Ok i've put about a month or two into this game so far and i'm loving it. I'm sitting pretty in a Vexor now with 3 medium nos and a couple of med blasters. Got shield love, some armor, my stasis web and a warp jammer. Soon my drone skill will be at rank 5 so i'm getting confident enough to start a nice, probably short lived pirate campaign. I was curious how the security system works. If i venture into .4 and pod a bunch of guys, am I going to get cop smacked when I head back into high sec areas? Will other players be able to attack me in high sec areas due to my low sec?

Oh and on a side note, any feedback on how the Vexors handle in pirating is appreciated. I'm using 5 medium scout drones as my basic attack force, i've been webbing people hitting em with the 3 nos and sicking the drones and med turrets on em. Good strategy? Any feedback is appeciated.

I wasn't going to reply to this but then I saw your sig and thought you worthy :P

Vexor is a great pirating vessel... and your setup sounds "ok" don't know what you meant about having shield love though, don't need it on a Vex.

Go and have a play in .4 if thats what you wanna do, can do a fair bit before your sec status gets too low, just don't pod people and you should be fine. As long as you stay above -1.9 sec status you can still go anywhere.

That's what I was hoping to hear mate. :) Thanks a million. Oh and by shield love I meant a medium shield booster. Should I only rock plates?

if u can put a jammer in that mid slot instead of the shield booster if u get the target jammed it helps w/ ransoms a hell of alot better + w/ a multispec u should be able to get at least 1 jam cycle on any cruiser

but try 2 nos and 3 med electron blasters the nos will hold the jam and if their jamd u shouldnt have to tank 2 much heres my alts vexor setup


2x nos 3x electron t2's ull want t1 named as im sure u cnat use t2 atm

mwd 20k scrambler best named caldari jammer

2x rcu <- lol energized adepto membrane and t2 med rep

With 2 med nos and medium turrets I tend to have powergrid problems. I don't have AWU V yet. :( Is it okay to rock small blasters for awhile? Or should I wait to get that skill up before I head out. Biggest reason I'm using small blasters is because of the frigate filled missions us newbs go through day after day. YARRRR!!

Great thanks for the feedback. I was actually considering using rails alongside the nos. Also it seems as though the general idea is to buff the armor on the ship, but leave the shields as is. Is there something I don't know about the vexor? Should I leave the shields as is and rely on my armor? Is it not worth slapping a shield hp mod on there? Again thanks for all the feedback.

Nothing particularly about the Vexor, it's just that most Gallente ships are more geared towards armor tank than they are shield (generally having more low slots than med, and occasionally, as in the case of the brutix, armor tank bonuses), so you'll probably want to go with that. Plus, as it was mentioned earlier, you could replace the booster with an ECM and make it harder for your potential victim to fight back.

I think I just found a new sig...

webbifier = webifier (I could let this one slide...)
hardaner = hardener
thermel = thermal
tungston = tungsten
miss spelt = misspelled OR misspelt

Heh. Wow.
