I have to agree with everyone who has mentioned the blarpy so far, also I haven't had any experience with it myself but people seem to like the blokh (I'm sorry, I'll stop adding bl to the start of everything after a while).

I would reccomend against this personally.

A Ferox simply does more DPS, while having a better buffertank, losing only on speed/agility/some range and massively gaining on price (as well as the psychological effect; nobody worries about a Ferox on scanner!).

In fact, I'd probably give the Ferox a try if you insist on a Caldari solo-capable gunship (although the Drake does both buffer and DPS better then the Ferox). Something like this, most likely:

Lows:
3x MFS II
Damage Control II

Mids:
LSE II
YT-something MWD (grid issues)
Stasis Web II
Warp Disruptor II
Invulnerability Field II

Highs:
4-5(with implant) neutrons, rest ions
one small nos

Preety solid DPS, solid buffer, and cheap as peanuts. If you want to sink an extra few mil into it, use shield resist rigs (or extenders, but in that case, get a Drake with the extra ISK).


Also: to all the people arguing about MWD/web/scram - well, out of those only the MWD is debate-able for solo, and I would never* fly a solo ship (in fact, I try to avoid gang ships) without a MWD. It's your only recourse when blobbed (and it did save a bunch of Hurricanes for me), it's your method of catching people faster then you, of getting in your optimal and out of the other guy's optimal and so on.

I mean, yeah, you can fit something else (like dual webs) and be effective. In some situations, you could fit cargohold expander IIs for a tank and be effective, too. Sometimes you can even get kills in a freaking Retribution which has one midslot, it happens. But given the option, in a ship which can field all the PvP gear, for small gang/soloing, I'd always fit a MWD for small gang or solo work simply because it's the reliable way to fit your ship which gives you the most tactical options for both running, fighting and catching people. Sure, in a theory 1v1, the MWD-less ship with more tank wins (or forces the other guy to run away), or you can perma-tank that Rifter tackling you, but in reality, while you may beat the MWD-ing ship 1v1, he'll have a chance of surviving the next gatecamp he jumps into while you wont, and while you can perma-tank that Rifter tackling you if you don't have a web, he IS tackling you for his mates to arrive from two systems away so you either pop him in a minute or you're toast.

*I lie, my Rifters and Wolves are AB fit, but they're frigates (so rather fast on a AB) , I don't care about losing them (at least talking about the Rifter) and the signature size is relevant for avoiding larger guns. The best fittings for a Wolf (which incidentally gets no web either, bloody two-midslot ship) eat up so much grid a MWD isn't possible (also, you need a bit of faction stuff too if you want to rig it, and everyone knows 40-50M assault frigates are the win). You're fine as long as you prey on Caldari ratters, they're unlikely to fit a MWD and web, and missiles have a signature-based damage reduction anyway. Anyway, I'm rambling, but I had to explain why frigates are exempt from this generally speaking.

Just having a poke on EFT, pure numbers wise the ferox is only behind by about 10k on effective HP but is ahead on dps and has room for a NOS.

I know drake will be able to lay it's damage out sooner so in game it will be better but I honeslty didn't expect the ferox to fair so well against it in the battle of numbers.

Also with your fit for ferox I'd consider using a T2 MWD, all ions and then a med NOS.

The 3x BCU + HAM II launcher Drake does better then the Ferox, and is probably the only BC I'd be deathly afraid to face in my Hurricane.

Well, yeah, that works too. However, having as many neuts as possible make the damage output better and make it easier to shake off tacklers by using Null M, the range is preety good on the Ferox.

The small NOS should give you enough playtime provided you're not being neuted, since you're not going to perma-run your MWD and even if starting the fight in a bad state cap-wise, your cap is going to last longer then anyone's ship. Requires max cap skills to be good, but, hey, you need that for thermodynamics anyway Very Happy

It's a matter of preference, the ion setup with medium nos is good too, but I really like the neutrons and their range.

Haha, everyone trying to push Gal on me, even alliance :P

I'm sorry, but they look silly.

Is it possible to have a good solo Arb with shield skills?

Edit:// Also i'm very keen on getting an interceptor, Crow meant to be one of best right? But obviously not for hybrid, is a Raptor that far behind it? or will I have to settle for a crow without weapons?


SILLY?! I think the Thorax looks pretty sharp. Has drones and pretty decent with hybrids, can put on a nice tank, cheap and a very effective in solo PvP if you pick your targets right. If you are looking for just 1 or 2 ships to put around in on a slow day. That would be a good one.

Well I like many other people, think it looks like a girls ideal boyfriend ;)

Anyone got experience in solo pvping with a ferox?

It's not THAT big a deal, as I doubt i'll ever be a pirate, but it would be nice. I'm gonna look up some amarr ships, i'll prolly have a play in eft myself as well.

Thanks for the good response, keep it up.

erm, blaster ferox? cheap, ok dps, good range, can full gank fit with reasonable tank, and cheap (again).

