Hi i am atm training for the logi skill to use for incursions but kinda wanted to get my feet wet in them already so i was looking at what i can fly. Im lacking t2 large weaponry so i was looking at cruisers and i can fly the cynabal and vagabond with almost max skills (since i own a loki) and was thinking is the cynabal of any use in incursions or are they just to flimsy (i dont feel like getting a new loki as i dont want to start in something that expensive).

Soemwhat stolen from the shield incursion site and then added some faction stuff that i own anyway. So.. will it work or just "omg no you will die in flames noob!! gbt wow!" ^^ or whatever is the catchphrase these days for flaming people :)

Wink

Just kidding.

Probably will work with a good fleet but isn't the Cynabal an expensive ship to use when there's a very high chance of getting it blown up?

cynabols okay, but its not playing to its strengths in this case, in that u dont need to move very much (altho sig tanking is nice).. a battleship-gunboat with webs or lots of tracking comps is better.. something like this

logi drones act in swarms with other logi drones for "oh ****" moments, faction webs, because they are barely enough in their own right. Dont have to faction the the lows, but it always help...

Use something like this once yer happy in a group, otherwise a cane/maelstrom/abaddon/sleipnir is more than enuf

Cynabal will work (not a very high chance of dying at all with decent fleets), but it's not the best choice. There isn't too much moving involved in Vanguard sites which are what you would be mostly running.

A Mach is much better like the previous poster said. A Maelstrom or Sleipnir would also be a good bit better.

Well as i said, dont have t2 large weaponry ^^ or i would have gone with a BS. It is in my to do list to get t2 pulses... but uff i keep getting distracted *laughs*

So i guess ill wait until i got my logi skills done then as the original plan was and go with that.

if you can fly and own a loki...why not a dual-web loki? Will get fleets faster then the cynabal, and be more useful imo.

^ This.

I flew a dual-web loki in quite a few fleets, works wonders with faction webs.

I wanted to avoid something that expensive to start with but i guess you guys talked me into it. Just have to re-rig that poor loki :)

Dual Web Loki > Warfare Links Sleipnir >>>> Cynabal.

Without webs, few Fleet Commanders will take you in their incursion fleets.
