uses Hybrids.
The Macha will open up the FOTM world of Projectile weapons.

Or go for the Minmatar Marauder.. its up to you.

I use a dominix for level 4s.

Highs: 2x tractor beams, 3 salvagers, 1 medium beam laser
mids: 5x cap recharger IIs
lows: 2x large armor rep II, 4x hardener IIs, 1x cap relay II
rigs: cap control circuit, auxillary nano pump, nanobot accelerator

for angel and drone missions i use 3 hardeners and an EANM II. perma tanks as long as you dont run the salvagers and tractors at the same time as the reps.

change drones to suit mission

Over tank, undergank. In other words, afk variant again Sad
2op: Start from basic rail domi and after that upgrade to whatever u prefer. Mega is fine too if your rail skills are better than drone skills.
Also have you considered ass plunge? I mean Hyperion, sorry Laughing

Yup. I have pretty much the same setup and it takes ages to kill stuff. I often bring out my 'salvaging' account along in a drake to do some additional shooting. She does more DPS than my drones (T2 lights and meds, T1 heavies).

I'm currently training towards Minni BS's, going for a Mach in the long run. I'm pretty fed up with drones.

You are flying a drone boat without t2 sentries or ogres. No kidding you are getting outdamaged....you are missing 40% of you output flying it like a ghetto hype
