Reason:
1 They have 8 Hi Slots
2 They are Fast (Interdictor will be even faster)
3 They have decent cargo capacity
4 No high-salvage skill needed

Hi Slots
6 X Salvager 1
2 X Small tractor beam

Med Slot

at least 1 X AB

Low Slot

Nano, or Cap relay for amarr

head to one wreck, Tractor another 2

Fire 6 X salvager I

I usually succeed in 1 volley, at most 2, rarely 3 (my salvage skill LVL2)
extremely efficient salvage ship!

Ya I use a destroyer (Catalyst)

5x salvager 1
3 x small tractor

1x AB

3x basic cargo expander.

I might dump the cargo expanders for a bit more speed.

Only problem i have run into is cap problems. Trying to salvage with all 5

i actually like my arbitrator for salvaging, mainly because its drones an 1 heavy launcher with 3 salvagers, or 2 salvagers and 1 tractor.

well, what I mean is a specialized Salvage ship
Salvage purpose only, and must be fast and successful

It was sitting in the back of my hanger hungry and upset because I've neglected it for a year and a half, so I geared it with some tractor beams, some salvagers, and a lot of love. Working great so far!

Seriously though, a typhoon has been working great.

I have this current set-up for looting missions:
Hi - 3 x tractor beams, 5 x salvagers
Mid - 1 x MWD, 3 x cap rechargers
Low - 4 x cargo expanders, 3 x inertial stabilizers

I can move ~1200 m/s, have ~1400m3 cargo, and can turn on a dime.

MWD not working in quite a few missions Neutral

but anyways, maybe good for some L4 mission salvage + loot 2 in 1

I have an alt follow me around with a Coercer, 4 salvagers, 4 beams, named AB, 200mm plate, nano and nanofibre.

Works great and can help to take down frigates while salvaging.

If you stick a full complement of salvagers on, or beams you will probably end up getting toasted. Belt salvage with the above setup usually means I can create my own salvage as I go. :)

Yeah dude the destroyer is king for salvaging. I fit it with 6 salvagers, 2 trctors I use as many salvagers as I can on each can I pull in. I am guaranteed to get something if it has anything at all. it has enough cargo to pull in a few bs drops (which is where the good parts are multiple per wreak is great)

sadly tho the rate at wich you find stuff seems very low. I was following around buddies in low sec taking every wreak in the entire system for hrs. i ended up with a mere 52 parts Crying or Very sad I think these rigs are gonna be expensive as heck... if it takes me that long to get 50 parts these rigs are gonna take days n days of looting to get. I was better off mining in my hulk... but a change of pace is always a blast

I use a Reaper! I called it "Tiny salvager" and it's fitting is:
High : 2 X Salvager 1
Mid : 1 X Cold gas arcthingy AB
Low : Inertia stabiliser thingy
Drone : 1 X Warrior II

It's fun, fast, almost completely free (Except the drone, but that could be replace with a TI)and to be honest it's fine for cleaning up after someone who's been killing things.
Some call me mad for flying the ships I do... I think they may be right.

I think we can all agree that as a pure-salvage ship destroyers are the best, but I think the Thrasher is the king of salvagers for one simple reason - its the only destroyer that LOOKS like its been salvaged itself :) I mean c'mon, its got "salvage barge" written all over it!

definitely the cheapest way to make a decent salvager, works so well...

I use a coercer for picking up loot and salvaging after lvl 3 missions

2 tractors, 6 salvagers
1 AB
3 expanded cargo thingies, 1 nano hull thingmajig

Cool


best thing is you can tow wrecks behind you while your salvagers work and you are moving to tractor range of the next wreck Smile

i've been using cat way before revelations for mission looting. i would pack 6 x tractor beams and 3 cargo expanders.

now, after revelations i switched to:

4 x Tractor Beam
4 x Salvager
3 cargo expanders

i've been using a cormorant for salvagin, it works great even with the little cap it has, at first with 1 cargo expander and AB it used to run out of cap but my current setup is 4 tractor beams and 4 salvagers, middle slots 3 cap rechargers and 1mm AB (brings my speed to 250) and 1 PDU at the bottom, it's a beast.

HI: 3x hvy nos, 2x salvage, 1x tractor beam

LOW: LAR II, MAR II, EANM II, 3 t2 armour hardeners, DC II

pwnz everything ;]

I am thinking of using destroyers but at the moment, I use an Exequror on my alt.

2 Tractor, 2 salvage units.
Shield stuff and an mwd in the mids.
Cargo expanders in the lows

Can follow me around and tank the frigs cruisers that I leave alive when farming the spawns if I leave early to the next belt. Can fit 4 drones if the frig or cruiser in question is scrambling me or is too powerful for some reason.

My Alt's Science/Logistics Drake setup:
Highs:
3 x Tractor beams
5 x Salvagers

Swap out some of the above for shield transferers when needed. When I get probe launchers sorted then again chop and change as required.

Mids:
3-4 an.alyszers/codebreakers as needed
1 AB/MWD as required
1 large cap battery or shield extender depending on need

Lows:
2-3 Cargo expanders
1 CPR
1 DC if needed

It's a bit of a slow poke, but to be honest, if you draw aggro and kill intelligently in missions the majority of the wrecks are well within tractor range or just a few seconds afterburning away. Shield extender & DC for those high respawn cosmos areas, to give a bit of a buffer if they arent locked down by whoever is tanking with you. Not run out of cap yet, but i dont run it all at the same time.

Exequror, granted only 4 highs, but if your using it to loot as well, has a nice cargo hold with cruiser 5 and a couple of expanders, plus will easily take an mwd + basic shield tank (just incase a respawn catches you out).

I'm sort of surprised there's no scrambler in the meds.

With a fitting like that, you could probably salvage live targets - well, clobbering them over the head till their wreck pops out.

I use an exequror, loads of cargo bay space.
I fit the highs with 4 salvagers, no real need for tractors, I don't mind waiting.

My Cormorant works just fine.

4 tractor beams, 4 salvagers
1 afterburner, 3 cap recharge
1 cargo expander

if my hold gets full i just dump a jet can and toe it with a tractor beam

Best salvager is maelsstrom .. 8 salvagers... uber shield tank all low pds (till you can keep tank forever) And you can get into any battefield.. salvage and ignore anything else.
