apologies if its elsewhere, but scoured and i cant see it.

Anyway,
I hear the Hurricane is great but want to know of any other recommendation for level 4 missions.
to me a good number of high slots - 7 or 8 and good number of low slots and fill the mids with AB and 2 cap rechargers II and perhaps a MWD if enough room.

cane:

tractors/salvagers in aprox 4/4 ratio...

mwd, cap rechargers/large cap bat (because they are amazing)

expanded cargo holds.

Destroyer:
See above.

Geddon
See above... maybe a few less cargoholds and a few more cap relays.

Typhoon:
See above ^^

I have a salvage Harbinger that works pretty well, but the most cost effective is the Catalyst.

no fussed about cost as my alt is a manufacture character so I can make up to BS at cost.
Oh, and with your recommendations, please advices on your preferred fit out of said ship.

Pick your favorite destroyer. Fit it according to the plan i did for the 'cane. You now have the best salvager ever.

Hurricane does wonder. Salvaging AE in less then 15mn. \o/
I don't like BS, fat arsed, and 2000m cargo-hold is ok if you jettison scrap metal & cap booster charge. Cap is never a problem.

oh and another thing. I currently use a Catalyst for Level 3 with a 4 sal and 4 trac split and 3 CE II and Cap recharger II and AB and 3 Salvage Tackle rigs.

Pick a destroyer, go shoot up your mission and come back in it to salvage. If you're flying in a ship with a few utility high slots fit a salvage/tractor in those and use it (cane, raven, domi)

T2 BS Smile

The tractor beam speed and range bonus makes these ships perfect for the job. 80km salvage diameter, just move in, park and salvage.

Use a destroyer, catalyst works well for salvaging/looting.

Before getting a Maraudeur to do it I used a salvage phoon:

Capacitor Power Relay II

Nanofiber Internal Structure II

100MN MicroWarpdrive II
Cap Recharger II

Small Tractor Beam I

Salvager I

Salvager I

Goes over 1100m/s with the mwd.
can drag up to 4 wrecks.
1652m cargo - 4 expanders.
3423m full expanders (for missions like AE)

Works especially great on those kited missions, where all wrecks are in a lon row: approach on the furthest wreck and salvage/drag while you move along.

For players that aren't happily cruising around in marauders, destroyers are usually the ship of choice. That said, I can definatly recomend anyone that enjoy missions to skill for marauders. I find missions a lot more enjoyable after I switched to one.

So how's that MWD work in deadspace?

^You bookmark a wreck in each room, turn in the mission. Then the MWD works just fine, and you can salvage several missions at once.

From beginner to best:
Catalyst -> Hurricane -> Kronos/Paladin.

You can stick a salvaging BS in there somewhere if you want, dunno on which side of the 'cane to put it though. The Phoon from above looks like a nice choice for that, though it I'd say it has entirely too many cap mods. Those lows are better used for other things. Don't need to permarun mwd imo.

I know, its just that I don't spend that much time thinking about a salvage setup. :) I do like to put in more cargo-expanders. I just hate leaving loot behind. :P

If you aren't fussed about costs get a vargur.

Otherwise a BC with MWD some expanded cargo holds and tractor beams/salvagers and salvage rigs.

You'll also turn like a pig and accelerate sloooooooooowly. Oversized AB's are not a good idea.

I'm currently using a Hurricane for my salvager. 2040 hold space with 6 Expanders on it, plus I have a "huge" secure container (1500 space used in return for 1950 space available) and a "medium" secure container (325 used for 390 available) to boost it up to just a shade under 2600 actual available space. MWD + 2 Cap Recharger 2's in the mids. 5/3 config for the tractors/salvager seems to work best for me. 722 speed with the MWD, though I usually set it to 420 or so if I'm dragging wrecks and only set full speed if it's a long run between wreck clusters. Works very nicely.

Harbinger:

4x Tractor
4x Salvager
1x 10 MN AB II
3x Cap Recharger II
6x Expanded Cargo II

3x Salvage Tackle Rigs

The key thing on any dedicated salvage ship are the Salvage Tackle Rigs - they really improve your efficiency.

Hurricane you can get just about every level 4 mish salvage in the hold (There is one you wont) you can get 2k cargo space anything else I have tried is pretty pants in comparison... BS is just too slow

5x cargo exp II
2x istab II

if you are just going to have a single ship use a bc. using destroyers tho allows you to leave a salvage dd and an itty in each of the systems you mission in or are likely to be sent to which helps with the running back and forth thing.

One thing that everone seems to forget is that with a tractor you can only pull wercks at 500m/s. So if you go 1000m/s the wreck won't stay within that 1500m range for you to take the stuff out (if it ever gets there). I would use the AB to keep my speed around 600m/s.

Just something to think about.

Thank all who posted. I just made myself a Hurricane which seemed to be the most popular for bank for buck.

Thread closed.

Thanks all.
