Ship Fit: Ratting Hurricane – Passive Shield Tank

By Xeross Posted in EVE Online, Fittings, Good Fittings Comments (2)

Hello and welcome to another one of my fitting posts, this time we’ll be looking at the ship I’m using for ratting. A passive shield tanked hurricane. Now without further ado the fitting.

Acolyte I x6

As you can see this fit still uses T1 guns, this is because I can not use T2 medium artillery yet, so if you can swap out the current artillery with the T2 variant (However my EFT shows no DPS increase with them). Now onto some stats.

Shield DPS 594 (With 2 Exp. Dampener IIs)
Gun DPS 179 (Using EMP M)
Effective HP 70,264
Capacitor Lasts 15m 14s

The stats are based on NPCs that fire 96% explosive

As you can see with both dampeners being active this fit has a considerable amount of shield tank (Only 1 anomaly was able to break it but that was because I killed the wrong rats first), it is possible to increase it even further by swapping the Gyrostabilizers for more Shield Power Relays however this is at the expense of DPS.

So what do you think of this fit ?

Simple Chain Ratting Guide

By Xeross Posted in EVE Online, Guides Comments (8)

I’ve got a link to this guide from one of my corp mates, and it might proof useful to anyone that’s rattting. I don’t know who made it but all credits go to him/her.

Note: I have no idea if this guide is still accurate, lots of things have changed in EVE since I stopped playing, so keep that in mind.
