Personally i find it amusing that ppl are actually asking where the missions are and the op is refusing to say, despite there only being a handful of agents for each faction (always grouped together too). Nevertheless a passive hic can tank them, although dps would be lacking, the passive ishtar approach might cost more, but will run through them much faster. Real problem is the bulk of rewards are (insane) amounts of lp and salvage/tags and it's only good if you only use 2 people, or 3 max. 2 rr, injecting, marauders would be ideal, but you can be probed in 30 sec, so it hasn't been worth missioning in lowsec since they changed the probes.

the op says he runs level 5's in an ONYX and HARB. Now the Onyx is a fairly reasonable choice for most missions, but why the hell would you use a harb? It's a fine ship in very many regards. However, it can't select the damage type and the damage/range is not all that great.


Then he goes on to act like he wouldn't let anyone ever run missions with him- as if those are expensive ships to lose.


There are level 5 agents all over low sec now(I think some have been added since the initial introduction of level 5's possibly), and guess what- no one does them. I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I've seen people doing level 5's.

Yes they can be worthed ... as a pirate bait. Twisted Evil

BTW, where the agents are is public information. Just got to the respective corporations for your faction (Federation Navy for example) and look for lvl 5 agents. I just found 4 of them in 4 different system in Placid by doing so ... takes 2 minutes.

Apparently a properly-fitted Ishtar can solo these. Or so says The Great Battleclinic! Wink

I agree, or an adolescent running through puberty without a girlfriend. Either situation can be frustrating.

What are you facing in level 5s? I am curious since I have never done level 5s.

And they say the OP is unhelpfullRolling Eyes I've not done a Lvl 5 but http://www.evemissions.com/Level5s.html has a few lvl 5 missions info listed, this should give you some general idea.

This thread is awesome - it's full of witty comebacks and clever retorts.
I especially enjoyed page two.

This thread is full of carebear angst, I love it.

I think the reason why people aren't running 5s is pretty simple: cooperating with your mates to defend lvl 5 systems and maybe lose a ship once in a while in defense is a seriously scary proposal.

True, but what i truly enjoyed was that now everyone in this forum is ripping on him in some way or another and he doesnt have the gonads to reply back, that realization made me happy Razz.

EDIT: Either that or someone reported him for lude comments and behavior, in which it still makes me happy.

Humility is the least rewarded trait in society Wink.

well in all fairness most level 5 missions arnt actually that difficult. I mean not many even include capital ships. When i first started to check them out with frigs and stuff, i was expecting some kind of lagg fest with like 100 ships. It wasnt even that exciting. So now we do them with a passive drake and logistics with raven as the power... Its pretty simple stuff... I'd say wc level with everything red, and maybe approaching enemies abound part 5 difficulty... If you do find caps (which i havnt yet) and ive done 6... sure its a tad harder.. but thats when logistics comes in...

Besides... most people would find out what their getting themselves into before they do a new mission... hell thats usually what people do in lvl 4's for the first time... no different here really... just got to be prepared.

Oh and another thing... its actually quite usual to be given missions in high sec if sum of u are worried about getting popped by pirates!

in all fairness, it would be less scary if PvE-fitted ships didn't get eaten alive by PvP-fitted ships...

i personally enjoy missions in low-sec because it adds an element of danger and risk to the mission, but i completely understand why - when you're just trying to run a mission and make money - that you don't want to have to face low-sec gankers.

Very good post. Inspire people to go to low sec :)

More targets for pirates. Think i'm going to activate my old account Very Happy

They are indeed fun to do and sometimes get good loot as well. I did them when lvl 5 was just introduced and the reward was not good, especially when you do it with others and split the rewards.