2 x Heavy Nuetron Blaster II / 4 x Heavy Ion Blaster II / Offlined 'whatever' for heatsink
1 x MWD I/named / 1 x 24km scram / 1 x invuln II / 1 x LSE II / 1 x LSE named (pg)
3 x MFS II / 1 x DCU II

drop a nuetron to Ion to upgrade MWD/LSE to t2, or as needed depending on skills (above is AWU V)

just a suggestion, bit of an eft fit as STILL haven't got around to flying a ferox since it's boost Embarassed might be best to drop an invuln for web? but would deffinatley say ferox will give you best gank/cost ratio... and really solo you will lose plenty of ships, it's all about limiting your losses until you're confident you're the god of pvp. (and after that pretending the losses don't hurt Wink )

I would try a blaster Moa for a start. It's is not easy to get it working, but with some tactics and range you can go a long way.

However I have not actualy PvPed in one. Only some test where I was able to waste thoraxes about 50:50 based on the starting position (if I was at the edge of web range, I could tear him down before he was 50% through my shields).

blasters,launcher or nos
holy trio, LSEII
DC II, 3x MFSII

drones as you like

3% shield HP and 3% shield recharge implants

Crow is the only caldari ship I would solo in. As far as I am concerned, caldari are support oriented and I know I can rely on the strengths to make a difference - I know its been said time and time again but. . .Gallente are so superior in terms of solo pvp (even small gang <-5 people>) that it takes someone stupid to die to anything else. So if you want to kill T1 PvE cruisers then sure. . .but then again, anything would work against those kinds of ships.

I know you are trying to be convinced that it can be done, and it can, but its not worth it. . .really.

as the guy above mentioned.... and i wish the was someway to explain it that will not get a lot fo pve mission behores telling you it can be done. Caldari simple excels at PVE, cause of the mid slots.

I have yet to fly past a caldari solo pwn machine in 0.0 that dosen't rely on support or the targets to be stupid of sticking around to a swissarmyknifenanokilling raven (my old ceo used to have one of these set up Primarily to kill nanohacs, insta popping style.. it was awesome!!, this said, that and the crow were his only caldari ships he was seen in).

Its not that they simply don't work in 0.0... its that your relying on too many factors to make it a viable option to 'when bored just go out solo for some pvp'. Most of 0.0 is made up of nanowags and blobs... it is a blessing when you wonder accross a single big target that can't warp out quick enough.... cause most small stuff legs it (unless bait). As a solo roamer, you have to go hunt for the ships... and will find it a challenge without a point on your ship cause people will simple warp out. If your going to be hanging around lowsec, you'll find more targets but find more concord on your Deathmails :P however, in hotspots due to FW you will see a lot more pirates and blobs to contend with.

I'll again suggest the curse for you... because of your primary skill set atm, and that you are flying amarr crusier already. Blasters are a close range gun, and require your gun skills to be high to be effective against most 0.0 targets (cause its a different mind set to be in 0.0.... blobs/bait/bubbles/scouts... its all part of the game. They will see you coming and set up camp before you get to them. You'll fly into a bubble and be owned by a load of cloakers and claim its an exploit). and btw... everyone loves a caldari ship to kill! they kinda melt. SO why the curse? Well atleast you can semi nano it, you can effectively defend yourself with long range neuts, use your drones for primary damage and neut anything that gets close to you. oh, and... interceptors will not often try to tackle you, infact, most will still run from you. Its a highly effective and dangerous ship. Go with caldari, and you've just put a big sign above your head "kill me first.. PLEASE".

its not that caldari ships are bad at pvp. Its that they excel at PVE. They do nicely at support to. Using blasters is Short range, so you NEED a tank to withstand the damage while been webbed. Putting anything other than T2 Blasters on will be even less effective... and t2 med blasters will take you a few months to train for, and thats not including the time for your support skills. Stick to your present skill set, drones and arby, and develop your amarr crusier skills. More choice

you will regret it if you really enjoy the PVP to have just trained caldari ships.

I fly Rapier... its one dog ugly ship... but its owns when nano'd as support, and solo hunting. Looks is not everything.

When I was looking at dps numbers I was comparing it to the HML drake, mainly because that's what I fly so it was already loaded into EFT.

I was just thinking the med NOS may be nice because your gona want to be able to run the MWD for a while to try and stay out of range of other people guns and the NOS means that as long as they can still MWD towards you, chances are you still have the cap to MWD away from them.

You still get 7+6.3 with ions which in all fairness isn't bad and enables you to take about 25% less damage from other blasters or projectiles whilst your still at full damage (always assuming you can keep the range around the 7km mark).

