Hi, was thinking about getting a Taranis. Is it any good - what is its strength / weakness?
And what set-up would be good fore pvp/pve?

The Taranis is mainly used for up in your face combat. It's speed combined with hybrid turret damage bonus makes it most useful for short ranged combat. It is considered by some the best interceptor in EVE.

Hi,

I think Taranis is one of the better inty, easy to fit and amazing damage dealer :)


For PVP u can use this config:

3 light ion 1 small smart bomb
1 mwd 1 scamble 1 statis
3 cap power relay

and for PVE:

3 light ion 1 small smart bomb
1 1MN ab 1 small shield boost and evrithing u want
1 small armor repairer and waht u need to fit hi and med

With this config u can kill a Serpentis BS in approximatively 5-7 min

PVE setup (also does L3 Missions)

3 Ion Blasters, 1 Small Nosferatu

1 Small Shield Booster, 1 Cap Recharger (T2 or named), 10mn AB

2 Micro Aux Powercores, 1 tracking mod (maybe swap for a mag stab or a PDU, depends on your skills).

any setup for pve which does not have at least 1 smartbomb, or a 10mn afterburner is useless for pve

a 1mn mwd will see you taking too many hits from the frigates and worse, the cruisers, to be able to suvive, yet anything slower than 1.6kps will get destroyed by misiles, unless you can be sure of getting them with the smartbombs

(edit for spelling and grammar)

I guess it depends on your skills and the NPC's you go up against. I've been PvE with just an 1mn Afterburner and done very well thanks.

The Tarranis has an insane damage output. Most frigs die in one volley, cruisers in 4 or 5 and considering the rof of 3 ions with skills 4 or 5 volleys is not very long. I love it! Its close range nature does mean that you have to repair a lot though so I ALWAYS fit a small armour repair so i can warp out, repair and warp back again when beaten up.

The Taranis is a very good ship. If you like to get personal and very close to your target and look him/her in the eye before you blow him/her up, that the kind of ship you need to get. but if you don't like close combat then you have the wrong ship.

well, after the deliberate destruction of a bunch of frigate rats and the more or less accidental destruction of a corp mates vigil, i'd say its quite nice.
i found that a webbers useful to increase hit rate.
but i also found that you just have to be prepared to get hurt. orbitting rats didnt work too well - they could hit me thanx to the MWD sig increase, while i couldnt hit them at all. so instead i just mwded up to them and then unloaded on them, kinda the same as flying a blasterthron :P
note: i also tried it with a 10MN AB instead of the 1MN MWD. much the same. made me tougher, but due to PG problems i couldnt fit an armour repairer. whereas with the MWD, i did more damage (due to the damage mod i could now fit) and thus killed stuff quicker. i prefer it with MWD.
but i still prefer the crow over either setup :P (i also accidently killed that same corpmate with a rocket spamming crow :P)

I don't understand why so many people have the impression that they should be orbiting with a AB or MWD on... even if you're using a AB and don't have the sig increase doesn't mean you're going to hit them.

The speed boost is for the approach, not the orbit.

Agree totally the mwd is only for getting there orbit without it.

I take it you haven't engaged half a dozen rats who are all shooting missiles at you then?

anyone who says a 10mn ab on any frigate, is not needed for npc hunting,

i invite you on my next trip into 0.0 to introduce my claw to the guristas

when you see the vast numbers of missiles and torps chasing me, i think you'll see why i'm scared of going slow

if you slow dow whith that lot chasing you, for any reason
then next frame you get will be of the clone station if ther are torps, and of your pod if there are not

if you don't lag at death, then you'll see your ship surrounded by and becoming an explosion before you see your pod

Love the Taranis, but I'm far too much of a cowgirl with mine. Embarassed

That said, my original config went something like this:

3x light blasters
1x MWD, 1x scrambler, 1x web
1x mag stab, 1x cap power relay, 1x micro aux power core

Blasters were adjusted to whatever size y'could fit. Given that PG use has since decreased, you may not need the power core.

Oh -- and don't forget the drones.
