Hi there. I'm interested in training for a T3 Strategic Cruiser and using it as a solo exploration ship. I'd like to be able to, well, explore without being as fragile as a dedicated scanning ship. Using the scanning and cloaking subsystems, I fully understand that I'm not going to be soloing difficult plexes or anything, but that's not what this is about. My Machariel brings in all the ISK I need. I just want to be able to scan a site down and not have to run away at the first sign of NPC pirates.

Most of my skills are in Gallente and Minmatar, so the Loki and the Proteus would be easy to get into. However, as my shield skills are already there, getting into a Tengu would only require me training up my missile skills (which is never a bad thing).

If you were going to build a T3 Cruiser with an expanded probe launcher, covert ops cloak and possibly even a codebreaker and/or analyzer, which ship would you choose, how would you fit it and why?

Battleclinic doesn't have much advice for me, likely because this is somewhat unorthodox / inefficient. I've been playing around in EFT for days but I've not yet found a fit that says to me "this is the one".

Thanks in advance! Very Happy

It depends where you'll be exploring.

Very little of it would be high-sec. Mostly low-sec and possibly some null-sec.

There's a ton of threads on this very subject...

However, Loki or Tengu. The approximate DPS I get with an exploration fitted Loki or Tengu is around 400. You can do up to 6/10s, although the Blood and Sansha 6/10s are a pain as it takes forever to kill the commander plus they have the TDs (and Neuts for the Blood).

The loki would have (High) 5x425 + cloak + launcher, (Mid) MWD + Small SB + Invul + whatever (code/anal mods for sites otherwise more tank), (Low) 3xGyro + 1xTracking. You would have the Locus and Covert subsytems and the other subsystems you can work out easily enough for yourself. ;) The tengu is similar only with HAMs.

This is the Loki fit I've been training up to for. You will notice, no cloak. This is because I've found safespotting to be just as effective as a cloak, as long as you hit d-scan every time your probes are scanning. If you want to do exploration in nullsec, I recommend sticking to your home turf, because an interdiction nullifer covops cloak Loki does not a plex runner make. For lowsec, this should do you just fine.

As someone else who thinks using dedicated scanning ships and then bringing in big guns instead of putting a scanner on your big guns is silly, I wish you well. And may you rob many plexes out from under the noses of silly, silly Buzzard pilots, as I have.

What i ment was, who are you going to be fighting. Tengu's amazing, but versus Guristas, Serpentis and Angels to a degree. Versus Sanshas or Blood Raiders you'd rather be in a Legion. What i can tell you is you can disregard everything iKill Giants said, because he has an Analyzer, a Codebreaker on a 2 bilion ship without a cloak, but i'm sure you're aware of it.

If it'll make you wee your pants to be flying a ship without your magical safety button, I've also put together a fit that's interdiction and cloak fit. At least it's better than the other (cloaky) alternatives, I guess.

Cab stable @ 50% with 1 booster off, giving you 266 omni tank. Both on is 456 tank, combined with speed tank is more than enough and lasts for 5m 27s.

If you're doing mostly lowsec the interdiction nullifier is pointless (ha), I'd swap it out for a Fuel Catalyst and stick a tracking enhancer in the new lowslot.


And my Codebreaker and Anaylzer are on the original fit because I prefer not to have to redock to do certain sites, especially when the option of redocking is sometimes not available. I'd say it's more of a preference thing if it weren't for the fact that it's damn useful and that the tank really doesn't need more slots. It's already cap stable for 8 minutes w/ codebreaker and analyzer off. If you don't want that, OP, you can fit whatever you like. I have a fit as well that's two medium booster stable with ungodly tank, but it's also cloakless.

Safespot and dscan for combat probes, people. Save yourself a hislot and some DPS.

It's simply put idiotic to fly a solo exploration ship without a cloak through hostile space, the first camp you'll find will **** you, i could perhaps understand a disposable ship doing that, but not a 2b T3. Add to that the fact you're fitting an Analyzer and a Salvager on an exploration ship. Do some exploration before posting in an exploration topic.

I do exploration in AFs and Faction frigates through lowsec and C1/C2 wormholes. I've made hundreds of millions off this profession, and I have never died to another player while doing it. And I typically do it solo, sometimes with a mate for wormholes or the occasional nullsec plex.
Oh, and all my frigates have pre-fit analyzer and codebreaker. They would have salvager along with probe launcher, but the ones I fly lack the utility highslots I'm afraid. Work like a charm.

If you wanted to criticize me, that was not the way to do it. Maybe on lack of T3 experience, but not like that.

OP, I hope you find my fits at least worth a shot. If you want to take extra precautions while you earn back the money you spent on the ship, I can agree with that, but I personally have found being ready for mag and radar sites at all times very timesaving and profitable.

Fly a t3 without a cloak/scout in anything than high sec and see it blown up within 1h.
Fly it without a nullifier/scout in null sec and see it decloaked by a bubble camp.

