Im flying an armageddon, and I'd like to take some time off from piracy. So I stumbled upon something called complexes, now that i know what they are, I want to check them out.

So, I can fly Geddon, I can possibly take a buddy with me, who flies raven. I prefer solo action, the payout is bigger you see ;)

I need to know what complex could I be ably to make solo, and what is the worst and best case scenario for the payout?
Also some fitting help and tactiques for the complexes are apriciated!

Banks a thunch!

BSs can enter 5/10s and above. 5/10s are relatively easy but a 6/10 needs a real strong tank or a HAC.

Use a HAC, Get good resistance against kinetic damage, if its a guristas complex no sweat.

You can choose to use faction loot modules on your ship, this will almost render it unbeateble.

But if you dont have the skills, take a friend, in a tanked Raven/Apoc...And a good cruiser/BC lets the tank go in first and agro, jump in after the tank, take out damage dealers and turrets first...rinse and repeat.

about 200mil if you collect all cans, or more realisticly 100mil roughly if you pickup BS cans.

Just remember to bring faction smartbombs to instablast 80% of rats. Oh and all the money is in last gate. The Boss drops something like 30mil in alloys and a 22mil effect.

I tried 5/10 drone hive today... It didnt go too well.

My fittings on mi Geddon were:
HI:
2x Mega beams
4x Dual heavy pulses
2 L-smartys (em, expl)

Med:
3x Cap rechargers

Low:
2x 'Inefficient' Large reppers
2x Energized Adaptive nano
2x 1600mm Plates
2x CPU's
---------------------
Level 1:
First part was easy, my 2x mega beams and 4x dual heavy pulses tore thru the drones, assisted with my own drones, without any problems.

Level 2:
I warp in, lock the sentries and take down 4-5 in no-time at all, a big group of small drones agroed me. Pretty much all of them orbitted in 19kms so no help from my L-smartys. Cap starts to commit suicide, so I have to go easy on the reppers.
Tracking speed of my turrets was on its max, but I killed the drone horde after 15-20mins. Then I'll start to attack the BS, wich just laughed at me, taking no damage at all AND cutting its way thru my 13k of armor.
I had to warp out, I didnt go back anymore...

Poop, what did I do wrong? Fittings please! Im hopeless when it comes to PvE fittings...Sad

that 6/10 is very difficult to solo and impossible to solo the hive queen
the few Drone BS are very tanked out and in the last stage, theres many tanked out drone BS + mom
you need prolly 3 or so pure damage BS to kill mom
shes real nasty

Protocol2 - You took an industrial into a 5/10 complex? Do you mean a transport ship?

The 5/10 complex is not that hard in the first levels but the infested Domi (BS) that the OP mentions is really too much for his build to take down. I did a portion of a 5/10 complex the other week with friends. I was in a Geddon with 7 large lasers and a couple heat sinks and even I couldn't break the tank - not even close. (I didn't have the most damaging lasers though.) We wasted everything else and then turned our attention to the infested Domi when it was the only ship remaining. (So we had 2 BS, assault ship, cruiser.)

The problem I have with 5/10 complexes so far is that you can't make any money off them. By the time we had killed this Domi (barely gotten our feet wet) our cargoholds were full of drone ores. I would like to take an industrial into a 5/10 but the ones in my region specifically do not allow them although I've heard that transport ships can enter 5/10... hence my clarifying question to Protocol2.

Please people -

Get a domi, train your drone skills. Sentry drones = Quick death for BS drones (I use thermals). Tech 2 med = quick death for small drones. and drop on some hardners and T2 L armor reps and you can tank them all day. If you are feeling really insecure, put on a L Cap Booster with CB800's.
