Just curious about something, is a Pilgrim capable of downing faction and officer spawns solo? I havn't seen this question answered in any of the threads i've been looking at.

A Pilgrim will most likely not be able to take on an Officer solo.

MAYBE a faction spawn but BS will take awhile unless you fit the Pilgrim with guns.

This is dire news.. What about a covert ops legion?

I've flown the Covert Ops Legion quite a bit and tested it in PVE situations.

It does about the same amount of DPS that the Pilgrim does. Of the two, only a Liquid Crystal Mag Legion would have a chance against Officers.

Hmm was reading that the officers have been made stronger. Does that mean they are nigh impossible to solo with a cloaker?

If you rat with the intention to make isk, then you automatically fail if you rat in anything other than a battlecruiser. If you are however willing to spend money on a Legion just for ratting, then might I suggest you go all out and do it in style? Get a Widow. Sit at belt cloaked. Watch nullsec bear grind the belts. Uncloak. Pound him. Pound belt rats if worthy. Loot. GTFO.

Get your boyfriend to fly that Pilgrim and together with your Widow you'll make the lives of nullsec bears hell. At least until they eventually bait and kill you.

Officers/faction spawns aren't so hard to tank, you can speed tank then if you aren't webbed. You just need the DPS to crack them, an SB will probably be best if it's not a bad spawn.

I don't see why a gun pilgrim wouldn't be able to handle it, slowly but eventually. Might need to overheat a bit.

I like the idea of roaming in a stealth bomber, but I am worried it won't be able to crack the officer spawns, where the REAL money in null sec ratting seems to be.

Mach's and Vindi's w/ Ogre II's and Blasters have a hard time cracking Officer spawns (But they can do it) You'll need at least 1000+ dps (Not sure exactly but it's in the quadruple digits) unless you have an Alpha Mach.

So goodluck trying to break them with anything less than a Cap/Pimped BS

Faction spawns should be no problem. Could take a while to actually pop 'em but surely not a problem to survive per se. I would not dare taking on an officer with my Pilgrim. Altho that's still funny.. I guess it largely depends on which officer and your fit.

Alright. Story time. For SCIENCE!

I have battled and died to Cormack Vaaja in my old Apoc. He flies a huber blasterthron. Never saw that one coming. I landed 55 km away. Loaded Scorch and engaged with extreme prejudice. He responded in kind, rushing to me at 1,100 m/s or so. Soon enough, he's within 10 km, dropped a web and started pounding an intimidating amount of hurt. I had no hope to survive this guy alone. That much was obvious, that quickly. Meanwhile, his two pretentious 1.8 mil buddies did not even bother yellow boxing me... just watching like kittens learning how to hunt from mom. He pumped ~6,600 raw damage into my poor Apoc per volley so even with the fully overloaded tank mods I asploded in no time flat. I soaked maybe 6 volleys, if that, while his own armour barely dropped below 80%.

I declare it's presence in alliance chat. A tengu and a falcon pilot arrived within 2 minutes but Cormack was not in the same belt anymore. They looked for him in other belts while I reshipped to my TD heavy Curse. 6 jumps round trip. The Tengu guy found him as I arrived back in system. Dropped wwwws in fleet, we all warp to him. He declared on coms that he'll have to warp out real soon so we better make it real quick. I am just halfway thru the warp at that point. (!) Thanks god ewar has an effect on him. Major tracking disruption along the falcon's ECM saved the tengu. It took a while to die, even with our combined DPS. Good some really spiffy loot, too. YARRRR!!

TL;DR:
Faction spawns? Surely not a problem
Officiers? Cormack can kick your butt real quick but tracking disruption do work. Im not sure if it will be enough. I think it won't unless you have more than one TD equipped then it might.

I mention only Cormack 'cause it's the only one I know about. I would not take him on with my Pilgrim, tho.