Since this thread is about solo flying we can scrap the scout.

If you're recommending magneto sites then you've got a long way to learn exploration.
Though I've heard that amarr/minmatar sites do drop occasionally intact armor plates but rarely. Caldari is even worse and gallente magneto sites are totally crap.

Radars drop decryptors/ship data BPCs which can sell for a good price. They might fill your wallet a little while you're having a bad luck on combat sites.
So +1 on the codebreaker. 7 mid slots on a tengu are plenty enough to fit a codebreaker.

For the sake of arguing with someone new:

The only thing that gives me pause for safety in lowsec is align time on warping from a gate. From there I typically make a safespot and dscan for probes, making new safespots and cycling through them if I see combat ones. This has worked well enough in a frigate, and has no reason not to work in a cruiser. It also makes sense to stick to low-traffic areas to begin with, which is something I already do to pre-emptively avoid combat. Though I admit, the extra second of align time in a Loki worries me a bit.

And if I were to fly a Loki in nullsec, I would have an interdiction nullifier fitted. No disagreement there, it's fairly stupid not to. Cloak as well.

I know Magneto sites have a reputation for having low profit margins, but I at the very least find them worth doing. I've tried them of all four racial types and with the volume of t1 salvage you get in lowsec, you'll usually make about... 3mil a site, I'd say. And yes, they do drop t2 salvage fairly commonly, and I've gotten some intact shield emitters from Guristas ones that were worth a few mil. Can't really comment on the quality of Serpentis, I don't remember what I got from those. In any case, if you've only heard about what mag sites can drop, maybe you should try a few before condemning them. True, it's only a bit of money, but sometimes they drop something nice.

The ship data BPC's, Incognito Data Interfaces and Estoteric and all those, I haven't found to be worth much. Though I did find this one that was worth 45 mil, but I don't remember what it's called. Decryptors are the main money maker, and the datacore drops I just grab for the sake of it.


You see, it's making me curious that just posting a fit with a magneto equipment has brought down so much criticism that people are questioning my experience, when that experience is the very reason I'm fitting it as I am.

Let's break this down:

Quote:

Yes, we were talking exactly about that.

Quote:
Though I admit, the extra second of align time in a Loki


And how about signature size? Do you know how locking mechanism works? Cruiser sized ships will point you, more so with a sensor booster.
And we are still talking about t3 here, not frigates.

Quote:

I did a few times. And everytime I cursed myself for trying. Why?

Quote:

This. This is horribly low. Belt ratting will earn more and then you won't have to take the time actually scanning the site. There is a reason why most experienced explorers say it's not worth the time and the wasted slots.

Quote:
The ship data BPC's, Incognito Data Interfaces and Estoteric and all those, I haven't found to be worth much. Though I did find this one that was worth 45 mil


Actually that was the ship data interface. If you can build the stuff those sell for 15-40m a piece depending on racial type and market conditions.
If you can't even make differences between the different loots why are you giving advices?

Quote:

Because we know from far more experience than what you have that they are not worth the time and effort. I know, been there done that.
If you're exploring in a frigate (t1 or t2 doesn't matter) you have no idea about the really valuable loots.

tbh i could see flying around lowsec in such a fit - but not completely solo, at least have some sort of scout to see the other side of the gate you are going to jump through. I would say most of the time (once you're in low and depending on the area) there's nothing at gates - but if you blindly stumble on the occasional gang on the other side, which will happen if you do it solo, then you're dust most likely.

About the whole scanning while at safespots, sure why not, but if you're the kind of person that often is on a probe count approaching 200 in a session, then this sure would be a chore. ;)

It's probably 'safer' to fly covert and then dock up and refit if you have found a site that warrants it ...

Personally when I did low sec exploration (which included some null for escalations) I would fly around with the cov ops sub. (I flew tengu though so I do not know the subs for the other ships that much.)

I would also carry an AEB in my hold so that when I found combat plexes I would station up and switch. This also allowed me to ditch the code breaker for an extra mid slot. And also a nullifier in the hold for when null was necessary.

I also used the augmented capacitor reservoir for the extra launcher and adaptive shielding for the extra utility high slot. Tank was not an issue ever so I did not need a kick ass booster or capacitor. (pulse is your friend) The extra high allowed me to keep the salvager to use on the overseers and other faction spawns. You can get some nice pretties off them now and again.

So travel mode low sec was Fuel Catalyst, Dissolution, Covert, Augmented, Adaptive.
Combat plex mode low sec was Fuel Catalyst, Dissolution, AEB, Augmented, Adaptive.
Null sec travel was Nullifier, Dissolution, Covert, Augmented, Adaptive.

And null combat was dependent on the situation, sometimes you have a station, most of the time you don't. With no scout it can be risky to travel to a station. With a decently fast align time I would sometimes just leave the nullifier on and put the aeb on and go for it.

