Hey

So I've been living out of a nice quiet C1 for about a month. It has been fun although at times it bottoms out and can be boring waiting for new sites to spawn. Often when this occurs I will just shuttle out to my mission system and run 4's for a few days or something.

The thing is, this C1 has a static low sec. So sometimes I get a really crappy exit deep in the far reaches of low sec. Or sometimes I get bored of missions.

I do enjoy exploration though. So I thought branching out into low sec exploration could work.

I am a relative noob, so I am limited on the ships I can fly. I'm gallente, with lots of my SP in drones. So I can fly the following ships well; vexor, myrmidon, dominix.

Obviously a dominix is out as you can't get one in or out of a C1. So I'm not sure which of the other two would work well.

Also. I do have a second account, which is also a relative noob. But on that account my toon can fly a covert ops with pretty good scanning skills and a drake. So I would expect to use him to scan for sites. I could also dual box, although that makes things trickier when you get jumped.

So I guess between a drake, vexor, or myrmidon, any thoughts on which would work best? Any thoughts on fits? I understand I may not be able to run the hardest sites, which is ok.

Honestly, all three of those will do fine for Radar and Mag sites. For combat sites, you'll want either a dual-rep Myrm (Sansha/Blood) or the Drake. It is extremely doable though, assuming you have the proper support skills.

Thanks,

Yes I have a strong armor tank on the myrmidon. I use a dual rep setup in the WH. The drake has a good shield tank, although I am still working on the missile skills, so the dps is a bit low (only about 270dps)

Read Mio's thread on DSP and how they are used. Then go and hunt 4/10 DED plexes.

Mio's Thread

Myrmidon + Covert Ops will do fine. The Blood 4/10 however is best run in a passive Drake or anything that can snipe @50Km. Drones are a bit annoying to use in this plex.

For what you want to do, this situation would actually be beneficial, i think. Also - go with the Myrm (and maybe your other account as scanner along) - lowsec sites will allow battlecruisers/battleships so that is okay.

Exactly!

I figure it can be something else to do with the resources that pop up.

And if it isn't some quiet deep low sec system, I can pretend to site run in my pvp setup

Drones and guns to taste/skills.

If you scan with another ship and find no radar sites, replace the codebreaker with a web. Idea of this fit is that in 4/10s and similar combat sites a single repper is enough if you don't rush head first into rat optimals. Cap stable with 1 repper and AB running. If you need moar tank because suddenly pirate, you have the cap booster and 2nd repper.

Now obviously specialized PvE and PvP fits perform better in their niches, but I think the Myrm can actually pull the dual-purpose thing off very nicely.

basically my fit, except no codebreaker and a web instead. My scan alt has all that gear on his covops.
