If you want to post a fit for a specific ship please search for the topic with the ship name as its subject. You can search either using the quick search toolbar above the topics pane or using advanced search options found on the top right next to the logout button. You may also find it easier to navigate discussions via the Megathread. If the ship is in active discussion, it can be found in the Fitting Discussions page. If the fit was published a while back it can be found under Released Fittings Archive.

If you did not find a topic for the desired ship, please post the fit here. Please be sure to read the Rules very carefully before posting. Once your post is noticed it will be moved to a new topic.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

I'd like to propose another Corax fit in addition to the ones already published. The purpose would be low cost, SPAMable PvP. It would be used in a similar way as BLAP Talwars, and has similar DPS, but needs better skills and has a number of advantages :

1. Much cheaper
2. More EHP
3. Has tackle (or optionally target painter/EWAR)

On the down-side, it is a bit slower and needs more fitting skills. I'm aware this fit violates a trend or preference here of prioritizing performance over cost (within reason) but I think particularly at the destroyer size point, having some low-cost fits published has a role to play. I feel it would get more people out in space trying things and learning from their mistakes in situations where we might otherwise just stay docked up.

I was looking for a Thorax fit for PVP and did not see any fits what so ever. Any care to share theirs.

I wanted to try out a Mastodon on my hauler alt, but there are no fittings on wiki (or here). Tried Bustard (shield), but also none. I took some ideas from Bustard fitting discussion and tried it on Mastodon, but I get only a sense of doom from looking at the result. Any ideas? Meant for hi-sec hauling, sometimes of valuable items around trade hubs.

Astero PVP Fit

Post by Bendak SK »

I read the "Rules - Please read before posting" thread and I think it told me to post here if I wanted to create a new topic. I hope I understood correctly. If not, I apologize in advanced.

------

I'm trying to come up with an Astero PVP Fit. Mostly hunting exploration frigates, but if I can participate at FW plexes with the same fit, that'd be ideal.

Is there a fairly stock PVP Astero Fit? I've done some looking around and have seen many different takes on a PVP Astero.

Some of the key features I think are best are:
Run an AB instead of a MWD
Dual Rep, 1 ancillary (should be cap stable with either of the two running)
Run a Scram
Maybe run a Webifier or Warp Disruptor in addition to the scram
Typically running Auxillary Nano Pumps

Are there any other key requirements? Are any of these not really a requirement?

One thing I hear is really good for hunting is combat probes (and subsequently an expanded probe launcher). But the expanded probe launcher alone takes up almost all of the CPU. Is there any reasonable way for an Astero to even fit one?

I tried to come up with a fit of my own which satisfies the above requirements. How does this look?

Uh the Astero...one ship, one thousand possible fits :D

The 'basic' WHC Scout Hunter Astero has served me quite well hunting explorers, scouting fleets and providing inital suprise tackle on targets.
The expanded Probe Launcher is a 'big ask' on an Astero.

Personally I would not consider using an Astero for intentional Faction Warfare Plex PVPing (outside of a rare target of opportunity) simply because other Navy Frigates will get you (potentially) more tank, more DPS and more 'PVP fits' for about 1/5th of the price of an astero. The Asteros 'main thing' is it's cloaking abilities. Good for jumping Explorers, scouting etc. maybe not ideal for solo-pvping in.

Thank you for the reply. Yeah, tell me about it. Every fit I found was different.

I'll give this fit a try then, if you suggest it.

For the FW I had planned on entering a plex, cloaking up, then only attacking prime targets. So I'll still be heavily leaning into the cloaking ability. Is even this not ideal for an Astero?

Cloaking inside the capture radius of a PLEX is not possible afaik. So you would have to cloak outside that radius and then come in from a distance, loosing the suprise factor a bit. Comparativly, if I was sitting in a decent fit navy frig I would welcome your Astero uncloacking 20-30k away and coming in closer :D

Okay, thanks. I didn't realize cloaking was not possible. I also didn't realize navy frigs outclass Astero's, so that's good to know lol. I won't be chasing any navy frigs anytime soon then :p.
