Gila level 4 and anoms

I'm thinking of trying out the Gila for a test ride and for that I've done some mild pyfa testing. My end result ended up on something like this:

[Gila, Gila pve]

Drone Damage Amplifier II
Drone Damage Amplifier II
Drone Damage Amplifier II

Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Pith C-Type Kinetic Deflection Field
Pith C-Type Thermal Dissipation Field
Pith C-Type Thermal Dissipation Field
10MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner

Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Scourge Light Missile
Drone Link Augmentor II

Medium Core Defense Field Purger II
Medium Core Defense Field Purger II
Medium Core Defense Field Purger II


Hammerhead II x2

Obviously I would bring more drones, rockets and MTU etc. How messed up is this fit? What obvious flaws? What can and should be done differently? This is intended for highsec pve. Hardeners will be changed to what missions needs it.

Re: Gila level 4 and anoms

Hi Flux,

Your query reminded me on this E-UNI forum thread: viewtopic.php?f=128&t=91877

It basically discusses the proper fit for a Gila running L4. Go check it out and if you still have queries do post it here.

Thank you and fly safe o/

Re: Gila level 4 and anoms

That is the post I based the fit around, however since that time Gila lost a low slot that would previously be used for shoring up the defence. Thus I wondered if this fit would be tanky enough for lvl 4 while having enough punch.

After further testing in pyfa I've decided to go safer with a shield regen module in low-slot until I learn the boundaries.
If someone sees improvements please let me know.

Re: Gila level 4 and anoms

I would be skeptical passive shield regen works well for L4.

I recommend using "Gila: Solo PvE - Active" posted at https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Gila. Tried it with my alt at L4 - works fine. Though, you do need to pay attention to your capacitor: you have enough cap for 3-4 minutes (with average skills) only, so you can't perma-run you shield booster. You can tank quite a lot, but you don't want to go into the brawling range, stay at some distance and reduce incoming DPS first.

Re: Gila level 4 and anoms

I have used that Gila fit for level 4's, it did fine. Kill scrams + webs first then pick an object and orbit it. Press F to pay respects.

If you're worried about the tank, carry shield power relays with you. If your tank can't hold, warp out of the site and refit.

Re: Gila level 4 and anoms

I did the Angel Extravaganza Bonus Room (famous for being one of the tougher L4s) in a close variant of this fit. I think the only change was that I used T2 hardeners, and cheap faction LSEs.

Re: Gila level 4 and anoms

I just refit my Gila like so:

  Code:
[Gila, 3xLSE 2xAIF + resist]

Drone Damage Amplifier II
Drone Damage Amplifier II
Damage Control II

10MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner
Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Adaptive Invulnerability Field II
Adaptive Invulnerability Field II

Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Inferno Light Missile
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Inferno Light Missile
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Inferno Light Missile
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher, Inferno Light Missile
Drone Link Augmentor I

Medium Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer II
Medium Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer II
Medium Anti-Thermal Screen Reinforcer I


Hammerhead II x2
Vespa II x2
Valkyrie II x2
Infiltrator II x2


Most of the mission rats I encounter are serpentis, so I could focus on Thermal / Kinetic, but I decided for a more omni approach to the shield resists, hence using resist rigs instead of core field purgers. This way when I run into drones, angel cartel, etc I don't have to fiddle with changing out hardeners or anything. I would rely more on keeping up angular velocity than passive regen, but hard to argue with 66k+ ehp in a cruiser. There's enough hull there with nearly 60% resists to get out if things go sideways, unlike the VNI, where if your shields are gone, you need to be getting the F out of Dodge.

I like the DDAs because the drone damage is still anemic, IMO. I'm just spoiled by the 700 DPS I can reach on the VNI with 4 DDAs and Ogres against bigger targets. Though you could easily run shield power relays in the lows for moar regen.