I would argue again that my lack of experience isn't in exploration, but in T3's, if you were to pick a place to criticize me. As it is, I think that the disagreement between Larton and your ideas and mine is a difference in preference. I prefer not to have to stop moving and dock up, you prefer not to take the risks that requires. And if you'd approached that civilly, I'd respect you a fair bit more.
Instead, you've attacked my suggestions and viewpoints as entirely stupid and doubted my experience and knowledge to the point of condescension.
I'll address your points one last time, then there's no point in returning to this topic for another slap in the face.

Signature size - Yes, I do know how the locking mechanics works, but I admit I wasn't thinking of sig radius when I made my points on aligning at a gate. I'll look into modifying my fit to compensate for this, you may win the cloak disagreement after all.

Magnetometrics - I still find them worth doing. As a wandering explorer, I have to watch my remaining cargospace, and salvage has some of the best ISK/m3 density out there. A little more never hurts. And as for 3 mil being horribly low, maybe I'm just greedy, but I'll still do a mag site with a billion in my wallet.

Ship Data Interface BPCs - I've only ever found a few of them, and they all look alike. You might as well expect me to remember the name of every decryptor.


I'm glad you have a method of exploring that you're comfortable in, but next time, try to be a bit more constructive when pointing out what you consider flaws in the methods of others.
OP, I again wish you luck and hope this argument has helped you in some way.

I have been constructive:

Traveling - cloak fit or scout. Else you die.

Magnetos - low ISK/hour. Yes high ISK/m3 but that doesn't matter for me. From this point on everyone should decide on their own. There's no point on arguing about the low ISK/hour rate of magnetos, it's a fact.

Actually, there are exceptions for radar and ladar sites too: not all radar sites give decryptors, some give drug related stuff (BPCs, skillbooks) though those are null sec only.
There some non-cloudy combat ladars where you actually need hacking equipment. Those give drug BPCs (mostly worthless) and skillbooks too (Nanite control ftw.).

Quote:
Ship Data Interface BPCs - I've only ever found a few of them, and they all look alike.


That's where you're wrong.
There are 3 types of data interfaces for every race:
- Data interface (needed for t2 module/ammo invention)
- Tuner data interface (needed for t2 rig invention)
- Ship data interface (needed for t2 ship invention)

All 3 have different icons. Google them up for pictures.
Tuner data is crap and sold under production cost.
Data interface has very little profit on it.
Ship data interface: large profit per run (profit varies largely between races, minmatar being the most expensive and caldari the cheapest). It is the rarest too.


So it's like this:

DED complexes > Expedition sites > Radar > Combat ladar >>>>>>> Magneto

Grav sites and cloudy ladars are different, they need to be mined/harvested so they are a different cathegory. If you're a lone explorer they worth exactly 0.

Could you scan all sites without the locus sub?
IMO it's better to have the locus, dissolution sub is not a must to have, you can do sites without it.

However if you want to blitz sites like Minor Annexes you'd better have a decent shield booster (Pithum c-type should be enough).

Remark: you should carry pirate tags like silver/gold/crystal etc. to pass through the first acc. gate fast without killing any ships (remember though that if you get scrammed while warping the gate locks down again). In the second room concentrate on killing the overseer and the faction spawners (that's where you need a good tank, without a faction booster you'll die in a minor serpentis annex). With this you can do a site like 4-5 times faster. Speed is at utmost importance in low sec or hostile null. In high sec too but that's different.

Without a cloak in low sec, if you jump into a gatecamp with, lets say sensor boosted HIC, they will get you before you warp and if you're webbed as well, well, good luck to get back to that gate.

Best solution is to travel with the cloak and emergent locus analyzer and swap equipment in your cargo at the nearest station when you find a decent site to run

Forget ISK/hr. Given your fit is a giant pinata that can't safely move systems, you'll be looking at ISK per day.

You can get the same stats with a Proteus which fits the interdiction, locus and covert subsystems, in practice would be a bit slower to apply the DPS (blaster fit) but nevertheless the one aspect of PVE where the Proteus is competitive (some even claim it to be excellent) vs other T3s is exploration.

Ishtar is good and also much cheaper. Just does the job slower than a tengu.

If you are using active tank use the Amplification Node defensive sub. +50% vs. +25%.

Switch one flare rig to a rigor rig. Also the flare and rigor rigs should be t2, they give more to your dmg and they should be cheaper too.

Also this fit is for omni dmg. You should specialize it against the rats you want to fight. That tank would melt in a minor annex imo.

If you're going in by yourself, you need a codebreaker, if not for the Radar sites, then for the Ladar sites. Also one thing that's the same as it is in L4 missions, you don't have drones. I'd strongly suggest fitting Rigor rigs so that you can deal with frigates and cruisers, you'll mostly be fighting those. For tougher sites like an Annex you'll have to refit. As for your resistances, i'd really consider not doing Sanshas in a Tengu.

Xyolon, if you're not aware, an amplification subsystem cuts a launcher slot while giving more unnecessary tank.
