Post Tech level 4?
I have looked all around the starter galaxies for Pilot tech level 4. I searched Nexus and the surrounding galaxies but could not find Tech level 4.

Why would Nexu Stations sell Level 4 ships but not teach Level 4 Pilot Tech?

Once you get out of the Nexus by going through Deep Space, the ai bases will have it up to 5 or higher.


Just have to explore.

I noticed that as well, but didn't say anything.
Go to Sol. Nexus>Deep Space>Celestial Gardens Outpost>Sol.

Hey, thank you again :)

So deep space leads to Sol then. nice. and Sol is the center of this Universe.

Outlying galaxies probably tend to be more pilot friendly while closer to Sol, the law and order players tend to have more influence. < Just a guess.

One-man Pirate raid on the Throne! wwwheeee! (j/k :lol: )

If you click any galaxy on the map, it will tell you its danger factor. That number is zero for galaxies like Sol but rises to 400 in the farthest reaches of the universe. It determines what hostile AI can be found there and also figures into the calculation of what level player you can attack and be attacked by.

I am trying to join volcom piratres. I got stronger weapons and a better generator.

Still I cannot take out those Praxis Freighters. one of my weapons is the squat Laser...my energy pool is 3000. Better weapons, better energy. yet a freighter is still too strong for me to take out.

??

I have the Etheral and Squat Lasers. Being tech 3 I thought they would do serious damage... My Generator is Quantum Bank. How is it even with all this power, I make no dent on AI Freighters?

Use mining damage for the paxes, they are weak to it

My Mining Laser Deluxe still does nothing. It shouldn't be this hard to take our freighters. It's the Volcom Mission in Nexus.

My Mining laser does 70 damage....nothing damages it. I run out of energy before one of them runs out of shield. I burn through 3000 Energy with a Mining Laser Deluxe w/o denting the Freighter.

I found that getting Drone Deployment to 3, Piloting to 5, Equipment to 3, Engines to 2, Weaponry to 1, and Electrical Engineering to about 3 would destroy everything level 100 or below, and that's by using only half of the alloted skillpoints for an F2P.

Edit: Also, make sure to use your ship's Super Special Secondary! Right-click it, and add it to the hotkeys. They're mega useful at low levels.

Lasers, Mining. Nothing dents the Paxinimus freighters.

These newer weapons (Pulse Gun and Mag Cannon 2) seem like a waste.

is it possible to destroy these Paximinus freighters? I have the best weapons for my energy generator and nothing works.

Because of recent changes, they've been made very hard to kill.
Try killing weaker SI in the meantime, such as Queen Rats, in order to level up and get better gear. You may want to head over and get a Paximinus yourself, as they are VERY good low tech ships.

I want to Join the Volcom Pirate Clan. I cannot if I can't beat this quest :(

In order to be Pirate you need to beat their Missions I thought.

Are all freighters this hard to kill? if so I don't want to be a pirate.

You should also look into getting a higher tech energy generator.

You can't join an AI team, but you can do their missions.

You can, however, pirate real players later in the game. However, most people will regard you as a scumbag and Strawberry Pancakes will stomp you, unfortunately.

Drone deployers are probably the strongest specialization an F2P can go into. Get Drone Deployment to 5 and Piloting to 5, then you can destroy many things with a greater level than yours.
