its rokh! the rokh is a beautiful battleship, and it utterly destroys level 4's. But as with most tier 3 battleships, u need a LOT of sp to use it properly. My setup Highs 8x 425mm Railgun II's Meds 2x Caldari Navy Therm Harderners 2X Caldari Navy Kin Hardeners 1x Caldari Navy X-L Shield booster 1x Cap Recharger II Lows 3x Dread Gurita Mag Stabs 1x Domination Tracking Enchancer 1x Flux Capacitor coil II Rigs 1x Ancillary Current Router 1x Capacitor control circuit II 1x Capacitor control circuit I Dronebay 5x Vespa II's (U can swap out all the faction stuff for T2 modules and still tank every lvl4 there is, save for perhaps serpentis room 2 of worlds collide) I have also done Lvl 5's in this baby with Basilisk Logistic RR support. Once you have the skills (17m sp), the Rokh cuts thru encounter missions like a hot knife through butter. Can't stop the rokh, you can't stop the rokh!

Level 4 missions are pretty easy to solo in a Drake. It's got a very strong tank due to the same +25% resistances as the rokh but it has a much smaller signature radius. You have to fit t2 heavy missile launchers though, otherwise it will take forever to kill a battleship. t2 heavy missile launchers combined with fury ammunition and 3 ballistic control systems brings down battleships fast. Also by using a missile boat you can choose your damage type. Look up the one to use for each mission at http://eve-survival.org/wikka.php?wakka=MissionReports My blog detailing my ship setup is at: http://sdpagent.wordpress.com/2008/07/27/eve-online-missioningpvp/

I've run lots of level 4s with best named guns and BS IV in the rokh, but I always looked up the mission description first: http://eve-survival.org/wikka.php?wakka=MissionReports And it takes practice to get the hang of using range to your advantage. Sometimes warping in to make a bookmark, warping out, and then warping in 100km from that bookmark and using Lead ammo to kill a lot of the frigs worked for me. (Non deadspace missions obviously).

Similar to Manasi, I'm waiting on my tech 2 guns and Battleship 5 skill, which should be by the end of the month. Tried lev 4 in my Rokh a while back and got scrammed and killed all too quickly.

Nice to read an enthusiastic post about missions! You've got loads of fitting advice above, so I'll shut up about that. Anyway, good read :)

Yup yup mbp is right, as you pointed out as well syncaine the passive tank works..to a point. if you have Caldari BS 5 then you get 25% resists across the board, WHICH really helps. Where is shines though is in active tanking. For either BS I run 1 Cap 2 recharger, 1 Cap injector, 1 best shield booster I can find. I try to pump the resists as high as i can with the active hardeners, then just before i hit 40% shields ( shields are most effective at 30% recharge) I toggle the booster, if no improvement or increases in shields align to point and get rdy to bail. I have withstood the onslaught of 8 BS till i could kill 3 before i have to bail in the rokh ( again due to no hybrid T2's yet) BTW i trigger the cap injector once cap hit 40%. Good hunting. -theMule

Hi Syncaine I am nowhere near being able to do level 4's but I just completed lvl 3 Blockade in a passive shield tanked cruiser http://mindbendingpuzzles.blogspot.com/2008/07/eve-online-almost-blockaded.html. I have found that a passive shield tank works well under two different conditions - 1. In cases of moderate incoming dps, (perhaps where you use distance to avoid a lot of the incoming damage) the Passive shield tank keeps going forever without any user input and doesn't drain cap. Allows you to pick off enemies at your leisure. 2. In cases of high incoming dps the passive shield tank allows you to warp in and pick off one or two enemies while your big shield soaks up damage. Then when your shield gets to below 25% you get ready to warp out and prepare for the next pass. Your amour provides a safety buffer if you take a bunch of damage while preparing to warp. I have one concern about Passive shield tanking a battleship though. Generally a passive shield tank uses one or more oversized shield extenders (medium on a destroyer, large on a cruiser). However there doesn't seem to be any extra large shield extenders available and I doubt that the increase in shields from fitting a large extender to a battle ship will be all that impressive.

The passive tank works really well (3 x LSE IIs, 2 x hardeners) for most missions, there is just a handful where the incoming fire is so much that the buffer disappears too quickly and I have to warp out once or twice. I ran all my missions with best named 350mms and that passive tank. Only in the past couple months have I got the Tech II 350mms (love em) and tried an active tank (hardeners, xl shield boost + amp, cap boost) which seems to provide more tank while I have cap charges 800s.

I too tried to do LVL 4's solo in a Rokh, but they turned out poorly to say the least. I love my Rokh, but a mission runner it will not be till I get T2 hybrids on it. Glad your having some measure of success. The nice thing is I can solo LVL 4's in my Raven (active shield tanked), so till mt T2 hybrid skills get better my raven is my mission runner of choice. Good on you m8 for making thr Rokh work. The boosts to the resists are REALLY nice ! -Manasi
