Wormhole Suicide Trip Preparations 02

I’m leaning towards burning a Loki for this little experiment. Given my lack of solo PVP skills, it should die in a horribly embarrassing and inept way, probably on my first jump. I figure it is ok if that is what I am aiming for.

The first thing I wanted to confirm was what skill points you lost

This old Dev Blog indicates it is a rank off one of the racial subsystem skills. I only have those at rank 4, so can handle that.

Next I played around with a basic setup with Covert, Exploration and Interdiction Nullifier subsystems. This one seemed to work out ok:

[Loki, WH Suicide Trip – Shield]
Damage Control II
Gyrostabilizer II
Gyrostabilizer II

Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrocarbon Microwarpdrive
Warp Disruptor II
Stasis Webifier II
Sensor Booster II, Scan Resolution
Invulnerability Field II

Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Expanded Probe Launcher I, Sisters Core Scanner Probe I
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M

Medium Gravity Capacitor Upgrade I
Medium Core Defence Field Extender I
Medium Core Defence Field Extender I

Loki Defensive – Adaptive Shielding
Loki Electronics – Emergent Locus Analyzer
Loki Offensive – Covert Reconfiguration
Loki Propulsion – Interdiction Nullifier
Loki Engineering – Augmented Capacitor Reservoir

Does 303dps, 35K EHP, resists are ok and moves at 1340m/s.

I then played around with other fittings, dropping the Interdiction Nullifier for a low sig, 100MN AB variant.

[Loki, WH Suicide Trip – Sig Radius]
Damage Control II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
Medium Armor Repairer II
Gyrostabilizer II

100MN Afterburner II
Warp Disruptor II
Stasis Webifier II
Sensor Booster II, Scan Resolution
Cap Recharger II

Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Expanded Probe Launcher I, Sisters Core Scanner Probe I
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M
425mm AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet EMP M

Medium Gravity Capacitor Upgrade I
Medium Anti-Kinetic Pump I
Medium Anti-Explosive Pump I

Loki Defensive – Amplification Node
Loki Electronics – Emergent Locus Analyzer
Loki Offensive – Covert Reconfiguration
Loki Propulsion – Fuel Catalyst
Loki Engineering – Power Core Multiplier

Does 203dps, but only has 23K EHP, with pretty average Kinetic and Explosive resists. It does however move at around the same speed at 1360m/s. The armor rep is more about repairing after combat, given I won’t have support with me. This fitting needs more work and more EHP. I like the concept that it has a sig radius as low as an interceptor with a MWD operating, but I am not sure how that works out in reality.

Both fittings has a probe strength of 94.8.

Once I settle on a fit, I’ll go look at what reasonably priced faction modules I can use to boost things up a bit, and to give the solo rifter pilot who kills me some worthwhile loot.

    • I had 1,000 excuses at the time – I assume I am going to lose them, so 1 day skill loss is much easier to shrug away than 4 days. If I had rank V I might be prone to be even more risk adverse. I don’t fly them that often, so the training time wasn’t worth it. It would take over 80 days to get rank V in all the subsystems, and so on… but mostly the real answer is the toon is a Jack of all trades, not a min/max one, and I just moved on to the next thing I wanted him to do.
