As most people are already firmly aware, the Raven is held as the "solopwnmobile" of PvE, the King of Mission Running, et cetra and so forth.

My question is, because of that fact that the Raven doesn't receive a bonus to missile damage types like most Caldari ships, what missile types do a lot of people use?

I'll be in my Raven shortly (by which I mean, as soon as I pick up those missiles I bought), and was struck with curiosity to know what other people use in their Ravens. A friend of mine uses one Paradise and five Wraths, and I'm planning on using a more balanced three Cataclysms and three Wraths.

Do a lot of people swap out missiles dependent on foes, or just run a single all-purpose set?

Questions of a curious mind. Your answers are appreciated!

All the people I have ever ran missions with in Ravens, Drakes, any kind of missile boat always switch damage types depending on the rats.

the reasons missiles win at PvE are range, constant dps and selectable damage types. The reason the raven wins PvE even harder is because its damage bonus comes in the form of a RoF bonus, so you can use the best missile (the rats weakest resistance) and get the same damage (opposed to a flat damage bonus to only one type of missile).

In PvE you always know what you are up against, so spend the extra 30sec and change missile types. If you are in a big hurry, empty your launchers, drop the new type in your cargo bay and load them on the way to the mission. Smile
