Class Complete. We had a fun little practical afterwards, popped this Tornado:

https://zkillboard.com/kill/75675227/

But we lost a few ships afterwards when we saw this Praxis start taking gate guns against Zox's bait Nereus, total lost was about 2 comets, 2 merlins, a condor, and the bait Nereus.

I did think 15 frigates would make short work of a Praxis, espectially with gate guns on our side. In retrospect I probably over-estimated our DPS, the Praxis was repping very well. And wow look, this is the last Praxis he lost:

https://zkillboard.com/kill/75678195/

It has two active mods AND a 1600 plate. No tackle mods, it's "true bait" meant only the get the other guy to engage... Or, or course, it's just a PVE ship and he was like "I'm just gonna derp this around".

As the last lesson for this class, remember: There is a LOT to learn, and looking over zkill to see how other people fit their ships will ALWAYS be educational... Note the two mid-slot mods, the '2x Denny Enduring Omnidirectional Tracking Link'.

Hope everyone enjoyed the class, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Fly dangerous, and remember: don't die.
