OK if you had to take any 2 tech I ships (no faction ships pls) which would you take.

Not interested in loot/salvage, just wanting to blitz missions as fast as poss for LPs/standings.

Missioning in caldari space btw.

Cheers.

Really depend which race ships you fly.
Best combination should be Drake (or nighthawk) for tanking/fregate killing with high DPS battleship for killing big ships.
Eventually 1 shield transfer modul to help drake with tank in some missions (like AE bonus room).

Sticking to T1 I would stay away from the raven. I would honestly say hurricane and mega/domni. Just to blitz the mission though (killing only the minimum to grab the objective and get.)

Drake+Abaddon for 800 please, Alex.

edit: forgot T1 only...but really the nighthawk should be next on the skillplan. It's such a sweet ship.

Anything + dominix for second ship. Turn on tank, deploy drones, set drones to assist your main character, ignore.

if its one of the few missions has a lot of transiting, switch from a set of sentries to a set of heavies or even mediums, so you can move and fight, and set the dominix to follow.

2xNH should run through missions pretty fast. Lots of DPS, fast, can kill small and big stuff equally well.

I have a Paladin + Domi duo. Deploy sentry drones to assist the Paladin. Paladin tractors the wrecks for the Domi to salvage. With my skills and setup I dish out 1000+ with this duo.

Any 2 T1 ships - Drake to actually run the mission, Dominix w/T2 sentries to rip the enemies apart. Use the Drake to aggro the whole room, warp in the Domi, deploy drones, "Guard" your Drake, set drake to orbit the Domi, and go AFK after you've killed the web/scram frigates.

No, you can't actually go AFK, since the path your ship takes to orbit will change with time, and end up sending you right through that pack of autocannon-equipped battleships at their optimal range. Or you'll get stuck on an asteroid or some piece of debris, and the battleships will catch up with you and open your hull like a tin can.

Both the Drake and the Domi can select damage types (missiles and drones), and the sentry Domi is a set-and-forget assistant - so you can Alt+Tab to the Drake window, play full screen and actually enjoy the fights and the scenery.

The Domi performs even better when you tune the drone range to exactly what is needed, and use the rest of your slots to support a few rail guns, but that requires concentration on two characters at once.

Once you get that second character into a Domi, focus on training to T2 sentry drones, they really are worth every skillpoint you invest in them.

I use "Guard" rather than "Assist" because I can't queue up targets fast enough when there are T2 sentries and the Drake's missiles and drones shooting at them. In addition, drones on "Assist" will only start shooting your target once you activate an offensive module, so you'll have to wait for one of your missile launchers or target painter to finish cycling before the drones start shooting. Drones on "Guard" will kill one target, then immediately start shooting something else.

Drake + Raven or Drake + Dominix

Use a super tanked Drake with f.o.f light missiles (with assault launchers), take full aggro, fire up the missiles so the frigates and cruisers will be taken care then use the torp Raven with AB (or the Domi with sentries) to take care of the big boys.

2X T1 BS that should run through lvl 4 missions.

1X massive tanked Raven.
1X Gank Megathron.

Warp the raven in and get the aggro on it, use it to pop the support. Warp in the megathron and have it MWD/AB towards the High DPS targets and pound on them with blasters. With most missions the npc's will move to within 30km of the raven. Your mege should be able to cover that distance in no time.

Other tactic is (if the NPC's stay out at range) is have the raven run away... and as the npc's follow at range they should move right through the path of the mega.

(also having web fitted will help with melting the targets)

2 Golems. Altho if you want to get away cheaper (yes those are faction ships) then go for CNR's.
