So i heard this can be soloed in an ishtar
I was wondering what fit
Would a 1600 plate 3 hardeners and a rep be enough to tank this?
also it says here
http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Pith%27s_Penal_Complex
that it takes over 550 DPS to brake the boss's tank, but is 5 Ogre II's enough with ishtar bonuses?

The fit i use is a passive shield tank:

High:

civilian railgun (draw agro)
Tractor beam
Sisters core probe launcher
Cloak (can be exchanged for a salvager if you want in on mag sites)

Med
3X large shield extender
dread guristas kinetic hardener (T2 works as wel though)
Afterburner II

Lows
5X shield power relay II

rigs:
Medium shield purger I

For drones i use the caldari ones, because they do kinetic damage. I do not use ogre's, but wasps, wardens and hornets,all T2. You can kill Dewak easily with T2 wasps, and i have even done it with T1 wasps, though that takes some time.
This fit will let you tank ALL aggro in all room of the pith penal plex, though you might want to kill of all the destroyers in the final room, because they are heavy on your tank.
I heard you can reach similar results with a armor tanked Ishtar, but i do not have experience with it.

Even with all lvl V's, EFT shows I would need to use not only the faction hardener, but also the Republic Fleet afterburner to make that shield tanked setup cap stable. Are you running a plex with only 15 minutes of cap? Are you not perma-running the AB? I wouldn't think the tank would be enough to tank Penal Complex without the AB running?

would this setup have enf DPS to break the screaming guy's tank?
i read somewhere you need 450+ DPS to break his tank
p.s soloed it last nigth with a drake but i used fury missles to take the screaming guy witch would bring my DPS to over 500

You don't need the afterburner. I use it to speeden up travel between gates and triggers. If you don't mind being slow you can switch it for another hardener or something. But the tank on this fit is already awesome, so an afterburner to travel around faster is more usefull to me.

Yes, it has. Like i said earlier, with decent drone skills and with T1 wasps it is already possible to kill him, though it will take some time. With T2 wasps its pretty easy. He doesn't rep 450 dps. More like 300 or 350.

I'm sure you realise of course, that because of the higher damage mod on thermal drones they do in fact do more damage to guristas than kinetic drones, despite that being guristas weakest resist.

Armour tanked ishtars are actually better for high end plexes because they essentially sig tank.

armour tanking and with Wasp IIs and you can do this plex in about 40 mins in a solo Ishtar if you actually fly your drones rather than AFK aggro them.

Rattlesnake BPC is the only thing it might drop of real value unfortunately.

Yes because I heard they are giving out A-type shield boosters like candy these days, not to mention all the other a-type mods.

Oh wait Pithum A-type medium shield boosters go for 900 million in Jita.

Passive shield fit can be found in evewiki... that's nice enough ishtar fit for penal complex.

I would suggest 6/10 gurista plex over this one tho... Slow going and usually crap loot compared to 6/10.
