Kronos vs. Navy Mega
« on: December 23, 2008, 07:03:14 pm »
Need abit of help deciding which expensive BS I should aim for after my Domi. PvE fit.

Messing around in EFT: I get:
Navy Mega: 398 DPS/1875 Volley with CN Antimatter, 7x 350s.
712 DPS tank against Kin/Therm

Kronos: 467 DPS with CN Antimatter and 4x 425s
Can fit tractor and 2x salvagers on remaining highs
900 some DPS tank with a lower level Marauder skill (Im not getting Marauders V for a LONG time).


(If I have the money, I can push the tank a few hundred DPS higher with plex mods, but I think 700+ is sufficient for most L4s).


EDIT: Navy mega has about even DPS with Kronos due to the 2 additional Ogre IIs I can fit. But I might decide to forgo the heavy drones in exchange for 5x meds/5x lights and 10x meds/5x lights because I'll want something to take down frigs with.

Im leaning towards Kronos since it's abit faster and I can salvage on the go, but is there anything I should know about Marauders before making the jump? I'll be using it mainly for L4 missions, L5 plexes. Probably dont have balls to take into 0.0 unless I find a very nice corp there.


Any advice?

well only advise is that navy megas are a LOT cheaper but the kronos will get you more isk per hour as long as it isnt destroyed

Its sort of not the same thing, ya know. On the one side you have a faction BS(still tech 1) and a tech 2 battleship. It's like comparing an Ishtar vs. Vexor navy issue. The ishtar will come out on top 9,5 out of 10 times.
Generally tech 2 is more bang for the buck, and if I could fly a marauder - I would ;)

Don't use the Kronos to mission!  Whatever you do!  You'd lose that thing when you least expect it and kicking yourself in the ass for it.

PvP, your going to lose it, so might as well go out with a bang! =D
