I was just wondering whether this mission has been made more difficult or to be specific the boss Rachen Mysuna recently. I have done this mission with ease in the past using my raven, killing the boss etc., a corp mate in a basilisk as my tank coz i cba to tank myself :P.

But last night I went through the mission as normal getting to the last room killed off all the support and started on Mysuna, it took me nearly an hour of attempting to kill that guy before asking for assistance from a corp mate for extra DPS. I didn't manage to get into drone range though, I even warped out and fetched some T2 ammo (not knowing that the fury missiles actually pumped out less DPS -_-).

Just wanted to ask the forum guys whether the boss has been made more difficult, or anything has changed in the way of more defenders being deployed by the boss. I actually had one more BCS on me this time opposed to when i have previously killed him. I would also love to ask WTF are T2 Damage cruise missiles used for, seriously, the T1 missiles were doing 255 dmg per hit where as the crappy T2 missiles only gave 199 dmg, which is quite frankly aweful.

Just so you know i have all missile support skills to lvl 4 and cruise spec. to 3 (training 4).

Nothing changed at Vengeance mission but missile formula changed since Qr and for fury cruises look to exp radius Wink

I find the trick to be getting within drone range, or rather, getting drone range to them.

Fit a drone link (extra 20km range) and let loose the biggest drones in your bay. I use mediums but you could use heavies for the occassion if you really want.

The drones will give the the extra dps required to break the tank easily. And if you have a friend tanking too, use his drones too!

I used to kill him easily enough using a rokh.

Slow and/or big targets, obviously.
Get somebody else in a fast ship with a web in, or fit both a web and an afterburner, try to catch Rachen.
Alternatively, get Rigor rigs instead of your usual CCCs, and a target painter... or two.

I kill him before he gets out of range while tanking the support. Was using a Hyperion (I know it's not the ideal missioning ship but tanks pretty well).

Mistress has the correct answer, I use this tactic using my CNR & T2 medium drones... also be sure to read the mission reports: http://eve-survival.org/wikka.php?wakka=MissionReports

Reading the mission reports is the key to soloing lvl 4s, nothing worse than agroing an entire pocket. Well I did that once on purpose when a ninja showed up... stirred up a bees nest and warped out... heheWink

When I have this mission I bring along my afterburner and after kill some of the targets in the third room I will warp out to swtich a shield booster for the afterburner. Since I already got rid of some of the incoming damage, it is easier the second time in to get close to Mysuna using the afterburner and my drones.

Lots of ways to kill him. Good drone skills will do it. Afterburning until you are <20km from him will get you inside the effective range of his Defender missiles. Using a Rokh is an option, since the Defenders then have ho effect on the fight.

Ok thanks everyone :). I completely forgot about using a target painter, and i would have used an afterburner if there were any in the system to buy, but there wasn't :(. But thanks for the input, and i will probably use an afterburner next time, or get a drone increasey rangey module (whatever it's called). But still T2 missiles are **** :P