"As a solo roamer, you have to go hunt for the ships... and will find it a challenge without a point on your ship cause people will simple warp out." - You do realise all the discussed caldari solo PvP setups have, erm, points? Do you have a serious reading comprehension issue? Blaster-gank Ferox, HAM Drake, etc, all ships with full tackle and MWD, and in some cases better then the widely touted Gallente/Amarr/Minmatar counterparts.

yes please do... then come to D5i where my main is, so i can sit at 15k from you in my pretty weak dps rapier set my warrior II's on you, have you scrammed and double webbed just off the gate you jumped through and wait over the next 30mins it takes for me to slow eat through your tank.

Caldari rails have two tanking styles - shield buffer and range (yes, range is a tank like speed or resistances are). Its just not possible for caldari ships to maintain that range - thats why tackle support is key. Without it, you are bait.

The OP is saying that he would like to solo 'once in awhile', he also did not know what Null ammo was. Its my honest opinion that solo pvp is the hallmark of Gallente and Minmatar and some Amarr ships, the Caldari lack these options. Its not imbalanced, its not an issue because we make up for it by being the silent support in gangs - if you want to be in the thick of things - Gallente/Amarr are the way to go.

I never said a blaster drake, I said a HML drake and seriously, if you ever want to fight one of those in your rapier come and find me, because your either gona have to manage to speed tank my missiles (admitadly possible with good skills, if you try you'd never break my tank though) or run.

Also if you go with your idea about sitting at 15km from a blaster ferox then its guns alone will still do about 150dps to you, I know it's not huge but I bet he can tank you longer than you can tank him.

Yes yould could move out further but then again you could do that against any BC (apart from minny ones with ambit rigs or amarr ones with scorch and maybe an optimal rig) so how does that make the ferox any worse?

Also if you honestly belive the sentence above I'll quite happily fight you (using a caldari ship of course) until that idea is beaten out of your head.

No, I was comparing a blaster ferox to a HML drake (what most people consider to be the better caldari solo BC (well actually they consider the HAM drake to be better but I like HML's, purely personal preference)).

Oh, lol. Hey, after 30s you'll have no drones vs anyone with a brain and a web (and again; reading comprehension; all the PvP fittings do have them, so forget your drones).

In low-sec (which is more conductive to soloing/small gang in a BC) you'll have awesome fun tanking 330 DPS from sentries in your Rapier, unless the guy is flashing red. You obviously have no clue about either the capabilities of certain Caldari ships and about the realities of low-sec PvP.

Anyway, you're both not killing a BC in a Rapier unless he's got sentries on him and many BCs can in fact hit you just fine (Harbringer/Hurricane, even neutron blaster Ferox if you're stupid as you claim you are and sit 15 (lol) km off.

Yeah, you can tackle a HAM (or HML even) Drake in a Rapier until your (or his, or random neutrals) support arrives provided you're flying a cap-injected setup. So? You can do that to any Gallente ship too (easier, in fact, you don't need to MWD around to speedtank them), doesn't make them implausible ships. Anyway, in the BC world, the Caldari ships tend to kick the arse of everyone else in direct combat, and only really pay for this by not being able to hit nanos/ceptors like the Hurricane/Harbringer can (both of which require high skills to work). Caldari ships get the added bonus of nubbins thinking them easy prey.

Also, post with your main.

Lads - Might i point out that the OP is talking about Caldari ships. Not asking which race he shoud go to, or his alternatives. Hes wanting Caldari Ships, for solo work, regardless on comparison with other races.

OP:

From what folks have written so far here, and personal experience with caldari blasterboats, i suggest:

Moa + Ferox. See which you like. Personally i prefer active tanks on both, but passive are extremely effective, although you sacrifice too much dps for tank with them.

Once you find the ship you prefer, start skilling for the t2 variant. Vulture does less dps than the Ferox, but has a greater tank, and slightly worse dps. However, with the whole caldari philosophy of blaster boats...You tank their gank, yet they cant tank your peashooters. Slowly whittle them away to a pod.

Hope this helps,

Wax

As a solo roamer, you have to go hunt for the ships... and will find it a challenge without a point on your ship cause people will simple warp out. If your going to be hanging around lowsec, you'll find more targets but find more concord on your Deathmails :P however, in hotspots due to FW you will see a lot more pirates and blobs to contend with.



I would like to learn more about lowsec CONCORD. Neutral

Maybe I could exchange it for a quick lesson on what happens to a battlecruiser that engages a HAM Drake in a 1v1?

jeese, guys pointless qouting just a small part of my post to prove a point against my advice on why not to go caldari Blaster boat



Well, caldari blasterboat has better odds of defending itself (thanks to actually good range with null and PG to fit neutrons) then a Gallente blasterboat, for instance.

So you might want to rephrase that to "don't solo fly blasterboats in 0.0", which I think everyone can agree with.

And, yeah, blobs kill solo players, we all know that.

Anyway, we're derailing, Vaxau is right. The OP wants solo Caldari blasterboats. Post-buff Ferox is quite good at it.
