Lol, I don't know. The game mechanics allow it to work that way so I use it to my advantage before it gets nerfed.

I love my thorax, its an amazing ship if you fly it right.

This is how I fit it,

High slots:
5x Heavy Electron Blasters II

Med slots:Default
Faint Elipison Warp Scrambler
Fleeting Propulsion Inhibitor
Afterburner II (Cap booster against nuet fitted ships, 2nd web against Frigates/destroyers/cruisers or ships generaly faster than me that stick to close range)

Low slots:
Damage Control II
1600mm Rolled Tungsten
Energised adaptive nano
Mag stab II
Mag stab II

Rigs:
3x Trimarks

Drones:
5x hammerheads

40k ehp
593 dps

Just orbit with ab on and large ships wont hit you as your guns tear them to shreds, i dont understand why many people dislike the thorax.

To answer your question about why use the 1600 plate instead of a resist mod, is that if you don't have that plate your guna lose to much ehp just to go a bit faster so its not worth it in the long run cause your not guna live long enough for your speed to make a difference, but i have to be honest, against rail gun fitted ships that pull lots of range on me, I turn off my plate and overload me ab to go 550m/s to catch them and the railguns don't hit me at close range so my tank doesnt matter anymore.





This is a troll, right?

No MWD? and sometimes not a prop mod at all? lol?

You sometimes offline the plate and overload the AB to go "550m/s to catch them"... o.O

Must be a troll. That's the very definition of how not to fly a Thorax correctly.

Lol, sometimes means almost never to me, sometimes it happens and it needs to be done to win a fight, you cant fight with a thorax from 20km away. Prop mod doesnt matter when your fighting close range ships that are faster than you, you have to remove that element from them in the fight, mwd isn't worth it when your fighting close range 90% of the time and against larger ships that have webs and if they scram out your mwd you are SOL. Go fly one and tell me otherwise.

"Hey, i made this EFT fitting, it totaly works in-game."

"Thorax is a great PvP ship, you just can't fit a MWD on it."

I love EVE-O forums.

Taron, I can't use eft unless I get on my dinosaur of a laptop that takes 15min to startup, so I don't use it often. I have apple computers, there isn't an eft version for macs.

Vorneus, my thorax fit is based my experience and I use my thorax everyday for pvp, that fit does work good. I re fit according to the situation which some of you people can't grasp, no one fit works for everything, you don't ALWAYS need a propulsion mod, you don't ALWAYS need a cap booster, you don't ALWAYS need to use a thorax for a fight. Your criticizing aspects of my fit that can be changed on a moments notice. Not every module is locked in its spot after you fit it once.

There's really nothing wrong with fitting AB only on a cheap ship. Sure if you get kited you're dead, but also only a few mil poorer so no big deal, while in case of a well placed warp in or simply facing another short range ship, you'll do pretty well since you'll have more grid and cpu left for guns and tank not to mention the edge AB gives you at close range vs opponent without one.

I'd never do it with a t2 ship or up but for a simple cruiser, especially if used in a specific way, it's perfectly fine.

I love it, you don't always need a propulsion mod and you swap fittings or ships accordingly? Do you ever leave docking range? Or high security space for that matter. WTF is this.

Lol, if i go to low sec there ain't no frekin way I'm bringing a thorax, if i'm in a thorax your exactly right I never leave docking range or high sec. Thats what it's good for, high sec ganking, if i go to low sec I usually bring a prop mod but I have been on ops without one and i can tell you it didn't kill me. I gave it up for another cap booster on my myrm, lol probably not the best idea but it didn't cause me any problems.

Lol eek, I can't eft it ATM, I don't have my laptop with me. I'm guna flash a guess of around 900 dps and around 21k ehp, if you actually use that for pvp I'm betting you have a scimy for rr.

I don fly either thorax or deimos these days but if i did have a scimi whit me i would deffo fly a deimos instead, sure 100m more but dang it looks phat compared to a thorax and does alot more dmg whit better resists! note the neutrons that just slips in nicely there :) Shield fitt is for the mobility thats needed these days as prenano nerf i had it fitt whit 1600/ions. Sadly today you can get caught by a mwding bs in your plate deimos :(

Yes, if you offline your plate it will lose its mass bonus and your ship will go faster.


But where does the mass go? Where manbrawl? Where?


A gaping mass hole.
