Guardian's Gala sites

I've just ran my first site. Inside were 1 wave of 5 frigates, 1 wave of 5 cruisers, 1 wave of 1 battlecruiser which dropped only a skin. Cruisers use web. All Angels. The frigates take a lot of tracking to hit. Bounties: 10k for a frigate, 120k for a cruiser, 250k for a battlecruiser.

UPD: ran 3 sites, got 3 skins.

What would be the best combination of tracking links, target painters and webifiers to maximize damage to frigates if I have 4 or 5 free mid slots on my Gila?

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

Yet to try those sites, but last event I was using fed navy omni tracking link (mostly because all the others sold out), results were... lacklustre, you still get quite a lot of misses.

I'm guessing it will be slightly better with Valkyries for this event,

Your best bet against frigs in a Gila would be rapid light missiles though

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

I'm now leaning more towards optimizing damage dealt to the battlecruiser spawn to be able to compete better.

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

I have yet to run the sites myself. However, I am wondering will the drop change to something else instead of just skins?

Further, is it good to specifically tank our BC against the Angels rather than Omnitank our fit?

Thanks and I will definitely post my experience here as well.

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

Since you are competing for sites most of the time and you never know about gankers I would personally omnitank

Good advice. I will try it first and see what happens.

Thank you.

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

So after running around 25 sites now, I think Gila with a web and an omnidirectional tracking link scripted for tracking works good enough against frigates. My other mids are mwd, 2 x large shield extenders and a warp disruptor for when someone thinks they can steal your stuff.

If you're looking for something that wins contests more easily, Gila is not the best since it's not the amount of dps that counts but the final blow. You will always be at a disadvantage against turret based ships.

And remember to set your safety to GREEEN, so you don't end up like this guy:

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

I was finally able to run a Gala Site with my Ferox using the following fit:

[Ferox]
Mark I Compact Reactor Control Unit
Magnetic Field Stabilizer II
Damage Control II
Magnetic Field Stabilizer II

Explosive Deflection Field II
Kinetic Deflection Field II
Large Shield Extender II
10MN Monopropellant Enduring Afterburner
Tracking Computer II
Large Shield Extender II

Core Probe Launcher I
250mm Prototype Gauss Gun, Iridium Charge M
250mm Prototype Gauss Gun, Iridium Charge M
250mm Prototype Gauss Gun, Iridium Charge M
250mm Prototype Gauss Gun, Iridium Charge M
250mm Prototype Gauss Gun, Iridium Charge M
250mm Prototype Gauss Gun, Iridium Charge M

Medium Core Defense Field Extender I
Medium Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer I
Medium Core Defense Field Extender I

Hobgoblin II x4

And it was very easy, I simply maintain optimal range and snipe each Angel Cartel coming my way. By doing so, I was not hit nor were the NPC able to reach me.

With regard to having someone contest my site, there was one time when a Vexor flew in but he just orbited a bit and warped to a different site. I don't know the reason though as to why he did not proceed to contest my site.

In any case, I assumed that because I was using rails then I can ultimately deliver the final below, hence he may have assume that it is not worth his time to contest my site. Anyway, just a assumption and not a fact.

All in all, it was easy and may be profitable if you get the expensive skins.

My only concern is that I lost 1 Drone because I was not paying attention to the fact that Angel Cartel Ships were attacking my drones or hitting on them. In relation to this, any advice on how to correctly handle our drones while running Gala sites or combat sites and the like (if applicable)?

Thank you and hope to hear your comments.

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

Low cost (11m) Thrasher fit that face tanks at close range without prop mod on. Manual piloting can help reduce damage on shields to allow you to do more than one site in quick succession.

Downside is that I need to repair shields when there's a lot of sites in the system or my piloting sucks. It is great to sneak a few sites in a hostile system if you don't want to take expensive ships there.

It works great once you figure out the spawn points. Not as fast as the Svipul but can do a site in 3-4 mins. Just orbit at 500m the battlecruiser at the end and you'll be able to snag the loot and warp out quickly. I use about 70% ammo that is loaded in the guns to finish a site and reload when warping to the next.

Re: Guardian's Gala sites

You can start preparing for the soon-to-come new event Rogue swarm
https://updates.eveonline.com/date/2017-06-13/#

It will probably take the same form as previous events, so skill up destryoer/cruiser skills!

Drones do kin/therm/explo damage and are weak against EM.
