Hey folks. So I have looked over and played with ishkur fits, and I know it can be a pretty sweet AF for pvp and missions and plexing.

What I have not really found is what the max level plex people would think an ishkur could handle? 4/10? 5/10? Etc.

Thanks

Well, the Serpentis Phi-Outpost is a 4/10, and I did it in a Jaguar, but the final battleship took a very very very long time to kill. Basically, the rule of thumb with AF's is, if it can kill all the ships, it can do the plex. With 5x Hob II's, blasters, and max skills, you should be fine for anything sub bs and for low-ehp and non repping BS.

Just remember to never ever ever stop moving, and never fit a MWD over an afterburner.

as the man said ull be in trouble for most of 4/10. 5/10 - forget it, frig damage is frig damage.
Personally wouldn't take even to 3/10 simply cause my vexor is cheaper and will do it much faster.

4/10 is a realistic limit for a single ishkur because of the damage constraint (no problem tanking higher plexes though). (Blaster fit for extra pain - still the BS take a while to drop)

Two ishkurs or an ishkur and a bomber will push up much higher (though still testing to see just how high it will actually go)

You can clear a 4/10 in an Ishkur no problem, just fit neutron blasters and load Void S, the overseer will break. You can also go straight for the faction spawn in a Serpentis Vigil. I don't know about 5/10 though.

Cleared many a 6/10 gurista plexes with Ishkur. keep track or ur transversal velocity and u should be fine. It takes time though

Confirming an AF and a bomber works wonders. I forget if it was a 7 or 8/10 that I did with this combo, but it fixes the damage problem. AF kills small stuff, SB kills BS, either one gets battlecruisers. I had to kite a lot more to tank it, though, so a rail ishkur might do better.

Thanks all

I am working towards and Ishtar. And for serious stuff I could take a myrmidon. I was thinking the Ishkur could be fun too, especially if there was a chance to find some pvp at the same time
