Bastards Recruitment

It's been a busy time for us Bastards as our recruitment inbox has been quite busy. We welcome Jubes to The Bastards; my ex-Black-Flag pirate and all round bad ass. He is a known quantity and well known to friends and enemy alike.

Three we had to reject due to insufficient SPs or not quite fitting in or the obvious spy. Thank God for EVE-SEARCH I say!

The other nine or so are at various stages of processing with two on the cusp of joining us. An exciting period for sure. All the handling and man-management of these applications has shortened the time for Yarr; at least this week but I intend to get back to some wanton acts of destruction very soon.

The current Bastards recruitment thread is here. Give us a shout if you think you can roll with us. We have a minimum SP requirement of 4Million SPs; just to ensure that you have a broad enough base for low-sec work.

However, just to keep you chaps interested and for one or two who has asked about a suitable Jaguar setup. Here it is with my skills; the original setup was by Viper Sam:

Damage Control II
Mark I Generator Refitting: Diagnostic System
Micro B88 Core Augmentation

Medium Shield Extender II x2
1MN Afterburner II
Warp Scrambler II

125mm Gatling AutoCannon II x3 (Hail, Barrage and Rep Fleet EMP)
'Arbalest' Rocket Launcher I (Gremlin)

Anti-Kinetic Screen Reinforcer I
Core Defence Field Extender I

  • Approx 4k shield,
  • NO Shield resistances lower than 63%,
  • Pretty fast at 900m/s,
  • Cap independent.
I tried to fit a WD II in but it required some adjustments. Give it a go - this puppy will own most frigates and assault frigates but don't get too cocky!

I like the Jag fit (having lost mine through ratting in 0.4) but I'm PvE not PvP.
Any comments on whether you'd alter it for rat-based life ?

Ratting! What’s that??? ;-)

I would try the passive shield tank Jag for ratting. I used a Jag to rat in 0.0 many moons ago, and I could tank Angel rats easily, even the 1.7mil and faction ones. You just have to kill the scramming and webbing rats first, then burn up to the BS rats at full speed and orbit at very close range to mess up their tracking, don’t forget to turn off your MWD once in range.

Try this fit out:

[Jaguar, Guristas Ratting]
Shield Power Relay II
Power Diagnostic System II
Shield Power Relay II

Medium Shield Extender II
Kinetic Deflection Amplifier II
Heat Dissipation Amplifier II
1MN MicroWarpdrive II

200mm AutoCannon II, EMP S
200mm AutoCannon II, EMP S
150mm Light AutoCannon II, EMP S
'Arbalest' Rocket Launcher I, Gremlin Rocket

Anti-Kinetic Screen Reinforcer I
Anti-Kinetic Screen Reinforcer I

The SPR II’s give you a nice shield regen (almost the same as a medium shield booster II) for no cap.

Obviously change the 2 x shield amps (and the resist rigs) for the rat damage type you’ll be fighting as i've tanked this setup for Gurista rats (kinetic and thermal) with a respectable kinetic 75.8% and thermal 77.7%.

You can find out rat damage types here: http://eve.grismar.net/wikka.php?wakka=DamageTypes

One last tip, I found that once I had my technique down, I could pretty much permatank most rats but it took some time to kill the 1mil+ BS rats. So I dropped the SPR II's and the shield amps and added 2 x gyros (best named) dropped down to smaller ACs (for fitting) and brought some hail s for more DPS. I also added a web and scram and glad I did because I caught a few other ratters off guard from time to time. YARRR!

Hope that helps and good luck,

Oh huh. 4 million SP requirement. I missed that somehow. I also don't meet it. I just found the bastards Website and Thread rather than anything else. That other thread has some stuff I didn't see elsewhere. Neato.

Don't worry, Hallan, we've taken you under our wing already. ;)
