Hello,

I was wondering what I would need to run a C1 WH solo with a Tengu? What kind of setup would I need? Are covert ops cloaks necessary for running a C1 WH in case it's inhabited by other players?

I would need 1 high slot for the cloak and 1 for the scanner, so that'd leave me with only 4 slots left for the missile launchers. Would that be enough to run C1 WH sleepers?

Please let me know.
Thank you for your time.

It would be, but it'll be quite slow. Still your tank should be all but immune to most sleeper damage, so all it would take is time.

I'm hoping you have an alt to salvage though:P

Hi,

Thanks for the advice. I totally forgot about the salvaging. I was mostly thinking of finding materials for tech 3 bpc's.

I'd guess that C1 WH's aren't going to provide a lot of isk compared to the higher class WH's. But I'm worried I might end up in some strange far away place if I go too far into WH space.

You only get T3 mats out of salvaging, Radar/Mag sites or gas mining in WH.

The only worthwhile salvage item in WH are Melted Nanoribbons, rare as **** (in a C1 0-4 per site I'm guessing). So running C1's in a Tengu and hoping to make money to pay off your investment is extremely risky. Try C2-3, but you need higher dps there... and a salvaging alt etc.

Get a drake. Tengu for c1's is kind of overkill. Not that it can't be done, but when you get ganked, its only a 50mil loss and not a bil +

A cloak isn't going to do anything for you. You're not there to hide. You're there to farm sleepers. You're not going to hide the fact you're running their sites. You'll show up on dscan as well as the wrecks you create. So, forget the cloak.

A core probe launcher would be much more useful. If they know you're there and they try to keep you from getting out and want to hunt you down then the first thing they're going to do is bubble the wh. If successful, your only way out then is to probe for another hole. I mean, the cloak would serve some use, just not enough to give up the DPS required in order to fit it, imo. If you can't get out and you know there isn't another hole to use as an exit, just log off, come back in a couple of hours.

If you wanted to put on a cloak then, yeah your dps will be enough for the sleepers in a C1. My philosophy is do the sites as quickly as possible.

However, chances are, if you're doing an anomaly then you're never going to know they're coming for you anyway. So, the cloak is useless in those circumstances. If you're wanting to cloak to hide, just exit the wh and hide in hisec. You still have to run whatever gauntlet is now inside that hole in order to salvage.

Overtanked against omni damage, more than enough DPS for a C1, and still has a cloak, probe launcher, salvager/codebreaker/analyzer fitted. I would guess if you have really good scanning skills or a lot of patience you could do without the sister launcher, but it's a good idea on an unbonused ship to save time. The launcher is probably about 40% of the entire cost of the fit though, so if you can get away with a basic probe launcher, then it's a really, really cheap ship.
